My heart is in the right place - I know what I believe, but I'm just not working hard enough on it. And therefore, I'm struggling. I guess 'struggling' is a start. December 22, 2010 6:44:00 PM PST
Carol said... That's OK Chloe. I feel the same way. I'm working on a plan for the New Year. I want to make it a good/better one. I'm going to write down what I want to see happen in the new year. Oprah insists that writing has power. It has worked for me in the past. One big thing is to stop worrying about the "what ifs". December 22, 2010 6:50:00 PM PST
That was quick thinking Chloe. Haven't seen over 200 in a long time. It just used to not take a month to get there.
Writing definitely has power Carol.I don't watch Oprah anymore, but she said her Journal literally changed her life. I know we can do it too. First thing I want to do is convince you that 60 isn't old, and the I want to convince Jan that 70 isn't old.We all need to get back on a more hope path.
... we can do our 'writing' right here at the Swamp if we want to. That way we can help ourselves, and help each other at the same time.
Well Chloe we missed the self help column you used to often write. Kept us in line.
All my typos are starting to make me look illiterate. Hope you guys are filling in the errors for me. My two main problems are that my n key (and a couple others) are sticking (too much eating crumbs over my key board) and my other main problem is getting in a hurry and (as always when typing) leaving off the ends of my words. That and repeating myself.Like I said, I've been scattered (more than usual) lately.
... ha - you mean 'kept me in line'. Just hate to sound preachy.
Well, I'm burned out for the day.... see you all tomorrow. Glad you sound like you've got things under control, Carol. Now if I can just do the same thing....nite.
I have the next four days off. I used to be ecstatic when I had 4 whole days off in a row. Y'all probably remember those days. I haven't been looking forward to these but today I'm starting to feel a little happy. Let's see....I'm trading spending time with 30-40 bad boys and some bad girls to spending time with one 82 year old bad boy. I guess it's a wash.
"I guess it's a wash."... it's a start. I guess the bad boys just need you Carol. Maybe it's your mission here."A friend is one before whom I may think aloud." Ralph Waldo EmersonThanks Carol.
"Maybe it's your mission here".Please don't tell me that. Maybe it's just one of those life classes we each have to take and I just have to repeat the class cuz I keep failing it.
I do believe that when we keep confronting the same unpleasant experiences in life, it is because there is something we need to learn from it. Once we figure that out, respond in the correct ways, that lesson will go away. One of my big lessons is to learn the proper way to deal with my always feeling the need to rescue. I've never been very good in the rescuing department, I've done a lot of whinning about it but I still felt the need to do it and I worried about it all the time.
Coreen, I want some cats in your Christmas pics so if you don't already have some, put some bows on the cats and get snapping. You may have to chase them around the room but Solar would like some pics of you doing that also.
I do have some raindeer ears that I could put on Maggie but they are in the closet in my roommates house. I just nremembered that I had an old pic from 2004 where I took a pic of me and Maggie in her raindeer ears. I think I must have also had a touch of Christmas cheer that night. I look snockered.Maggie and me Christmas 2004
I think that was Maggie's first Christmas. May have been her second.
