On Life with Catherine Tyson: Clear the Path

Ever wonder why it feels like we are spinning around and around like little hamsters on a Ferris wheel seemingly going nowhere and getting there pretty quickly?  We make one step forward and then seem to go two steps backward and we can’t seem to stop that cycle.

Let’s call that the “murky path syndrome”.  We keep going down the same path and expect different results.  We hold on to bad relationships hoping to get into good ones not realizing that with full hands, we can’t grasp on to anything else.

We need to first clear the path, sweep it out, mop it up, or whatever it will take in order for us to get a different result.  If we keep walking in the same mess how are we expecting not to get stuck in it?  We are often stuck and can’t figure the way to get out.  The light is illuminating at the door; the voice saying “that way” is so loud that we even tell it to quiet down as we say again for the umpteenth time, “how do I get out of here”.  When we hold on to things that are not good for us, we don’t attract good or sometimes we even chase it away.

That great guy or girl that you are looking for has probably passed you by so many times while you were wasting time with that joker on your arm, all the while looking miserable and wanting to be seen by them!

The job of a lifetime is out there but meanwhile you hang out with your friends under the tree “reasoning” about the life you want and could have if only you could get a job, meanwhile having not applied for anything.

You hate where you live but have been there for years and have not made any effort to get something better.

You want to travel yet you don’t have a passport!

And the list goes on and on.  And there are the folks that you see doing all of these things and instead of celebrating them you are angry or begrudging of their life.

Clear your path to walk through to your dreams.  Clean up your mess to breathe in the fresh smell of success and empty your hands to receive the blessings that are in store for you.
