Time For Big Girl Panties July 8, 2013

Okay, I’m putting on my big girl panties. It’s time to get back  up, brush myself off, and give this life of mine another shot. I may be down, but I am never down and out for long.

It doesn’t mean I’m not still hurting; I am, believe me. I still hurt in my heart every single day for Riley. I still hurt for J and all of her problems. But I cannot function this way for long. I am, by nature, a very upbeat person. I see the beauty in small, everyday things. As bad as my life seems to get at times (lately it has been very bad) I must find the good and rise above it all.

I still feel depressed. It is not the overwhelming, clinical depression I sometimes feel (Thank God)! When the clinical depression is out of the picture, I can overcome. It is just a matter of my mindset and my attitude.

So today, I choose to live and be happy.

    Choosing to be happy is the first step. I am sorry I have not been there for you for the last few weeks. I have been over doing it and now need to cut down which means not visiting as much as I had wanted to.

    I will try to be though

    just keep finding things to be thankful for xx how’s the new pup?

  4. I envy your resolve but being positive just doesn’t have much affect for me. Maybe I have a weak psyche or something because bad things just wipe the floor with me and it’s hard for me to rebound. I truly envy your strength.
