Thank you for the lovely affirmations, my friends. I perhaps should make something clear: I was as shocked by the image as anyone. This has been an unconscious belief I feel I've been carrying around. Something deep that I haven't been willing to confront. This is where my fears rest. But I've brought it out into the light. Now I can look at it and understand that, yes, I am a loving person, that this rottenness that I've been afraid of for so long is really unfounded. In fact, I feel a bit of relief at learning it...like I can be more myself.
I had a nice blog entry all prepared and saved on disk, but I forgot it at home today. Basically, it struck me, as it sometimes does, just how incredibly lucky I am. I listed 10 things for which I am grateful, among them were family and friends, work (even when it is stressful) which pays my bills, and work that I love to do (even if it doesn't yet pay the bills). Today I would add that living within walking distance of your work is something I'm grateful for (and a rain-free day in which to do it, too).
HippyChick and BeeDragon came over on Friday night to play Trivial Pursuit. They seemed to like my new place quite a bit, but I think that I need to get cushions for the floor because it was a bit uncomfortable after awhile. On Saturday B and I went to see the movie The New World. Go see it. It's incredibly beautifully done.
Well, that's it for now. You guys rock!
