    Good Morning Absville!

    A little short on time this morning, but I just wanted to start things off with this thought:

    "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost."

    Martha Graham

    Good morning Absville

    Good morning ......good morning.......Today is a much better day. I woke up with shiny eyes and bushy tail and will be trotting off for my morning walk along the lake. Thanks for all your support yesterday, I guess I am back on track. Can anyone tell my how to get these emoticons into the text box.
    Have a wonderful day.

    Morning All,

    Yes, I am STILL here...I am just having the darndest time saying goodbye! No really, the plan is to pull out around noon so I am pretty much on schedule.

    Anyway, Great quote Susan!! Along the same lines....

    "There is an old Christain tradition that God sends each person into this world with a speccial message to deliver, with a special song to sing for others, with a special act of love to bestow. No one else can speak my message, or sing my song, or offer my act of love. These have been entrusted only to me."

    John Powell L.J.

    It is true, there is only one you, and blocking the force within you allows no one to hear what God intened for you to share!

    Have a GREAT day all!

    Donna

    PS Lori, you just click on the emotion you want and POOF it appears! :d

    Hi there Neighbors in Absville!

    I've been checking out Absville and reading your posts, and it seems like a nice town to live in, pretty warm and cozy and friendly. I've been living in Modsville, but lately my little part of town has been going down hill, even though the rest of Modsville is still beautiful and the people are great. So I thought that it would probably be a good thing for me to move to Absville. I know I need to do it, because I haven't been happy with myself, and Absville looks more attractive to me, even though you all know that it can be scary to move!!:eek

    Anyway, I write that all a little tongue in cheek, and I am cutting and pasting what I wrote in this morning's mods thread here:


    "I know I keep saying this, but I am trying to work myself up to doing another period of abs. I go back and forth in my head, saying "Oh just do abs during the week" or "just have some AF days", but after a bit, I realize that I really felt better when I got some time not drinking under my belt. My ultimate goal has been to not have drinking be part of everyday life, but something I only do occasionally. If I'm ever going to get there, I'm going to have to stop f*rting around and get moving with it. It's scary though .......

    I probably won't start until after the weekend, because for me, starting on a weekend is like asking for failure. Not because the weekend is "party time" but because there is so much free time, and I'm not very good at structuring myself. I do better when I have more to do and I can keep my mind off drinking.

    Oh well, that's my post. I hope you all have a great day. There, I've committed this to cyber paper. Now all I have to do is click the button and send it off. What if I fail? Arrrgghh! Just click the button, Kath, just click it!"


    At any rate, I woke up this morning, and I knew that I had to post on the abs forum today and "state my intentions". It feels both scary and liberating. I would like to start abstaining on Tuesday, because Tuesdays and Wednesdays are my busiest days and therefore the easiest for me to start on. Meanwhile, I am changing my suggestions on my hypno cd's, and going to up my topa on Sunday, and minimize my drinking as much as I can between now and Tuesday.

    I don't know if I'll ever really be able to drink just occasionally, although I'd love to be able to do that. I don't want to think about it now. I just know that I miss the feeling that I had when I did have periods of abstinence, and I don't like how I feel about myself now.

    I hope you all will welcome me and that you won't mind me posting here as I gear up for this.:eek I feel better already!

    Hugs,:d
    Kathy

    Dear Donna,
    You are still here. Let me wish you a wonderful vacation.
    Let the birds wake you up in the morning with their song.
    Pick a soft spot of pine needles to lay down your bed.
    Lie down in a meadow and watch the clouds changing shapes with your kids, chew a blade of grass and watch the ants go about their business. Be a child again and you will feel part of this wonderful universe.
    Love Lori

    Hi All,
    Happy you joined us Kathy.
    Even tho the :evil is still lurkin around in some of my thoughts...I'm still AF and on day 37. Its not like I'm barely hangin on, but....i dont know....just know I wont stay AF forever. Not that that was ever my goal anyway. Somethin like now that I have these 37 days....what am I gonna do with em? Does that make sense? Worry about not handleing mod, but dont want AF. I dont know. Also hate to hear myself complain. To me...I sound like I am whinin. And I dont even like wine. Its beer. (that was very dry...the joke not the wine)
    well, off for a busy day with the kids. gabby

    Hey Gabby,

    You don't sound like you are whining, you sound like you are trying to figure out what you do want for yourself in the future regarding alcohol. It's a hard thing to figure out. I know how I'd LIKE to be, but I don't know if that is possible. Good luck thinking it through!

    Hugs,
    Kathy

    Welcome, Kathy!
    Happy Camping, Donna!
    Thanks for the lovely thoughts, Lori!
    Always glad to see you, Matt!!
    Don't hear you whining at all, Gabby!

    Me, I'm a bit sluggish today...feeling lots of anxiety about a project I have put off for over a week...have to call some "important" people....guess I have a bit of a phone phobia....just another "challenge," I guess....
    hugs, y'all!
