As we travel through life there are always those times when decisions just have to be made when the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce and the rain seems to soak  our parade!

There are some situations where all we can do is to simply let go and move on, gather courage together and choose a direction that carries us toward a new dawn.

So let's pack up our troubles and take a step forward. The process of change can be tough but let's think about all the excitement ahead if we can be stalwart enough!

There could be adventures we've never imagined just waiting around the next bend and wishes and dreams just about to come true in ways we can't yet comprehend!

Perhaps we'll find friendships that spring from new interests as we challenge our status quo and learn that there are so many options in life, and so many ways we can grow!

Perhaps we'll go places we've never expected and see things that we've never seen nor traveled to fabulous, faraway worlds and wonderful spots in between!

Perhaps we'll find warmth and affection and caring - a "somebody special"  who's there to help us stay centered and listen with interest to stories and feelings we share.

Perhaps we'll find comfort in knowing our friends are supportive of all that we do and believe that whatever decisions we make, they'll be the right choices for us!

So let's keep putting one foot in front of the other and taking our life day by day. There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road. Don't look back, we're not going that way!
