"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Bad weather conditions resulted in both of my morning appointments being canceled. :ohwell: So I have a chance to catch up on the six feet of paperwork and and generally have a laid back morning. I've menitoned a lack of fondness for cold weather but sometimes a nice cup of coffee and a sweater can make even the coldest day feel warm inside.

I could live with a couple of cancellations this morning. Actually its not been too bad, at least for a Monday. :biggrin: An interesting thing happened on the way to work this morning. A stranger came up and asked for directions. Usually I try to avoid this kind of encounter--too many years living in the city. Today I smiled and looked the man in the eye without feeling anxiety of small talk. My outlook on life is more relaxed and this is just one area where I see the change.

This board is the first place I go to in the mornings - you guys all post during the night when I'm asleep and it's soooo exciting to read about all the great things that people are achieving. Thanks Tc for starting the board and congratulations to everybody for all the wonderful stuff.

It's Tuesday morning here in Oz and today is Melbourne Cup Day. For those that don't know Melbourne Cup is the 'Horse Race That Stops a Nation'. Literally. When the gates are opened at 3pm this afternoon, everything stops. Even debates in Parliament are stopped. Everybody watches the Cup. I've lived in the UK and this is much bigger than any horse race there.

So today I'm going out with some friends for Melbourne Cup Lunch - getting dresed up and wearing silly hats. Going to the local Bowling Club, which serves as the focal point for a lot of things in our community. There will be sweeps and raffles and drinking (hey, my car's in the garage - I don't need to think about driving!) and fun.

I'm looking forward to it all!

I lived in the south of the US for a while, and I just have to say, y'all make my day!

I am adjusting to my husband living somewhere else differently than I thought I would. So far it just feels so relaxing! I hadn't realized how I worried about what the effect of every little thing I did would be on him. The house is somehow more cluttered and yet cleaner! Spent some time this morning in the yard with our son, playing on his swing set. Hearing him giggle with glee, I knew that, at least for now, he is doing better too.

It's been a while since I heard a good y'all. I needed that :biggrin:

I found myself in the unusual position of being asked to help resolve a dispute between two of my co-workers. My boos said I seem like the most level-headed person in the office. :wtf: Kind of makes you want to do business with us tomorrow now dosen't it? :ego: I think this was a compliment but I'm not sure how I reached this place of maturity???

Hestia, I noticed a tremendous difference in my overall feeling of well being when I first started living away from my husband during the week. I hadn't realized the tremendous stress I was under.

I'm so tickled for you Tc, Jimmie, Linda, Bikerboy, and Zach!!! Good stuff!!

I had a great first day at work. The boss and the gal who is training me made sure to not over load me with too much info. I got to spend the afternoon on my own "playing" in the electronic files. There are tons of them!!! It was a very relaxing day.

Best of all ... a Job Club buddy came to my office this afternoon with a card signed by all of Job Club and WorkSource staff memebers AND a jar of Hershey's kisses to use as "bribes" for my new co-workers. I was so wonderfully surprised and touched (not teched LOL).

Yahoo!!!
Cheers!
Life

This afternoon I saw the parents of a kid who came through our program several months ago and they told me this kid who the justice system was about ready to write off was now going to go school every day, active in basketball and bringing home B's on his report card. No drugs, no confrontations. His Mom gave me a hug that was a little uncomfortable but it still feels great to know this person is moving forward and healing. It gives me hope for myself and others.

Glad to hear the job is going well, Life.

Hestia, I can only imagine the strangeness of not having your husband in the house. I went through a nasty dvorce from the perspective of a kid and I know it was painful.

Balbrenny, so who won the race? :biggrin: DId I win anything?

Syon2k1- Letting go of judgments is a big part of the work we are doing in the healing process. Its not always easy but its rewarding.

Hooray!! My horse won!! 'Makybe Diva' won!

I won enough to cover for my lunch and drinks - so I had a lovely day out for free!!

And I won a lucky door prize - a bottle of champagne, four champagne glasses, a voucher for a haircut and some lollipops. So this afternoon, I'm feeling fine, even although my car is still not fixed.

Fantastic news on the job, Life

Hestia, one of the first things I noticed after my ex left was how much less stressed I felt. I had not realised how much I lived my life to fit in with the way he wanted things done, just so that I did not upset him. Now I am learning to be myself and to get to know myself and that is wonderful.

Zachery, I think that was a fantastic compliment. Well done!

Syon, great to have you here.

Last night my son allowed me to hug him. I know this is not easy for him. Heck its not easy for either of us which makes the moment special.
