To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face; to greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains; to approach my work with a clean mind; to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the Ultimate Purpose toward which I am working; to meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart; to be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done—this is how I desire to waste wisely my days.
-Thomas Dekker

I really am in an odd place. I know what I need to do, I know I NEED to do it for a healthier and happier me, but I'm stuck. Sometimes I feel as if I have been fighting this for so long and I'm just not making any progress. I know it is my choice and it is my life I am playing with here. I hate how up and down I feel and how many times I am catching myself saying "I don't care anymore." Because I DO care! Deep down inside where I hide from myself, I care so very much. I need to find a way back to supporting myself. Feeling kind of lost right now.

I realize the quote I found today has nothing to do with my ramblings, but it struck a chord with me.

    Just take it one day at a time - focus on today, don't worry about tomorrow. Even just focus on each hour - you can do this!!!

    Like ELP1210, I know the place too. Sometimes it all just seems like too much work and effort, and like you say, we're not making any progress.

    If it helps, you're an inspiration to me... your positive way at looking at the world helps me to be more positive too :) If there's anything I can do to help you through this, please let me know!

    I know exactly the place that you described bc I think I''ve been there. Take a small step in the right direction and remember that it is OK to feel and admit it' s time for change. You can do this!
