Good Times, Finally

After my birthday epiphany, I have understood myself better and allowed myself to feel how I feel. Actions are voluntary, feelings happen. Contrary to the way I was raised, feelings cannot be inappropriate or disgraceful, only what you do about them. Some people find solace in denial. I am not one of those.

Accepting Yndi as she is, telling Roger that she can stay at his place longer than 30 days if she needs to, has taken the pressure of him and off Yndi.

Yndi's weakest link is her confidence. Therefore, much of her training has been focused on that. Doing what she can do easily. Schmoozing with people, a little Reiki treatment. She is really a nice pony. I am proud to own her but not attached. Yet.

She has a fantastic trot!

I am listening to Grave Peril, by Jim Butcher, read by James Marsters. Buffy the Vampire fans will know James Marsters as Spike.

Here is a summary I sent to Diana yesterday on FB PM:
I have a cold. Otherwise OK. Silver was very active this morning, it was fun. Mon-Tuesday we went to Mt Hamilton. I thought of you and thought you would like the quiet, with moss and lichen hanging from the trees. Wednesday I took Hubby to IKEA for recreational shopping. We don't do that often, but IKEA is a good place for it,with a snack bar and a cafeteria eatery inside. We had Swedish potato chips. Yesterday I took him out to Knightsen to meet Yndi and Roger. It was a good day. Then I spent the rest of the day drinking tea and watching Fringe on DVD. Today I go to see Yndi by myself. Whoo! It takes 80 minutes to get there! I have a lecture series on US history in my ipod and I am trying to learn all the words to Lydia The Tattooed Lady

I am honored to be mentioned in your post! I did, in fact, recently take some photos of lichen, moss endraped trees. Here's cheers to a better year for all.

I'm glad you've made it around this particular rough spot. It's been a tough time and I know for me embracing those difficult feelings that swamp you always works in slogging through them.

Here's to a new year!
