Karin,

How many times do I have to tell you, if you're going to keep climbing those mountains you have to take your oxygen canister with you...now, go out and make sure one is packed in your trunk!!!

Hey, often what you think of as your setback is really someone else's. Maybe people around you are screwed up and you are just taking their reactions too personally. Don't. You're doing great. If others nearby want to be "crazy", let them. Just make sure you stay far enough away so that you don't get caught up in their overflow. If you know what I mean???

You can not control events that are out of control but you CAN control your reactions to them.
This is empowerment, stay centred and grounded in the strength that you DO have within you , and do not forget to call upon that higher power through prayer in the morning and before bed. Keep your mind focused on the positive and ask god to cleanse the negatives as you encounter and feel them through out the day..takes work...you can do it

Yes K, I know what you mean. I am at such a reflecting stage right now. Everything is magnified around me. Like I am studying all that is going on around me...chaos and all...I feel like I am surrounded by bubble wrap. I know that sounds funny but it's like nothing is hurting me. I am being protected? Or am I still numb and in denial? I don't know and you know what???? It is okay...I am at peace...if I can call it that.

For the moment I will just rest in the place that I am and trust in my creator that he has me in his hands and is in control of all around me. And when it is time for me to "feel", or "react" to the circumstances around me...well...then I will know where I have been...in hiding or?

I have always had to understand everything that has ever gone on with me...how refreshing to just "be" for a change....:)

Talk to you later...

Love, Karin

Hello my friends...

I found a saying the other day and really want to share it with you...

"Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things, it comes softly and sits on your shoulder."

I liked it. I have it taped up in my office...I love butterflies...and I just know one will be landing on my shoulder one day.....

Love you all, Karin

The sun is out today. It is warming my soul.

I have been having troubles with my nine year old son in school... disrespectful and out of control were the words his teacher used. He gave a sub teacher a very rough time. I know he is going through so much...his natural father has mental problems and has to take medication for it to remain somewhat under control and of course...his step father whom he loves very much..is in jail. I have recently gone back to church and have got him involved with a boys club there hoping to give him positive male interactions.

I know counseling is in order here...but finances will not allow it at this time. I have tried to get him to talk...and he admits he hates having his father in jail and living so far out in the country where it is hard to find kids to play with his age (he is like an only child...his brother is 23 and a sister 24 that live out of town or state). But these are things that I can not change at this time.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed as I am running out of ideas.

Thanks,

Karin

Karin,

Have you checked into the Big Brother's program? Or how about something at the YMCA. They have all sorts of after school programs...and they even have financial assistance programs for those who need it. It's a type of day care thing after school, but they often do fun things.

He needs to find a surrogate family he can spend time with. My son spends lots of time at his friend's house. The boy's mother calls my son her "other" son. He seems to get the best of both worlds that way...

I will check what is out there and get back to you with more info...

I also thought about after school sports...or maybe karate...that is something that will instill a lot of self respect and respect for others. I know I'd like to take it, if I only had the time...

Hi Karin,
Bad news for me. I might lost my job which due to poor "office politic"i am very poor with "office politc' I feel like I am a bigger and stupic fool.After so many years of hard work, just because i don't want to be part of them. I now become a victim. The world is so un- fair to me.
Today, I feel that nice people always don't get good treatment back.

I am very very down now:(

I am so sorry to hear about your job lost soul. I have had jobs where if you don't join the "click" you just don't fit in and are forced out. Please know that if this is the way this office works...then good-bye to it. There is a better place for you where your tender heart and special talents will be appreciated. It doesn't seem fair and I know that nice people end up feeling used but don't stop being who you are. Bad people really do get theirs in the end...

I believe in you girl...don't let this experience stop you from continuing to grow as you have so much already. Have faith in yourself and I bet you will turn this all around and even find a better job!

I will be praying for you...

Love, Karin

Hi Karin
Thanks for your words.It actually makes me tears which I have been holding it back since the bad news.I am trying to get over it.I might seems strong but at times i can be rather weak.Again, "times" can heal "wounds". I will have to apply the "letting go" technics.
Thank you once again.
kindest regards:}

Tears can be good...as long as there is an end to them. And that end is the start of a new beginning. A fresh start!

Karin and Lost Soul...I am thinking of you. My prayers are with you.

Karin, is it raining there? I think the sun will shine soon!

Hi all,
Lost soul, good to see you. How are things now?
Kitten, how are you?
Lets have an update guys, what is going on in eveyones life now? What are your main problems, worries etc right now?
Me, Im doing a bit better, Im working on my agoraphobia and panic attacks, doing my course and my partner has quit the booze and i don't take any crap from him now, (although sometimes i let him have a little mood or he would go cold turkey!) I have No money! no job! no idea of what the future holds but thats okay cos i do have quite a supportive family who i have helped out many times in the past so i fugure its their turn to help me for a bit! I think i will soon be well enough to get a job, i have started a part time catering business too so may be that will help.

Hey karin, havent forgotten you! how are you doing? You are sounding well.
You should know the outcome with your Husband soon shouldn't you?? When will that be, im sure its soon if i remember right. Hope all goes well and I hope we are all being strong and eating lots of cake to keep us happy!!!
Peace all
Hazza

Hello Kitten...yes the sun is shinning today...and it should stay that way until Sunday!

Hazza...thanks for remembering about my husband...I am still on hold due to the fact that his trial keeps getting postponed. His new trial date is for March 7th...I wish I could just get on with my life but it is impossible until his fate has been answered for me.

Today is the first day of a five day break in work for me...it has been over a year since I took time off and I am ready for it. Taking my son and doing some local tourist stuff. Shall be refreshing.

Catering business...that sounds like fun. I am glad to hear you are doing well Hazza...

Lost soul...keep that chin up girl...when ever there is a storm...a beautiful rainbow will appear...

Talk to you guys later......

Karin

Hi again Karin,
Thats great that you are taking a break from work. Make sure you take your vitamins though! When ever I used to take a break from work I would always get a cold!!!Just my luck!
March isn't too far away now, have you any idea what the verdict will be? In a funny way what ever happens is better than the not knowing.
What ever the outcome, rest assured in the fact that you have grown so much in this time that if your husband is free, i feel sure you will be able to make sure that he keeps clean and sober if he wants to be with someone as special as you and your child, and if he does get a sentence, i know you will be strong enough to make it through on your own
Do you think he has also grown in this time? I know it was a difficult decision for you as to whether you stood by him or not, but i just know that whatever happens you will cope.
Best wishes to you and enjoy your holiday. Eat lots of junk food, calories don't count on holidays!
You are in my thoughts
as is everyone else here

Wow Hazza...I just read your words from the I need advice pls thread. For les...

wow is all I can say...you described my husbands' and my relationship totally. To the "T". The picking you up at work drunk as a skunk really hit home...

Brought up a lot of emotions I had burried. I just pray that if Tim does get out of jail soon and he is coming home that he has learned his lesson and finally sees that I won't take his crap either.

Way to go girl...

Hi karin,
Yes, wow- i think it is a bit like waking up from a coma sometimes when i think back to how much denial i was in, my responsibility in it was not being brave enough to let the shit hit the fan. Once i was things got better.

My partner now feels i have gone too much the other way! That i come down on him like a ton of bricks for the slightest thing, but he doesn't have to stay does he? if he can do better elsewhere... I wont stop him. If he wants to be with me, he has to know that now, i need time to recover. I think it has been a short sharp shock for him, but he is being supportive now, as best he can. I also realise that its hard for him cos of my nervous problems. So i will just try my best to be positive but not naive!
Best wishes to you.
Hazza
