★Sharing how Be Mindful has helped you personally

I guess I’m just a chatterbox tonight, but the last thread I read made me want to post some more instead of hitting the hay.

I wont go into depression here, but trust me, I know what it is. Recently, I have started to come back out of my shell. I’m starting to feel alive again and I know Be Mindful is part of the reason. Hat’s off to you, Lee, and my bemindful friends. You know who you are.

Anyway, for a very long time, several years in fact, I would NOT go out. I didn’t want to be seen. I felt ashamed of my life. But as I look over the past year, and especially since I started making some efforts with affirmations and using this site things have really begun to change. I’ve started going to see friends again. I’m reaching out to people. I’m beginning to get involved in life again.

My friends used to call me all the time and ask me to come out. I would always make up an excuse, or say I’ll try, but I never would go. They even made bets as to whether or not I would show up. After a while, they would come and try to drag me out of the house. They eventually gave up. I cut myself off from everyone. Well, that is changing. My friends still call on occasion, but now I’m starting to go out again. This has all started to happen over the last couple of months, about the time I started working on affirmations and coming to this site.

Last weekend a friend called and asked me to come to a party and I said I’d come. They said “bring your guitar”, and I said I would. Well, when I showed up there were probably forty people there. I knew a lot of them, but I had been away so long that I didn’t know a lot of them too. It felt good. There were so many people that were so excited to see me it made me feel really good. Some of my dearest friends were there. I even got up and played a few songs with the band. Later we were sitting on the porch and I was one of the last to leave.

Also, I’m gonna’ go float the Buffalo National river next month. Three days of camping along the river with a good friend. We used to go every year.

I know I’m rambling, but I also want to say how nice it is sometimes to come to this site and just ramble like this. To share. To learn. To communicate during the day, and especially at the end of the day like right now!

Thanks BeMindful

Jeff, you are an extraordinary individual. You have amazing talents, a wonderful spirit and passionate about life. You have what it takes to be whereever and whatever you want. So very excited about your new beginings!

Today is such a brand new day, that we can choose to take the best of all of what we know, and the promise of our decision to begin from where we’re at to create whatever we want. You my friend, are a perfect example of that. Great guy you are. Have a wonderful day, every day.

    Thank you SMRWE for this thread!

The site is not the only entity that continues to move forward with positive change… Every person who truly visits and utilizes sharing, caring, being here adds regular transformative experience to their lives and others…and I Am no exception to this occurrence(:

Looking back to my beginnings on this site many yrs ago- is not just synonymous with creating affirmations, as SRWE has shown by his beautiful example, it is synonymous with creating more life to life.

I remain appreciative.
