http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_of_Change_(speech) (Yes there is a quote of speech for everything...)
The winds of change are yet again blowing through my life... you would think they would have either given up by now or found someone else to pick on!!! The camps are divided - out of concern so I understand why.
Sometimes in life though we have no choice but to allow the changes. We don't always get to pick and choose who stays and who goes. The bonds of family can't always just be cast aside. I would like to be able to say no but something deep inside me is saying that in this situation that is not the right option. That it is time for me to brave up and face what I have hidden from for too long.
I'm stronger. I feel more capable. I'm fully aware I do not have all the answers. I know I could be making a mistake. But I'm willing to take the risks, although at the same time I am putting into place structures to keep me protected. A balancing act.... but one that I need to do.
I'm surrounded by people who love me and care about me. Knowing that gives me the strength to take this on. I know that you are there for me... to support me... that I am a person worthy and valued. You can't know how blessed that makes me feel and how much I treasure each and every one of you. All I ask is for that love and care to always be there.
I really believe I will be ok. Some days will be tough, some probably even nightmarish, but some some days may be just beautiful with wonderful memories to tide me through. I believe that without stepping on to this road I'll never know just how strong I really am... and as they say, you never know how strong you are until you have to be.
