A Journal Entry


This picture says a million words, even the shirt only says one.

Focus more on the word and less of the colors, in the grand scheme of things, they do not matter.

What matters most is that I am a fierce, brave person who faces many challenges day in and day out.

My life has had quite a journey, ups and downs, joys, and disappointments.

Getting through each day sometimes means getting through the hour and knowing tomorrow is a new day.

One thing I have to say is that I never give up on picking up the pieces and moving on.

Doing that is not always easy, there are hurdles and times that it seems hopeless and unpromising.

But as Mrs. Gump said in Forrest Gump, “Miracles Happen Every Day.”

Therefore, I mustn’t magnify on the negatives or challenges in my life, although my brain is often wired that way.

In the grand scheme of things, life is not that bad, even though I want to beat myself up for things that may not have happened the way that I wanted them to go or that I did not do something according to plan.

Life happens, but the most important thing is to move on from our mistakes and do better.

I am deserving of a good life and for the most part it is good to me, but I must hold my end of the deal.

Do what works and what is right, it only makes things better.

If I believe that word brave, I know that it took me a long time to get to this point and regressing to points that I know are not good for me is not the solution to the

things I think are wrong or that I overreact to.

It is doing what I need to, being honest with myself and making the best of any situation.

For I know that I am brave, and I will rise above any challenge I am faced with.

No matter how hard it may be, I know I can fight it and let go of what was.

Because that word on the shirt and the picture as a whole proves that greatly.
