    I realize the more you invest in yourself the

    more you are able to invest in those around you because you have the tools to do so. The first person you must invest in is yourself. I try to accomplish small goals through out my week and bigger goals in longer periods of time. The best feeling is looking at a goal sheet and...

    ...or at least trying to.

    I always try to tweak an aspect of myself once at a time, so I can make improvements stick for longer.

    Taking Responsibility

    I read a story in this group today that made me really sad. I thought about it for a while and I realize so many people don't realize what is causing their repeated problems is themselves. Long ago I realized I am an adult. I can not let other people dictate how I behave. They...

    It's been almost 2 weeks

    since I've smoked a cigarette. I didn't think I would be able to do it at first, especially without the use of nicotine patches or gum, but it's honestly very easy now. Week 3 here I come!!

    I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles;

    but today it means getting along with people.

    It's been about two years

    I bought my kids a puppy

    for Christmas but when they opened the box there was poop, pee, and a dead puppy in the box. They cried a lot. How long can dogs go without food? I bought it on Black Friday.

    Floating

    I awoke this morning and felt the absence of my usual sense of wonder. I missed it.   In fact, I felt like crying.   Well, I don’t have anything against crying… but … the day was beautiful… did I really want to fill it with my tears?   And where were these tears coming...

    Embrace The Change...

    I don't owe it to you to react positively

    when you mistreat me. I'm allowed to call you out. I'm allowed to be angry. It doesn't make me any less kind or positive.

    On My Road to Victory

    For the past 7 years, my life had been mostly a struggle, more so psychologically, as I had acquired a lot of fears which at the time I could not understand, let alone deal with. I was shy, anxious in just about any social situation, and eventually got depressed. I realise now...

    Improvement can mean different things.

    I think I improve myself in smaller ways, because I become less ignorant over time. With time, comes knowledge. I try to find logic to things to better understand them or to be more calm about them, so I think in some ways I try to improve myself in smaller ways that I wouldn't...

    Earlier I used to despise those people

    who were selfie addicts ... Now when I click mine I feel I did a bad thing. Then I realised that taking selfies made me appreciate my own self which I never did before.

    it's not that people don't want to like you,

    it's just that people don't know what to like about you. so stop whinning and make urself likeable (is that a word?)
