I like the part of me that is so curious about this world that we live in. Amazed by the beauty and awsome power of the natural world.

Mark, your comment about living life and not just passing through it, rings all to true for me. I usually say that I think life is happening to me, but I am not directing it as well as I know that I can.

I can give some really good talks on how to live your life with a decent amount of serenity and sense of direction, rejoicing that we can determine who we want to be. Most days, I do not practice it though. That is when I forget that I have lots of control of things, but I choose to sit back and watch what is going to happen. For me, that is rather maddening.


If we do not live what we believe, then we will begin to believe what we live.

This is thread I have read before, and I was not able to reply at it. So now I try. I think one good thing of me is that I am starting to learn more, and allow myself to recover some. That is what I try to do now.

I realize this is rather older topic, but I've been discovering so much good stuff from the past here at M/S. Very excited for it.

I will add my thoughts to to this topic.

I like that I'm also a great guy, a very kind, caring, compassionate, and personable person.

I like that even though I was abused, I'm still a decent and caring guy.

I'm slowly learning to love myself.

Thank Al for this topic and for letting me share. Great topic guys.
