Ok, so i had the radio on the other day ( always have one on! lol ) and the only thing i heard was : “What you think about you become ” HOW TRUE IS THAT STATEMENT? lol

My gosh! as i struggle with in myself to find out what is going on with me, i hear that statement and it was like walking into a brick wall! and as i am processing it i say out loud... YES! Lord, i hear you!

im not even sure how to write all this or even what to say, so it will prolly be a jumbled mess, and that is ok, because that is my life at the moment! lol  

That comment came at the precise moment it needed too! i am so focused on things like, the heater not working in the car ( i live in Michigan ), not being able to get some of the things the children need, having to was close with dishsoap in my tub because i do not have a washer and dryer, poor me, poor me you may be thinking..

No, this really isnt a pitty party.. it just is! lol my daughter and i were looking through a box of mine that had lots of pictures in it, and WOW! what a difference even 5 years can make! in these pictures i had a healthy glow, smiles, and a joy that radiated! OK! lol who peed in my cornflakes, and stole my joy? LOL

So now, i need to work at getting it back! a new and improved me so to speak! UGH!! its hard work, and i dont want to have to do it, but its gotta be done!

So as you go through your day, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers, as i embark on this life changing journey!

much love and many blessings
Linniheart

    • Linni – you are very much loved because you're refreshingly honest and always the first to come to someone's aide with real words of wisdom.
      I know life has been very tough this last twelve months with your family and job etc; and yes you might feel your focusing on the negative but in reality you come across as very much focusing on the goodness in life.
      I know in my heart life will lighten up for you and yours – but mean while just vent on here – we are listening xxx

    • Linni, thank you for sharing that quote and your thoughts.  

       I read this yesterday and thought, “boy,for a gal who claims she’s been negative, she’s got a pretty positive attitude“.  But I do understand where you‘re coming from.  I will keep you in my prayers and send all the positive thoughts I can muster your way.

      This winter has put in a rather negative frame of mind and that quote hit me hard yesterday.  I even wrote it on the frig as a reminder to myself to stay positive.

    • Funny!  Just read your subject line & this morning wrote on my blog an affirmation from my ‘Positive Thinking Every Day’ book.

      No, it’s not a pity party!  Life just happens & it’s up to us how we deal.  Easier said than done, I know first hand.

      Getting it out helps relieve some of the small stuff as ‘we’ create a mountain.

      It is SO important to know heartYOU ARE NOT ALONEheart!  You are not.

      Love your honesty!

      One thing @ a time.  One moment @ a time.  Infant steps for me on any given day.
