If the Sky Could Dream, it Would Dream of Dragons

The lovely Mrs. Fever has graced me with a truly unique award and one that I gladly accept. I have had many dragons (chinese zodiac) in my life, and each one has left a lasting impression upon me. To accept this award from a Dragon is a special gift all its own. Thanks, Feve. Love ya, babe.

SEVEN THINGS

  • I take things like Zodiac pretty seriously even though I try not to. It’s really hard not to when you so rightfully match up with yours.
  • I used to want to be a psychologist, but I didn’t think that with my own mental disorder I could handle the stress of the job.
  • I leave little pieces of myself places. Every person in my life gets someone different… a piece of me that someone else might not get or understand. This blog gets the part of me that I share with no one, except for my partner(s), which is why I am quite wary about meeting people who know me via the blog, in spite of the deep sense of community I feel.
  • I have a hard time processing “in-betweens.” I tend to be all or nothing in everything I do, especially in my relationships with friends, family or lovers. If I love you, I would do anything for you. If I hate you, I wouldn’t piss on you if you were on fire. Naturally, this complicates things.
  • I’m a hypocrite through and through and I hate hypocrites! I hate secrets, but I keep plenty myself. I hate lies, but I lie like I get paid for it nearly every day. I hate Florida but I love the ocean. You get the picture.
  • My self esteem is in the toilet, but my self confidence is through the roof. I hate myself, but I am immeasurably arrogant. I believe (at times) that no one wants a thing to do with me, and then I tell myself that I can have anything that I want (and will go to incredible lengths to get it, if only for the ego boost it provides). Sometimes I wonder if I’m a terrible person, and sometimes I don’t care if I am.
  • I question my motivation for this blog on at least a bi-weekly basis. I’ve thought many times about deleting it, or making it all private. I wonder if it is a selfish collection of stories for me to look back upon when my time is up. I wonder if it really is a tool I use to decompress, or if it is a tool I use to communicate to Sir. I wonder if I just keep it up because it helps me feel less alone.

Dragon:  yang; symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it; the most highly honored animal in the hierarchy; upwardly rising, though not as a phoenix; guarder of treasure, keeper of strength, ruler of all elements; benevolent and wise, but not without fierceness and pride.

Dragon Loyalty:  to demonstrate a willingness to fly, to learn, to ascend to new heights, to look ever upward, to be more; to guard what you treasure, to take pride in your values, and do so with fortitude and forbearance; to find strength in your scaly armor as well as the tender heart that armor guards.

DRAGON LOYALTY AWARDS

(for facing ever-upward, finding strength in the journey, and learning to fly)
I try not to assign awards to people who have already received them:

Hyacinth
Cara
Marian
LSAM
Sadey–as she embarks on a new journey. Good luck, dear. :]
I’d like to nominate my dear, dear Dawn, but Feve beat me to the punch. 😛

To those who would accept this award:  望子成龍 — Be As A Dragon

  1. The “in-betweens”… Bleh.

    I have a very hard time with the concept of “acquaintances” for this very reason. And I’ve found, partly because of my all-or-nothingness, that I function best in autonomous positions where work is concerned. Because I don’t love the people I work with, and many of them… Well, fire is a bit extreme. But more than a few could use a good bitch-slapping.

    • Somehow I knew you would understand this instinctively.

      Bitch-slapping… heh. That’s what daydreams and fantasies are for, my love. 😉

      Xoxo

    • I don’t meet a lot of people that get really invested in their sign, but when I do it’s almost always Leos! My twitter has become a sad, long line of #Leo retweets because I keep seeing things that hit me right in the gut!

      xoxo

  2. What a coincidence! I either love or hate everything around me too. I guess what falls in the middle doesn’t even capture my interest.

    I need to get my ass in gear and do this award. If I receive one, I’m so flattered and then I can rarely get myself to take the next, logical step. Action!

    Bises,
    Me

    • I usually take much longer than this to do awards, or I don’t do them (bad girl, I know) but I was very intrigued by this one.

      xoxo
