0ea9b84741b26930e6415220c3e6261eWelcome to Tuesday at Ten! The Tuesday blog Link up where you have 1 full week to use the prompt word to your liking!

Whether it be just writing a story behind the prompt word, or being as creative as you wish using photos, poems, art, or graphics – whichever creative way you choose.

You have 1 week to write and link up your blog at the bottom of the page so that others can link up with you. Be sure to visit your “link up” neighbor and spread the joy of connection!

I will choose writers and their writings to be posted on the blog and the Tuesday at Ten Facebook page each week,

Remember  – it’s not about being perfect, it’s about being YOU. Have FUN!

Today’s Prompt word is {CHANGE}

– link up below my writing –


I chose this word because it resonates with me this week!

I am getting ready to make some changes in the way life forces me to live. Yes I saw the way life forces me too because sometimes I feel I don’t have a choice because of the things I go through, but what I realize is, I do have a choice, I can make a change if I really try hard enough.

I go to therapy 4 days a week! I used to be ashamed to say that because I am a person who likes to take care of myselfl, I don’t like to depend on others to help me through, but what I realized especially this year is, going to therapy IS taking care of myself, I am getting healthier and healthier every day from the horrible life I endured as a child.

I am no longer ashamed to say that I go to therapy 4 days a week – ( one of those days being 2 hours) because I AM MAKING a change! I have been in therapy 7 years now, and when I look back at the person I was to the person I am, THAT IS CHANGE!

each day that I heal I see a change, but what i also realize is, sometimes you have to shift those changes and make more changes insdie those changes and that is what I am taking control over.

I had a incident happen to me about 2 years ago that really triggered my healing path and one of the things that my therapist told me was “you can’t change another person, or their actions, you can only change how you react to it and take control over it” .. since that moment I have been making more changes inside the changes and I see a difference.

Sometimes when we make such big changes we need to shift those changes to make more movements… it’s a constant movement and that is what I am fighting for … more change, more movement.

I can’t wait to share with you all the changes I am making for myself …. I am excited and filled with hope.

    Awesome! You know I’m a retired social worker and one of the things that stuck with me alll these long years was: I cannot change a person, but I can change how I respond (react) to them; and when I change that, the other person’s [behavior] is forced to change!
    I love that you’re moving and changing daily. I remember being stuck (and quite frankly I sometimes get stuck, still.) and am relieved that I am no longer stagnant in my past.
    It’s all about moving forward and growing! You’re beautiful and doing such an awesome job.
    Praying with you. Blessings my friend.

      Aww I didn’t know you were a social worker.. that’s awesome! Your right, you can’t change a person unless they want to change and your not responsible for their actions, you can only do what we are called to do, support and be there for others as much as we can.

      Thank you again for your kind kind kind comment .. your a blessing … so glad you and I have connected.
