Poor little noodle, LOL


365 Days of Gratitude Inspiration


Today, Friday, August 31, 2018, I am grateful for finding easy to understand articles so I can promote my blog and make it easier for search engines to find!

I had no idea it was so complicated!
 If I had tried to do this years ago, I would have thrown in the towel, but no longer.

Now that my self-esteem is better, I can tackle this.

365 Days of Gratitude Inspiration



Today, Tuesday, August 28, 2018, I am grateful for feeling strong enough emotionally and mentally to begin laying the foundation for getting myself OFF of welfare. I choose to earn my living being self-employed using my skills and talents focusing on HOW to build a productive life in recovery.

Cheeto face, LOL


365 Days of Gratitude Inspiration


Today, Monday, August 20, 2018, I am grateful to see firsthand how
 I am handling some very stressful situations in my life.

I am not crying, wringing my hands, or unable to sleep because I am saturated with worry.

After years of stuffing unpleasant thoughts that kept nagging me, I came to understand that my emotions and feelings were doing their jobs: they were connected to unresolved emotions that I had to accept as part of my life. I had to face and accept what I could not change. My emotions were doing exactly what they were supposed to do, get my attention to let me know something was out of kilter. There was something important I needed to pay close attention to so I could heal and grow.

I know what steps to take to get myself back in balance.
I have mastered facing my problems to heal my wounded soul.

When I get bad news now, my mind goes straight into accepting it as my reality
so I can get to the stage where I come up with options. I cry, kick or scream when it hits me. I grieve over it but I go into acceptance to resolve rather than being crushed under its weight as I did for so many years simply because no one taught that habit to me. I no longer hide or stuff the feelings down deep inside. I face them fully so they do their job and then, I get to do mine.

Today and every day,  I am gathering my resources and applying them to my life

so I keep moving forward.

Nope, ALL saved!


365 Days of Gratitude Inspiration


Today, Tuesday, August 14, 2018, I am grateful for my fundraiser is finally online.
One of the problems abuse survivors have to try to deal with is the terror of being hurt by the people who abused us finding out that anyone has been told about the abuse.
It has taken me over three years to face that fear and get it behind me so I can break my silence in the hope that others will benefit.

I am so grateful to finally be here.
