Relax and suck it up

One of my favorite things as a kid was using crazy straws. Remember those?

No matter what drink it was, stick a crazy straw in it and it instantly became fun.   Ah, life before the internet…

Are you still using one daily?  NO?  Maybe we should, they have so much to teach us.  Crazy straws want to remind us:

  1. BE AWARE -Don’t use yesterday’s straw!!    Don’t let yesterday’s straw ruin or taint today’s drink!  Yesterday’s (or last year’s) residue will only ruin a perfectly great, new daily flavor!   Don’t waste your time trying to clean it all out thinking about how it got gunked up –  just get a new one every morning when you wake up!   New day = New flavor
  2. Sometimes it’s going up, sometimes down, sometimes even sideways, and sometimes you can’t even see where or what direction it’s going, don’t sweat it. AND DON’T QUIT!  That’s life. It’s all in line with a bigger plan. It’ll arrive.
  3.  Decide what YOU want to drink before you settle on something that someone else just offers you.  Once you start drawing or sucking it, you’ll get it- but by then it’s too late to change flavors, to say “Woops, I didn’t really want that!”  What are you dunking your straw into today?
  4. Don’t compare your drink and how quickly you’re getting it, with anyone else!  Find your own speed that’s comfortable, you don’t want to pass out, or drink too quickly, you don’t want a Brain Freeze after all!

Keep your momentum going and you’ll get Whatever YOU DECIDE to drink.  First thing in the Morning, get yourself a NEW straw for your life, and stick it into something clean and nourishing like Universal Goodness, Love, Peace, Happy Thoughts and Knowing that whatever you draw in today, will be best for you.

My deepest wish for you my friend is that you enjoy your drinking of Life. Enjoy all the loops you’ll take.   KNOW that it’s All Good, even when you seem to be going up, down, sideways, or loopty loops.    No doubt, the upcoming year will provide all those choices.

Here’s a little secret for you– the drink never really ends anyway, so don’t worry about it.  ENJOY.


“A chicken and some toilet paper”


…..she said as the car door closed.

55 minutes later, out comes a cart, my wife and a receipt for $167. 58!!   I guess the price of those oven roasted chickens has really sky-rocketed.

From Kitchenettes to Kosher Rolls to Tires and Telephones – you can get almost anything at some of these huge shopping centers and “Big Box” stores.   

The biggest reason they’re so popular is because generally, I think a lot of us are lazy. Some of us just like to go grab a 6’ cart and go wander in a Big Box store and drift through it to SEE WHAT WE GET.

Guaranteed you will come out with stuff you had no Intention of getting, am I right? You’ll use it, but you certainly didn’t know you wanted it until it was presented to you so conveniently, so it ends up in your cart.

The problem starts when we start “Big Boxing” our LIFE.  As a sperm, we all fought for THE goal – That Egg!      But then, as we grew older, we learned to wander, to become Unfocused.  We begin to “Big- Box” our Lives.  

  • Do you just settle for, and take what you easily wander by every day in life?
  • OR – Do you actively seek with a specific Intention?

It’s the difference between a flashlight and a candle.  One focuses the frequencies of energy (light) and become a more useful tool in life.  Look what a laser can do with even more focused frequencies! Ouch.

Do you have “stuff” in your life that you don’t want?  “Stuff” that you would have never asked for?  Maybe it was put in your cart by you without any thought.   Do not be distracted by the constant, barrage of opinions and thoughts that do not align with YOUR own.  Don’t let others fill your cart.

Hocus Pocus Focus.   With alignment of intentions, energy and focused thoughts – comes Magic
