I created "When I Grow Up" for Dirty Scraps Challenge #5. I am way too late to post it there but it's here for everyone to see!
Journaling: When I was growing up I was encouraged to be anything I wanted to be. I dreamed of being Prime Minister, a policitian or a lawyer so I could change our world. I never dreamed I'd grow up to be stressed, over-exerted, extremely depressed. I never longed to be angry, bitter or resentful. But through years of fighting for recovery I learned to fight for what matters. I learned to be a better mom, wife, friend. I am building a business in helping others to see hope. I volunteer at Celebrate Recovery. I am happy.
