“Your perspective on life comes from the cage you were held captive in.”-Shannon L. Alder

I’ve slayed one of my biggest dragons this year, all of my friends and family are aware of the monster that was hiding in my closet for many years. Right now I feel like I’m in a gray zone, kind of lost, I became so accustomed to having that part of me in my life that now that it’s gone it leaves me a bit puzzled.

Imagine the elephant who has been chained to a post since it was old enough to stand, that is how I feel, though the chains are now off, part of me still feels as if they are still there. Then there is this other part of me which feels the exhilaration of a person who has finally made it to the top of the mountain after so much sacrifice and struggle, the tears are no longer of pain, but of happiness.

I feel that I am still going through this healing process, so I take it a day at a time, at least right now-the clouds feel as though they are beginning to part.

How have you overcome your monsters?

  1. Thank you for your courageous sharing. I find ‘letting go & letting God’ to be my greatest reward in slaying my own dragons. He is far braver & greater than I…and always Wins!🎉 Hugs & continue to be brave…your chains will one day be a fuzzy memory.
