Trying to Feel Good

My internet connection is annoyingly up and down this week, which keeps me from doing the "research" I’d planned to do for the blog post that I’d planned to write. Instead, I’ll try this modified little meme-thing I picked up while stumbling around the internet. That makes it sound like an STD.

With no qualifications or justifications, here are 5 things I'm proud of about me:
  1. I’ve never had casual sex. (I've never had an STD, either.)
  2. I know a little bit about a lot of stuff. On a related note, I read a lot: fiction, nonfiction, genre fiction, memoir, Newsweek, etc.
  3. My body does a good job with pregnancy, labor, and baby feeding. I did natural childbirth once! And might do it again someday when I don't have to play with Mr. Pitocin.
  4. I think about things, really think about them. For the past 10 years or more, I've been trying to train my brain to look behind the emotion at the facts, the logic, the different sides of a situation.
  5. Sometimes I can make pretty pictures with words.

Hmm, that was harder than I thought it would be.

I don't know about #3. My body, as it turned out, did a pretty lousy job with those things. I'm proud of myself for persevering and getting through those incredibly difficult times without losing my mind for good.
