Earlier in the blog she says that she was more optimistic because "Here’s what I think my optimism was about. Yesterday, I accomplished the things I had committed to myself I would do.....Nothing huge – just little steps but completing these actions made me feel good – like I could trust myself to take care of me." Maybe that has been my issue. I think too big...YET, Oprah tells us to dream big. Such a confusing thing. Hmmm, maybe if I start small, take care of me in small, easy ways, I can still dream big. Is that the secret? Is it that easy?

So, today reading Kathy's blog made me have one of those Oprah "AH-HA" moments once again and the quote that was posted to Facebook above the link for the blog ( see at top of page) summed it all up. I need to take care of me. I needed to give a gift from me to me. So I am choosing from this moment on to let go of the family drama, step back from it and do what I can to deflate it when it comes at me. I have certain family members that will cheer, and others that will say I am sticking my head in the sand and still others that will indeed not be able to do the same as me on their parts and I will be forced to discuss things, but at least I can choose to deal with it in a manner that does not knock my crown off my head, perhaps it will just make it slightly askew.
