For those of you who don’t know me very well, I’m not the kind of person who wallows. I think it’s a waste of time and energy. However, I do believe in venting, which is healthy. October was a tough month to see the cup as half full.
I even received good news, found out I’m pregnant, but it turned into weeks of endless worry instead of celebration. We tried last year and suffered a miscarriage, which left me a wreck. I know the advice is not to tell anyone you’re expecting until you hit the second trimester. I didn’t tell anyone last year, except for my husband of course, and we simply went through the devastation in silence without support. So, I’m shredding the rules this year!
Whenever you hit a rough patch and wonder IF things will turn around, stay focused on one undeniable thing. Nothing ever stays the same. Life is dynamic, fluid, shifting with the tide of the universe.
You are the single greatest catalyst to change your life. Start by changing your perspective. Focus on what you want. Concentrate on the end result of what you
In my darkest moments of doubt, I turn on “a light” and visualize reaching whatever destination I’ve chosen. Yes, the journey may be long and riddled with obstacles, but only envision success in the end.
It’s not always easy to find “a light” to help you see through the darkness. For me, music motivates and uplifts every time. I’ll leave you with the one song that helps me snap out of a defeatist mind-set and remember that I am the architect of my own destiny.
This is going to be an amazing month! Anybody else feel that way?

What do you do to snap out of a funk? Does music help change your mood? If so, do you have a theme song?
