So far so good.

After 3 months I have recently given these away and now oc...

I love this one because of the whole internal battle crap. This brings me some perspective & helps calm my frantic mind. "This is only a blip on my timeline & it isn't even close to any of the other battles I have overcome. Keep it moving forward & don't look back, you don't live there anymore." This is one of the things I am trying for self talk.
It isn't as late tonight as...
Good evening (late afternoon for some) folks. I have spent some tie on the site reading the new stories since my last visit. One story scared me, but most inspired me. I got to thinking about a comment by Happiness when I mentioned my notebook full of motivational quotes. She suggested I post them in a story & I said I would. I haven't gotten to that post yet. I just came up with an idea tonight ...
