Here I am, sitting in a Les Schwab tire center in Albany, OR replacing bad tires and feeling frustrated for tons of reasons that may be obvious and others I won't bother you with when I remembered this video I made in November at the airport when I was on my way to SLC for a retreat. It totally fits with struggles that I know other work at home moms wrestle with and also coincides with this post from Sparkplugging's WAHM 2.0 Here's the thing...this has been a HARD year...I know not just for me and I have to keep reminding myself to STOP being so hard on myself! I mean seriously here's what Kelly McCausey said and I have to get it to stick in my brain so I cut myself some slack...
"Add any extra stress or special circumstances and the pressure to make the right choice about your time and attention becomes overwhelming."
So...in 2009 (actually starting NOW) I'm going to not just listen, but REALLY HEAR what the Universe is telling me and what my intuition is telling me...which by the way coincides with the Universe. I'll leave you with my most recent message from The Universe, which if you aren't already signed up for these, you should be. It never hurts to get messages a couple times a week that tell you YOU ROCK (which, btw, you should already know). Here's my message for Tuesday:
Ellen, it's easy. Your thoughts become things. Don't fight it. Don't think there's anything else. Don't entertain the false premises of fate, luck, or a God who judges, withholds, or decides. You decide. You manifest. You rule. This is why you are here. This is what you came to discover. You were born to experience your absolute dominion over every flimsy, malleable illusion of time and space; to have, do, and be anything.
Truthfully, it couldn't be any easier. All you have to do is think of what you want and refuse to deviate from that thought. This will, invariably, set you into motion, stir up the magic, and unleash the full force, power, and majesty of a Universe conspiring on your behalf.
It's worth everything you've got, Ellen. Be strong, be vigilant, take action, and the Kingdom of Heaven shall appear at your very feet.
I've got your back,
