I've recently been involved in an interesting email conversation. It's interesting because I rarely find myself in this particular role/position... as older sister. Also curious because at last count I had 8 or 9 younger half or step siblings. There's a reason I don't have children. I don't want to be in the position of providing advice to others. Quite frankly I don't believe I'm qualified.
I rarely seek advice, either, personally. I don't find that most people give useful advice. Not their fault really, it's just basically impossible for anyone to really understand any situation from "my Moccasins." I do have a great therapist whom I see occasionally. She's awesome but it's a rare find and we've spent years getting to know each other. I do have a few trusted friends I can consult on occasion too...
Anyway... I find myself being exceedingly cautious and intrigued at the same time. What a great learning opportunity!
What's up for me? Asking questions! This is a good chance to ask more questions. The Gift of Good Questions... =) It's challenging.
I've also been hearing and seeing and dreaming a lot about self control, will power and self discipline lately. Excellent! Even when listening to a food pod cast, The Splendid Table.
Canister quote for the day - 2 for 1 today:
"Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything."
"Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result they get better answers." Anthony Robbins.
THAT WAS NOT PLANNED!! I swear I reached into the canister, dug around deep and those two just happened to come out!! I LOVE LIFE! Yeah!
What shall I forgive this day to amuse and delight?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
