    Every Action Has An Opposite And Equal Reaction.

    Earlier today a very wise person told me that if you can get yourself that low, you can get yourself to shine. This reminded me of Newton's third law of motion. Every action has an opposite and equal reaction. When you become so low, you can swing yourself back up. You might fall...

    I just want my life to level out.

    ..always one step forward 2 steps back. I blame others for this but if I didn't give in to the negative things in other peoples lives I'd probably be doing a whole lot better! Wish their decisions didn't affect my life. Ugh

    It's Starting to Get Better

    At least now I realise that to make things happen I cannot just sit and dream about it .  I have to make small steps.. just like a baby..    Too big of steps..then I will fall.

    Most Definitely, I Believe ...

    Most definitely, I believe life is going to get a lot tougher but it will be more rewarding, I would love for my children to be able to acknowledge their neighbours like we used do when we were young, instead of being too scared to or worse......not caring enough to bother.
