You can do your part

When you are guided to grow

It’s because you can

Someone sees your potential

It’s your job to set it free

Keys in Her Hand

Charli Mills challenged us to OPEN DOORS this week. Join in the opportunity to try your hand at Flash Fiction by FOLLOWING her to the Carrot Ranch

She knew she had to leave a marriage that most likely should have never taken place. Doors were opening all the time. On their honeymoon when he raped her, that was the first door. But she was just too shocked and confused. Their first wedding anniversary when he told her what a piece of shit she was, was another open door. But the sweet apology closed the door because she believed she was worthless anyway.

7 more years of verbal, mental, and emotional abuse opened the door to counseling. Which lead to opening the door to the lawyer’s office.

Have choices

Remember that

You may not like them

But that is because of

The unknown factors they hold

When you’re ready, you’ll decide to

Let curiosity take over

That, in itself, is the choice of choices

Attitude of Gratitude April 25 2018

Thank you for your attitude of gratitude!

Sometimes we think we are losing power. But this illusion just may empower us to find our center of peace. Why struggle, take a deep breath and surrender to the powers that be.

Affirmation: I intend on remaining calm in the midst, of life’s storms.

I appreciate you. Love, Annette


Love yourself enough

To be willing to believe

That you’re lovable

Because then you can

Be the one who loves you more

Than anyone else

For when this happens

You will be forever free

Of other’s control

This allows you to

Live in peace and happiness

And eternal love
