    At Times

       I think this applies to everyone, but it is an issue that has been on my mind lately. I go through life thinking everything is fine and than "wham" it turns upside down. Why does it sneak up on us. Shouldn't we be prepared for the upheaval? I guess it would...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    I Keep Going

    Sometimes I have those moments where I just want to give up. It would be so much easier. The light at the end of the tunnel can seem so far away. On bad days I can lose hope that things will ever get better. What if I just sink lower and get worse? But I know I just have to dust...
