Every diaper is different

Three different runs, with three different coaches, that all brought a similar message back to me. I had been really struggling with myself, and many of the pressures and stresses that surrounded me.  Here, in the quiet and dark I found the voices of a pre-recorded, guided run telling me a similar message (perhaps that … Continue reading Every diaper is different

The Difference Between “Can” and “Should”

I sense a theme in my own life as I had written potential post ideas down for later conceptualization and developing thoughts into words for a post.  The three latest topics I have written down refer to action and discretion.  This is the first I have decided to revisit because it is the oldest on … Continue reading The Difference Between “Can” and “Should”

Now what? – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 13

We did it!  We’ve made it through “You’re Not Broken” or you’ve at least made it through my hopefully coherent ramblings about self acceptance and growth as an Adult Baby Diaper Lover (or ABDL).   My question to both myself, and to you, is “where do we go from here?” What have you learned?  What have … Continue reading Now what? – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 13

300 pages and 200 posts

If you want to grow, familiarize yourself with being uncomfortable. It is in that space where we are outside of our comfort zone in which we can improve ourselves in all aspects of life.  When I began running and exercising everything hurt.  It was a continuation of running and exercising coupled with better eating and … Continue reading 300 pages and 200 posts

Why I pad up – The power of proactively padding

I have wanted to read through the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People again with the lens of ABDL, but haven’t been able to get it scheduled yet.  While thinking about this post I almost wanted it to kick start that effort, but I think I will leave this post as standalone for now, and … Continue reading Why I pad up – The power of proactively padding

Looking at it a little differently – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 11

It was interesting to read this chapter because I was not the target audience.  I had to change the lens in which I saw and consumed the information.  Perhaps this is appropriate because when I shared this part of myself with my wife early on I’m sure she had to do the same.  This is … Continue reading Looking at it a little differently – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 11

Working through uncomfortable growth – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 10

Laying the foundation is essential for success in most of our lives.   Want to be good at the piano?  How often have you practiced your scales, learned to read music, and given the effort necessary for success?   Want to be promoted?  Are you laying the foundation of recognized (and unrecognized) effort to build into the … Continue reading Working through uncomfortable growth – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 10

Loving myself – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 8

Life is hard.  One of the ah-ha moments I’ve had as a parent is that my parents were in the same boat as I was.  The boat of unpreparedness and sometimes complete inability to be ready for a situation that life presents.  Life is something that we learn in the moment, and sometimes it is … Continue reading Loving myself – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 8

Emotions – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 7

We often struggle with our emotions (especially the men who are reading).  Even more interestingly, we struggle with the emotions of others as well.  On top of that fun fact we find that we also confuse emotions and feelings, or even the fact that they are different (a feeling is the acknowledgement of an emotion). … Continue reading Emotions – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 7
