None of us is ever OK, but we all get through everything just fine.”
Pema Chödrön, Start Where You Are: A Guide to Compassionate Living
I've been wanting to write a blog for awhile now. What was stopping me? Oh, everything. It's like when you were in school and you had a paper due and all of a sudden you noticed your room really needed cleaning and deserved your absolute attention RIGHT NOW. But despite such distractions, my encouraging inner voice kept nagging me to write. I love to write, so it's not like twisting my arm to do so. However, my bully voice would drown the other one out, yelling that I wasn't ready. But when are we ever really "ready"? When did I get caught up in the lie (again) that I had to be perfect before I moved forward?

One morning when I got on the computer, I kept running across a consistent message:
M-kay, message received Universe. Thanks for the encouragement!

The last straw and key to unlocking my self imposed cage came from a blog I love to read. See that last picture there on the far right? That's from the website Momastery, written by Glennon Doyle Melton, who is all things awesome, funny, real, with a heart as big as all outdoors. I read this on her site that very day, and I decided I was putting one foot in front of the other to make things happen. Whenever I've done this in the past, good things happen.

The universe rewards action, not thought. I'm ready. Or maybe I'm not. So what? Here we go.

In order for us to be a more respectable person. We must know ourselves first, understand the things that surround us. Let yourself be happy and contented with the things you possess in life. Don't limit yourself on the things you cannot do, think that you are on to something that no one else can. You are unique and can do greater things also. Learn how to face everything by yourself and stand out, without depending your self and happiness to other masses. I love this article.

While this may appear like a touch of neurosis the advance modifying this high can and happens to many individuals and many end up losing their homes since they can't pay their home loan at the higher rates.
