Cleaning every day, all the kids' toys and things lying around, I find myself quite enjoying myself. After we put the kids to bed I come to my room and put all the kids toys left in my room from the day's play in a small pile by the door. (more for precaution reasons along with my neat freak tendencies)
Ninja turtles, batman, a golf club, a half-naked barbie, a hello kitty purse, and of course shoes.
I start to think what they were doing that day and a little bit of "what the heck is this doing here".
I love my life.
They pretty much saved me.. and I will never be able to thank them enough.
My little ninja turtle lovin all around boy.
Like I said, I love my life. :)
Now, I have something to chat about. Oprah fan or not, hear me out.
I am an Oprah fan. I loved her show. and for on and off period of times watched regularly.
Whether you like her or not, you cannot deny she is an amazing woman who has done some even more amazing things for others.
Yesterday was her last show. No guests, no music, it was just Oprah talking to her viewers the whole hour. She said her "love letter " to everyone.
I watched while I sewed and played tic tac toe with Beck.
It was pretty great. I was in the mood for some heart to heart so this probably helped. :)
She talked about a previous guest. A woman who was a Harvard educated brain scientist and then had a stroke. It affected left part of the brain that did the communicating. But she was still "there" and wanted her doctors and family to know that. She said she could feel the energy of people that would walk into her room. And if a doctor came who didn't even act like she was there, she then, wouldn't give back to him showing she was there. It was all based on peoples' energy.
Oprah quoted that woman saying: (and even has it hanging in her office)
"Please take responsibility for the energy you bring into this space."
Wow. What an amazing quote on so many levels.
First.. take responsibility! No matter what your dad did, or your childhood was like, any abuse you recieved, (things that are very common sadly) do not blame that person or what happened for who you are now. Take responsibility and move forward. Be a better person because of those things.
Then onto the next part of that quote, : for the energy you bring into this space.
Your energy, your attitude, everything. This may be connected with the thought "positive attitude" But it is so much more. If you are that good person, (you probably think you are) then let it show through your energy.
Like i said, it is so much more. And I could have a deep conversation about this if needs be.
Lucky for you, not right now.
For some reason, this quote was perfect for me. In so many ways. Though I won't go into detail.
I don't worship Oprah, she is not my idol. But she has done many good things.
I feel perty lucky I heard that quote.
