"I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and his mourners.~ Isaiah 57: 18

It can be very difficult when you go through tough times to stay positive and to take care of ourselves properly.

The first step is always a difficult one, but you must focus on the end result. Do not focus on where you are, focus on where you want to be.
