sometimes..

I started this blog awhile ago, and those of you who read it (someone, maybe!) know that I sort of delve into alot of different things. I dont divulge everything but more snippets of my life, some good, some bad, some great, some awful. I am a woman, a mother, a friend, a big sister and lots of other things. So sometimes I have my 'black dog' days. I share them here because overall I am human, and things do give me the shits and make me sad at times. Things also make me question myself, who I am, what I believe in, my morals, how I go about in the world.
The last couple of weeks has had magnificent highs and some terrific lows. Friendships have been tested, relationships too. Expectations not met, and times of torment and indecision.
I know that I can get through these times, even though I can sometimes feel alone in my thoughts. I suppose, I just want to say that even though I love my life, my family and my friends, sometimes it all just gets on top of me. But you know what there is always tomorrow.
So have a great day tomorrow, I know I will. xo

I found this on a blog some time ago, and it is probably good for today.

The Optimist Creed
by Christian Larson

Promise Yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.
To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear andtoo happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

2 little pieces of your mind:
