Rapunzel, as it turns out, did not need a handsome prince to save her. All she needed was her hair. Seriously, she could have figured that out all by herself without any help from princey-wincey-boy.
The same is true of us: our seemingly insurmountably problems or situations are all answerable from within. We are rarely rescued by others (supported and encouraged, yes - but rescued, no) and the answer to whatever is happening at the time slowly unveils itself from within.
|The pantry being reorganised shelf by shelf|
We are somehow wired (schooled? socialised?) to believe in the manifestation of rescuers and saviours requiring no input from ourselves - it is kind of romantic I guess. The Lotto sings this song but to a different tune as does the lure of a $100K education bill (....think how much you will earn once you are a qualified 'Bazookiatrician' and you will be rescued from money drudgery! - Meh.) The saviour mentality appears in many forms and guises, mostly all invented by consumerism and money-grabbing institutions.

Folks - the answers and solutions lie within us. Time to lean in and mine them out. The physical outworking of these answers are in our homes, backyards, our ability to do simple math, personal inquisitiveness, refection, determination, networking and persistence. The answers to our spending habits (for instance) are often found in the very feelings we so often try to medicate and the unreleased creativity seething within us. Only looking within can honestly and effectively release these things.
|The cauliflowers galloping along|
real fast now.
The most precious and powerful things we possess are our core values - not the life rules that others enforce on us, but rather those deep beliefs we have about life, self and others. If our core values are understood and used as a foundation for life, then we are of all people most content. However if we are climbing someone else's mountain, then we are of all people most miserable...stuck in a stone tower with our unused core values coiled up uselessly on the floor in a lifeless plait while we peer wistfully out the window of life awaiting a rescuer.
|The beautiful aroma of citrus blooms|
We are going to explore the topic of core values soon at Mr Home Maker - so stay tuned.
Make a decision to have a beautiful Sunday evening folks.
Take care and stay nice.
