INSPIRATION, GRATITUDE & SURPRISES

The last week has been a bit of a whirlwind! Nothing like having a goal actualize in a HUGE way, only to get a call a few days later that it got postponed. BLAH. The little girl in me wanted to throw her hands up in the air and scream “You have got to be Fu*&*#g kidding me! I forfeit! Dooooonnneee!” But, I didn’t. Instead I got all zen about it and sat quietly. I thought…trust that it’s all happening exactly as it should and don’t be predictable by having a bunch of BIG reactions to this…oh and get over yourself why don’t you Kate.

After I centered myself, my girlfriend come over to drink wine and eat pretzels. Trust me, wine and pretzels have the power to turn the worst mood around. After the dust settled I realized that there was indeed a lesson in it for me. But, of course right? I was getting too attached to the results. Didn’t I learn anything from my time at a Buddhist monastery! Attachment only leads to suffering.

Sometimes I feel like this whole project is one big test and that at the end of the 365 days I might be shocked by what I actually learn from it all.

 -What Inspired me this week?-

This note from my Aunite-

honey pie,

not only do i love your blog,  I’m totally inspired by it.

I’m thinking of:    230 to 80 !!!   

-What am I grateful for this week?

Humor.  Well humor, my friends, family, white wine and pretzels.

A Tuesday night date with my 16-year-old brother Nik. It’s not often I can get him to hang out with me. We saw the movie “Ides Of March” and I enjoyed every minute of it. Well, except when I had to sit next to him during a sex scene, then I wanted to die.

-What Surprised me this week?-

Everything
