Giving up?

I’ve written before about perseverance and not giving up – it was probably on my previous blog, since I can’t seem to find the poem I wrote about the topic.  But I am sitting here today, in a little bit of awe at myself.  I sound a little full of myself, but as I look back at some things over the past couple of years, I have made some serious strides in life.  They may not seem like a major big deal to some, but if you knew what I was going through a couple of years ago and how far removed I am from that mentality, you might actually crap a brick – I know I have.

I think I have been through the worst emotional and mental turmoil I have ever put myself through, and although I know a divorce is looming, I don’t feel defeated like I once did.  In fact, I feel like I am coming out on top a little bit.  I have work to do, still, but I am thankful that I have come this far for sure. I am finally beginning to embrace so much about myself, that I am amazed at what a beautiful person I am (okay, okay…I’m bragging a little). 😉  But I am learning to overcome.

I found so many things about myself that I am finally feeling comfortable in my own body. I am finding a long forgotten person trapped inside and she has been dying to come out. I am thankful for this aspect of who I am – I am truly learning to appreciate the human being I am and the person I am becoming. And I couldn’t have done it alone.

I read another blogger’s post today, that discussed finding a friend. And I have a great group of friends here on WP. I have really come to appreciate their advice, encouragement and suggestions.  Some of you I have really been able to strengthen the friendships and I am thankful that you have made me feel better about myself. And I’m thankful for the challenge many of you have given me.  I am finding myself through a lot of you and I am happy beyond measure, because of it.  And, I believe I am finding a good set of girlfriends too!

Anyways, without too much more sappy feel-goods, I am just thankful to be where I am today. ❤

  1. This was so lovely to read, T. I’m so glad you’re feeling so much better about things, even if there still are challenges to face! And taking a look back to see how far you’ve come is a great idea! ❤🌺🌷🌸

    1. Challenges make life interesting, right? I think I know that I have to keep some positivity in my life – obviously, I’m prone to dwelling in negativity, so I think I need to begin surrounding myself with positive, pretty, motivational thoughts…as a deterrent. 🙂

      1. A good plan! Just remember that if you do have a down day, not to beat yourself up for it. You’re allowed. But know that it will pass and the brightness will return! 🌧☁️🌥⛅️🌤☀️
