~Life is full of POSSIBILITY! Happy New Year's Eve~

Wow what a journey 2009 has been and one of
those pivotal moments for me has been finding
the Scrapbooking From The Inside Out Forum/kit club
This is the FIRST kit club I have ever found that thinks just like I do.
All the kits are based on a specific emotion.
This month's kit emotion is "POSSIBILITY"
Everyone is VERY nice and they believe it is ok to scrap ANYTHING
just like I do. I love the compassionate attitude that sort of thinking
holds, and is dear to my heart. That scrapping is about what you want to
create/do, and not about rules and regulations! :)

Today I am going to share 2 of the layouts I made with the kit
I made 5, I will post the rest tomorrow
It's hard to explain to someone who has never been abused
just how precious the gift of security can be.
Knowing that I will never ever be hit again by someone who says the love me.
But you my dear, have given me back the feeling that anything is possible.
If I found someone who loves me unconditionally ]
and sees me with eyes I do not understand, then YES!! Anything is possible.
I Love You.
Time To See Journaling
It IS Possible:
To have friends who do not use and abuse you and to expect that.
To be kind to yourself and still be a good person
To stay faithful and surround yourself w/ others who are as well
To stand strong and be gentle at the same time
To respect yourself even after being abused and battered for a lifetime
I am beginning to see that I am repeating the same pattern
of abuse in my friends that I used to have with men in my life.
I have decided if I can break the cycle with men, I can break the cycle
with my friends as well, so for 2010 my goal is to find good
sweet honest friends who care for life and respect others like I do.
Isn't this kit beautiful?
If you have not checked out SFTIO please do.
I stop in there to chat at least once a day.
The girls there are KIND, compassionate and very understanding.
Kindred spirits.

OK I am off to take my sweet boys shopping and
get ready for this amazing New Year full of POSSIBILITY!
~Have a great New Year's Eve~
~Thank you for stopping by~

How empowering to read your words. Here's to those of us that have found our strength in spite of, or perhaps because of our pasts. Keep up the good work and all the best to you in 2010.

I have to clean house with friends once in awhile too as I also fall into old abuse patterns and find myself with friends who make me feel terrible about myself and I find myself having to work hard at being what they want. I don't know why I do this considering I know I am an awesome friend to have. Luckily I know have a group of strong girlfriends who are so protective of me and let me know asap when a friend 'sucks' in their mind and if I don't get rid of them they will tee hee. much love and strength to you in the new year
