Gratitude and Thanksgiving

From the blog, Pinon Pine Blues
Gratitude means to be grateful for something, while thanksgiving is, of course, the act of giving thanks. So thanksgiving can be thought of as the active expression of gratitude. It's possible to feel gratitude without expressing it-- although that's a mistake. Unexpressed gratitude just sloshes around in one's karma-bucket, not doing much good for us or the person we're grateful to. I've long had a problem with expressing gratitude on Thanksgiving. ...

Friday, I'm in Love ♥

From the blog, The Daily Dark
I managed to get to work on time today. I took the train. I was stressed out toward the end of the trip because the bus driver wanted to take a 15 minute fuckin' break and my job was only 5 minutes away. I was almost late again, which would have gotten me fired. It's more money to ride the train, but due to the cold weather and the distance, I ... Read more »

Minecraft Stabilizes Bipolar Disorder I

From the blog, for my mental health
This blog over 10 years old but all my archives deleted long ago. :) About me? I have a lot of health issues, none worth writing about today. The main reason I felt compelled to write now is because I AM OKAY. It started last December when I discontinued all meds against doctors advice and went on a 3 day fast. And here I am . . . still happy, no ... Read more »

How to talk to Mr Obama...golfspeak!

From the blog, A Blog of Thinking Allowed
There seems to be a bit of confusion regarding what the President is saying.  And there seems to be an even bigger gap between what others--experts I might add--are telling him and what he appears to be hearing.  I have a suggestion. Communication is key in all relationships. We must find the recipient of our message and relate to them on their level or the message is lost. Actually, there is ... Read more »

hello again

From the blog, Daily Nuggets
Well, I will tell you more about me. I was mostly raised by my mother who was, and still is, a practicing alcoholic. I was pretty much ignored a lot by her and had to, in a sense, raise myself. She favored my younger brother and, while neglecting me, she would buy him the best of clothes--while I was lucky if I got hand-me-downs. There are some other things going on ... Read more »

This Too Shall Pass...Won't It?

From the blog, Heather Unbalanced
I dont expect many people to read this blog. Its more of a personal journal made public as my way of telling the world, "Im not ashamed of my feelings. I have them. I acknowledge them. I let them move on." This particular blog, my first one, is being written during a time of grief. I have lost someone. Not to death; nothing so serious. But I have lost a man. ... Read more »

I'm a Freak Accident Away from Becoming a Supervillian

From the blog, Random Thoughts
I love watching superhero movies. It doesn’t matter if I even like the superhero, I still will see the movie. Lately I’ve taken on a fascination with the supervillain. There are two types- the pure evil villain who knows (s)he is evil and intentionally wants to be as cruel as possible and there’s the mentally unstable underdog who as a result of some freak accident has gained super powers that when combined ...

History of Frontal Lobotomy

From the blog, Benjamin A Kozlowski
           The history of the surgical treatment of psychiatric disease has a complex history, at times controversial, at others popular, and its origins reach back into distant history.  Beginning with the discovery of the Ensisheim burial site in France, we can find evidence of a procedure known as trephination; a procedure where a circular saw of some type was apparently used to ...

This page is about life in general. The pain, joy, and roadblocks to life. Most of it will be about the pain we feel because of life in general and how we can be stronger, better people.  Some or possibly much of it will be about my personal experiences and what I have done to get through some tough moments.

Questions of love

From the blog, The Blog of Blahzey
My daughter once teased me when she gently placed her hand upon my chest saying she was trying to cool herself off on my cold, cold heart.  I know it was in jest but it makes me wonder.  Is my heart warm or cold?  I love a lot of people, men in particular.  At least i think i do.  Is that possible?  How do we really know we are feeling ...
