In the last few months I’ve seen quite a lot of my friends & family. I’d like to keep up with it even though the wintery weather makes things more difficult. These last couple of days I’ve felt too low energy to trek out for coffee meet-ups, but I’ve taken extra time to write/call some of the people I haven’t been in touch with for too long a time. These days it really takes so little to let someone know you’re thinking about them. I know it means a lot to me when someone takes a minute so to just say ‘hey’...
A shot of Bounce?
Thank-you. I think if I can somehow manage to overcome the insomnia that’s crept back into my nights I’ll do better. Staying up until 4am doesn’t do much for one’s mood/stamina the next day. I’m going to try to force myself into bed early tonight. Cheers…
1:30 edit: Failure with the early to bed thing. I think I need a new goal.
I haven't yet
I think it’s quite difficult to find an available place to get messages out right now, I’m guessing they’ll log onto facebook & let everyone know they’re okay, there are already numerous messages there from other concerned friends.
I’ve mentioned them under this goal before (my beautiful bellydancing friend and her husband), they went away for a big cathartic month long adventure in India. I’m sure they’re fine (and the media here seems to be on the ball with releasing info on the various Canadians involved), I’ll just feel much better once I know for sure.
I do have a few extra issues when it comes to worrying about friends now, so thanks for asking. My heart goes out to all the many people this tragic situation has touched.
Extra thanks to Labash for asking if I’d heard from my friends in India yet, I checked their facebook for the millionth time and they’d recently posted a note to say they’re okay, followed by oodles of friends expressing their relief. I received a couple of more in-depth e-mails from them a short while ago too, so I’m unwinding & relieved. Looking forward to some big hugs when they get home though.
Mme Delacroix why do I always come back here when I'm melancholy?
...for the Christmas postcard : D It’s really pretty and colourful : D
good for you
i made it my new years resolution to identify and take advantage of oppertunites to spend time with people i care about … writting and calling seemes like such a good way to start it
yogamom07 Stepping it up a few notches
Hey, how are you?
Yes this is a task I have to improve upon. I just get so busy with everyday life, that sometimes it’s hard to stop what we are doing and pick up the phone. Especially trying to establish friendships… I am going to make it a point to pick up the phone and say “hi, how are you doing”. This I know for sure: we can take responsibility for anyone elses actions but our own. Great Goal.
Ru, Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Dead7and_Dreaming has a CAST! (and no, I didn't break anything!),
I love the picture, it is the best drawing I have seen in a long while. I wish I had the drive and positive attitude you have. I’ve left friends behind because I never call them and it hits me every now and then why did I do that? Must say it again magnificent artwork.
P.s I love how the fox is her hair and the letters form her arm and the face is just perfect!!!
