Reflecting on 2018

    As 2018 comes to a close I find myself reflecting over the past year. Much has changed in my personal life as well as with my organization, EmpowerSurvivors.
    For me, 2018 represented a season of change, a lot of ups and downs, self reflection, and growth. A lot of tears, laughter, loss, but also new beginnings.
    I started out 2018 with nothing but yet something, if that makes sense.
    I Ended a 25 year relationship with someone I loved and chose to leave with basically nothing and no paying job. No beds, no furniture, no money.
    I lost my dad to cancer which I never knew could hurt as much as it did and still does.
    I spent nights wondering how I was going to meet financial needs, wondering if I could sustain the organization I built, and wondering how the hell I was going to make it and support my three children through all of this.
    There were nights I cried myself to sleep, contemplated life, felt overwhelmed, and wondered if I would make it.
    Luckily for me there were also blessings.
    The blessings of three great kids.
    Great friends and family who listened, gave sound advice, corrected me when I needed it, and were there for me.
    Great supporters of EmpowerSurvivors that helped to sustain the work of EmpowerSurvivors and aid survivors of childhood sexual abuse on their healing journeys.
    There was pain that turned to growth and new understanding.
    Rise in self worth, determination, and perseverance.
    As the end of the year draws to a close I want to say thank you to all of you that helped me through out 2018.
    Thank you for believing in me.
    Thank you for supporting my work.
    Thank you for donating to EmpowerSurvivors.
    Thank you for being visionaries in this journey.
    Thank you also to all the brave men and women who shared their stories of childhood sexual abuse and trauma with me, who continued to stay on the healing path, endure, grow, and continue this journey of healing .
    I look forward to a new year with all of you and hope that 2019 brings you everything you deserve and need. May you all have a very Happy New Year and many, many, blessings in 2019!!!
    Much love,
    Elizabeth Sullivan
    Founder/CEO of EmpowerSurvivors
