priming the pump … happym;
how we become what we become, and how we get there from here …
Perhaps I’ve now unwittingly stumbled onto a rather deep subject for a shallow cranium here with this one. It’s a doozie, my liege, no doubt. From a rather precursory beginning in the annals of Merriam-Webster, I tend to feel myself being torn in several directions all at once. Normally I try to take one direction at a time but sometimes several directions attack me at once. Don’t you just hate it when that happens? How did I ever happen to come up with such a dumb idea anyhow? I simply can’t remember anymore. Is there something going on here that I’m hardly aware of? Am I somehow not getting my own drift? What’s my cranium up to this time, I ask myself? Have you any good ideas, my liege?
For the sake of serenity, and/or for Pete’s sake, my liege, shall we not go with Merriam-Webster’s number 3: an inadequate or insincere attempt to attain a certain condition or quality. But why did I do that, instead of something else? Will we ever know?
in search of answers … happyf;
in neatly tied thoughts and feelings and kinks …
a mere brush with a bevy of quite notable and quotable quotes …
Truth is a demure lady, much too ladylike to knock you on the head and drag you to her cave. She is there, but the [suitor] must want her and seek her out. -- William F. Buckley, Jr.
The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment. -- one Monsieur Doug Larson, perhaps the only one
A frontier is never a place; it is a time and a way of life. Frontiers pass, but they endure in their [boundaries and moxies]. -- Hal Borland
We cannot approach [sanity] as we do everything else in our push-button, instant society. There are no sanity pills or enlightenment capsules, [only pretense]. -- Janie Gustafson Where there’s a pill, there’s a way, my liege.
For him who confesses, shams are over and realities have begun; he has exteriorized his rottenness. If he has not actually got rid of it, he at least no longer smears it over with a hypocritical show of virtue. -- William James
If you do not express your own original ideas [your own cranium], if you do not listen to your own being [your own moxie], you will have betrayed yourself. -- Rollo May
Everyone is a bore to someone. That is unimportant. The thing to avoid is being a bore to oneself. -- Gerald Brenan

In the words of Rolo May..."to not express...one's ideas...not to listen...own being...is ...betrayed...yourself"...how often we see couples in sodo marriages who comprimises to the extent of denying one's true self...dying slowly for years and some for decades...to forget and neglect one's authentic self...how very very sad indeed!|
We owe it to ourselves, to our Maker...to know and to live authentically as ourselves not to what someone else's wishes.
You are amazing...so much to digest here...I shall never be hungry again I suspect when I visit you here. Thank you

Perhaps as a whole your comment makes more sense than my post. I couldn’t seem to make up my mind on exactly what I was getting at. Perhaps I finally found it in the quote near the end: When we find ourselves going in two many directions, we need to give something up, to choose which direction we want, and to stick with it. ~~Author Unknown|
