It's been an absolutely fantastic day today, the kids are at school and kindy, the wife is at work, i've got the house all cleaned, and for the first time in a long time i've had the house to myself for the whole day. And i've still got 1 1/2 hrs to myself.
 
I love it when its quiet and im alone sometimes, i hope that dosent sound selfish but i just like some me time, it makes me feel good, gives me time to work on some goals, and do things that don't seem like a chore.
 
The only bad thing is thats its really windy and overcast, so i dont feel like going for my walk outside that i normally do when the kids are'nt here. But were all allowed a day off, and today is my day off. And i feel the happiest and calmest i have in a while as well so thats another positive to the day..
 
I hope everyone else also had a good day, or at least something that made them feel good at some stage of the day..
 
cheers..

yeah liqued
THANKS ever so much for sharing your day with us all
I can feel your contentment lack of anxiety and YES happiness in your post .........
No you are not being selfish at all imho
I believe that we need to have those lazy daze ( Daughter and I call em Jammer days ) when we do it
Sometimes she will have a jammer day with me and we have the house spotless smelling so fresh and she is on couch reading a book whilst momma is in "Comfty" chair  reading or watching tv
 
YOU have come so  far and I truly think we all should be allotted at least one Lazy or Jammer day every week for sure .....to regroup and remember to hold in our heart what is so loved and important to ourselves and well being  
 
SO my friend I am sure glad you were able to have this fantastic day to yourself and you will be able to draw from it when you need strength at some point ( IF) down the road
 
I wish you many many more and MYSELF many more " Jammer" daze's........
 
Again
Thanks for the Positivity and the Happiness in the day you shared with us
You have I am sure helped someone as well by posting and letting them know it is OKAY to do this ........ tongue .....Luvs

Hi guys well Thursaday was an ok day 2 of my kids were home (no kindy on thurs), not a fantastic day but still a good day.

Yesterday (friday) was a very productive day, everyone was out so i did my usaual clean up, (for a man i do look pretty darn good in an apron ..lol :-) ), i played some cds on my tv rather than using my mp3 player, and had to put one of my clothes dryers back together ( timer switch burned out so now have to get rid of it), My dad came over and had coffee, and then i decided to clean out the junkyard we call a garage. So i pulled eveything out swept it all out and put everything back in its proper place and now we have room.. We have decided to make half of the space into a play room for the kids so have to get rid of some junk. So all in all i very productive and good day, The only thing i didnt manage to do was get to the beach, (still can't cross main road as yet) but today (Saturday) is fine and sunny and a good day for a walk so i will go for a walk shortly. ( just need a few more coffees Decaf of course).

So i hope all of you have a great day today, and an even better tommorow.

(((((HUGS))))).. :-)

Hello, This is Kitt and I just got off the plane a bit ago from my vacation.  To come here and read how well you have been doing is wonderful news.
 
I am glad you have learned to give yourself permission to take some time for yourself, we all need to do that as it lets us regroup, relax and look at things in a brand new way.  If we are happy, we have the ability to make others smile.
 
I chipped a front tooth on vacation and my luggage is still on vacation with promises to arrive home at my house tonight.  But I am still smiling at the grand time I had on vacation. yeah
 
Gentle Hugs to you.  Keep on doing better and better.
 
 
Respectfully
Kitt

Hi Kitt,

Great to hear you had a fun vacation, Sorry to hear about your tooth and luggage, hope all is ok.

I have to admit that since joining the HW family, i really feel happier in myself alot more than i used to, also i think the increase in meds have boosted me along as well.

A few months ago everything seemed to be a chore, and i didnt even feel like getting out of bed in the morning, and when i did i would sit at the computer for 12-14 hours a day doing nothing.

In the last few months i want to do things, i feel happier (i still have moments where i hit rock bottom, but these are just little setbacks). It's at the stage where i actually want to go outside and weed the garden, and i hate weeding..lol.

I do owe an enormous thank you to everyone here at HW, everyone here is so supportive and welcoming, it's a great boost for me and everyone. Being able to share with others really helps alot, and i ususally cant share with others, so thats another big step i've accomplished since joining HW.

Again thank you heaps, you are all great people, and we all deserve to and will conquer these nasty critters holding us back from total happiness.

((((((((HUGS)))))))) to all.

hope today is a great day for you all..... :-)

Keep on with those good days and I wish you a whole calendar full.

Special hugs to you my friend.

hey liquid_

It's nice to hear things are going well. It seem like you're kicking some serious butt around the house. Being productive again sounds like it's really making you feel better and it's really nice and refreshing to read. It makes me happy to hear peoples positive stories or days, or even a small event that made them happen :)

keep the positive vibes flowing!

take care_

i still have my downs every day but i dont let them take over anymore, i've told myself that it's positive thinking all the way.

My dad saw my doctor a few days ago to get more medication for me and gave him a progress report, and my doctor said he feels it will be at least 12 months before i can go to work again. (cant wait to run a restaurant kitchen again), But with my goals i have im hoping for 6 months, but if it takes 12 months it just means my passion for food will be stronger so not a setback at all.

I called my best friend last night, He and his Wife just had a baby, and he said he can see the difference just in my voice.

The last time he saw me a few months ago he said "The you i knew wasn't there!" but now i sound really good to him so thats another great step.

He is actually bringing new baby over in a week or so, and we have a walk planned, something i could'nt do last time he was here, so looking forward to that.

And Kitt aka Snaggle Tooth, hope your tooth gets better real soon.

((((((((HUGS)))))))) to all and hope everyone has a fantastic day.... :-)

Hi there.................Glad you are moving forward and congrats to your friends on the new bundle of joy.

Yes we have bad days but my Pdoc and I have worked hard at helping me to learn to accept some normal not so good days as everyone has them and that just makes me  like everyone, not different.

Your goals sound doable and well thought out.  I am glad to hear you have set realistic goals yet given yourself permission to extend the time frame if needed. 

The snaggle tooth has given me character...........lol.  It has also made me keep my big mouth shut so it may be a blessing. :)

Take care my friend and gentle hugs to you.

Hey liquid,

I think I need you to come and clean my house... lol. I have this ingrained notion that the woman is supposed to be the keeper of the house although my husband would disagree with that statement (I grew up with Wonder Woman who could literally handle everything at once - the house was always immaculate - maybe someday I can be like my Mom) however as I work 40 hours a week and have four children, the house work is the absolute LAST thing I want to do. I've really enjoyed reading your posts. I love to hear about people doing better - Lord knows we all have our "days" but it sounds like things are really looking up for you. Congratulations on what you are achieving - you should be very proud!

Liz

Hi liz,

I would gladly clean your house, as long as you dont tease me about my apron..lols tongue .. My mum is like yours, she used to wake us at 4:30am every morning with the vaccum, and her house was always sparkling clean. And i know the feeling with 4 kids of my own, (WOW they can trash a bedroom in 2.5 seconds..lol).

I'm really happy that you've enjoyed my posts, it makes me feel good to know people enjoy reading them an i hope it helps people as well.

And Lyn,

The change in myself since joining the family here at HW is amazing. I never thought it possible to feel even remotely happy, but now i find myself feeling better everyday. I have alot to thank people for.

And Kitt,

That is so true, Bad days do make us exactly the same as everyone else, we are no different, everyone has bad days. Now when i have a bad period in a day, at the end of the day i tell myself "tomorrow will be a better day". and i wake up feeling positive rather than negative..

 

((((((((HUGS)))))))).. :-)
