Affirmation, Gratitude and #Rocking Menopause!

Today’s Affirmation; I, practice listening to my body today. I nurture my body with whole foods prepared with love! I am worthy!
Today I am grateful for having the last four nights where I slept for eight or more hours all because I am eating only fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and gelatin, with my treat being a few organic almonds and one square of rich dark organic chocolate a day, #rockingmenopause, for the bonus of giving up dairy, which clears up any bumps or eczema that I have left, after having a few pieces of bread in the last few months and for trusting that the reactions, issues or problems my body is having is just a way my body is communicating what it needs to function in top form.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for listening to your body and giving your body what it needs. Thank you for joining me here today. 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. :~)

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.

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. ❤ :~)
