Thank you @Champagne for opening the cafe and inviting me.

I am going to fry some bacon and sausages on one of my camp stoves in my pre-1925 Wagner cast iron and do nothing the rest of the day. I am watching "Designated Survivor" on Netflix.

Feel free to answer what you want and leave the rest! *hi5

What is a miracle that happens every day? The birth of a child.

What is holding you back from being the person you want to be? Right now I am happy with the person I am.

How have your strengths help you to succeed? One of my strengths is patience. I wanted to be a cabinetmaker when I was a young child and my patience has been invaluable in that journey.

What are your biggest goals for your life? To help people.

What is the most uplifting thing happening in the world right now? In all the tragedies right now, earthquakes, forest fires, hurricanes, there are people who will go in and help people clean up the mess left behind.

🌞 Hey @Champagne , You know I always love music. these songs are great. thanks. the day... its being kind of difficult though. i’ll try... i’ll do my best. these questions have thrown me deeply into thought. bear with me 🐻. i’ll try to keep it short....

What is a miracle that happens every day?
🌞 war does not break out all over!
🌞 i wake up still with enough drive to keep on going even with
the disappointments.
🌞 the sky is still blue and i know it even on a grey day.
🌞 birds and flowers exist. ... just to name a few...


What is holding you back from being the person you want to be?
😱
rules, requirements, stigma, attitudes, age, danger... other people’s expectations ...again, just to name a few.


How have your strengths help you to succeed?
🌞 well, is being determined to succeed considered success? maybe this is my strength. i don’t know.
🙀 until there is a way to get around the items that hold me back that i mentioned in the previous answer, i remain as determined as ever and more so. but there are people and institutions and attitudes that stand in my way. they are actually imposing values on me as if they are right and i am wrong - which i’m not.

😱 they do not consider that my discomfort in this world is important enough for them to accept me as knowing what is right for me. they think i should take meds and be happy; or continue therapy and be happy, or maybe even just shut up!
😱 then, in therapy, i do not have an ally or a comrade. a therapist is only willing to help me do the things on my own. but actually having the knowledge that i am not all alone in the world, as me who i really am but have a true friend too, is still something that i have never achieved.
😱 i am alone and probably always will be. people insist i am wrong simply by the prevailing attitudes in the world in these times! yet, if i’m left to my own devices... if i have no one to turn to but myself... i’m told i’m still in the wrong and they go clutching as straws to name my disorders and will not make finding my own way an easy or permitable thing.
😱 they’d rather call me an ambulance and then kick me out of the hospital in one fell swoop as if this is somehow a remedy.
😱 so my strengths? being able to continue on even though i have no one significant on my side. i have zero support systems other than myself. all the significant ones rudely or politely have told me to **** off or to be someone else who they imagine me to be.
🌞 i will eventually reach my goal even though its really much too late in life now. sorry for this mini rant. its the best i could do in answering this question otherwise it would go on another 23 paragraphs easy.


What are your biggest goals for your life?
🌞 to get the obstacles out of the way one way or another and take the necessary step finally.


What is the most uplifting thing happening in the world right now?
🌞 that there are people who actually care and do their best to make little improvements for everyone however they can.

and 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞

What is a miracle that happens every day?
I don't believe in literal miracles. But if you mean extraordinary, amazing things that I feel extremely lucky to experience, then, well, everything related to 'life' is one to me.

What is holding you back from being the person you want to be?
I can only be myself, I am not an actress.

How have your strengths help you to succeed?
I (like to) learn things every day, which are "successes" in themselves to me.

What are your biggest goals for your life?
Finding peace.
Being a good person every day, to everyone.
Keep growing forever.


What is the most uplifting thing happening in the world right now?
I don't know, I'm sure there are lots of things, because there are too many good people in the world.

Glorious day yesterday; then the dryer broke. While discouraging, if that's my only problem...

Resting and going on a short hike today. Maybe some crafting. That will complete my day.

What is a miracle that happens every day?

I was going to say that I wake up but nowadays it is I wake up hopeful. My family is healthy - well one person has cancer but beating it - and that in itself is a small miracle.

What is holding you back from being the person you want to be?
I am happy to be the person I am.


How have your strengths help you to succeed?

Someone told me that I wasn't to have succeeded as much as I have. Just having the hope and drive have kept me going to get to where I am.

What are your biggest goals for your life?

I don't have any goals. That is my recent problem.


What is the most uplifting thing happening in the world right now?

Covid has people returning to family life and slwoing down. I think it has an up side.

Good morning Champagne and all,

I can't listen to the songs right now because my brain is groggy and noise is the enemy, but I will be back later to.
