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 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.
Thank you for being present to your words today. Thank you for being here. I Love YOU! :~)

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! :~)

Today I am grateful for waking up at 4:30 this morning, because I trust that the most important action it is possible for me to take, is to be thankful for everything, for getting 5,000 new earring cards so that we can supply the 40 stores that sell Robert Cerins Original Earrings with new stock and for getting to dream about how I want my future to be, as my imagination is my friend and ally in co-creating my success in my personal and business relationships. Thank you for finding aspects of your life to be grateful for. Thank you for being kind to yourself today. I Love You. ❤ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and The Reticular Activating System

Vlog #73 Gratitude, Affirmation and The Reticular Activating System stimulate a response of gratitude and explores how to prime our Reticular Activating System.

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to guide your Reticular Activating System) choose to invest time training my Reticular Activating System by focusing on positive aspects of my life. When I was preparing for the Canadian Citizenship test, part of the training for me, was to keep reminding myself that taking tests is one of my strong suits, reinforcing the idea with the hopes of priming my Reticular Activating System so it would help me to pass the test. It seems to have worked since I got 19 right out of 20 on the test, passing with flying colours. What is a Reticular Activating System you ask? It is the part of our brain stem that filters out what is important to us. The best way to orient my Reticular Activating System is by influencing my mind with constructive thoughts. The more I focus on the parts of my life that bring me joy the more joy my Reticular Activating System finds for me to notice, embrace and enjoy. Thank you for joining my in creating joy in our world. Thank you for priming your Reticular Activating System to notice the Love in your life. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for a sunny dry day to set up our booth for the Duncan Farmers Market, we had a great spot right in the Duncan City Square, saw lots of friends, sold a few pairs of earrings and enjoyed the man who plays the accordion, for the many remedies that are available to cure the hot flashes and evening adventures into sleep deprivation, it will be my pleasure to announce with glee when I find the remedy that works for me, LOL LOL LOL and for the feedback it was my delight to receive, that when I connected the amazing Chip Nary from Happy Zak’s Handyman Service with Daphne a new friend, I made at the Duncan Farmers Market, who needs a bunch of help with her home, so when I talked to her today it was awesome to hear Daphne rave about how perfect Chip Nary was to help her with her home repair projects. My heart sings when I connect people who help each other. What makes your heart sing? Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for exploring an adventure in gratitude today. I Love YOU.   :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude & Problems

Vlog #70 Gratitude, Affirmation and Problems is about loving our problems and being grateful for snow and clean kitchens. May you be cheered up by my vlog. I Love YOU. :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you are willing to love your problems) am willing to look at the situations that cause me stress and say thank you to the Universe that I have the perfect problems for me. The more I appreciate the mishaps the easier it is for me to find solutions that are beneficial to everyone involved. As I grow emotionally intelligent it gets easier and easier to enjoy my perfect complications. My motto is to be grateful for everything because the best vegetables and fruits need a little rotting compost, poop and water in order to thrive. So today I rejoice for all the dung in my life and my body creates oxytocin to enable me to thrive. Thank you for stopping by for a bit of a cheering up. Thank you for enjoying the poop in your life. I Love YOU.    :~)

I love the ups and downs of life. :~)

Today I am grateful for my new routine of doing the dishes when ever there are dirty dishes in the sink, as it only takes a few minutes to wash one meals dishes and when I get up in the morning I have a clean kitchen, woo hoo, (I am starting to think of myself as a person with a clean kitchen, Gratitude Dance) for detaching my thoughts about what sleep is supposed to be like, being open to explore my new sleep patterns with the heart of an arctic adventurer, entertaining myself in the wee morning hours as if that is exactly what I want to be doing and for the fact that when I went out to feed and water the horse this morning that the hose that brings water to the horse was thawed out even though it was laying under 8 inches of snow, which seems like a miracle as the snow on the top is frozen and crunchy. What are you grateful for today? Thank you for your precious time. I Love YOU. :~)
