  • January 22nd poem of the day

    Hi all,

    I have just gotten home from the hospital once again. They believe that I might have Crohn's disease. I am in complete shock right now. I already have the IC and fibro. I don't know how much more I can take right now. I read this and it gave me some comfort. I hope it does the same for all of you.

    Keep Believing in Yourself

    There may be days
    when you get up in the morning
    and things aren't the way
    you had hoped they would be.

    That's when you have to
    tell yourself that things will get better.
    There are times when people
    disappoint you and let you down,

    but those are the times
    when you must remind yourself
    to trust your own judgments and opinions,
    to keep your life focused on believing in yourself

    and all that you are capable of.
    There will be challenges to face
    and changes to make in your life,
    and it is up to you to accept them.

    Constantly keep yourself headed
    in the right direction for you.
    It may not be easy at times,
    but in those times of struggle

    you will find a stronger sense of who you are,
    So when the days come that are filled
    with frustration and unexpected responsibilities,
    remember to believe in yourself

    and all you want your life to be,
    because the challenges and changes will only help you to find the goals that you know are meant to come true for you.

        Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".
