Deez Butts Bar-B-Que

Along the side of interstate 65 South, there is a marvelous sign advertising one of the world’s most awesome flea markets! Not sure what exit, but I know it is in Shepherdsville Kentucky. As we traveled to Bowling Green for a family reunion, last Saturday a new sign caught my eye. Dee’s Butt BBQ. It was adorable.

Of course, I must provide you with a scene: I am driving down the interstate, on a time line, mom is in the passenger’s seat. We are chit chatting back and forth. She is making fun of me for being Ms. Social Butterfly in Dollar Store and appears to be fretting over the time frame because we are supposed to be at the reunion by 1 o’clock, their time. She hasn’t told me she is worried, but I know. However, I had planned accordingly and was confident we would arrive promptly at 1.

Then it happened once again! I saw the sign of the cute pig, with her back to us and it was advertising some of the best BBQ in the area. The first sign I ignored. Then the second sign appeared and I believe there was a third, but secretly I might have made that up! My body was screaming BBQ, my mind was saying, “Do it. Turn off. You have time. Enjoy the journey if BBQ is what you want, stop and pick it up.”

I decided to make myself almost nauseated so I had an excuse! Finally, the exit was coming up…what do I do? My palms are sweaty, my stomach is burning for fear of what mommy is going to do or say. I knew I was about to upset her. I Weave in and out of traffic, Oh know a trucker has pulled between me and the exit! Oh forget it, I will eat at the reunion. I dropped my head and just kept listening. It’s okay I know we need to arrive on time. Truthfully, I didn’t need any BBQ anyways. (Keep reading I will tell you about my infatuation with BBQ and why I think I have it!) I was sad, but it’s okay maybe next time!

PSYCHE! Are you kidding me? If you have read anything I have written lately, you will know I miss nothing that is fun and adventurous! Yes, a truck did pull between me and the glorious BBQ! However, I checked behind me, braked, zipped over and shew I made it!!! Now, where is that BBQ?

In her mind, my mother was freaking out, but I reassured her, we would arrive at the family reunion no later than 1 o’clock!

We drove down the road a bit, searching for Dee’s. I must admit I was becoming concerned! What if I don’t find it, I should have stuck to the course. Then the arrow appeared this way to BBQ! Oh no!!!!! It is at the Flea Market! We drove in the gigantic parking lot, booths everywhere, people shopping, signs of corn dogs, fresh veggies and lemon shake-ups, but no BBQ. Finally, someone pointed to the building and told me it was inside. Left mom in the car and I was on the hunt. Funniest thing ever! When I walked in and requested more specific directions, it was on the opposite end of the building. When I finally reached destination Dee’s Butts, a line of twenty people or more were standing there just as excited as me. I will admit I almost turned around, but my heart kept saying no you deserve this, you have come too far, a little wait will not hurt you.

The line moved pretty quickly and I was up to order. I picked it up and went as fast as I could to the car. We stopped at a gas station and gobbled it up. As for the BBQ, it was good. I would definitely recommend Deez Butts Bar-B-Que,  in Shepherdsville Kentucky.

You see, it wasn’t all about the BBQ. It was more about the feeling attached to wandering off the course. Yes, I will admit these BBQ cravings have become hilarious since I broke my leg. I don’t know if my body is craving the protein, for healing or if it is something else. However, I now love BBQ and I love to stop, chase down a stand and enjoy the feeling of hmmm…let’s call it Big Butts BBQ. I love the adventure, I love to taste it and savor it.

We arrived at ten till one and everyone was happy to see us. It turned out to be a magnificent day visiting with family, eating more food and being together. (The BBQ was a precursor to how amazing our trip was going to be!)

If it is BBQ or canoeing it doesn’t really matter what brings you joy, but if you want more joy then do more of whatever it is. There are many paths to take in life, the greatest part is you get to choose when to change paths or want to continue on. Live to be happy!!! You deserve it.

So many items to write about…

I hope you have enjoyed reading my writings, as much as I have enjoyed blogging. I have been extremely blessed with amazing people and events. The unfolding of daily living, when you expect the best for you, is simply described as awesome!

For example: I felt like the last few days I was running a marathon, even in my sleep. However, each day was filled from early morning to late at night, with precious moments. Some have been reflections and yet others have been divine intervention to assist me or someone else.

Each morning I would begin with a quick meditation, consisting of clearing my mind similar to a blank canvas. Next, focus on my breath for about two minutes, finally I would look for fun filled events scheduled for the day. What? You want to know if I schedule a fun event everyday? Yes, yes, yes, yes I do and I won’t stop!

Of course, I am like everyone else in the world, where sometimes you have tasks that are not as pleasurable as others. However, if you do not schedule something fun in each day; the days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months. Before long you are a shell of a human, who might schedule a 1 or 2 week of vacation to ‘have fun’ and enjoy the people you love! The scariest factor is if this is the case, by the time you arrive at the glorious vacation, to have fun, you are exhausted and probably forgot how to have fun. This makes me sad!

Begin each morning with gratefulness, good feelings, and schedule something fun/happy each day! If something henders your ‘feeling good’ vibration focus on what you want or a solution. Life is meant to be glorious, therefore live like it!

Enjoy the journey! Smell the flowers! Listen to the beautiful music all around you! Tell yourself in the mirror how special, beautiful, fabulous, healthy, happy and anything else you are!

When the day is done, lay your head down and take a few minutes to review the great feelings of the day! If there were some bumps in the road remember, you can’t change anything in the past therefore, only focus on the good parts and the rest will take care of itself.

You truly are amazing!

Watch “Abraham Hicks 2017 – Curing Mental Ilness” on YouTube

Wow! Fell asleep at 9 PM last night only to be awaken with nausea and frustration at 3 AM. I am unsure why however, I crawled out of bed, gathered some necessary items to calm my stomach and then laid down. Now it is 5 AM and I am still awake. 

I have meditated, blogged, tossed and turned, but nothing seemed to help. I finally decided to listen to an Abraham-Hicks on you tube. The message was so powerful I had to share with you. 

Listen to the lady recovering from mental illness! She is on a terrific path. However, can anyone identify a relatable message from one of my previous writings? Of course, it is her paradigm holding her back. She ‘worries’ about what people think. Why? Because of her past issues. This is what I was explaining…learn from the past, but do not live there.

This is a great recording! 

Life is waiting for you to enjoy. You create your own reality? Yes, therefore begin this day…this Monday morning to change your conversation about yourself. If you have struggled with mental illness in the past then leave it there. Who are you now? Not 15 years ago! Live for today! What do you have planned fun today? Anything? If not search for the fun moment throughout the day. Then right before you crawl in the bed write down at least fun or funny times you had, throughout the day. Can’t find many? Then begin planning for tomorrow. What will I do for fun tomorrow? Tuesday evening, write it down again. Repeat this until your conversations consist of how much ‘fun’ you are having. Before long all you will have to talk about is how much fun life is and how when you think it, it happens! 

  1. If others around you do not appear to be amused or as inspired, send them a pink bubble in your mind, full of laughing gas and it burst in their face. Only to force that person into a contagious laughter!
  2. Do not be afraid to tell the people you love and enjoy to be around, if their negativity or hateful words are hurting you. They may not understand at first but it won’t take long for them to catch on. 
  3. Most importantly enjoy! Be happy with the process or journey of life through finding your joy.

Continue to hate it, but this was a little bit better, but there must be a better way!

Purchasing a car sucks! I have been here for 3 hours, I know right, this is crazy. I have a great sales representative,  but if I were to be super honest, I just think the entire automobile industry and the purchasing of a car, is as bad as going to the dentist and receiving a root canal. 

I mean let’s think about it! You spend a fortune buying a car, it takes damn near all day. Also you are continually being repremanded for driving too much and putting miles on your car. Why do we purchase a car? In reality you buy it to drive it. However, no matter what I walk away feeling like crap and need a nap. Similar to a root canal. I will continue to say it, “There must be a better way!” 

This time I wrote a letter stating what I wanted and moved forward. I am not excited about the past three hours. Instead I am wore out, my friendly disposition is swiftly changing. Just take my money and let me sign my life away. If you are reading this please allow me to apologize. I am trying to grab a feel good vibration. I guess I can share with you the letter I wrote to give to the dealer, so we were on the same playing field. (I will include the letter on my next post)

I must take a moment to shout out Rob Mac, at the Kia store in Louisville Kentucky. Although my sweet disposition was quickly diminshing because of the three hour wait; he did fill all my expectations from my letter. He was amazing! He was honest, kind, caring, provided me with options and he has many years of experience. Therefore, if you must proceed to purchase a vehicle in Kentucky, he is your man. He continually let me ramble, he answered any question and although the ‘paper work’ took forever for me to purchase my car from a lease, he was an amazing representative. (Please tell him I sent you, if you decide to search him out.

A little word of advice only lease a car if you live in a metropolitan area. If you live in a rural area look at your sales representative and say at the end of this lease (maybe before the lease up) I will have over 75000 miles on it and if and when they respond witb, “That is not a problem.”

Simply request, “Type it up and give it to me to have notarized.”

Next, file it with your paper work because unless you live  only 15 miles from work and you have one child, this is not the deal for you.

For example: You would drive 31200 miles in a four year time period, transporting yourself, to and from work, driving 30 miles a day, only 5 days a week. That provides you with approximately 16800 miles to ‘play with’ spread out over four years. Which leaves you with 4200 miles each year. Therefore, be careful how many sports events you allow your children to be in, don’t forget you need to purchase a rental car for those fast break get away weekends, but you couldn’t drive your car because it might add an extra 1000 miles to the mileage which will in turn create a great deal of turmoil later on. What? Did you guys read that last paragraph? That was crazy!! I still question why insurance companies allow this new insurance which is entitled Gap insurance.

The title Gap insurance, which I recently learned is required with a lease, should give us a clue as to how ridiculous, the leasing of an automobile, is for many consumers. But especially those who choose to live away from a metropolitan area. 

Okay I am done discussing this. It turned out terrific. Yes, I owe to much on my car now, yes I still have too many miles on my car, but I have enjoyed every mile and will continue to drive. Open the sun roof, turn up the radio and let it fly! The only difference is now ‘Fancy’ is now mine and I have less limitations. 

I am sorry if this was a bit on the negative side. I truly want this message to assist consumers. It is fine if you tool around town, for you to Lease an automobile, but if you live more than 15 miles from work or play, my advice to you is, buy your car!

Have a blessed day!!!

It’s okay no matter what…

I don’t care if you cheated on your diet, smoked a cig or fell off the wagon of your 12 step program. You are okay. No one is perfect and please stop thinking about what is in the past and begin to create your reality. 

Did you know your reality can only include the present or future. Meaning what is or will be is all you truly need to worry about. Even if you just took a bite of the yummy nothing bundt cake, two minutes ago and your concious mind is reminding you of how fat you are. Tell it to shut up. 

Paradigms are people, places and events from the past. They are our best way to create connections. No they are not all positive, some of our paradigms are negative. Almost like your brains defense mechanism to protect and serve you. For example: In the wonderful Disney movie Lion King the monkey or chimp (not sure the species) doctor hits Simba on top of his head, when he went to swing the staff and bang Simba’s head again, he moved. He learned from his mistake! 

Therefore, learn from your paradigm, but do not live by it. If you are struggling with something that creates feelings of anger, insecurity and despair my best advice to you is abort abort abort out of the situation. The meaning of life is to live the happiest you possible can. Expect to live in abundance of experiences, wealth, health and longevity. Enjoy. 

If you are constantly saying oh I can’t lose weight, or I can’t just feel happy or whatever your excuse is it is YOUR CHOICE. You get to decide to feel good, be happy and live in bliss. I tell people all the time this is my pink bubble of fun around me and if you make my pink bubble feel full of fun and laughter, I will grow stron ger and more beautiful. However, if you continue to criticize me (even when you are talking to or about yourself, just like if I were to say ugly things how I would really feel!) I will need to excuse myself from your gloom, doom, dark, disgusting bubble. Sorry, it’s your choice to live that way and my choice to live happy. 

Change your vibration. Enjoy, begin laughing at nothing almost similar to a fake, forced laugh. Before long, after everyone around you, begins to laugh, you will have the place rolling and anticipating in what your next move might be. 

Life is to be happy and have fun. 

Leave the past in the past! Learn from it and move forward.

Eight Ways to Make a Miracle!!!

Amazing!

themindofkitty

After losing my Mother in June 2015, I was forced to dig through many memories. Things she had saved and 200 years of what my family had saved!!! It has been a reflective time with both sadness and joy!!! Today, I am sharing something I had saved!!! I think it is some of the best advice anyone could give!!!

  1. Don’t die with your music still inside you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice, find the passion that stirs your soul and then follow it.
  2. Keep this in mind: You can’t give away what you don’t have. You can’t give happiness if you’re unhappy. Nor can you receive it. So create an inventory of love and joy.  The universe responds with the same energy that you send out.
  3. Embrace Silence.  Scientist and religious philosopher Pascal observed that all man’s unhappiness comes from his being unable to sit quietly in a…
