silly girl

i could fall
like a star or
an angel
or just a silly girl
fall for the way
your voice gets soft
and your hands
are rough
and your mind
is sharp
and winds through mine
like your fingers
twisting
in my palm
and my hair
kisses dusting like
snow or powdered
sugar
falling already
past common sense
falling
without a net
knowing already
how hard
i'll land.

I miss you A, wherever you are, crazy as that sounds...

i wish you were here, the way you were, before things got all crazy...

i've got such a new life now, you wouldn't recognize me...except for the cats....

so different yet so much the same

I gave you all I had
I gave you good and bad
I gave but you just threw it back

I won't get on my knees
Don't make me do that please
I've been away but now I'm back

Don't be too sure of that
What makes you sure of that
You went away, you can't come back

I walked away from you
I hurt you through and through
Aw honey give me one more chance

Aw you're a lucky son
Lucky son of a gun
You went away, you went away
You went away but now you're back

I got down on my knees
And then I begged you please
I always knew you'd take me back

not that was exactly what happened, but you get the point....some things never change....like me...

*******************************************************

Jen, your Heart's Desire is 8

You want success in its fullest meaning -- wealth, power, and material comforts. You have an enormous ambition. You dream of big projects, great undertakings, and rewards.

You are a visionary. You see the horizon and the promise. In general, you also see the methods necessary to fulfill that promise. But you are not especially good with details; you need others to help you deal with the smaller parts of the picture. Your challenge is to make full use of the full spectrum of your abilities, as indicated by your other core numbers. In the same way, you must bring forth the best from others and orchestrate their talents toward the realization of your vision. In short, you must lead by example, demonstrating the standard for commitment, determination, and excellence.

All of this requires effort on your part. You will meet with obstacles and difficulties. Your determination and commitment will be tested. But you have the power to overcome every obstacle you face and accomplish the goal you've set for yourself.

Your task in life is to learn to use power in refined and elevated ways. The expression and use of power is directly related to one's personal evolution. The more primitive uses of power rest with violence and the threat of deprivation. The higher expressions depend upon your capacity to care for and nourish the people and projects in your charge, giving each exactly what is needed at the appropriate time and in appropriate amounts.

You have a creative mind and an unusual approach to business and problem-solving.

You need to cultivate your ability to evaluate others.

It is essential for you to be involved in a project that challenges you and offers the potential for rewards. When you are uninvolved or unoccupied with a worthwhile task, you can become deeply despondent, depressed, and frustrated. You are the perfect example of the old cliche, "Idle hands are the devils workshop." Without a challenge, you can lose balance in life and become selfish, cruel, and even self-destructive. Disappointments become shattering, causing terrible consequences in self-image and self-love.

Perspective is everything for you. You have a natural talent for balancing the spiritual and material planes.

You need to cultivate courage and stamina. Courage is a choice. You need to decide to be brave in the face of fear. A balanced 8 is among the most powerful and satisfying of numbers. It is the spirit of the true survivor, able to bounce back and achieve a greater victory.


Mr. X, your Heart's Desire is 12/3

You love a good time. You are generally happy, friendly, and outgoing. You have a gift for gab. You are very witty, creative, and playful. You inspire and entertain people. You are considered by many a great companion.

Many outstanding comedians have this Heart's Desire. You have a good mental and emotional balance and there is little that gets you down.

You have a gift for self expression and are drawn to the verbal arts -- writing, acting, singing, and poetry. You may have a great talent in one of these areas. If your creativity is blocked or suppressed, you tend to daydream and fantasize. Your imagination needs a constructive outlet; otherwise, it may run away with you.

At the same time, you may have great difficulty expressing your deeper feelings and important personal thoughts. You prefer to stay on the surface, entertaining people with your wit.

If you fail to deal honestly with your inner nature, you may succumb to compulsive talking. Such behavior may be merely a way of siphoning off emotional energy that is building beneath your surface. Your deeply felt emotional life cannot be avoided or suppressed. But you possess the talent to channel these feelings into highly creative and artistic form. Art and self-expression are your outlets.

You need discipline to make full use of your abilities. Too often, you may scatter your energies in many directions, beginning projects that are never finished and never really succeeding in anything.

You success depends on your ability to commit to your work and to see it through to completion. You have so much creativity and inspiring upward energy that you are in desperate need of an anchor. Hard work and discipline serve this purpose and bring out the best in you.

Because you are gifted with such a sparkling personality, you are tempted to stay on the surface and play with life. You are confident and love the attention others give you, but these characteristics can lead to vanity and self-absorption.

You have the potential to live a very full and successful life thanks to your talent for artistic self expression. The key to your success is a balance between the creative forces and self-disclose.


Your Heart's Desire's compatibility is 8 and 3

Mr. X and Jen, the three and the eight affect one in very different ways. So, when these two numbers appear together in this part of the chart, the couples are compatible in some areas, incompatible in others. Mr. X brings in the creative, somewhat scattered, but yet inspiring and uplifting energy. Jen is more ambitious, goal-oriented and focused. You are both energetic and capable of turning dreams into reality, even though with different approaches. Quite often, this combination is seen between business partners, or long-time friends who start a business together. In that environment, Mr. X would be the initial creative source, while Jen would be the visionary. Together, you could do very well.

You are also both good communicators. Mr. X has the ability to clarify an issue with a sense of humor and pinpoint precision. Jen takes a more practical approach by simply grabbing the bull by the horns.

In many ways, Mr. X and Jen, you complement each other and are quite compatible, as revealed in this part of the chart. But, just like in any other number combination, there are areas where problems may arise.

Jen is ambitious, practical and capable of sustained effort for a long period of time in order to reach a goal. Mr. X also has the energy and drive needed to make things happen, but Mr. X may drop a project when it is no longer interesting or when other projects become more important. This can be upsetting to Jen, who feels that a commitment, such as a set goal, should be honored at any rate - - anything less is unacceptable to Jen.

Mr. X, on the other hand, will sometimes feel that Jen’s priorities are too much directed to Jen’s own needs and expectations. Jen can be quite demanding, while Mr. X is more easy-going - - if something doesn’t work out, oh well, let’s try something else. Jen doesn’t accept that and feels that the whole purpose of setting a goal is to overcome the obstacles one is bound to encounter.

In the end, the issue comes down to respect. The three and the eight have such different views as to what is important in life that, unless they learn to respect each other’s needs and expectations, the relationship will not last long. However, more often than not, the three and the eight get along quite well.

my head is buzzing and my body feels electric...but for all this psychic energy, i am blank...i came to work today because i couldn't think of anything better to do...i need to vacuum and do laundry but i spent all yesterday afternoon reading...i was exhausted after a day at dog beach and so was my little paco...he crashed out when we got home and ignored all the kitties sniffing him...i feel the excitement of expectation...not that i know him, because i don't, but that i might get to know him...i feel like i've been alone for so long in this crazy head of mine, i wouldn't even know how to let anyone in...i feel like i have to keep up this front of being superwoman, independent and strong and sassy, and i don't know how someone - a certain someone - would react to seeing my weakness...all i let him see is the me that doesn't need anyone else, when that is such a lie...and then i wonder what i would even do with a boyfriend, when my life is quiet and removed and self-contained...someone to camp with, ride roller coasters with, hug & kiss...and then there's all that other crapola that i have tried to put behind me...there are so many things i would rather not have to admit that i've done, not that i'm necessarily ashamed, but saying them brings them back, and that is just a painful reminder that i have spent much of my life being stupid and selfish and wasteful...but the more i pretend to be this grown-up successful woman, the more it becomes true...and i just have to trust that if i ever love & am loved again, they will not care about my past...my soul has been quiet lately, but his kiss kickstarted something in me that leaves me trembling and trying to remember the line of his jaw & the softness of his hair, the way his hand felt on my cheek, the blue of his eyes & the gap in his teeth, and i wonder if i can be objective enough to do what is best for me and my life...i stopped dating a year ago because i knew i was making awful choices, and i needed time to be alone so that i could figure out what kind of man would be good for me...well, i've gotten a substantial raise at work, i have lost 35 pounds (with 40 more to go), i have fucked up and done some other awful things...on the whole though i feel stronger than i did on the eve of my 29th birthday, and now that 30 is around the corner, maybe i am ready to give to someone else while still holding on to what i have, and what i have become...

almost...5...o...clock...

should i...

go to gym?

or go to dad's and beg for money to buy cat food for tucker?

or, i could kill two birds etc and just give tucker all my food...
lush

general malaise...

what is wrong with me? i mean, i know whats WRONG wrong, but i've just been in this keep-my-head-down-stick-close-to-home funk. sure i needed a break from the big bad world after the work-hell of last week, but i think this recent pinched nerve is just a manifestation of my greater fear of engaging in life. if i'm in pain, i can feel justified not leaving the house.

maybe i need my meds adjusted again. or healthy food. or therapy.

because...i love my new apartment, my new kitty tucker, and yes, i even kinda love that boy. (he does have the bluestblueyblue eyes...)

but i miss twinkle with fresh pain everyday. i can't find the energy to ever finish unpacking, or go to the gym, or even do the laundry. curling up in bed and hiding is not helping. i need to get the fuck out and see some new scenery or have a conversation at the coffeeshop or walk through that lil bit o' nature we call the back bay. i need to do something besides obsessively crave mi casa and pick lint out of the carpet. work calls all the time, nights, weekends, whatever. but thats just an excuse. if i tell gina i'm taking off for the weekend, well then what can she do? maybe i should just GO this weekend, maybe joshua tree, maybe palm springs, just somewhere vast and lonely to clear my head. maybe.

anyhoo. gotta work. be back later.

a happy lazy sunday...happy for some alone time, quiet, sunshine, kitties...this is all i want out of life...and i have it...go me...

by the end of the month, i'll have enough for a deposit on my OWN PLACE...i am trying so so so hard not to go shopping (i still have clothes with tags on them, clothes that need to be washed, need to go to the dry cleaner, i CANNOT go shopping)...getting my raise was the last little boost i needed...after 13 months - or 28 yrs, however you want to look at it - i am finally shaping a plan to get out of the nest...an actual plan, instead of just moving around randomly, pawning my stereo to pay rent, etc etc...i also decided to clean my room for 30 minutes a day...not just my room, but my car, my closet, really get rid of stuff...

but today is a happy lazy sunday, so i can justify another 24 hours of procrastination, and read with the kitty...this will be my last quiet time for at least another week, monday morning i go back to tomuchworktoolittlesleep mode and piyo & tkb & powersculpt and insanity...yay...

hello


hello


hello


i've been thinking about coming back?

is anyone there?

is it safe?

i have missed you...


please tell me what major events i have missed in your lives...

i have been a busy busy girl, leading the kind of life i only dreamed of two years ago...hell, a year ago...

and they're all my dreams...and they're coming true...and its all my doing...well, me and God...

i understand people have a problem...issue...confusion...with my being a Christian...

i am still jen...just a more loving, forgiving, peaceful jen...happy, serene, centered, fulfilled

is that so bad? and, no, i am not judging you...and no, MOM, i am not voting republican...

but i have found this serenity for a reason...and it does not make me perfect...and i do tons of shitty things...but i pray every day for strength and forgiveness and guidance...and now i know where to direct these prayers...and please do not forget, i did not make these changes solely alone...i asked - no DARED - God to come into my heart and change it...change my life...and within six months i had an awesome boyfriend, a great job, and i'd quit drinking...and the biggest change was in my heart...the one thing i'd thought impossible...

tell me the difference, and tell me i'm weak for my 'crutch'...

if i want to follow a good example - and my life wasn't going so great, if you recall - then i got what i wished for...and more...

my friends still love me...so does my boy...i work out everyday, and i'm getting skinnier (right, nico?)...i work my ass off at a job where i am challenged and needed...i haven't read lj in months, and i hope that you will fill me in through comments, i would love to come back into your lives if you will have me, and be caught up, i miss this more than you know...i left out of fear and pain, and i'm back because i loved this more than that...

whether a myth or a lie or the truth or whatever, there are worse people to emulate than jesus...please don't judge me for that, whatever your prejudices...i know i had my own disdain for christians...

love,
jen
