Simple Things on a Sunday

Sometimes, it just hits me.  I can be driving somewhere, or in the grocery store, or laying in bed at night, or standing in the shower, or on my morning walk, or out playing frisbee with Little Dude when it hits.  Sometimes it's a small little nudge.  Sometimes it can knock me down.  The reality hits.  The reality of what really happened in my life.  The reality of what I endured.

But almost every single time it does hit, I shift my thinking and I revel in the reality that somehow, I am still standing.  I quietly cheer for myself because I am still happy.  To be truthful,  I stand in amazement that I was actually able to overcome something I thought would be the end of me.

Today, I am so grateful for the "toughness" that I found deep within me.

We all have it.  

You are stronger and tougher than you know.



  1. Yes! Yes! Yes! A great reminder!!!

  2. This is exactly what I needed to hear today to get me through this divorce! Thank you!

    1. Chelsie, I am sending you all the love I have. Divorce is not easy... please know that there are better days ahead. I promise you.... you will make it through :)


  3. What a fabulous quote and how true. I completely agree and despite when you're in it, it sucks so much, on the other side you're such a stronger, braver, better and wiser person.
