"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'.

My anxiety level is high because this afternoon I interview to be accepted into the Univeristy of Washington's Graduate School (I checked and it turns out there accredited and everything :npdhumor:smile: . This is one of the forces that was moving me to relocate to this area. I've decided to seek my Masters in Criminal Justice. If I'm accpeted I'll probably start either this summer or next fall. I have a plan beyond this but let's keep it one step at a time. I'm rather on edge today to its a good thing I can work off energy during Tae Kwon Do this afternoon. All of this is just one more step in the goal of becoming a real person.

I see things have reached the holiday fevor around here. I guess that's a good thing. I have been feeling feelings lately and its really got me thinking. All of which I believe falls under the category of positive step toward healing.

Last night I found out the painful way that a seven year-old most definitely knows exactly how many lego pieces he has and becomes very upset if they are not all there. This lesson came as a result of another round of babysiting my nephew. We looked and looked without finding the missing piece. Things were looking bleak and he was very cranky until Monday Night football came on. All of the sudden he forgot about the legos and was concentrating on football. Things became eeirly quiet very quickly. And who says football does not serve as asource of healing energy :npdhumor:

I have been on a mission to get things organized and cleaned up around my apartment and for my business, and I am making some progress in the last week or so. Hopefully this means I am getting things organized in my head as well. :npdhumor:

Another positive is that although the Eagles didn't play this week, Tony, they remain undefeated, 4-0. :nahnah: Anyway, good luck with your grad school application and with Tae Kwon Do.

Happy belated Canuck Thanksgiving, Mel :cookiemonster:

CoolBlonde,after you finished getting your life organized you're welcome to organize mine. :evillaugh:


Yesterday I completed the first step in my White Belt phase of Tae Kwon Do. I know my form and managed to do it without seriously injuring myself or others. I'm really enjoying this and I think its helping my mind/body coordination.

I like the idea of keeping track of positives. I have to comment on something that happened this week tha t might be the biggest positive in a relationship. Zach took the garbage out Monday night without me reminding him or anything. Every other guy I've ever dated has acted like putting out the trash was below them, but Zach got right in there and got his hands dirty. I love it and love him even more :loveya:

Please try to remember I have an image to protect here. I don't want people thinking I'm soft :crazy:

My positive is that I really feel comfortable, maybe even at peace with my love being here. Maybe there really is hope for me after all. :bigtimetrouble:

Oh great, now I suddenly have this tremendous feeling of guilt because last night as my sister was helping me organize the kitchen she found a loaf of green moldy bread stashed behind some other stuff on the kitchen cabinetr . Some might have thought I've not lived here long enough for green moldy bread, but that just goes to show what a person can do once he puts his mind to it. :dance:

My positive for the week is that I completed my kicks in Tae Kwon Do for my white belt. I'm moving at a faster pace than I thought, and its really helping me feel good about who I am. Life is good. :cookiemonster:

Hmm, I do hope little Zackie is not setting a dangerous precedent of being warm and sensitive :evillaugh:

I have agreed to go on a blind date tonight. Its the first real social life type of thing I've done since school started. I hope I still regard it has a positive this time tomorrow.
