Do You Ever Feel Like You’re A Cat Toy?

(Note from Michelle – keep reading – CK has a bonus video at the end of this post, but don’t tell her I told you it is suppose to be a surprise!)

I’ve got lots to do!

My daughter turned eleven and so did her attitude. I organized a family conference call to talk about the needs of my 85 year old (self-proclaimed stubborn old ass) of a grandmother.  I’ve decided to move out of my current living situation with my lover. The holiday season has just begun (I noticed it coming on with Christmas decorations going up before Octobers’ were even removed). My 18-year-old son is in jail.  And I have a business to run!

I could be famous if I would just succumb to the chaos.

I wonder if this is how Rip Van Winkle got his start.  Sounds like an easy way out.  Sleep…  Reminds me of depression and I guess no one would blame me.  I have to admit that sometimes I feel like running through the dark halls of a high school screaming unintelligible words of terror.  In walks my blessings.

  • My daughter tells me it’s important to breathe at times like this.  Did I tell you she just turned 11?
  • The communication between my depression era cheap-skate grandmother just deepened to a level I never thought possible.
  • My lover and I share a moment of deep appreciation for what we have learned from each other (he brought me chocolate).
  • I decide to change some rules around allowance for my seemingly ungrateful daughter and she writes a list of what she’s grateful for.
  • I pack 3 boxes of craft items and feel excited to use them in my new home.
  • I haven’t heard from my son, but I’m reminded that he turned himself in so he could take advantage of some opportunities for his life that he wouldn’t have otherwise.  I
  • get to share my authentic self through my business and it’s so much fun working with Michelle.

I realize that I’m not depressed.  I’m fully engaged in my life.

Life makes it easy to feel like a cat toy.

With all the chaos around me, it’s easy to feel like life is happening to me.  Without conscious awareness it would be easy to feel like I’m not living my life purpose.  There are hundreds of choices to make everyday from what to wear (which changes moment-by-moment in Colorado) who to blame (hopefully no one) and how to interpret the events and circumstances in daily life (they all support my success).

How can we keep it all in perspective?

When you feel overwhelmed it is important to be able to maintain an empowering perspective that keeps you on track and moves you toward your vision for your life.    I have a few ideas to share with you.  Once you’ve read them, share yours with me as well.

  • Remember that this moment is just that!  A moment in time.  The way you perceive this moment gives you an experience.
  • The way you perceive the events in your life will either empower you or leave you feeling deprived.  You always have more than one way to look at your circumstances; choose an empowering perspective.
  • Affirm and confirm that the Universe supports the full expression of your purpose, and stop fighting yourself.  (In other words, go with the flow!)

Life is all around you.  You have hundreds of choices to make everyday.  I know this may seem simplistic to you.  But trust me when I say it’s true.  You are supported–even when it doesn’t feel like it.  Even when you are in the midst of chaos.

  • Even when you children….well, you know…
  • Even when your grandmother’s spine is crushing itself beneath her weight and she thinks you are trying to take advantage of her by offering to take care of her for the rest of her life.
  • Even when your heart is breaking because you don’t know what tomorrow will look like; you only know it will be different than what it is.
  • Even when the bustle around you increases when you need to settle down.
  • Even when your business is in full speed ahead and is begging for your attention. (Write a post CK!)

With all confidence I affirm that I am on the right track; I am in the flow of my life and allowing for the Divine to show me my way (sometimes moment by moment).  I am completely and totally supported in my hearts desires.  The more I get out of my own way, accept my life as it is, and surrender to the flow, the easier it is for me to see I am living my purpose in every area of my life.
