Don’t Settle!

Four weeks ago, I started a new daytime job, and whilst the people are very nice, and the salary always comes in handy, it’s not the position I applied for or the hours I wanted, yet – I accepted their offer when it was made, and for the moment, I’m remaining in the role, because……

Perhaps, it has something to teach me.

Although, within a week of commencing the position; I tore 3 ligaments in my left foot, an injury which is still hampering my life. This includes; no gym, and as it’s a sit-down role, I’m becoming stir crazy.  Aaaaagghhhh!!

Not, a full 2 weeks later, I contracted a horrendous cold, which I’m still suffering from, and unfortunately, my contracted hours do not allow for much else in my life, and I’ve temporarily given up many things I enjoy.

Not forgetting, the intensive training, which the role requires, ensuring I’m too tired when I get home, to even want; to pick up my laptop…..as you can imagine; my emails are taking on a life of their own.

(It also has, too many rules & regulations to suit me – I feel like I’ve lost my freedom).

As time’s been passing, I’ve come to the conclusion, that; I’m doing what’s expected, or; what’s considered socially acceptable, because it’s the right thing to do. And, in the process; my life is passing me by, whilst; I’m settling for something I don’t want.

Perhaps, this was the lesson, I needed to learn – My life, is exactly that; “My Life” and I shouldn’t; Settle!

So…….I’ve set my inner-self a time limit, and made a vow, and you’re all welcome to hold me to it.

By the end of September or, preferably; June; I will have moved on from this position, and not only found something better, but it’ll  also be more fitting for accomplishing my own life’s dream, and I’m hoping that those of you in similar situations, will do the same.

Find Your Dream, and Live It!

(PS: I haven’t forgotten you.  And, thank you to those, who haven’t forgotten me either).

Dont Settle

 

Is Spirit Trying To Tell Me Something? Or, Is The Law Of Attraction at Work?

This morning, much to my delight, I discovered a letter in my mailbox, which included two free double passes to see Goosebumps  at my local cinema, also included was a notification that I’d won a prize pack, consisting of flashing shoelaces, bouncing putty, and other such merchandise.

Now, as; in the last 12 month, I’ve also been lucky enough to win; a family pass to Perth Zoo  and to a Disney On Ice  spectacular, I’m not really certain; what the message from Spirit is.  Are they saying; grow-up, or re-discover the joy in life?

I’m veering towards; revive my ‘Joy’, and as in 2015, I was also, very kindly gifted with tickets to a Sam Smith  concert, that’s my story & my sticking to it……not saying, I don’t have the odd childish moment, but don’t we all?

2015 for me, was a difficult year, although, I did connect with some incredible people online, yourself included, but it was also a growth year, during which I learn a lot, and frequently spouted my affirmations – I phrased it that way, because; there were times my affirmations; became a little panicked, but hey, I survived!  Always; an important and worthy goal!

I have some specific mantras that I use on a regular basis, and I find they generally work within days. They run the gamut, from health to money issues, and I try to recite them when on the rowing machine at the gym – what else can you do, when you’re sat rowing towards a busy road, just outside a window…..sweeping meadows it’s not.

An old favourite, you might want to borrow is;

I attract prosperity, abundance, financial security, and unexpected money into my life each day.

But, back to the ‘Joy’ issue, when was the last time you felt such an emotion in your life? Or, has it been such a long time that you’re not really sure what brings you ‘Joy’ anymore?

I’m not talking happiness, or even contentment because we can feel either on a daily basis whether it be; happiness at work or contentment to be sat in front of the TV with a cuppa.

I mean real soul-deep joy. The type of joy engendered by the birth-of-a-child, or getting the all-clear from a; scary health issue, and dare I say it; money appearing just when you need it drastically.

You may not think that; these 3 examples should be grouped together, but real ‘Joy’ is subjective to each and every person, on earth.

To a thirsty child in Africa, dirty water, may bring joyful cries, to a homeless person, one night in a shelter, could touch their heart. And, to a rescued animal, first-cuddles from a loving human may be the greatest thing since Smackos (dog treats) were invented.

So, take 5 minutes today, review your life, and think about the last time you felt, heart-wrenching ‘Joy’, and I want you to revel in the sensations that appear with the memory, and hold on to them, so that you can bring them to mind, whenever you’re in a dark moment

Have You Found Your “Calling”?

As some of you may know I live very close to a lake, which has incredible grounds, where you’ll frequently find dog walkers, picnickers, and joggers. In fact, I spend a lot of time there myself, and was about to walk around the lake when; I had a ‘moment’ by that I mean, someone made a very thought-provoking comment to me.

I was crossing the road outside my home, shortly after feeding my little magpie family, when all of a sudden a huge black Labrador – on a leash – came charging at me, with its’ poor human (a very nice lady) being dragged along in his wake.

When, this creature reached me, he literally tried to crawl up my body and planted his front paws on my shoulders, a huge tongue lolling in front of my face.

His owner, whilst trying to apologise, advised, “He never does that to anyone. I’ve never seen him do it before”. Naturally, I explained that I have an affinity for all animals and that one of my brother-in-laws has even nicknamed me; The Dog Whisperer.

Her reply; “Perhaps, that’s your calling, and it looks like you’re also a bird-whisperer too”.
And, it made me step back and think; is that what I’m here for? I’ve worked with my spiritual abilities, and enjoy writing, but I also crave; something else. Is this it?

Do you know what ‘Your Calling’ is, or, have you already found it?

Follow Your ‘Own’ Star

“Follow Your Own Star”           

                    Dante Alighieri (1265 – 1321)

It was recently suggested to me rather vehemently, that being a writer wasn’t work, and couldn’t be considered a ‘good’ job, although, I know; the person expressing their opinion, would be one of the first people, to join the celebratory queue, should I attain fame, or; when I rake in stacks of money.

And, several years ago, some people weren’t too impressed when I began to walk an alternative spiritual path, although it was a different matter; when I was interviewed for a feature piece on psychics, by a well-known UK magazine.

I’ve even had one colleague – in the financial arena – nickname me ‘The Nutter’ because of my beliefs, I will admit, though, he always did it to my face, not behind-my-back, unlike some people, who were less; non-judgemental, and considered me lacking in little grey cells.

But, what a lot of these detractors don’t know is; I’ve also sat the UK Mensa tests and I even have the certificates to prove; my intelligence; ranks in the; well-above-average range..  I didn’t attain membership, but I am eligible to do a re-sit when I want – maybe I will, maybe I won’t, who knows?

I’ve also been a ‘good girl’ and trod the management path, whilst working 12 hour days, I’ve worked in various ‘orthodox’ industries, ranging from; retail to banking. At one stage I was even employed by the Australian Tax Office (how conventional is that?) but it didn’t make me a; better or happier person, what it did do; was made me realise……….I prefer to be slightly eccentric and off-the-wall.

I like to create something with my own hands, or by using my brain.

I really do have an innate curiosity, which means, I like to have adventures, sometimes into the unknown, and I definitely…..

Like to; follow my own star, not the one someone else dictated to me.

So the next time; you find yourself judging someone for their choices, or their; traditions, beliefs, sexuality, or; if you’re pooh-poohing someone’s dreams, or goals, remember…

Never judge a book by its cover, there could be more going on inside, than you know and, more importantly…..

Everyone, you included, has the Spirit-given right to; Follow Their Own Star!

Don’t Let Life Stop You!

I’d originally planned to do the ‘3-day Quote Challenge’ but for some reason, my life seems to be extra busy lately…..don’t ask me why, I’m not really accomplishing more that I normally do, but my time just seems to be flying by, and; I know I’ve been busy, I’m just not sure; at what! Therefore, I’ve decided to post three quotes that touch my heart.

I hope you like them too.
