Adversities, Strength, Understanding and Acceptance...........

More going on in my life right now than I can share. And this quote seems appropriate, because I've been through a LOT and "come through" on the other side. For the most part, I think I'm Stronger, Wiser and hopefully more understanding and more compassionate because of prior adversities.

Deep breaths, prayers and looking deep inside right now. I can DO this! I can handle it. And what I can't, God will.  And Angels, friends and strength come forward in these times, too.

Be kind to yourself, be kind to others- Sometimes those that are hurting the MOST are the meanest and hardest to take. I need to remember that.  Easier to see that hurt and mean in people that aren't close to you.......When those you love are unkind, it attacks your soul, your being.  And I need to remember that those "Strikes" are from pain! Not at me personally!!

If only you could deal with one problem, one hurt, on situation at a time! But life doesn't work that way ....and some times you have to deal with multiple cuts, pains and bruises at the same time!!

This is where I have to evolve and adjust once again.

Hugs, Love and a "Thank You" Bus on the Cheek for letting me vent.
