Getting Started

One of the most true statements I've ever heard is: Attitude is Everything.

I can't agree more!! As many of you can probably attest, life isn't easy and it's often throwing us curves that we sometimes wonder if we'll survive. I've often believed that things happen for a reason. I say "often" because I'm human and I "often" forget that! :-)

I have spent a significant portion of the last year of my life trying to figure out why this happened or why that happened...and I'm not talking about stuff that happened ten years ago! I've had a busy, busy year. Occasionally, I find myself starting to regret why I did this or that. Occasionally, I find myself wallowing in self-pity. Somehow, I always find that I've managed to bounce back. Of course, when Bon Jovi released this song, how could I not make it my own?!



I've had some stuff to deal with friends. And still, I won't let it keep me down. I always strive for more. I often strive beyond the norm.

Don't sweat it! You'll find no preaching here! I invite you to join my journey of what has been and see pieces of the world from my view. I won't hesitate to share my view, and I won't hesitate to listen to yours! I just ask for mutual respect on my board. Thanks!

See you soon!
