Attitude is what will get you to where you want to be. If you have an attitude of gratitude you will go far in this world, since gratitude will always remind you where you have been and where you are going. Without gratitude you will never realize all you dreams, goals and desires.

I have not always had the proper attitude, I have had a self defeating one that has owned me and controlled me. One that has stunted me, kept me from what I wanted. I no longer have that way of thinking any longer, I have the thought that if there is something that you really want and you act as if you already have it, you will have it, it cannot be denied you. However; first, I had to start with having gratitude and I keep that continually close to me.

I am so grateful for all the blessings I have had come into my life, some of those blessings ended up coming from some of the hardest challenges I have had to overcome. When I think of my oldest daughter, I was 18 years old (a baby myself) I had to grow up and raise her at the same time, I really did a pretty good job. She is an amazing, strong woman, I love her so much. I know that sometimes she doesn't realize how wonderful I know that she is, I know I pushed her a lot when she was younger. I just didn't want her to fall into the same traps that I did, I wanted her to be her own woman and have her own mind. She did and she does!

My youngest has other challenges she has to deal with, I love that she is so head strong and creative. She is giving, kind and loving. I want her to keep this attitude with her as I never want her to be a follower, looking for acceptance. I want her to shine her own light and lead.

I have not always chosen the easiest path in life, I have taken some curvy paths that have been difficult but when I think about it, I honestly wouldn't change any of those challenges. I would not be where I am today (which is exactly where I am supposed to be) but I also know where my future is headed and with who. I will never give up on what I know is right or with who I am supposed to be with. One day, he will know it too... I actually think he already knows it, he just hasn't accepted it yet. Change is hard but oh, it is so worth it! I have come to love change for it is leading me in the direction where I have always known that I am supposed to be.
