I'm always here... if you need me...

I've tried every tact I can think. I've been understanding, I've been funny, I've been helpful, I've gotten angry, I've soaked up some of your depression (albeit unintentionally), I've spoken seductively and used ribald language, and I've been loving and caring...

always loving and caring.

Some things help... for a short time and some things make no impression at all. It appears that when we spend time together... you "perk up" and yet the next day... you're right back to sleeping thru your depression for most of the day.

I'm frustrated and tired, my energy and enthusiasm are depleted... and yet, I will never give up! I'm here... by your side (figuratively) for the duration.

It's still a waiting game. Your life is in Limbo. I do understand that this is the hardest thing you've ever had to do

and last but not least...

I received my license from Virginia Board of Nursing last Friday!
So I'm legal! Did I tell you that my teacher (and owner of the school) hired me as a Therapist at the Clinic at the Institute??? I've had two clients already.

Now I just need to retire from my day job!!!
4 years, 0 months, 0 weeks, 2 days, 22 hours..... but who's counting?!

A wasted Saturday? Never!

Then I watched Last Holiday with Queen Latifah
Great quote by Gérard Depardieu as Chef Didier:

"The secret of life is... butter"

One down, one to go...

It came in the mail yesterday! I'm officially NCTMB (Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork)! Now I'm waiting for the state Board of Nursing to send me my license.

Our deepest fear...

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Author: Marianne Williamson

"Our greatest fear" from her book 'A return to love'

I just watched Akeelah and the Bee. What an awesome movie! I cried through the second half... not because it was sad, nope, because it was just so uplifting. Yeah? Go ahead, call it a 'chick flick' if you must... but this 'Chick' loved it!

still waiting...

I'm still impatiently waiting for my certificate from NCBTMB (and sometimes Y) and for my license from the VA Board of Nursing. The state DID cash my check this week... so hopefully it's in the works!

Harley-Davidson: Live by it.

Awesome video. However, near then end... the voices in unison begin to sound a little like the Borg... a little creepy.
