Just one cup to start the day and suddenly a new spin on how I feel begins. It's pretty amazing. For years my ritual is coffee, cigarettes and medication. Than in about 20 minutes I can move and get up and about. I realized I am a pretty simple chick to please the older I get. It doesn't take much at all to make me happy. I am learning that " I want what I want when I want it" simply doesn't happen nor is it realistic. It has taken me 44 years of growing up to figure that one out.

How does anyone really know when they are an adult? Do you just wake up oneday and it hits you in the face like a ton of bricks? I work with mostly young people and I see the thought differences etc. I might have more life experience but does that make me an adult? These are the strange thoughts that float around in my grey matter. I'm caught in a circle. Round and round, but I'm tired of treading water. The doggie paddle of life is hard to maintain. The one thing I do notice is that there are many other people doing the doggie paddle with me. I know one thing. I'm not ready to float face down. Peace!

We are all doing the doggie paddle together..LOL..that's funny.

I think some are late bloomers. They are the ones that take longer to get where they are going. But the longer trip there makes them stronger, kinder, and more spiritual people.

Glad court worked out. Once you have been in the "system" I don't think you trust it to work fairly ever again. Mostly it does though.

I guess it has to do with taking responsibility for yourself without bothering someone else. Until someone else wants to help.

Just off the top of my curly head!

Lou- I wish everyone had your kindness and good sense. Like you say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. That is the god's honest truth...Be well...

Goatman- Personal responsibility seems to be a thing of the past. Btw, I didn't know your hair was curly. Thanks for the glimpse.
