Thursday Goals!

Good morning!

Happy Thursday!

Everyone is encouraged to share their goals for the day here. Please share something you are grateful for as well.

My goals are to be focused and present and kind. I will meditate and seek peace in all I see and do. I will listen to understand. I will make good choices for my body and spirit.

I have a busy day today that will end in a fun "girl's night" out with three of my closest friends. We're headed to a dinner and show-a Motown extravaganza presented by a local community college with some pretty good original performers. Sadly, we've lost too many of the Motown greats…

I am grateful that we will get to spend time together enjoying some of the greatest live music ever made…that Motown sound hits us folks in Michigan a bit harder than most.

      That sounds like a terrific day!

      We are wrapping up projects and class and I think I get as or more excited about the stuff that gets created. So awesome to watch what students produce and seeing them proud of themselves is one of the most beautiful things on earth.

      Lunch is packed and I'm ready for the gym later. Have a great day everyone!

    • Happy Thursday! Excited for you Kj smile! I am sad cause my daughter will be leaving soon. I'll never forget her huge help & support in moving (and how complicated it is to move). My husband & I are going to the condo while she works remotely and will visit our old neighborhood restaurant for lunch.

    • Good morning! Off on a beautiful river drive followed by a day of shopping! Enjoy the music kj, love a little Motown as well!

    • That sounds lovely, kj. I love motown music. I know what you mean about losing the greats. I feel the same about jazz. When I was in college, Freddy Cole (younger brother of Nat King Cole) came to perform on a week night. I had a ton of homework to do, but I realized that time was running out to see even the people who had played with the original greats (most of the original greats themselves have been gone a long time). So, I went, stayed in the back, and left early. But I went, and I'm so glad I did.

      Anyway, plenty of work to do today. Talking to my therapist later. She's been so helpful for me. I do have some good things happening in terms of getting my life moving forward. I don't want to give details though. I don't think anyone is tracking me here, but I'd rather not leave a written trace of where I am, etc. Which is why I'm being so vague about my goals on here.

    • We are just doing packing, homework, tasks so pretty much busy all day
      No school because of fall break

    • Good morning. Checking in because I need support and I know you all are great for that.

      I am stressed. To the max.
      Dealing with 2 sick kids, trying to work full time. My husband has been watching them since he is home, but its taking a toll on his health. He doesn't have much energy these days and the kids are energy suckers.
      We got news yesterday that liver cirrhosis is starting. His spleen has grown 2cm, which isn't a lot, but still...any growth is bad.

      Anyway, I'm just trying to hold on. I had a little cry fest in the car on the way to work.

      Trying to stay positive

    • Lots of hugs for you, niffer. It's ok to cry. I've actually been almost scheduling times to cry recently. I think it helps.

      I hope things settle down a little bit for you soon. Sending lots of love to you and your family.

      Keep reaching out for support.

      I'm doing a little better now, but I truly needed all the help I could get, and I really appreciate all of the support people gave me.

      I'm here to listen and help in any way I can.

    • Niffer I'm so sorry that is happening I will pray for your family
      How long have them been sick also I'm sorry about your husband having a hard time with the liver thing I hope this week gets better
      Hang on there you got this smile

    • niffer so sorry to hear that news about your husband you are all on my prayer list we are here and you know even if it just to vent it helps . I'm sending you great big hugs from across the pond xxx

    • Niffer, I am sending positive vibes your way. You and your family are in my prayers.

    • Thank you, MMM, Chloe, Flop and Jam.

      Today it all just came crashing down on me.

      Thoughts and prayers sent, Niffer. Hang in there.

    • Thanks, Taco.

      Thanks everyone...I really appreciate it.

    • Thinking of you Niffer, that tomorrow is a MUCH better day for you and family!

    • Taco-school projects are awesome and give students a chance to really shine. It's magical, truly…

      Milesann-I'm sure you made some wonderful memories while your daughter was around; and, I'm sure she'll be back if/when you need her.

      Xxxyy-I hope you enjoyed your drive and shopping! What a fun day…

      MMM2-yes, these experiences are precious, given the realization that they have an expiration date…the show tonight was fabulous and I was called up to dance on stage-that would have never happened even three years ago. I would have been too self conscious…
      And, you don't need to share any details about anything, other than letting us know if you're okay. We worry…

      Chloe-packing can be quite a chore. I hope you have something fun planned for part of your fall break.

      Niffer-I am so sorry you are struggling…please know that lots of positive prayers and vibes are being sent your way. You are not alone, even if it feels that way sometimes…

      Flop & Jam-I love how this group comes together for one (or more!) of our own…

      My day got away from me; I can't remember a more busy or fun day. It's way past my bedtime…wink
