My kids the other day literally begged me for cold baked beans on rice cakes. Every part of me winced and said no, you cant have that it’s so wrong. I need to warm the beans and you have to have toast I said over and over. They had other ideas, eventually I thought about and said ok gave it to them. In fact they got me thinking about the things we all do because they have to be done that way and that way only.
You know the things about yourself that don't feel good. We all have them those dark corners, when we make a mistake or mess up a situation feelings of shame, self loathing come up. Why did I do that, should have thought first, how did I end up here and so on. This human path can be painful at times, we don't always get it right or at least it feels like that. Choices for ourselves aren’t always made from pragmatic sensible places and even when they are there are so many other forces influencing our path, many of which we aren’t even aware of.
Listen up buttercup, are you treasuring yourself enough? Do you feel like a perky shiny buttercup or a wall flower? You know Christian Dior was known to have said flowers were the next most beautiful things god gave us after women. I have to agree I love them!
Stuff, the stuff that dreams are made of….striving to collect, create, own stuff. More stuff upon stuff until you don't even know what stuff you have. Stuff stuffed in corners, shelves, draws, boxes, cupboards basically everywhere, humming with the energy of stuff. Making your home nosey even when its quiet, keeping you busy tidying sorting managing it even when your not working and have nothing to do. Add 3 children to the mix of stuff and you have stuff everywhere, literally drowning in STUFF.
We all have different ideas about what luxury is and how free we feel to access this within in our lives. Often things can feel out of bounds to us for reasons little known to ourselves except for they don't feel right, voices like I can’t go there or do that, wear that, or experience this echo in our heads. Making us feel this Its just not what I do.When you think about it the world has so much variety with in it unbelievable amounts of beauty and luxury to experience and enjoy so why is it we limit our choice to; where we end up in life or what feels safe, what we know or have already experienced before and so on.
