I have come to believe that I gave up enough of my life to fret, worry and
discord. I have changed my mind and choose to walk on the path of hope, good works, and taking very special care of my precious self.

Most of my life I was shy. More than shy, I was afraid of people. I could only communicate by being rough and tough, or a desperate victim.

Raising my hand and sharing in meetings taught me that I do have something to say. The people in the meetings starting responding to me differently when I was able to share about the new solutions I was learning.

We know all about what we do not want.
