Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

I have failed many times…


I have failed many times, and that is why I am a success. Michael Jordan

This quote means quite a bit to me right now.  I know that my family and I really need to move back in with my parents-in-law right now; I understand that it is necessary.  However, it feels like such a tremendous failure, failure on a level I’ve not experienced before.  I’m trying to keep my head up and keep moving to get my life back on a semi-normal path, but this really stinks.

I appreciate the kindness and encouragement of my family, including my parents-in-law.  This is a huge adjustment to them as well and they are taking right in stride.  Still, I look forward to getting back into my own house again.

I’m looking at this quote from Michael Jordan and trying to use it to encourage myself.   If I can learn from this, and grow, than this experience won’t really be a failure.  It will have served its purpose.  Now, I just need to figure out what I can learn from what I’m going through now.

  1. I feel your pain on this one, you obviously have a lot of pride in yourself. But hang in there and keep your head above water!

  2. Thank you so much – I appreciate the encouragement. It isn’t easy, but I’m trying to doggie paddle or something!
