"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'.

Working on a Sunday, Mel? This is not a good thing. :cry: I don't think I could ever have that much dedication.

Sorry to say I'm not a fan of reality shows. I feel a since of emptiness around the end of the NFL season. Maybe we need another one of those cyber hugs?

Speaking of hugs--I didn't slug my Mom when she hugged me announced this morning. That might be a first and a big step.

I was playing my Gamecube after school today and I devastated both Jigglypuff and Pikachu in a massive 100-life match of Smash Brothers. Hey, somebody has to keep those pokemon in order.

Anyway, the moral here is that it's fun to do stupid stuff on occasion that distracts one from the same-old same-old of daily life. Have some fun!

You know, of course, where this other world lies hidden. It is the world of your own soul that you seek. Only within yourself exists that other reality for which you long. I can give you nothing that has not already its being within yourself... All I can give you is the impulse, the key. I can help you to make your own world visible. That is all.

My day got started at 1:45 in the morning when the parent of one of the kids I work with called to say that his son had just been arrested for breaking into some parked cars. So I got to make an early morning trip into the detention center. I came home to find the electricty off (it just came back on). Other than that things are going really well. My positive is that I feel more or less relaxed. These are things I have no control over so there is no point in losing a lot of time being mad. This has not been an easy lesson for me to learn but I seem to be slowly making progress.

I haven't seen Balbrenny here for a day or so. She must be off sunbathing at the beach. BTW, its snowing here, again. Now i have my daily allotment of whinning out of the way.....

Yesterday was a crazy day and the bes thing I can about it was that I made time at the end to soak and stated this morning with a half-hour meditation. Life looks better this morning. It feels good to remember to take care of myself when things are not going so hot, so to speak.

We had our first quiz of the semester in abnormal psych, I got an A. Its kind of nice to have a class that I've been studying for my entire life. Its funny because most the people here seem to be trying to figure out what's wrong with them. The future therapists of the world! :smile:

My positive is that I am so darn sad and grieving... At the gym, the instructor talked about sledding this weekend with her family and her neighbors, and all I could think is, "That's it. That's the life I thought I was going to have with my husband." You know, having fun, not worrying, letting the weekend be the weekend, doing things with other people. Instead, I spent that same day reading The Emotionally Abused Woman and trying to dig out of the mess that is my bedroom and kitchen, because when I get sad and grieving I get very sloppy. But at some point today, it hit me that this is what feeling your feelings is all about. I don't need to wallow over much-- I have childcare for tomorrow so I can clean things up a bit-- but yesterday's marriage counseling was hard and it's ok to spend some time just mourning. In a weird way, I think this is one of my biggest positives yet.

Hes, I know how you feel about the weekend of fun. I used to take my boys to the beach and watch all the "families" play, while I was doing the single mom thing. This was long before my ex ever left. Even when we were together he was never around and I always felt like I was a misfit.

Anyway, on to my positive. I got my computer system back up and running with only about a 1/2 day delay in monthend. Haven't got all the bugs out yet, but everybodies working away. Part brains, part pure luck.

Where is that darn Balbrenny? She better not be getting a tan while I'm up here freezing my ying yang off! We've got about 3 1/2 feet of snow and -30 Celcius temperatures (-40 with the windchill!). It's supposed to warm up to - 20 tomorrow!

Later,

Mel

Hes now might be a good time to bring up that my therapist believes healing is fun. Just thought I'd throw that out and hope you have some fun.

We should have some kind of discipline for people getting tans while there is still snow on the ground here in the frozen lands. i'm beginning to think the North Pole has slipped down to Idaho.

I've had to work hard the last couple of days so I rewarded myself last night with a long soak, played a video game, meditated and went to bed. The letters NPD never entered my tired brain. Kind of nice.

My lawyer tells me it looks as though things will work out in the aftermath of my problems last week. He had a discussion w/ the DA and they seem willing to drop one charge of solitication and only press the drug charge. They're willing to plea to probation on that since I'm in therapy. This won't be final until it goes to court in about a month but I'm going to grab it. It might be an odd positive but I think it qualifies.
