Lively is definitely good. It depends on what day you ask me... Today, Im hanging in there I believe the expression goes. The good thing about a new day is that it isn't the day before. Onward and forward!
It's really very nice of you to ask Beth - very considerate. I am OK, thanks, despite having one of the most stressful years of my life so far. If I can survive that I can survive anything. Everything always works out in the end. Hope you're doing OK too.
Last night I had a terrible night. Spent several hours at the doctors with my daughter. Woke up this morning to making cheese & ham omeletes for the family. It's a great new day! My daughter doesn't have childhood diabetes so all is wonderful.
Have you ever had one of those days where you know you are blessed by all things good in your life, yet you find yourself still a bit bored or uninspired? Today is kind of one of those "meh" days for me. In the overall sense of things, I'm quite content, but it's been awhile since I've challenged myself to do something new and I feel a bit overwhelmed by my current workload this month.
Yes, I definitely know those days. I call those "drinking days" I also call stressful days, lonely days, busy days, challenging days and fun days, "drinking days." I have to be very careful. I have a lot of issues... and now on top of it all, I want an omelet... which I used to eat with tequila.
Oh my word... you're one of those ppl. Well I don't have any room to talk. I watched World War Z last night (hossum!) and Im about to watch the new Star Trek one right now. Im a nerd, Im just not a Harry Potter nerd.
Okay? Is anyone ever okay? Maybe those select few who have it all together or have that dadgum positive attitude no matter what. I'm burned out and depressed, as WryLit mentioned, but I keep on keeping on, trying to get to some other plateau of okay . . . so maybe I AM okay. Hmmm . . . .
Maybe it's just like ps said earlier... it's just hills and valleys. I remember when someone close to me shared that they had been molested as a child thinking, "none of us are making it out of this unscathed." That's the way of life... making the best of it is all we can do sometimes, but if we didn't... we'd be in serious trouble.
Without numbing up... We can't experience life or grow in character anesthetized. My husband is a part of several 12 step groups and he's always saying God uses others... community to help us find strength and heal. So here we are here today. Our own little community.
"I'm OK; You're Ok" ~Wayne Dwyer~ It's those pesky few billion whiners who think just because they don't have clean drinking water and enough to eat that the rest of us should feel empathy and help them that keep crossing my mind and ruining the 'Cake' of a life I lead....we should all be a bit grateful every day,for the little we have is considered riches in many other places...
That's a good point. I am one of those ppl who think, when life gets me down, that I don't have a right to feel down b/c there are so many ppl suffering. It causes me to not allow myself to actually acknowledge my feelings... which isn't a great idea. Somehow, we have to acknowledge pain without living in it... whilst being grateful at all times. I spose there is a balance.
If it's ok in Christianity to have sex before marriage, ok to live with someone without marriage (like boyfriend or girlfriend), ok to have anal sex with the same gender or the other gender, ok for the brother to sleep...
