One Day At A Time...Let's Go

Where I am today... I still have my ups and downs, but I take it one day at a
 time and I just hope that I can be the best that I can possibly be, not only
 for myself, but also for the ones around me that need me to be
 strong and consistent....  Someone they can rely on...

I tell people that the best we can do is to live one day at a time.  Live it to the 
fullest.  Live it with dignity and with courage, to never lose sight of the
 real issues we face.  The time to really pull ourselves together and to
give it our best are the times when we feel like giving up.

When our defenses are at it's lowest, our morale is not at its best, that is
when we have to pull from deep within us and to say, "I will not give up.
 I am a fighter, and if I can believe it I can achieve it."

To everyone out there, when things appear at be at their lowest, it is then time for us
to do something.  To just sit back and say, "it is God's will," to me is the easy
 way out.  I believe that if I need help it is up to me to do something
 about it.  If I want results I must be an active participant, and not
 just sit in a corner praying and hoping all will turn out OK.

That is just not me.  I need to be a part of the solution and I need to be informed.
With this in mind, I am ready to face whatever it is the day holds for me.  Does not
necessarily mean I will always like it, but at least I know and I am better prepared to
deal with whatever life throws my way.  Not always easy, but a good attitude goes
 much further than a bad one.  Arvid says, "sometimes you sound much
 braver than you really are, and it's OK.  I love you for it."

Life is always throwing the unexpected at us.  Nothing else to do but to walk
 straight into the challenge.  Always keep moving because once we stop
everything will come crumbling down on us all at once.  We all know that
the best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.

I'm trying to stay as calm as possible and focus one day at a time, but when
 reality sets in, I feel everything: anxiety, excitement, nerves, pressure and joy..
Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means every thing's possible again. 
You live in the moment, you die in the moment. You live in the light, 
you die in the light. You take it all one day at a time...
