Opening Post

Keep On Keepin’ On

Well, we survived the move without either of us going into a manic episode, which is great news, don’t you think?

I LOVE my new house! It’s a log cabin house, with exposed rafters and hardwood floors and everything. It’s so “country” looking, and I feel so at home in it. I feel so at peace.

So everything is in its place, and all the hassle has died down. So now what?

What do you do when you’re coming down from some big event and now things are quiet?

What do you do when things are just going along and nothing special is happening?

First of all, you praise the Lord that there are no crises in your life at the moment!

Then you just keep on keepin’ on.

That’s right. You just keep going. You do what’s in front of you to do.

You don’t look for trouble. The Bible says, “Don’t worry about tomorrow. Today has enough troubles of its own.”

You take care of what needs to be taken care of today. You take care of yourself and your bipolar disorder.

An old Amish saying is “Do ye next thing.” I really abide by that, because it’s like saying, “Do one thing at a time,” and most times that’s all I can handle, otherwise I will get overwhelmed.

And when I get overwhelmed, I will either shut down and get depressed…

Or I will get triggered into a manic episode.

And neither one of those is a good option for me.

So I am grateful for those periods when things are just going along with no crises in sight. I’m glad when things are peaceful.

Aren’t you?

Wishing you joy and stability,

Remember God loves you and so do I,
Michele
