Facing Adversity Head On

In the face of adversity, you do whatever it takes to endure. ~ Tony Volpentest

So today was a defining moment, I realized I have allowed myself to get out of control in certain aspects of my life.  I have to change the way I live immediately, I have nothing to rely on but myself.  Now we will see what I am truly made of... I hope I am as strong as I feel and as strong as people think I am .

There's so much going on in my mind right now, I just keep going around and around.  So yesterday I read the most inspiring message I think I have read in a very long time.   She wrote how all she saw and felt was negativity and that she had even been involved in it.  Consequently she and a few friends have started a Facebook campaign that I cannot wait to get involved with.  These people are making their updates about what they are grateful for, thankful for and happy about.

I think this is an awesome idea, we all need to put some positivity back out into the world, that is what will bring hope and joy.... not all the negativity that is spewed so easily.  Going forward today, when someone asks me how I am, I will say, I am wonderful, I am fantastic, I am amazing.  I will not get in on the poor me attitude no longer.  I am getting rid of cable this week.... I don't watch it, I don't care if I ever watch it again.  I don't want my Valentina to be watching it so much either... there is mostly trash on there anyway.

I am getting rid of the home phone, I rarely use it, I'll use my blackberry.  That is just a waste of money.  I am seeing the doctor Tuesday and I am hoping like crazy that he says I can run, then I will start Tuesday night.  I know it will be slow going in the beginning but I plan to be that butterfly and I will soar eventually.

I have faltered on my cleanse in areas, no excuses though, I am just going to get back on track and follow through.  Right now I feel like there is no stopping me, whatever I want I will be able to attain, whatever I want to do I will be successful in it and mostly I feel like anything is possible.  It feels amazing and a little scary but I am going with it, I want to see how far I can take this feeling and what I can accomplish.

  1. I think you are doing a great thing Launna! The more we absorb negativity into our lives the more we focus on negative patterns. I find that's true in my own life which is why I have started reading positive quotes and focus on my relationship with God. I also listen to uplifting and fun music and have found it does help :) You WILL make it through and soar I know you will. You ARE a lot stronger than you think! Sending a hug your way!

  2. Hello Launna:
    This is really good and very positive. But remember, one small step at a time. In that way real progress is made.

  3. Thank you Brenda, I appreciate that you believe in me:)

  4. Thank you Jane and Lance, I really need to absorb myself in everything as positive as possible:). I've taken things too slowly in the past;)

  5. Mom!!!! Don't get rid of the home phone. How will we talk? :(

  6. Hi Drea, you can call me from your home phone, we can Skype, there are numerous ways we can talk for nothing:)
