Taking the high road!

I just wanted to say hello to all of you! Also wanted to say that each of us has a right to feel exactly what we feel ! Sort through it and hopefully move forward as quickly as possible! I hope everyone of you is feeling a bit stronger and more empowered today!

I once had a therapist that described healing this way: She said it's like a big bucket of dirty water that we add one tablespoon of clean water to at a time! Eventually there will only be clean water in the bucket! But, it won't happen over night! Also depends on how fast we add the clean water!

So, we each own our power ! Some of us use it at warp speed and some of us prefer the Flintstone car method! We'll all get there though! Just gotta do it! Godspeed to each of you!

Hey, Sweetie! You take your road and I'll take my road! Deal?? ROFL Sure it is.

Sorry I missed you last night! With this nasty laryngitis I'm not all up to par. Pair that with the meeting with GB yesterday and the business itself, hey, it gets a little hectic. My phone's been dying on me at least once a day and sometimes twice. That definitely adds to the frustration! At least, I've got a pretty good handle on how this new board set up works. Don't think I'd be able to handle just that much more stress at the moment! LOL

Hope to catch you tonight!

Nice thought:)

Too bad all too often it doesnt play out that way.....as long as Flintstones car has GAS in it it moves..FAR too many have stalled..and at the age of 80 they are still pining away over someone..or some people who were addicts 60 years are still addicts..some drunks at 15 are drunks at 85.

Its nice to THINK when life hands lemons you can ALWAYS make lemonade..but I have seen women pretty darn OLD....like the one poster said a long time ago..some sea hag smelling like mothballs..STILL talking and wondering about some guy that got away back in WW2 and STILL doing a pining away with a sweet song in her heart of memories.

Its GREAT to think all women will find inner strength....as I see more in life thouygh..I realize you cant draw water..dirty OR clean from an empty bucket.....and some will still look to another man to keep their bucket filled.

And if they hadnt any water to begin with....always thinking HEYYYYYY..I can draw from my well...when they pull up that last load of dust LOOKING for water they wake UP.

I forgot..and it also depends on how much time ya got adding a teaspoon to a bucket versus a cup.

If you are going to live till youre 150 and got a guarantee of that..then HEY..a teaspoon works GREAT....LOL....if you have no idea HOW long ya have..want a great life..a whole one...and dont want to be bailing like a fiend till ya wear out? You either bail REALLY fast.

You get a BIGGER cup.

Or wise up and empty the bucket completely..taake the dirty bucket to the well..wash it..and fill it with clean and with a jug not a teaspoon.

The other way seems SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO exhausting.

Sure A, a teaspoon is a slower way to go. Works though! You seem to enjoy playing the old "GOOD COP" "BAD COP" routine with me. Glad to see my positive attitude amuses you so much LOL! LOL! The one thing I've learned in life is that kicking someone while they are down never works for me! Never! I'm proud to be positive! I also have my negative moments like every other human being on earth! But, I will leave this earth with a smile on my face and unconditional love overflowing my heart! I am curious about something? How come you don't reply to the requests for the positive things much?

We do each OWN OUR POWER! The people that are stuck chose to be stuck! I believe that positive reinforcement helps people stand up and dust themselves off! I'll be interested to see if you have the cajones to meet my challenge I posted above? Do you or do you just like to criticize me? Whatever you choose is fine! Because I am 100% willing to allow you to be you! Godspeed!
