This is off the top of my head and from my heart. Yesterday my middle name was "misery." Typically, I went into hiding when my usual methods of self-soothing didn't seem to work.

I muddled through, as best as I could, berating myself for not finding gratitude and other positive emotions. By bedtime I was able to surrendar, grateful for a bed to sleep in even though the sheets were cold, and I was alone there.

A new day has arrived. I am awake, feeling better - hopeful again. A gentle reminder to "stay here awhile" and hold on. There is so much at this site that almost always lifts me up - perhaps the people most of all. I am thinking in song lyrics ... as I often do.

"The long and winding road ..." "I get by with a little help from my friends ...."

With this new day before me I am hopeful once again. I could easily haven given up - for good? Now yesterday is over and I survived. "Here comes the sun .... "

Peace and love to all, Laura (P.S. - wishing you a "Beatle-icious Day :)

Sweet Laura,
thank you for opening your heart to us. You are such a beautiful soul. When I read your name I feel somehow how it scintillates ...

No, never give up. We are never ever alone. We are divine sparks and as such we are always able to find the warm embrace of our divine creator.

Sometimes we feel lost, but we are not really lost and just as we are about to despair, a sign, a light, a smile enter our lives to lift us up.

Every new day holds new opportunities ... to love.

May you feel warm and loved.
Hugs.
Margherita :) luv

Thank you Margherita :)

I've been coming here a long time until I had courage to sign up for the forums. Then I forgot my password - maybe?

Due to my current life condition, I'm often isolated. Here I am not.

I do feel surrounded by love, well wishes, prayers - it really makes a difference.

Thank you so much - luv Laura
