Jacked from a bunch of people...

I know that 2009 was pretty horrid for a lot of people (heh), and to be honest, 2010 has been no great shakes so far. One way we might make the rest of 2010 a bit better is to spread some love around. So if you care to reply to this post I will give you a response of something I like about you.

If you like participating in these sorts of things and want to repost this in your LJ, that would be fun, too.

i feel: curious curious

I could use some love.

Your bravery in talking about what you're going though gives me the courage to talk about my issues, and know that I'm not whining.

And you've been so supportive, even though you hardly know me. I don't know how you had it in you to offer that to me, and thank you. *hug*

Well... there's the way you chose to respond to this post, which is AWESOME.

But more than that, you're so talented, and terribly generous, and I love how proud you are of your heritage. And I love how you share Lily's growth with all of us -- it's so beautiful! *hug*

Wanted to send you hugs. I suspect you have a few bad years ahead - although each will get a little better.

But, we are here to listen to you rant and rave and give you lots of love.

So, what I like about you is your strength and love and your warrior spirit that showed as you took care of Wolfie when he was unable to tell you want he needed.

I don't like disagreeing with people, but I'm going to here.

I don't think the years to come are going to be bad. Different than I expected, certainly. But different doesn't mean bad. I have so many blessings and so many wonderful people and so much love in my life that for me to say that the years to come will be bad would be an insult to them.

I know you didn't mean it that way, though, and I am really grateful for your support. :-)

Even when things suck, you always try to look on the bright side. I love that aggressive optimism!

You love the people you love so fiercely, and you're not afraid to tell them.

You just fucking rock, and I wish you were closer, because I really liked hanging out with you when you were local. ;-)

I love how strong you are, Tasha. And knowledgeable about knitting!

I love the way you explore your interests, and how excited it makes you. I also really enjoyed the teasers you posted of your NaNoWriMo project, and I hope we get to read the whole story someday.

You have an awesome sense of humor, even when things are kinda sucky, and it's fun to see the interplay between you and nazrynn -- you two so clearly adore each other.

I have really enjoyed watching your journey from grad school till now. I admire your strength in taking on cats with health and socialization issues -- I don't know that I could do it, after losing Max. Your kitties are lucky to have you.

I really admire your humor and positive attitude in the face of the health and family issues you face. *hug*

tashabear From: tashabear Date: January 23rd, 2010 02:05 am (UTC) (base camp)
It's the bouncing and wiggling. *grin*

And also the love and openness you show us all. My life is better for having you in it.

This should be interesting.
tashabear From: tashabear Date: January 23rd, 2010 02:07 am (UTC) (base camp)
I friended you because I liked your writing, and I thought you'd be an interesting addition to my friend's list. I wasn't wrong. I like your determination and the self-awareness you're showing in this journey through law school -- it's helping me stay focused on what I have to do to get my career in healthcare going.

Nice icon. ;-)

I'm glad we found each other umpty-ump years after high school. You're fun to chat with, and I hope we'll get to ride together sometime soon. :-D *hug*

Oh my god, what's not to love? I can feel the exuberance and determination and love in every word you write. *hug* Love you.
