Happy Birthday, my darling Mark!

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear" ~ Mark Twain

    The Wizard of Oz | 1939


You're under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger you have no courage.

You are confusing courage with wisdom.

Back where I come from we have men who are called heroes.

Once a year they take their fortitude out of mothballs and parade it down the main street of the city.

And they have no more courage than you have.

But they have one thing that you haven't got:

A medal!

Therefore, for meritorious conduct extraordinary valor, conspicuous bravery against wicked witches I award you the Triple Cross.

You are now a member of the Legion of Courage!

Shucks, folks, I'm speechless!

As for you, my galvanized friend, you want a heart!

March 14 ~

Thursday, March 14, 2013

I don't know how ~ or even if you can ~ keep a particular blog entry private. If I did, I would have done that with this one.

I am, actually, just making this blog so that I have a 'reminder of time' ~ at some point in the future. I used to love making blog entries but I haven't felt 'much' like doing anything lately.

I am doing the things I can, putting one foot in front of the other, trying to be present ~ in all things in my life, lately. As far as SP goes, I am staying within calories and doing 10-15 minutes of exercise daily. I know that 'somewhere' inside myself, I still care and still want to lose weight and get healthy. Although, currently, I feel none of it.

Am I depressed? Does life suck? I honestly don't know ~ beyond the usual 'some things in life always suck'. I just hope some good feelings come back to me soon. Simply 'surviving' really is 'nowhere land'/

    Since this is NOT a private blog I will butt in and say that I'm very sorry you're just getting by to get by right now. That's no fun place to be and I don't miss that feeling in the least! Whatever it is that has you down in the dumps I hope it passes soon.

Maybe some real vitamin D in the form of sunshine would do you some good.

You may not be ready for Kristina & the Waves "Walking on Sunshine" right now, but maybe you can find solace in some of your favorite POSITIVE music. Play something soothing while you sing along and cook yourself a healthy dinner or chop up a fresh, juicy salad.

Kiss the mirror next time you walk by and tell yourself that you are one sexy creature and that you deserve to have an amazing day - this instant!

Keeping up with exercise is a big help, hopefully you can stay motivated enough to keep doing that.

You're in my thoughts and I'm sending all the good vibes I possibly can!!!

    emoticon emoticon Recently I've told a few folks that I need to take a 'time out' from all but the basic everyday living to renew my energy. Can't hurt, time will tell if it helps. Hang in there. Take care of yourself. emoticon

    There is a way to make private journal entries, but I can't remember what it is. Maybe do a search from the Help tab. Life in general is a lot like your description above--no one can stay on top of the mountain all the time, but you know what? Sounds like you are really hanging in there and I bet you will be "back" soon. Do you get SAD or winter doldrums? Another friend has a terrible time in the winter, but for me, I have found that I cycle in and out of these kinds of feelings. Sending you hugs!! Love, Jeannie

Mindful Moment for Wednesday ~

If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have paradise in a few years. ~ Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

    Very thoughtful and thought-provoking! I love the sentiment and will try to keep it in mind each day! Thans for stopping by my blog, too. We're in Las Cruces, NM and I was amazed to see blooming Bradford pear trees and redbuds! Looks like it will be a pretty time to drive through TX! Stay tuned!! LOL. Love, Jeannie
