One day at a time....funny how many circumstances that applies to.  This is five years old, but even in sad times, it's a good motto.  Thanks for stopping by, and it's fun to read about your animals.

Ben, yes it is a scary thing.
That rage is not something that is a a big part of me now, fortunately.  Even with everything that's gone on lately, I feel MUCH better than the girl that wrote this post.  I have spirituality now, I'm a Buddhist, which brings me greater peace and understanding in life and it's circles.  I also have a wonderful trauma specialist that helped me not only understand my rage in retrospect in a way no one had -- how it came from some things not discussed her and my upbringing -- but helped me, and still does, work through the post traumatic stress disorder.  It takes time, but, these are my cards, and I do find growth and blessings on the path along the way.  I share it because it helped me to find out I wasn't alone...maybe someone else will find comfort in my words.  Thank you for your concern and your comment. :)

I'm not sure about these issues. I hope you feel better today as compared to the original date when this was written.

Hi Temple...

One day at a time Temple.

Thanks for the visit and comment.  Austin does come in sometimes, and he loves to go for evening walks.

Thanks Spitfire.
This was a journal entry that felt, in some ways, like I could have written it today.  Maybe I don't always see the differences as much as those on the outside.

Impressive writing, really. And, even if I didn't know you personally, I would conclude that you have made so much progress to date. You can literally feel it in the energy of the then vs. now.

Being able to transfer emotion to paper, or virtual paper, is a hard task.  The fact that you believe I do so is a high compliment, and I thank you.  I try very hard to be honest, because I believe I was given the ability to write to share what I know.  Thank you for sharing your story with me and for reading and commenting here.  You are always welcome.

Jimmy, sometimes they are that bad.

Exactly that bad, but in different clothes.  What can I do but just keep doing...what did you call me the other day?  Resilient?  Maybe just stubborn.  Either way, gotta figure out how it all turns out. :)

Your strength as a writer is your ability to tranfer emotion on to the page by being simple and honest. I admire that. I sent you an email as well - I hope you don't mind

Good morning baby...
OUch, I can relate to the rage...though I have not fed it in years either, God I am glad that, as bad as things are, they are no longer that bad....

I will flip back to

Flipping the Gidget... I must have missed it, when my eyes were drawn to your poem! Good luck in your search of a publisher... you have something very special.

Ms. N - It was a teacher that really started me journaling.
I was already doing it, but she helped me sort of structure it and do it more often.  I wish I could thank her, but I can't even remember her name.  The blog here, Flipping the Gidget (which is the one that has a new post that I was trying to tell you about when you found this one) has gotten a lot of and on another blogsite.  People want to buy the book, so I'm looking for a publisher and/or agent.  Scary!  I do sell articles, but right now it's about paying the bills.  In time, it won't be. :)

Reading fast becomes necessary when you spend your whole life in school as a student - then become a teacher just to spend the rest of your life in school. I have my students journal. At first they balk, but then it becomes a labor of love.

Very concise, cogent writing. I hope you are writing elsewhere, as well.

my goodness you read fast!
I was mucking about with the format because it kept coming out too tiny and all the while you were reading!  Thank you muchly, Ms. N.  I've been keeping journals all my life and I think it's so interesting to look back.  :)
