Affirmation, Gratitude and Halloween

Today’s Affirmation; I, have a chance today to approve of me. I spend this day encouraging myself by speaking words that create in my heart a feeling of courage. I look into my favourite mirror so that I can see deep into my eyes and say “I Love Me. I am valuable. I am beautiful. I am kind. I am funny. I am an asset to my community. I am a good friend. I am a good listener. I am helpful. I am necessary just like the sunshine. I am the most important person I need to impress. After encouraging myself by looking in the mirror my heart feels full. I have the power to speak kindly to me today. Thank you for being kind to you today. Thank you for being here with me today. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Approving of myself is the best gift I can give myself.

Today I am grateful for finding all the paint I need to finish up fixing up the home we are living in right in the shed in the backyard, it is a nice light blue colour too, so no money out of my pocket and using up old paint from 2012 that is being used up instead of being thrown out, for finding this wonderful Halloween Costume in the home I am cleaning, what a great gift from my Halloween Angels and for the beautiful sunny days we are having right now which is helpful as I am washing the outside windows of the home we are staying in today, so they will sparkle.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for enjoying the small gifts the Universe gives you today. Thank you for spending a bit of your precious time with me. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and #Rocking Menopause!

Today’s Affirmation; I, practice listening to my body today. I nurture my body with whole foods prepared with love! I am worthy!
Today I am grateful for having the last four nights where I slept for eight or more hours all because I am eating only fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and gelatin, with my treat being a few organic almonds and one square of rich dark organic chocolate a day, #rockingmenopause, for the bonus of giving up dairy, which clears up any bumps or eczema that I have left, after having a few pieces of bread in the last few months and for trusting that the reactions, issues or problems my body is having is just a way my body is communicating what it needs to function in top form.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for listening to your body and giving your body what it needs. Thank you for joining me here today. I Love YOU! ❤ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude & Responding

Today’s Affirmation; I, give myself a chance today to rethink how I respond to the events of my life. My responses to the things that happen every day are what make my life worth living. So today I respond with forethought. I taste my words before I speak them to make sure they are sweet. I want my words to bring comfort to all who hear them. I exercise my emotional muscles so that I am patient in all trying situations. I get to choose how I respond, which is a gift I give myself and everyone in my life. The better I get at responding to the events of the day, instead of reacting to the events of my day, the more confidence I feel filling every cell of my body. I respond with kindness and all is well. Thank you for responding to the events of your life with a kind heart. Thank you for sharing a bit of your day with me. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Travel

Today’s Affirmation; I,_________, (insert my name here if I like) choose today to nourish my being with organic food with the best nutritional content. So today I shall source out the best places to buy nutritious food so that my body has the best chance of thriving. Farmers markets provide local produce in season, that is fresh and ready to strengthen my bones. In many towns there are Grocery Stores that stock their shelves with the highest quality food available to nurture our bones. I have decided that I am worth the extra money organic food costs. I invest in my future health with healthy food, because I am what I eat. Thank you for nourishing your bones with healthy food. Thank you for investing in your health. I Love YOU. :~)

This is two different health food stores we have stopped in so far. Whole Foods by Taylor Way in Vancouver and Olives Health food store in Function Junction just outside Whistler, BC. :~)
