# 17



I wanted to use this entry to thank everyone for their comments, advice and suggestions. Believe me, they are helpful and do not go unrecognized.


I do think I am blessed sometimes despite the bad times. I believe difficult times happen to people and with them comes knowledge and a wisdom few possess.


I spend so much time thinking, "why me" or "I have lost so much" or "who would want me now" or "my dreams are all gone". It is a very depressing place to be, probably a normal place to be. But there is another place, just over the mental ridge and it is a place where we can change the way we look at our world. It is a place of new ideas, new life, new boundaries and parameters. It is also a place where the fear doesn't monopolize time. It must be a function of our higher thinking. I am now just realizing this and it is powerful.


Today I am tired but have no other complaints. Much Thanks to everyone for all the continuing support. It has had a positive effect and improved my outlook.

You know, everytime I catch myself asking something like, 'Why me?' I have to stop myself and ask, 'Why not me?' That may not help you at all, but it's sure helped me put my stroke and life into perspective.

Yes, it's that type of thought process change that can be good. The only problem is that when I was a teenager I was forced into a cult and they changed our minds for us, it changed our identity. Ever since, it has been a very difficult chore to alter my thinking especially at the request of another person. I am VERY skeptical and always try to stick to my own thinking.


But now I am seeing that there is great benefit in knowing when to alter thinking and it can really improve life.
