Moving this to a different burner...

I am moving this to the front burner and taking a more active role in the happiness in my life. I am starting over and 'doing it right' this time. I just thought I'd get this statement out there
Celia.. how are you handling the group? Do you share the goals each month or just talk about it after the month? I know you told me some but I think I blocked some out of my memory because it just reminded me that I yet again wasn't putting myself first

I recommend it. You have to go beyond the fluff, to see what it's telling you.
I've had a friend - TORM knows the scrapbook store- in Hershey - the gals contacted me and told me their mother - who is 7 years older than I am - was diagnosed with a brain tumor. They had to biopsy it at Penn State Hershey Medical Center - and they can't get it to stop bleeding. She now cannot speak, walk, eat, and is in pretty bad shape. So I'm living for now, and not sweating small stuff. And as long as we are all here - it's all small stuff. I really thought alot about "Joy" - her name - ironic, huh? - and have said prayers for her as well as prayers of gratitude for my life.

I'm praying for a miracle for Joy. I am hoping she - get this - whom I always envied, seemed like she had it all - perfect husband, three wonderful daughters, huge home, not one financial worry in the world - well ..... there ya go. Guess she didn't have it all- good health was the big missing link. I am going home - and when I work late use that as an excuse as to why I'm not getting everything done - and getting my stuff done. No more excuses.

Our group is still going although it is tricky now as we are on different continents. We think perhaps soon we will have to do it all by Skype.
What we do is talk about the chapter at the end of at month. We try to meet somewhere nice so in a place like a coffee shop or the most memorable was in the lounge at the hotel in Monument Valley. We all managed to cry and talk about amazing things and troubles in our lives. In fact it is only in the last two meetings that I haven't cried!
We are due to meet for August discussion but haven't sorted that one out what with my work and one in NYC and the other one on the other side of the city. But we are determined because the talk is so good. The July meeting was held in Melbourne at a hotel my friends were staying at.
We each have a notebook to put our thoughts and goals in. Mine is one my niece gave me that has the penguin Prise and Prejudice cover.
I am compiling a list at the back of the book of my life quotes you know the ones "be me" type of thing. We each sort of roam our way around and back over te chapter and end up talking and sharing for about two hours.
