Good morning dear 24 friends. It is Friday almost noon and I must admit I have spent most of the morning in bed. Sometimes I crave utter peace and quiet and I have taken the opportunity to immerse myself in that quietness this morning. No guilt about it today,
My self care is slowly starting to return and that has helped me feel a little less down on myself. I also know I am not alone in this. Many people have similar struggles and the honesty here is very comforting.
I am genuinely still very grateful for my sobriety and shudder to think of how life would be if I ever went down that road again. Despite the depression and anxiety I do not feel any pull towards it as I have done in the past. I know that poison has nothing of value to give me any more. I have had more than my quota of drunks and for that I am both grateful and relieved.
24 more please with lots of love

The leaves have started falling from the trees and earlier I was walking my dog and looking at the trees and it struck me that nature is always changing. It never stays the same. Ever. But the leaves don't cling on to the branches, they don't resist the change. They just fall to the ground. And the trees don't look all depressed and sad as they age.... They don't try to go back to looking like young trees, if anything the trees look more magnificent as they age. Nature is so in tune with the ebb and flow of life. It doesn't fight against the changes, it accepts them. No resistance, no drama, just leaves falling to the ground. It struck me that I've been surrounded by nature all my life.... Even in the cities, there's trees.... Yet I've never before regarded nature as a teacher. I do now. The trees were here long before I was and hopefully they'll be here long after I'm gone. Least I can do is learn something from them whilst I'm here. Wishing everyone a wonderful Friday. 24 more for me please xxxx

My thoughts and hopes go out to you Suze!

Been a trying time recently fighting seasonal depression, but happily back for another 24 hours.

Have a good day all!

(((star))) ❤️❤️

I am sorry to hear you are fighting depression now love. s

And thank you all so much.....its my ear and neck and sinuses and it is just really painful and challenging (and very bad tinnitus). I was supposed to go to the doctor and I didnt so it's kind of my own fault at this point. Dumb.

Love to all of you and thinking of you Jojo and wisc and learning from nature is absolutely the truth of life for me too dearest kent.

OK....I will eat and take pain meds and have a hot shower.
