Sometimes, life is just...silly.

Had a dream last night that I was sitting on a park bench in some vaguely Disney-esque theme park, cuddling with ladytabitha.

Geez. I hope I'm not developing a crush on someone who lives a thousand miles away.

Wouldn't be the first time. ;-)
Yes! Crushes good! And she's so worthy of one.

Yeah.... :) It's kind of fun, really.

I hope you're not, too!  What the hell would I be doing at a theme park??

(PS - You're just saying that because I offer you ancient computer things.)

To be fair, it wasn't a particularly happy theme park...kind of dreary, really. And the monorail was like a New York subway at rush hour, totally jammed with people.

Strange thing--we were sitting on a bench outside the monorail stop, and Ihad my laptop. Periodically, a monorail would arrive, and then I'd get an email, and the monorail doors would not open until I read the email. So each time the monorail showed up, I'd have to stop what I was doing and check my email...

I like how you followed up on your generally cheery dream-description to add dreary crowded laptop details.  *amused*

Heh. Far as I can tell, when it comes to crushes on said lady, you have to wait in line. :-)

Moi? Jealous? :-)

You know, that does seem to be the way the world works--people who are open and self-confident and make themselves available to the possibility of new connections tend to get a lot of people who have crushes on them.

Amazing, just how much reality responds to our ideas about ourselves and our place in the world. I think that's a feature, not a bug. :)

ahhh, so young(ish), so wise. :-) Took me until recently to learn that. If only I'd known then, yadda yadda.

Problem is, sometimes it's hard to gain self-confidence without the world giving us back positive reinforcement. It's a chicken/egg thang.

I don't think the world is particularly interested in giving anyone reinforcement, positive or negative. Rather, the world gives you what you ask for, without caring in the least whether it's good or bad.

You can't wait for positive reinforcement before deciding to change your outlook; the choice comes first, and the reinforcement follows after. It all begins with the decision. If you look for evidence to support changing yuour outlook before you actually choose to do so, you'll never find it.
