I have overcome alcohol, cigarettes, living in fear and self doubt, insecurity, and lack of spirituality.
I am comfortable in my own skin (even though itís wrinkled now) and live in acceptance, love, daily peace, and service.

Great topic!!!!!!!!!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

And thank YOU for reading Donna and your kind words. (I thought the blog summarized it best)....And the gratitude that fills my heart for All of life's goodness that I have been fortunate enough to live far outweighs anything negative.
I feel the best way to win over any situation in life is to hold your head up high with dignity and never lose a sense of humor .

Jan I just read your blog. That is very impressive and inspiring. You are a very strong woman and to do that with 2 little kids to raise is amazing. I'm so glad you didn't let someone stop you by their harsh words.
I feel honored to know you and now know more about you. I literally have tears running down my cheeks.
I am amazed that you have the great sense of humor that you have, so often in your situation I have seen young mom's give up, but not you. Thank you for sharing something so personal

That is very sweet of you Cheri ...... I will just say this 'one' thing and leave it at that.
I long dreamed of becoming a nurse .... But I waited until both my older children started school, then I would start school. When I shared my dream with "Him" ... his snap response was (and I am not making this up) .... "I absolutely FORBID it!" ........."You had these kids; and now you are going to raise them!" ........ emoticon .... End of long story condensed if you get the drift.

Anyway, enough of that ....But I just remembered a blog I wrote last summer ..... emoticon .... Is a story of Overcoming and sheer determination when It looks like all hope is gone. ........."Never Take NO for An Answer." .... Here is the link if you would like to read ...

Whatever caused you to leave your first husband I do not believe your children should punish you for it.You are an amazing person and I think you are very kind and offer so much to the world. I think children have to remember they are often not in possession of all the facts. I dealt with many young people in the military and I am willing to bet you were a saint compared to some of the parents I saw.I am not a betting person either !

For some reason I had forgotten to be visiting this thread that I am going to do it more often now.
Kudos to all of you for the things you have overcome and also all of you ladies express a positive outlook on life after overcoming the different things that you have.

I have overcome overwhelming sadness over my two older kids NOT forgiving me to the point of reading the riot act to me for divorcing their father decades ago. ( I never did tell them why that came about as they were very young and I also don't believe in airing dirty laundry so I kept quiet).
They chose to stop speaking to me after I told them I was not going to be their doormat and like GMadonna I also do not need this kind of animosity and lashing out in my life any longer. I overcame the depression that was there for a while and now I am a very joyful person .

And I don't want to copy Rita and say that I am a "domestic Goddess " so let's just say I am still searching for an appropriate title LOL .

I've overcome a debilitating depression. I would go days and days that I didn't even get dressed, brush my hair or even my teeth. I cried at commercials. Sad ones and happy ones. It was a horrible time. But I got through it. I don't have time for depression now that I'm Rita DG (domestic goddess). I still can go days that I procrastinate but I eventually get myself in gear and do whatever I've put off. Sometimes I have to bite the bullet and pay late fees because I've put off paying bills or making phone calls, etc. The way I look at it is it's better than it was before and as long as I stay active it's going to keep getting better and better.

Especially with Spark friends like all of you. emoticon

How sad to be petty and defeated without reason.I go to Hydrotherapy on the base and one of the guys that got his legs blow off in Afghanistan loves the children like I do ,so we tend to stay after hydrotherapy and play with the kids and because neither one of us will use a power wheelchair we have strong arms so we grab the kids with one arm and swing on the ropes the infantry use for training with a child under one arm singing "George , George of the Jungle strong as he can be " and of course when we get to the "Watch out for that tree" we jump in the water And one of the Moms said "Are you going to let them do that with your child?" The other Mom said "Yup , I'd rather my child learned that people can do anything they set their minds to than that they are useless after they get hurt, their father is a soldier too"" Besides they can swim faster with just arms than I can with arms & legs "

I have learned to put the people in my life that are holding me back with their pettiness and defeatist attitudes behind me.

I don't need people like that in my life. It has been hard because some of them have been friends for 30 years, but seems like the older they got the less they enjoyed life. So sad for them that they are missing out on so much enjoyment.

One of my challenges right now is a side effect of getting off a medication. I keep dozing off any time I'm not moving around. Sleep is light and unsatisfying. It should go away slowly over the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to that tine! The great news is that getting off the medication had the desired effect and it happened several *months* before it was predicted to!! The tremor in my right arm/hand is close to being gone!

My emotional eating these days is less and less! While I have not totally overcome it is so much better than it was twenty years ago. I used to buy bags of junk and eat it in one sitting when something was bothering me. Now I try to face that thing head on, make an effort to live a happier life and have strategies to minimize emotional eating like brain games on the computer and exercise. I also try to remember how I feel after a binge! Yuck! I am working on turning to SPARKPEOPLE more when I want to eat emotionally.

I have overcome my need to complain about everything! I took it on as a new habit to form to "not complain all the time" and I've been successful for approximately three months! Does that mean I never complain? No... it just means I don't do it constantly nor babble off a list of complaints ever day to my poor DH! This goes hand in hand with seeing the blessings inside of the problems!

Just trying to get by without any extra added pain. I'll be doing my gazelle and maybe recumbent bike too depends on how bad the sciatic starts acting up. Have a great day everyone.

Reading the different blogs and such on SP keeps me going!

I plan to sleep at some point

When I wake up I am going to work on a plan on what areas of town to work on first for Relay sponsors. This will take up a good chunk of the day. I really need to get a map of some sort or maps.

From there I am not really sure.

Today I will increase my time on the stationary bike and try again on the treadmill. Every day my knee feels a bit more stable. This afternoon my son and I are meeting with the travel agent to start planning our trip to Norway in August.
