Family can be your greatest friends. They can also become your worst enemies. Divorce forces a detachment from what was and creates a new blank screen that has to be filled. Life won’t allow otherwise.

What if I walked away from everything and started again?

What would happen?

I believe as human beings we are like the seasons in that we need, desire and thrive through change.

If things don't change, nothing changes. And if nothing changes... like the seasons... no new growth can take place.

So I've made a decision, I'm going to walk away from certain things and certain certainty in my life to create my change forced through my own actions.

Because if things don't change... nothing new grows.

I am my own creator.

I created many times in my life.

What If!

Alan Forrest Smith
