You knew it was coming. You just didn’t know when.
With the asphalt of our journey through life, emotional pot holes will fall. The very boundaries in which we live are tested and sometimes, we fishtail. The only thing to do is steer in the direction of the spin.
How to you allow yourself to fill your tank, check the tires and keep your hands on the wheel when all you feel like doing is getting out of the car? You just do. The same way you turn the wipers on when it rains.
Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will.

That's the story of my life. I never know when it's coming…..good or bad. My life is totally unpredictable.
I kick my tires and "decompress" by playing Farmville on Facebook. Yes…I know. Don't say it.
It's not how many times you fall down, it is how many times you get up!
That is where the strengh comes from-indomitable will.
Very true. I like the quote at the end. It's a keeper.
It's all over. I am reading the same blog posts (not really, but the jist) all over!I just haven't written mine yet. Love your quote. You rock young un.
Thanks everyone! Life is good. Just bumpy sometimes. 🙂
Although bumpy, I am not sure that I would want completely smooth. How else would we appreciate the good?
Exactly!!!! Life throws us curve balls so we can appreciate the home runs.
Well…I had you in my google reader feed and then The hideous radio station of advertisements came on.I pray this is not the direction blogging adverts are going. I'm here to read, not to have my ear holes raped. Good Bye.
