Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.

Art Linkletter

Being myself includes taking risks with myself, taking risks on new behaviour, trying new ways of being myself, so that I can see how it is I want to be.

Hugh Prather

And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin

I have an idea. I think I found something that would fit… But it’s going to take some time… so I’m keeping it to myself. I don’t want to jinx it. Sorry for the teaser…

But I’m really excited if it works out. 🙂

I’m still feeling really good, really healthy. Better even, and more in control than the last time I wrote.

Filed under: fall,healthy spirit — Jenny @ 1:25 pm

It feels like fall outside this today. Or at least I got that “fall” feeling while I was sitting on my balcony, enjoying a cup of coffee and a sunny, crisp morning. Right behind that feeling came of wave of happiness. Sometimes it seems like everyone is fighting so hard to be happy and trying to convince themselves they’re happy; and they even think they are. But sitting outside for those few minutes was when I really knew it. It was happiness and contentment. It was quick, flashed by me in a wave, but it was there. It made its presence known.

I feel like something has happened to me in the past few weeks. Everyday I wake up and feel like I’ve changed a little, like I’ve matured, grown into myself. I feel as though I’ve taken control of myself. Like I own myself, everything about myself. I’ve never really felt like this before in my life, this kind of maturity. There’s this sense of confidence, self-assuredness, stability and strength.

I’m almost taken aback by it. I see a lot of beauty right now, a lot of good.


Loves it.


Things I Learned This Weekend August 4, 2008

Filed under: comfort,home,the Best — Jenny @ 3:32 am

1. Bests should never go 8 months without seeing each other.
2. High school parties are best experienced as 24 year olds who can make a drinking game out of the hilarious situation around them.
3. It’s best to keep tabs on Molly.
4. I have the best parents ever and I’m really glad that now that their nest is empty, they get to focus on themselves for a change.
5. I officially prefer cats to dogs.
6. Given the right circumstances, I don’t really hate St. Louis like I claim I do.
7. I’d be nothing with out my Best. Seriously. Nothing.

(It’s only upon reading this after I posted that I questioned how many times I could use the word “best” in one blog…)
