I am but a familiar face, who throughout the past years has been through tough times just like everyone else.  I have found recently that growing up is a process.  In reflecting the past few weeks I found that I needed an attitude adjustment and in these times I have really seen big changes in myself and I want to share them with the world.

Truth is a big part of my life.  Not always is the truth the easiest thing to hear or say but it often needs to be said/heard for accountability purposes.  I know that nobody is perfect, I know I am far from it. But I hope that everyone joins me in embracing this new perspective on life and existance.

I learned that all things are possible and all I need is a little bit of faith, in myself and what I am doing, and the will to persevere and I can accomplish anything.

I also learned that its not good to whisper, and if you only speak well of others, then there is no need to whisper. I agree with this wholeheartedly. I have spent so much of my young life participating in needless hatred and childish drama and the time is now to change that behavior and become the person that I truly am. I am not a person of deep hatred, I am kind and adaptive.

I have returned to Pip with a skip in my step and a new attitude. I hope that my true colors shine brightly and that everyone can welcome the person that I truly am and look beyong my childish games of the past.

With abundant love,
Kellie Cantrell

Kelly if you have indeed learned these truths at this early age than you have indeed grown faster than many others I know. Truth is all. Life is all; putting others before self makes for a much more interesting life. Good luck to you and keep on in this path it will lead you to happiness. sincerely, martyjo

Martyjo,

In the past I was quick to rush into everything and do things without thinking. I spent a good two weeks soul searching and talking to people near and dear to me, I found where my faults were and I took a lot of time working on these faults.  I know that I have in the past been a quite unattractive person to be around and I really thought I was a good person, when clearly I wasn't. I was blinded by childish things that I needed to work through to overcome. It's been a long process and I really hope people can tell that I am a more caring and responsible person as well as respectful and of good taste and character.

Thank You for the kind insight.

Two weeks soul searching doesn't sound like a very long time to me. SO I would hope that you continue to look within yourself and stop blaming others for how your life is.

It is nice to see this realization from you, but  be careful to not fool yourself... if I can recall you have apologized and  said you have changed several times before.

You really should continue on this course  and as the saying goes, actions speak louder than  words.

I wish you the best and  hope that  each day you feel better about yourself and others, and continue to grow and learn to enjoy the positive things in life.

sincere hugs,
Maureen

Good Morning Maureen,

Yes I agree, actions do speak louder than words. I know two weeks doesn't seem like a great deal of time, but I also have a full future to continue on to better myself and grow. I am still young enough learn hard lessons and grow to be a better person. I can honestly say I really like what I see this new attitude is bringing. I am more confident and I just feel good about who I am and I don't dwell on the things that aren't important as much. I know I have a long journey ahead of me, and I am ready to embrace the challenges ahead.

I applaud you, Kellie and am glad to see that you know that growth is an "ever" and "always" happening in all lives, not just the young. So keep up the positive attitude and remember to take care of yourself.

Thank You Maureen! I helps having the support that provides me with the wisdom to grow. Sometimes truth hurts but the ones that can risk life and limb to put truth out there and really make one think about their actions, those people really make the world go round. I appreciate that you are telling me how it is.

Learning from ones own mistakes is always positive, but learning from the mistakes of others before you make them yourself... now that is a virtue.. and I hope to gain this virtue in my life because I don't want to have many regrets.

Thanks a billion,
Kel

Kellie,
Turns out we never stop learning. And all of us learn in increments - small ones. Even at that we have to learn it, often, over and over. If not the same lesson then variations of the same lesson.

There is considerable risk to public proclomations. I was recently taught that some of us find our credibility to be like a bank account. Our account might be low enough that nobody will take a check. We have to live on cash.

Do not despair. If our change is real time is our ally. If not... So don't consider people cynical. Rather, consider that all they have is history and experience. If in time things change so does the history and the perspective.

It turns out that in the process you get a chance to learn patience. And we only learn that when it is tested. You can't expect God to give you patience quickly. Keep your chin up and know that there is much opportunity for friendship in this place. But life is still life. There are many paths and I recommend that if your path comes to a fork that you take it.

Peace.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Welcome home, Kellie.  Growing up is, indeed, a most difficult process.  Here's a tip.  It never ends.
