Like a banana

"Time flies like the wind,

But fruit flies like a banana."

Another week has passed.

Most of it, I spent online having fun when I was supposed to be working. Good thing I fake it well. Having so much fun, in fact, that at times, I barely had time to post a snatch of something to my old friend bloggy.

So, time for some reflection. What have I learned recently?

  • I'm a good person. It's getting to the point where I don't even need people to tell me. It's nice if they do, of course, but I no longer feel a need to seek it out.
  • I can disagree with people without ending up doubting myself. I've been given several "opportunities" to doubt myself lately, and I have refused. Not that there's no room for doubt, but that I have to move forward anyway. This would be a valuable one to extend to other areas of my life, wouldn't it? ;-)
  • A person, any one of us, can make a difference. It makes it almost an obligation to try: what if, for lack of just your little effort, the opportunity is missed? Now, clearly, taken to extremes, this thought is a potential black hole of stress. That's probably because I stated it in the negative (old habits die hard), but I'm feeling it in the positive. How much more hope there is, if any one of us can help.
  • There's no such thing as "too late". Even on the brink of madness, in great pain, people can turn their lives, if not around, at least back towards the light. It's a privilege to watch.
  • I can feel. It has been in there all the time. Let's see where listening, for a change, takes me.

Wow, I am impressed! Such great words. I feel the power in these!

"I am a good person and worthy of love. I know what I do counts and so I act accordingly. I love myself and I take care of myself willingly. I can feel all my fear and grief. I grow at my own pace. I belong here. There is hope and solutions. Things change and I can handle it. My feelings, my needs and my opinions are important to me. I am ok, thank you!"

sweet!

when I read the title to your blog entry, I totally thought you were gonna make some sort of reference that you were gonna make like a banana and split, I can't believe I was wrong!

You didn't like "Time flies..."? :-P

It's a favorite of mine.

Heh. Am I really that corny? (You don't have to answer that.)

It's good to hear you smile, even if I have to read between the lines.

ha, right now we're just in the process of pulling the tax bills of multiple owners, appeals, overbills etc, we didn't even start folding and stuffing yet :(

Yeah, you're so right, it is a death of a thousand cuts!

Plus, by tomorrow I'm gonna need the chiropractor!

Around here, Takeout Taxi will go around and bring you takeout from restaurants that don't deliver themselves. For a fee, of course.

Maybe I should stop distracting you, huh? :-P
