    Square Nipples!!!

     I found a great dress whilst shopping the other day.  It has a low back and fits me like a glove.  I'm really flat chested but have annoying nipples that stand out - probably not such a bad thing but it really bothers me.   It occured to me that I wouldn't be...

    Maybe I Am A Bad Driver.

    Lately I've found its when I'm on the road, which is so dangerous. They are usually small, stupid things that would just irritate other drivers. I haven't really done anything to put anyone's life in danger, however I get so angry and upset with myself for being so reckless. Sure...

    AND...all I Can Say Is

    Don't we all?  If you think you don't make mistakes or miss the mark sometimes, you don't get a chance to learn from these events.  You must have a laptop with you on your mountain-top ashram.  Does the halo cause a lot of glare on your screen?

    and I don't think I am able to accept the reality, so I desperately try to fix it and try to explain to anyone and make them understand why I did or said something so stupid. But usually the more I try to fix it the worse it gets. I want to Normal sometimes but really I think...

    I find them stupid sometimes,

    and most people think they are all stupid. But we learn by them, You can't learn from something if you haven't done it. People may believe something is stupid so you are told it's stupid. But there are just something out there you need to experience yourself to learn from it.

    I love to do housework.  Strange, but true.  I often do my best thinking when I’m cleaning.  While I clean the clutter in my house, I clean the clutter in my brain as well.   But sometimes I can only do one task well at a time.   Today I...
