PAINTING MYSELF IN THE PROVERBIAL CORNER

Well, after MUCH procrastination/distraction/various other avoidance tactics, I wrote the flippin' pages I needed to write. That's the good news. The bad news is that in doing so, I painted myself in an emotional corner. I'm stuck now - no way out, only option is to step on the newly painted floor and make a big mess.

I hate big messes.

But I can't just "stand" here.

And so I venture from my emotional corner, one tentative foot at a time, gingerly moving forward and through the emotions that got all stirred up.

I think a walk and good conversation with a friend will ease you out of that corner. At any rate I hope so.

Put on all your pearls, trudge through that sticky paint and just get it all over you.

LOVE YOU.

Go ahead and make a mess. Coming out on the other side is far better than staying stuck in the corner.

You're amazing. We are rooting for you.

that's what the flippin' rewrite is all about my friend...

Love you.

Paint wears off in time, just like the sharp edges of most emotional messes.

Crap! This rewriting stuff is so much harder than I imagined!

Just remember, the footprints you make with the paint will absolutely, positively be gorgeous, as most honest messes are.

Love!

I have 100% faith in you, you'll be out of that corner in no time. AND, the lessons you will learn from it, will be priceless. Noone keeps you in a corner for long, not even yourself.

Keep moving. Your so close.
