And there I was – half-naked, in the middle of the bathroom. Out of the blue, I heard my inner voice that struck me like thunder:

When will you finally stop carrying this heavy burden of negativity with you? You are always waiting to be happy. And the others are to blame for it not happening. Stop suffering, damn it!”

It’s my children and my husband who seem to be in shock now – they are no longer scolded. They are perceived as who they are, and not as who they should be…

I can enjoy the little things in life. I’m shining and want to share my light with others.

Am I drunk? No. I am finally happy!
