Best Friend

Being/becoming my own best friend and accepting every single molecule of who I am is at the heart of this journey.

It sounds so simple. It is so powerful.

Relaxing the shoulders, exhaling, and accepting opens up possibilities that striving can’t even imagine.

So that’s what I think this snowy morning.

Addendum:  Obviously it’s been awhile since I visited here.  Hope to be more regular (ah, we’ve heard THAT before)!  Anyway, I was surprised to see an ad pop up in this post, so clicked the link for more info and here’s what I found:

About These Ads

The site you just visited is part of There are two reasons why you might see ads on a site:

  1. The site is part of the WordAds program and has elected to show ads to earn money from their site.
  2. The site is one of the sites hosted on that has not purchased the No Ads upgrade, and we are running ads to cover the costs of operating the site for the user. We run these types of ads sparingly in an attempt to interfere as little as possible with the experience of reading a site and for logged in users we don’t show ads at all. There’s more info about our approach to ad serving in this blog post.

In both of the above cases, the ad you saw could be coming from a number of ad partners including SharethroughFederated Media, orAdSense. The ads change depending on factors like your location and the type of site you are visiting.

If you are a user and you would like to permanently remove all ads from your site, please take a look at our No Ads upgrade.

If you saw an inappropriate ad, please report it to

I sure don’t begrudge WordPress the revenue for such a great product.  And if I begin to feel that I can trust myself to come back here more often, maybe I’ll upgrade.

In the meantime … sorry about the ads!

    Insightful sentiments, and I’m going to give it a try, but think I need to keep my expectations reasonable, too. Not sure how that factors in. Negating my self is so tiring and has been so unproductive. Good food for thought for me to muse over. Thanks JordanCornblog–I always perk up when I see you have a new posting.


    • Great to hear from you, Alice … Will you be home for UConn-Notre Dame tomorrow night? I think that will be a VERY good place to start befriending yourself (i.e. by rooting for UConn). It will expand your heart, I am very sure!

      Yup, sent from my iPad!


So, what do you think?
