Becoming grounded through all the tough times

Monday, February 02, 2009

I unfortunately have been less active in the past few months due to family matters an many money issues! Through all the times of struggling and trying to stay balanced. I am very blessed to know their is a wonderful group of people here to offer support and kind words of wisdom. I thank all of my friends and groups for al of their understanding and patience.
I would love to let you know my lessons learned from all of this were as follows:
First - Family and friends are your greatest gift for strength and comfort
Second - The basic needs we take for granted on a day to day basis should never be over looked
Third - Always look within in yourself whenever you feel like you have nothing left to give. You will surprise yourself of your inner strength and your true character within
Fourth - Never under estimate the kindness of others or be afraid to ask for help
Finally - The greatest blessing in your life is your life and it is worth the fight, no matter how tough it can get at times you matter not only to yourself but everyone you know!

There are many things in this life I used to take for granted and needless to say, my values and true needs in life are so simple and real now. I will never lose focus of that ever again. The true measure of a person is not their outer beauty, it is the inner beauty within their heart. No matter how superficial this world becomes my two girls will always know a true measure of a person is the individual inside and not how they appear!

Money can destroy person no matter how much or how little there might be but it is up to you to decide if it is truly worth the expense!

In this rough economy I wish all my friends and family the best and may God watch over and protect you!

Looking through the eyes of a child is the best way to handle such a situation, its not all about your wants but your needs that matter! Shed the excess and reinvent the wheel! Remember what you do not need or want might make all the diference to someone else! Giving a part of yourself, will give back in so many ways!
