Ah, Kiwi Girl -- how much coincidence is there in life? I remember many "tough love" comments you had made to me in the past, and I am sorely in need of some of "that" today. So, it was particularly fortituous that you posted on this board recently and I can address this to you.

Due to a number of factors (all not within my control)my "past" life has been triggered quite a bit since the beginning of this new year. Keep in mind that this has got to be the year when I start making some changes albeit big or small because there is no comfort in the uncomfortableness that I have been existing in for the last several years.

I address this to you Kiwi because you were always forthright and honest and I valued your opinions even if they smarted a bit -- actually that is when I knew how right on the money you were!

I am just going through a very sad period right now where I look behind, look at the present and look to the future and say - really, is this all there is? I seem to have lost the threads of hope that I believed in even after the divorce and just wonder what is it that I should do next (now)?

I like you, love (adore) being a grandmother. But, like many of my friends, I know that position is wonderful but it is not about "me." I love being with my children and grandchildren, but at the end of the day / night, I am alone with myself and I tired of that feeling and this reality.

So, I need a jumpstart for this year. Any practical (and magical would be appreciated) suggestions?

Very glad to read your posts and all the other old-timers -- can't say enough about how this board kept my sanity for a couple of years when the going was really tough!
Take care and happy new year - Bacall
