Life’s lessons aren’t always easy

June 7, 2011 at 11:13 am 2 comments

Going through one of the hardest times in my life and hitting rock bottom made me, and still is making me, stand stronger than ever before. I hope that I can be just that little bit of encouragement or motivation for someone else way out there that thinks there is no hope or that nothing is ever going to be any different to stand back up and dust off and realize that we get one chance at this thing we call “life.” And, the only person that can define you is “you”.

Sometimes we get caught up in a routine that the days just pass us by, then one day things come to sudden stop. Could be tragedy or devastation or waking up in critical care or many, many, other situations. It’s then we do the “looking back at time that has passed” and wonder just where the time has gone and how did we get ourselves in such a fog.

We will never get that time back but we can sure make tomorrow worth while, there is hope for a better tomorrow whatever walk of life you are in. Don’t take anything for granted, never give up  and each day cherish a little more and love a little deeper.

    Kristin, your speech was so inspiring. I felt your anger, and emotion throughout and felt it as well. They always say you have to hit rock bottom before you can begin climbing up. I hope you keep climbing and wish nothing but the best for you and your children.
