Affirmation, Gratitude and Compassionate Communication

I have a chance to appreciate me today. I choose to be gentle with myself as my day unfolds. I do a little gratitude dance after I clean the kitchen which creates in my heart a bit of joy. It is up to me to find the joy that lives in every moment. I nurture my curious nature. I am always busy discovering new ways to befriend myself and others. I allow myself to visualize meeting new people that are capable of inspiring me meet my goals. It is possible to create calm in chaos if my heart is centered on love. I am a generator of joy. I am a creator of calmness. I am a capable of creatively creating happiness in my heart with my smart brains and lovable heart. I am Love. Thank you for believing in your power to be a generator of Joy. Thank you for being here on earth with me today https://www.instagram.com/p/BfRZ02_n9wp/?taken-by=dekedafreke

I enjoy like a lot more when I spend as little time as possible hearing or thinking about what other people think about me. I go to the needs behind the thoughts. Then I'm in a different world.

Speaking Compassionately helps me stay connected to my heart and the hearts of everyone I meet.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Thinking

Today’s Affirmation; I, am blessed. It is within my power to make changes that improve my life. I can think before I act or speak so that I taste and feel my words before I speak them. I want my words to heal the people I love and have relationships with. It is important that when emotions run high that is when I really need to be present to what I am expressing. When I lose my temper it is important to apologize and do my best to make amends. I visualize love to fill each cell of my body which makes it easier to admit when I was upset. I make friends with all my emotions so that I feel safe. Thank you for listening to your emotions today. Thank you for being here on earth with me today. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for Susan Murray for sharing her home with us until we get to move into the condo we are renting in Duncan, BC for the winter, we get to move in on my Birthday Nov. 18th, for my ability to split fire wood, as Susan’s home is heated by a lovely wood stove, so I have been blessed to split wood for kindling and have gotten the pleasure of building fires in a wood stove once again, like when I was a child at home, I was the fire tender, and for getting to care for Susan’s two feline friends while she is away helping her family.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for being here on earth with me today. Thank you for being kind to yourself today. I Love YOU! ❤

Affirmation, Gratitude and Death

Today’s Affirmation; I, accept that one day hopefully far in the future I will choose to shed my physical body. Giving up my body is the most natural thing I could do. I befriend death so that I am able to live fully. I also accept that everyone I love is impermanent just as I am. I love the people in my life more openly because I live this day as if it is my last. I practice laughing for one day I will be cold and buried. I enjoy the taste of chocolate today as if it is the last chocolate I will ever savour. I enjoy the kisses of my lover in case this is our last embrace. I value every moment so that I feel alive. Thank you for doing what creates in you a feeling of delight. Thank you for sharing a bit of your day with me. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for having a sunny day to wash the windows in the home I am living in, so that the windows sparkle when the perspective buyers come to look at the house, for my ability to stay calm even when I make a mess, break something or when I get so involved in my writing that a couple of weeks ago when I was boiling water for tea, I boiled all the water out of the pan and the bottom of the pan was red hot, I just calmly, grabbed a hot pad, seized the handle of the pot and slid the pan over to a cool burner that the pan was nearest to and for practicing the art of patience everyday so that I am pleasant to deal with, easy going and fun to be around.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for doing your best to enjoy being calm today. I Love YOU. :~)
