Anything Is Possible


As I reflect back to just a year ago in my own life today on where I was, what I was doing, and just who I was, the difference is like night and day. My thinking is different, my personal goals are different, my relationships with myself and people are different.

Some of the changes that have taken place have taken a more gradual slow approach, while others were like a leap. I have lost some things and yet I have gained so much. The point is, I didn’t stay stuck or stagnant.

So many times in my life, I found myself being sucked up into a state of depression, that I was blinded by what could be possible. I even went so far in 2013 that I attempted to take my own life. My own reasoning was that I thought nothing was going to get better and my children were all going to grow up and move away and I was going to be left alone.

I honestly could not see the other side of the coin! That is the way depression hinders your thoughts and any type of vision of the future. You are literally blinded. It is the saddest state of being.

My hopes today is that no matter who you are, where you are, and what you are doing, your able to take some kind of hold to these words-never give up! Never give up on the fact that anything is possible!

Words cannot describe just how grateful I am for that day that I was saved! I had no blood pressure, honestly, it was a miracle, I am here today! I have a new outlook on life, I am a stronger person than I was back then, and though I still get depressed, I hang on until my thoughts change for the better.

If I can do it, so can you! I was one of the lucky ones, and you can be one too!

Thank you for reading,

Glad to be here!

It’s A Tuff World


Some days I feel like I’m the windshield other days the bug! Which is it today, I don’t know. It’s been a tuff couple days that’s for sure though. I have no idea where all this disharmony is coming from.

Sure having children, relatives, family members, friends can be a positive thing, but today nobody wants to get along. The whole world doesn’t seem to want to get along. That rainbow in the sky is dissipating. Sigh…

Sadly to say, I’m hiding out in a crowded parking lot, by myself. Too much noise elsewhere. The feeling of peace in my soul is gone.

We cannot control other people’s attitudes, resentments, or even what they think about you. We can only control ourselves and even that sometimes is difficult. But today I will not join in with all the negativity. Sure my feelings are hurt with angry words, but I will survive. I will not retaliate. I will just sit in my own company.

Love yourself people. Love yourself enough to stand strong. Stay true to yourself. Forgive others even when it’s the most difficult. Do not carry their burdens. Give time to time to heal.

Have faith that better days will come. And love yourself the most during these days….

Do Our Words Matter?


Do our words matter? I often wonder about this. Currently I have several of my grown children fighting amongst themselves over what? I suppose its over, who doesn’t call who, who doesn’t go see who, who doesn’t appreciate what one has done for the other. It’s so exhausting.

I feel like a referee! Well, honestly, I’ve had enough! It doesn’t matter what I say, my words do not seem to matter! They honestly, want to box it out! The funny thing about all this, is they seem to want to pair up, yes there is four of them. All I can think of is, go ahead. I’m to exhausted trying to referee this stupid little arena, that my children have placed themselves in.

What a shame too! All I can think about is the gift that they have in having each other. They could be the best of friends, hang out, and spend the holidays, birthdays, with each other, but do they? Not currently.

So what’s a parent to do? Sigh….

What does it take for words to matter? Is it timing, let them grow up? Space, the distance you put between events? Is it an event, something good or bad? Honestly, do you know?

Based on my own experiences with life’s little difficulties, I’ve had people tell me things, only to have it actually click later. What was it? I seem to think it was a combination of things. Perhaps, it was the combination of all the above. But as I am sitting here typing all of this, a question comes to mind. What if those words were never spoken? Then, yes, they wouldn’t matter. But because words were spoken they were left out there to float around until the opportunity arrived to matter.

So in conclusion to, do our words matter, I would say yes. I would say, if your going to say something, say something that will encourage, give some hope, and pay a lot of attention to exactly what you say, how you say it, and avoid saying something harmful, because people have a tendency to remember the crappy things you say to them over all the positives.

As far as my children go, well, as tuff as it is, I will keep encouraging them to get along. Maybe, someday it will click inside their young minds. I hope the sooner for the better. I will do my best to be a positive role model for them. I will also, be very careful with my words and how I say them, and I hope someday, my words will matter…
