I have been tagged by Eve's Lungs.
So, here are the rules:
Rule 1: Without changing the first word, after each letter of the alphabet, write a sentence that captures you/your essence.
Rule 2: Tag as many people as you want, but do tag at least one. This is an eye opening experience and can express to those who read it, things about you that they did not really understand before.
Rule 3: List who you are tagging.
So here goes...
*A* Accept the things you can't change and work on the ones you can; no one is perfect.
*B* Break the cycle of self-criticism; learn to love yourself.
*C* Create a loving environment so the kids can come to you for support and a "listening" ear.
*D* Decide to follow your heart more.
*E* Explore other options when you have to give up something, like driving.
*F* Forgive and try to forget.
*G* Grow as you age, never stop learning.
*H* Hope for a cure for Usher Syndrome and all other diseases, too. Don't givre up.
*I* Ignore naysayers-if you believe it, you can achieve it.
*J* Journey into life and continue to learn and grow.
*K* Know all that is possible for you to learn and teach it to others
*L* Love yourself first because if you take care of yourself, you show you want to be there for your family and friends
*M* Manage to find the right balance-time with family, housework, homework, and "me time".
*N* Notice small details because sometimes it's the small things that count.
*O* Open your heart and don't be afraid to try new things.
*P* Play because a family that plays together, stays together.
*Q* Question when you don't hear everything the first time. Sometimes I just pretend to understand and get caught.
*R* Relax whenever you can. When will the next chance be?
*S* Share your memories and thoughts.
*T* Try to be all that you can be.
*U* Use tact to avoid hurting other people's feelings.
*V* Value the things you do have.
*W* Work on the impulse to snap at others when you are frustrated. It's not their fault.
*X* Xerox your memories and file them; then page through them when you need to.
*Y * Yield to others; look at both sides of the story, not just your own.
*Z* Zoom into the future without letting anything hold you back.
Okay. I was supposed to tag at least one person, but I am going to break the rules. If you want to tag yourself, be my guest.
