' It is useless to put on your breaks when you are upside down." Paul Newman
Yesterday was a normal day until I arrived home to find out my nieces home had burned to the ground. Thank God Tiffany and her baby where with her boyfriend and her roommate was staying with a friend that night . They tragically lost both their cats but her roommate's Jess's dog made it thanks to a courageous fire fighter who gave it oxygen and revived it. A few fire fighter's had to go to the hospital for heat exhaustion. I am so glad and thankful no one perished .
Tiffany and Jess lost all their belongings . Tiffany was on facebook saying she was living a nightmare . She really missed her cat. I don't think it hit her yet that she has no where to live , no clothes and everything she has is now gone. All the baby pictures and all her two year old daughter owned also. They could not save one thing.
Her world was upside sown , a total wreck and she was still trying to put on the breaks. She needed to stop and think and plan . But all she wanted is for it to end but it is not going to. I really hurt for her and will do all I can as I was in a similar situation when I was a young girl the same thing happened to me .
When your world turns upside down when you are in a major wreck ,you can't stop it. You may want to put on the brakes but it will do you no good. Some people turn to alcohol or drugs but that does no good. Some people hide from it. No you have to meet the pain head on. You have to confront it , make a plan to deal and move on. You have to put one foot in front of the other , and move forward.
You can and will learn from tragedy. You will get stronger . Slowly things get better while you find your way. You learn what is truly important in life not possessions , but people.
Tiffany ,Jess and little Taelyn will be okay . They are all alive and well . My family will help then find their way . Hugs, happiness and healthy living
