The Bottom hurts ...

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Why waste your time & mine, the truth is.. I did it and hit my bottom and realized there is no place to go but up. One step at a time, one day at a time. The only place I really needed to be to get back on track is on SP. The place of understanding people & helping hands. Why??? because we are all kindred souls who at one time or another have hit that brick wall and fell down hard. We know that we need to pull up our big girl &big boy pants and take a deep breath and say...We Are Worth It. Some of us find it hard and some of us are so scared we cringe. Sometimes we don't know how to put our selves and needs first. You know what..It is OK. One day at a time, one step at a time. One kind word Or goodie or unseen smile makes this long road a little bit smoother and a lot less scary.
So here I am, Big Girl Pants pulled up, shoes on and taking my baby steps to making me as happy healthy & success story.
My hand is out for help and to give a helping hand.
only way is to keep looking up..
Without faith, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.

    You are right it is one day at a time. Some days for me it is one moment at a time. The answer is always Jesus. He never give up on us = we shouldn't either.
