Starting off to a Good Week

I want to say something about my postings. This Blog is more for me than it is for anyone else.

Sometimes I write about melancholy subjects. I truly don't mean to upset or worry anyone. I am not looking for sympathy and I am not trying to say I got cheated in life.

I love my life.

I truly believe that every experience, regardless to how difficult, helped form me into the person I am. Who I have become.

I don't always understand why I have had to go through a difficult time, but I do know that it made me stronger.

My childhood was a "tad" dysfunctional. Many had it worst, some had it better.
It is what it is. We take what is dished out, and make the best of it. Sometimes we do not realize we are having a good time until it is taken from us.

The decision to start the Blog was to help me feel better. To air some feelings and learn to accept what is.

It has become much more to me recently. I love starting my day with a cup of coffee, and checking the blogs. I start with mine, reading comments, then move on to read my Blogger friends. The connection I have with these "Friends" is genuine. I care about them. I pray for them. I cheer when they are up, I feel sadness when they are pained. I laugh, alot. I have learned that it does not matter if you are from Indianapolis or Australia. We are very much alike. I have favorite reads. Depending on my moods. I certainly would love to meet some of these friends, as I feel I have known them forever. The similarities sometimes are so uncanny. Then sometimes I think... how odd, I would never! Mostly, I just love to peek into other peoples lives and discover how "normal" I am. How good I feel that there are other Jan's in this crazy world. I love getting a comment from you all.

So, please don't fret. I am mostly a happy person.

I look forward to this week. I feel it is going to be a good week. I am going to make it a good week, even if it kills me!

That should do it, the affirmation and dedication to control how you live and love. It helps. Folks who are positive, who are cheerful and grateful, attract the same, and nurture each other. See? Besides, the papers are all over bad news. They don't talk about the joys of having and caring for a home, children, a legacy of love and cherished moments.

p.s. how are the storms in your place?

I am not always a cheerful, positive person - that's just not me, it never has been, even from a young age. I always believe that God creates us as we're meant to be. I'm a serious soul most of the time though I love to laugh as well.

I've always understood and appreciated your blog and am glad to have made your friendship here. :-) Some days are happy and carefree and others are spent deep in thought. I wouldn't have it ANY other way.

I appreciate you.
