I must admit that I have had a couple of tough days... the kind that not only drain you physically, but emotionally as well.
If you were to have told me a year ago, that not only would I be blogging on a daily basis, and that it would have such a positive impact on me, my family and life... I would have looked at you and thought you were absolutely nuts!
Let me tell you!... I have not only learned so much about myself in the last eight months+, but I have also worked through "issues", grown some, accepted the past, learned to like myself, found some esteem, and so much more. I have grown to love who I am, faults and all... as well as learned to forgive myself and others.
I want to take the time out to share my "high and lows" from this experience thus far... just so you know, I like saving the best for last...
my lows... well, I would have to say that my lows have been, recognizing, facing, as well as accepting mistakes I have made in my life. As painful as facing some truths about myself have been (which is the "low")... The experience also turns out being a positive as well.~ a bonus.
my highs... no question about it!... it has been all the wonderful people I have met along the way, as well as their support and prayers. Through my blogging, I have had the privileged of crossing paths with wonderful people from all over the world... and I have gained some insight from the experience too.
All I can say is that this experience has been a sincere blessing in my life... I am so grateful.
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. ~ Albert Schweitzer
Blessings to all!!
