Read this article:
I know that when I have one diet coke I would like 2, 5, 9 or maybe 57 more. That stuff is like crack cocaine for me. (Yet I must confess that I have a glass beside me now. Darn! .....and yes I want more.)
Most the time I can resist it's siren call. Today, I got sucked in totally!
A big bag of rice cakes and a BIG Diet Coke. She hangs her head in shame.
Diet coke is supposed to be a freebie treat. I drink it. I desire it. I drink more. A vicious cycle. Think it may be possible to correlate my low moods to drinking diet soda too.
In denial, my mouth wants it. Part of my brain says it's OK, fine really! --- NO calories, NO fat. When am I gonna learn that there are no freebies....? There is moderation. Except when you are like me and have to admit you can't do Diet Coke in moderation.
more, More, MORE is way better.
Hormones. A rough day. A tiff with my sister. Dad's blood pressure soaring out of control again. Having to deal with the step mother as she rapes and pillages (divorce trauma) and just adds to my Dad's misery.
I am gonna finish the glass beside me. Don't have the will power to pour it out.
But with you behind me, my steadfast Spark friends, I do promise not to have any more today. For just the rest of the day I can do this.
One day at a time.
If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don't,
If you like to win, but you think you can't
It is almost certain you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!
- Walter D. Wintle - 1905

Can I do this?
Do I have what it takes to make a difference in another's day? Maybe even some total stranger in cyberspace....
Will "they" get my humor?
Laugh with me (this is very, very, very important), cry with me, share the happiness, see something new, and open their hearts/minds? There will be days of anger and angst. (Can they read through the emotion to understand the yin/yang realities of life that I ponder? Where there is joy, there can be also be pain.)
This is about a bizarre type of connection. The ability to say what I want and connect with someone on some positive level.
There is only one way to know.....
