Because of the belief in myself and my Lover's belief in me I no longer run and hide. I stand firm and face that which life throws in my path. I no longer seek confrontation but allow it to come to me, then brace myself and stand firm. The hardest lesson I ever had to learn was, “no one will ever believe in me unless I believe in myself first”. All of the above is who I am, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Lover, Business Owner and now Author. All of these items are what makes me very much me. At heart side by side we fight for what we love and believe in. We stand firm unwilling to accept defeat.
