No one will give you a handbook. There isn’t one! There is no recipe to follow. Only you can find the spice that makes your skillet sizzle. Sometimes — no matter how hard you try or how careful you are — the dish will come out salty.
You can’t change your circumstances – you can only change yourself and your thoughts, opinions and beliefs about your circumstances. The one you love will have to want to change. Take the lead and show them the way.
You will want to give up. Exhaustion, deprivation, depletion and toxicity will take root. Turn inward long enough to refuel your reserves. Then get back out there and claim victory.
The end is only a new beginning. Own your story and live it. Then get out there and tell it. Others need to hear it so perhaps they can find the spice that makes their own skillet sizzle.
