people say they often can't tell when I'm joking. I've gotten this at work and with people who know me really well. I think it's really hard to be light and funny when you are as deep and murky as I feel most of the time. But! I still know how to dance and smile and love, it's usually words that get really sticky for me. huh. words. and I'm going to write a book someday. I better study..

My potato leek soup turned into tomato leek soup when I realized I had eaten all my potatoes, ...surprisingly I liked it even more!

yum.

soup rocks. My new goal is to see how many new soups I can cook this fall/winter season.

I've been thinking of The Four agreements -->http://www.toltecspirit.com/<-- and I still love them, and abide by them as much as possible. I think I'm doing a good job, I'm at least out of my comfort zone often and being brave about trying to communicate more precisely and thoroughly, and I am very good at not assuming... yay for me!

full time and benefits are not far away...

And I'm wondering if the screws in my feet would be a pre-existing condition or if I can get them out if I say they are coming lose and hurting me... tremendously...

07:31 pm - completely losing gentle

My edges have been prevalent lately. On the forefront. I'm fully aware of this side of me that not unlike the stereotype of a drunken sailor. This particular character, while interesting, creates problems. I'm looking into this further, but it's been increasingly difficult to maintain my connection with my softness.

"Consider ways to boost your immune system while you are feeling good, instead of waiting until you are under the weather. For the best results, combine rigorous exercise, proper diet and plenty of sleep. Not only will you feel better now, but your wellbeing can be positively impacted for life."

I really like my horoscope this fine morning... even if I do have a perpetual headache.

I'm obsessed with healing.

And I think it's pretty cool that if you switch the letters around LEAH becomes HEAL

    "Trying to change others is about intolerance, which is at the core of so much enmity. We cannot find peace unless we are trying to help others find peace also. It doesn't come when we win battles; it comes when we stop fighting.
    So why not pursue what we really want- to be with those we love, and find more time for joy and rest? If these are what we want, here's where the change can begin. One of the things I ask people at my lectures to do is spend twenty-four hours without sharing a word of gossip. Don't say anything negative about anyone, and don't say anything to anyone that has potential to hurt them. Do that for twenty-four hours and see how you feel at the end of the day. "And" I say to my audience, "please trust me: At the end of the day, you have been a peacemaker."
   It might be an interesting way to become the change that we wish to see in the world."

"...exposure causes shame, exposure can heal it too.  And when that happens, it is a very freeing experience."
