One Day I Just Woke Up


Sometimes, victims don’t realize that they are victims.

It took me a very long time (40 years) to realize that I was abused.  As a child, we were abused with beatings, but it became my “normal”.  So, when I got married, I found someone to “abuse” me verbally.

I wasn’t able to see it, until one day I just “woke up”.

It took every ounce of courage I could muster to leave him.

I had received a bit of Angelic Divine help at every step, but I have always hidden this, looking at it as a curse rather than a boon.  I was given the ability to see my own death if I stayed with him, and the only way to keep living was to leave him.

That was 5 years ago and I’m grateful I ROAR!ed…  I left with a ROAR!  It wasn’t labeled that until now.

Today, my daughter, Mary Joy and I looked at wisdom cards. ‘I have had Divine Guidance in my past, in the present, and all the way into the future.’  It brought me to tears to read it.

I’ve decided that the wisdom I have is to be shared now.  ROAR!!!

Maybe it’s just for me to see what I’m supposed to be about now.
Maybe I can help others to recognize their Inner Selves.
Maybe I’m just supposed to take it one day at a time.
All I know is that I recognized the Divinity within me and am willing to follow the Guidance.

I’m so proud of my wise wonderful daughter, Mary Joy, who has found her brave Self and is willing to follow her own wisdom.    Mary Joy’s ROAR!:

Together, we are NOT looking back.
Together, we have the patience to follow our hearts.
Together, we will have the freedom we so richly deserve.

Cinda, you are a huge part of the wisdom that all victims of abuse… all kinds of abuse… can hold onto and move forward out of the ashes of their story. Thank you for being part of mine.
