    Get A Grip!!

    I want to say I'm learning to take one day at a time, but that's putting it a little loosely. With me I have to take it one step at a time, one moment at a time. My moods are up and down daily, to the point that I have to remind myself when I'm thinking positively that this won't...

    This Is Painful

    Demolition

    So the first thing I need to do before taking on my new life is to tear down the old.  There is so much stuff to go through in this apartment.  I'll have a little help from her parents, but it's not really fair to them.  Even though she took off on me, I still feel...

    From 9th Of March 2010 To Today, I Have Taken One Step At A Time. Whether Going Forwards Or Back.

    The 9th of March was the day my life changed. It was the day I disclosed. And that day was the day I met Susi Barber. And it was her who showed me the way forward. She spoke to me, told me things would get better, that I would learn to survive and she told me to take it one step...

    It's Not Gonna Be So Bad

    How quickly we come to our senses and begin to move on!  A kind word from a stranger seems to go a long ways these days.  The more I think about this whole situation the more it seems right that I'm moving on.  I really would have given the rest of my life being...

    Learning

    Like learning to walk, life is a journey that is 1 step at a time.Time itself only moves 1 way and that is forward.If I am to learn in life and grow then I must do it like I learned and relearned to walk, one step at a time.
