Welcome To My New Life!

"Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal." 

~ Pamela Vaull Starr

So far this year, I have:

Finished my novel.
Started work on my first documentary.
Lined up 2 more films to work on.
Lined up 3 more books to write.
Finally taken a walk don Brighton pier.
Begun to embrace who I really am.
Am more secure and happy with who I am.
Have lost even more weight.

So much has happened this year and I don't think I've been thankful for it once. This year I celebrated 6 years of being clean of drink and drugs. A friend of mine threw a fantastic online party for me (don't ask how we did it but it involved a lot of rude, yet funny, comments on Facebook!). I'm so much more comfortable with who I am, with the person I've grown in to. No longer am I frightened of people on the street, of walking around a corner and coming face to face with those I who want to hurt me. Quite the contrary in fact. Now I'm in a place where I'd have them running for cover.

I am NOT a victim. I am NOT a survivor. I am ME! A beautiful, strong and, confident and proud woman. A woman who demands the attention of those around her. A woman who is heading to make a difference in this world. I love the woman I have become! And I love the changes that I am constantly making. I am proud that I am clean. I am proud of what I have become.

I am grateful for everything that's happening in my life right now. Grateful for those who love me and support me. I am grateful for the opportunities I am being given.

Welcome to my new life!

  1. Hello Rae!
    I've heard from Sorcha that you'll be sending me a letter via the swap - what fun! If you drop me an email at: macymilly@hotmail.com I can send you my postal address.
    I'm fascinated with all your writing (a novel!) and film work, and looking forward to reading more posts in the future :-)
    Have a fab weekend,
    Denise x
