A Different Path


It's not a path that's new to me, it is the one I eventually return to when I've had enough. Enough of my dark night of the soul.

May -- a new month, the month of Mary, of mothers, of flowers, Beltaine, soft blooms, and new beginnings all staggered according to genus and species. Mine will be staggered according to mood, inspiration and whimsy. Just finished the book The Happiness Project, and I gotta say, I liked it. It got me thinking. About changing my attitude. Which can be slow going when past demons start licking like tiny flames at past hurts that still aren't resolved. There's a saying, sh!t or get off the pot. I've been in this spot before (the stuck spot), and I've turned it around. It really does work. Changing my attitude I mean. And it does seem to change my life -- open up more doors, more possibilities. I'm all for my woo woo therapies, and what have you, but sometimes I just need a good (and swift) kick in the arse.Sometimes tenderness and tolerance, time and so on are in order. But enough is enough. It's time to start my own happiness project. And honor divine inspiration when it hits me. And it does hit.

Always good to give yourself a little kick. The happiness project sounds like a good idea.
My motto is keep your head down and keep moving forward....

It always sounds so easy to just change one's attitude. I've found that I usually need some alone time and some music to make the adjustment. It does not always come easy but with those two things sometimes I can swing it.
