I am working on getting better at blogging and sharing my thoughts so I decided to just start doing it. I am starting Thursday’s Thoughts to just share my random thoughts of the previous week.
The 49ers play the Packers this Saturday night for the right to move on to the NFC Championship Game and then on to the Superbowl. It has been far too many years since the Niners have brought home a Superbowl Win and I am so excited about their chances this year. I for one stand behind Coach Harbaugh’s decision to keep Kap in the line up over Smith. I know Smith was having a terrific year, but he was still mainly a game manager and I really think we need more than that to win our 6th Superbowl. No matter what I am proud of the team and thrilled that we have had 2 great years in a row with more to come.
It is interesting how many Facebook Friends are posting spiritual things since I opened up to this new path. I’m not sure if they were posting them all before and I didn’t notice or if they are also opening up to Spirit.
Either way, I am grateful for it. Everyday there seems to be at least 1 post that is so timely for me right now. I am beginning to get a new sense of purpose for Facebook now. I hadn’t been spending much time there at all for months before my rebirth, but now I actually enjoy checking in to see what terrific things are being posted.
I feel like I have been being tested lately. It seems like things crop up that used to really get my blood boiling and i am left to choose how to deal with them. I will say that I have noticed that I start with the anger and then I catch myself and tell myself to breathe and let it go. I’m glad that I can recognize when I am turning to an emotion that doesn’t serve me and that I can right it. I’ve come a long way in just a little over 3 months.
The other night I realized how good of a job I was doing keeping drama out of my life lately when some was brought into it by my daughters friend. At first I was getting so mad at her for being selfish and I was judging her and finally I thought she is on her own path and she chooses to bring this drama into her life and thrives on it but I am choosing to not have it anymore. So I put a stop to it at my house. I told her if she wanted to continue she could call her parents to come get her. She choose then to let the drama go at that moment and stay at my house. This served to remind the reasons why I don’t need the drama and to stop judgements from ruling my emotions so I am grateful for the lessons.
I find it odd how many people go out of their way to spread hatred. I mean, there are so many people who, say ‘like’ a gay rights Facebook page and then post comment after comment about how being gay is sick and a sin and just posting really hateful things. If you don’t like gay people and don’t want to be around it then don’t like a gay rights page. I would guess that their intention is not to spread hate but to share their beliefs and try to get others to believe the same way. Not sure but it is silly to me. If more people would just worry about themselves and leave others alone then I truly believe the human race would be much better.
There is another little kitten here at work that is doing its best to warm its way into my heart. I don’t really want to fall in love with it because of what happened with Chocolate Starfish recently. I don’t want to love the cat because I don’t want to be sad when it dies. I guess I still have to learn to completely trust in love and not block myself off from things just because they might end up with sadness. The truth is, I know I could fight this til I’m blue in the face and the cat is going to win anyways. I’m a sucker when it comes to those cute little guys with their adorable little kitty noses and their “pet me” looks.
That’s about all for today. Time to start having thoughts for next week. 🙂
