So why after virtually erasing your ex... are you still struggling to mend your broken heart?

Healing your heart means changing your outlook on things!
My eight year old son walks around with a box of rocks everywhere he goes and tells everyone that he is a geologist. When people ask if that is what he wants to be when he grows up, he always replies, "I am a geologist. I don't have to grow up to know what I am." This is the simplest example of faith. When you want something so bad and you can say you have become it or have received it, you have acquired faith. Retaining faith is when you can truly believe something in your heart, even when others doubt you or you feel your world has fallen apart. Some people may call it the secret or the power. Whatever you feel comfortable calling it, it simply is pure faith.

I don't want to be here anymore. Be here on this earth that is, be here in this ole' body of mine. Perhaps you can help. I think I'm simply looking for some inspiration. Also, when I think about no longer being "alive"... I am comforted. This feeling of calm comes over me. That's not a good sign, is it? I'm over fifty years old. I would have to admit I am sad and perhaps frustrated, and yes, maybe a little angry. I'm sure there are people out there who do love me, however, they seldom show it.
Ellie shares her personal experience with moving on in her career and what it was like to look back.
I’m not nearly as emotional as I thought I would be. Sitting in the KPRC newsroom, a few feet from the desk I used to call home base as a reporter, I should be feeling more about my past. I’m back where it all started… isn’t that worth something?
Two years ago almost to the day, I left KPRC and my comfort zone. I was certainly scared and not just a little naïve about what it would take to start a business, but I was also excited. It wasn’t just that I was starting something new.
