In this moment I wonder if I should get a new job !
How can I remove the limits on my life to allow myself to dream further
How can I find fulfillment in my existence
How can I let my passions grow
How do I learn to forgive, trust, and grow in love again
How do I show more love for myself?
Will 2023 be a better year??!! Today I had a 2nd flat tire within 6 months which required a new tire. This has never happened EVER but
I do try to make a positive spin on things so I acted quickly and it is fixed. Only $$ right!! At the same time my daughter is txting me that she needs to go to the dentist and has had a lot of dental issues. However praise the Lord I found a dental health clinic (sliding scale) 6 mins from her new rehab center just now. I am so happy about this because she will get all that she needs & can walk there and not break my bank!
For whatever reason, I too have had way more flat tires lately than usual. I have no idea why.
The most recent time that it happened, I had just gotten home from a trip with my family, and I had gone out to run two errands. I noticed that the car was driving strangely, and somebody in another car pointed to my tire. I pulled over, saw what had happened, and quickly searched for a place to repair it. The closest spot was about two blocks away, so I drove there not knowing what else I could do. I arrived at 11 a.m. and waited while they fixed my tire.
As I waited, other people came in to get work done, and they were all turned away. I overheard an employee explain that the store was closing after decades in business because they had lost their lease. It was their last day in business, and they were finishing at noon. I was the last customer that they took. If I had come in even 20 minutes later, I wouldn’t have been able to get the tire fixed.
Wow! The good Lord was watching out for you : )
Will I ever feel like myself again? Why don’t I have more energy?
Sad to hear your healing from heart surge is slow Rabbit. Hopefully it will speed up.
Oh, you know, just the little things that crop up from time to time, like, why would I operate from an inefficient mind which is full of things to go wrong, and why wouldn’t I operate from a highly efficient No-mind which is empty of all that chatter. This isn’t my dogma for believing but a working hypothesis for testing, all day and every day. Just little things like that….
Right now, my day and–broadly–my job have very little structure, so I am partly pondering how to use my time. I find that I feel better when I have more of a sense of purpose. I have many responsibilities and relationships to manage but not much structure at the moment. I am wondering how to manage that and my own responses to my situation.
Questions are always swirling around
in my head. Mostly the same old questions.
I guess lately, I’ve been wondering
how I’m going to re-imagine a relationship
with a family member.
Same question as every day…how can I be a better person today ….and most days I fail! Hoping that I do something good and well today.
My biggest question involves a medical issue and my allergic reaction to all medications that are designed to treat it.
That does sound like a big problem Carol. Sure hope they find something you can take. It seems they give us meds to offset the side effects of another med.
What can I do today to set the right tone for the week ahead? How will I be kind to myself today? What new challenges will arise in 2023 and how will I rise to meet them?
How can I get this bad feeling off?
This is an easy one….at this time in my life, it is…..what will happen now?
My husband has an appointment this morning with a neuropsychologist, and there are many questions…is it a brain tumor, or frontal lobe dementia to begin with, and we won’t know that until the MRI results are in, and he has had two days of testing next week.
Lots of questions…..and I know many of you will be sending prayers and caring energy out way, and I thank you in advance…..
One of the quotes I have been keeping in front of me is….it isn’t the circumstance, it is how you respond to the circumstance….or something like that….praying loving kindness has helped tremendously.
I will light a candle for your husband on this site. We all lift each other up on this beautiful site.
Positive thoughts and prayers sent your way : )
Sending love, prayers and hopes for the best possible answer to the question 🙏🏼
Loving Kindness to you and your husband Mary Pat. I heard it said….Do not focus on your circumstances, focus on your capabilities.
Dear Mary Pat, I can’t forget what you posted maybe over 4 or 5 years ago. You have talked about your intense prayers throughout the day, and a special sacred circumstance is when you hear the ambulance sound.
Your kindness to human beings is wonderful. I will pray for you and your husband.
My favorite way of saying it is “Don’t turn a situation into a problem.” It has helped me to respond instead of react to challenging news. Big hug coming your way!
MaryPat, My thoughts and prayers and all things good are coming to you and your husband. I am so sorry that you are facing this challenge. Many Blessings to you.
What surprises will come today? How will I handle them?
What will today unfold?
In this moment the question that arises: Will I set my intentions to experience the day with gratitude, mindfulness, awareness, acceptance, kindness and sobriety? I answer: Yes with all my heart and consciousness.
Love this Joseph.
