Ever feel like you have your life…somewhat… buttoned up, at least with a plan and a direction in play…with a semblance of control?
Yep – that was me a few weeks back. Onward and upward….tally ho! There was no stopping me…I was a freight train in motion.
Then the news dropped…again…and again…and again….
I will spare you the gory ‘woah is me’ details, but suffice it to say, there were 3 earth shattering changes that completely destabilized me….for a hot second anyhow. As in, take my life and throw it into a snow globe and lets see what she comes up with. Son…gone. Hello empty nesters! Home…gone. Father…disowned me again, or rather, his alcohol did. Whatevs – the results are the same. Yaaay…what else? Bring it!
So, after the dust settles, I’m sitting here thinking, and reeling and going, what the heck? Really? And then it hits me. Growth = struggle. Resistance = success. And then dear old Bruce Lee pops into my head saying…. “In the middle of chaos lies opportunity…”
No matter how hard we try to focus and grow and help and love…there will always be the sad scared souls that would rather judge from their throne of fear and piss on you. And ya know what? That’s when you buck up and tell them to piss off right back. Because love takes far more courage than fear…and kindness is far more honorable and freeing than holding onto negativity. While we’re at it, fear can take a flying leap as well.
So…we’re gonna start churning some lemonade and this is going to be the best dang lemonade we have ever tasted. As in, step aside Paula Deen, because mama’s gonna blow your socks off. So, with this post, I release the people I love, from the obligations they feel toward me. I release the landlord from hades to the legal system. I release my pops to his booz. I release my son to grow and love and own his future, and love his choices. And I will always be there to love on them within healthy boundaries. I resign everyone in my life to love, and fullness, and happiness, and hope, and in every way that I can, encourage them to feel strong, empowered and HAPPY!!!
So….in the end…what’s the the snow globe looking like??
Well…the details continue to unfold….however, my business plan is going through a wee change….for the better. Wahoo!! We are moving south of the border (more on that later) – wahoo!! I am soon to be a fur mama – been waiting SOOOO very long for this…AND…we will get to love on my most deserving abuelita. Wahoo!! I can’t wait to see the coming adventures and how they unfold. There will no doubt be lots of dust, boiler room temps for this spoiled beach girl, silly misunderstandings, and of course, lots of giggles. Own it baby!
