Wisdom: The Evolution Of Life

Fact of Fiction?

wisdomA couple quotes come to mind sitting here putting together today’s roundup of Weekday Wisdom to share with you. The first one is “Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.”― Oscar Wilde

Often pondering the true meaning of these words by Mr. Wilde, my thoughts go to another saying: “Be careful what you wish for as you might surely get it.”  Given my outlook on life, such sayings and quotes point me to the matter of focus – what things I am giving my attention to and hence calling into my experience. Some of you might gather from that statement that Law of Attraction is a philosophy, theory, spiritual belief – however you wish to label it – that is part of my personal belief system.

Yet, there are days when I do question whether I called the experience or whether it is a result of the collected buy-in to the notion that what we are seeing is the “truth.” Specifically, in a recent post I shared the economic impact that the drop in oil prices is having here in Alberta, Canada and in many parts of North America.

That post was in part a telling of the tale of what friends/workers here in Edmonton and other places are experiencing. It was also coming somewhat from my personal experience.  Then came Wednesday, January 20, the telephone on my desk rang and it was my boss inviting me to her office. The long and short of it, my position is being phased out due to the downturn of the economy and the need to cut large expenses. I am a big-ticket item it turns out.

Sixth Sense, Law of Attraction or Wisdom

The news was not a surprise as the writing was on the wall. I read them out loud for many months and making suggestions how to weather the storm. For whatever reason, my reading was not seen as correct and here we are.

the universeOn New Year’s Eve night, as I did my Vision Board my two primary material requests were for a new and improved place to live and a new job. Both requests were made with a grateful heart for both my current (to this day) place of abode and employment. However, my soon to be former home was no longer meeting my needs and I had a sense that my time with the organisation was nearing an end. Was it sixth sense in the latter? Was it my professional experience and knowledge about marketing, business and budgeting that was telling me that the path was unsustainable and something would have to give? Did my thoughts call to me a redundancy letter?

READ  Black Friday: Quality Vs Quantity

Honestly, I have no pat answers to any of those questions. The only answer that I have and can genuinely offer to anyone going through this experience at this time was, funny enough, included in my Tuesday Thought video as well as the focus of this week’s Weekday Wisdom.

wisdomI Release You With Love

“People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.”  And some you will have to let go.

“Today, I release anything and anyone that no longer supports, enhances or helps to improve my journey. I do so not with any feeling of regret or animosity, but from the Spirit of Love.”

Fear No More…

READ  New Year, Better Woman

let go“I release my fears and fill the spaces that are empty with Love.”

Fear is such a crippling emotion and once it gets hold, releasing it can be the most challenging thing to do. Love conquers all feeling of fear so today, replace your fear with doses of Love and allow it to become your guiding strength through any challenge.

Thanks, But No Thanks…

“It is without regret that I will not be in attendance at any arguments today.”

Minding your own business, keeping wise counsel and paying attention to only what will move you in the direction of your deepest desires for this year and the rest of your life, require you to decline invitations to arguments and affairs that would do otherwise.

It Is A Complete Sentence

wisdom“No is a complete sentence and so often we forget that. When we don’t want to do something we can simply smile and say no. We don’t have to explain ourselves, we can just say ‘No’.” Susan Gregg



Friday, January 22

“Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door!”

Spending time with children and animals certainly reminds you of the joy of being free, unencumbered by people’s opinion, fear and doubt. This weekend, become and child again and let it all go!

Have a blessed weekend! Cannot wait to see what next week brings! Be sure to join this community and converse with me about life and its evolution! When you sign-up, you get my FREE monthly newsletter that includes and affirmation poster as well as the Weekday Wisdom right in your inbox!

  1. I have been making a conscious effort to live by the let it go philosophy. I’m a natural worrier and not only do I worry about things going on in my own life, I worry about the lives of those who confide in me and even those who don’t. I am too wrapped up in trying to save people or help people I care about, and I have to realize that not everyone is going to heed the advice they seek and you have to let people make their own choices in life. I’ll get there, hopefully.

    1. Ms Claudette

      I am not sure that “natural” is what I would use to describe your brand of worrying. It was also mine in the past. Worrying is a learned behaviour in my view and comes about as a result of us being taught that we need to measure up to the everyone else. When we compare instead of embrace where we are in all spheres of our lives – we worry when we feel we are or have fallen short. My hope is that you will in fact get to a less worrisome place in your life. Namaste. 🙂

  2. When I read “let it go” in the beginning it clicked “frozen” movie song in my mind and you also shared that. I love that movie and song too

    1. Ms Claudette

      LOL! That song! 🙂

  3. It also happens to me, although not very often. I sometimes get a hunch of what is about to happen. Letting go became one of my favorite songs because I often hear my granddaughters sing it.

  4. lexie lane

    My kids really love that song. If you need thing to let go, then let it go.

    1. Ms Claudette

      I think most of them do! LOL. As that old Nike ad says – “Just do it.” Thanks for visiting again Lexie! 🙂

  5. Eileen xo

    As always, love and enjoy your writings! I have a heavy load on my shoulders and meed to let it go!

    1. Ms Claudette

      Sorry to hear of your challenges Eileen. Know this, “one day at a time,” and if that is too much load, then try one minute at a time. I know it worked for me and I know you are a woman of strength. Should you need an unbiased ear, I am here. Email me at daughtersofsheba@gmail.com

  6. The older I get the easier it is to just let things go and live my peace. Age does bring wisdom I suppose

    1. Ms Claudette

      It most certainly does! In my 20’s I would not have agreed with you but now, I wholeheartedly do, Patty! 🙂

  7. My son teachers me daily to let go of yesterday and live in the moment. Kids are the best.

    1. Ms Claudette

      They are marvelous! Take my granddaughter – when she first fell in my presence, I used a phrase that we used with her own mother as a baby – “uppa!” Since that day, anytime she falls or bumps into something, she says, “uppa!” and moves right along. No tears, no blaming, no swearing and no animosity. Just a gap-tooth smile and goes on with her life. 🙂

  8. Can you believe I’ve never seen Let It Go?! Even so, I def. agree with the sentiment.

    Flip Flops and Furs

    1. Ms Claudette

      Until I had a granddaughter, who started going to daycare and came home, at 14 months singing it in her jumbled way, I didn’t know it either. She is now almost 19 months and still sings and sways to it. 🙂 Thanks for the visit!

  9. letting things go is something that i am trying to work on as i tend to have a hard time doing that. after working at disneyland though i am so ready to let it go of Frozen and the songs lol.

    1. Ms Claudette

      You are killing me Michelle!!! That was so fun re Disneyland! Yes, letting go is like anything else in our lives, we have to practice it to get to the point when we can do so in peace and with love. 🙂

  10. It is hard to let people go sometimes. It’s easier if you do it from a spirit of love.

    1. Ms Claudette

      Precisely! If you are “letting go,” from a place of love for yourself and of what is in the best interest of all parties concerned, then you can do it and do it in peace. Thanks for sharing that Rosey! 🙂

    1. Ms Claudette

      It is a very cute, nice and true song, Jennifer! 🙂

  11. I love this post. But now I have ‘Let It Go’ stuck in my head…

    1. Ms Claudette

      LOL! So many of you are now singing “let it go!” Awesome, as it means so much more of us will be at peace! 🙂

  12. This is a fantastic post, we need to let it go and enjoy life x

    1. Ms Claudette

      I am glad you found it interesting Claire! Thanks for visiting again. 🙂

  13. Thanks! Have a great weekend as well! Stay warm!

    1. Ms Claudette

      Same to you! 🙂

  14. Life is most definitely too short to hold on to things and I find that when you do let it go that more often than not something better comes along. I think I have seen the movie Frozen so many times that I probably know every word! My girls watched it at least once a day for months!

    1. Ms Claudette

      LOL! My granddaughter is always singing it – although her words are a jumble! 🙂 I do hope that the meaning might somehow sink into her consciousness and that she grows up having the ability to just let go of what no longer serves her.

  15. Now I’m singing Let It Go – but really, great post of the little reminders we need in life..

    1. Ms Claudette

      It is such an infectious song! 🙂

  16. Elizabeth O.

    We have the tendency to feel things that are coming to an end, don’t we? It’s like intuition, or maybe just realizing that things would have to change. I don’t know either. Lol. But it’s really just better to let it go, to let better things come your way.

    1. Ms Claudette

      It indeed is! That is why I am such a big “fan” and maybe you could say practitioner of “letting go,’ because it has served me well. Thanks for your comment Elizabeth. 🙂

  17. And in the words of Frozen ‘Let It Go’ because life is too short and we need to make the most of the time we have left,

    1. Ms Claudette

      Indeed Ana, indeed! 🙂

  18. That song is great when I have to let things go. I need to sing this song to my kids.

    1. Ms Claudette

      It’s my granddaughter’s favourite song – well one of – and it has grown on me. 🙂
