    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...

    How Do You Eat An Elephant?

    Answer: One bite at a time, lol :) While it may seem that everything that's causing you so much pain and sorrow is like a big, giant elephant, why not try tackling it one itsty, bitsy bite at a time? Start, start anywhere it doesn't matter. The idea is to just start. The joy...
