focusing on the positive is a good thing, but for me, it's never been enough. I'm not okay because I have these things; I'm actually okay because I choose to be okay.
Sure, I'd like to keep what i have, but if I lose it, well, that's okay. I'll start over, and I gotta tell you, it's been one helluva ride.
When I think of what has happened, it would be easy to be bitter from many of the events of my life (and honestly, I have been hurt often enough that even today I am struggling to deal with the pain), but when you look at these events, in their entirety and as interconnected events, it's such a fascinating journey down my stream.
