Today was pretty much like any other day, which meant life and it adventures are status quo. In today's economy, that's probably a good thing, because it means I still have my job, my family and my health, for the most part. I started this blog as a kind of therapy for life's woes, but fortunately it's been smooth sailing. Of course, I know it won't always be this way, but at least I know I have a great support system in my family and friends. I haven't always been real open with my strife. Back in the day, I would usually just shutdown and push people away and wallow in my misery. Thankfully, the light bulb finally turned on and I realized I didn't have to go it alone. I have always been a great listener, but never a great talker. I believe the listening finally gave me a clue that everyone else has there problems and most are much more complicated than mine. I realized that I could cope and handle unpleasant situations. So today, most of life's little obstacles, I just plow through without much cause to be down. Deal with the situation head first, because feeling sorry for yourself and side stepping the problem just aggravates it. So why fret, just enjoy the day and make sure it's a good one. Take care all, Peace!!!!!

Well, I am back to share once again. Today, I am reflecting back on my life and trying to find the value within it. Have I lived up to life's expectation. In many instances, no I haven't. I have failed miserably and there was no excuse for my shortcomings. Overall, I believe that I have excelled at dealing with all that life has thrown my way. Why, you say, am I rambling on about such nonsense. The reason is death. This morning I received a call that my sister was battling for her own existence. She decided that life was to tough to deal with under the circumstances she has had to battle through. Just five years ago, she was a strong, hard working and active women. Unfortunately, her health took a turn for the worse. She had a heart attack, then three years later she had a stroke. Mind you, this a 36 year old woman. Her life changed drastically and it was more than she could handle. So, this morning she attempted to take her own life, but was unsuccessful. Her future is still uncertain, but her actions have slapped me in the face. This is why I stop now to reflect on my life. Many times we take for granted what we have in our lives. We cry about insignificant things and forget about the treasures that have been bestowed upon us. We must cherish who and what we have in our lives, because in a heart beat, it could all disappear. Embrace the blessings and move forward in life, in a positive direction. May you all be blessed! Take care, Peace!!

Hey everybody, just thought I would start doing a blog or atleast attempt to start one. In a way I think it's more for mental therapy. I think writing a blog will help resolve some issues in my life. It may sound a bit strange, but I'm a person who does not open up very well. The blog, in way, will be my therapist. A place I can express myself without the fear of hurting or offending the people in my life. To those of you who happen upon my ramblings, feel free to express your opinion and or outlooks on anything in the blog. Hopefully all input will be positive and creative. I guess this will be it for now. Take care and have a great year! Peace!!!!!!!!! ;)
