"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'.

I can't take a breather between messages. You want ME to wait 360 seconds. Are you serious with this Tony...

Man I'm playing don't take that seriously. My mom's having a dinner party this evening which means I'll have to abandon the computer and socialize with a bunch of mostly unknown people. :dropjaw:

It's all good though because both my tennis coaches are coming. One of them is just as narcissistic as me if not more so. We get along great because of our shared sense of humor. :evillaugh: And my other coach is just the nicest guy in the world. They're gonna meet my pets, play table tennis, Gamecube, and all that good stuff. Yup....

I'm going to see Farenheit 9/11 this eveing. It should be interesting. Meanwhile, my positive is I worked on a household repair project all morning with my son and NPD did not come up once. We talked sports, college, work, but no NPD. It sounds like progress to me.

For the past five days I have followed a routine of starting each morning by soaking in the tub and than meditating for 45 minutes. I feel as though my body is slowly reconnecting with itself. To celebrate I've added even more toys to the community. One can never have too many toys.

Hmmm, thought I posted this, but probably got stung by the 360 second monster and didn't bother paying enough attention to realize it. Anyway, what I said was something like this...

Mattt, you keep us all young.

I took my 5 year old and my 3 1/2 year old on an overnight camp to the local park. We pitched the tent, played, cooked over the open fire and just generally had a really good time. It was a lot of work by myself, but definately worth it I believe. It will probably take me all week to get everything back in order but I just don't care. My baby boys are worth the trouble.

Have a great day!

Mel

Hmm, who created this 360 second monster anyway? It can be a royal pain in the ass. :angeldevil: Oh well, I'm having a good morning because i actually go everything done last night that I spent all day avoiding. So I have some time to play today. :cookiemonster: A healthy playtime is an important part of healing. :bubblebath:

My cat came back. Actually, I had to go out and look for him. But 5 blocks from home there he was. Who knew. My kids will be very happy. They have been missing him.

Have a great day!

Its great to hear your cat returned, Mel. :partyfrog: I know that animals are important part of this thing we call life.

I'm inspired by the chat with Dr. Hamilton last night. It never ceases to amaze me how talking with him for even a short period of time rejuvinates my spirit. I believe in this little thing called HOPE, its what life is all about.

My ex husband called me late last night and informed me that he is starting to conclude that something is wrong with him. To use his words he said he feels as though he is not complete, something is missing. Without any prodding from me he has re-entered therapy. This is at least his second go around and there may well be some I don't know about. I'm celebrating this moment and wondering if this is really the time when its all for real. :dance:
