  1. Loved every word in this post…especially – “just be grateful of the new begining”.

    Thanks, as always, for your continued inspiration!

    • Hi Annabelle,
      I for one know you have come a long way over the time that you have been commenting here at 365 Less Things. Sometimes it is the psychological lessons we need to learn the most and then things just fall into place.

    • Hi Cathryn,
      absolutely, kick those useless feeling out the door and be grateful for a new beginning. As the saying goes ~ Today is the first day of the rest of your life. ~ Begin again and again if necessary until you are satisfied with the direction in which you are going. Live and learn.

  3. What a great message here. I love your common sense, Colleen!
