    Re: New Year New Start Army January 2021

    SO -- things aren't looking marvellous virus wise here in Ireland - think things may have gone a bit off the rails over Christmas -- the irony in OUR family is of course - the only one who put themselves in the way of danger was the only one who is in danger if he GETS the virus - and that was Joe in Beaumont hospital!! So it's 8 days now since that happened.. or 7 -- nope only 7 --- so we have to hope that he's ok -- ANYWAY -- long story short -- I won't tell it at all ;-) ach I will --- we sent a message to the family group to say we are locking ourselves down - totally - for a couple of weeks anyway -- no visits - no nothing.. just going to isolate - me - him - and Mutt..... it would be MADNESS to expose ourselves to the poxy virus when we'll probably get the vaccine quite soon -- certainly Joe will - and I won't be far behind him hopefully -- so yeah -- alone all alone -- (sounds heavenly but mustn't look TOO happy) - so I'll have yiz tormented on here to talk to me

    Happy New Year, Army. Lots of plans and strong intentions await. I’m heading off to hike Yosemite’s Hetch Hetchy. Not sure the trail is open but we’ll blaze our own otherwise. Blessings x

    Good afternoon/evening Army!!

    And sweet dreams to the Undies!!

    @JackieClaire - the countdown has begun dear girl. Only three more days. Am excited for you - you will be like a new woman!!

    @mollyka - hope Joe is feeling better soon. I hear you on the lock-down. Our numbers had been lower for a few days but back up again the past couple of days. People who got together over Christmas, no doubt. Best we be as careful as possible.

    @starty and @rustop59 - your early morning walks sound wonderful. Am going to try for at least an early stroll on Sunday mornings. Love it when no one else is up and it's so quiet out. Would be even better if it was a bit frosty. Still warm weather here.

    @satz123 - what you said about new beginnings. As I have said many times - the past is where it belongs - in the past... !

    @Tabbers (a.k.a. KTAB) - greetings to you as well. You know, you sound so pleased with your sobriety. And content. May it that feeling always be with you...

    @byebyebridgetjones - waiting to hear how the early morning plan will work. As for NY resolutions, I rarely make them because whenever I have in the past, I set the goals too high and could never reach them. So I will continue to be sober and look after myself as best I can so I can continue to help and support those around me when they need it. Just that. Nothing more.

    @techie - hope you enjoy your hike. Wishes for no health "adventures" this year. Just that you enoy yourself making new memories.

    @brit - I too am thinking of you Mrs. A and hope that Mr. A is comfortable and that you have your family members near to help ease your burden. My prayers are with you.

    To all of you sincere wishes for a safe and healthy 2021. It was a difficult year for all the world. Hopefully we will emerge stronger, wiser and with greater empathy from our experiences.

    Here's to a sober, healthy New Year!!

    For every 60 seconds that you are angry, you lose a minute of happiness.

    Re: New Year New Start Army January 2021

    Morning all. I acheived 5.30am this morning in the early riser goals. I thought that might do, but in fact you do miss the sunrise at 5.00am, which is half the point of waking early. So tomorrow I will plug on to 5am.
    The fatigue is starting to lift one week into holidays and many sneaky snoozes on the lounge. I would love not to feel tired for a change.

    Only a few days to go JC. My Dad had that op done some years ago and it was life changing for him.

    Satz, I'm going to do my own research on the vaccine. We will be vaccinating later than a lot of other countries, so more data will be available by the time I line up myself. I will certainly post any information that I see as long as it is from a reliable source.

    Stirly, I keep coming back to the old AA adage 'anything that you put ahead of your sobriety, you will lose' - or something like that. It took me so long to understand that. But now I really do. It has to be priority number one, ticking along in the background like anti-virus software, but still requiring regular updates.

    Hola army. Happy new year.

    Cool Jonesy. (up at 5 today myself) The reason i'm attracted to gittin up before the sun is the quiet reflection time before the masses and associated noise awake. For me, we can customise our morning routines, though the 5 a.m. club protocol is close to what i do anyway only earlier start. Suits me as it happens.

    Re improving the mind, what do i know?! However my reading is primarily about what i need at the moment. i.e. Investing in property to make a buck. and mindset. With mindset, i'm careful what i think. I'm becoming more aware of energy transmission. What am i receiving and putting out there into the world. What are my thoughts and actions attracting to me, doing to me? Law of attraction stuff, along with gittin offay with some basic universal laws so i'm maximising my effectiveness as a human. Visualisation. Am i blocking my progress with where my focus goes unbeknownst to moi? Plenty of info around via various messengers, some kosher others high on sugar. Dr. Bruce Lipton has some interesting info on thoughts, feelings, cells, biology connection. Worth a look if u haven't heard of him. He's on You tube. Mel Robbins has some basic common sense git it done templates and idea's too. Have been taking care of me ok so far, just checking if there's anything i've missed or should be incorporating. Have a beaut weekend mi amiga. x

    Re: New Year New Start Army January 2021

    Happy new year all

    Yes, Im a goldfish too Starts, always in awe of Stirly's posts.

    Enjoy the peace Molly. I did hear the general area around here is rampant now, although I still dont know anyone, but looks like that will change. Keeping my kids away from others is a nightmare and of course ''everyone else is out''.. the older ones were showing me pictures of people they knew out last night on sessions.. just madness. I suspect schools will not be back this month.

    But to nicer things, roll on Jan 4th and JC's 2021 vision, a great start to the new year!

    What time do you all go to bed at, in order to get up at 5am?
    My lot are at the wrong age to even try getting to bed early, if I went first, middle would still be up at 5am when I woke up.

    The area was doing badly up to 14th Dec... we weren't up there with the Nordies or Donegal - but it wasn't great - but the latest figures I saw - up to 29th Dec. we are really doing very well -- maybe there's more recent figures again - but best not upsetting yourself looking at it.. it's the whole electoral area anyway - the town itself isn't bad at the moment.. or at the last moment I read!!! oh it's so exhausting.

    I get you with the kids - we were literally a 24/7 house for some years - Joey converted the garage into a red light district (well not literally -- but they did have a red light) - so every 'homeless' teenager was coming up to party every night until we put a stop to it... wouldn't be happening now!

    Like Australia Bridge -- Ireland is such a small wee unimportant country on the edge of the world that we will also be probably quite late getting the vaccine ( I didn't mean that Australia is a small wee unimportant country - just that we'll be late getting it as well)-- the really urgent folks like nursing homes and staff will get them imminently - but it'll be quite a while I reckon before they get to us - so it'll be good to see if there's any reasons to avoid it!!! providing it's only minor short term side effects I'll be in tho!

    Fair dues to the going through every one who posts Stirl - I remember the Steppers used to post like that - but tbh I couldn't remember everything or everybody-- I just post what comes into my head or struck me as a good point or an important point.. so I'll stick with me - but yeah - it's thoughtful.

    Starty is probably 3 hours into her 94 hour walk by now and I'm just about managing a cup of tea after feeding the mutt ---- Joe had a setback last night but he seems way better this morning - was googling the symptoms of Covid at midnight -- Christ I'm so sick of all this..... give us back our lives SOMEBODY -- PLEASE!!!!
