*Once upon a time, I thought I'd join a summer softball league because Sonny threw it out there on FB. I quickly learned that it wasn't anything like I expected, and at times I seriously wanted to quit....and even tried. Sonny was pretty positive and encouraged me to always do my best, since he thought I already was. I never like quitting things, so I'm thankful for his reassurance. I'm actually gonna miss my team, such fun & funny people!
*I've been spending a lot more time with Mr. Red lately. Man, I couldn't be more blessed to have him in my life. Since my best friend has been in MIA, it's been nice having confidant I can share everything with. We've been talking about how to better handle stress, since I tend to fail at it. I know I need to be better at taking a step back, taking a deep breath, and analyze why I'm mad/stressed and what I'm going to do to deal with it. We talked about a lot of different things and it was good to just clear my mind. I've been so mentally exhausted, this past week. It's been good to release all of that tension and learn to still release all of it. I'm learning and it's gonna be a process. I haven't been doing such a good job at "releasing" and I've been filled with so much tension. Stressed about so many different things has started to catch up to me and it's no wonder my Meniere's has been terrible lately. I need to find an outlet, fast. He's such a happy guy and the way he explains his happiness is definitely something worth trying. I'm not saying that I'm not happy, it's just that I've been a lot more stressed and frustrated, lately. That is not good! Ugh. It's a process and won't come overnight, but I'm hopeful for a good change to come about.
*I had a date last Thursday evening. I went to see Bourne Legacy with the Baker. It was ok, both the movie and the date. I'm still learning things about the Baker and vice versa. I appreciate the way he communicates with me. I know communication is very important in a relationship/friendship, but sometimes I tend to fail at that when feelings & a man are involved. Sometimes, when I get frustrated, I don't know how to communicate my feelings properly. Not all men read minds like Mr. Red (seriously, he can read me so perfectly that it scares/fascinates me), but I also shouldn't be comparing guys. Anyways, Baker...I like him and he likes me. We're doing this lil thing called, "dating" and I'm learning what that's all about....learning about him....learning about myself..... man, it's different. I'm glad he's so patient because I tend to fail at that, he's willing to talk through a problem and find a solution and how he can be part of the solution. I really like that. Well, we'll see where this all goes..... so yep, I'm dating someone. Wow, that thought still seems a lil foreign to me. I guess it's because Baker & I have been friends since last year, but I never thought it'd really get to this point of "dating". Oh well, I'll get use to it...
G'nite. Tomorrow my "plan" starts....wish me luck!
