    OK, here's my question for today. It's a bit different than the one's I've been posting. I love exchanging blogs! So will you guys share your's? That's if you have one, and you want to share it. I'll give you all mine:
    http://mybizadventures.com is the blog where I talk about online business type things.
    http://lifes-adventures.me is my personal blog.
    http://webgurl.me is the very neglected linkblog that I need to update today!
    http://techspazz.com is a site I bought off Flippa, that also needs some updating. Lol when I moved to the new host, I let all the previous Techspazz articles go because they were mostly auto-posted articles from other sites. Lol and no, I'm not trying to spam yu guys, hah! I'll also take social media contacts, if you want to share those.

    I'm curious about meditation and what are the difference between the many different techniques : Transcendental, Zazen, Vipassana, etc.

    I now some of you guys practice meditation and perhaps have tried or use several different techniques. Please tell me what works for you and why ! Many thanks <3

      @tigerwoman I practice Centering Prayer which is a form of contemplative prayer or meditation. I initially started with Centering Prayer because it was within my religious tradition. I have since tried other form of meditation and find Centering Prayer to be the most useful. Centering Prayer focuses upon letting go instead of attempting to keep a clear mind (very difficult to impossible for most people).

      @celticchristian thank you for your reply ! I had not heard of CP before, so I will definitely look this up. I love the idea of focussing on letting go.

      May I also ask how often you use it and if it was easy to integrate into your day to day ?

      @jlittle I am proud of my resilience: I have not only survived, I have thrived, and with aplomb, enthusiasm, passion and grace! I am also (can I list two...hee hee..) extremely proud of my work ethic.Especially at a time when so many other people don't have one that is as well developed.....

      @jlittle I'd have to say that would be all the things I've been fortunate enough to experience. Skydiving for instance, mom and dad got it for my birthday twice. I was fortunate enough to take a trip to space camp back in 1999, and although it required some fundraising on my part, it was a lot of fun!

    How do you refresh your life, or move in another direction?
    I have been tired, run down and sick for the last two years. I have had the symptoms of having a cold without necessarily having a cold.
    I just cancelled personal training which was hard, and my gym membership is close to running out. I feel like I try to do too much and I crash. Other people ask me to do more than I'm capable of, and I get stressed. Is living slow the answer?
    We are supposed to take breaks and do things for fun, but my hobbies are things like writing and browsing the web, and I think this can be too much like work, its not neccessarily relaxing. I do walk sometimes, but its not relaxing, the dogs cause me a lot of stress and bark a lot. I should probably do stuff like have baths or something. I'm not really sure how to relax.

    So basically what I do instead of relaxing, is I jam my head with images, words and ideas instead of taking time to process everything.

      @stephanie When I was much younger, I felt awful all the time. I found a local free meditation class. It changed my life. I don't know if it would help you, but it helped me. I haven't been the same since, and I couldn't be happier. It made me see things differently, and it made me aware of my breathing and my presence in my body in a way that helps me soothe myself. Good luck and please let us know what you can find to help you feel better.

      @wyverndust I am with you Wyvie, meditation is a useful tool.

      @stephanie I think you struck on something profound in your last sentence; you jam yourself too full. Maybe, as you get ready to do things or take on more, etc, ask yourself "Am I too full for this right now?" and if so opt out. Say no. You don't have to provide explanations. And nothing is written in stone, you can opt back in later, if you choose. This can apply to anything, everything and everyone. It may be harder with work related issues, but baby steps......start with things outside of work, then setting boundaries there may get easier? Just a thought.......

      @stephanie Ah, this seems to be me, these days. I started school in October, and work 50+ hours - closer to 60 if you count the commute, got a puppy in January, changed jobs - and I feel like I've had a low grade cold since Christmas. In fact, I was really sick from Dec.24th until January 4th or 5th, and feel like I've not quite gotten over it. I'm also raising baby chickens and starting seeds for my garden - so while the garden will eventually be relaxing, it won't be for another few months! Good luck! I am looking forward to all the replies because I don't have an answer, yet, either.

      @stephanie I have experienced a forced refresh over the past year when I made the very difficult decision to leave my marriage after 14 years even though I still love the man I married (long story). I left in August and I am still struggling with the aftermath in my spirit. Here is what I have done to move on:


      1. for the first two months, I traveled among friends...I call them my Sanctuary Families. Having people in your life who you can trust with your deepest pain and your greatest joys is critical. I know I am fortunate.

      2. I returned to counseling to deal with the conflicting emotions. I still go every other week. A good counselor is a blessing.

      3. I created a home that is comfortable and welcoming. Yes, it is a two bedroom apartment and not the beautiful dream house that my husband and I built together but it is a safe and peaceful environment and that is so important.

      4. I made a list of "Things To Do" so that when I am sitting around feeling sorry for myself, I can pick something from that list (do a puzzle, organize my photos, try new recipes, go for a walk, plan an outing, make origami cranes, etc.)

      5. I contracted for personal training at the gym for a long term. It is expensive but it is also a guaranteed one night per week when I won't be sitting in the apartment feeling sorry for myself. And I always feel better and sleep better after training.

      6. I check local event calendars for things I want to do and invite a friend to join me. If no one can go, I will go by myself but so far, that hasn't happened! I try to have at least one fun event on my schedule every weekend.

      7. I meditate. As others have said here, it truly helps with perspective and peacefulness.

      8. I listen to music. My ex didn't like most of my music so I didn't listen to it openly when we were married (I used my headphones a lot and that was annoying.) Now, I turn on Pandora on the t.v. or listen to my iPod on the speakers and do things around the house.

      9. I have reconnected with old friends. I reached out to people I have almost lost touch with...the ones I was down to only a Christmas card exchange with and let them know, in my first ever Christmas letter, what was happening. As a result, I have plans to spend time with people I haven't seen in the 14 years since I got married, including my very best friend from college!
        It is so very hard to let go of the things we have loved and the things that have caused us pain. It is frightening and exciting to strike out in a new direction. But we do it when we have to, when our spirit tells us it is time.

    What kindness has a stranger done for you that you will never forget? I was young, poor, with 2 small children, and desperately needed a job. I was at the gas station to put $5 in my tank to get me to the interview and back - and I had left my wallet at home. I did not have gas enough to even go back home (I lived in a no-gas station town and had driven into the "big town" to get gas to go to the bigger town). A lady gave me $5 (in those days, that was a 1/2 tank of gas). I told her I could pay her back (and I could), but she said to pay it forward when I could afford it, because she knew I would be able to some day. I try and pay it forward all the time. I didn't get the job, but she has made my life so much richer. Edited to say: Thank you for sharing (I can't reply to my own post any more?)! Goes to show that the little things DO count. Continued Blessings!

      @karlau A long, long time ago, in a land far, far away (called West Virginia), I was a 19 year old college student. It was spring semester and I was pregnant and due to give birth the day after final exams. I could barely walk the campus, I gained 75 lbs! One look and it was obvious I was with child. And my professors ever mentioned it. It was a very small school, I had been to dinner at some of their houses! I'd see these profs all the time, on and off campus. Finally, about a week before school let out, my advisor asked me how I was doing and if I needed anyone to talk to. I was almost in tears (hormones?) but so grateful to be "seen". I will never forget how this prof made me feel, like I wasn't invisible. Such a small gesture, 27 years ago, and I still remember it to this day.

      @karlau I have been blessed; there are many, but this one has always stood out, for its kindness, acceptance and prescience!

      I lived in The City in my 20's. There was much about that period of time that was wonderful, everything was opening before me, but I was also struggling with some existential things.

      I used to go in to work on weekends, to make some extra money. I felt the pinch of poverty keenly at that point in my life in ways I never had growing up, even though we were always poor. Daily, in The City, I needed only commute to work in one of The City's toniest, most affluent neighborhoods to be reminded of the disparity between classes.

      One afternoon, a young man who lived in one of the apartments above the office where I worked stuck his head in to say hello to me, as he was wont to do. We had a good rapport. Apparently I didn't greet him with my customary enthusiasm because he asked me what was wrong. I said "Oh, I just feel like a daisy in a rose garden today.........." We both laughed, and he went on his merry way to law class, and I went back to work.

      A few hours later he returned, with a big bouquet of....daisies!!!! Many men over the years have made gestures large and small, but that stands out, hands down, as the best ever. Ever........

      I send him love in every direction whenever I think of this. I don't know where he is now, but I hope he has had a beautiful life.

      And, indeed, I am very content to be the daisy in the rose garden, the wildflower among the forced-grown hothouse flowers and the cultivated.

      @karlau The one I remember most clearly was a long, long time ago (1980!) I had gone to Houston to visit my boyfriend from college (he graduated a year ahead of me and moved out there). It was pretty clear after a few days that this was going to be our last time together. Not that we had a bad time, just that we had grown apart. After two weeks, we said a tearful goodbye at the airport and I boarded my plane to go home. I couldn't stop crying. My seatmate was a wonderful woman from Detroit...I still remember her name: Jeanette Cherry. She offered me comfort and compassion throughout the flight and gave me a little book she had with her that was full of encouragement. She told me wonderful stories about her life, including one about Stevie Wonder before he was famous! I have never forgotten that flight and her kindness. It was a healing moment with a stranger.

      @stephanie I am sadly done having children now, but I so desperatly wanted to name one of my daughters back then Scarlett, after my favourite book and heroine Scarlett O'Hara, back then my last name was Hamilton so then I would have named her Scarlett Olivia Hamilton and the intitals would be the same, sadly I was out voted by husband and his family. So when my daughters were pregnant we were discussing "what names did you pick back then Mum?" I told them the Scarlett Olivia Hamilton ( My Dads middle name was Oliver so Olivia was a tribute to him!) story and how my inlaws and ex husband their Father had voted against me, so daughter number two who was due first named my Grand daughter Scarlett Olivia Hamilton. She lives with us and I have to confess she is the love of my life but oh MY Goodness... academy award winner coming up, she takes after her famous name sake with throwing the best tantrums!

      @hopeslife Haha there are lots of things I hope God gives me in Heaven... my dream home that is exclusively mine (doesn't seem likely, as it is a somewhat selfish wish), my version of a perfect body (I wonder about this, because I haven't looked after my earth body properly and have worried that the damage is irreversible, and I'm like, would God punish me for being greedy and eating too much here and having bingo wings and potential loose skin if I do lose weight, or would he want to meet my heart desires and be forgiving or my laziness and gluttony while on Earth?), I want to have all the experiences in Heaven that I missed out on Earth like travel to the places I wanted to see (Don't think this will happen because Heaven will be a totally different experience and a lot of the stuff on Earth is worship to other Gods!!!) and the ability to eat whatever I want (I think what I want to eat may change, we were all originally Vegans in the garden of Eden, I would really miss chicken and chocolate and all the foods that taste good because of the chemicals they add- I don't trust God like I should to provide the same thing, I know he would offer something better but I feel like I would still crave the old things. I have thought about becoming a vegan here, as I could have almond milk or something, but its so expensive!!!). The other thing I hate about Heaven, is the majority of people apparently won't be there!!! I wish everyone went through a cleansing process and if someone was really bad it just took them 100 billion times longer to get cleared for Heaven, like they got moderate punishment for 100 billion years and spent every day doing acts of kindness for their victims, as well as taking classes on empathy. People think I'm this bigoted, hateful person because I'm a Christian, but the truth is, I don't want a single person to suffer or go to Hell, but I feel like we deserve some level of suffering because most of us have inflicted it on others or on God. Anyway, Heaven should be epic whatever it is! I actually believe in ''The New Jerusalem'' which is when we live on a newly generated Earth without sin, where Heaven comes down and becomes a city on Earth.

      @stephanie Oh, I'm sure Heaven will be most epic! I believe everything is reversible, and I don't want to see people go to Hell either. Lol I actually tried to bring a Muslum into the faith. He was having none of it, and kept badgering me about how I should wear my hair, etc. When we were having conversations, and he'd ask what I was doing, I'd be like, "oh, I'm reading the bible right now." Lol he caught me in the morning when I usually do those things. Unfortunately, he wanted to do video calls and kept complaining about how bad they were, when he knew I couldn't help it. Not only that, I couldn't take the calling 2-3 times a day, and the constant chatting on Facebook messenger. I ended up pointing him to a local church, and blocking him.

      @ahorrasi I was on the old 43T from 2007, quite active up until 2012 I believe (not sure, but it was several years at least). Somehow it lost its charm and I just stopped going to the site. After a while (2 years maybe?) I wanted to make a come back, but itwas a totally different crowd. It seemed to be muchmore quiet and alot of the people I'knew' were gone. I never got back to enjoying it as much as the first years. Then it stopped, I registered at PopClogs, but never made an entry. I might have made a list of goals, I shall check, because I'm too curious myself actually haha.

      I was also in the secret 43T facebookgroup for a while, but didn't want to out myself and to be honest I found it a bit weird to have faces and real names for some of the users. I like the mystery of 43T and its (some at least) users. If an user is active you do know quite a lot about them because they take you on a tour of their life through their goals, yet you don't know the person itself. The anonymousity makes me speak out here more easily then I would under my real name. So I also left the groups.

      I knew when to get back because I've been informed through a friend and fellow43T-er. I think they knew through facebook. Signed up for the info mail and got an e-mail saying they were up and running on feb. 12th. And that is that. :)

    since everyone appears to be over here right now, I'm going to ask the same kind of question I asked on the other site. I'm thinking of having my DNA checked by Ancestry.com or 23&Me or another service depending on people's recommendations.
    Has anyone had their DNA analyzed to find out their heritage or ethnicity?
    Which service (s) did you use?
    How long did it take to get results back? Was it what you expected?
    Were you satisfied?

    How do you manage depression? I am struggling to do anything at the moment...

    I have pretty much stopped walking the dogs, my mess piles up around me very quickly, I procrastinate on my homework, I take a long time to get my laundry done, I mostly eat snacks and treats instead of proper meals, I spend too much money on things I can't afford or I shuffle around my budget to buy junk food or takeaways, I go to bed late or stay up all night too often, I let other people cook my meals for me, I nap a lot, I get annoyed being expected to help with childcare and dog walking and I generally feel miserable.

    I feel like most of my life is stuff I have to do, rather than stuff I want to do. When I try to lose weight, I do it in the most miserable way possible, rather than trying to enjoy myself, because I guess I don't think it would be effective.

    I need to get a job, but I struggle to stay awake normal hours and am not convinced anyone would want to employ me.

    The only good things I can say is I have showed up for most of my classes, I work out 3x a week, I shower most days and usually brush my teeth and I enjoy my time on the computer. I've also started catching the bus which is way out of my comfort zone.

      @stephanie Since you're going to school, see if the school has a counseling center or life-coach program? If they teach psych they may have such a thing either for students to get accedited hours or just to help out on campus. Also, in answer to your original question? I do one thing, only one thing a day that pushes me: laundry or pick up a room or go for a walk. One thing. Then I can feel better that I've done that. And I do it again and again. My "push" for this is that my husband supports me, I don't have a regular job either. And it would make me mad if I was making all the $ to see someone else not doing anything, so I make myself push. Sometimes, it's really easy, sometimes it's a total bitch,.

      @jlittle I am interested in the school counselling possibility but I am kind of thinking it might just be for the high school students? I am one of the adult learners. Not sure if they would be qualified to deal with my problems. I wish I could just do one thing a day, but my parents expect me to do more (I live with them and they help with my costs- I pay rent, food and petrol and they pay for any extras)- they expect me to walk the dogs most days, help with my niece, vaccum and hang out washing occasionally and cook dinner a few times a week- for a regular person, it wouldn't be much, but for me, its too much and it makes me feel stressed out. I don't want to cut into time that I have for myself when I am not sleeping, but I wonder, am I being selfish or unrealistic? My family does so much for me, and most people probably only have an hour a day for themselves, and I probably spend at least four hours a day on the computer. I probably need to combine some of my activities (read in the park while I exercise the dogs, watch tv on my laptop while I cook dinner etc). I guess when I'm a certain level of tired, I have enough energy to do leisure activities but not enough to do certain chores? Damn, I sound like a terrible person.

      @hopeslife I wish I knew! I was hospitalized. Had dreams, the dreams upset me because I thought they meant I WAS crazy. Also, the upset of the dreams (you don't have happy ones in a hospital, yes?) was threaded through my day. So, I decided I would forget my dreams, and I did. The same time I also started thinking in words, because images were like a short cut into my emotions. If I knew what I did, I could undo it. Do you know how hard it is to write fiction when you can't "see" what you're writing? (It's nearly impossible.) On the other hand, my dialog is great. But for example one start to my novel (10 pages) someone read and said, "What do these people look like?"

    1. What was your favorite job, and why?  My favorite job was being a Network Operations Center (NOC) operator - printed out giant green-bar paper reports, backed up to 8" reel tape, sneaker-net from one system to another.  I rotated shifts, so different things to do on different shifts.  Always moving around, but no heavy lifting.  A little noisy, sometimes, but I enjoyed working with the equipment and not dealing much with people.  I really like my job now, but the whole management thing does require a lot of people skills and some patience.  Machines just do their thing.  :)

      @karlau  My favorite job was working for the town council helping local people over 75 years of age who needed help completing forms to get council tax benefit and housing benefit and other welfare that they were entitled to. Some could not read or write, others were disabled, others just could not get to the council building to complete the forms. I would go to their homes and complete the forms for them. It was so rewarding and touching to hear their stories.

    1. What is the last thing that you searched for on google, and why? I searched for Bee Keeping because some day I wish to have a bee hive or three.  What about you?

    1. Where is the most interesting place you have been, and why?  I am a garden and plant enthusiast.  The National Botanic Gardens and Arboritum in Washington DC is one of the most interesting places from that perspective.  Funded by taxpayer dollars - and worth it.  Displays of plants from all over the world and from all around the USA are rotated through out the year.  And some old favorites, especially trees, stay rooted in place for decades.  I visit every chance I get.

      @karlau  Ok, I also like to read other peoples ideas and interests :). Think one of the most interesting places I visited is Greenland. It really is a beautiful country and the problems in the world seem so far away there. Planning to go again soon as my boyfriend lives there. 

      I also went to Egypt years ago and went inside the big pyramid of Cheops and that felt very special too. I love the pyramids, the mystery that surround them. At that moment it was the age of the pyramids that overwhelmed me though. Standing and walking inside a building that has survived many centuries. Think about the things it has 'seen'. It is amazing that they were able to build this all those years back.

      @rainbowssparks  That is awesome!  Years ago I had the opportunity to visit the coliseum in Verona, Italy, and I too, was overwhelmed by the antiquity of it all.  My husband and I sat on the very top row of stones.  I loved the smoothness of them.  It was amazing to think that some roman from so long ago also sat on that stone.  Did they imagine that people far into the future would be sitting there?  Thanks so much for sharing!

    Sincere question: I found my old deleted 43t profiles using the web.archive.org website. So weird to see it. I had a lot of accounts over the years and then deleted them from self loathing all those years ago. So interesting to see things I had forgotten but things that are still some small part of me. I like old me and I forgot so many things I used to care about. Should I recreate the goals and entries as the old me or just put them in as the current me?

      @wyverndust wow i was very much like this. I had lots of accounts and deleted them all, whether 6 months or 3 years later. I went to the wayback machine but regretably found very little of my old account - really a shame because I did some great stuff in those years. HOw much did you find?

      I guess an answer to the question would be, how much of what was back then is relevant to who you are today?

      @ahorrasi not much of it, sadly. I was alone when I wrote all of my most creative stuff on 43things. I poured out my heart and over-shared daily. Deleted my accounts a few times from heartbreak and pure self-loathing. Then, when I got into a relationship in 2008, I deleted everything for various reasons. The wayback machine didn't show me a lot of the detailed writings that I would like to save for my own records, but it reminded me of my old style and my old way of thinking. I really was a different person.

      @wyverndust I say keep moving forward. If there is a part of "old you" that you would like to nurture, then write goals that would do just that. But as you said, you weren't really happy back then; why recreate that in any way?

      I was in a very dark place when I came to 43t. And I grew a great deal through my time on the site. But my life has also changed irreversibly since the old site closed; I could never go back to Sabryn as she was back then. I miss parts of her, though. And some day I hope to reclaim them, in some fashion.

      @karlau Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

      -I stick real butter
      -2 cups sugar
      -4 TBSP powdered unsweetened baking cocoa
      -1/2 cup milk

      Bring to boil on medium, let come to full slow boil, then boil for 3 mins. (Much more, the sugar will crystallize too much, much less, the cookies won't "set up" enough later.)

      Remove from heat. MOVE QUICKLY from this point on (have everything already assembled):

      -add 1/4 cup peanut butter or nutella, or any nut butter
      -add 1TBSP real vanilla extract
      MIX til peanut butter melts
      -add 1/4 chopped nuts or coconut if desired

      -last, add 3 cups quick rolled oats, stir to mix, remember, move fast, this mixture sets up very quickly!

      Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper, let cool and harden.

      They're to die for.

      @nicolasc   How awesome!  I finished groundschool and have 13 hours in the left seat.  But then had to stop when my husband re-enlisted and was deployed.  Flew over the Nevada desert at sunrise and watched the sand 700 feet below turn to glitter.  The angle of the sun that does that lasts for less than 5 minutes - but I will remember the moment the sun crested the mountains and turned the blah sand to gold for the rest of my life!

      @karlau  I am passionate about my Grandchildren. I now have four and I watched number 2 and 3 come into the world. I am loving seeing them grow, helping them learn, being a very hands on Grandma, teaching them the same things I taught their Mum'/ when they were little, feeding them healthy foods and little family traditions. I take my Grandma role very seriously.
