Gold,

"Just goes to show you can lie to everyone else but yourself about your dreams. Wow! That sounds like a proverb to me.

So are you gonna make time for your dream and become a Rodeo Star?? Do you live west?

I'll bet you'll great at it!

Y&R, I'm going to give it a real try, I live in Texas so it's all here and available for me to do. I don't want to do it to the exclusion of my other responsibilities but I also don't want to be made to feel guilty about going on the weekends(as work allows).
However, If I won the lottery, Look out!! LOL

I just made that little "proverb" up out of my head..gee guess in depth talks with myself CAN reveal things .

JW, "An UNACKNOWLEDGED desire."
That pretty much sums it all up!!

This also explains why I cry when I watch 'Made' on MTV. And why I cry when I watch that makeover show on TLC.

LOL

Gold,

I'm so glad you gonna GO FOR IT!!!

How very cool that is! Picking up a dream you sacraficed for the the people you make most of your sacrafices for. I'm getting misty all over again. Guess I see myself in that too...

Do me a favor, work you AAC nickname into your nick name when you become a huge Rodeo star so that I can see you and cheer for you.

Your right, your proverb is revealing and insightful. Please post it. I want everyone to love it as much as I do.

Go get em GOLD...YEEE-HAWWWW!!

JW,

I think that show takes applications or videos from the public. Can you submit, or have a friend submit, your info to become a guest on the show?

While you're waiting to hear from the show, if you can, indulge yourself and have a makeover at Carlson, or Fields or a Salon. I think it would be so good for you. Like you said, something to give you the confidence to reveal the inner you...that part gave me a glimpse who you are and made me feel close to you.

You can do it BEAUTIFUL JAMACIAN GIRL!

Y&R, My rodeo dream is already part of my nickname, at the National Finals rodeo, you get gold buckles for winning. Hence, I C Gold!!

I went yesterday and signed up to go back to college this fall. I'm only going to take 6 hours but it's a start anyway! Gotta finish my degree so I can pay for my rodeo expenses! LOL Rodeo people don't do it for the $$ we do it because we love it 🙂

IC Gold,

Ohh!

I didn't pick up on that. So your name is not only pretty but functional, it reminds you to keep your eyes on the prize. Very cool!

Glad to hear you already signed up to finish your degree. Look at your drive! It's enviable to me.

What is your field of study by the way?

Y&R
My degree will be in Computer Information Systems. SOMEDAY!! Nobody said I had to finish fast, just finish..
My nickname is also my horse's name shortened down. It just happened to be "cute" when I did it!
How are YOU doing? X2 emailed me and said while he was at "other womans" house last night, he got a sudden sad case of missing me~ I didn't even respond to the email and when he told me in person today, all I said was I was sorry to hear that! and changed the subject 🙂
Had an old boyfriend contact me and it's made a WORLD of difference in my attitude. He want's to try and put us back together but I've said we will do nothing for 90 days but talk on the phone. I am going to take this SO SLOW so I can do it right. He understands that my mental and emotional health come first in my life right now and accepts that. I typed him a 5 page(single space) letter outlining what I wanted to have in a relationship and what items were "deal breakers". I told him that I wanted NO surprises while we were in this 90 waiting period. I chose 90 days because my divorce will be final and also to give me my "space" to make sure this is exactly what I want to do. There's no doubt we love each other but like I told him, I'm not the same person he knew,loved and lived with 12 years ago.

here's a cute story that's make your heart swell. I had cut off a section of PVC pipe that had been sticking up in my yard. what i had cut off was a semicircle..let's say 2/3 of a circle. I had left it in the yard. My three year old daughter found it, picked it up in her wee hand, and excitedly exclaimed to me in all honesty of her wonderful discovery.."Look Daddy! The moon fell!"

It was so cute I bit my lip and my eyes took on that shape of observed cuteness as they welled...I didn't have the heart to tell her it was just a piece of scrap pipe.

Gold,

You know, that's true: The race is NOT given to the swift or the strong but the one who endures until the end.

Now you got my curiosity all piqued. What is your horses name?

I'm doing well, thank you.

Sounds like the ex was trying sooo hard to push those emotional buttons. Why was it necessary to tell you he was with the "other woman?" My ex was like that too. If he could get a rise out of me (even an angry one) he took it as an expression of love.

Doesn't it feel great to not only reocognize the manipulation but not fall for it. To just walk right past the snare that cound have kept you entangled for weeks. POWER IS GOOD. Wish I was there to high-five you one.

An old Luv? Oooouuuu! Sound intriguing! Also sounds ideal for me since I don't like starting over. Why did you guys split-up to begain with?

I LOVE IT! "We will do nothing but talk on the phone for 90 days." This speaks volumes about your self-worth. You were able to communicate what you need in the relationship order to stay healthy. Good for you! It also speaks volumes about his interest level. He accepts your terms and is willing to work to earn you...forgive me, but I find the thought of that very romantic.

Don't be clouded by the romance of it all though. Stick to those guns and those deal breakers.

You give me SO much hope.

Glittered,

Awwww, how perfectly sweet!

Nor would I. And why should you tell her? Life will rationalize and expose all the magic soon enough.

But for now, she's marveling in the fact that somehow, her big strong daddy just gave her the moon.

Your reaction made me smile...you can be quite the sentimental one can't you.

That should go on the resume too.

I cry at the old AT&T adds.
I cry at movies. I have even cried at a particularly touching dance performance.

Since my sweetheart left me for another man, 5 weeks ago, after 24 wonderful years,
I cried 20 tumes a day. I must be getting better, I'm down to 10 times a day. I'm 69. What do I do now?

Betrayed and upsidedown

Y&R,
My horse's name is Comanche Gold and he's the best and most important thing in my life...I tell people I like my kids but I LOVE that horse! LOL
The old love(12 years ago) and split up because I didn't know how to deal with his drinking and I had issues also. So I buried them and started my next unhealthy relationship-which is the one that just ended!! NOW I know to take the time and fix me before I do anything. We may have other issues to deal with but each of us is still deeply in love with the other even after all these years....I wrote him a 5 1/2 single spaced typewritten letter "outlining" what all I would and wouldn't put up with. Things that he could do to improve himself. Over and over I told him he couldn't be happy in our relationship until HE was happy with himself first-I could only make him happier!!
I finished my first co-dependent book last night 1 down 2 more to go!!

Wow, I read all of the posts here to this thread, got to the last one, and the horse I had all through my teenage years was Comanche! Tears and smiles developed!
Also wanted to say that besides the Hallmark commercials and AT&T commercials I think the scene in a movie that I remember being most affected by was in City of Angels when the angel said to her that he wanted to know "how the pear tasted to HER". Everytime I see that I cry. Have never experienced a relationship where someone cared that much about me. Sniff, Sniff. I love you all.

I C Gold, yes on the Hallmark emotions. Old couples do it to me, possibly because I don't know if I will have it, and I wouldn't have had it even if I had stayed married. Ex was not the care taker type. Been there done that advice to any one thinking about marrying a "cowboy" don't. At least not the vain, insecure, deadly handsome, needy ones. On the rodeo aspect of tearing up. Do that too. I am a horse trainer so for me it is the aspect of seeing a good horse who enjoys their job give 110 percent to get it done well. You a powerful stretch run on a race horse, the perfect slide on a reiner, or even a good bronce work. It's the power of the animal. As for your rodeo dream, and maybe you already know this, work him at home, a little a day is better than nothing. Start at a small local show, it doesn't cost a lot.

Hi Gold,

LOL, Comanche sounds like some horse.

The reasons behind the split-up sound complicated. Is the old love siill a drinker? If so, how are you more prepared to deal with it now than before?

The part about how time hasn't faded your love was so touching to me. I such a softie.

I was reading a psycholgist's description of the qualities of a healthy realationship like: mutual respect, trust, honesty, support, fairness, and good communication. I've never had the TOTAL package of qualities listed above. Partially because I didn't know I was entitled to them. After learning them, and understanding that I deserve them, this is the new standard by which I measure every relationship I have. You deserve the to, so don't settle for less.

You're so right on! You're not responsible for his happiness, only your own. The letter tells me that you put some serious thought into what your relationship goals are. That's a big step.

Was he receptive to the letter and the improvement suggestions?

Which Coda books are you reading?

Which did you learn from the first one that just...blew you away?

UPSIDEDOWN, I remember you friend!
Sorry for your pain, wish I had an answer for you about what to do now...
When things get particularly dark for me, and I don't have any of the answers, I cry out to GOD for help.

Sometimes when I'm done praying and crying he directs me to outreach. For me, this means to get involved in the helping of someone with a need greater than my own...volunteering time and/or efforts to someone/some cause who could really use it.

Doing this:
-helps me to stop to stop obsessing over myself and my junk for a while.
-helps to remind me that no matter how bad things seem, they could always be worse.
-Helps me to feel closer to and more obedient to GOD.

Best of Luck to you friend. You have my thoughts and best wishes.

BelovedBeliever, That movie was beautiful. I can't even hear Sarah McLaughlin’s song, Arms of the angles, without getting misty.

My tender moments come when I look at my kitty. How I adopted her mom when she was astray. When she was born at my place. How her mom was 1st breastfeeding her with her sister, then weaning them both till they became 2 months and started to eat dry food. How cute she was when she was born, plump and friendly. Each time I pet her, her mom would get angry while she would enjoy it and react with friendliness.

Each time I look at my kitty (Now she is 4 years old), I can't help but think of the day when she gets old or sick and has to go home. I cry and say please Lord!

That's why I keep her in my prayers.!!!
