and then, after the then …

you realise that the Universe is nudging you – the same thoughts and feelings keep coming up and when two people made the exact same comment to me echoing what I’ve been feeling nudged to do, it reinforced the feeling I’ve had, that has slowly been growing stronger.  I’ve always believed that that is confirmation from the Universe that you’re on the right path.

I tend to hesitate to take action because I want to see the entire staircase, not just the first step – but this time, I’m putting my fear of the unknown and not being in ‘control’ aside and stepping up onto the first step.  I’m practising trusting the prompting.

As I started this morning I mentioned an item I wanted to sell to my sister because I felt it right to give her first choice as its something that she loves and she grabbed it without hesitation.  Yes, I’m on a roll.  So as I’ve walked around seeing things I want to let go of, I’ve given her first choice.  Its things that I know she loves.  I believe that this is the right thing.  I know many won’t understand, question me, think I’ve lost it, but I haven’t.  Its simply time to travel light in the world – destination unknown.

And then …

I so don’t get how self-centered people are.  Truly and honestly!  It makes me incredibly sad, a bit angry too, but mostly just sad.  And when they demand and whine, I start to act like a cat backed into a corner.  A kitty in a corner is always a dangerous animal, they don’t care much about how others view their actions, they simply hiss and put out their claws and do whatever they can to get out of that corner.  I’m feeling cornered – I don’t like it.

Sad that people are so wrapped up in themselves, that they fail to see where someone else is emotionally and can’t take themselves out of their own heads to imagine how someone is dealing with their own reality.

I saw this little video linked below this weekend on Facebook and I hope that the people in my world will try and understand where I am.

Back off, stop demanding my attention, stop making me feel guilty for not being and doing what you need – right now, I’m doing for me, dealing with my own shit.

They may not be avoiding you

UNFAIR ADVANTAGE!

As I was applying my foundation this morning, looking in the mirror, I wondered if women have an unfair advantage over men.  Since we have all these magic potions we apply to our face, contouring, eyeliner, blush, eyelash curlers, mascara and on and on the list goes, it makes for a rather unfair advantage.

Agree or disagree?

I’m curious to hear what others think.

Thankful Thursday on ‘Friyay’

Shine bright like a diamond

… Rihanna

I am getting started for the day and just been feeling incredibly grateful the last few days.

I am amazed and grateful at the way in which the Universe brings those who you need into your life.

I’m thankful for the usual, my sisters, my children, my friends, my ex husband, but thankful that in weird and wonderful roundabout ways, people are being drawn into my world and helping me grow.

I posted this status on Facebook two days back …

I’ve failed more times than I’ve succeeded … Been beaten more times than I’ve won … Been left by those I loved the most … But each time irrespective of the challenges I’ve stood back up, fought harder and proved myself to the universe. Thanks mom for your words “pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back on the track”. I’ve got this!

I’m so grateful for the ‘fighting’ spirit (I think its more a spirit of survival, but we commonly refer to it as a fighting spirit – I’m just thinking it may be time to learn to rephrase that) I was born with.  I’m even more grateful that I wanted to be a better person, less angry, less woeful, less self centred, less internal, less fussy, less judgemental, less selfish, less of all the ugly, less worried about what others are thinking about me, less concerned if they are judging me, and less worried about whether or not they like me and more concerned with being real, true, approachable, giving, loving, caring.

The most awesome part of all the ‘lessing’, is that when you let go of most of those nasty traits, you start to shine.  People start calling you beautiful and gorgeous, and strangers smile at you at greet you randomly.  You find people coming to you for encouragement, friendship, sharing.  It’s a beautiful thing!  Its magical!  Its an awesome way to live and love.

So today, to the wonderful amazing people in my life, I love you for accepting me, even when I was more of the ugly and less of the pretty.  For trusting me with your secrets, sharing your hopes and dreams, success and failures and seeing something in me that I never fully accepted or saw in myself.

You and me, we’re beautiful, we’re like diamonds in the sky!

What you forgotten to be grateful for?
Are you working at being more beautiful and letting go of the ugly traits (we all have them, whether we acknowledge them or not)?

Accept the consequences

(POST IN PROCESS)

Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.

-Eckhart Tolle

How I cower at times in fear.  Of the sheer magnitude of the reality of what life could be.  But why are we afraid of the dream – when its in our hearts and we’ve hankered after it for longer than we ourselves can remember.

Today I went for an ‘interview’ and as I got on the highway, the next offramp is the one I’d use to go to visit a friend.  I haven’t seen her in a while, so I picked up the phone and while connecting with her started to take the offramp – if she wasn’t home it was easy enough to get back on the highway – happiness – she was home so I went by for a visit.

We had an awesome catch up and during our chat about where we are, what’s happening and ‘all that jazz’, she looked at me when I said I’d been interviewing and the other things and said ‘but Wends, its your jam – why are you scared?’

I can’t bullshit her, she knows me too well, she sees into my soul.  So, this evening I will yet again get back to the scheduling, the planning, the scheming and allowing myself.

Thankful Thursday

It’s another Thursday and I realise that I’ve not done a Thankful Thursday post in ages, and today I’m feeling all kinds of thankful.

I’m thankful that I was born with a positive attitude.

I’m thankful for coffee beans, coffee is the best thing to share your sorrows, joys and hope over with a good friend.

I’m thankful for my children, because they are such awesome souls and believe in me.

I’m thankful for my friends, who laugh with me, indulge my craziness, love my weirdness and believe in me.

I’m thankful for my health and strong body, its carried my babies, taken me to amazing places and never let me down.

I’m thankful for birds that chirp in the trees, flowers that bloom, the trees that drop their leaves.

I’m thankful that I’m a sensitive and intuitive soul and able to connect with other like souls.

I’m thankful for the internet, that allows us to connect with other and endless information available freely.

I’m thankful for the material things in my world, my car that gets me to places, my phone that allows me to constantly connect with my loved ones and friends and allows me to share positivity with others when they are in need.

I’m thankful for the crazy fur babies in my world, that bring love and joy – even thought I’m convinced they’d eat me given half chance when I’m late with their dinner.

Looking back on my almost 50 years on this planet, there is so much to be thankful for, from small moments to big life altering moments.

This life is short, get out and live it and be thankful.  There truly is always something to be thankful and grateful for, no matter how small it may seem.
