I've been here before. I walked a very hard road, and had a lot of success. Then life got in the way and I, at first slowly, and then more quickly, found myself sliding back toward the hole I had worked so hard to dig myself out of.

I would love to have a DeLorean (and the Flux Capacitor!) so I could go back and head myself off at the pass at the point where I stopped working on those things that had made such a difference in my life! But, I can't.

What I CAN do, however, is pick back up with the same commitments and affirmations which made such a difference in my life those years ago, and move forward. And that is what I choose to do.

So, a bit battered and worn by time and choices that did not affirm my life as they should, I lift up my head and look to the future, believing that what I want to achieve, I can, if I am willing to give of myself.

So here I am, entering the ring for another bout...
