a little about me if you don't already know!
from a young age was i exposed to domestic violence. when i entered my teens i fell pregnant and again became a victim of abuse, beaten daily and almost killed several times by an abusive partner.
my inner strength came through and i finally escaped the cycle, raising my young child as a sole parent. years later i became the ceo of my own company.
i was encouraged by my daughter a few years ago to tell my story. i have never and probably will never say out loud what happened to me but by putting in down on paper (pardon the pun) it has helped me exercise some demons that i had buried deep down inside.
it has been a very difficult journey, one at times i wanted to stop in it's tracks. i have been told many times during my life time that "everything happens for a reason" i never believed this as the hell i lived through could never have possibly been for a reason or so i thought.
since putting the first part of my story out there i have had so many people reach out to me and tell me how my life has influenced them. i had a young school girl tell me she did an assignment on my life (wow what a gift) i have also had a few people tell me i saved their lives! all this feedback made me keep going because maybe those words where right "everything happens for a reason"
take care and stay unbroken xx emily xx
Wow a baby girl, all midwives and nurses looked at me as they hold you.
In same night, same hospital right after 15 minutes, wow another baby girl!
Our childhood was very positive and we enjoyed being twins.
You will be my special bride maid in my wedding I told her. But my bride maid never came in my wedding!
I have never had the thought that one day we will be separated from each-other.
Touching story of twins.
Think you can get rich at the Casino? Don't count on it! I was going at least once a week for several years before I ran out of funds. How the casinos lure you back time and time again. If you went for the first time and won a little,
congratulations. Don't go back. Quit while your ahead.
I decided to write this journal as I am going through something very frightening at the moment and it awaits me once i am back from my getaway from everyone and everything trip and I feel very alone in it , so i need to focus on something magic that will redirect my energy into something positive and what is more magic than Paris at Christmas ????!!! And a journal to capture that !
