Cause sometimes life is hard... and it sucks and we're not ok.
How are you?
I'm OK. I also am wearing a luchador mask and $5 poncho (so maybe I'm not OK)
Touch wood, let me tell you...never felt so LIVELY ....oh yes I am still living ....LOL!!!!
I am OK....how are you Beth ? How life is treating you so far?
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!
Still fighting the good fight. I see!
'Fraid I have given up temporarily.
Nothing to be done.
Don't give up Will! Maybe a new focus? What do you love that you've never pursued?
Sorry Beth, you are doing heroic work here but I have hit that 'if I have to write one word, I will kill the cats, the wife and then myself...' sort of point.
I often get that these kinds of horrors after a holiday. Give me a couple of weeks...
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.
I´m kicking alive. Thanks God for that and my healthy lifestyle.
I'm not okay
But I am, if I measure Okay by way others I know, measure me!
My best wishes go out to all who feel that their life is more negative than positive...
I'm recently unemployed, but still OK. It actually has made me realize some of the things I would rather be doing than the daily grind. I need a cape and luchador mask myself.
This thread made me think of the following:
Spar-tu-cuS! That was so awesome! Thank you for sharing that. I'd never heard of Shane Koyczan before, but what an amazing piece of work.
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.
Shane Koyczan is awesome and truly talented. The only downside about him is that he makes me feel really inadequate with my own writing.
Yeah, but you have the cape and the mask and he's just got a pencil so...
Beth, you really have a knack for making a luchadore feel good about himself! Then again you are feeding into my delusions, so maybe it is not a good thing. But oh well.
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.
Sorry you're experiencing an omelette deprivation day. Here. I've made you a candy omelette to cheer you up.
Mmmm. Chocolate. Professor Lupin says it will help.
He works for Hogwarts, or should I say worked? That was before the full moon transformed him into a werewolf.
Yes, but can you make it with the tequila already in it to save time? or would that just be too gross?
Ummm, if you cooked the tequila you would burn off the alcohol. Think Christin, think!
Not if your just preparing an omelet, it takes several hours of cooking tequila to burn off most of it, but just in cooking an omelet, 80-90% will remain. Think, Beth, think.
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.
Yep, hills and valleys. No one unscathed. Excellent words of wisdom Beth37. We just have to do the best we can. :-)
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.

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.
There is so much to experience in this beautiful life. But biochemistry prevents us. Fed up with that.

Is it ok to have a crush on someone, even if you are happily married?I was telling this to my sister the other day, that it's normal to have crushes on people throughout our lives, even if we are happily married. It's ok to have a crush, but it doesn't mean you have to ACT on it. Am I right?
