I'm thankful to my mom for showing me what hard work does for you and how it pays off in the end. If it weren't for her showing me, I can't say that I would be where I am. Some people may look at that and think, "You're divorced and you have no education to really speak of. You work at a call center and you live alone in a one bedroom apartment. Woo."
- I look at it though and yes, I'm divorced. I'm divorced because I'm better than that. I deserve to be treated with a lot more respect and honor than I was being given. I deserve to be treated like a Queen and I won't settle for less next time. My mom did the same thing about 25 years ago. We're better for it.
- Yes, I need to go back to school and I will. I want to and I am going to. My mom did and graduated at 50 and I couldn't be more proud. She is awesome and I love her for it. It took a lifetime it seemed to everyone because all she did was study. I hated calling her and ask her what are you doing? Studying...every day, all day. But she did it, and that's what matters. I will too.
- I do live alone and you know what? It's better than having a husband who doesn't appreciate anything you do. It's also better than having roommates who suck.
- I also work at a call center. You want to know a secret? This call center kicks my butt! I've never used my brain more than I do when I'm at work. I have to be "on" for 8 hours a day and never faulter in the things I say. You try it.
