|Living in full colour

What is your favourite colour? When you think of this colour, what do you feel? I don’t mean on the surface but what deep emotions does this colour stir in your soul?

My children must have asked me what my favourite colour is a million times a million or more times. Depending on the day my answer sometimes changes, or my go to answer is sometimes all the colours of the rainbow.

Today I am feeling pink! A new shade of pink, bright, vivid, alive!

I feel new today. Is because of a good nights rest, my new piece of art I purchased and finally got to bring home and hang up last night, is it the warmer weather, although still grey?

Maybe it’s the way my bedroom is coming together, or the “stuff” I got rid of yesterday that is no longer bogging my spirit down.

Maybe it is my resolve to declutter my household, of stuff, of habits, of lies, of frustration, of darkness!

There is still so much to do, because rose colour glasses are not working for me anymore. Truth needs to be the very air I breathe.

For a moment I felt pink, bright, vivid, alive pink!

What are the hard truths I need to face to be genuine pink again?

Breathe In Peace, Breathe Out Frustration, Clutter Out,Peace In

A dear friend of mine gave me a couple of shelving units because she was moving and had no where to use them. Unfortunately because of appointments and such they spent a few days cluttering up the middle of my kitchen. Creating mobility havoc in our home, and a very miserable husband.

With determination I worked out where the final resting place should be for these blessings, and set about “spring cleaning” the areas that I wanted them in.

I could not believe how perfectly they fit, like the hand of God had made the space. You have to understand I am slightly spatially challenged from time to time.

It was a long day getting things organized. I was able to unpack 5 boxes that had been cluttering up my home, and get my prized cookbooks out on a display. My cleaning and paper products now have a home that doesn’t tumble out into my pathway, and my daughter’s cat’s litter box is no longer in the main flow of traffic.

My husband even complemented how it had all worked out with a “that is pretty good, better than I expected”. That was a huge reward for me.

One piece of my life puzzle moving closer into alignment. One deep breath of peace.

Have you paused and taken a moment to celebrate your life victories you accomplished yesterday?

What is your goal today?

Today is self care Thursday! I declared it to be just now lol. I am extremely excited to go and have a massage and adjustment. Until last week I had no idea that I could feel this much better.

Then art expression with a couple of my children this evening. The anticipation is dancing delightfully in my mind.

Think of some delight you can pamper yourself with today!

BREAKING POINT

WHAT CAN I FIX IN TEN MINUTES?

Last night I was sitting having supper with my beautiful daughter, and I was curiously watching someone work with “cards”. After my daughter told me to stop staring, which I don’t believe I was staring, I was curiously watching, we continued chatting about this and that. I hesitated for a while, weighing in my mind whether I should mention something to her or not, (a very large faith dilemma for me), then I told her that someone had randomly offered to “tell my fortune”. I told her about how I was told that there was auras or signs on me. side note : I believe that God does provide signs and auras for lack of a better word, I just believe that we have to be careful in who and what we listen to.

Anyway the real point of this story is…my daughter kind of laughed, and said to me, “Mom, I don’t know about signs, but they probably want to help you, because you look like a wreck!”

SMACK!!!

She could not have chosen, stronger words. Don’t get me wrong, I do not believe there was any malice intended at all. She was just being fully and completely unfiltered and honest.

Now here is my confession….I TRY DESPERATELY TO APPEAR PUT TOGETHER, I LOVE HARD, AND GET HURT OFTEN, I SUPPRESS INSTEAD OF DIRECTLY DEALING, MY LIFE IS CLUTTERED EXTERNALLY AS WELL AS IN MY MIND AND SOUL, I AVOID CONFLICT TO THE POINT OF SO MUCH PENT UP FRUSTRATION THAT I OCCASIONALLY EXPLODE AND NOT USUALLY AT THE REAL PROBLEM BECAUSE IT WILL CAUSE CONFLICT WHICH I AVOID, MY BODY IS REBELLING AT THE WEIGHT OF WHAT I CARRY AND IF I DON’T CLEAN HOUSE I WILL PROBABLY DIE PREMATURELY!

So there you go the truth about me.

Today I choose to take Dr. Peterson’s advice, I am going to take a look at my insanely messy surroundings and in ten minute pieces I am going to begin to put it right. I am also going to water my body, that is extremely parched, from being too “busy” to keep hydrated the last few days.

How about you, what are you going to clean up today?
