Affirmation, Gratitude and Lymphatic Massage

Today’s Affirmation; I, embrace all my emotions as my friend. Today I befriend my anger and resentment. When I listen to my angry and resentful feelings it nourishes my heart. My anger is there to tell me when my boundaries are being crossed. When I feel angry or resentful I pay attention to what I am angry or resentful about. I must care for me if I want to care for others, so that I am giving from a place for fullness. My angry emotions only want to protect me from some perceived trouble. I value all my emotions and I feel calmer. I am worthy. I am lovable. Thank you for spending a bit of your day with me. Thank you for bravely loving all your valuable emotions. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

I love all my emotions. I love to be happy and at times when I am not grounded I am upset. So I do my best to love the upset as much as the joy. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for the group Cowichan Healing Arts as yesterday when I went to the page by accident a lady was asking for a Lymphathic Drainage Massage which I know how to do, so I wrote under her post, I would love to be of service to you, then she called made an appointment, we met today, she just left feeling relaxed, Gratitude Dance for Social Media, for trusting that I am right where I am supposed to be even when that place is in between homes and for allowing myself to believe that I am valuable, important and lovable.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for being here on earth with me today. Thank you for enjoying yourself today. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to hear the sea lions barking down in Cowichan Bay from the home that I am staying in right now, for getting two stories finished and sent in to the CBC Short Story Contest, https://cbcliteraryprizes.submittable.com/submit/89954/2018-cbc-short-story-prize one is called “First Dance, First Kiss…” and the second one is named “The Wait Is Over” Gratitude Dance, it feel good to be following my dream of being a published author and for enjoying the chocolate I ate yesterday so that when the chocolate kept me up in the middle of the night last night, laying there staying at the ceiling remembering how good the chocolate tasted made it almost worth the sleep I did not get last night. LOL LOL LOL

Affirmation, Gratitude and Halloween

Today’s Affirmation; I, have a chance today to approve of me. I spend this day encouraging myself by speaking words that create in my heart a feeling of courage. I look into my favourite mirror so that I can see deep into my eyes and say “I Love Me. I am valuable. I am beautiful. I am kind. I am funny. I am an asset to my community. I am a good friend. I am a good listener. I am helpful. I am necessary just like the sunshine. I am the most important person I need to impress. After encouraging myself by looking in the mirror my heart feels full. I have the power to speak kindly to me today. Thank you for being kind to you today. Thank you for being here with me today. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Approving of myself is the best gift I can give myself.

Today I am grateful for finding all the paint I need to finish up fixing up the home we are living in right in the shed in the backyard, it is a nice light blue colour too, so no money out of my pocket and using up old paint from 2012 that is being used up instead of being thrown out, for finding this wonderful Halloween Costume in the home I am cleaning, what a great gift from my Halloween Angels and for the beautiful sunny days we are having right now which is helpful as I am washing the outside windows of the home we are staying in today, so they will sparkle.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for enjoying the small gifts the Universe gives you today. Thank you for spending a bit of your precious time with me. 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. :~)

It is within my power to increase my self worth, my self esteem and my self confidence with each task I complete. I am a useful child of the Universe and the Universe is excited for me when I keep my word to me. Thank you for keeping your word to yourself. Thank you for listening to your wise heart. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)
