Each time I create something there is always the fear of ‘What if it is not good enough?’ Then the self-correction of ‘How dare I not value what the ‘Universe’ has channeled to me?’ Believe! Trust! Love! I keep repeating these words in my head.
Believe that my daughter will survive life-saving surgery for internal bleeding and give her endless love.
Believe that my son is so talented that he will shine and achieve when so many others don’t and trust that others will see it too.
There has been a lot happening in my crazy life and a lot I was hiding when I wrote my last newsletter to you and a feeling of yes, my life feels like a crazy roller coaster but also the knowledge that we all go through turbulent times and somehow have to just keep going. Retreating is not an option. Needing to be strong is, drawing on strength in any way you can.
The funny thing was my coping mechanism this time was to tidy up, to try and take control of some part of my world and for that, I turned to ‘Marie Kondo’. You know the beautiful Japanese lady on Netflix, who is taking the world by storm by teaching us how to tidy our homes and by doing so hopefully tidying up our lives! My daughter Chloe was already on that path in between hospital stays and this year believe me it feels like she has spent more time in the hospital than out and here we are at the end of March.
I recently spent a week with Chloe at her home, while she was healing from the previous hospital stay and we bought containers for her to fold things into. I bought a copy of Marie’s book ‘Spark Joy’ and at the time hoped that I would find time to read it. Then in my time of stress, I made time, to at least look at the diagrams on how to fold and watch some episodes on Netflix.
When I felt my life was becoming out of control, I started folding. I eliminated anything that didn’t ‘spark joy’ and I thanked everything I was discarding. Guess what? It helped! My focus was changing from full on stress and worry to thinking of ‘joy and gratitude’.
Yes! I got my miracle that I had prayed hard for and Chloe got through, is healing and now at home.
Yes! My son John’s first song ‘If you saw me’ got to number one on ‘Triple J unearthed’ music charts for one week before slipping slightly to number two.
Yes! All other disasters are either a work in progress or sorted and yes the house is tidier!
Also, I did all this while still fitting in all my other commitments. All this required me to believe, trust, and love, which is what I was talking about at the beginning of this blog, but now I was adding in joy and even more gratitude.
Gratitude and positivity have always been a part of my life but I would never have thought to thank the things I was discarding. What I realised was that I was thanking the energy and the memories as well, as I donated the shoes that hurt my feet and had never really been worn … they simply did not ‘spark joy’. There will always be challenges, big or small, life is like that. It is how we deal with the challenges that defines us.
Wishing you all a week full of blessings, joy and positivity Katy-K
