I allowed myself to fall into the trap of disappointment once again, an energy that I would gladly trade for anything else in the world, lol.  The problem always lies when I forget to stay present, when I imagine a particular future then become attached to it to the point that when it doesn’t manifest I have this wonky misery.  Like, I bring it on myself, and can even make myself sick over it until finally I arrive at the place I belong, in the present moment (yes!) where nothing has really changed at all.

This funk doesn’t happen often.  I am usually so la-la-la positive, so when I fall out of that, I fall kind of hard.  Like migraine headache hard.  But I take solace in aesthetics.  In the beauty of the world – the love I have for friends, family and pets; the incredible feeling I have when I hike around Green Lakes; the delight I take in listening to live local bands (I am a first-class groupie!); the exquisite artwork my students are creating; the smell of beeswax when I am working on encaustic paintings; the satisfaction of seeing my own art on the walls of a restaurant; and, of course, fashion.

I just love fashion.  It’s fun to put myself together for work, to put my best stilettoed foot forward.  I wore a lot of skirts and dresses in the past two weeks.  The weather in Syracuse, New York has been magnificent!

Life is a fun dream, isn’t it?  Even the perceived bad is really good in disguise and it allows me to have faith in the knowledge that whatever happens is for the best.  The universe is my best friend and ultimately, my life is a romantic comedy.  Thank you, Almighty, for putting me in situations that bring me closer to my wishes/prayers/dreams every day.  I trust you. <3
