Awesome Song – A Beautiful Day

A Beautiful Day by India Arie

Life is a journey,
Not a destination,
There are no mistakes,
Just chances we’ve taken
Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now

Wake up in the morning
And get out of bed
Start making a mental list in my head
Of all of the things that I am grateful for

Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes new dreams new ways
I open up my eyes and
I open up my mind and
I wonder how life will surprise me today
Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes new dreams new ways
I open up my heart and
I’m gon’ do my part and
Make this a positively beautiful day

La la la la la la la la la (x3)
It’s a Beautiful Day (x3)

Life is a challenge not a competition
You can still smell the roses and be on a mission
Just take a moment to get in touch with your heart

Sometimes you feel like you’ve got something to prove
Remind yourself that there’s only one you
Just take a moment to give thanks of who you are
Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes, new dreams, new ways
I open up my eyes and
I open up my mind and
I wonder how life will surprise me today

Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes, new dreams, new ways
I open up my heart and
I’m gon’ do my part and
Make this a positively beautiful day

La la la la la la la la la (x3)
It’s a Beautiful Day (x2)

Let’s make this a wonderful
Let’s make this a powerful
Let’s make this a Beautiful Day
It’s a Beautiful Day

Life is a journey,
Not a destination,
There are no mistakes,
Just chances we’ve taken
Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now

Gratitude for Health – Day 16

As I write this, one of my dear friends is at a hospital, far away, with her daughter. They aren’t sure what is wrong and a whole battery of tests are currently being run. Unfortunately, the medical issues seem to come one right after another with the whole family.

I am so very grateful for my health and the health of my children. I am grateful for every day that goes by and everyone remains remarkably well. Without a doubt, we all can, and do, focus in on the things in our lives that are not working as we would like. It’s a shame that it takes something like this to cause me to realize how blessed we really are.

Until tomorrow!

Gratitude for a Good Night’s Sleep – Day 15

As the day draws to an end, I am so looking forward to a full, peaceful night’s sleep. I am soooo grateful for when I am able to get the perfect amount of sleep for me. Lately, it has been a bit hit or miss so I am lining up a good night’s sleep tonight. I am so grateful for nights where I lay my head down and fall fast asleep and sleep until my alarm goes off in the morning.

To help me on my way, I will be watching and tapping along with one of my favorite EFT practitioners, Brad Yates. 🙂

Sweet Dreams!

“But Tapping Seems So Silly…” – EFT with Brad Yates

When I first started learning about EFT, the big issue I had is that it looked stupid. I didn’t understand how it was doing what it was doing, but I learned rather quickly that it did work. Brad Yates covers some of issues you might have about the awkward feelings you have regarding how EFT ‘looks’.
