I am now approximately 32 hours into cold-turkey recovery from my FB Politics addiction and I have managed to survive. It hasn’t been easy, but as many of us know, it’s about one day at a time. I have also watched less than 15 minutes of TV during the same period. There is hope for me.
This day has been filled with ups and downs, offers, and refusals.
This “sleep thing” seems to be getting worse by the night.
I’m participating in Zoom meetings during the next two evenings and one of the participants for Tuesday called me tonight (Monday) and said he couldn’t get in. So, at least I’m not the only one getting my days mixed up.
My Gmail account is down on all three of my devices. The last email I received was at 11:42 this morning and I wish it never came as it was a note that saddened me. Now, I wait for the 200 or so messages floating through the ether to drop in a big batch. . . maybe?
While working this morning, I had my old, classic iPod shuffling through the 6,437 songs (updated total) and this song came up and a smile came to my face. I knew it was going to be blog fodder. It is a song written when I was 17 years old, but it’s a story about my adult life.
From 1977, the double, live album by REO Speedwagon, “You Get What You Play For” and as Kevin introduces it. . . “We’re doin’ a song now from the new album and it’s about feelin’ better, it’s called “Keep Pushin”
Any REO fans out there?
“Keep Pushin On'”
I found other things to keep my mind on
And I’m gettin to know myself a little bit better
Whoa , I keep pushin on
Keep pushin on, yeah
Goin through all the changes I made so many mistakes, oh yes I did
Tryin to leave behind the heartaches
And sometimes I think I was a little bit crazy, oh yeah
Whoa, I keep pushin on[Chorus:]
Keep pushin, keep pushin, keep pushin, keep pushin on
Keep pushin, keep pushin, you know you have got to be so strong
Keep pushin, keep pushin, well even if you think your strength is gone
Keep pushin on
Well it’s comin together I finally feel like a man, oh yes I do
I never thought that I’d be where I am, oh
Everyday I wake a little bit higher
Whoa I keep pushin on, oh yeah
