IWSG: JANUARY 2018:

IWSG JANUARY 2018:
Happy new year to you all:
Thanks to Alex and team for ensuring
A great group. Long may it continue.

MY HOPES FOR THIS YEAR:
For quite a few years now,
My life has been a mess.
Due to health and personal issues,
I've been in the "Wilderness".
 
My hopes for this year,
Is to "Rejoin" this world so good.
I can't undo what problems I've had
But I've learned from them....which is good.
 
I can't undo health issues,
They;re with me for life.
With the right  Epilepsy medication,
It should end some strife.
 
My personal issues ,
I've come to accept.
Things WILL righten it's self,
That's what I will  expect.
 
Positivity is the key word,
Which has been lacking for a while.
Whatever the weather or problems,
On my face will be a smile.
 
That is what I aim for,
In this year of 2018 you see.
Whatever I've endured and have yet to endure,
I'll be a better me.
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
YVONNE:

    1. Hi Natalie, Happy New Year, hope your problems will be in the past. I have been Epiletic for 32 years and it lived with me but one doctor took me off my medication last March and it got out of control so am hoping for a better medication.
      Take care.

  2. Can't change what has happened. You can only adjust and rise above it.

  12. Beautiful beginning for a New Year. You've heard the old saying: "The past is gone you can't go back; the future we don't know about; so all we have is this moment. What we do with it is our decision. You have a lovely attitude. Happy, Happy New Year with a future to look forward to. Love.
