A. Your world collapses. You do do too. You feel like you’re coming undone at the seams and ever being okay again seems impossible.

B. Little by little, you start to make some improvement despite yourself. Maybe you go a few hours without crying. Perhaps you sign up for a class or start to exercise in an attempt to regain some control and to better yourself.

  1. Phyllis thank you for bringing me back to this post. I needed it!! Btw is the retreat open to anyone?

    My New Years Resolution is to be Positive this year. So far so good! Have felt negative a few times but have rather quickly recovered by thinking of 3 positive things during those negative times.
    I am working with another lady on the opening of a Womens retreat. The theme of the retreat this year is Mindfulness. This also is helping me to be more positive.
    Blessings to you in the New Year and always!
    Phyllis
