One Day at a Time

I have come to the realization that I am redefining myself.

I can no longer define myself by my job because I lost that in January.

I can no longer define myself by my husband because I have done that in the past and I lost myself in the process.

I cannot tell you who I am yet because I don't know myself. Many people have told me I am strong. I don't feel strong. I have been through a lot and I am still going through some tough times. I refuse to ...
I have come to the realization that I am redefining myself.

I can no longer define myself by my husband because I have done that in the past and I lost myself in the process.

I cannot tell you who I am yet because I don't know myself. Many people have told me I am strong. I don't feel strong. I have been through a lot and I am still going through some tough times. I refuse to give up. Times may be tough and life may be stressful but I will not give up!

I've been through a lot of changes in recent years...from losing all of my immediate family to losing my job and most recently dealing with a damaged marriage. I've made a decision to deal with life in a positive manner and avoid minimizing my emotions with food or alcohol.

Some days are easier than other days but the only way to approach life is ONE DAY AT A TIME! Today I am determined to participate in activities that improve my mind, body, and spirit.

It’s been more than a year since you read my blog entry, “Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Not Just Size 5”…I hope that the last year has brought you happiness and success in life. But above all, I hope that you have remembered how beautiful you are!

Hi Pat! I haven't been on Spark too much the past two months because I've been visiting family in NY. I just got back a couple of days ago and wanted to check in on you.

I see your moving! I pray all will go well with the move and this change will bring about many positive changes.

I came home from vacation with a new life motto, "Why worry, just worship." I sure need that motto--sometimes things don't change, but God does a great work inside us! Keep your eyes on the prize...and keep us posted on you new adventure in life.

I have problems uploading photos every now and then...give it a few hours and try again or try again tomorrow and it should be fine...at least that is how it is for me when I have issues.
