I haven't felt like blogging lately.  I've been to caught up with things in life that I would rather not have to deal with.  Nothing major or earth shattering, just lots of little stuff all combined together to get the best of me.  

Today, however, is a new day and it's a beautiful day in the country.  Cool, gorgeous, sunny, with a deep blue sky.  So I sat outside staring up, trying to figure it all out.

I can't of course, I'm just not that good, but really, I don't think anyone can figure it all out.  I'm not sure that we are even meant to!  

Yesterday I vented (ranted/raged really) to a friend.  It didn't help, in fact I'm not sure but what it didn't make it worse.  Venting seems to give validation to a problem rather that come up with solutions for fixing them.  My helpful friend suggested I try to just 'live in the moment'.  'Live in the moment'?  What the heck does that mean!?!?!?   I thought I was!

The problem, I think, is that ALL those 'moments', add up.  Moments become one huge ball of wax, either good or bad depending on how you choose to look at it.  So I think my friend was trying to tell me to take each tiny moment and look at it as good and then when all those moments become that HUGE ball of wax, it will be a good one!  Hmmmm......does that make sense??

I don't know.  It's giving me a headache.  I think I'll try and forget about it and enjoy this kitty sitting on my lap wanting to play with my toes!

Hey....maybe that's 'living in the moment'!

What do you think?  


  1. Well, you have a beautiful day and a friendly cat on your lap so it can't be all that bad.

  2. really doesn't get much better than that does it!

  3. Yeah, I'd say that's living in the moment. You know when you think about it, moments are all we really have...but we never think of seizing the moment...we all put it in a big ball of wax and sometimes it just melts. Maybe we aren't meant to figure out stuff. Maybe we should just do like they did "back in the day". You know they usually married so they could have a life partner to carry on life's work..they didn't look for "soul mates" and besides they were too busy working for the family to keep everything going. Maybe that's how we should think...or maybe we shouldn't think too much at all. I'm an overthinker...but people have said that I'm thinking about the non-pertinent things..I'm stuck on what to write for my blog this week...maybe I'll expand on this gave me food for thought. Thanks. Enjoy that kitty!

  4. I hope you DO expand on the subject Kim!!! I am interested in hearing what others think about it.

  5. Yes, kitty clawing your leg is definitely "in the moment" :) I too sometimes get wrapped up trying to figure it all out - and it does give one a headache. That's when I sit myself down and come up with at least 1 thing that was good/great about the day, however small it may be. And, I don't know why but, taking a drive in the car seems to clear out my head too.

    Good luck and take it easy this weekend. Cheers~

  6. Conny...good for you for thinking positively!! When I am having a bad 'ball of wax', I really have a hard time finding even one good thing to think of. But that's the point I think, you have to work at being positive and make being positive a habit that sticks with you every single day. Think I will sit with the kitties again this weekend! Have a great one!!!


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
