Sept 30th .. ramblings of an empath ..

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

taking a step back .. self evaluate morning ..

holy He$$ .. the world is a mess ..

people are from one extreme to the next ..

time for a lose the technology period .. can I do no Face Book for the month of Oct .. yes I think I can ..
this morning I was paying attention to the barrage of messages each post delivered ..
from God based hopeful inspiring messages ..
to doom and gloom of police enforcement in Australia ..
to a joke ..
a recipe ..
a birthday ..
an obituary ..
the debate .. oh dear Lord the debate ..
I've threatened myself for weeks now to cut it off .. the news went by the wayside many years ago ..
now its time to do some more pruning .. purging and tossing ..

we are not victims .. we have choice
thoughts do become things ..

We are free to stand in the glow of self-responsibility.
today this last day of Sept 2020 ..

I will
Set a boundary!
Challenge myself!

Plan October in advance .. lots to do if I'm going to have moms house sold and occupied by Christmas eve ..

Inventory food and supplies .. my "gut" tells me to get prepared

And learn to enjoy what's good... create good .. create laughter and love where I can ..

Today I will refuse to think, talk, speak, or act like a victim. Instead, I will joyfully claim responsibility for myself and focus on what's good and right in my life.

so much good ..

smile dear friends ..

PS .. rest in peace Mac Davis .. I truly loved your music ..

    Feelings are the same...less facebook, less computer time, focus on preparing, staying away from negativity.
    Hope you fill your October with many beautiful moments. emoticon

    Oh no, did Mac Davis die too? Right after Helen Reddy...two of my favorites back in the day.

    Many times I try to give up FB but between phone calls during my work day, it helps to pass the time. Sometimes though...it's too much negativity. I have blocked people who like to rant about politics, it's not like their posts will change my mind about anything.

    You sound like you have your priorities straight for October...good for you! Stay positive, share love, focus on the good stuff and do the best you can!

    I am glad I was never on face book, and am cutting my computer time, I am on spark less and less but I am still keeping up with my healthy goals. Tired of all the bullying. Lots of fun times in the garden and with my pets and finding new hobbies. Have a great day emoticon I loved Mac Davis and I just heard about Helen Reddy, so sad.
