when i first saw this (the above picture) i thought, ya right- this is NOT my year. But then, i re-thought it. i contemplated, & then i realized that this IS my year. ya, of course it started out rough... but i will be stronger. i will be happier. i will be wiser. i will be rebuilt. i will make my mark. i will be smarter. i will be one step closer to finding who i am. i will become who i am supposed to be. i will be found. this is the year that i will always remember as a defining time in my life. when i was literally in the depths of despair. and then i realized....
my health depends on my happiness. i can't go on without a smile on my face. i choose happiness. i hate change. if anyone knows me at all- they know that. i crave consistency. i crave it. i get anxiety when life takes a different direction. i like knowing whats gonna happen before it happens. i need to loosen up. i need to let go. i choose happiness- because it is good for my health.
I believe in myself. i know that if i can get through this- i can get through anything. i can go back to school. i can find a career path that fits me. i can do it. i can try and try again. i am not a failure. i will be better. i will find the path i am supposed to be on. i believe i can- and i will.
p.s. papers were filed today. 3.23.11. appx 60 days from now...its all final. that will be one of "those" days. then i will begin life as Mindy Riggs- the end of a hard road, and a new beginning of possibilities.
side note: pinterest.com is great. i searched 'words'. and thats where i get all these fantastic artsy sayings.
