Dear supporters, friends, and family:

This is a post that I will be quoting from my Facebook page, for those of you who haven't seen this announcement. (I will also be posting beneath it.)

"I haven't updated my blog since before the last Dr. Phil rerun. I've been scared. I've been weak. I've let my head tell me that I shouldn't fight this battle, because my sisters and mother are still gone. I've let cutting, stinging words of people across the nation tell me that I'm wrong for speaking out. Well, guess what? Giving into those false judgments was the only wrong aspect of the past year. I'd like to share three favorite quotes:

I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me, and not terrify me... If you want something you never had, you have to do something you've never done... Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear.

Those are three quotes that inspire me, all in the same category. Think about the growth we have to go through in life, whether emotional, physical, spiritual, mental... we must experience pain and/or conquer fear in order to grow and progress. Luckily, faith is there. And with faith, I am learning to overcome my fears and dedicate my life to the amazing journey God has in store for me. I am proud to announce that after months of emotional, mental and spiritual healing, I will be posting again--religiously! I will be speaking out about abuse, my healing process, becoming whole, and of course talking about my sisters and mom. Please, if you or anyone you know would be interested, share my link with them. I look forward to connecting with many strong souls all over this country. Love sent to you all."

From the deepest part of my heart, I want to apologize to all of my supporters for my absence. I missed out on precious months of continuous posts, and when I could have been speaking out for my sisters and other abuse survivors, I was silent. As stated above, I gave into fear that was thrown at me for speaking out.

However, as much as I want to apologize, the past months have been so healing for my mental/emotional/spiritual health. I have grown and become incredibly stronger. I see my potential for what it is truly worth, and I am coming back with more resilience than I ever thought I could possess! There is so much more to say on behalf of my sisters and my abuse recovery. I am back, and I am here to stay. 

In conclusion, I am re-arranging my blog back into it's original position, before the Dr. Phil re-run in August. But before it is sorted back into the history of this blog, I would like to draw attention to the numerous comments and discussions that were posted to the first Dr. Phil post. I wish I could post all of them here, but there would literally be a lack of space! I highly recommend reading through these many strong abuse survivor's stories and comments. I am touched with all of the support, all of the strength within these souls. I am sure that if my sisters were here, they would be equally as overcome with gratitude.

Thank you all for everything. Here's to the future!



  1. Happy you are back and feeling better!

  2. Bless you and keep going and gaining strength and be positive. I believe you will find happiness in life. I was abused by my father and then by a husband and more brain washing. Well I survived and found happiness and I am sure you will.
