thoughts… again

had to apologize the other day… for being an arrogant know it all… while thinking about the result it occurred to me that knowing yourself and apologizing when the not so nice bits manifest isn’t easy… but it is soul clearing and a clear lesson on watching and thinking about what you say to others… as well as really listening instead of picking only parts of the conversation to comment on…

on having a couple days off…

if you have ever worked in a personal service position, you know how hard it is to let go of the previous week. we react to the energies of others, not in a woo woo “I can see and feel your aura” sort of way but in a way that lets us know we are definitely all connected. don’t laugh or smirk or roll your eyes, think about it. haven’t you every been someplace and been uneasy for no apparent reason? met someone that you have taken an instant dislike to even before they opened their mouth? felt like you have known someone forever after meeting them for the first time? known a person to be happy, sad, angry or mean without even speaking with them? humans radiate energy same as plants, animals, rocks, all of nature. there is a reason we feel peaceful in one place and not in another, relaxed with one person and not the next. and we have a tendency to mirror the energy we are linked to. the challenge is to let go of it if it is negative or sad or angry and not react with the same. and that’s where a job that links you with so many people can be a challenge to you and those that love you. if we aren’t strong enough to “shake it off”, it will affect those we are close to. thus days off should be spent doing things and being with people that energize us, make us happy and at peace. you can’t help but absorb but you can help to not pass all the negative and sadness. your head, heart and soul, not to mention your blood pressure, are restored and you can face work again. me? I read, eat, drink loads of coffee, clean house so I can rearrange it (again! ) and generally just putter. great word that!  so now I am off to sew a new something, iron a few things (a zen thing I like to do, that and washing dishes!) and this afternoon work in the yard. not everything will get done but I am good with that, the peace and yummy happy feeling is really what counts after all!    ciao!

just the usual weirdness…

things that prompt these random posts are clients… and the shower… and eavesdropping… and my catmate… and the the books i read, which since i inherited approximately 2000 of them from a client has been a real challenge to organize… suffice to say, life…

so what’s the thought for the day? listening to someone stress out about their grandkids and how they don’t show any respect for their grandparents and what is wrong with the children theses days, why are they so rude, why do the never say please or thank you, and i want to ask where are the parents, your kids? the ones who are supposed to lead by example and teach your grandchildren appropriate behaviours…

what the heck am i talking about? it’s friday pip emma and my brain has suddenly shut down. time to go home and make my new clothes and have a couple me days…
