Friday, October 26


Thanks everyone for visiting me in my journal and for all the positive thoughts.

I'm feeling Ok...I actually just thought of those people who are affected by the CaLi witch fires and it made me feel a little 'selfish" for feeling this way when there are others who lost homes or sicker than I'm trying to look at things/events like that so I won't be a downer.

All your previous and recent thoughts of positiveness helped me a lot.


Thank you so so much..and have a wonderful weekend!


....enjoy these inspiring quotes:

" It is reassuring to know that I can control how I feel and what I do on any given day. The way I choose to see the world, creates the world I see."
--- Joan Lunden


" When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive -- to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
---Marcus Aurelius

Depression is NOT a little thing.  It's HUGE.  And it's a battle.  I KNOW.  Don't underestimate what you're going through.  We're all with you here in J-Land.

It is very sad about the wildfires and we should all be concerned for the wellbeing of those folks, but we cannot let it get us down.  Life is ups and downs and it is exactly as Joan Lunden's quote ... how we choose to view things is how they will be for us.

Keep smiling Gem and know that you have many friends.  :)

I've always hated the quote about being upset about not having shoes, and so forth.  You really cannot minimize your own suffering in the context of great tragedy.  Your depression, your illness, are something so huge and so private that we cannot measure them.

You have a wonderful attitude - the fact that you are looking outside yourself says alot.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
