You know we're always on your side, right?


One of the last things you said above is so true. I spend an incredible amount of time talking about getting my shit together and doing things. I have to do items that I change the due date on a regular basis. It took me 11 months from the time I registered my domain name of my blog to when I actually went live with it. But things do happen in small amounts. And that's a start I can live with for now. Adding more to the list is getting easier to manage now that I have some accomplishments behind me.


the first step has been made... the journey may be rough in spots... and there is no finish line... you're on the road to glory, my friend... good luck!


Good for you Hilly! You can do anything you want, if you really want. Isn't it true that no one can make it happen but ourselves. I'm trying a little of that myself lately. You CAN make it happen :o)


Love you.


Good for you. Just keep reconfirming your promise to yourself. You'll get there!

Miss Britt

The first step is the hardest.

I know it's cliche, but it's true. It gets easier and easier after that first step.

And also - Florida is awesome. Just... so you know. ;-)


Baby steps if you need to but steps just the same.



I've got your back.

And, paradoxically, I think I'm going to take your lead.

Mr. Fabulous

Britt is right. The first step IS the hardest. But once you get going, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.

I'm here for you. Even if it doesn't involve fisting.


Happiness is a choice.

Misery is a choice.

You deserve that first one up there.


You are rock now, imagine how great you will be. :)

Whatever you need. I'm an email away. (Well, except for money.)

hello haha narf

i am proud of you for taking the first step because change is scary. even good change.

just don't ever forget that you deserve WONDERFUL things my friend.

lots of long distance hugs and support.


Aw, honey, I'm here. I know these times are tough. If you need to talk, you know where to find me.


You just took the first step. Congratulations.



You know that I'm always there if you need someone to vent to.

And, also know that I understand more than you can possibly realize.


They say talk is cheap but sometimes it's all we can afford. I've been talking about changing careers, losing weight, etc., etc. for the past 20+ yrs. so I'm not one to be giving advice on the subject. It doesn't sound like you're letting life pass you by but if you need a bitch slap I could hire someone (I know people). :)


One step at a time is the best way to approach it all. That's all anyone can ask for. And, no, we are not complaining or wanting to shake you or anything of the sort. We're here for you just like we've always been.


But I am your neighbor! Unless, of course, Britt wins. Heh. More than baby steps... you gotta realize that if you bite off more than you can chew, you will give up. It's human nature to do that. So, being the turtle in this race is really the smart thing to do. Besides, it gives you time to sightsee, and have a drink, and think some more... you get the picture. And I'm here. I'm a very sympathetic - and empathetic - listener. Besides, being old and wise and all that bullshit. ;)


Love you, sweets. I have realized a lot of shit about myself, too, and that is that I'm happiest when I'm actively doing something in my life. The traveling and constant support from my friends is making enormous differences in me. I just need to keep the momentum going when I get home on Thursday.


I feel ya and I think you've inspired me to take a few baby steps myself.


Good for you Love...now get to it! : )


Oh Hilly, is there too many times to say I know exactly what you are talking about. I think I am about 3 steps behind you though and am no where near the breakthrough you appear to be experiencing. It sounds stupid (to me, but then most things I say sound stupid to me at the moment) but I am so proud to know you in this little way that I think I do.

You give me something to aspire towards.


I'm finally at the same point you are. I'm tired of trying to figure out how to start. I'm just going to start and stop dickering around with making sure it's perfect, fail-proof because nothing in life is perfect and/or fail-proof.

We deserve to be better to ourselves. We deserve more. And the only person holding me back is me. I know that now. There is no one to blame but myself.

Okay, so I'm accepting responsibility. I'm owning it.

Now, on to a better life. A happier life.

I know you are there too.


I didn't even think it. I am the last person to say or think it. You know? That stuff about glass houses and all...

By the way, you weren't "rehashing"; you were "processing."


Change is scary, but necessary. I used to embrace change, I loved change. I would go off at a moment's notice to places far away. But, now I seem to fear it a little but I know one thing. Change is good, it is not so scary once you get started.

I'm dealing with my own crappola that is my life, well part of my life. Hope you are on your road to happier days too.
