Keep trying….

Rather late with my blog post today as I have been dealing with the unexpected. This being a massive kick in the teeth, but I still have my inner calm. I just read this back and I had typed calm as clam…pleased to see I spotted that one!

You fail when you…..

lose hope
live by others expectations
stop caring
don’t get back up
allow your quiet mind to be destroyed
look for happiness outside of yourself
are always waiting for tomorrow
stop trying
give up….

Never ever ever give up x

    “…a massive kick in the teeth.” Your upset is there in the words, Jane. I’m so sorry; life can be cruel at the time we support and kindness the most.

    You will overcome. Blessings – Maxi

    I have the book “Don’t Give Up Charlie Brown” It was a gift from a girlfriend several years ago. Its the most emowering and uplifting book.
    You are brave and courageous Jane.
    Our roles as women change over time. And others fear our changes because of how it affects them. They can’t look past what will change in their own lives as a result.
    Hold fast my dear friend. You are going in the right direction.
    Love & Hugs!!
    Jeannie xxxx
