Whimsy for Today

Becky Kueker

I have wondered lately what has happened to the Law of Attraction. You know, our relationship or partnership with the universe. It can be a good relationship—one that serves you and works with you—or, it can be an unhealthy relationship, a partnership that holds you back. As I pondered this a bit, has our attraction been sidelined, or it is yet another casualty of COVID? Is it still possible to develop or rekindle our relationship with the universe, and should our connection now be even more imperative at this point in time?

You know partnering with the universe is really a choice and a challenge. Everywhere around us is energy. Everywhere inside of us is energy. We crackle with it! Without purpose, that energy can be working against us. Like super heroes blazing through the universe, you have to be careful about how you handle all that energy. Most of us don’t even realize we have it. We can thank our subconscious for that!

The Law of Attraction naturally attracts us to good things, good people, and good opportunities. Sometimes it is hard to see opportunities beyond the masks that we have been hiding behind. You remember the people you met before COVID whose energy literally inspired you. Positive energy attracts positive people. Positive people attract positive things.

Buddha said, “What we think we become. What you feel you attract. What you imagine you create.” Across the universe, we all want peace, happiness, joy, positivity, and, of course, love; we want it all. To have those things, we must be those things. We are in a transition period looking for signs, hanging on to what we want to believe. Every single second is an opportunity. We fight over our moments, but, in doing so, the fight should make each other better.

I noticed a friend often tells me what she does not want and seldom focuses on what she does. Not a morning person, my husband sometimes tells me I have “grumpy face,” and that is not a good way to start the day. My younger brother is very negative about everything. Having a conversation with him is painful, listening to his version of what the universe should not be. An associate told me recently that being negative is the new positive given what is happening in our world. Time is slipping by. We need to light the torch and reignite.

I believe I should take responsibility for the energy I emit and embrace the amazing mess that I know I am, while sending positive vibes. People tell me I’m a handful, but I would rather be different and happy than negative and miserable. The more conscious we are about who we are, the more power we have to question everything. I want to spend the rest of my life drawing without an eraser, totally outside the lines. After all, we’re definitely limited editions.

As the Law of Attraction deepens, and the universe swirls around us, get those sparks glowing. Just think about what would happen if we recharged ourselves as often as we do our phones!

After retiring from a career as senior partner in a commercial architectural and interior design firm, Becky Kueker published a memoir on life after retirement, Hiding in My Pajamas, that launched a national speaking career. Her second book, A Classic in Clown Shoes, was published in May 2019. Both books are filled with deep, funny, intimate discussions and poignant stories from women and men who have proven that aging does not have to define you and that laughter changes everything.
