When we have one of those inspired thoughts, you know the ones that come out of nowhere, we need to pay attention, but not overthink it. The mind is logical, and will do it’s best to talk us out of it. By not taking a chance, the once inspired thought turns into missed opportunity.
Our cat took a chance this morning by laying on my bed. He’s not allowed to do that, but I have to give him credit how it occurred. He slowly built up to the opportunity.
When we first got him, he never came into my room, but one day I walked by and saw him sitting in my window. I didn’t think much about it because he sits in every window. After a few minutes he hopped down and left the room.
One night my daughter and I were sitting in the middle of my bed watching a movie, and he jumped onto the bed, into her lap. We were surprised, but animals love to see what they can get away with. He was gently placed back on the floor. He still tries it, but receives the same end result.
A couple of weeks ago, I left my red blanket in the den and he laid on it. The blanket is usually on the foot of my bed, and after a washing it returned there. From laying on it while it was in the den, I guess he thinks it’s his.
He’s not allowed to lay on the bed, but he remembered laying on the blanket and decided to take a chance.
