Awesome job! I too am trying to live each day. Since Dec Ive been depressed, destructive and well being a child! My girls kindly pulled me outta that. Its a struggle for me everyday to get outta bed and move. I take it one day at a time. I cant do anything else other than that right now. I have made goals for myself for this summer: 1st- get my diabetes under control! 2nd-lose weight, about 30 lbs! and get a tattoo ( I want to get my girls names put on my body becuz they are the reason that I get up in the mornings). I will acheive this I have faith!

You can do it if you put your mind to it.
Set your goals in life, create a plan of action and go forward and accomplish whatever you desire, as humans we were not designed or created for failure, we develop that on our own and only we can break those chains.

May you have great success in accomplishing your goals.

You go for it! That is great. I have a friend who got her GED when she was in her 40's and she went on to take courses in college. She graduated in January and we are all so proud of her. You will feel so good when you have accomplished that.
