Words of wisdom and encouragement...."As long as you can, do it"

It has been a tough 5 weeks.  I have not been myself since my husband decided to leave me.  Awful.
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"
Robert Redford
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
Kathy
