Where there is no struggle, there is no strength. -Oprah

Lessons often come dressed up as detours and roadblocks -Oprah

This week was Hard!! After having several conversations with my mom, and close friends, I came to understand that you can only worry about what you can change. What you can not change, you have to let go of.  I personally  have to let go of my want to control everything around me. I am only one person, I am not perfect, I am human and so are those that are in my life. I have a tendency to make others feel like shit, when they hurt me. For me it’s the sting of the scorpio, I never think about what they must feel like for having hurt someone they love, or how they feel now that I have went off or excluded them from my life. I just react. I’m 27 almost 28, I have got to grow up. Also I love every person in my life not because they are perfect, but because of who they are including their imperfections. I am on a quest to be the best me I can, and stay true to that. I want to grow in some way everyday. This week allowed me to see first hand that bad shit happens to people that don’t always deserve it. My mom always says, “it is not what happens to you, it is how you chose to react to what happens to you”. This week I realized my life is GOOD! I can take care of my son, eat, pay all my bills, and even treat myself sometimes. I am happy, not because of any one thing, but all my blessings together are amazing. My God is GOOD!!

  1. Amazing, amazing post! Every day I strive to be better too, it never ends. Some days we take steps forward, somedays ummmm not so much. But in the end remember that we are here for a purpose and in every encounter ask the question, “What Lesson am I meant to learn” Loving you and that handsome grandson of mine!

  2. I am so pleased to know that you aren’t been taken under by the ocean wave of obstacles. It is so easy for us to drown in our everyday set backs. Growth is the only way to rise above your situation, and we do this by loving ourselves and passing on compassion to those who have wronged us. The hardest thing to do is to except that other people make mistakes and want forgiveness just as we seek it from those who we have wronged. I’m not all there yet in my growth journey but I see we are both on the path walking in the same direction. I AM SO PROUD OF YOUR BREAK THROUGH! Xoxo

  3. Totally made my day… picked me up! came across this which is so appropriate.

    The Four Agreements

    1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using words to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your words in the direction of truth and love.

    2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
    Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

    3. Don’t Make Assumptions
    Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

    4. Always Do Your Best
    Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

    Will definitely keep shining!
