Obo- Welcome back. I get crippling depression. I've been down that road many a times. Early on 2.5 years ago, I thought meds would cure all my woes. They can be quite effective for some. For me, my depression is a product of inactivity and previously holding onto things in my past. Through therapy, step work, Buddhism and learning to live a balanced life I've found balance. What used to eat me up inside has galvanized my recovery and present state. I often listen to this song, because it sums up my recovery and really approach to life these days.

Your heart is a muscle the size of your fist,
Keep on loving. Keep on fighting.
And hold on, hold on,
Hold on for your life.

Sorry for the absence guys. Things are all good my front. I start online classes tomorrow. It's been a great weekend. Cooked for friends to rave reviews; it's nice to have a bit of culinary skill under my belt. My team won and then I got to see Bill Burr(a comedian) to close my Saturday.

Today, I'm going to meditate(seriously been too long), hit my Sunday meeting, and probably workout. 12 days from a big milestone, but one day at a time as they say.

Great to hear you're doing so well, Noolan. 12 days until a big milestone - sounds intriguing!

Tops, I hope Mathew decides to keep his distance, that sounds a bit scary. Which direction would you suggest we all blow in? I hope all is well and there's no need for evacuations.

I met with the meditation group leader today, the sessions are based on Eckhart Tolle's teachings, and sound just the thing for me. I'm hoping to attend my first one on Wednesday, if I can swing my work schedule. It'll be an hour's drive away, but I think it will be worth going.

Izzy, when's the move?

I hope Mathew steers clear too TS.....be safe .

I'm not doing so well & feeling discouraged with myself. I don't feel I have anything to offer here right now so am stepping away for awhile but am OK & commited to finding my way in sobriety. I will be back & didn't want to leave you all wondering. You are my inspiration!

Mariah,

Don't be discouraged, you've been through a lot of changes over the past 12 months, you're bound to need a bit of plateau time. What is it that you feel discouraged about?

Hope you're not away for long, I'll miss you <3

Hi All,

Still raining here, something like a 200 year record broken. Biblical proportions they say!

Bleak.

Trying not to follow thoughts and get moving in a direction.

Bought a 7,2 surfboard yesterday with bag.

Online 2nd hand, but good board.....

Hey Mariah, support from me.

Thanks again for the support you guys, it's good to have, good to belong....
😀

,...sweet find on the new board Obo !
How far do you live from the surf ?

Izzy,...Mathew is still south of Cuba, but forecast to shift a bit west compared to yesterday. Hopefully it will skirt east of us here and stay offshore around Sat. night ,.....give or take 24 hours.
The things are notoriously unpredictable churning over open water .


I'll tow the skiff inland midweek if things look bleak then . Probably after work at 2am to avoid traffic. No good comes from doomsday scenarios this far away .

Check back with us when you can Mariah

"You're getting that much rain, you need a surf board Obo?"


Matthew sounds very unpredictable, hope it peters out before it does any damage anywhere. Stay safe Tops.

Off to work now, trying to stay "present" and not worry too much about the day. It must be wonderful to be able to really enjoy your job, rather than just work for the money. I know it's a good thing to have challenges in your life, but sometimes I'd like to give my brain a rest.

Hope everyone's week is going well

Ugh ... I can't get to sleep. Sore from physical therapy, they should call it physical torture.

Tops 90 minutes, but an easy drive, no lights, traffic etc...

Thanks Izzy.

Up, nearly, it's very wet and it's October. Say what you like about global warming.

I love a good storm! Hope you are all safe over there.

Hi Freein!

Try and hit the ocean in the next 2 days...
