It's not getting what you want...it's wanting what you've got

I'm done.

I decided that I'm no good to anyone that I love when I'm this way. So I'm going to stop this "feeling blue" nonsense and start being positive. I'm not just burying my feelings and saying "Everything is peachy! Wow, life is grand!", because I know that's not always the case. In fact, I realize that I can't change this thing that's got me down right now. Instead of trying to change it, I'm going to do my best to accept it.

A very wise woman once said to me, "When I pray, I never ask God to change a situation or do something for me or someone else. I always pray for the same thing - I ask God to give me peace. When you're at peace, things will get better."

So I'm going to pray for peace. And a winning lottery ticket. HA! Just kidding. Just the peace, please.

In a few days I'll post the beginning of a new series. I started writing it a while ago but never finished it. Time to get going on that.

Lastly, a big thank you to everyone who commented and sent positive vibes my way. May God (or whatever you believe in) give you peace as well, especially when you need it most.

A woman who is like my mother always says "pray for peace, not patience. If you ask God for Patience, he will test it. If you ask God for peace, he will help you find it through the chaos."

I will pray for peace for you.

Peace is a good thing. You're right about that woman being wise. Be patient with yourself, shifting gears can take a while.

Know that we're all thinking about you and hoping for the best, and if peace is what the best is, than we'll double our efforts!

Way to pull yourself out of the blues. I hope your prayers for peace are answered quickly.

Glad to see you are starting to feel accepting. Finding peace inside isn't as easy as it sounds but it will come to you. XOXOXO Cheryl
