DINK #267 There’s A Hole In My Bucket Dear Liza

Remember that old funny song “There’s A Hole In My Bucket Dear Liza”? http://tinyurl.com/lyzpzj

I don’t know why that song came to mind when I was thinking about what to blog about tonight but I think it might be because I’ve been doing a whole lot of praying this week and talking to my “angels” and guides. I think one in particular has come through with a very distinctive and flirty personality and must have sung that song into my ear to help me remember to not take things so seriously so that I could help you remember to do the same.

Pretty much my prayers and thoughts this week have been a litany of this thing going wrong (first a hole in the bucket) and then that thing going wrong (but how do I mend it?) and before you knew it I was off and running at a full fledged gallop of stress, fear, worry and overwhelm. Man can I get into that state easy as 1-2-3 ….until, that is, I remember that I only have to live in that state of being if I choose to live there. Had a pretty wonderful coffee this morning with two delicious friends and one of them reminded me that the place I was in this week—especially on Monday evening—is the “hit your knees” kind of a place of total and complete acceptance and surrender to what “is” and then having the willingness to ask for help from my higher power (who I choose to call God). I like my long-time sponsor’s quick prayer for this “I can’t, you can’t, he/she/it probably can so I think I’ll turn it over to him”.

It’s probably a good thing that I’m not a Reality TV show personality because these “hit your knees” prayers would singe the eyebrows off of anyone watching. I have to get pretty desperate and angry at myself before I’ll ask for help and a lot of times those kind of prayers are full of all kinds of pent up frustration and defensiveness. But once I get them out I always feel better for having done so.

Today my meditation was allowing myself to receive abundant love from the unseen. The intellectual part of me would assume that would be a very easy task but the feeling part of me knows that receptivity is the answer to all my problems.

May you be able to receive abundant love today and if you feel yourself getting a case of the “yeah-butt’s” when trying to come up with solutions to whatever dilemma ails you—take a listen to “there’s a hole in my bucket” and remember to laugh along the way!
