Affirmation, Gratitude and Forethought

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. I speak words that offer encouragement to myself and others, which invokes in my heart a feeling of compassion. As I cheer up the people in my life with my loving words I too am cheered up. Each time I open my mouth I have a chance to speak words that sooth the hearts of everyone who hears my voice. Thank you for thinking about the words you speak. Thank you for speaking kindly to your precious heart. 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. ❤ :~)

My imagination is my best friend.


Affirmation, Gratitude and Thinking

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) spend time today thinking about what I think and feel. When I listen to my thoughts and feelings my mind, body and spirit feel connected and empowered. I have a chance today to effect my future by guiding my thoughts and feelings with the wisdom of the many books I have studied since I was twelve years old when I asked myself the question “Why are my parents not happy we have everything, a home, a car, a truck, motorcycles, horses, a dog, a cat and a family of four?” Then I was blessed to read my first positive thinking book which inspired me to want to be the boss of my mind, whatever that meant? Now I know what being the boss of my mind means to me; when I am thinking a thought that brings me fear or uncertainty, I catch the fearful thoughts, give myself comfort by sharing all the reasons that the fear is probably just my ego wanting to protect me again, (like when someone is late and I feel they are dead, because my dad died in the blink of an eye when I was 15 years old, so now everyone just dies, that is what my ego is protecting me from all the time wanting to avoid the grief of my fathers transformation back to pure energy.) Then I replace the fearful thoughts with more productive healthy thoughts like; I am sure the person will be here any minute, I send the person blessings to have a safe trip, I visualize the person enjoying the drive and soon my heart relaxes and calmness spreads over me like a warm blanket. Thank you for being the boss of your mind. I Love You.  :~)

Thinking is an important part of all my days. ❤

Today I am grateful for having the best car mechanic as he changed one glow plug in our TDI Golf for $ 5.00 plus the cost of the part, then to top it off, he has his own 4 car junk yard and in one of the four cars there was an arm rest that our car needed (as it has been broke since we bought the car) and I got to barter for saurekraut for the arm rest and having him put it in, Gratitude Dance, for getting to sleep in my own bed last night for the first time in twelve days and my entire body needed the comfort of my perfect latex mattress, that holds my physique like a mother holding her new baby and for waking up in my own home, with the normal noises like the barn cat that scratches and scrapes the door each day like fingernails on a chalk board, the crickets singing and the horses whinnying as their breakfasts are delivered. Thank you for the moments you spent here today. Thank you for being grateful for something or everything today. I Love You.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Forethought

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am building my future body with the thoughts, feelings and responses that I have today. When I am able to respond with forethought, compassion and kindness my heart feels connected to life and lively. As I focus on what I can contribute to each situation, I feel empowered. My journey to being the best wife, friend, listener and writer is filled with opportunities for me to show myself that my heart is ever expanding when I respond to the situations in my life with acceptance and willingness. The more I witness myself being patient and understanding with others, the more I am able to be gentle with myself, to see myself as an innocent child here to love and be loved, the safer I feel. Thank you for loving yourself today. Thank you for being willing to witness your emotions today. I Love You.  :~)

Today I am grateful for spending time entering a bunch of art shows and musical festivals with Robert Cerins Original Art To Wear Earrings and Pendants, there is going to be more than 10 applications to fill out, for trusting that the best shows possible, will be the shows that select Robert’s hand painted jewelry to be a part of their events, so that I meet the perfect people to help me share the colourful jewelry my sweet husband creates and for becoming the best art promoter imaginable giving both Robert and I the best chance at “Cheering Up The Planet” which is what inspires the both of us. Thank you for thinking about what you are good at today. Thank you for sharing your passion today. I Love You.  :~)
