taking a deep breath…

I don’t know how to start this post because I’m having a hard time wading through the negative to focus on the positive and what I am thankful for.  It is my first instinct to just write endlessly about everything that is weighing on my heart right now, but I’m not going to do that. 

 I am thankful that I’m emotionally healthy enough to realize when it’s time to let things go and move on.  I am thankful that I am able to realize when things are out of my control and I know when to wash my hands of a situation rather than allowing it to take a negative toll on my and my children’s well being. 

 It’s a good feeling to know what you want for your future.  When you come to truly know yourself and realize that you deserve more than you’ve ever allowed yourself to have, you begin to realize when you are settling and when you’ve found yourself in a situation that really has no ‘happy ending’.  It’s not always easy to let go, because you want to make it work and you don’t want to give up…. that is my dilemma.  I have to say that today, I am thankful to realize my limits and I’ve chosen to let go. 

What’s the saying?  If you love something, let it go.  If it is yours, it will return.  If it doesn’t return, it was never really yours in the first place…

What are you thankful for today? 

 Do you ever find yourself trying hard to see the good – even in the darkest of situations?   Have a beautiful day.  🙂

  1. i struggle every day to find anything good. at the lowest point in my life. every time i start to slowly climb up a notch out of the hole, i slip back and fall hard on my bum again.
    i don’t really know who i am and what i want for my future.
    i try to be thankful that i have a roof and eyes. i try to look at little things now…its hard. but u have to find the good in just the littlest insignificant things…focus on a flower and forget evrything else. sounds silly, but its almost the only way to get through it all!
