I am growing in my ability to bring focus to the things that I am grateful for. I look forward to learning from others.
I meant Friday will be my last post, until I pop in again. I mistakenly wrote Friday would be my “next post.” Sorry! 🙁
This is Debbie. I’m writing to touch base; as I said I would. I have some very exciting news. When I was in Arizona, I discovered that there were studio apartments that I could afford; so I do not have to wait for subsidized housing – though I still send those application out.
I am planning to move to Tucson next November. I continue to work on me apartment: sorting, donation, keep, trash. I have boxes set up for each category.
I just read your post, Manda. Would you mind putting the web address for the meditation you wrote about. I’ll write for three days, so that I can also hear how everyone is doing. Friday will be my next post until I check in again.
Meant to send this one. I can’t seem to delete the other one.
Well, I hope I’ve responded to all those who wrote to me, and much love and well wishes for anyone I may have missed. I will be back to visit, occasionally.I have learned a lot here.
My most unbelievable memory is the day I was feeling so angry about living in a state where winter is particularly gray and dreary. Moving requires a lot of waiting for housing, so I often feel trapped.Because of this website and this group, I racked my brain for something to feel good about. I fought with all my might and then it occurred to me that the empty tree limbs and gray sky reminded me of an Ansel Adams photograph. I surprised the **** out of myself. I can’t say it stuck for more than two days, but it was an amazing experience.I just want to say thank you for all the love, support, encouragement, inspiration that I have received here in this group and from the wonderful people behind the scenes.
What else? Well, here is contact info. It feels odd to leave without some sort of opening. If anyone would like to write, please feel free. firstname.lastname@example.org.<3 <3 <3 <3 , Debbie
I am grateful to Trevor for using his computer knowledge to get that poem in the Gratitude Lounge! I am grateful for a wonderful, warm nap today. I a glad that it will be Spring soon.
Ursula, This is a beautiful picture of a beautiful person! Nice to see what you look like! 🙂
Cool Ursula! It’s nice to “see” you again!
P.S. How is Jack? 🙂
Hi Manda, It’s nice to hear your cheerfulness and appreciation for all that your have. I have a question. If you do not want to answer, I understand. I read below that your are having some sort of health problem. I was concerned. Would you tell me what it is? If not, that’s okay – just know that you are in my thoughts and I hope your symptoms will pass soon. 🙂
It’s nice to pick up some inspiration from you on my short pop-in to say hi. Namaste, Debbie
Thanks for your enthusiasm, Anna. Yes, I believe I will finally feel like the real ME. I’m excited about the southwest, general. I will finally be able to see the Grand Canyon!!!
SO MUCH LOVE TO YOU. <3
Yes, Diane, I will be back to visit. 🙂
I am so thrilled, Ursula, that my sharing this brought you so much pleasure. He is so great. Glad you enjoyed!
Hi Ursula, I am thrilled to hear that you like the Roger Houston videos. His readings are so full of enthusiasm for poetry. I love to listen to them. Thank you for your support over the months. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to get to know you. I wish health and wellness for you as you continue on your journey. Love to you.
This is a great picture, Kevin. I want to thank you for all that you’ve shared – photos and wisdom. Your generosity of service to the world, while coping with chronic pain, is something I respect greatly,
Go for it, Aine. Being brave is not being fearless. It is feeling the fear, and doing it anyway. You have my vote. I’m sorry I did not have time to get to know you better. Well wishes for your continued gratitude practice.
Oh Manda – what you have written just touched my heart so deeply. Thank you for all the wonderful things you wrote about me and acknowledged about who I am. I know it is sincere; which makes it mean that much more. It was very healing.
You are VERY special. Sometimes, it had been hard to read about the abundance of things you have to appreciate and your lovely surroundings; while I am living in a place that does not nurture my soul at all.
Despite that and my depression, I came to see clearly your enormous heart, your extra-large ability to be joyful, and your ability to notice all the small detailed beauties in life on a daily basis.
I wish to join you in building my ability to focus on the positive. I know that the “real” me will come blossoming out in the right environment.
If I do get back out there, I will definitely call you. I will keep you in my heart as a reminder of what is possible.
Hi Trevor, I knew you’d be able to get this video on here. Thanks so much. <3 <3
I will definitely keep you all posted on a potential book or display of my poems. I will also check in periodically. You and your wise, kind ways – especially when I was in turmoil -meant/ means a lot to me. <3
So glad you enjoyed it. I just love him! Be well on your journey here and elsewhere, Deborah. <3
