Is It Just Human or Defectual?

Feeling a bit insecure. The question I ask myself; is it just me being human or is this a defectual part of my being? For most people I think its human nature, to feel a little insecure, less then, for a moment and then snap back to reality of "Hey I'm a strong, successful, independent women, I'm ok with me"! I am so glad I don't feel this way very often. I think if insecurity is a defectual part of your nature then you would bask in the mind f***ing that comes along with feelings of a victim of life. The poor me. The jealousy that runs paralel to insecurity. The Jealousy that runs parelel to being a victim of life. I guess its all about choices. Each day we wake up we have to ask ourselves, "What am I worth to myself today"? For me, I worth getting up to the birds of spring chriping, to the sun shining, to a long hot shower, clean clothes, fresh coffee and a great job. I get to chat with my friends on my long drive to work, listen to the morning show, come home to a family thats all mine and just live. Thats what its all about, this life thing. Enjoying and soaking up all the good and leaving behind the negative forces of human nature. Moving into a place of love and acceptance for me. Finding the love for myself on the inside. Peaceful.

Is Everyone Birthing Baby Calves?

I know...let me count.....7?? Women who are having babies! Holy Jesus, get the manger ready!! I guess its my age?? Everyone is about at that point in life to have a family. I want one of those! All I can think of these days is, crap, when can I make time to clean my house??? Wedding planning has taken over my life....I dream it, day dream it and do it ALL DAY LONG!!! My gosh....So after the wedding we are going off the Birth I better get my house in order so i feel like I have it together! The simple task of cleaning the house makes me feel so grounded and I won't do your house :-) Really raising a child???...I have this vision of slow days.....gardening with my little girl....having a quiet picnic under the trees with the warm sun on my back....telling her how water makes the earth moist and gives the plants and trees nutrients to grow...then the plant grow and spout leaves and sometimes fruit and then we can eat it....ahhhh....a nice dinner later that evening....I can picture it so back to reality...I have to work, kids have school, sports, arts, there is crying and naughty boys and girls! I think I'll still be long as I get my dream visions occasionally! I laugh heartily.....
