my life story

Tuesday, December 30, 2008


It’s 70 degrees and sunny today. The air quality is fantastic. This is why people live in LA man. This is it. It’s almost January! Some people might not like this. I don’t understand them but it leaves more room for those of us who do. It’s just stunning out and it puts me in the most wonderful mood. It feels wonderful to be alive.

I think that 2008 was one of the longest years in my life. So much has happened. When I think back to this time last year, it seems so long ago, so far away. With everything going on in these “interesting” times I certainly feel extremely grateful for all that I have. It’s a lot. HEALTH, HEALTHY BABY, OWN HOME, HAVE JOB. Dear god it’s a lot. Thank you God, thank you angels, thank you.

I started reading this blog that the Gallivanting Monkey links to and I’m totally addicted to her ghosty stories and ability to talk to the dead. It’s awakened all sorts of things in me that have been dormant for a while, lucid dreams and an interest in telepathy, etc. It’s cool. One thing she talks about a lot is life purpose and how most people are looking to understand what there purpose is in this particular life. It’s not a question that I’ve often asked myself because I think I’ve always known why I am here. Of course it’s easy to forget and lose track and lose sight and get caught up in petty things. I decided after reading her blog for 3 hours one day that I would do a meditation on why I am here and what my life’s purpose is.

So I did. I went home and Deron was teaching that night (this was like 2 weeks ago) and Davey was asleep and I did a little meditation and I asked my spirit guides to tell me what life’s purpose is. My answer came to me immediately and it was clear as a bell. This is what I heard – “refurbish and redecorate your condo”

I’m not joking. That’s what I heard.

Well it’s nice to know they have a sense of humor.

So that’s what I’ll do. And I think it’s great because not only is it funny but it does make a point. I’m here to live my life. To go to work and create a home for my family and live in the home and to love each other. I’m here to love and be loved and pick flooring and paint colors.

I’m truly blessed.

New Years Resolutions are stupid but I’m trying to not eat sweets for one month. No sweets until February. We’ll see if it helps. I’ve gained a ton of weight and I can’t fit into my clothes and I can’t afford to buy new clothes so I better lose the weight. Also I’m going to try and walk more for longer amounts of time. In New York I had to walk up 6 flights of stairs just to get to work everyday. Also we would walk to the park at least 3-4 times a week. Here we’ve been just strolling around the complex with davey who walks SLOW and I drive to work and take an escalator (no one walks up the escalators here). Car culture = Fat Ass. BUT since the weather is so nice I have no excuse not to get out there and do it. I’m doing it.

Please don’t bring up the 100 sit ups a day for 100 days challenge of 07. it was stupid and you let me off the hook to easily.

Happy new year!
