A Shot Of Brandy

I grew up dirt poor. So poor that I started selling painted rocks on the corner at 5 years old and picking up dog poop to help buy my own food & clothes. Some days all we had to eat was a spoon of peanut butter. I did a thousand odd jobs growing up, including a job as a maid at a motel to pay for braces so I wouldn’t be embarrassed to smile anymore. Those difficult times taught me the value of hard work, budgeting, persistence and humility!

 

When I was 10 years old I remember watching the news and thinking that is the job I want to do! But, how could a kid like me end up in a career like that. I was a product of teen parents who both dropped out of high school. My mom worked 2-3 minimum wage jobs to keep a roof over our heads. Since I didn’t come from money and used my money to pay for everyday expenses, I had to look for alternative ways to realize my dream. So at 17 years old a random call from a military recruiter changed my life! I decided to join the army to get an education and a head start on my dream job. You can imagine that being a young woman in the military was not easy (think Private Benjamin). After surviving boot camp, I served all over the world including the war-torn countries of Kosovo, Serbia and Macedonia covering some of the most horrific and painful stories you can imagine. Including Sept 11th attacks and nearly being killed by terrorist 3 times in the Balkans. I even had the opportunity to interview President George W Bush and was responsible for a team or broadcast and print journalists.

 

I thought the army was cutthroat and tough but then I entered the world of television!!! I spent more blood, sweat, and tears working my way up from a studio tech, editor to multimedia journalists, and finally anchored a morning show. Again, not an easy journey and let’s just say I’ve got a very thick skin! Here’s a fun fact. I landed a reporter anchor gig for a FOX affiliate at just 20yrs old. I was the youngest reporter ever hired at that station. One thing that was prominent throughout my life were all the naysayers saying you’ll never be able to do that. You can’t do this…I want to thank them because them telling me I couldn’t helped me to keep pushing through when I wanted to quit.

 

But perhaps the hardest thing I’ve ever had to overcome was the loss of my last marriage. I thought I had it all figured out in the relationship department when my phone rang and the husband of the woman my husband was having an affair with told me he’d been unfaithful for half of our marriage. My heart hurt in places I didn’t know existed. I was devastated. Hadn’t I done everything God had asked of me? Hadn’t I overcome enough adversity and fulfilled everyone’s expectations of me? Didn’t I deserve some measure of stability and happiness? It was then that I decided I’d had enough,

It was time to live with no regrets.
