Obstacles... (Connie J...)

Lately, I've been contemplating how I react when I come up against obstacles. Being raised in a Domestic Violence situation, I sometimes, still, get the urge to run and hide and close myself off from the world.

Thanks to my friends, and an ever-renewing sense of responsibility, that is NOT a real option any more; not that it doesn't still rear its' ugly head, periodically.

I struggle daily with most of what I blog about - but I just want people to know, especially if they really relate, that you're NOT alone. We just have to persevere, and try to stay current with our feelings. What we're feeling at any given moment is very real, but every day IS a new day. There are definitely things we have NO control over - but how we react to EVERY situation we're presented with IS under our control; well, maybe not the initial reaction, but our overall reaction IS OUR CHOICE!!!

What are you going to chose today?

Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
