Cat Hair

While vacuuming the cat hair from our couch this weekend and giving the couch a much needed deep clean, I had quite the realization.

No matter what angle I positioned the vacuum hose on the cushions the stubborn cat hair would not let go (and we have a Dyson!!)! It takes a lot of elbow grease and sweat to thoroughly clean the couch when it comes to cat hair, especially with microfiber. HOWEVER, if I were to just sit on the cushions, the cat hair would easily transfer from the couch to my newly pressed shirt or slacks.

I started thinking about this concept in the larger sense. Things we wouldn't want to happen to us happen so easily and things we want so badly take a lot of hard work and dedication.

Our clothing attracts the cat hair like a magnet as do our thoughts. When we focus on all the negative while we're trying to reach what we want the only thing we are going to attract to ourselves is the negative. To reach our goals and attract what we want we have to stay positive and work hard.

There is no quick fix to getting rid of cat hair and there is no quick fix to achieving your dreams. Keep working hard.

  1. What a great analogy!
    (But what does it say that with a cat and 2 dogs I've given up on the couch? LOL)
