this just occurred to me...

two significant ways i've changed over the past few years:

1. i am much more responsible and together (though i still have a long way to go)
2. i am much more fragile and anxious

i guess it's a trade of sorts.

I've always thought about how when you're little and just a kid, you have no fears and no worries other than immediate happiness. You are invincible and nothing bothers you (much). But when you age and enter adulthood, you start to watch out for things and anticipate what can possibly happen to you. I've been trying for the past year to let go of that "fear" (or whatever it is) that you acquire and try to get back to looking at things with a totally open view and anticipation.

Wow. Uh . . . sorry for the flow here but . . . see what you did to me??? Got me thinkin' here at work and that's NOT a good thing!! *laughing*

I've noticed it creeping into like all my lifestyle; I am worried about drinking too much, I am worried about the crazy people on the roads, I am worried about what's in the food, I am worried about my cat, blah blah blah. All this worry used to be expended exclusively on whether so-and-so would ever love me and how cool my outfit would be. Heh.

This is ruining my cool girl image, see?

Re: Me too
How are you more responsible than you were a few years ago? You were always responsible, mister never-mised-a-day-of-work guy!

If you were fragile, this weekend wouldn't have gone as (comparatively) well as it did.

Right. I think you're a lot stronger than you're giving yourself credit for.

Also, your dad rules.

He so totally does. I wish I could share him with everyone. But I can't!

He may be interested in charging for dad advice, though.

See, and I was thinking how much stronger you've become over the years. I think you're pretty hard core. We are always our worst critic, though. Sorry to hear about getting sick, but glad that you're doing better. Are you coming home for Christmas this year?

If I were hardcore, I'd have laughed in the face of pain and asked them to stick me with more needles!

Christmas proper I have to work but I am coming home sometime in the next month.

Been hanging out with the grammar morons again? Oh wait, you do technical things, it goes without saying. Were is the LEAST of my worries, most days.
