Dear Universe,


Sincerely, Jess

Do you ever one of those moments where you look at something and the universe comes full circle? Something happens and you're say, "FINE! I know, I know! I've been complaining too much! *sigh* My bad."

I'm currently babysitting Cheyanne, my God/Goddess daughter. I don't get to spend too much time with her because I work so much and she lives a good 30 minutes or so away from me. She's every bit of 3 going on 30. But her wisdom is infinite. Everything is better in purple, sponge bob rains supreme, and she is already a gamer girl in training (I'm so proud of that last one :D ). But looking at her puts a lot of things into perspective. The past few months of working two jobs can really tare a person down both mentally and spiritually. Everything can become so blurred and all in all you begin looking for a way to escape and give up. But I look at her and I think, ya know, life is only as difficult as you allow it to be. Often in life you only see the path you want to be traveling on. And that drives your intentions on the path you're on now. And you hope with all your might that at the end of the day, you're one step closer to the outcome you've been looking forward to. Perhaps that's been my problem the whole time. I've been knocking at a door expecting it to open instead of looking for another way in or trying another house.

So instead of complaining about having to work two jobs or the fact that those two jobs have nothing to do with my degree, I'm going to work on being happy that I actually have another job after over a year of trying to get one. And I'm going to be happy that I can actually pay most of my bills (minus school loans.... but let's not go there or talk about the extreme amounts they want from me). Life is about perspective. I learned that from Chey today. So what if you can't find the purple crayon. Grab another color and get to coloring! Or something like that hahaha. funny the life lesson that get thrown at you through the simplest of means. Silly universe. I hope your day is looking up like mine! Now, if you will excuse me. I've got a few episodes of Go, Diego, Go! to plow through. xP

My sage in all her wisdom hahaha


  1. You know, this is the perfect post for today, I needed a lesson in perspective as well.

    Here's to your god/goddess daughter and her wisdom, because seriously? I can fixate on the purple crayon or be happy that there are at least another 10 in the box. :)

  2. I am feelin' ya. I had a similar day today. Thanks for the perspective!

  3. Danni and RetroKali, I'm glad I'm not the only one. :D

  4. yeah we all get days like that...

    ...& erm i have a box full of purple crayons!! (did i just admit that?) erm yeah.. have a hug!! *huggs* xxx

  5. Isn't three year older wisdom great? Last weekend my three year old niece came to the dinner table, stood in front of everyone and proudly declared that her uncle's bathroom was really dirty. I think I should start paying her for her services, because after years of trying to get my husband to clean his bathroom, all it really took was a toddler. :P
