Forgotten Lessons

As I have moved through the world, I have learned important lessons through experience. (I need to remember this when I attempt to impart a valuable life lesson to my teen-aged son through sheer force of will. For example, the ONLY way that he will come to know that "Time will heal a broken heart" is to have his broken heart broken, then see it heal over time.)


<------------------------As IF we are given an instruction manual!

However, I have also noticed that my emotional/spiritual growth has been neither linear, nor on some kind irreversible continuum. When in my 20's, I somehow assumed that when I was OLD, I would be WISE...that it was a balanced equation.


In reality, I frequently forget what I know. But life has a way of jogging my memory. Which brings me to my post of yesterday.


I really squirmed when I wrote that post. I'm not crazy about exposing aspects of myself that I consider unattractive. I also don't like NOT having the answer. I don't like feeling stuck between a "rock and a hard place." I don't like it when my impulses clash with reason. However, this is usually how I feel when life is about to jog my memory.


This morning I read absolutelynormal's blog. She finished her post with, and I quote:

"Loveless sex (well ok, without some serious "like" going on) does about as much for me as sexless love. I've had both and they suck."


I KNEW that. I just needed someone to jog my memory

An instruction manual wouldn't be much good, all kids are different. Personally, I think that's a good thing..........it's what makes each of us special.

Aw heck clever, just when I was having so much fun with yesterday's post you get all mature on me. Darn.

That you found a diamond on Mac's blog comes as no surprise to me. She's great.

Peace.

Note of wisdom:

One of the most powerful motivators is to seek agreement.
One of the most powerful reinforcers is being right.

MATURE and FUN don't HAVE to be mutually exclusive!! Besides, he would probably put me in a back brace, just when I have SO MUCH to do here!

True clever, so true. But I bet you could still do it even in a back brace.

Peace

Sex mixed with love or at least a heavy dose of LIKE is the only kind I really get off on.
Sometimes those reminders show up in the oddest places.
