Amanda Star Kingsley is a woman of big dreams and a child of the universe. She delights in life's simple pleasures: making someone smile, learning about a new resource, making a new friend... she lives every day in the light of possibility.
Life has thrown her a few hurdles, but she refuses to let them define her, and now she’s teaching others to do the same!
You know what I'm talking about... it periodically comes from the refrigerator or the pantry, if you're really lucky it's the car, and you dread finding the source so you put it off as long as possible.
Today I caved, I knew I had to find the slimy rotten potatoes in the corner cabinet. Why do rotting potatoes smell like fish? So gross.
If you are the primary homemaker of the house you might also know the stream of thoughts that can accompany this kind of adventure:
"Maybe it will disappear if I ignore it."
"Shit, I let more food go to waste."
"Shoulda cooked those quicker."
"I hope it's the store bought potatoes, not the organic farm share."
"Why me? Can someone else do the dirty work instead?"
"The Model"- a Brooke Castillo process, with an Amanda Kingsley twist...
Life out of alignment:
SITUATION - Stinky rotting food
MY THOUGHT ABOUT THE SITUATION (we'll go with the last one, but we could do a model for each) - "Why me? Can someone else do the dirty work instead?"
THE FEELING THIS THOUGHT TRIGGERED - Self-pity
THE ACTION I TOOK FROM THIS FEELING - Moping
THE RESULT OF THIS ACTION -Progressively stinky rotting potatoes, with a side of moping mama
