I want to be grateful for everything that happens to me, as I know that I can learn great lessons from any of it, good or bad. It’s not so easy all the time, even though I know what I “should” do and feel. Here’s the truth – it’s hard. Life is hard; dealing with changes is hard; dealing with expectations is hard. I have learned that I can’t count on some people I assumed I could count on. That’s okay, other people have surprised me and stepped up to support me. Sometimes there is a lag time between the two and I am learning to bridge that gap. I have my ups and downs, as I am sure most people do. That doesn’t mean I am going to quit, instead I persevere. I will get to where I want to be.
