Of the three choices, I'd say go with the \:\) SMILE \:\)

Accept the good things and cheerish them.

Mgb, Glad it was a helpful post for you as well, because it did help me to write it.

Lloydy, I have done something similar back in my early days of healing where I wrote the 'steps' I was taking. So when it looked like I was not making progress, all I had to do was look at my poster hanging on the wall in my hallway. It quickly put in perspective the progress I had made. Sometimes it is hard to easily remind ourselves of these things.

Mike, will strap the nike's on! and fasten them securely.

Bill, you know it is hard for me to accept the good things at times as I think I spend a lot of energy looking for the bad. Guess that may be the old tapes playing still...darn I thought I had destroyed them. It is truly something to think about.

run with the wind..

from my shrink's office today..

if you spend your energy trying to convince people that you are perfect and never admit the imperfect aspects of your life, you eventually will find yourself surrounded by people who have convince themselves that everything in their world is just "perfect".

I am very happy that you have had some successes this week. I hope that they continue, and you can continue to smile. I wish you good luck.

I am glad you have had a good week, it is importnat to remember all the good things and successes. The fear is there, but you are fighting through that fear and that is a great thing, you can do it, and you have all the support here behind you.


Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible in not a declaration, it's a dare.
