Great Idea for a thread Lyn...........you go Big Sis, Yehaaaaaaaa
In six months from now I would like to see myself more accepting and comfortable with who I am, to be more forgiving of myself when I have set backs and to believe in me.
I want to be able to see more of my children and to spend quality time with them not allowing myself to let anxiety kick in preventing me from enjoying myself.
I would love to feel like I have become a part of the Healing Well family, as I sometimes feel like I don't exist and the old "feel sorry for myself " kicks in which snowballs into tears of loneliness. So I would like to feel more secure in who I am and that I am ok.
I would like to reread Who Moved My Cheese?" by Spencer Johnson, MD.
I would love to travel more and find one person that I could consider my best friend to share my feelings with.
I want to see Cher in concert, and the Broadway Musicals, Hairspray and Chicago.
I want to play with my grandchildren and be close to each of them as to be able to hug them and tell them in person how much I love them.
I want to see my husband's health stay well and no flare of his Crohn's but if it does, I want to see me deal with it in a positive way and support him as he has supported me so much through all of our marriage.
I want to see each of you find peace and happiness.
Blessings to all..................share with us your dreams and your goals.
Hugs to all
You are a joy to have on the site and I love to read your posts. I love the sharing that takes place here, so keep it up. Lyn is soooooooooo right, we are proud of you and your great successes.
I know I drop into these moods but I pull out and that is my goal to stay out in the next six months and every month thereafter. I have made so much progress this past year and now I want to have fun and laughter in my life.
I want to bring it to others too. I enjoy people so much, and I truly care deeply about the people here, the family. You will not be kicking any butt here, I will not let myself get that low................lol.
So come on everyone, tell us what your dreams, plans, goals are. We want to hear from everyone of you.
It is true if your around happy people you cannot help having it rub off on you. Gentle Hugs.
Lov ya Big Sis and thanks...................................
Lil Sis out.
One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas.
How he got into my pajamas I'll never know.

2. Reason your fear away. Face the fear and call it the impostor that it is using Truth as your ally.
3. Don’t fight the fear. That will only give it strength.
4. Let the fear feelings come. Watch the fearful thoughts and feelings come over you. Stand your ground and continue watching. Soon the fear will pass over you and be gone like a wave on the ocean that splashes over you and then rolls silently by.
5. Do not run from fear. Or you will always be on the run.
6. Walk side by side. Walk with fear down the path of Truth and one day you will discover there is no fear there at all.
WINNING THE WORRY WAR
1. Wake up. Get out from under the slumber spell. Become aware of your thoughts.
2. Step outside. Stand outside of your thoughts and look in at them through the window of your mind. Realize that your worry thoughts are separate from reality.
3. See the lies. See that your worry thoughts are, indeed, lies.
4. Trounce with Truth. Dispute your worry thoughts with the truth.
5. Freedom. Watch the fear fade to freedom.
POWERFUL POINTS TO PONDER
1. Stop and start over. Stop whatever you are doing and start over.
2. Look, listen and learn. See your twisted thinking, listen to the Truth, and grow from watching the Truth obliterate your negative thoughts.
3. That was there and then. Realize that your distorted thoughts are of the past or of the future.
4. This is here and now. Awaken. Get yourself into the present moment.
5. The Present present. You are always here and the time is always now. Once you realize this your feet will be firmly planted on the path of peace. PRINCIPLES OF PEACE
1. Patience. Watch the situation. Become aware of your surroundings and calmly and confidently wait.
2. Practice. Separate yourself from your stressful thoughts. View the situation as a wonderful opportunity to practice all that you have learned.
3. Persistence. When the feelings of fear come - hold your ground. Stay relevant and dispute your twisted thinking with the Truth.
4. Power. The Truth is all-empowering. Soon your fearful thoughts and feelings began to dissipate into the week nothingness that they are.
5. Peace. Using the power of Truth you have won the worry war. You have won freedom. The treasure of peace is you
I found this on a website, some good points to remember Jen
