This morning I woke up praying for my fairy godmother to come along and wave her magic wand. Instantly changing my circumstances. Bringing me clarity. Taking me out of the twilight zone of the unknown. But she didn’t come. And I knew she wouldn’t because I am my fairy godmother and only I can change my circumstances by the way I view them.
I am trying hard to walk the walk I keep writing about instead of just writing about it. You know practising what I am preaching or in my case writing. But it’s hard when I am constantly being tested to remain positive. It’s easy to be cynical. To view the glass as half empty. To project outside of myself then to look within.
By now I should be able to walk on water because of all I have been through. Instead of sapping my own energy because I am being so judgemental of myself. So I closed my eyes and asked for guidance to rebuild my strength and stop letting doubt side track me. Then a story I read to my son when he was a baby came into my consciousness. It was about an elephant who desperately wanted to fly. The elephant tried and tried and believed in himself and talked to himself but still he could not fly. He questioned the universe about why it was that he could not fly even though he truly believed he could. And the answer was nothing is impossible as long it is within the confines of your physical being. We can’t fly physically but we can fly figuratively. We can’t do everything and be everything to everyone else but we can to ourselves.
My quote for the day from Bill Cosby was “I don’t know the secret to success. But I know the secret to failure is trying to please everybody.”
And that’s it for me for now. Time to make breakfast. Wake my children up. Get dressed. Tell myself something wonderful is going to happen to me today. Drive my children to school. Go to work. Remind myself something wonderful is going to happen to me today. Set my intention for the day. Reflect on it. Project it. Live it. Do it.
No fairy godmother. Just me waving my magic wand and getting on with it. Because I know something wonderful is going to happen to me today.
