The more I am learning about relationships that are Taken In Hand, That Thing We Do, or Domestic Discipline, the more gratitude I feel.  I am so grateful that there is a network of blogs, websites and information available to me.  It's nice to know that I am not the only person out there that has the need for more structure and discipline in my life. 

As I am learning and growing, it's nice to be able to see other people who are going through similar situations, who are living, learning and growing too.  Submissives who are admitting their own needs, who are watching their relationships with their dominant partners blossom and flourish even as they experience ups and downs, mistakes and all of the curves that life can throw at us.  I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the people who choose to share their experience with others. 

Their stories reassure me that there are many of us who love this lifestyle, who find it normal and comfortable even as society pushes us to be something we're not.  While we do not all have the same relationship, or need the same level of discipline, we all have the need to have a strong person in our lives, a person that we can rely on to draw boundaries, to hold us accountable, to make us feel safe.  This safety allows us to lower our defenses, allows us to feel free to be who we are.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for keeping the blogs going, for sharing your experiences, for sharing your lives.  Your blogs and sites inspire me, reassure me and remind me that I am not the only person who needs discipline to flourish.


  1. It's true there are many helpful sites and wonderful people who share their DD lives with everyone. Glad to see you're one of those people willing to share, learn and help others learn too.

  2. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us! (If you are reading this you can see MrBBSpanker at: I do hope that is someone should come upon my blog they will find, as I did, reassurance in the fact that they are not alone with their need for more structure and discipline (and a bit of spanking!) in their relationship...


I would love to hear from you!
