    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    I really fell into Perfectionism and People Pleasing as a child, as a way to cope with my family situation.
    My recently-deceased brother had fallen increasingly into Isolation especially (and increasing Low Self-Esteem as well), which impaired his mental health considerably.
    Anyhow, interesting list from someone who was just interviewed on the “Bubble Hour” podcast.

    I am afraid of falling too, after three knee surgeries on the same injured knee, and surgery on a severely torn rotator cuff after two injuries to it; so I just don’t feel like taking unnecessary risks anymore as I head into old age.

    Are you anxious to retire, Jude? Or do you derive enough satisfaction from your job and still have enough stamina to try to keep going, even until full retirement at age 66? That’s a factor to consider too. You work a pretty physical and also emotionally draining job though, so I can see where you might be worn out from it.

    Another day of sobriety please!

    Friday quote:

    “People think intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you can stand in front of them and their response is “you’re safe with me” -that’s intimacy.”

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Great quote @Slo! What a great way to describe intimacy! I have that feeling with my counselor. I have shared with him so many things, some pretty bad, yet he remains nonjudgmental. I really like him as a person, and he is helping me alot.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words and support regarding Homer. I have been thinking this over for the last couple of months, and it is a tough decision to make. I plan on retiring, but I can still work. I just can't earn over a certain amount of money while doing so. It isn't just the cost of keeping Homer that's the catalyst for my decision. I'm so worried about getting hurt again that it's overtaking the pleasure that I used to get from riding. I guess that I'm ready to take on safer activities, ones that I can do with Mr. J. I'm with you Ginger.....hiking might be the way to go!

    Hello's to everyone in the cafe. It's a pleasure to be in such good company!I

    Another 24 please and thank you!

    5:10am in Alberta, another 24 for me please, and thanks...

    In the past 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of sobriety:
    @Jude58 @dill @Rava @paulywogg @Ginger999 @Quit wining @Slo abcowboy


    Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
    Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

    Great example of intimacy, Slo.

    Had a great trip back up to the area I raised my sons. So many great memories in those mountains. It was a great place to raise three rambunctious boys!!

    Jude, I'm sure you'll make the best decision for you and hubby when it comes to your second act!

    I'll take another 24, please and thank you!

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Very proud of my nephew who received his doctorate in physics from Harvard yesterday. Now he’s off to Princeton for 3 years and an expected teaching career following that.

    Jude, whatever decision you make, it’ll be the right one. I’ve only ridden a horse a couple of times, once was a disaster the other enjoyable. As the Cafe knows, my 5 year old border collie is my best little buddy and constant companion.

    A cloudy but mild start to the day when we walked at 6. Might have to freezer dive to find something to barbecue later on.

    Have a great af Friday everyone. Stay well & safe.

    QW
    I try to be the person my best little buddy thinks I am.

    Good advice, Narilly! 24 for me, please.
    Dill

    Donít forget, you can: start late, start over, be unsure, try and fail AND STILL SUCCEED!

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.
