The MSFN café - A Penny for Your Thoughts


Recommended Posts

Intrusive thoughts are only thoughts - they are not you - they will pass in a moment. Let silence not wear at your resolve when your mind tries to tell you you're alone. Be kind to yourself - find love within and you'll never feel alone - you are not alone. Feel and BE - listen, ask, and be right there when YOU (yourself) come calling - always right there when ever you need ME; you see!

I will write more a bit later as I do have a bit more insight. Always good to know (remember) that we all have our own walk. We are all just doing what we can to get through each day. Our own "Issues" (so to speak) but I don't like to see everything as an issue. Only a problem when it becomes a problem and we can create or turn something into a problem when it needn't be so. There is NOTHING wrong with appreciating our own company. People are afraid to be alone. Why? Would being around other people help cure? Perhaps, but perhaps not. Difference between solitude and solace. Hard to see sometimes when isolated.

I wasn't implying that what I said is an issue per se. My mind tends to wander and wonder about the possibilities out there I might be missing out on.

Yes yes! Having an issue with something is different than having "issues" has that latter implies there is something "wrong", where its not wrong (bad or incorrect) to *examine life*. It is good to question and even having a problem is not akin to having "problems", because, again, the latter has negative connotations. We needn't see ourselves as wrong; ever. We are not even designed to be content (by nature), we always question and (our minds) wonder (and wander), because that wonder can lead to change so long we recognize with change comes new possibilities and challenging circumstances. Remember, when you allow your mind to wander you are still in the drivers seat so be leery to drift into dark territory (very very difficult to do sometimes) and bring back to self and the present. Wonder and wander and you won't be "stuck". Even the smallest change can result in improvement. Look ahead, but not too far, rather, references the past but don't look back as its gone. Your life starts TODAY.

I will write more later, but need to post this as it came to me and I feel its important as I'm hit a block (this happens to me often). Thank you for understanding that my writing can be (more than) a bit weird, because I AM (very) weird; without question. Off the wall nuts ... Ha :)

Always laugh at your situation and you'll be laughing with you not at you. ;)

EDIT: Please accept my apologies as I need to edit this a few times to made sure its right and I will give more thought to the phrase "missing out" today.

Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

I don't think it's weird. Insightful might be the term.

I hope you will find light or the light will find you.

Thank you very much for the kind words ! I'm not sure I will after what I've seen during my volunteer shift in Ukraine. Hell is not the word to describe ...

Please , don't be sorry for me. I'll survive .  I have a thick skin . I just usually get more and more evil and live with it . It's like a tonne of new evil thoughts added to my bank.

I've seen some hell before (during my military days) , but this .... this is on the whole new level.

I'm not sorry for myself , I'm just sorry for the people who lost everything thanks to russkies/reds and their ideology.

I've "aged" better than my brothers and sisters.  I always tell them this regarding their lines across their face - "Those aren't wrinkles, those are wise cracks!"

Haha ... I'm glad you have. I look like I've been run over ... backed up and run over again by a bus ... Tore Up from The Floor Up :}

You guys are so funny.  I haven't had a good laugh since forever.  I'm so glad I joined this board by accident.  I was laughing during my walk when I remembered Tripredacus' profile ... and I had to pretend to be talking to the trees and the shrubs so that nobody would think I was crazy laughing and talking to myself.

You mean ... *Haha* funny or *straight jacket* funny ... =P

I just wanted to say hello and thank you for personally reaching out to me. Means a lot and hope you will return and post again. You seem like a very nice person. My plants are my best company and I am my best company. Nothing wrong with talking to the trees and shrubs, they do hear us, you know. ;)


So .. Know why did the PowerPoint Presentation crossed the road? A. To get to the other slide :buehehe:

Gosh, I actually took a class ages (and ages) ago on PowerPoint and never really got it. Does anybody even use that anymore? Man do I feel OLD.

Now that you mentioned it ... I've given it some serious thoughts ... likely BOTH ?  Yeah ... must be.  Wait wait ... I can be funny too ... I have collected some jokes one from the US and one from the UK ...

BTW, plants are high maintenance, I'm into self-sufficiency, and they kept dying on me if I forgot to water them.  In the end I gave them all away.  Now I only have plastic plants to talk to, and they never talk back !  We never argue and now we live happily ever after.  Beat that!
