I was reading Guideposts Magazine this week. They have a section called "The Up Side, Quotes from Today's Positive Thinkers". I liked the quote form Robert Redford...
"The way I deal with arthritis is to keep moving. As long as you can play hard tennis, as long as you can ski or ride a horse---all kinds of things can come your way. As long as you can, do it"
His challenge seems to be his arthritis. Mine is the different. Mine is a looming unwanted and unnecessary divorce. Both painful in their own way. Well I took Roberts advice and decided to do it. I went and heard old friends sing at an Irish Pub last night after work. Today I got up and went to a local Zumba class. I came home and made banana bread and watched a movie. This weekend I am going to church and to a local comedy event. Sometimes it is hard to go through the motions of what used to bring me joy but I am trying.
I don't know the pain of your situation. I do suggest even in your pain that you reach out to friends. Get out and do something fun. Enjoy the world you find yourself in.
Peace and Blessings
