Clearing The Air

We had rain last night and it did a lot to clear the air, everything feels much fresher and lighter today.
My mood is improving, I have so many thoughts and plans going round my head at the moment.
I don't feel so stuck, heavy and inert.

I watched an episode of Oprah earlier this afternoon and the message was "Don't Stop Believing"
I have always liked that song but it got to me today. If I don't believe in me, who will.
The "secret" of success is self belief and I haven't had that recently. 
In fact my inferiority complex has come back with a vengence over the past few weeks.
I have carried it like a heavy weight all of my life until Ralph came along.

Well it is getting kicked out today, I am not letting it get me down anymore.
I am grabbing my life back, no more self pity.
I am sick of listening to me moaning (Here and in my head)
It stops right here right now.

I am Blessed but have been Blind.

My eyes are now open wide and I will only see the good in my life.
My husband is my tower of strength, my reason, my soulmate.
My children and grandchildren are my pride and JOY.
My friends are my special support and happiness (Trish especially)

So the floor has been cleared,
The air has been cleared,
my dance of  JOY begins Today

Go girl - this is what I like to hear. If you are good then I am good. You lift me up - love that song too - If you don't know yet how much you are loved and your self confidence should be sky high as a result. Here comes another one -- Your simply the best!!! Love you loads xxxxxxxx

Unblind now to the beauty that surrounds us everyday!
It's all good!
Even when we don't think it is.

Hi, Sheilagh! Sorry I haven't been around much, but I've thought of you often. I'm glad you're having a breakthrough--I knew you would!

The end of your post reminded me of a line in a post I had written last year, called, "Joy Arises in His Footsteps."

I had received a rewrite of the old "Footsteps" poem via email and it brought such a burst of joy to my heart, that I posted it on my blog.

The link is below. If you find time to hop over to my spot, I think you'll enjoy the read.

"Perseverance means to continue in a given course until we have reached a goal or objective, regardless of obstacles, opposition, and other counter influences...Perseverance is a positive, active characteristic...It gives us hope by helping us realize that the righteous suffer no failure except in giving up and no longer trying."

--Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Never Give Up", Ensign, Nov. 1987, 8

Just a quote I thought you might enjoy Sheilagh! I am off on my holidays shortly. Stay safe and happy while I am away! love and hugs, xxoo
