Hi there cyber family..

It's been a while since I posted. I have actually been away from WA for a month. I had a medical procedure I needed to take care of and I just needed some time off. So now I'm back; but feeling a little disconnected still. So to start getting back in the swing of things and possibly help others too... I came up with a very simple list of what I can and can't do.

I CAN

1. I CAN learn and grow

2. I CAN endure

3. I CAN persevere

4. I CAN change

5. I CAN overcome


I CAN'T

1. I CAN'T remain static (must grow)

2. I CAN'T keep doing something that's not working.

3. I CAN'T change others (only myself)

4. I CAN'T despair

5. I CAN'T GIVE UP!!

These are very simplistic; but it's good to remind ourselves about simple things. See if you can come up with your own list. It helps me to become more centered to know what I can do and can't (or maybe what I won't) do.

Have a wonderful day!

Jeannie

Very powerful, M'lady!

One thing I would add for myself in the "can't" department:

I can't bring back yesterday.

All the best with working with you "can" list!

I am easily confused, Queen Veronica! I’m not sure what that means unless you meant yesterday instead of tomorrow? I was going for five each but there are many more and of course it would vary from person to person. Good to talk to you. :) xxoo

Ooops...I meant "yesterday". I just made the correction.

Okay. I thought maybe there was a hidden meaning I wasn’t understanding. Lol.

Perhaps my subconscious was thinking about tomorrow, lol.

You may think about tomorrow; but you can only live in today. Lol.

Hi Vera. Thanks for the flowers. I missed you. How are you?I am better; but need to make some changes to diet and exercise to reduce inflammation.

That is beautiful, thanks. You will cope with this. Your knees, I guess? Or, whatever it is, God is on your side. Get better.
I am mostly OK. Don't like this season. But it's our life, and we must live it with joy... :))

When given the choice of being either positive or negative why wouldn’t we all choose positive, right? :)

Yes; but some people don’t see it that way.
