Tantrums for Grown-Ups + Poem

Submitted by on March 16, 2010 – 10:56 am

Couches - exellent places for tantrumsEditorial

Do you ever feel a little impatient because your dreams aren’t manifesting as fast as you’d like them too?  I know I’m good at making things happen, but yesterday, I felt stuck.  No matter what I thought, or how much exercise I did, the old proverbial ‘well I’ve asked, so where’s my stuff’ feelings were blocking my sense of enjoyment.  That was until I had a wee chat with the fabulous and highly recommended Ms Serena Star – my business coach (who incidentally offers a free first session). I said to Serena “I feel so frustrated!  I’ve done all this work and the results don’t feel like they’re here yet!  Part of me feels like throwing a tantrum!” Serena giggled and said “Well, why don’t you?  You could video it and put it on Happyzine”.  Ok, let’s just forget the video idea, but after I’d hung up, I went right ahead and threw a good tantrum on the couch.  I really went for it, limbs akimbo, as the old saying goes.  The four year old inside me had a great time. And you know what, immediately after that, I felt much better because I’d blasted all that fiery energy out of my system.  The very energy that had propelled me into all manner of great Happyzine opportunities had probably blocked up, when I decided to have a rest.  Now I’m back to my usual self. I recommend a good tantrum.  Sure you may have to do it alone as it’s not the most dignified activity for a ‘grown-up’ (what ever that term means), but I’ve gotta say: it did the trick for me!  After hearing of my tantrum breakthrough, my friend sent me this poem:

A Sacred Tantrum
Don’t try to control me do not try to fix me up.
i’ll take my half empty and I’ll upside down the cup.
cause sometimes the only relief
is to wail and wail for the grief.
A sacred tantrum is the medicine I need
to get down on the ground and kick and scream. . .
get down on the ground and kick and scream.
get down on the ground and kick and scream.
So, take me, take me as I am or leave me alone, leave me alone
I don’t need someone around to put me down
I do a fine job of that on my own
I do a fine job of that on my own
Just because you don’t understand me doesn’t mean that I am wrong.
Just because your rules don’t command me you say I am to far gone, you say I am to far gone.
I’ve got a women’s ways to do what I do and say what I say
I’ve got a women’s ways so take me as I am or go away, so take me as I am or go away.
My lines don’t fit in a linear grid
they probably never will and they never did
all those 90 degree angles just stress out my nerves
My roll tends to swerve my bodies got curves
My roll tends to swerve my bodies got curves
My roll tends to swerve my bodies got curves
Your not the first person to ever call me weird
that was to be something that i desperately feared
but the more that I accept the way that I am bent,
the more I take that statement as a complement.
So, take me, take me as I am or leave me alone, leave me alone
I don’t need someone around who’ll put me down
I do a fine job of that on my own
I do a fine job of that on my own
Just because you don’t understand me doesn’t mean that I am wrong. . .
Tantrum away sister!!
