Gratitude, Affirmation and Processing Life

Here is today’s Vlog #59 Gratitude, Affirmation and Processing Life about what I am grateful for to inspire you to be grateful and an affirmation for all humans willing to enjoy the process of life. :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to enjoy the process) will enjoy the process of being human today. I will relish my problems as the prefect problems for me, so that I can accomplish all I incarnated to do. Each new issue that causes me to feel challenged, allows me to dip into my well of resilience, discovering my commitment to enjoying the problem as a way of learning. Just as I sit here typing these words my body is flushing hot with the change that all ladies go through. So that is another way life changes and it is up to me to adjust, enjoy and embrace the redesign of my entire body once again, to take hold of the process of aging with an open heart and adventurous mind. Thank you for the moments you were here with me today. Thank you for enjoying the process of life you are in now. I Love YOU. :~)

Life is a process that the more I enjoy the easier the trip is. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to connect to a great friend who gave me wonderful news that she has not had a cigarette since last Tuesday, Gratitude Dance, I remember when I quit smoking for my 25th birthday present to me and instead of buying cigarettes for a reward for a job well done, I saved the $ I used from buying smokes and got myself other gifts like a gold necklace or anklet to reward myself, for having my breakfast created for me by my talented chef husband Robert Cerins our breakfast of homemade baked scalloped potatoes and local chicken wings was fabulous, and for creating habits that ensure I shall be healthy as long as possible, by changing my taste buds as my bodies needs change, once I drank coffee with cream and sugar and now I enjoy a hot drink made of roasted chicory, barley and rye with organic vanilla and unsweetened cocount milk. Thank you for taking charge of your taste buds today. Thank you for joining me in delight today. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Serene

May you feel more joyful or silly at the end of my vlog. ❤ :~) Here is today Vlog #58

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to practice calmness) am willing to practice being calm today when ever I feel someone has wronged me in any way. Instead of being frustrated today about how other people act or treat me, I will put myself in their shoes to feel why they are responding to me the way they are. It is within my power to bring the odds in my favor in every relationship I have, by responding in a calm manner in all situations. I can just keep asking kindly to have my needs met and then one day the person I have been asking the request of seems to magically meet my need in spades because I calmly just kept expressing my need and expecting them to do the right thing and I feel elated because I held the vision that the person would meet my need and they did. Being calm keeps me connected to my heart and the heart of everyone I meet. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for being calm today. I Love YOU. :~)

I feel serene when I focus on calmness.

Today I am grateful for my love of nourishing my body temple with whole organic food, just a few minutes ago I spent about one and a half hours deboning two chickens after boiling them for about 8 hours or more to get all the collagen to release from the bones of the chicken, to sustain my bones and cartilage, for living the truth that food is my medicine, by witnessing the reactions my body has to the food I consume, my body communicates what it needs, my body loves protein, vegetables, fruit, whole organic foods grown in a sustainable way and for getting to connect with my mom as it is Sunday and we get to Skype on Sundays, which means I live in the time of the Jetsens and some day soon cars will fly. Thank you for nourishing your body temple with whole local food. Thank you for your time. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and L-Lysine

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you are open to enjoy the small stuff), have decided that today I shall enjoy all that I do today, as if I was a small child exploring the world. I will witness the pile of dirty dishes, as if they are the dishes of my best friend, so that when I approach the sink it is with the excitement of lending a hand to a sacred friend and the dishes become more fun to do. My magic mind has the ability to make everything fun. When I exercise my mind by creating joy in the moment my entire body relaxes. I allow myself to pretend that I love to cook as if I was the highest paid chef in the land and it is easier to get into the kitchen, pick up a knife and create a salad that nourishes my body, mind and visual senses. The more I play in the kitchen the happier I feel. Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for playing in your kitchen today. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting taken out to lunch yesterday by my friend Sarah Wilson, it was wonderful to catch up, be spoiled and eat at Sai Thai in Duncan the Tom Kha Gai was as fabulous as the company, for Lysine as it has helped me get over my cold sore really fast by taking two Lysine in the morning and in the night and the cold sore was gone in less than a week instead of two weeks with much less swelling and discomfort and for getting to make a bunch of Holiday Cookies for my mom and step-dad since they have everything it feels like that is the best thing I can send homemade organic cookies, my home smells great while I bake the cookies and my mom’s face is joyful when she describes herself eating them. (I do not even taste them as wheat gives me eczema, LOL LOL LOL). Thank you for the moments you spent here with me today. Thank you for seeking out things to be grateful for in your life today. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Body Love

Vlog #49 Affirmation Gratitude and Joy Ride

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you are willing to love your body) have been blessed with a human body that carries around my powerful spiritual self. Having a Human body is my chance to get to savour, taste, touch, smell, see or hear, to get the opportunity to experience the many sensations my body is capable of, which is why I incarnated. Being on earth where everyday is an opportunity to love myself and everyone else, a little more, is a blessing. I have a responsibility to my spirit to take actions that allow me to grow into my most caring, compassionate self. The more I open my heart to the possibility that I matter, that my thoughts are my assets and my feelings are my allies, the more my intuition speaks loud enough so that I am able to make the bold positive moves, creating the self expression, only possible through belief in myself. I am worthy of my dreams. It is up to me to give myself the gift that is self confidence. Thank you for stopping by to connect in self appreciation. Thank you for believing in yourself. :~)

I love the image I found on this blog. https://delafro.com/…/journey-to-self-love-with-self-care-…/

Today I am grateful for having a bright sunny day after days and days of gray skies, this morning the ground was all covered with diamonds of frost sparkling in the sunshine to provide a stunning morning visual delight, for getting to be a part of Winterfest Craft Fair https://www.facebook.com/WinterFest-Craft-Fair-31756127161…/, where we reconnected with vendors we know and love, entertained the crowd with our holiday inspired outfits and marketed Hand Painted Original Art To Wear created by Robert Cerins and for having a day of rest today where I am making a few earrings, hanging out, eating my own homemade chicken soup and making sure I am gentle with me. Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me. Thank you for finding something to be grateful for today. I Love YOU!   :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Enjoying

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you have decided to enjoy this day) have a chance today to enjoy each event of my day as if it was as fun as being on a vacation at the beach. When I am dancing with the broom as I sweep the floor, my mind visualizes how yummy it feels to see a clean floor. I have an opportunity today to enjoy washing the bathroom as much as I enjoy taking a bath. Each action that I am able to take with an attitude of gratitude fills my heart with comfort. When I am able to sing while I am productive my life feels joyful. It is up to me to make as many joyful moments as possible in my life as I am the only person who decides what is joyful for me. The more I am able to create a vibration of contentment coming from my heart the easier everything I do is. Thank you for being here on earth with me today. I Love You.   :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am willing to give up being guilty. It feels as if there is a part of me that has in the past needed to be guilty, starting this day forward, when ever I catch myself being guilty I will feel through is this just a habitual feeling from my inner child or is this situation really call for me to be guilty? From this day forward I give myself permission to take care of me from a place of innocence, because it is up to me and me alone to take care of my heart first, then I draw to me people who are capable of caring for themselves and others. I am a Spiritual Being having a Mortal Experience so it is vital that I care for my body temple on a daily basis. I matter. I practice self compassion so that I am a capable of being understanding when my ears hear the stories of the people in my life. I am willing to accept that deep in my core I am innocent. Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for believing in yourself. I Love YOU. :~)

Praying for my innocence to be restored has been helpful on the journey to healing my heart of grief. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to make Pirags, Cinnamon Buns, and Caraway Buns yesterday with the tutelage of Robert Cerins’ parents Bob and Vija, as a life long friend of Robert’s named James wanted to learn how to make the pirags, so I got Robert’s parents to agree to advise us and I made the pirags with the help of James, Bob, Vija, Jacque, and even Robert Cerins rolled out a bit of dough, it was a terrific day, for getting to eat the food that I helped to create yesterday, the crispy bacony flavour of the Pirags, the yummy cinnamon buns (even though the wheat usually causes me to have eczema, the tastes, texture and tummy satisfaction was worth what ever eczema may appear) and for getting more than 100 images ready to go on to Robert Cerins web site http://www.robertcerins.com/ so that for the 3rd Annniversary of Robert Cerins Original Earrings we will be selling a great selection of Robert’s hand painted earrings online which is a dream come true. Thank you for being a part of my day today. Thank you for using your creative talent wisely. I Love YOU.  :~)
