365 Days of Joy and Laughter


What a great idea!!


365 Days of Gratitude


Today, Tuesday, August 22, 2017, I am grateful for two things today, LOL First, I am retaking a class at SLU that I flunked this past Spring Term. Because of my mental illness issues, my concentration has been almost nonexistent. As we went through the course, I got more and more overwhelmed but I thought I could manage it myself. Well, I couldn't and I got an "F". If I had withdrawn from the class, which I could have, it would have been the third class I have withdrawn from since I began my classes at SLU. That alone made me want to not give up and see the class through the end.

All throughout the summer, I tackled any and all problems and obstacles as they crossed my mind. Some, I didn't realize that they were problems until I realized that, hey wait, that's a problem I want to be rid of. Believe me when I say that I work very hard on processing and getting rid of any garbage that crosses my mind. I worked on that on a daily basis.

So, classes have started up for the Fall Semester and here I am retaking the class with the same professor I had last Spring Term.  I have read through the assignments and I had no difficulty at all. Nothing, none ZILCH!! I actually retained what I read and let me tell you what: I about somersaulted across my living room, LOL So, for me to be grateful for being able to read, comprehend and retain what I read like I used to when I was in school as a child and young adult is a HUGE accomplishment. HUGE as in HUMONGOUS!!!

Ok, the second thing I am grateful for is I bought a Vincent Price collection of four films he made that I found on eBay. I am slowly collecting all of the Vincent Price movies I can get my hands on, so I am delighted to be watching that today.

What are you grateful for today? I would LOVE to hear ALL about it!!

Today, Monday, August 21, 2017, I am grateful for the astonishing Eclipse my country had the privilege to witness. It amazes me how folks are blown away by marvels of science, but everything we do every day of our lives are also marvels of science. Everything we do and experience are miracles. Breathing, eating, waking up, going to sleep and what tasks our bodies accomplish while we are sleeping...I could easily go on forever. Sight, taste, feelings, touch.....

Today, Sunday, August 20, 2017, I am grateful for going to bed Friday night realizing that I hadn't felt the need to eat dinner. That is TOTALLY New for me! I NEVER miss meals. I have noticed some other changes in my appetite, such as being able to go longer between meals easily. I feel hunger but not the emotional need to stuff myself.

What cha doing?




365 Days of Gratitude



Today, Thursday, August 17, 2017, I am grateful for the results I am experiencing from my hard work on resolving the issues that fuel my mental and physical health problems. I have been working on improving them for several years on a regular basis.

For the past few days, I have been getting to bed very early and getting up early which I love. I feel much more productive this way. This morning, I was not only up early, I have enough energy to be showered and dressed by 9 AM.

That, for me, is HUGE!!! I have struggled with such low energy for well over a decade and for me to be able to say that I was up, showered and dressed by 9 AM makes me want to bounce off of every wall in my apartment and do somersaults up and down my street, LOLOL

WOW! So can I!!



365 Days of Gratitude


Today, Saturday, August 12, 2017, I am grateful for two things today. First, I am grateful that I am not in a panic about my school loan money. If I don't see the money in my account, I panic about how do I update my computer and buy my textbooks? I worked on this issue yesterday afternoon because it has bothered me so much. As a result, I am not in a much of a panic as I have been in previous semesters. I am a little anxious but ok enough that I can wait for it to show up. I am VERY grateful for that!!

Second, I have realized what my writing goal and purpose is where I can best use my skills and talents to benefit others. My focus will be on helping others heal their damaged self-esteem as it is the root of all emotional problems that rule our lives. And realizing that has put a great big smile on my face! No drink or drug ever came close to doing that for me.

Today, Friday, August 11, 2017, I am grateful for two gaming communities I belong to. One is Township and the other is a website called Big Fish Games. I have played Hidden Object Games on Big Fish Games for almost 10 years now and have been playing Township for a year and a half now. I have had the pleasure to meet some folks who have become friends and my life is richer because of them!

A Great Couple Destination



365 Days of Gratitude


Today, Tuesday, August 8, 2017, I am grateful for waking up laughing! I had the funniest dream. I dreamed that I was in a restaurant with girlfriends and I came back to the table and sat down at the wrong table, LOL I remember looking at my friends and I couldn't understand why they seemed all so far away. I realized that I was sitting at the wrong table but who was the lady sitting in my chair? 
So, I got up and approached her but she wouldn't even look at me. I got the impression that if she stood up, she'd be embarrassed because she sat at the wrong table too. I woke up then, LOLOL
