On the Ledge
Really, I’d had all I could take. My life was miserable, out of control, going nowhere. It was time to put an end to it once and for all.
I inched forward…
I’d been here before, but I’d always backed away at the last moment.
Always been too afraid to commit.
I wish I could tell you what made this time any different, but…
This time was different.
This time, I guess I’d had all I could take.
I suppose there’s a point where you’ll actually do anything to try and put a stop to what’s causing you so much pain and misery.
So I took a deep breath…
And I jumped.
I leapt into a new life filled with healthy food choices and sweat-wringing workouts.
I threw myself into a program that demanded more of me than I thought I could give, and when I reached each milestone along the way, it demanded even more…
I plunged myself into the blogging world, and found an unexpected fount of energy and encouragement, of soul-stirring spirit and support.
It all started on a ledge.
One life ended.
