Opening Pandora’s Box

I am in love with the music of Scottish solo artist, Tom Walker. I discovered it quite by accident while searching for a different song on my “go to” music app. For some odd reason it makes me think of one of my favorite quotes by John Lennon, ” Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans”. Life is funny like that isn’t it? Just when you think you’ve got it all together, something comes along to throw a wrench in the works. And that reminds me of another saying “when life hands you lemons make lemonade”. I have no idea who coined that phrase, and I’ve never liked it. So much easier said than done. Taking the really tough , confusing, challenging moment’s of our lives and using them as a jumping off point for empowerment. It can be done. I’ve watched myself do it many times. So often I forget to recognize myself for it. As a part of my personal spiritual practice, I try to remind myself to ask the angels for help when I’m going through a rough patch. Sometimes being human means I fall down and I think the angels have abandoned me. Eventually I’ll come to my senses. I am truly fortunate because I have an amazing coach and mentor in Shaeri Richards. She does her best to remind me that “the angels have my back”. Now I think I’ll go watch my favorite Angelina Jolie movie, Salt, just for the fun of it. What the heck right? Life is short. Namaste and blessings, Mia Bella
