Been on this site for a very short time and I can't begin to tell you the comfort it has brought me.

While driving home today something just came over me and I begin to laugh and cry, it felt like my body and head would explode if I did not put words to thoughts and declare to those around me
What I will

So my apologies for the lenght and ramdomness of it but here it goes

I will re-dicover the beuty in the world
I will heal the child inside and become the man I want to be
I will lean to laugh at the darkness when it comes and howl at the moon.
I will heal myself, physically, sprititually and emotionally
I will sing kareoke loud and not care who hears it
I will climb mountains
I will swim lakes
I will stand on a ledge at the wonderfulness of the world be mine
I will stop the pain
I will stop being a victime and I will move beyond a survivor to being a revalor
I will learn to turn off the voices of my parents in my head
I will lean to not let that bastard of a priest control my life anymore
I will mavel at butterflies and stand rejoice under waterfalls
I will lean to live healthy and feed myself good food and good thoughts
I will let others in to console me and I will except the love they offer
I will let my wife know everyday how special she is and never let her forget it.
I will revel in the person she had become and celebrate the person that is emerging
I will learn to love and deal with my parents and make them part of my world
I will let music take a hold of me and dance and move no matter the laughter of others
I wll let myself cry and wail when it hurts
I will also cry at joy there is in the world
I will be the best father and husband I kind be
I will find friends and learn to trust and let them in
I will allow myself to feel
I will let myself be held and not cringe back
I will find the goodness in everyone again
I will learn live and not exist
I will take a bites out of life and let the juice flow
I will declare the love for my wife to everyone and anyone weather they will listen or not
I will never let my son forget how special and kind he is and how proud I am of him and the person he is becoming.
I will take a class for the joy of learning somehting I want

I will continue to look to heal and go through the pain

I hope those closest to me will join be but I will do these thing with them or own my own

I will no longer exist in the world and let life move past, I will be loud, happy, sad and participate in life

I will feel good about myself and learn to love me.

I will think good things about me

I will continue to make jokes but I will stop using them to keep people at a distance.

Well I don't believ this is the final list but it was a good start for me. I laughed I cried the I let the boy and the man speak and now I will share this with the world and declare I am David, I am stronger than my past and better than many would have you believe

And the hell to anyone who does not like it.

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this so let me know. I think I will copy it into a members forum and give a copy to my therapist.

Thanks for listening, I hope you all know how special you are for listening and providing this space.

My Love, Strentgh and Sorrow to you all

Dave

I will dance in the flowers, as the dragonflies swirl about, while I let the music do the talking.

KEEP WORKING ON YOUR LIST...!!!


It's cool and I'm down.
