A+ Attitude

I feel how this kid must be feeling. I feel great! There is nothing better than finally getting something off your chest that has been weighing you down. In my case, on Sunday I finally did just that and I am happier and more content with life than I have been for many, many months. The outcome of my actions remains to be seen but I'm guessing I've just chased someone who was very important to me out of my life for good. 

That can be a sad thing, but it's a trade-off. I empowered myself and finally walked the walk and didn't just talk the talk. Make sense? The only thing I'm sad about is the wasted potential, but what are you going to do? We can't change each other's agency so we just have to do everything in our power to be as honest and communicative as possible.

Gold star for me!

Rachel, Rachel... here's the deal. (Analogy on it's way...) Susan Orman noted financial guru, says that sometimes we just hang on to stuff that is weighing us down and we really need to purge and get rid of "things" (people) who are cluttering our thoughts and space. By doing what you did, you are now making ROOM for true richness and blessings in your life. I give you 10 GOLD STARS, you are a strong wonderful woman, and happiness is on it's way. NOW YOU HAVE ROOM FOR IT!!!!
