Feeling better

I'm sitting here this morning drinking coffee, listening to gospel music, and getting things ready for my new bird to get here. He probably won't be here today but it will be soon!! My animals are a major part of my peace! They bring me so much joy that I forget to be sad or mad sometimes! I have been through so much that by all rights I shouldn't be alive today! God kept me alive for a purpose and I can see why! I have to be here for so many reasons! If I don't share my story and use my experiences to help people and animals, then what am I really doing with the chance that God has given me to give back, whenever and wherever I can! I have bad days but I'm learning how to turn to God first! My drug addiction killed everything but my body! I looked like the walking dead! He brought me out of hell. I love that I finally found a place to go to give and get support! I have to stop beating myself up over trivial stuff and just count all of my blessings, in which there are too many to number! I thank everyone for supporting me!

What a beautiful journal. I really liked how you said you want to stop beating yourself up over trivial stuff and just count all your blessings. That is really nice. I hope you will continue to have a happy day. It is so nice that you help birds. They are beautiful and so are you.

Thank you! I really have had a good day! All day! I\'m back on my anti-depressant and I\'m feeling much better! I always do better when I start my day this way! I\'m all ready for my new bird to get here! I have some peace again!
