My Year To Thrive

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~Maya Angelou

Will I Ever Get It Right?


Just dropping by to say I haven’t abandoned you!  I have been having a very difficult time the last few months.  I have written about it, but those posts will probably never see the light of day.

I’m trying to get back on my feet, & what I’m really wondering right now is if any of the positive changes I have been making will ever stick?  I just have to keep working at it & eventually something has to click, right?  I have only ran or otherwise exercised sporadically this summer, & have done very little writing or crafting.  I did however not die over the summer, so that’s always a plus.

So that’s me.  Still here.  Still struggling.  Still trying to crawl out of this hole.

Hope you guys are doing well!

  1. I don’t know you and randomly found your blog for the first time today. I wanted to let you know that I wrote that first sentence, exactly the same, in my journal this morning. Also? Neither one of us may ever get it right, but we’re damn sure going to keep trying. You got this!

  2. what is this “right” you speak of? Does anyone ever REALLY get it? My parents are wonderful people, married 44 years, solid, sweet good people. Still renting a house and have no retirement to speak of. Other people thrive in business, but their personal relationships are shitty. Does anyone ever hit any kind of sweet spot of having it all? If so, they need to publish a book or something because I would buy that shit.

    Nope. I think we all just live our lives and do the best we can with what we’re handed. Some of us have been handed a lot of shit sammiches. We make do. You’re doing that. Good on’ya mate.
