Yes, I am a 45 year old divorced single mother of two who is happy with her life.
Stay true to yourself and don’t forget your dreams. Remember your goals and that they can be achieved.
I have learned that I am stronger than I thought. I have learned that I am a survivor and that I have the strength, knowledge and skills to overcome any obstacle.
Besides gaining more financial freedom, I would really like to be in a relationship.
I made a decision a year ago to live and love life. I went to seminar on the Evidenced based study of being happy. The speaker gave us a 21-day challenge of strategies to employ if we started the “poor me” thinking. I realized that my life is not bad and I remember throughout the day what I have in my life that makes me thankful.
Having a good prayer life keeps me grounded.
That at one time I thought my happiness depended on my husband and if I could make him happy then I would be happy.
Don’t let anyone define who you are and what you want to do in life.
I would change my eating habits so I can finally lose weight.
I am proud that I am considered a mentor and role model to others in my life such as co-workers and friends.
I am the happiest right now.
Warm, strong, loving, nurturing, caring, funny, faithful, smart, family oriented, and driven.
