American Cliche...

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

An expression or idea that has lost its originality or force through overuse cliché American cliché.

I've been wallowing in self pity lately...lost a good friend...pulled muscles in both knees getting into swimming pool...caught flu...heater went out during ice storm....yada yada yada. I keep thinking that my life has become an American cliche of all the things that can go wrong...loss of job due to illness...loss of medical insurance...gain of medical bills,,,forclosure..death in family...death of friends/mentors...morbidly obese...yada yada yada.

LET GO already...boy that trickster can creep in when your body isn't feeling up to par! Great news though, I started feeling better! WOW what a difference! I started my 'belly dancing' without hurting knees too bad. I am not under blankets and chilling. I even cooked soup (homemade minnestrone). So, enough of the pity party!

These SoulCollage cards helped me identify my latest fears...

DATE: October 12, 2009

CARD NAME: American Cliché
SUIT: Committee
An expression or idea that has lost its originality or force through overuse… therefore becoming one of the many… common.
1. Who are you and what do you have to give me?
I am one who is labeled for my physical condition. I am one who is grouped into the common cliché of obesity. I am one who is denied medical coverage. I am one who is pre-existing.
2. What do you want from me?
Become the unique, beautiful individual that you are. Go beyond the cliché into the true picture of wellness.
3. How will I remember?
When I connect with my support groups (Sparkling Angels) I will remember how truly unique I am. When I exercise I will embrace my beauty of movement.
SHADOW: Don’t ignore the serious nature of medical conditions, be proactive and improve your health. Don’t allow lack of money to halt your progress.
QUOTE: "Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses." Alphonse Karr

    My beautiful not let fear take your power away. You are beyond powerful! I love your blog..because although you are down and you do recognize the problems that are before have the amazing..and I say that again AMAZING capacity to look BEYOND those problems and into the light of solution.

    I hear everything you are saying...and I emphasize in the deepest way..but there are people that can and will help you. Just let your fingers do the walking get out that phone book and start calling some agencies to help bridge your gap.

    While you are letting that help you...start thinking about where you can tap some $$ in the meantime. Do you have stuff you no longer need? Put it on CraigsList a completely free service to sell things on. Every person you come across ask them if they might know of an avenue to see your artistic items...I'm putting my jewelry on a website that is all handmade. I know you probably have trouble getting out and about...but with that wonderful little computer dear can bring the world to you...begin and prosper!!!

    Those are a few ideas...also read my blogs on how much healthier and happier I am feeling eating REAL might find something of value!

    Big hug! I'm rootin' for you...YOU can and WILL come out of this...we all could be in the very same boat in a micro-second if something would go wrong in our own you are NOT alone in any way shape of form...look to the light! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
