A positive way to beat a Blue Monday

This Life Map is a dialogue or a record of my achievements that I so easily forget and deny. It is something that sums up my life over the years in the right light, not with the negativism and false humility that would keep me silent and feeling useless, but with the truth of the real facts upon which I wish to build to secure a rewarding future. I hope that in the telling of my life achievements it will encourage you to do the same. You have got this far- WELL DONE- so read on and discover how you too can achieve goals! No more Blue Mondays for me!

Childhood Years

Despite some prejudices and negativity from role models in some areas, I had a good childhood, growing up with my parents and three sisters.

My Early Years In S.England

I learned to share and socialize in a large family

To be part of a wider church family

To know that I was loved

To sing and play the guitar

Achievements Of Teenage Years

These years can seem like a time of struggles, like a butterfly struggling to emerge from it's cocoon, but for me they were also very exciting.

Life Maps By Other People

This Is A RocketMoms About Me

Summer Session: Lens Challenge #1:

This page was created as part of the challenge "About Me." Whilst thinking what I would like to write about me, I realised that it needed to be a map of where I have come from and where I am going. I needed to be honest and yet positive. In writing this, it has been therapeutic in reminding me of my many blessings and achievements even though I don't pretend to not have made mistakes along the way. Indeed, my successes have been made out of pain as well as blessing, but it's a journey, for which this map is something to help me keep going and not get lost along the way.

The Guestbook- An accomplishment in the wheel of social networking - I love to read your comments!

      When caught up in everyday life, it's very easy to forget the accomplishments of the past. We all need reminders. This is very motivating. :)
