Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to think about the words I speak) have an opportunity today to think about the words that spill from my lips today. My words can heal the ones I love when I speak with forethought. My words are powerful when I speak from my heart.

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 Creating Happiness

Vlog #72 Gratitude, Affirmation and Creating Happiness reminds us that we can create happiness with our amazing thoughts and emotions. My hope is to help you be grateful by sharing what there is to be grateful for in my life today. :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you are ready to create your happiness) am able to change my state of mind by changing what I focus on. My goal today is to pay attention to all that goes well. Every situation is a chance for me to be on alert for all the good that is happening in each moment. When I accomplish any small task I congratulate myself for a job well done. The times it is my priority to concentrate on my actions, responses, words and reactions are the times I feel centred. Listening to my inner voice and emotions helps me stay connected to my intuition which is another way I create my happiness, by listening to me. The more I pay attention to my moods, attitude and responses the happier I feel because my heart, mind and spirit are cooperating. Thank you for the moments you joined me here today. Thank you for staying focused on the good in your life. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for staying home today as it is snowing like crazy out right now and we already had more than 14.5 inches, it is a winter wonder land outside my window right now, for getting out of the driveway yesterday, with the help of a nice man and his tractor as we had dug our car out, started out the driveway, stopped to dig out the entrance and could not get our car rolling again, so the man with the tractor digging us out a parking space so we did not have to use our driveway anymore as the weather man promised more snow, he stopped shoveling the entrance of the driveway, to pull our car out with his tractor so we were able to get to the store to stock up with food and water and for how yummy chicory is so that I can make myself yummy hot beverages that soothe my spirit on cold days. Thank you for spending a few moments with me today. Thank you for valuing 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. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Heart

Vlog #69 invites us to exude love always and I share an example of what I am grateful for today.

 

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to exude love always) exercise my heart by being lovingly patient today. Instead of exercising my heart physically today, my goal is to exert my heart by being loving in all situations. I take the situations that arise in my life, that cause me to feel stressed and turn my instant frustrated reaction, into a thought out plan for emitting compassion, patience, friendliness, forgiveness and faith. It is within my power to think before I act or speak, so that my words will be kind first and foremost. I feel empowered when I temper my emotions with my compassionate heart, increasing my self confidence, as with much practice I train myself to be composed. I radiate love from the every cell of my being and I feel safe. Thank you for the bit of time you spent here with me. Thank you for emitting self confidence and kindness. I Love YOU. :~)

This is my goal daily. :~)

Today I am grateful for my favourite fried egg pan which is a low sided cast iron skillet, that is perfectly seasoned, is only used for fried eggs, allowing an exquisitely fried egg to be had each and every time, for learning the trick to keeping my cast iron skillet in impeccable shape, the cleaning technique I apply is to only use a clean cloth with no soap and hot water, just as a grill is cleaned in a professional kitchen there is no soap used, I put a bit of water in the pan, turn the burner on wait a few minutes until the hot water has loosened the food, wipe the pan dry, then oil the pan until it is sparkly clean ready to go again and for how the smell of bacon fills the house with its tantalizing aroma, creating in my heart a feeling of comfort, family and holidays. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for allowing your heart to be filled with gratitude today. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Ladies Night

Vlog #46 reflects the words written in this blog.  May hearing my passion for self love, encouragement and laughter allow you to look inside for your inner happiness.

Today’s Affirmation; I, _______, (insert your name here if you need encouragement) am willing to believe that I am able to effect my life by how I perceive the events of my life. Today I pretend that I am able to witness my emotions as if they are the emotions of my best friend. When I am able to take a step back from my emotions by inhaling and exhaling at the times I feel my stomach tighten, my jaw clench or my frustration level rise, it allows me to calm my emotional self, look at my feelings with an open mind and a heart encouraging me to seek solutions. The more time I spend listening to my emotions, the more my emotions will be able to guide me, through the ups and downs of life with grace.  My emotional well being is in my capable hands and I promise me to honour, accept and embrace all my emotions as my trusted friends. Thank you for stopping by to connect to your courage today. Thank you for listening to your wise emotional self. I Love YOU.   :~)

for https://youtu.be/85dHH7iQPLk
Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have an opportunity to improve myself every day by thinking thoughts that instill in my mind, body and spirit that I am enough. It is within my power to encourage my heart with words that soothe my savage beast. Phrases that I repeat when I am feeling out of sorts are; Every cell of my body is running over with love. My earthly journey is worth enjoying. It is my choice to be ok with how everyone else chooses to live. I am enough even while I am sleeping. Some Universal Energy started my heart to beat and the heart of every other soul on this planet so I trust that my journey is taking me to the perfect places for my souls highest growth and everyone else is also on their perfect soul path.

Today I am grateful for youtube as when I need to learn a new back strengthening exercise my fingers type in back strengthening exercises and then in a few seconds there before my eyes are many videos for me to help me to fortify my lower back and entire body, for the gift that Skype is as once a week it is my pleasure to get to see and hear my mom even though she is hundreds of miles away, it is like we are having a tea together across the kitchen table and for the wonderful time we had at the Charles Dickens Christmas Craft Fair in Courtenay, BC, where I cheered up people in my bright red swirly Christmas hat and Robert Cerins was dressed as Father Christmas once again putting smiles on the faces of the people who witnessed our antics. Thank you for bringing me cheer by being here. Thank you for caring for your body temple today. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)
 
Here is the video I learned a few new back exercises from.
