Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.
You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.
Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.
"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill
Hey Nik - thanks for reading my blog. You're right. I do get lonely. I don't know what I would do without Spark. I am in no immediate danger - just getting real tired of the mental abuse. I have been doing this since 2010 when I found out about him. He will NOT support me if I leave so he is doing everything within his power to see that I leave him and not the other way around. If I go, I do not get a penny of anything he has and there are no service agencies that will help when he has money. There are too many things that I should have checked out BEFORE I married him. It was really dumb on my part. For an intelligent woman, I sure was stupid. Erin 1473 days ago
