To all who come here… Believe.
Today is my birthday…this appointment is my gift to myself.
The more I face my fears the more free I become. I know one day I will be through this.
Gradually you feel whole again. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other.
I have found an inner strength I never know I had. I can survive this – you can too.
It is never your fault. Don’t let someone else define your life.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
