Crying over spilled milk....

It is incredible how much we worry over situations that cannot be changed. I personally am mightily guilty of this kind of behavior. Something happens or fails to happen and I know with all certainty that the situation cannot be changed; yet I continue to worry. I try to analyze and rationalize the situation. You end up spending more time, energy and emotions and yet yeild no results. I wonder if there is a subconscious emotion that causes this.

I am familiar with the saying "whenever you wake up is your morning" so whats the point crying over spilled milk? Why don't we just get up, dust ourselves and keep forging ahead? In the year just gone by, I have tried to train myself to do just that. I would not say with certainty that I have achieved it completely, but I do know that I am no longer in the place where I used to be. GROWTH!

A Year Older

It's my birthday. Yay!!!

Looking, back on the year just gone by, I can say without fear of contradiction that it has been the most eventful in my life so far. I have been through up's and down's, joy and pain, tears and laughter; so much so that I am a bit surprised that it has only been a year and it all makes me realise how so very fortunate I really am. I have learnt so much and grown so much that I know for sure that I am a very different person from the person I was on this day last year.

Through all my trials this past year, I enjoyed the unwavering love of my family. I have come to appreciate that love truly conquers all. I have come to appreciate that life is a gift, and good health an added bonus - one that should never be taken for granted.

With all of this in mind, I look forward with renewed vigour to the journey ahead.

I may not be where I want to be but I am definitely on course.
