Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Several days ago, I wrote and published on Second Chance to Live Second Chance to Live — My Journey thus Far Part 8 — A New Beginning. In this article I shared some thing that changed and breathed new life into me. I would like to share the article with you in video format. I create video presentations to make the information accessible to individuals who learn more effectively through watching and listening. As you listen and watch the video presentation, may you gain hope and find new life breathed in you.
Below is a brief excerpt of the article:
“As I have shared in my about page, for many years I felt like some one all dressed up with no where to go. Although I diligently applied myself to everything I put my hand to, I kept running into walls. My desire to be of service was not being received, at least in a way that I could make a living and pursue the American dream. After my attempts to stay employed for over 20 + year (unsuccessfully), being deemed to be unemployable by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and after my third application the Social Security Administration realized and affirmed, that I was indeed disabled; in late 1998.
Nevertheless, I had a desire to pursue my destiny. Through my recovery process I began to realize that no one was coming to save me. So I started to investigate different ways that I could use my passion and desire to encourage people to not give up on life. To make a long story shorter, although I still did not know, the extent of why I was unemployable and disabled; I began to realize that some thing needed to change. I began to realize that I needed to find a medium in which I could share what I had learned through my process and journey — in ways that would work for me. I wrote poems and articles, got a computer and wrote a book and then at the encouragement of a friend I created Second Chance to Live on February 6, 2007. To read more about my process leading up to creating my web site, click: HERE.
During the past 7 years I have had the aspirations of seeing Second Chance to Live as a gateway to my pursuing the “American dream”. I realized that no one was calling me forward and that I needed to answer the call that never came: Answering the Call that Never Came. I needed to find my way. I needed to pursue my destiny. During the past 7 years I have not seen my hope realized, in the way I had hoped. During the past 3 – 4 months I have experienced some discouragement and disappointment. I worked through much of my discouragement and disappointment, but continued to be frustrated. Over the past several weeks and through conversations with trusted friends, writing in a journal and being honest with myself I came to a stark conclusion. I had been in the midst of grieving. Grieving a loss.”
