There are days that just plain suck. I am not going to put any silver lining on it because that would be disingenuous. I can go through an entire day sulky and snappy. My children are big fans of Spongebob* so they love to call me “Krabby Patty” in these moments (and roll with laughter while they do it.)
Do I throw back my head and laugh at the foolishness of my angst? Heck to the no! Do I look like a saint? What I do is take away Spongebob for a week. This is how I roll sometimes. I am flawed and what is the word I’m looking for?…. Oh yeah, I’m human.
I live my life conscious of the fact that my thoughts create my reality. My vibration dictates what I attract. Even knowing this at my core does not entice me to turn every day around. And you know what?
Life is just fine! Every day does not need to be perfect. Every thought and action does not need to exude positive vibrations for you to have a great life. However, it does require a big helping of ownership.
When my kids are a bit on the sour side the days following my Krabby Patty days, I own it. What I put out comes back..in spades.
Once my mood starts improving and things are still going wrong, that is where I insert a head roll and laugh at my own frivolity. I’m just seeing a giant reflection of my time as Krabby Patty. I’m no victim! I own my stuff!
Having a great life – a happy life – does not require you are happy all the time. However, it does require you love all over the gunk that comes your way after a crabby day because it is just one more reminder of how incredibly powerful you are!
*Yes I do let my 3 & 5 year old children watch Spongebob. It affords me a peaceful half hour and I’m not applying for “Mother of the Year” so it works out just perfectly. You can hear more about my take on motherhood here: www.momgetsalife.com.
