Wonderful Day To Be Alive!


What a wonderful day to be alive. Do you ever just look around inside your home and just thank God for letting you still be alive? I think of all of the things that I have been through and how many times I could have been dead and buried!

I thank God for his safety and his grace in my life.

I’ve gone through so much, just like the rest of you. He’s brought me through inpatient rehabilitation, cancer surgery and so many other things! Do you realize that God woke you up today for a reason? Those things you went through made you the person you are today. You are stronger and wiser. No, everything may not be perfect, but look at everything you’ve been blessed with: your health, a home, people who love you…priceless! God gave you those things because He loves you!

Walk forward today with your head held high knowing that:

You Are Enough

Talking To a Friend Helps

I got the opportunity to talk to friend of mine the other day and it really helped me figure out some things. As a person who suffers with depression, it is very easy for me to forget how important it is to spend time with friends. Sometimes you don’t even realize that you need someone to talk to until you start talking and it all just runs out!

At 49 years old, I have to stop being afraid of making moves. I can’t continue to worry about what people are going to think about my decisions; even those closest to me. Having been in therapy for over 10 years, I have really come a long way and have made some important changes, but this is where I often get stuck.

You have to do what is best for you. What is it that will make you happy?
