4 Simple Words

I have overcome a lot, a ton in fact in the last few years.
It has taken a lot of work, sweat, tears, fears and strength.
I am not done.
I have been recently hit with a few things.
I like analogies. So I will come up with one for my current situation.
I am walking along, minding my own business and someone keeps punching me in the arm. Throwing me off balance and making me feel unsure on my feet. I do not like it.
I have some medical bullshit things.
I have some kid medical things.
I have huge money issues.
I have the IRS in my life.
So recently I have let this get to me. I have been feeling worn out and a little beaten. I have also been alone a lot which allows me to do that wonderful self-talk I am so good at.
Luckily yesterday I was able to spend some time chatting with some good friends and while I was bitching about all the things on my shoulders I made a statement that I did not know was going to be so important feeling.
I said it a few times and I have said it many more times in my head. I will keep saying it.
I have to deal with some discomfort to get there but I will.

Sending you good vibe. You always have an ear across cyberspace if you need it. Keep pushing, bobbing and weaving. You can do this. Oh that is the best life lesson you could ever teach the kiddos.
