You learn to appreciate those conflicted times like ridged edges when your life gets smooth. It allows something to hold on to.
The beauty in failure is that you may be so low, a new direction and new road may present itself, the one less traveled. Change is inevitable and necessary for growth so instead of sulking in despair, find the opportunity. This series is an in progress writing collection that illustrates my steps to healing and enlightenment. Progress is not linear nor is it vertical. Sometimes going back a few steps or even all the way to square one is the answer. It is recommended that you read 5th to the Finish Line prior to indulging in this collection as it serves as an introduction and may give you insight to my timeline. Unintentionally, my work has tied together through different life experiences and I couldn't be more grateful to where it has brought me thus far.
