    I Do Try.......

    I have bouts of being positive ...it does help. Trouble occurs when after your best efforts, life goes all wrong again, negativity sets in and its hard to remember to think positively, let alone do it. I may as well try again though, even if I can't have what I want or reach any...

    One Step At A Time

    I used to not be positive at all. I have been praying and working on changes within me. That is where it starts. I don't want my inside to be ugly because then it will relflect my outside. But for sometime I have been postive. But I have been balanced. My husband says that I am...

    Take A Sad Song and Make It Better

    Well, I'm not going to lie... A lot of the choices I have made in my life have not exactly been the best; they've cost me things like my dignity, my pride, my sense of self worth & unfortunately, have altered the very way I see myself when I look into the mirror every morning...

    Is It Worth It?

    I have always tried to think the best of everyone and everything. However, when I do think positive, it seems nothing ever turns out, so tell me, why even bother? I feel like I might as well be smashing my head against a wall, in expecting anything to turn out a good way. If...
