The holidays are well and truly over and I have done some soul searching recently. The holiday itself was not too stressful even though I have been doing some remodeling and decorating. I finally had the house in a clean enough state to feel I could decorate and have my daughter and her fiancé over for dinner. When I put up the little Christmas tree late in the afternoon I had a minor breakdown because the fiber optic rotator light wouldn’t work. I quickly grabbed the base of the unit and took it apart to take to the local big store to get the light I wanted to replace so I would have the right one. I made the purchase with 2 minutes to spare. Hallelujah, my tree would work.
Only it didn’t! That’s when I bawled. Now you would think that an adult wouldn’t start crying over something supposedly so insignificant but I had set a goal with the whole remodeling thing – it was all to be completed by December 23rd and it wasn’t, so I sat there and bawled for about 5 minutes. As I had that pity party, a sudden insight came to me that I had been running on fumes and being so tired that I was being negative about life and my goals. I thought: I am supposed to be able to keep positive thoughts and fulfill on my metaphysical teachings and here I was crying ? Where was my fortitude and my problem solving attitude? I sat for a short time and an idea came to me on how I could put lights on my tree and have what I wanted. The final product looked nice and I spent the rest of the evening finalizing my Christmas decorating and enjoying my Christmas movie tradition. The holiday turned out well and I went on after working to complete the remodel.
How does this relate to metaphysics? Thoughts are things, if they are negative then we have negative in our lives. I just wanted to show you that it can happen in an instant and be changed in an instant even with so called minor instances.
