Encouragement And Thoughts For 02-1-13

"If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another. Those others are waiting for you now. They are looking to you for guidance, for help, for courage, for strength, for understanding, and for assurance at this hour. Most of all, they are looking to you for love. My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness."
---The Dalai Lama

This sums up my feelings about my situation and the ones on here who truly understand my many conflicts...I believe that if I want love...I have to give it...If I want understanding...I have to give it...If I want respect...I have to give it...If I want encouragement...I have to give it...so that is what I strive to give to all of you...a true piece of me...a truth of who I am and what I am feeling ....true encouragement-coming from a place of OUR shared experiences....

I pray that you find comfort in the words that I try to put out there as encouragement for not just you...but for myself as well...wherever you are today...just know that someone is looking up to you ...someone thinks you are great...someone thinks you are strong and that you keep on getting stronger everyday...someone thinks you are brave and courageous...someone sees their very reflection in you...
that someone is ME.....thank you for all that you have given to me..the examples that you have set...the openness and willingness to share your very personal stories.....your lives....your disappointments and your achievements...they all mean soo much to me and inspire me..but more importantly...they make you who you are...

This is just what was on my mind today....so I hope and pray that I have given you at least an ounce of what I feel you have given to me....the ENCOURAGEMENT to keep moving forward...to push on without ceasing....Til the next time...stay POSITIVE and ENCOURAGED....XOXO
