Of Glasses, Road Work & Mile Markers

Writers block and I don't know what to write, so I'll just write about what I've keep telling myself these past 24 hours.
#####

When you're working towards something, be it your health,(or a loved one's health recovery,) or your diabetes, career, relationship status, etc., the days that you move forward are the days that make you feel like your glass is half full and have you feeling that anything is possible.

The days that you take a step back can make you cry and loose hope and leave your glass looking empty.....

And the days where you just stay put can drive your crazy and not appreciate the blessing that your glass is indeed somewhere in the middle.

Sometimes instead of looking at all the road work ahead on the journey, you have to concentrate on the mile marker in front of you and be happy that you've actually made it this far on the highway, in order to get back on track.

It's those days where you have to remember the little victories from previous days make all the difference in feeling down and staying down.

Well said Kelly. Setbacks are frustrating to be sure. Best to you.

So true! Keep telling those things to yourself. I hope tomorrow is another day of moving forward!

some days it pays to remember that if we all threw our problems in a pile, and we saw everyone else's, we'd grab our own back.
still thinking of you and your family.

We must win the little battles, before we can win the war. One battle at a time friend. Love you!

Moving forward is so much easier than falling back, indeed.

So very true and well said, K2. Here's to the mile markers you've sailed past and those right there... which provide the proof that you'll get to those yet on down the road in due time. Here's to a smooth journey on that path ahead, with many wishes and thoughts your way.
