Until I Get A New Home You Can’t Come Over

New Home

Listen! I currently live in a 4 bedroom town home that needs some work.

It’s not a piece of crap but it definitely needs a little work.

This blog is an awesome metaphor(click this think for metaphorical writings from Living The Creative) for what allot of people believe regarding getting assistance from others.

What I mean by this, is that some people believe that a person has to be 100% perfect (or a newly constructed home) before they will receive help or assistance from that person.

I think this is not 100% accurate. This is just my opinion.

I don’t believe this is your opinion either.

A New Home for Professionals

The reason I say this is because people go to doctors all the time to help with various things such as smoking when the doctor smokes, weight-loss “gurus” who are overweight, psychiatrists who have problems themselves, and the list goes on and on.

This is not to come down on doctors, but just to prove my point that there are many homes that need to get it together so to speak, and definitely don’t live in a new home, symbolically speaking.

Don’t get me wrong! I don’t believe you should go to someone who is completely off the mark, but if a person has at least gone through what you have, and come out on the other side; Although the person may not be 100% perfect, they may be perfect for you to learn and understand what you need to know.

The home may not be a new home, but it’s definitely an appreciated shelter.

Change the Lids and They Still Fit

CHANGE YOUR MIND CHANGE YOUR LIFE

This morning I noticed that there were two hair care products sitting on the sink in my bathroom which I had used on my daughter’s hair the previous day.

What was remarkable about what I saw was that I, in a haste to have my daughter go to bed in a timely manner for school the next day, had reversed the lids to each hair care product but THE LIDS STILL FIT! CHANGE YOUR MIND, CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

As I assessed what I had done, I realized that a metaphor was emerging just from a consistent stare in wonderment, that I had reversed the lids to  the two of these much needed and appreciated hair care products!

What is the metaphor? You may be asking. PATIENCE!

I’m certainly going to tell you! 

First let us recognize the differences in these two hair care products and then their similarities.

Differences: The container of each product was a different color, the design and packaging were different, the consistency of the products themselves were different, and ultimately the “holding” strength was different.

Similarities: The VISIBLE similarities, were that they were both for the hair, both were meant to hold the hair in place, both smelled really good, and obviously the lid sizes were the same, and the lids were the same color.

A Change in Perspective

Although there were both similarities and differences comparatively, BOTH products ultimately provided the SAME RESULT…..TO HOLD THE HAIR IN PLACE!

Although our external packaging may look different, ultimately WE are more alike than different but WE are all certainly ONE so the Lid Still Fits!

Life Lessons from Scrooge

Scrooge Teaches Us To Take A Deeper Look Inside

I have always wanted to write about the character Scrooge from the story, A Christmas Carol, and the lessons he taught us regarding business and life; The fact that we affect our business dealings and relationships if we have not “grown” as an individual.

Kristen Lamb also utilizes the Scrooge character to teach valuable lessons. refer to an article entitled:What Ebenezer Scrooge Can Teach Us About Great Writing.

How can this be the case you may ask?

The answer is that there may be aspects of ourselves which may be causing us pain, sorrow, fear, anger, etc., that we are carrying with us every day that we wake up, and are not willing to take a deeper look inside.

Why is this important? Well, what has the potential to happen from day to day, week to week, month to month, or year to year, is that deep rooted emotions may lie dormant inside of us until something or someone reminds a particular emotion to wake them up!

The character of Scrooge carried allot of emotions outwardly that were indicators that he had other things going on, on the inside!

For Scrooge, he woke up each and every day, and wore his emotions in much the same way that someone would put on a coat before walking out the door.

Scrooge was a perfect example of someone who allowed so much time to go by without addressing what was bothering him, that he affected everyone he came in contact with, whether personally or in business.

Scrooge Looks Deeper

If you know the story of Scrooge, you realize that Scrooge was visited by three ghosts who would change the course of his life.

For the sake of this article, let’ s pretend that each ghost actually represented a part of Scrooge’s conscience.

DEEPER STILL…

Each aspect of Scrooge’s conscience had to come directly TO Scrooge because it came directly FROM Scrooge!

The ghost of Christmas Past: This part of Scrooge’s conscience appeared so that Scrooge could gain clarity about a series of events which he perceived to have impacted his life in the present.

The ghost of Christmas Present: This part of Scrooge’s conscience appeared, giving him the opportunity to appreciate the HERE and NOW. That Scrooge could truly learn to “Like life.”

I LIKE LIFE!

The ghost of Christmas Future: This part of Scrooge’s conscience appeared for Scrooge to realize that he, himself is the creator of his Future, and that whatever he perceives it to be, he has the opportunity to change it.

Change your mind, change your life!

If YOU look deeper, the character of Scrooge really does teach us many different life lessons.

A Poem Acts As Light

ILLUMINATION

I never imagined that my favorite poem at the time, illuminated a path that I would soon walk on.

The quote I am speaking of is called: Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson. Zen Pencils does an awesome pictoral representation of this poem @ http://zenpencils.com/comic/65-marianne-williamson-our-deepest-fear/

Everyday when I opened the cabinet over my desk at work, there it was. The poem that spoke to my heart most deeply at the time. The words starting out by saying: ” Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” I was hooked by the first phrase. These were the words that I had always wanted to say to myself, and accept of myself, but for some reason I was not there yet.

IT IS OUR LIGHT

“It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,handsome, talented and fabulous?” This phrase was next. Wow! I so identified with this powerful declaration. I am the light that Marianne was speaking of. The poem went on and on, day after day, speaking to the deepest parts of me.

I realized that in the absence of speaking my thoughts out loud, I was communicating with this poem. Reading each phrase day by day. Questioning the validity of the words of the poem within myself, and as time went on, I was growing into an understanding of the words and how they applied to the ME that was unfolding.

IN PLAIN VIEW

If you have a favorite quote or poem, place it in plain view where you can see the words every day. The fact that the words to this poem were “working with me” so to speak, was not conscious to me at the time. So I am suggesting that the power of the mind to bring something to consciousness was great in this regard.

I look back at this poem now and marvel! Try it and experience the power and magic of working with YOURSELF!

How OLD Are You?

Do you happen to be telling yourself how OLD you are? “I feel this way because I’m OLD. This happened because I’m OLD. I can’t wear certain clothes because I’m OLD. I can’t wear my hair long because I’m OLD,” etc., etc. Did you know that as you tell yourself these words, your body yields to your will. That’s right! Your WILL BE DONE. The cells of your body are their own community, communicating the energy and vibration of your will. CHANGE YOUR MIND, CHANGE YOUR LIFE, and out of your same two eyes, you will see things differently. I refuse to contract with OLD. Me and OLD are not friends! I don’t have a contractual AGREEMENT with OLD! I can’t (necessarily) control everything, but I can pay ATTENTION to my thoughts and how I feel about what I’m thinking and as a result, I don’t LOOK or FEEL old! Speak love, long life, prosperity and health to YOURSELF, and over time I guarantee a change in your heart and mind.

Success

What is your definition of success?

Allot of people who have been in the workforce for a long time may have forgotten to take the time to ask themselves this question. Just because you have worked at a particular job for a long time does not mean that you cannot make a change if so desired. Maybe you feel like you’re stuck in a “rut” in your life and can’t get out. It’s time to take another look at your life picture but where do I begin? I say, start with the easy part.

Take a look around you. Do you see and feel what you want to see and feel. Are your surroundings just as you would like for them to be. Are you happy when you wake up or do you get up begrudgingly? If any of these questions have caused you to stop and think…GOOD! Why should you continue feeling the same way as yesterday, and the yesterday before that? Why continue to go the same places, doing the same things? One of the best pieces of information I have heard is to WRITE IT DOWN! …Your thoughts, your feelings, on where you want to go, what you want to be doing, etc. Provide as much of the details that YOU WANT TO KNOW and hear from YOURSELF.

Once you have accurately pinpointed what you have always wanted to express, and you have does this WITHOUT JUDGEMENT of whether you will be able to accomplish what you’ve written, you are on your way!

Some of why we are unable to move forward, or make changes in our lives, is because we have not clearly defined what we want. Once you have clearly defined what you want, YOU are better able to hear and see the next steps to take. The definition of success is different for everyone. What is YOUR definition of success? Some of mine?…To have my own company(check). To have the freedom to say what I will and won’t do regarding my business(check). To not have to worry about a budget sometimes(working on it), etc.

Let’s talk.
