Caturday: We are free to invent our lives; dogs, not so much…

(Note: This older post of mine popped up when I was reviewing some blogs and I thought it was very timely for me. Currently, I am out of work and the universe has not yet shown me what my next move is. I wrote this piece in 2012. Sometimes, I find it good to go back and check in with myself, it helps me remember who I am, which can be helpful.)

{Warning,,, for some reason I am feeling very philosophical today and not waxing very doggy…} If you really could come back as anything you wanted, if reincarnation was something that really happens, what would you be? I think that I would want to be an old person’s cat. I get to laze around all day with my person, get lots of treats, not have a lot of demands put on me, and sleep my requisite 20 out of 24 hours. But, alas, I do not know if that is possible. I realized long ago that I must invent my life here and now and not wait until the next life. So, I invented a life full of love and laughs and furry things. Even though I have to work to earn money (and usually I work about 12 to 16 hours per day), I am very lucky to have ‘invented’ or, at least ‘positioned,’ a job that allows me to be surrounded by my zoo on most days and work in an environment that is all my own (home). No one ever told me that I was free to invent my life (my parents would have thought this an utterly crazy conversation). Probably like most people, my younger life just sort of happened to me. I did not realize I was inventing my life for a long time, but then, the things I wanted, really really wanted, the things I prayed for, and lite candles for, started to materialize.

In today’s world there are ‘vision boards’ and ‘life plans,’ and there are even people who get paid to be your ‘life coach.’  Looking back (hindsight is always 20/20) I never had a picture but a feeling about my life. I just wanted to love and to be loved in return. I wanted a family around me and I wanted animals. I wanted meaningful work and to do good deeds. I never really visioned owning material things, that was just icing on the cake. No matter what your circumstance, I do want you to know that it is never too late to invent your life. To fill it, even if only for the shortest moment of the day, with your dreams and visions, and you will be surprised, how when you start to put out in the universe those things that you desire, in a positive way, they start to come back to you and your life starts changing toward the vision that you have asked for. (And that is how I ended up with 2 dogs and 5 cats, so make sure you realize what your inventing (hahahaha!))

One warning about this vision thing: I once asked the universe for some time off from work because I really was not having fun. I wasn’t very specific about it. Soon after putting that out in the universe, I broke my leg and had to take several weeks off. The clearer you are, the more likely you will get exactly the life you want. So I should have put out there: “please let me be healthy, on a beach, in the sun, having fun with my dogs and favorite humans by my side,”

I think you make your luck, you invent your life, and you make it happen every day. You have the freedom to invent your life – what are you inventing today?
