Great blog. Destructive thoughts or "stinking thinking" is an internal enemy. There are enough of those in the external world. So Kudos to you for fighting back and helping the rest of us to do so. BTW, LCC was fun, the hotel was a bit bizarre, and the price tag was high. Did you miss something? Probably. Will it make a difference in your life? I doubt it?

Ooops. There should NOT be a question mark after my last sentence.

Good advice, Mar. It reminds me of that old book, The Power of Positive Thinking. If you think you'll fail, you most likely will, but that's not always such a bad thing. I was reflecting to a friend today that, as a youth, I was in the national competition for judo. I eventually lost, and recalled that I learned more from the loss than if I had won. As I always say, there is no shame in getting knocked down. The only shame is not getting back up.


Those negative thoughts and self-doubts can be a virtual tsunami... and yep, they can drown a person and extinguish any spark of creativity. Would love to figure out where that all originates, and would love even more to get suggestions for how to channel them effectively (or just dam them up!)....
