Feeling great, moving forward and I hope I haven't been rude or short on this board

Hello un-seen community!

I've been posting here for a little while and absolutely love it. I enjoy reading the posts, responses and even enjoy reading some of the persnickity posts or the ones in which certain posters have their own arguments in the middle of a thread.

Lately, I've been going through a lot and I've found some of my responses to the posts of others to be emotionally charged as if I'm taking things literally or personally or both. I've even re-read some of my posts and been surprised at how abrupt or even near-rude I've been.

Really? I'm not like that.

Then, it hit me today when I finally made the decision that has been lingering over my head--I AM going to go back to school Full Time (phew) and I am NOT going to take that full time job that is soooo tempting and that I am being offered before anyone else.

Suddenly, I feel lighter, better and a LOT LESS emotional. I can't believe how easy that was!

Anyway, my point here is to apologize if I "sounded rude in any of my responses on this board--I've had a lot on my mind and I don't really mean to be mean.

So, I'm going to continue enjoying things here, finding new ideas, reading about things that I don't agree with and responding when I like.

And, yes, I'm bragging about going back to school. It is taking a lot of my guts to give up that job and to go back full time so I'm pretty proud of my decision. I'm looking forward to our "conversations"..

Jennifer

      I just loved your post and wish you all the best. It has been interesting to me also to go back and look at posts and wonder why I was so emotional/rude on a subject. I am so glad you've found a way to move forward and stay part of this group. Good luck on your journey, keep us informed.

          Escondido, I have never seen any of your posts to be less than respectful.
