Positive Prayers

My best friend Jenny taught me about positive prayers a couple of weeks ago.
I don't know if there is such a thing as praying 'wrongly', but I may have been close to praying the wrong way until I learnt this the other week.
Before I would plead to God like this:
"Please please please please please please God will you make my winter be a better one.  I know I ALWAYS get depressed even more every winter, and I don't want to end up in The Lakes again.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I BEG OF YOU HELP ME!".
Now, I know God hears every prayer, but I know a better way to pray now.
Now I say " Dear God, I want to thank you for making my last winter a blessing, I know that the winters with depression are gone, and this Christmas will be joyous for me and all my family and friends...".
And what a difference a positive prayer makes to my mood!!!  I don't feel like I am burdening God, and I do feel, well, positive!!
I finally had time to share this bit of news with you, and I don't want you thinking you've been praying the wrong way, either! Just know that when you pray a positive prayer, God will actually lift your mood and you will feel feel the benefits!
Have a blessed day!
Lizzie!

Recent news

So I haven't been blogging for a while.
My sister in law is a lovely person, and I can see that she and my brother are in love!  It's nice to see my brother is in love!
My cpn left, I was heartbroken.  I'm still upset.  It's hard to lose someone that I've seen once a week for 3 years.  I got a basket of flowers delivered to her workplace just before she left, and she loved them!
But she gave me much more over the years, and I hope she will have such a happy retirement.
My new cpn, is also lovely, in a different way.  Right now she is in Amsterdam taking part in a marathon!

I get more depressed during the winter months and my new cpn said she has plans for me! She wants me to keep me busy and plans than I see another worker to help me use the buses (that reminds me, I got my bus pass!  Valid for 5 years!) on my own, and that will take some doing as I never get on buses without my mother.
She wants me to go to the personality disorder place once a week.  After I 'graduate' from my psychologist sessions, I will be getting once a week counselling sessions there, too.

A BIG change is I made a friend this week!  She lives in the same block of flats that I do, also knows about isolation, and, after knowing me for 5 minutes invited me to flatsit for her!  Which I'm doing right now!  It's great fun!
It's so great to know that I - ME - actually made a friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She is a bit younger, 26, and said I look her age too, now THAT'S a friend lol.

So that's my news.  I hope Sheila, Jenny and Alison get to read this!  Let me know if you do!  I sometimes wonder if I am writing to myself!  (which may not be a bad thing lol)

Buh Bai!
