Restoring my Soul...

Today is the day.

It's the start of [what I believe will be an amazing, and much needed journey to] restoring my soul.

First things first, burning the fears we might have.

I have a lot of fears.

A whole lot.

But I have written many of them down, and have burned them in our fireplace.

A fresh start.

I have faith and trust that this process will work.

I have seen the changes that have happened in the lives of friends and women who I look up to and admire, after they've attended Brave Girls Camp.

I am taking Soul Restoration just for me.

But I believe that by restoring me, I will be a better mother, wife, and daughter.

Maybe even a better friend too.

And I am hoping to restore myself back to the happy me I once was.

Believe it or not... I used to be a VERY happy person almost all of the time. So happy in fact that my co-workers called me "The Happy Girl" and they loved me for it.

Somewhere along the line, I lost that part of me.

I need it back.

P.S. Not that I know this from personal (recent) experience or anything... but I would not suggest putting a piece of paper into the fireplace, and then realize that the flue is not open. Because then, (not that I know this) you might think that the gas knob is the flue knob... and you might turn it... which actually might turn on the gas.... and then you might have a HUGE ball of fire in the fireplace with NO where to escape to. And... then you would be VERY grateful that it was just one piece of paper that was initially put into the fireplace. (Not that I know any of this from personal experience or anything... and since I don't know this from personal experience... I didn't take a photo once the glass doors were shut.)
