Do It, Even If You Don't "Feel" Like It

Last Update: December 05, 2021

Hello, WA Family!

I've been in a bit of an emotional storm, and a bit under the weather.

Last night, we had a Holiday celebration at my "Group in the Country!"

Though, not feeling like being sociable, I'd made a commitment.

My pals were on board with pies made by my BFF, Suzanne. Carol, our adopted Mom, of 84 years young, and Heidi, also ready to roll.

Though, I could easily have stayed inside, lacking energy due to sleep deprivation with congestion, I took my DayQuil, and headed out anyway!

I'm so happy I did! ... God's paintbrush Raising my up, with all the beauty that surrounds me. Gratitude!
Our Bonfire site! Stone Henge of Texas

My Recovery groups are another Family. Having known some of these folks for over 15 years, they are my brothers and sisters!
Every year, we add more folks, as we grow and continue in service others.

"There are no strangers in recovery, just friends, we have yet to meet!"


WA is very much the same.

We come together to help each other, every day! Through good times and trials, we are there to support, brothers and sisters, on our personal journeys!

Though we haven't physically met, in many cases, we share a unique bond.

Our virtual family is ever growing! What a blessing!


While typing away, though I didn't really "Feel" like it, I have Celtic Women playing in the background. Listening has given me strength and changed my attitude.

Sometimes, we need to make an extra effort to get out of our funk. Choose happiness!


Making this post, shorter than usual, but its'all I could muster for today, I thought it fitting to end with this song...

"You Raise Me Up"- Celtic Women

"When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary

When troubles come and my heart burdened be

Then, I am still and wait here in the silence

Until you come and sit awhile with me."

"You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas

I am strong when I am on your shoulders

You raise me up to more then I can."


Signing off for this evening, and heading to see what's happening in Your World!


This post also marks a milestone! 100 posts at Wealthy Affiliate!

Good night, All and God Bless!

Barb

It's a beautiful place, the stone hedge, and it sounds like you had a great time, and I love the song too. Definitely, the WA community helps me a lot, and I do feel that we share a unique bond. Yes, I need some extra push sometimes to get some excuses away.....

Good morning Barbara from my little office in the sky. I love your little stone hegde and yes, it is beautiful there.

And is it not true that we do not want to leave our little piece of paradise, aka home, and go do something yet every time we do we are so glad we did. Yet, when we were teenagers you could not keep us home!! Ah, always find something amusing I do.

Well, back to my morning routine.

See ya next time and thanks for the food for thought blog.

Scott.

No kidding, Scott!
Those were the days my friend!
We can get too comfortable, and inertia needs strong motivation to eject me!
Since I'm retired, I only need to go, when I commit, or I'd stay home even more! LOL
I do enjoy my company but really!
Trying to listen to a training with low volume, so must see if it's better with my cell...
Later, Scott! Hope you had a wonderful today!

I have fun every day when I work the ice rink here in San Francisco. I am my own boss and create my own schedule, for the most part, I have my kitchen at work and puters, guitars, and my mobile office in the sky, AKA my hotel room. And once I got everything working as it should a rhythm gets created and it is awesome.

A great read Barbara. Yes, sometimes we just have to push on through those downers and hope that those around will support us.
I live near the REAL Stonehenge and looking at your collection of stonebuds I can tell you that if you keep them well watered and warm they will blossom into a beautiful Stonehenge all of your own. Good luck and take care of yourself.

I believe I was Celtic perhaps in another lifetime, as it's been such an influence in my life.
I need to stay around for a few more years, so I can actually visit, Dave.
I've been to London, but nowhere else in the British Isle.
I love to travel, and this is on my dream board, Dave!
Someday!

You need to be up on the Scottish islands for Celtic history.
The Isle of Lewis where one of my son's lives is full of history.
Good luck.
Dave.
