When its Friday, have a party?

My week has been an exhausting roller coaster of work, putting out fires and oh yes feeling stuck in the mud up to my eye balls. It is Friday so why not have a party? I am by nature a pretty upbeat type of person and look at life through optimistic eyes (usually). This week as of this very morning I said enough! I mean universe, Divine Source, God, Higher Consciousness or whatever you want to call the power in charge I need a break. A very big time out and I need to do it now. I am sure there are a few of you out there feeling the same way.

You turn on the TV and get blasted with the fiscal cliff (oh my) or some other insane news statement so off goes the TV. And I do have a huge problem with the Government in the USA. I feel every one who acts on the interest of politics and not the greater good are evil or insane. You know the saying by Einstein if you expect a different outcome … is insanity. It is the Christmastime season and other holiday celebrations now the attack is on Christmas and Christmas Trees (which is nuts). The Christmas tree is actually a pagan religion symbol the Christians stole. I am not a Christian nor do I practice any other religions. I am a spiritual being who embraces all the words and teachings of the Creator. Christmas is the season of forgiveness, possibilities and love. Truths and lies are so blurred and the human insanity is on an upswing that you have to wonder if it is all a big fat lie. The human race is running a muck maybe a conspiracy so huge is at the base of all the lies? But people are being manipulated led like sheep to the slaughter and it is time to shake ourselves out of it and question why?

Something keeps nagging at me, after getting the mail and opening a letter, I saw a light shine up at me. It was a letter from a woman who had received a box for her birthday from her family. I had personalized the box but it was a gift from her family, not me. She thanked me for making this box for her and the kindness in her words touched my very being. I then noticed an email from another customer I had just sent her a box in memory of her daughter and again the heartfelt words shone back from my screen.  All the worries of fiscal cliffs and Christmas being wiped off the celebration calendar meant very little. My work meant something to someone else. When our actions are formed with gratitude and kindness mixed with hard work and following the heart’s passion does anything else matter?

The best thing is when you look through the veil of lies and deceit of the ego mind, the fiscal cliff and Christmas and everything else what is left. A life plan that has always been there and that is to do no harm, ever. No unkind words, no lies to better your own agendas, no attacks on a religion because you have none or it is different, no thought that undermine another person validation is living your purposeful life.  Yes you still may walk through the mud up to your eyeballs but you will do it because you chose to not because you are a victim.

Bourbon Manhattan Cocktail
Tonight is party time it is Friday and I am celebrating my new found attitude with a favorite cocktail, a Manhattan. I am shaking off the dust of ego heavy minded thinking and listening to my lovely self for that is all the truth I need, for this night. Have a party tonight and discover a fabulous truth about your self, your mind is the illusion, not your life.
