Amazingly Awesome things:
1) My car is repaired, which means no more soggy floorboards and mold! Now I get to have it cleaned, rotate the tires, and have one more oil change to prepare it for travel. I’m getting just a wee bit excited! 🚗 I couldn’t have done any of that without my dear father helping me pay for all of it. Beyond grateful for my family right now. 💜
2) I made it to Jazzercise with Noa in tow, due to a surprise extra day of spring break for her. Why we call it a break is beyond me. Lol. 😂 Anyway, here’s what’s super cool: I remained calm when I had to stop at home, then drive down the road, then come back a few blocks because I forgot the child care money, and have just enough time to change and go dance. The classes are paid for (thanks to my dad, again, I don’t have to quit this month), Orion lent me the child care money, and I had plenty of space to move around today (always nice). I’m making progress when it comes to being flexible and not getting flustered or rushed when the unexpected happens. Whew! And the workout was outstanding, of course. Woohoo! 🤸🏽♂️🌟
3) I decided to let go of any chance of seeing my security deposit, let go of my worry about it, and…let go of resentment about any potentially shady future events such as these. Most importantly, I decided to stop projecting negative circumstances or outcomes. Instead, I decided to place my focus on what I can control (my attitude and actions), channeling my energy only on what really matters and makes me feel good. I also learned to listen to my intuition next time. Omg, always listen to your intuition! Life is so much easier when we do.
Does it matter that I just now decided all of that? Not one bit. Do you realize that you can change your thoughts and thereby change your life ANYTIME you want?
🌟We create our own reality🌟
Really, we do. Science backs that up with evidence that particles have effects on each other’s actions. What we think affects us and the people around us. Ever heard of mirror neurons? That’s a real thing. Recall a time when you saw or heard about someone being excited and really happy about some event in their lives. Did you feel that zing, too? And we say, oooh, I caught your excitement. I can feel it! Well, that’s what that is. We can and do catch each other’s feelings. What if we just ran with that, instead of all the commiseration?
All I had to do was make a decision. That’s the first step toward change. And yes, there’s action involved. Now that I’ve decided to stop complaining and accept what life is offering, I’ve set changes into motion. I’ve just told you all about it. Writing it down is my commitment to that attitude shift. Next step, move onward and upward toward wherever my intuition leads me.
Laughter and dance seem to help me get motivated, loosen up my body, mind, and spirit, and shift my energy into a place that makes way more sense. I’m typing relentlessly, getting a major rush of inspiration, all because of a sweet little book that promised me that my life would change if I stayed grateful and talked about it.
That’s what I want to do for people. I want my writing to inspire others to spread the message about what we’re here to do. Let’s party! Let’s enjoy our lives. Sometimes I try to fight it, but that’s ok. Life gives me all kids of opportunities to shine. Tonight, I decided to let myself relax and enjoy the ride.
Can you feel the magic?
