Playing catch up...

is difficult. Things pile up and one feels the need to accomplish twice as much as normal because of the pile up. I think that's how I've been feeling lately. Laundry, cleaning, creating are all piling up.

I've been reading the book Make Your Creative Dreams Real by Sark. I am a fan of her books. Mostly because they are anything but ordinary. Last night I read this:

Life is a difficult assignment. We are fragile creatures, expected to function at high rates of speed, and asked to accomplish great and small things each day. These daily activities take enormous amounts of energy. Most things are out of our control. We are surrounded by danger, frustration, grief and insanity as well as love, hope, ecstasy, and wonder. Being fully human is an exercise in humility, suffering, grace, and great humor. Things and people all around us die, get broken , or are lost. There is no safety or guarantees.

Such an overwhelming thought. And at the same time can make one realize the adventure that life can be. We are presented daily with opportunities to CREATE OUR OWN HAPPINESS! (Right Mag!?)

Today Owen and I went to check out the new Trader Joe's that opened in Maple Grove last week. I bought some natural ingredient, bake at home, chocolate chip cookies. So I'm going to go and create some happiness for myself!

Boy, isn't life just so overwhelming? I feel just like you. I can never catch up.
I just love that paragraph, it is very true. Something to really think about that is for sure.
Yummmmmmm... some natural choc. chip cookies sound really good to me. (did I mention that I'm on a diet, lol). How does that song go??? Don't Worry, Be Happy! I really should try that.

We could never catch up but I'm in denial and try my hardest anyway. When the chores are done, I always think it's time to do something I've been putting off for ages like rearranging the closet or purging and cleaning the garage...it just never ends. But enough about chores..those choc chip cookies sound yummy.
Eat a cookie, you deserve it : )

I just wanted to remind you, that while you are creating your own happiness, there are sometimes bumps in the road (I should know!) And as delightful as those cookies probably are (and why wouldn't they be?!) your bumps may just end up on your bum!! Creator, Beware!!!

You know I'm sending this message out of love............
