"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'.

Matters in general are so bad now that I am going to have to take drastic action tomorrow. Incidentally, I am going to see a psychiatrist next Friday.

Oh man, this is really gonna sound disgustingly sweet...

I was in the grocery store (at the end of the longest line due to a new cashier in training), and my toddler was super ill from missing her nap. A little boy (looked to be about three years old), walked up to my daughter who was sitting in our cart and let her play with the balloon his mother was buying for him. Well, the mother switched to a shorter line, and the little boy walked away with her. Of course that made my daughter worse, until tears were sreaming down her face. The little boy ventured back a couple of times to let her play with it, but finally had to return to his mother. I had figured they were already gone, and I was paying the cashier when I felt someone tugging on my shirt. I turned and looked down, and the little boy was holding his balloon up to me. I looked up and his mother said, "He wants to give her his balloon." I replied "oh no, she's fine...he doesn't need to do that." He then looked up at me and asked "Please?" His mother said "Please let him, it will hurt his feelings if you don't." Of course my daughter got this huge smile on her face, and was suddenly out of her ill mood for the rest of the afternoon.

It moved me; such a small child giving so much of himself. His younger sister still had her balloon while he walked out of the store without his.

How many kids today do you know that would do that? It gives me hope.

Hey Basher, I'm excited to hear you're getting in to see a professional. Let us know how it goes.;

I plead the fifth when it comes to all this talk about being neat. :dance:

The good news is the blind date went pretty oaky. We actually found that we have some stuff in common and I think we both had a good time. I know I did. Right now I'm trying to get enough courage together to ask if she wants to go out again.

I am learning the complex art of communication with family members without judging right or wrong. Kind of the heart of attitudinal healing all wrapped into a series of brief and rather and intense lessons. So far it seems to be going okay. Hopefully this is a trend that will last.

Last night my ex-husband apologized for something I didn't even know for sure he had done. This is the first time I can him admitting a mistake without some hidden motive. I almost fainted. This is a big step forward.

I spoke my mind at a company meeting yesterday afternoon and was surprised that people were pretty receptive to what I had to say. My old ways of allowing fear to assume the worst have usually left me pretty speechless at these sessions. :nshowingrestraint: Maybe this is the beginning of a new era? I can only hope.

Last night was spent with my inner child helping my niece and nephew get ready for Halloween. Let's just say that we are going to be very ready

The person I went on a blind date with last Saturday called me and asked if I wanted to go out tonight. :cookiemonster: Life is good!

This morning started with my youngest greeting me at the breakfast table with a request that I volunteer in his class next quarter. It seems that each quarter they ask three parents to help out once a week by listening to the kids read to them for an hour. My son says he wants the other kids to see he has a cool dad. :gloat: I think I can spare an hour.
