Baby

Babies.

They cry a lot.

Most of the time they cry because they are hungry, wet, lonely, in pain or just want your attention.

Then there are times when they cannot be soothed.

No matter what. They just cry.

When you grow up, you are expected to stop doing that.

When you grow up, you are expected to be able to able to explain your every mood and emotional reaction.

Why are you angry?

Why are you sad?

Why did you react this way or that way?

Then there are times when we just fucking react and perhaps don’t have an explanation.

Tonight I tried to explain/ analyze/ figure out my abruptly violent emotional reaction to a joke and I failed miserably.

I am sitting here wondering why and whether or not some psycho analysis would even yield an answer.

Perhaps I was simply being a baby and having an unsoothable moment where I just want to have all the emotions in the world and have no explanation for it. 

Or I could file it under hormones. A perfectly logical explanation.

Only the courageous … stand out.

Drew this back in 2012.
Tomorrow is the Super Moon Full Eclipse, and astrologists all say it is a time for change, for being assertive and for saying what you have been meaning to say.

Astrology might all be self fulfilling prophecies, but then there is no harm in being courageous with yourself.

Stand up. Be courageous. Be outstanding. Stand out.

Stealth Mode

Margaret Thatcher once said (apparently), “Power is like being a lady, if you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

So.

Let’s go stealth mode.

Let’s be secretly awesome, incredible and downright stupendous. 

Because we are. Shhhh. 

  

3rd October, 2013 – Hang out with me!

My daughter has a slight cold.
She has been taking some medicine for it.
And it has a strange effect on her…

She keeps asking me to “hang out” with her….

Not that I don’t like hanging out with her, but it’s just cute and funny the way she does it.
Like a big baby wanting extra affection.
I guess when you’re sick, you want some extra tender loving attention.
Perhaps that’s what her “hanging out” means?

When was the last time you “hung out” with a loved one?
Do YOU ask for some hanging out time when you need it?
I know I for one need to learn to ask for some more.

Hope everyone is healthy.
Take care as the season changes.

With love,
Cara

1st October, 2013 – I’m back

I needed a break, but I’m back.

It’s been a tumultuous summer.
Lots of changes.
And now with Autumn on its way, cooler nights and breezy mornings, I am ready to share again.

In spite of hiccups and challenges, I think I have a sweet marshmallow life.
I am surrounded by lovely people.
I have so much to offer the world.
I have my health.

Being thankful is really magical.
