The Power of Positive Thinking

It is 2:02 PM Wednesday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a nice cloudy not warm day. Nice weather for working outside. I just got inside the house after doing some yard work with Carol. Now Carol is out back watering our plant kingdom.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got up went upstairs to find Carol reading her Bible. I ate some food and took my pills. Next Carol and I got dressed and took a walk before going to my 9:15 AM appointment with my Behavioral Health Specialist named Brianna.

I won't go into detail about our session with Brianna because to be honest I talked and at the end of an hour she made some suggestions, which I have been seeking to do since my crack-up 25 days ago like being thankful, thinking positive thoughts instead of negative thoughts etc. . . Brianna also gave us a list of folks to contact if I wanted a in-depth therapy/counseling. So the next step is for me to find a therapist here in this area where we live and keep taking my meds.

After our appointment we headed home, but Carol and I stopped at thrift stores before arriving home and of course I found some used books. I told Carol I was only going to get used books from the local library used books store The Book Nook and not visit all the time thrift stores. I do not want to start accumulating used books again. I need to get rid of books Not get more! It absolutely amazing that I am always finding excellent used books just around where we live for nothing/cheap old used books. It is all insane!

I should mention this morning on Carol and I's morning walk I found a novel in a local Little Local Library titled, 'Chronicle of the Murdered House' A Novel By Lucio Cardoso Translated from the Portuguese by Margaret Jull Costa & Robin Patterson.

Carol and I got home I ate lunch and wrote in my diary. Next I catalogued my used books I bought this morning into my LibraryThing site Bookmountain. I then went outside and helped Carol do yard work.

Not much else to report. I did read this morning some of The Gospel of Mark. I am going to close to rest and take some Xanax.
