I often use the word control and regret it… some one may say control your dog, I can not control its beating heart nor its breathing or thoughts and yet I am expected to have an animal that sits and heels and I suppose does tricks on command. hen there are the childen.. we want happy children yet teach them to march in a line like penguins and tell them to be their selves. I understand both sides but quiver to think I just contradicted myself.

I think this was written last spring, during the first few months that I had the blogs…I was very worried about people’s potential reactions to the “pages” that I make…few people had ever seen them and I was worried about negative reactions…in addition almost no one came to either blog for the first few months so I figured my concerns were justified… and each day I would feel tremendous uncertainty/self consciousness about sharing my ideas or what I had made….it was extremely difficult…and hence, frequent reassurance arrived for me to go back to my own positive motivation and intention and to let people’s reactions be their own reactions and not my concern. I practiced the ideas in this card again and again and again….and have made really good progress in shifting out of that earlier perspective, thank goodness.
