gOt hApPy?

“Love yourself—
accept yourself—
forgive yourself—
and be good to yourself, 
because without you the rest of us 
are without a source of 
many wonderful things.”

 ~Leo F. Buscaglia 

Hey ffps:

Where's the love
Here's a link to the  Peas' "Where is the Love" to listen to as you are reading this blog! I want to marry the Black Eyed Peas!

GuEsS wHaT? The LoVe is in you! I used to think that the love I needed was going to come from someone outside myself (and it very often does, and that's a huge bOnUs!), but when I want to feel love, I have to remember that I have to love me first!

A really super smart person and amazing mentor once told me that if something's missing in my life, it's missing 'cuz I am NOT GIVING IT TO MYSELF (. . . and, at first, that totally sucked because it meant that I had to STOP complaining about everybody else not giving me what I need, and figure out how to give it to myself . . . which is actually un-sucky, and powerful in a cool way...)

FYI: just want you to know that at first, these ideas really bugged me, cuz they meant that I was in charge (and I had to stop blaming others for me!), but, at the same time, the good news is that I AM IN CHARGE . . . of ME! And, why would we want to give our sUpErPoWerS away, anyway? (so we can stay "victimized" and not take responsibility? hmmnnnn . . . sounds miserable!)  

. . . which leads me back to the fact that we are in charge of our own stories and our own hApPiNeSs. Here's a cool grownup blogger who has some ideaS:

Anyway, another thing (later blog) is to quit trying to be pErfeCkT (did I spell that imperfecktly? Dang! and I'm an Englush teechur!) CUz' that's another way we are kind of uN-LoViNG and mean to ourselves!

Big deep belly breath!
You are right where you need to be.
