Hi, my name is Pam Cybulski and I am 49 years old and a mother of three. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 27 years!!!! I start my days reading my daily quotes. The gift that Jonathan brings to all is such a blessing. It is wonderful to be able to live by and share with others his beautiful messages. It is an immeasurable kindness that he gives and shares with others. He has made me laugh, cry, pray, believe, and live a little better each day. Thank you.

Horses. I enjoy the daily inspirational and motivational quotes because it makes my outlook on life positive. If I'm having a bad day it helps me realize that it's only a small part of the amazing life that I have. I'm grateful for all that we've achieved and appreciative that I wasn't paralyzed in a car accident in l997. Each day is a gift from god and reading your quotes is the icing on the top!!!!!:)"

I am Elle Elaine on the www. I married at age 17 to my husband of 33 years. We have 5 children & 14 grands.
I am at a dangerous place in my life. Several major events including losing our home 3 times to hurricanes (completely to the flooding of Ike) & turning 50 began a domino effect better described as my "perfect storm".
I visit this site for words of encouragement as I journey through the darkness of crisis, depression & PTSD. I find the sight too "New Age" to share on my public pages but I filter out what helps me and leave the rest.
I am currently working on "what I want my future to look like". (an exercise from my wonderful therapist). It took me months but I now have 2:
"I don't want to die" & "it is what it is". The power of the first is obvious. The second is based on years of "morphing" into whatever I needed to be in order to be loved and accepted. This mindset has made "the true me" almost impossible to discern. I am learning to say, "this is where I am, or how I feel and it is what it is".
Deeply ingrained in all my thought processes is the belief that I am "bad" while everyone else is "good". I have not been convinced otherwise but am at the discovery stage where I find daily almost moment by moment how deeply rooted this false belief is.
My journey is a lonely one. Although surrounded by a strong support system, the struggles I face are heavy, confusing & overwhelming to those who love me. I am reaching out for like minded "strugglers" to whom I can share with & learn from.
Believing for better tomorrows, Elle
