First, I must say thank you to everyone that has supported Walking Into A New Life. Whether you’ve been here from the beginning or just learned of WIANL, I consider it an honor that you would take the time to learn more about the goals, mission and passion that has established the foundation for this work.

I was given the opportunity to speak at several events within the community which included teen conferences & women’s groups as well as participating in a health fair. Men’s polo shirts, journals, socks and our signature WIANL logo tshirts will now be showcased in our store, and updates were made to convert to the new Facebook group page. I took part in a day long domestic violence advocacy workshop specific to court room policy, procedures and assistance to victims. While it is good to share your story, I also feel it’s important that you receive some professional training. I consider all of the various events over the last month to be an invaluable learning experience, and I look forward to putting it all to use over the next several months.

Lastly, I celebrated my 40th birthday. This is a huge milestone for me. I have been doing a lot of self reflection, and I can see my growth and positive progress. I am walking into a life full of wonderful possibilities. There will be a post on that tomorrow!

Moving full speed ahead and starting to finalizing things for the coming weeks and months ahead.
