I love Johnny Depp. I especially love him when he teams up with Tim Burton and his enchanting wife, Helena Bonham Carter. The result is usually dark and artistic, and there are always lots of beautiful faces to entertain me. I rarely go to the theater anymore so usually I'm a few months behind everyone else in watching films, as I wait for them to appear on DVD. So last night I finally got to watch their collaboration "Alice In Wonderland". It didn't disappoint.
There were several catchy lines and memorable phrases used in the film. I especially liked the line about Alice losing her "muchness". In fact, I believe I've lost my own "muchness", and I intend to get it back. But the phrase that stood out the most for me was a motto of Alice and her father. It was a phrase that was used a few times in the film and I love it. I think I'll use it as my motto for awhile.
"I try to believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast".
Yes, I like that. I'll use it in an attempt to regain my "muchness". Indeed.
A codependent person is one who has let another person's behavior affect him or her, and who is obsessed with controlling that person's behavior.

About This Journal
In 2008 I had the life changing realization that there was a name for what I'd always felt was "wrong" with me. After 20 years of thumbing through various self-help books. I learned about codependence.
I began writing this journal to document my journey out. Over time, it's evolved into something more. While I still talk about codependence (I know now, it will never totally leave me), this blog has turned into the thumbprint of my life; a therapeutic journal for me to sort out a lifetime of thoughts and memories. I believe in being honest with myself and others, and when something is bothering me, I reach out. With a support team of strong, smart women surrounding us, we can all continue to grow. I'm trying to live my best life, in pursuit of a Healthy Mind, a Healthy Body.
