After the journal I wrote today...I read these two emails from a friend of mine...they seemed very fitting...enjoy!

You don't have to look very far to find a reason to feel sorry for yourself. But why would you want to waste even a few moments of your precious life on self pity?
It's easy to come up with perfectly reasonable excuses for lowering your expectations and hiding away from life. But then all you're left with are worthless excuses.
There are certain circumstances under which some people see themselves as victims. Yet under those exact same circumstances other people find and make the most of truly grand opportunities.
When you expect life to be cruel and harsh, it will live up to your expectations. When, on the other hand, you consider yourself to be extremely fortunate, you will become even more so.
There is great value in every moment. Positive possibilities are generated by every turn and twist of fate.
No matter what may happen or fail to happen, life is what you choose to make it. Choose again and again, in every situation, to make it great.


and

Responsibility is not a burden. It is the key that enables you to exercise control over your own destiny.
Only by taking responsibility are you able to move life in the direction of your own dreams and visions. Responsibility fully engages the best of who you are.
Responsibility can be difficult, time-consuming, unfair, inconvenient and uncomfortable. Yet it also brings you to a level of empowerment that cannot be reached in any other way.
At the heart of true achievement is responsibility. An essential element of meaningful fulfillment is responsibility.
Every great opportunity is an opportunity to take responsibility. Whatever the situation, the most successful way forward is to act with responsibility.
No matter what has happened, or who is to blame, or how it all came to be, choose to take full responsibility for your life. For that is the first step in making it great.

I have had a very tough week and for the last two days just felt plain out sorry for myself. I'm glad you posted these emails for us to read. It's time to stop with the self pity and move on to see the new challenges as something to work on. Thanks
