"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'.

The anger I had toward my T person is beginning to change to a determination to get better so I can show him who I really am.

I had a mother-to-daugher talk with my nine year old who confessed that she has a crush on a nine-year old boy who attend our church and her school. My husband, eldest son (22 yr.) and my ex (her dad) have expressed their feelings against this type of talk by telling her that she cannot date until after she's old enough to leave home.

I told her that this is not realistic and that I will listen, advise and teach her whatever she needs. On my way out to work this morning, she ran after me and told me she loved me and gave me a kiss on each cheek. That feels so good!

Peace & balance,

Nandi

Last night I had dinner with my Mother. It was tense but cordial. We are beginning to look at some painful issues so everytime we get together I have this feeling all heck could break out. Last night was nice and I enjoyed it. I really hope we can build on it.

Hey all-
Life, sorry about your daughter. I like what you said about enjoying your meeting anyway. I am finally leaning that I can be really grieving and sad about one thing and still enjoy other things without repressing my feelings-- and I only had to wait until I had been 29 for seven years before I understood that! So understanding that finally, like Life, is a positive step.

Also, made extraordinary progress in marriage counseling yesterday, according to our counselor. I have to admit, I didn't really see it, but my gut tells me something really did happen in there to feel good about.

Ive actually been having fun trying to figure this out. Stuff like what does it mean to preheat oven. :newtonguesmile: Oh God I'm in trouble but this should be a good night othe then the food.

Blu- its good to here your starting therapy and things are looking up.

Keeping good thoughts for you and your daughter Life.

Another insane week is over and I about to leave for a meditation class. I decided I needed all the help I can get in relaxing. Tomorrow morning is the time I set aside to spend time with my son just catching up on what we've missed through the years. Its kind of like looking in the rearview mirror and seeing what I should have seen the first time. Its painful but at least we are talking and trying to avoid going through a whole life of being strangers. I consider this to be a positive step.

Hooray Linda!!! I'm so tickled to hear that it's all working out for you!

I know what you mean about the coffee, Tc. There is no intelligent life for me without it. I want a caffeine IV with a timer so I can jet out of bed in the mornings.

Taran! You hug-a-holic :biggrin: Let us know how dinner turns out.

I love the term "T person" HeWho. Everytime I think of my therapist now, I think of her as my T person.

Your daughter is very lucky to have you, Nandi.

Trust your gut feelings, Hestia. I'm tickled for you.

I firmly believe that working through the pain sets us free, Jimmie. You and your son have soooo much to gain. It is indeed a positive step.

My boss told me tonight that my temp job will most likely last 12-18 months!!! YA-BLOODY-HOOOO!!!! It is a tremendous relief. Damn! A regular paycheck ... what a novel idea!

Jeeze ... a bed and a job in one week LOL

Cheers!
Life

An anthology that I was very involved in producing has just been awarded Ist Prize as best 'self-published anthology' in New South Wales for 2001/2002. :claphands:

It was commissioned by a local writers' group and I did the lay-out (there were lots of illustrations) as well as taking some of the photos and being the editor. It was published in 2001 and it was only the second book that I had ever had the sole responsibilty for producing so I am over the moon at getting the prize! :biggrin:

Congratulations on the job, Life! It sounds as tough life might be looking up for you. :smile:

It seems like I spent most of last night trying to get a journel going, again. I don't like to journel so much that I found myself doing housework. :shocked: Maybe I should post a picture of my house to give you a clue of what a newsflash this is. I finally settled down and did some writing. It felt good but I know it will be a struggle to keep it going for an extended time. I will try to focus on the positives of the journel because it does make me feel good to write things out and reflect on them. I will have a positive attitude about my new journel.

Last night I hung out with the guy who tried so hard to help me on my work around the house. It was the first time in a long time we just chilled and had a beer. I don't mind him being around if he is not trying to do stuff that he really has no clue what he's doing. Its cool to just talk about stuff. I wish I got the chance to do more of that.


I'll try this sociable thing. Good news on the book Balbrenny.
