Flavors of Ice Cream

I love it when I look in someone’s soul book and see that they have an array of potential partner contracts to work with and not just one.  Everyone wants that magical prince(ss) to come and sweep them off their feet, provide for all their needs emotional and otherwise, and with which they will live happily ever after. … Details

Toddler Fiction

People do loooooove their opposites and absolutes.  Either things will go well or I’ll fall into abject poverty.  I’ll either win the lottery or be forced to slave at a low wage job forever. I’ll either find the woman of my dreams or I’ll have to settle for whoever comes along, because being lonely is the worst thing that can ever happen to me.… Details

No – You Have To Change

Well, you don’t.  It’s kinda this weird cause and effect thing.  If you don’t want things to change, then you don’t have to change at all.  Oh, but you do?  Then you have to change.  But there’s nothing wrong with you, you’ve done it all right and it’s everything else that’s garbage? … Details

Problems Vs. Circumstances

It’s a rule of thumb that we excuse other’s choices and actions as a result of circumstances and yet we blame ourselves for having character flaws and serious problems or issues when we’re in the same spot.  Yes, we’re all responsible for our choices and actions in any given situation but I don’t know how many times people have lashed themselves as if having made do with not only lemons but rotten lemons and still made lemonade is a character flaw which makes them a walking catastrophe instead of the war hero they actually are. … Details

Time to Quit

I’m all about follow through.  Keeping your promises. Do what you say you will do. See things through to the end. All that stuff.  But like with most everything, too much of a good thing can be too much.  Life is not about absolutes and one size rarely fits all and sometimes not even some. … Details
