I don’t want you to fail.

I don’t want you to fail because you didn’t have a plan.

I don’t want you to fail because the lists you read made it sound so easy and you forgot that it’s supposed to be hard.

I don’t want you to fail because you know how much money you were going to make without knowing how you were going to make it.

    I don’t want to fail of course, but always in my goals in life I have accomplished, they were never self serving.
    I have a non profit and I don’t know if you saw what the whole meaning behind my website. The meaning is LOVE! The love I have for my gigantic family of artists and crafters who aren’t able to start one and an opportunity for the people who do very unique one of a kind findingings and pieces of art of any kind. There are so many unselfish reasons.
    The two biggest is one for my granddaughter who is only 9 years old and she sleeps in a house filled with Johns running up heroin and doing the train on my adult daughter. She sleeps in a closet with a pillow praying I will come to her rescue I’m sure since I raised her from birth till she was 5 when her selfish disrespectful mother said I would never see her again. I have a judge willing to hear me out at the end of the month.
    The name of my non profit where a percentage of what is made will go to is called Special Angels Protecting Children. Right behind that comes art and the art and photography I do and that others do. I’ve always been a what can I do to help you even at my most horrifying times.
    I feel extremely blessed to be alive after being in such a horrible abusive marriage for over a decade and ended up in a 5 day coma with less than a zero percent chance to live, not to mention the artist community embraced me, some who barely knew me and kept Skype on all night so when they got up to use the bathroom they could look at me asleep and also hear me if I needed them. I always show how much I love others and no one is going to beat the humanitarian out of me. So, I am going to rely on live, hope, and the trust I have been having in Jesús since a little girl.
    I had a physical boutique that was fabulous and it was 3800 sq ft. and I carried nothing but upscale unique items, home decor, my art and design work, others. A lady used to have to keep restocking me with her beautiful handmade cards. I was so happy for her.
    Unfortunately, after 5 years being there and recognized by many and even made the cool stuff section many times in the local paper and I was all over the radio.
    But what mattered to me was seeing someone smile when I gave them something. I’m going in this with a positive attitude for everyone to be helped by this goal and especially my little angel and others like her. I thank you very much for writing me and I’m always open to constructive criticism or ideas , just even if you want to talk. You sound like a lovely person and I truly hope to meet you one day. I’m sending you the very best and loads of love and happy days ahead. Write me anytime!! Lizzie

    Sounds like you’re truly a survivor. I’m a survivor of a different sort. Stroke…. breast cancer. .
    Kudos to you!
