MY LIFE MOTTO: "Just keep swimmin'......just keep swimmin' ......just keep swimmin'......" (from "Finding Nemo")
Life happens, and I've learned that if I just keep moving, I get through it ok, eventually. I don't have to like it, I just have to get through it.
Whether it's dealing with my kids' social or personal struggles: autism, possible ADD, hormones, or behavior issues; or with my own: faith, relationships, MS, finances, or just searching for what I want to be when I grow up...I know all I have to do is keep functioning.
My kids count on me, and I want to be the person they think I am.
"Fake it 'til you make it" seems to work for me, too! When something is hard, I pretend it's not, until it's easier or until it's over! But I hate fake people!
