“We are all vis…


“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.”

Australian Aboriginal Proverb

As I woke up to snow (finally!), I was just admiring the beauty of it. Anyone can admit snow is beautiful. I thought of this proverb. So beautiful too!


“There is no fa…


“There is no failure except in no longer trying.”

Elbert Hubbard

I am feeling very defeated today. My head has been hurting all day, and I have been exhausted. I feel mentally drained. It’s days like this that made me give up so many times in the past. I used to have a lot of days like this. It was overwhelming. I have strength now. I know tomorrow will be different. I will never give up again.

“Anxiety’s like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you very far.”

Jodi Picoult

Ah anxiety. My worst enemy. It takes over me like nothing else in this world. I am working so hard on how to deal with it. I have to admit I usually do not deal with it in a healthy way, but I am trying. I know one day it will be better.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.”

This can be applied to me in a couple ways today. I started back at school full time. I am the old lady in class. I am surround by people in their late teens and early twenties. It gets a little discouraging. But I cannot give up, I will not give up. This applies to my running too. Today was especially difficult. My legs were just hurting. I wanted to stop almost the whole run. I did not though. Since hurting my ankle, I am much slower and cannot run as far. But I refuse to give up.
