Gratitude and Appreciation – Day 12

Let your dominant intent be…

Let your dominant intent be to feel good which means be playful, have fun, laugh often, look for reasons to appreciate and practice the art of appreciation. And as you practice it, the Universe, who has been watching you practice, will give you constant opportunities to express it. So that your life just gets better and better and better.

I have been sooo busy today and I am tuckered out so this will be a sort one.

Upon realizing that I don’t have to do large bits of exercise, I have been doing quite a bit in smaller time frames through out the day. I am so happy that my body is keeping up and can do it! I had been so much looking at how it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do that I totally over looked what it could!! I am so grateful for my wonderful focus shift :-)

I ripped my Byron Katie CDs into MP3 format and loaded my phone up with them. Imagine my delight when my car cooperated and actually played them over blue tooth on speakers in my car! Sometimes the Sync system in my car is a bit grouchy and has a difficult time playing nice with my phone :) Love it when things work out like that.

Was a beautiful day all around and now it’s time to go socialize with my hubby :)

Until Tomorrow!

We are All Vibrational Beings – Abraham Quote on The Law of Attraction

We are all Vibrational Beings. You’re like a receiving mechanism that when you set your tuner to the station, you’re going to hear what’s playing. Whatever you are focused upon is the way you set your tuner, and when you focus there for as little as 17 seconds, you activate that vibration within you. Once you activate a vibration within you, Law of Attraction begins responding to that vibration, and you’re off and running–whether it’s something wanted or unwanted.

All Is Well

A New Way to Cure a Headache? An Autocorrect that Made Me Chuckle :)

My high school daughter texted me from school today and I replied back to her :-) I get a little chuckle out of it every time I look at it!

Gratitude and Appreciation – Day 11

I am so very grateful to have done tons of walking today – over 15000 steps. This is something that I really didn’t think I would be able to do. I have been working on walking longer distances for quite a while and just don’t seem to do well with more than 1 1/2 miles at a time. Walking over 7 miles in a day wasn’t even something that had ever crossed my mind. I did it over the whole day with many smaller, joy-filled and feeling good walks. My last walk of the day happened at sunset and what a magnificent sunset it was! Absolutely stunning. Mother nature sure knows how to put on a show to be grateful for.

Last night I managed to get myself it a small twist over something that really wasn’t mine to get irritated about. This morning I went and found two very apt quotes from Byron Katie:

Staying in Your Own Business
I can find only three kinds of business in the universe: mine, yours, and God’s. (For me, the word God means “reality.” Reality is God, because it rules. Anything that’s out of my control, your control, and everyone else’s control—I call that God’s business.) Much of our stress comes from mentally living out of our own business. When I think, “You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself,” I am in your business. When I’m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die, I am in God’s business. If I am mentally in your business or in God’s business, the effect is separation.

To think that I know what’s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what’s right for myself? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve your problems for you. If you understand the three kinds of business enough to stay in your own business, it could free your life in a way that you can’t even imagine. The next time you’re feeling stress or discomfort, ask yourself whose business you’re in mentally, and you may burst out laughing! That question can bring you back to yourself.

Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life – Byron Katie and Steven Mitchell – Kindle Edition – Page 3

What ease is felt when I stopped trying to be in someone else’s business. It seems so simple but it makes the world of difference to how I feel. It is most definitely a skill that will require a bit of practice but I am up for it.

While I was out walking, I remembered that, at one time, years ago, I was listening to material by Byron Katie in my car. I wasn’t sure if I still had it or even where it could be. When I got home, I went nosing around and came across a treasure trove of material by Byron Katie. While I don’t remember actually doing much with it, I must have realized the benefit to be had as I have several works. I am so looking forward to looking through the stuff more fully tomorrow and ripping the cd’s to mp3s so I can listen on the go! :) Gotta love when I remember those type of “memories” to help me along my current path :) So grateful for it all :)

Until Tomorrow!
