Failure is Not Fatal! It’s the Courage to Continue that Counts!


I can’t believe that it’s nearly a month since my mom had her stroke, I can’t believe that I have survived everything that has happened over the month and my heart and spirit is still intact.

I need to concentrate on taking baby steps to get back on track.  This weekend of refusing to worry about anything, every time a problem tried to enter my thoughts, I just blocked it by stopping everything and just concentrated on breathing in and out!

I woke up today and realized that a sense of calm has settled over me, I can breathe today and it doesn’t hurt so much. I have been alone my whole life, I have gotten soft living here, allowing my mom to take charge since this was her house and it made her feel needed after my brother died.  But now this is my house, I will never find a place cheeper in California, so if I cut back on everything from electric to water and food, I should be able to start saving up to move to Oregon. Hopefully if I work really hard I will be off insulin next year and maybe my eyesight will return enough to drive again. I have climbed higher mountains than this before and came out alright,

Always Smile, Never let them see your fear!
Don’t give anyone power over you, only you can take charge of your life.

    1. My sweet friend, never take those around you for granted, embrace the love for many of us don’t have it at all. Knowing that you think of me helps more than you can imagine. If I have to go through life alone, it’s going to be on my terms. β™‘β™₯β™‘
