Fact of Fiction?
A 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.
On 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?
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.

I 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…
“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…
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
“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

“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!
