If You Feel…

If You Feel...

This is definitely how I’ve been feeling for quite some time. I was SO on the fence after my last post, but after talking to the foster mother, I’m feeling more confident. Even better, I’ve got a potential Tortie about an hour and fifteen minutes away that is the same age as the little girl in the previous post, and all she’ll need is a special food bowl due to an allergy and an additional shot in a few months. That feels like I’m hitting the kitten jackpot…out of nowhere. I already have their names picked out, so I am waiting to see photos. I’m stoked, and praying.

Be true to yourself and what you want and need in your life. Cats bring out the best in me, so I think that says a lot about what I want and the direction my life is taking.

  1. HaHa!!! I LOVED this quote! 4 years ago, I took my son by the hand and I walked away from a long marriage and a longer career. I risked extreme poverty and isolation. I thought, living on the riverbank in a tent would be preferable to “this”.
    I love my new life and the universe saw fit to shower me with abundance. I couldn’t have done it without my critters who help and inspire all my art.
    The cats sound delightful!!!!

    • I found it and it’s how I’ve been feeling for way too long. Possibly years.

      I am the product of a mother who finally had enough, took her children, and left. It’s pretty sad when your own father helps pack the U-HAUL in which you move away in, but that’s a story for another day.

      It takes remarkable strength and courage to walk away from something you know isn’t healthy, happy, or fulfilling. My Mom wasn’t that strong, but she had me, so she knew she was finally doing the right thing.

      Initially, cutting things and/or people out of your life is very difficult, but in the end I think we all know it’s for the best. It hurts for a while, but we grow and move forward. I hurt a lot physically, so I feel like bringing these kittens home will help me heal a bit. They will certainly make the holidays a lot less lonely. I’m praying it all works out. It’s been a long time since I’ve had kittens, but I remember how mine saved my life and I will never forget that as long as I live.

    • I’m glad you liked the quote. I’ve been feeling this way for quite some time. Sometimes admitting it is the first step.

      I had a total breakdown last night over the whole kitten thing. It seems ridiculous, but it’s painful knowing that no one and nothing will ever be her again. There are relationships in this life that can simply never be duplicated. You can try, but it’s a new animal with it’s own personality and heart, etc. However, a black cat passed me this morning when I was sitting and stressing about it all, so I am taking that as a very good omen. I just need time to de-stress, because this should be something positive, not anxiety filled.
