This makes me so sad for your employers, who clearly didn’t know what a valuable asset they had in you. There days, people who work a job because they truly love it are rare and few.

I’m sad, too, for the teens who lost you in the divorce.

But, I am not sad for you. Because you went through something heartbreaking and you used the tools of recovery to do it. Even though it sucked, you grew.

So, a gift from ashes.

There is always a gift, no matter the situation. Learn to find the gifts, and life will never beat you down too far for you to bounce back.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
