Sorrow Is Not Forever Love Is

Sorrow Is Not Forever Love Is

Hope you enjoy the following article "Sorrow is not forever ~ Love Is" which I have found is very true...Although the heartache of losing our children will be with us always, the pain does soften so that going forward, as thy would want us to do, gets easier with time... But by the same token, I think our love for them and those around us grows as we get stronger.. it changes us forever .. and proves the theory that true love never dies...Cherie Houston

So often, one attempts to face the whole future at once.  But we will not live that period all at once, only day by day.  Don’t try to face twenty years.  Face today.

When that has been achieved, face tomorrow.  You will find more and more ways in which you can cope.  The Chinese have a saying that a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.  There is no way you can take the fifteenth, or the two hundred-seventh step, before you have taken the first.

It can be difficult to face going out again and resuming your regular activities.  IT can take more courage to face the little things than the big things in life.  Going out shopping for groceries for the first time can become an ordeal.  Making the change more complete could help.  Try a different store, a different day or time, and go with a friend.  When it seems very hard to decide what to do first, maybe it’s not very important where you start, as long as you start.  Choose a simple task and get started. 

Once you've begun, it will be far easier to set your priorities, and you will have gained in confidence for already having achieved something.
