Affirmation, Gratitude and My Menstrual Cycle

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, delight in making every task I undertake a joy filled experience. I have decided to enjoy taking out the trash as well as eating Coconut Bliss Ice Cream. I am thrilled when I get to do the laundry as I have a washing machine and every since I saw the ladies doing their wash in a cement tub in the town square I have loved doing laundry with my washing machine. I am thrive when I apply myself to tasks with a cheery attitude and enthusiastic work ethic. I was created to serve and be served as were you. Thank you for being of service to yourself and your life. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face. I Love You.  :~)

Today I am grateful for my ability to be thankful for my period, as since I incarnated as a lady, it means throughout my adult life I get to have a stomach ache once a month, which cleanses my entire being, for the successful weekend we had selling Robert Cerins Original Earrings at The Old School House in Quailcum, BC and Parlsville, BC at the Sand Castle Festival and we met a lovely lady at the festival in Quailcum, that invited us to spend the night at her home a short walk from the beach, where we shared dinner, breakfast, garden walks, inspiring conversations and heart felt connections. Thank you for being here to inspire me to write. Thank you for listening to your heart. I Love You.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Local Food

Today’s Affirmation: I, Stephanie, get to choose today to see the good in everyone I meet. I witness each person I connect with as perfect where they are and do my best to learn from them all they have to teach. I live to share love with everyone I meet, as that is what brings joy to my heart, sharing love, kindness and cooperation with the people who I connect with. My goal is to be a generator of joy, a dynamo of delight and a author of gratitude. I am the only person who get to choose what I think about, so today I think thoughts of abundance, I vibrate with faith, I offer thanks for all that comes through my door and I embrace change as an adventurer so that all my stages of my life are filled with wonder. I am caring for my mental, physical and spiritual health today by being calm. Thank you for finding your calm spot today. Thank you for sharing your emotions in your own perfect way.  :~)

Today I am grateful for getting gifted with some yummy salmon from some friends of ours that went fishing last weekend, then they shared their abundance with us and we took the salmon to two different dinner parties, for going to pick up our food from Alderlea Farm and getting a bunch of extra zucchini, as getting our food from a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is fun, as it is like getting a gift of food every week and for getting to receive a massage today from the wonderful and amazing Kyla Mortil, as she helps me continue on my path of healing since the accident, if you need a great massage connect with Kyla. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. Thank you for your commitment to being happy. I Love You. :~)

Affirmations, Gratitude and Support

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) get to decide today what kind of attitude I shall have. So I take a moment and think what is most important to me today? My answer is, to be happy! How do I best accomplish this task? I think happy constructive thoughts that inspire in my heart a sense of hopefulness. I spend time thinking of all the people who have helped me, allowed me to help them and to appreciate the sun, as well as the rain. I embrace the events of this day as if I had planned out what ever happens. I am gentle with myself and the people I love as I trust we are all right where we are supposed to be for our souls highest growth. I practice being patient, kind, generous, accepting and funny, so that the people I meet will feel lighter after hanging with me. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for sharing your light in your own perfect way. I Love You.  :~)

I am worthy, I am abundant and I am whole. Thank you for bringing joy to my life. Thank you for inspiring me to love. I Love You.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and My Voice

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, feel connected to myself when I listen to my still small voice that reminds me daily that I must receive in order to be able to give. Just as I must water a garden, pull the weeds and add the proper nutrients to the soil to increase that chance of an abundant harvest, I choose to nourish my own soul with a whole foods diet, meditation, friendship, writing, serving and connecting with the people I meet as if they are old friends. I am nourished by the hearts of everyone I meet and I am enriched by the stories that they gift me with through through their tone of voice, vibration of heart and the look in their eyes. I am blessed to be alive. I am safe. Thank you for the time you were here today. Thank you for caring for your loving self. I Respect You.  :~)

Today I am grateful for learning how to live from a place of gratitude for everything, as my life’s goal is to be happy, for being open to seeing my faults as well as my strengths, to take responsibility for my actions, willing to learn from my mistakes, as well as my successes and to spend time in meditation focusing on the largest part of me, my spiritual self, my infinite self, my energy body, my heart, that allows my earthly journey to be connected to the source of all life. Thank you for the time you were here today. Thank you for caring for your loving self. I Respect You.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Being Supportive

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, choose today to focus on how I can effect change in my life by being kind to everyone I meet today. First I practice being kind and gentle with me. When I create a mess, I then say job security and it turns my mood around. When I make a mistake or take a wrong turn, I show myself a little concern, by making the best of of it all, do I learn. I embrace my humanness as well as my spiritualness so that I feel complete. I am blessed to get to do the dance of life in a human body that has free will. Today I choose to be kind. I thrive when I live in a state of acceptance of all that is. I accept each person as perfect just the way they are, which allows me to be who I am. A metaphysical being having a physical experience, which make sense as to why I am confused sometimes.  :~) Thank you for posting your thoughts, feelings and musings here. I Love You.  :~)

Today I am grateful for being able to be a supportive friend, who has cultivated some of the best women in my life, we are growing together, supporting each other with kindness and acceptance, for learning about my health through dealing with an infection that seems to be enjoying being in my body, so last night I slept with a castor oil pack on my face to draw out the infection and for knowing when to ask the real doctors of my community for help as I have resorted to taking an antibiotic to heal the infection that was making me aware of my need for self care. Thank you for being in my life. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. I Love You.  :~)
