Dear Caela:
WOW-WHEE ....  what a wonderfully positive and encouraging  update that you posted on your thread.
****There is much truth in what you stated.

You are very correct, "challenges are not roadblocks" ... and "speed bumps are not mountains" but they rather are a test our resolve to overcome and to postulate positive actions and thoughts to make things better.

My favorite quote and personal mind-set regarding this comes from Winston Churchill as he penned the following quote during England's dark days in World War 2.
       "A Pessimist see Difficulty in every Opportunity,
           an Optimist sees Opportunity in every Difficulty"


Thank you Caela for posting and sharing your encouragement that applies to all of us.

HUGS and more HUGS, .... stay positive and resolve to overcome life's struggles.
Danielle

I guess one casualty of getting closer to yourself is things becoming ever less special...  For some time I haven't had anything that bubbles up to the level of a breakthrough moment... but today I was hanging out with friends....  at a covid -safe distance sat another group of acquaintances.  Through the night we get to talking back and forth when one of them looks at me with a shocked look in her eyes and asks "Are you wearing black stripes?  When did you start dressing so fashionably???" 

Dang it!!!!! My cover is blown!!!!  But then I realize.... I am who I am.... This is the presentation I put forth.  I am the person in black stripes with complementary sweatshirts!  So I complemented her dress and we went on with the conversation for the night!

Hugs sisters- remember that challenges do not have to be roadblocks! and that speed bumps do not have to be mountains! This is who I am..... and to those who would question me my answer is "ok.... so what???"   I hope that you all are able to find the strength in the moment to be the wonderful strong individuals that we all know that you can be!

Hugs!!

Caela

Randy, Pammie and Vivian-

Now you're really making me blush dears!!  I very much appreciate it- I woke up today feeling all out of sorts- and decided to give myself a little makeover to help myself feel better!   Blonde hair, new blouse, new sweater- new eyeshadow combo!  (yes, finally found a use for the yellow in my favorite eyeshadow palette!!) I really can't express how much the support I get from my sisters here means to me.  Thank you all for warming this girls heart!

Hugs.... Hugs..... HUGS!!

Caela,


You are sporting a nice look. :)


Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I dressed like my dream- just had to get past my meetings!

Coincidentally, this is the blouse I wore in my first selfie!

It’s what community is all about  -  3 streams, receiving support, providing support and being enlightened (some people manage a fourth which is providing insight to enlighten others but that’s probably not my forte)

Try to do what you can each day for it to be “special” in some way.   :)

Make it so!   :)

Every day we can be Ourselves is a special day - for those who cannot be their true selves permanently I guess just having a little me time in any given day would make it special

Each day that passes will never come back so if we can make good use of our time, that’s great.
Relax, help someone, learn, work, show love... 

I hope you all have a very nice Sunday.   :)
