That's wonderful Jeff ☺.
Yo, Jeff, Im trying to get this body in ultra marathon shape. Any suggestions?
Nah, just want to test the body's limits and take care of it. And I'm a he not a she.
I'm not in ultra shape anymore, Love. But I can give advice! Lots of good free training plans out there. I recommend finding folks to run with to make the long runs easier!
thx, J. any plans you'd rec?
Hal Higdon has some great plans. And Relentless Forward Progress is a great book!
I'll check them out. thx.
Great you booked something!
Yay! Hope you enjoy the *** out of it. I wish I could go somewhere too... But can't right now.
Agreed. Warmer weather has buoyed my spirits. Waiting for leaf buds to open and plants to flower.
That sounds delightful
I'm really sorry Jeff. Yes, I find the same. I always think of you even though I am not on here as often. There are certain people on here I always think of and you are one of them 🙂. You are not alone. We can all suffer together. Big Hugs
It can be hard to get one's sh it together
It does. Challenging times on top of it all.
Has it been 3 years already. I remember you talking about your friend.
Guessing you're still mourning the loss of connection
As we get older, I think it's much harder to make friends. Also to find people you sync with. Sigh.
Merry Christmas Jeff.best wishes 🙂🌲
I hear you.
I've spend 32 put of 34 christmesses being single and it can be a lot of fun too; apart from the all you need is love TV shows
Yeah, I don't like all the love films and songs either... They try to put in our minds Christmas is only worth being celebrated in couple which is definitely not true!
I hope the next year will be better ❤️
Happy birthday ,Jeff,hope 2021 brings you joy and luck.hold on there,with you 🙂
Happy birthday dear Jeff
Hey, Jeff, Happy birthday and welcome back. Great to see you posting again-even when you're feeling down. A fellow Sagittarian. Celebrated mine a few days ago. May this year be positively transformative.
Happy birthday. X
There is no right or wrong between friends. They will understand. Try not to worry.
We want you around. Hope your okay!
Try writing letters or poems.
what would that outlet look like for you?
We're here until you find it. I know it's hard to keep all those feeling inside.
Write it all down and then burn it, that was what my therapist advised, it's a great release!
Sounds good Jeff! Happy for you.
Definitely thankful for them. Thankful for the two friends I was able to see last night and enjoy food and bourbon and venting with. Thankful for sun on a day that's supposed to be rainy. Thankful for my job, despite being extremely unmotivated...
...because I'm doing fairly well financially and paying down a nagging credit card (slowly) and able to look to buy a new car before winter hits. (Scheduled a test drive tomorrow.)
Last night, my head hurt bad, and I wondered if I'm having an aneurism or stroke or something. I thought about what my dog would do, since it would surely be at least a week before anyone checked on me. I wouldn't care, I figured, if he ate me to...
...survive. But where would he get water? I don't leave the toilet seat up. It made me very sad to think about him dying slowly while I rotted away in bed. I wish there was some way of ensuring someone would check now and then to make sure I'm alive.
For him more than me.
Are you having migraines? There are meds that help, I've been taking a low dose of Propranolol for a while, and it's changed my life. I've had horrible headaches for years, they drove me insane.
That said, I love my house and slept so well in my own bed. And happy to be back with my dog!
sounds like the transition provoked mixed feelings- gratitude to be back home & some heaviness around the usual routine- wanting a change.
Welcome back :)
... getting away and relaxing and disconnecting (mostly). Need to do that more often.
I think I wanted great revelations and self realizations. I got calmness and peace, which I probably needed more.
I'm glad it worked out for you in some way. I hope your transition going back to work goes smoothly.
Ahh sitting by the fire sounds lovely.
Sounds relaxed :)
beautiful. enjoy the moment. wishing you rest & clarity.
Sounds lovely, Jeff - glad you're enjoying the cabin
sounds peaceful. In Nature, we can often connect to what is true & enduring.
Thank you, pandas. I've been looking forward to this for a long time. Seems the perfect 2020 vacation. My goal is to achieve and get past boredom.
Enjoy your rest🙂
This sounds fantastic! Even though the boredom bit may be challenging for some. Have a great time.
This sounds awesome! I'm glad you are doing something for yourself, Jeff. Enjoy the peace & quiet.
want to hear yourself talk. I try to be cognizant of this myself. But it's so hard when no one will listen to me and let me get anything out.
I will be here to listen if you need someone to talk to :I
sounds like you're wanting that rarest of gifts: deep, empathic listening without advice, comparison, fixing, data-gathering, etc., just to be heard and understood without judgment.
I can see how that'd be frustrating. Keep talking to us. We'll always be here for you!
