    You Have to Know

    That for some reason, it has to get worse before it gets better....and once you fall, you have to get right back on your feet and start all over.

    Of Course It Is!

    Everyone is human and I personally celebrate when people or myself fail, you tried something new, you did something different, you were adventerous and tried. lol- I laugh because as I think about it, the movie "Meet the Robinsons" highlights this "ok-ness"...

    I've always striven to provide others with solace and sympathy, but when it comes to me, they turn a blind eye. Inevitably, leaving me alone to fight my own demons.
