    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 :)

    Somedays Are Overwhelming.

    Somedays are harder than others.  Somedays it seems there are no answers. Somedays I don't find consulation. Somedays even the animals don't help. Somedays peace is allusive. Somedays life is too complex. Somedays are confusing. SOMEDAYS ARE JUST OVERWHELMING!  ...

    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...

    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...

    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...
