Hold onto that smile always. When you start to lose it, close your eyes and see your beautiful new world. Step into it. Own it. Believe it.
You will find doors opening to opportunities for change. Have the courage to walk through those doors. One day, one step at a time. Your life will change if you have the belief and the courage to make it happen.
No amount of "help" will change you. It is all within your power. When you count on others to bail you out, you will remain a victim. Stand up and own your truth, believe in yourself. Talk well of yourself. Dwelling on and speaking about the problem will only keep you mired in it.
Declare to God and all who care, I AM well, prosperous, important, or whatever it is you feel you want to be. It may take time, but time goes by either way, you may as well use it to your advantage.
Speaking for myself, my life has changed completely and it was simply believing I could make it change, then taking the steps set before me. It was scary and overwhelming and wonderful.
Fantasizing a lovely life.
