Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. ~ Victor Frankl
Is My Dog Nice?
You ask that with a straight and unknowing face while the fury of your dog is full-on orbiting in a gnashing bark-fest at the end of their leash? Is my dog nice? Yes! And, she’s 125-pounds of nice. Though, your dog’s an asshole! Why do people ask that? Oh, I see. People don’t see themselves when they brush their teeth in the morning. That must be it. People don’t see themselves. Hmmm. Well, maybe the Ego is NOT such a bad thing after all. Dismissing it is just another shame-born gesture? Ok, then. No matter. The Ego is a short-timer anyway. It’s my understanding that it comes on so strong, because it can only last 2 minutes at a time. So, having problems with it? Just do deep breathing for 3 minutes, and then don’t be surprised when you open back in and look around and go, “So, what was so pressing? What was the problem, again?”
Please Inspect Your Expectations
Your dog may be telling you more than you know. You…. may be telling yourself more than you know. Strike that. Aren’t you?!!
Note: This blog will now have more of a Bukowski bent. Unrepentant. Zero shame. Zero explanation. Not comfortable with that and yourself and owning your stuff? Cool. No judgment, though, I suggest you leave. I will not respond to further private messages or comments that play the explaining or demeaning cards either way. Please make your comments in public, so that you have to take responsibility for how they come across in the context of the rest of us here who care about shit n stuff, and sometimes even some stuffstance. Clear?!
And, you lurkers who like x like 25 in under 12 seconds? Please go the fuck away, too. You are skewing my stats, and sending me an inordinate amount of bullshitic emails. I’d rather sincere engagement. 2 weeks from now, I will track through and remove you all. I will respect you more if you remove yourself. Tick tick tick… . . . . . . . . .

When you make Besties with Beasties, do you remember their names… or, are they one time stands?
How are they allies that contribute to and amplify your ability to take action? Do they integrate or ally with you? Depends, huh?
