I Just Decided This....Just Decided It This Very Minute
I was watching Laura Bush talk to Oprah about her new book "Spoken From The Heart" the other night, and I couldn't help but think how beautiful, articulate, and engaging she was. I found myself intrigued with what she had to say, and thought how much more interesting and intelligent she seemed than her husband.
In fact, I feel the same way about Barbara Bush, Michelle Obama, and in some ways, Hillary Clinton.
Throughout history, many women have been powerful rulers over great nations. Contrary to what most Americans may believe, it is not a new concept. Nefertiti, Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Queen Elizabeth I, Catherine the Great, Golda Meir, and Indira Ghandi are just a small sampling of them.
After watching the last few men this country has had in office, I've decided it's high time we put a woman in charge.
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.
The following two "Detach" journal entries will give you a crash course:

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.
