Entry #45: The Relief of Getting Over Myself

Dear All:
With the garden as happy as can be this summer season, is there any way to control our emotions when our loved ones may not be loving and kind towards us? I am the nicest person in the world when things are going my way. If we can lose our self importance (ego) with everybody & everything, we may just get some relief from ourselves. 
If I do not react when loved ones 1) listen to me with judgment 2) say something of unbearable truth to me (but its true) 3) talk instead of listen 4) display unfavorable actions that I may not agree with 5) share something unfavorable that someone else said 6) withhold info that I am "attaching to" 7) shout at me 8) do not do what I have asked them to do 9) have passive aggressive tendencies towards me 10) cannot look within, then I am Getting Over Myself, and what a relief it is, right?

  1. I Got Over Myself today, what a relief! 
  2. If I let go of my ego today, I'm good to go. 
As the sun shines on the garden and the flowers beam with pride, while we are totally getting over ourselves, even when others throw their ego bullshit our way, nothing can go that wrong right?

Let's pray for the women, children and animals who need our fierce protection at all times.
With Love and Sincerely,


  1. Yep. You give us all a good reminder that we we must get over ourselves on a regular basis. It takes self-awareness and some effort but if we are able to accomplish it, it is quite freeing, isn't it? You rock it, Krissy!

  2. Hi Liz
    Oh thank you dear lady from Tiburon.

    Get Over Myself has been a lesson like no other. I can manage my reactive crazy and del importance all at the same time.

    Thank you for contributing, I so appreciate it.

    Love ya girl.


  3. I think I have surrounded myself with animals because it's easier to live with them than with people. It's hard to get over ourselves all the time! And people force us to do so more than animals do... although I had to get over myself quite a bit with Tommy. You're on a righteous path, Kristen. It's wonderful that you share the journey here. I love it. xoxo

  4. Hi Sue:

    Well dogs are the buddhaists of our universe right? You would think that humans would understand this by now, since we are in such tizzy (my fav word this week) with ourselves and others all of the time - sigh. If we could let go, stop attaching and be in the loving state which is to give love and receive (boy Finn is so good at accepting love which is so dear to me) than we would be just a bit more happy, right lamb?

    Thank you for contributing to this effort, I so appreciate it.

    Love you girl,
