After being off line for over a year, I must say I MISSED YOU.
This site had been a fun, loving place for us to chat, discuss, laugh, and send each other positive thoughts during times of need while getting to know each other better.
Due to some personal issues I was dealing with, I made a difficult and painful decision to take kathycash.com offline over a year ago. I worked hard with my son Dustin to create this site, made it as user friendly as possible, and in a very short time had well over a quarter million visitors!
I would explain and share what happened and why I shut it down, but I can't. I'm just not sure myself. I either had a breakthrough or a breakdown. Maybe both.
Traumatic experiences for years in a row eventually force human beings to take action.
Many people find strength through adversity, some "check out" and others look for any way to change their lives completely - hoping for a quick fix. I did the latter, believing that if I changed my world and surroundings, life would settle down and all would be well. I was mistaken.
Guess what? Wherever you go...THERE YOU ARE. It was ME that needed to change. I had to change HOW I reacted, how I was affected and how I managed my life.
Hundreds of times I heard dad sing, "You got to walk that lonesome valley. You got to walk it by yourself. Ain't nobody else can walk it for you. You gotta walk it by yourself." I always connected that song and those lyrics to a "funeral or Gospel song", but it's just as true for the living. "Ain't NOBODY else CAN walk it for you." YOU DO HAVE TO WALK IT BY YOURSELF.
This is a singular journey. The choices and decisions we make determine the paths we take.
We're given incredible intuition and sense, however if we ignore those gifts, one wrong fork in the road can lead us to a terrifying shack in the middle of the woods. At midnight. With a dead battery and no cell service.
I eventually learned how to charge my own battery and I learned how to yell for "HELP". Trying to manage things alone doesn't make sense. We are all here together
for a reason.
Life is an endless lesson and I hurt people that I love. I regret that. I have forgiven myself as I hope they have forgiven me.
I learned that we aren't trying to FIND ourselves. We KNOW who we are. Sometimes we have to dig deep to discover it. We create ourselves as the years pass by.
All experiences lead us to a new path, knowing it's up to us which direction to choose.
I learned a legion of details about myself that will hopefully assist me in the remaining years I have on this planet. I'm grateful for that and I'm grateful for the people that love me. I'm grateful for YOU.
Thank you for visiting if this is your first time. Please come back again.
For those of you that have been with me for years and have remained my friend, I can't tell you how much you mean to me.We DO all need each other. That's what this life is all about.
I wish you a peaceful, happy holiday season, and much love to each and every one of you. ~K
