Hello fellow bloggers and friends, thank you for stopping in. Today I just wanted to share my thoughts on the ways that so many of my friends have come so far and through so much. And most if not 99% of the friends that I associate with are always on the upbeat and positive side of things. Not saying that they are all perfect and happy and positive every day and every minute, but, they are like me and I imagine that is why we all get along so great :)
I take life one day at a time for things, but, I believe that when storms comes and yes they come and yes I've been there and done that and yes I'm sure there will be more storms in my path down this road we call life but, I believe that things not only happen for a reason but, I see the good and the big picture of things as well.
There's no point really in looking at the negative side of things, that isn't going to get you anywhere but more down in the dumps and depressed and its not good for you or anyone around you. I know times can be tough, believe me I've been there and done that but, this is the only life that we have ... only ONE life to live so why not just smile and don't let the little things stress you out or bring you down. Be thankful and grateful for everything you have and everyone in your life.
When things get rocky its hard to think in the moment that things will be okay, I get that but, after a few minutes of sulking or just hollering and getting it out, take a step back and just take a deep breath and just remember this too shall pass. Each of us are stronger than what we give ourselves credit for. I know that for a fact!
If you would of told me 6 years ago that I would be on my own and working full time from home and making a good living doing what I love, I would of said no way! Not on my own. But here I am...on my own and doing what I love and making a living doing it. I started out with a few things and now have a ton to show for it and it feels so good to have things and work for them and be able to get them and yes while they are just "things" I also feel good that I can buy myself something if I get in a "gaming" mood or if I get in the mood to spend a little on myself like buying a new outfit or whatever it is, I am happy and proud of myself for being the strong woman that I am today.
I also know that I couldn't of done it and wouldn't be here where I am without the support of 2 of my sons as well as the support system of friends that I have. I thank God for them each and every day. I am very thankful, grateful and blessed that I have what I do, I have the people in my life that I do and I am able to do what I love and continue doing it for however long I choose to.
So keep your head up and stand tall!!! You are a strong person and whatever it is that you are going through or maybe that you've been through or that you are gonna go through, you can do it! Just keep moving forward and even though you might get knocked down, stand back up TALL and proud and keep moving forward!!
Much love always
