Mod Update and Personal News

Mod Update: Welcome to all the new members Holly or I didn't get the chance to welcome personally! It's great knowing people are still finding us on teh internets and able to use our resources. I hope we'll get to be a little more active as we come out of summertime, and I'll make more of an effort to post too.

As far as community news, we have a new book added to the user info book list. Also a link with some inspirational quotes-an idea Holly had that I forgot about until I updated the mod info (btw, Holly, if you want to update any of your mod info, lemme know and I can copy/paste a new one for you) and now have time to employ. So, if you have any inspirational quotes you use or have used before, please comment with them to this post, and leave an author/source for the quote. Looking forward to seeing everyone's motivational sayings! :-)

saw Christina today...

We talked about my mom-not a big surprise there. But we went through some things that sound trivial, but were such a big deal to me. I feel lame saying them because they sound like things everyone should know, things that should be obvious-but they weren't to me.

Lesson One: It is not my job to make my mother happy.
Lesson Two: I am not the reason she in unhappy.
Lesson Three: I can learn things she didn't teach me and become a whole person by myself.
Lesson Four: I'm allowed to have a private life with boundaries.

I have never heard anyone tell me these things point blank, but Christina did today. (not in a list like that, but you know what I mean...) It was so amazing. It's not my fault my mom is unhappy with life-do you know how cool that is?! I'm not to blame!

Just thought I would spread the happiness of my discovery...hope everyone has a good week! :-) -Brit
