I wanted to write from my heart about my blog and the whole reason why I started it to share the inspiration behind it. For over 3/4 of my life I was miserable. I did not love myself or my life and I was searching for all that I was missing. I was always unhappy, sad, angry, and had a void an emptiness inside of me. I had been hurt so much in my past and I carried all that pain and the effects of it with me. I felt like I was a mistake. I felt unloved and unwanted. I felt like I would always have a second rate life because of my past experiences. I was going down the wrong road of life and had created very unhealthy habits to ease the pain that was in my heart.
It took me almost losing my life in a car accident for me to learn and experience what life was really all about. I had to get a taste of death to realize what living was. I had to come to the end of myself in order for God to get a hold of me. It took 36 broken bones, 6 compound fractures, broken neck, brain injuries, a coma, life support, and life long disabilities for me to learn that true happiness, peace, and love has nothing to do with what is going on around us. It all comes from within us.
I have learned what it means to love and enjoy every moment of life. I have learned that my past does not dictate my future. I have found all the things that I was searching the world for. I have learned how to love myself, faults and all. And I have learned all of this from my personal relationship with God.
Because I know what it feels like to be miserable and to be incomplete my hearts breaks for those in the same situation. And since I have experienced how to go from misery to loving myself and my life I want to spread that information to anyone that will listen in hopes of helping them. I am proof that we can have a enjoyable life no matter what our circumstances may be like. I have more daily challenges now then I ever had before but I love my life more than ever before. I face more daily struggles but I am happier than ever. I am stuck in the physical state that I am in but I love myself more than ever before. I am proof that happiness comes from within and that happens from knowing the love that God has for us.
I am here to bring hope to the hopeless, light to the darkness, encouragement to the discouraged. I want people to know the truth that covers the lies of the enemy. And I want people to know that their life is worth fighting for.
Please help me to share this hope by spreading the word about my blog https://theabundantlife4u.wordpress.com
