7 Things I Am Looking For….

August 31st, 2009 by Jane


I have a good life, great in fact on most days. But, sometimes I feel as if U2 wrote this song for me-at least in certain areas. Let me know if you have any ideas/products/solutions to the following desires!

1. New Musicians to Follow
My iTunes list has been pretty stagnant lately. The last thing I downloaded was music for the yoga classes that I teach. Ommmmmmm!

2. Comfortable High Heels
Oxymoron? I refuse to believe it!

3. Swimsuit
This suit is the cutest I have seen in years. I have the perfect shades to wear with this, now I just need some kicky wedge sandals!

4. Generous Monetary Compensation for Living a Creative Life
I am sending my wish out into cyberspace and┬ástarting a movement! Who’s in?

5. A Good Stain Removal Technique that Works Every Time
I have found that OxiClean works on most things, but I am still looking for the miracle product.

6. Meaning in Chaos
When I remember, I tell myself that it is all about moving closer to love. On bad days, I wonder what I have stepped in.

7.  Balance
We all know what to do: exercise, eat right, volunteer, choose work you love, be happy in small ways, love the world as much as you can, see the big picture, surround yourself with people you love and respect. The conundrum we humans have is that we cannot remember to do this every minute. We let inconsequential things get traction, the day blows apart and we are back where we started. Sometimes, I mutter to myself the words of that great philosopher, Dory, “Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.” It is the best I can do.

    I am definitely in for #4. A monetary appreciation for my creations would be great! To live in a community where art and creativity are valued and cherished would curl my toes with happiness!

    Ariel Gore has a lot of great –and positive– thoughts on chaos. Here are a couple of them:

    “The word ‘chaos’ brings up images of disorder, confusion and turmoil. But modern chaos theory doesn’t claim that there’s no order in the universe. No, chaos theory just reminds us that the order is intricate and changeable, that we might as well just give up trying to control and predict things. It’s the scientific version of “do your best and forget the rest.” ”

    “…here’s the thing: Chaos comes anyway. It comes whether we want it to or not. It comes even if we pretend we don’t see it coming. And here’s the other thing: Chaos is good news. It’s movement. It’s change. It’s revolution. It’s scary. But like intuition, I think we can trust it.”

    Kellie,

    Thanks for the comment-I love it! I am going to remember that chaos is change and movement.

    Take care,

    Jane
