At a Crossroads

It seems to happen every year around this time, change, growth, and a bit of depression. I'm doing something right now that I've never really done...I'm goal setting. I have every excuse to kinda of give up right now, half of the people I know are looking at me thinking how is she going to work this out, the deal is I'm not, God is. But in order for that to happen I need to take action.

I have no clue how my bills are going to get paid this month, but instead of getting all trapped in fear I enrolled in a GED class. If I don't get some kind of education this cycle of not being able to pay my bills is likely to never end. I have spent many years in fear over my GED, I have tried going to classes for it before and failed, but I've never tried sober...it's a whole new ballgame!

  2. Emily, I *KNOW* you can do this. Honestly - I really do and I'm rooting for you big time. Going back to school was one of the best things I ever did. I made many attempts but wasn't able to finish - until I got sober. You will finish too! You are an intelligent woman who is most definitely able to tackle the GED - no problem!!!

  3. It's the many years of fear you let keep you from acheiving your education. You also thought you couldn't do it without alchohol, now you know you can, you are so much stronger now! Face your fear and get the education you need to go on with your life.

  4. I have my BA in school - yet I struggle. Okay Emily, no fear needed here. You write like a writer - which you now are :) - No choice here - GED is a must for you. We all have fear with the unknown. Again, I do think you are a gifted in writing to be read. Key word.. writing to be read ! You do that well. I wish you courage in school !!
