Resolve to begin.

cat alexandra, welcome to your clean slate

Welcome to your clean slate

Hello All,

Not sure who might make it over here from my last life and who will be new or what-have-you…so I’ll just start by saying, Happy New Year to you!

So much has happened over the past year and a half (roughly). I have written quite a bit in that time, but that was personal stuff I did to work things out for myself…not necessarily the version of what I would prefer to share.

I have been meaning to write here but didn’t quite know where to start. Then, it occurred to me that sometimes you just have to begin.

I learned this from my encounter with cancer, actually. This lesson seems to carry over into every facet of my life.

Let’s face it, sometimes what is being hurled at you can leave you so weary that the fact you’re able to remain standing is a coup in itself.

Me? Well, yeah I have definitely been weathered through some of that…and I have also learned that leaving that place doesn’t have to be such a big deal. Yeah, you want to get somewhere good, but you don’t have to overanalyze all of it just yet. If you can focus on taking a step, practically any direction (at this juncture) will suffice.

Baby steps, right?

So here’s the resolution from this Cat: Just get started.

I’m not sure exactly how or what I will tell here in this space. If you don’t like that I dawdle and circle over my points before I present my conclusions then that’s okay. I admit I may be a bit eccentric for the tastes of many. This is, however, my space…

I resolve to not stand in my own way. I resolve to be the most honest version of myself that I’m able to face under the conditions under which I must perform in moment’s notice. I will constantly strive to expand in self-awareness for the purpose of injecting the best of myself and my energy into the world as I co-create my life.

I’m resolved and grateful to have endured a self-created chaos that threatened my life to have come out feeling like a samurai sword that has been forged in fire.

I’m grateful to have fallen in love with myself and my life and then in a way that shocked me and which has made me a stronger person.

I’m grateful to have endured the growth that comes of the suffering from being rejected and hurt by inconsiderate people who have treated me poorly. In surviving this, I have learned new levels of compassion and unconditional love that I never held space for previously.

It is amazing what having your guts ripped out can do for your inner peace. It’s non-intuitive, but I swear it has worked on me in ways I couldn’t have fathomed as I choked on my momentary tears.

It has been an excruciating and delicious year and a half, especially this past 2013. I thank you with a bursting heart for all that I have been fortunate to experience in you, 2013.

I intend now that my love bursts out in infinite directions and smacks you right where ever you might need it most right this moment, Dear Reader.

My love to all…especially to those cowering from the corners of dark places. My heart goes to you. It is my wish that somehow hope may find you where you are…that you may find a place of peace where in the quiet space there you can find the strength to stand and weather your storm. And once that storm passes, may you find the strength to put one foot in front of the other and boldly take that one step that you can see, now. The others will follow.

It is a new year here. A new year with a clean slate.

I feel there are winds at our backs if we can stop and be still for a second to feel them there, caressing us gently as we move forward. Jupiter (A.K.A. the “Planet of Luck”) is in retrograde through March. I intend to allow it to supportively usher me along into this first quarter. I hope you will do the same for yourself. Another wish from me. 🙂

Cheers to you in 2014 and happy New You! Hope to see you around again soon.

Hello precious Cat!
I don’t get on the computer much any more. I was so happy to see your email. I am honored to be on your email list. If you should need an extra Grammy, please count me as one ready and able with love. You are such an inspiration. I don’t know if you realize what your gift of self has been to others. In my prayers, I ask the Lord to continue to show you how much you mean to others. Continue to be the best friend you’ve ever had, hand in hand with those of us who love you without ever meeting you in person. I have a feeling this year will be the best and most of blessings ever for many of us. Happy New Year!

Dear Theresa,

What a treat to hear from you, my dear! What you said means a great deal to me and I’m deeply touched. It’s been wonderful to have connected with so many awesome souls, like yourself (my surrogate Grammy lol) over the course of the past several years. I’m such a lucky person, all around. I noticed this the most by experiencing myself through others along the way. What an awesome gift. It has been so healing for me too.

Thanks for being a positive part of my life, Teege!

Hi Cat,
Thank you for your email which led me to your blog. I need to talk to you about something for this year. 2014 is going to be a big year for you and I would like to share something special with you. Could you get hold of me on my email so we can make arrangements to have a skype call or something. Thank you my friend – and thank you for sharing your message.

Dear Ann,

How nice to get your comment, thanks for stopping by to say hi! 🙂 It’s indeed a big year ahead, so much to be doing and in-joying in this life. Sure, I’d like to chat on Skype. I’m not sure if we’re connected there or not since it’s been awhile since I’ve been on there and I have tons of contacts on there. Maybe shoot me a comment with your Skype details and we can make sure we’re connected.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Catherine, I am so happy that I found your email address from one of my friends that forwarded a message from you to me. I loved reading your what life will be like in 2014, and I want it for me too. Seeing each problem as a challenge and a mountain to climb, will not get me down, and each year to come is going to be better! See you at the top!

Glad to here it, Ronald. If it’s a healthy obsession, I say, go for it with a gusto. 😀
