The last two weeks have been so busy, I’ve actually considered moving to doing Vlogs instead of writing, or at least doing it interchangeably because, I’ve had zero time to write, let alone come up with beautiful words. In fact, inside this little space where I’ve found time to write a paragraph, I have about 18 minutes before I have to be somewhere again. My schedule has been non-stop. And I love it – for now. But this post isn’t going to be poetic.
Our latest rehab project finally came to completion…and the funny thing about finally finishing a full gut rehab is, that no matter how difficult or easy the project was – the end is always a pretty good cluster fuck. It’s final walk throughs to point out what was missed. And there are, notoriously quite a few things that still need attention. I always forget how busy that time is just before listing. The last couple weeks I’ve been on my own to take care of everything – which is already time consuming. But add mom-ing in there and it becomes a little more complicated. My girl woke up at 3 o’clock one morning throwing up. I had an appointment at the new project at 9:00 that I couldn’t reschedule. So, she had to come along. She made herself a nice comfy spot in the backseat with pillows, blankets and of course her barf bowl and rolled right along with me.
This will be quick and swift, as my lessons from the universe were for me these last couple weeks. I am all up in my masculine energy recently. So, I’m just gonna go ahead and keep with it and do this list style. My feminine flow will return, but for now this is what I’m working with – and I’m rollin with it.
As I’m starting this journey of what I want to do/be/speak/become by the time I turn 40 one of the major things I’m learning right now is – I can do more than I think I can.
I don’t for a second believe I’m getting this message straight out the gate for no reason. This is the result of intention plus action. The sweet spot of manifesting. And it goes like this:
- Show up fully to your life and watch things change.
- I set an intention. I made a list. And ways to manifest what’s on my list started pouring in. I wasn’t ready for what was coming. But I rolled with it. And things got done.
- Women are driven, bad ass bitches who can do anything – WITH a kid in tow.
- That’s what we do. We persevere. We don’t complain – there’s no time for that. We just keep going, finding a way to make things happen. It’s pretty much one of our superpowers as driven women and mothers. We keep going – and we’re bringing our kids along with us. And there’s no shame in that game.
- One day my sick daughter is with me while I meet with the electrician and the next day my littlest is by my side as we have the septic system certified and pumped out. (You know, lots of little boys are more that happy to get to peer down a giant hole that is literally filled to the top with shit. Like, they don’t even find it gross. They’re just fascinated.)
- The more shit I kick out of my life, the more of myself I find along the way.
- I’ve kicked out alcohol – and I’m fresh and clear minded basically 100% of the time.
- I’ve kicked out the majority of the meat – and my once chronic heartburn is non-existent.
- I’ve kicked out the extra shit that just lurks around my house as I get ready to sell it – and with each thing I toss out, sell or give away – a little piece of my soul returns home. This has changed the way I move through the world.
- Case in point – have you ever been to Hobby Lobby? It’s a home decor dream center. I went in there to get glue for my kid and after the initial whoosh of “OMG, I want it all”…I very quickly (within 3-5 minutes) transitioned to, ok…let’s get what we came for, I’m good. No ridiculous amounts of money spent. No new trash to find a place for. And walking away because I wanted to was like freedom on a whole new level. Keep your shit Hobby Lobby. Not only do I not need it. I don’t want it. Sweet baby jesus, that feels good!
- I can do more than I think I can.
- Just 2 weeks into this journey and I’m already learning a beautiful lesson – I can do more than I think I can when I become willing to learn or try things that I either believed I couldn’t do or that I thought didn’t want to do.
I came across this quote this week:
“It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows.” – Epictetus
And I’d like to add that it’s impossible to learn what you think you don’t want to know. I was pretty sure that all the things, the physical ‘handyman’ fixes I did at my own house this week, were all things I didn’t even want to know how to do. But when I decided to go ahead and figure my way through everything that needed to be done – I realized that I can do waaay more than I think I can. And while not intrinsically deep, it just feels really good.
There’s always something to be said for resistance and what you find on the other side. It’s usually something that feels like freedom.
