Affirmation, Gratitude and Supporting Us

Today’s Affirmation; I, am starting to understand that my thoughts are things. My thoughts are the seeds to my emotions and actions. When I think thoughts that cause me to feel happy I get happy wrinkles. The more happy thoughts I think, the happier the wrinkles on my face get. I make thinking about my thoughts a priority today. I choose my thoughts carefully as my thoughts are creating my wrinkles. I choose to think that I am beautiful. I spending time thinking about the parts of my loved ones that I enjoy. I visualize my needs being met easily and my entire body relaxes and so do my wrinkles. My thoughts can be directed by me. I invest time thinking constructive thoughts and I feel safe. Thank you for guiding your mind to think joyful thoughts. Thank you for spending a bit of your day with me. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for how the Happiness Enhancing Gathering went last night, everyone that was there said they would be back again next week, Gratitude Dance, we did some deep breathing, we shared from our hearts, we created heart centered personal connections and I wrote a personalized affirmation for each Happiness Enhancer
(a Happiness Enhancer is someone who is choosing to be present to their emotions and has a desire to direct their emotions in positive ways) that attended. We had rooibos tea and Kettle Chips, good conversations and a few laughs.
For getting the kitchen in the home we are living in a bit more organized so that when I walk in the kitchen now, it is sounding hollow or empty and looking organized almost zen, LOL,
And for how excited and alive I felt after the gathering last night we got home at 10:00pm my bed time and I was so energized that I was awake until 11:30 or so with lots of energy. I am still feeling the tingle this morning.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for spending some of your precious time with me today. Thank you for finding out what makes you tingly in life. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Peace

Today’s Affirmation; I, shall do my best to keep my thoughts, feelings and spirit in a calm and peaceful state today. I practice the art of deep breathing to make it possible for me to be present and peaceful in the world. Each moment is an opportunity for me to create a good story about the situation I am in. When I think good thoughts, I feel safer, stronger and more capable. By being present to my thoughts and emotions I am able to be accepting of the behaviour of the people in the world with me. I am a stand for peace because I am peaceful. Thank you for being peaceful today! Thank you for being here on earth with me today. I Love YOU! :~)

For making amends to my mom yesterday on Skype as when I was a teenager my dad died when I was 15 and a half, after that I did what ever I wanted, then there was the time I did not talk to my mom for about 3 to 4 years, so I just told her I was sorry I added to her pile of pain, as my mom has lots of pain in her life, she did not need mine too and that I wished I had done better, she started crying and said thank you and blamed my x-husband and I said that at the end of the day I am responsible for my actions, it was soothing to my core to make amends to my mom.
And for getting to witness my body get stronger when I exercise, observing how a few months ago I could hardly do a few of the exercises that I am now doing reps of 15 and 20 of each one.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for joining me in being grateful today! Thank you for making amends to someone you love. I Love YOU! :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Forethought

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to listen to my words before I speak them) have a chance today to speak with compassion. Each time I speak, I have an opportunity to increase the well being in my world. When I speak with forethought, I have an option listen to how my words will sound in my head, before I speak them. At the times I accomplish thinking before I speak, my needs get met with ease and the conversations in my life are pleasing. I hone my speaking skills each time I speak with an intention of being understanding. I allow my emotions to flow through me easily during the conversations in my life. I am easy to talk to. I am a cherished child of the Universe and the Universe loves when I think before I speak.

Today I am grateful for going to the Salvation Army Thrift Store in Duncan, BC yesterday to drop off some clothes and stuffed animals, when I found a brand new Nikken KenkoPillow for $4.95 which is a pillow I have slept on since 1994 (I fell in the bathtub in 1986 and my neck hurt almost everyday until I found this pillow) and when I joyously found one to buy in the last year it cost me about $180.00, Woo Hoo, for receiving a gift from the lovely Wendy Sehn of some 4 inch wide razor blades for my window washing scraper, as I have not been able to find any in Canada, on her trip to Bend, Oregon she found a package and brought them home for me, which created in me a feeling of being cared about and for electric baseboard heating as all I have to do to be warm is to walk over to the wall and turn a knob, oh and pay the electricity bill, so I am grateful for my electricity bill too. LOL LOL LOL! What are you grateful for today? Thank you for spending some time being grateful today. I Love YOU! :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Sleep

Today’s Affirmation, I, am going to practice compassionate listening as best I can today. Even if there is no one else around I can practice listening to my thoughts. The better I can listen to my thoughts the better I will be able to listen to the words of the people I meet.

I give myself and others the gift of compassionate listening today. I am going to stay focused on what the person in front of me is saying. I allow myself to listen with my entire being. When I listen to the person in front of me I feel connected to my heart as well as feeling connected to the other person’s heart. I am a trusted child of Creation. Thank you for listening to your thoughts today. Thank you for sharing your precious time with me. I Love You. ❤ :~)
