"When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves."

Viktor E. Frankl


It was a very hard thing to do - but it was also the best thing that ever happened to me. That day when I KNEW, I KNEW that this was it, I hit the wall and had to take charge and completely change my life - nearly everything about it needed to change. I had to make it happen - no matter what. More kudos and gratitude for SP and all of you wonderful Sparkies who helped me to get it done. Everything in my life was only going to get worse and only I had the power to change it and move it in a new direction. With God's help, of course, but no one could do it for me. I think when we reach that point, once we dig deep enough, we know we can do it.


It's too late again, so that's about it for today. Had a great day though & hope you did too. A big thanks for stopping by today if you had time. 'Til tomorrow........ emoticon

    having the patience to wait for those changes to take effect is what often challenges me

    **SIGH** Don't know why sometimes it takes that downward spiral with things getting out of control to finally realize that the whole scenario has to change -- and it has to start with US as sometimes situations won't change. I am grateful that I had my "epiphany" and SP was here for me too!

HUGS and smiles. Stay cool!!
