If you are Persistent, you will Get It. If you are Consistent, You Will Keep It. It's not what you do some of the time, it's what you do MOST of the time that counts. Never give up, and you'll never fail.
A successful woman is one who can build a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at her.<<<< this makes me think of the lyrics to New Romantics by Taylor Swift, "cause baby i could build a castle out of all the bricks they threw at me"
Accept that years were wasted on an alcoholic. Accept that you were married to a man who was in denial. Let go of the abuse you took from an alcoholic. Let go of the man who chose drinking over his children and wife. Have faith in what will be.
