A Fight For Survival

Scar survivalfight to survive color

Never before have I been so public about anything going on in my life as a general rule. I was taught growing up that family business is family business and even if you are hurting you don’t complain…you just DO – get up, shake it off…go to work “grunt and get it done”!

However, time, age, experience, and wisdom changes our views, opinions, and our moral and ethical compass are formed in varying measures as we gain our own experiences to keep what we need and we leave the rest behind….

It occurred to me that my family and I are going through a whole lot of changes, specifically speaking about since the wreck, in general…..and this is not something that should be done alone or without support, or at the very least, self education and growing awareness.  I am also learning, through my own self-discoveries of self – what I call my “new normal” and still seeking to adjust to the changes that have engulfed my realm.

“All living things contain a measure of madness that moves them in strange, sometimes inexplicable ways. This madness can be saving; it is part and parcel of the ability to adapt. Without it, no species would survive.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”
