Affirmation, Gratitude & Persistence

Vlog #64 is about the fun of persistence, being grateful for an internet piano learning program and for momentum.

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to enjoy being persistent) am willing to embrace being persistent today in an aspect of my life where I have been procrastinating. When I am incorporating a new habit into my life, whether it be exercising, eating well or committing to my work, when I follow my own set routine, I get into a groove of fulfilling my schedule of good habits which creates momentum, that in turn inspires me to get up again the next day to start my set routine. My inner cheer leader inspires me to exercise and I feel rejuvenated as I have momentum from the days past where I did exercise that gives me courage to continue on. It is easier to sustain my health regiment when I am focused on listening to my strengths. Thank you for being present today. Thank you for being persistent in all you care about today. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for discovering a web site that is devoted to teaching the piano called Piano Marvel there is a free app that allows my electric grand piano to be plugged into my mac laptop so now the Piano Marvel app records how long I practice, has lots of sheet music, has sight reading tests, has a free account option that really is allowing me to improve my piano playing for free and only cost $ 99.99 a year to sign up for the most expensive package, (I am loving practicing!), for the way the Yamaha Piano company made the jack in the back of my piano, just like a printer cable so I did not even need to purchase a new cable. in order to make the connection between computer and piano function, Hooray! and for drinking a new tea made of sage, alfalfa, vitex, red clover, red raspberry and a touch of licorice with the hope that the sage, vitex and other ingredients will encourage my entire body to cool down in the night as I sleep. I feel the tea is helping because I have drank the tea for the last two days and last night I slept 8 hours with only about one and a half hours being awake during the night. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for courageously discovering something to be grateful for today. I Love You. :~)

Gratitude and An Affirmation To Laugh At Me

Today Vlog #57

Today I am grateful for improving Robert Cerins web site a page at a time here is the first improved page… it has been a real asset for us that I am able to create web sites, for my love of learning, reading and ever curious nature that keeps me feeling interested in new things and allows me the courage to complete the tasks as varied as help with building a home, or help work on a car or help in the kitchen after a friends dinner party or whatever I have agreed to do and for all the authors who have recorded their experiences, share their earthly journey for me to learn from and inspire me with their words. What are you grateful for today? Thank you for the moments you were here with me today. Thank you for embracing your curious nature. I Love YOU! :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you are willing to laugh at yourself) am willing to take myself lightly today. Whatever happens this day I will pretend that it is exactly, what I wanted to have happen. I shall practice instant acceptance so every experience is a wanted experience. In that past I have resisted reality, causing my heart much pain. So today I take the spiritual path of acceptance to see where that leads me. When I am running behind in my day, I stop for a moment and think with a light heart, look at what an optimist I am, thinking I can get 3 hours worth of stuff done in 1 hour and giggle at myself, it is up to me to be gentle with me. To admit to myself my slight imperfections so that when I stumble in my day, by over committing, feeling like I can build Rome in a day, to step back and think about how much I can really get done in the amount of time there is, so that I am more realistic in my plans and feel more light hearted at the end of the day. Then when I have found I have not done that once again and have 10 hours of stuff to do in 2 hours to have a great laugh at my folly and enjoy the optimistic person that I am. Thank you for the precious time you spent with me today. Thank you for laughing at your self today. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Learning

Here is something new I am doing a vlog five days a week! I am grateful to get to post this video after two days of technical errors. What do you think. Love you lots. ❤
Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) get a chance today to use my time wisely. There are things I am choosing to do right now, that I have been wanting to do my whole life, like play the piano. I am now practicing on my Digital Piano in the morning in the hopes that by this time next year I may be able to play for you. When I take action by exercising, playing the piano or reading a book that inspires me to be more loving, my entire being feels excited, tingly and alive. When I direct myself to do what I really, really, want to do, I focus all my energy at the new task at hand, take a deep breath, leave Netflix OFF, embrace my endeavor with an open mind and heart, then be willing to make all the mistakes it takes, until I am the master of the new skill I am learning. Thank you for joining me for a dose of joy today. Thank you for learning something new today. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for having the best dentist on earth Dr. Dustin George as I had broken my temporary crown on Saturday afternoon eating home baked chicken wings at Robert Cerins‘ parents home, then when I got home there was an e-mail from Dustin George asking how my tooth was and I had to tell him I had wreaked his work and he made an appointment to meet me on Sunday Morning at 11:00am to replace my broken temporary crown with a new temporary crown until my gold crown is finished, for getting to make Latvian Rye bread for Robert’s parents as his mom’s shoulder hurts too much for her to make the bread anymore, making the bread made Robert’s dad Bob joyous as he has been eating that bread for 91 and a half years and for getting to be a part of the Nanaimo Professional Craft Fair…/… this weekend starting on Friday at noon on Nov. 4th, so I get to dress up this weekend as a holiday elf.

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Ferry Ride

Here is today’s Vlog # 32 I recorded today’s video while riding the ferry to Vancouver

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am going into a storm of grief today with an open heart that radiates compassion, empathy, love and acceptance. When I have a friend or loved one who is grieving I do my best to listen to their emotional pain with my entire being. My goal is to allow the person who is in deep grief to be heard, to hold space for the sorrow that they are emitting and to trust that the person is mourning in their own perfect way. My hope is that my whole heart can be present to their discomfort as a wise spiritual being that knows that death is a new beginning, a transformation back to pure possibilities and be a stand that grieving is good for the soul. Thank you for your precious time today. Thank you for allowing your heart the time it needs to grieve. I Love You. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to the Departure Bay Ferry at 8:00am on the dot, so that we would be on time for our reservation, as we had to be at the ferry booth to pay right on time by 8:00am or we would lose our reservation spot with no refund, for getting to go to West Vancouver this morning to support Robert Cerins life long friend Jack Mants as there is a memorial to celebrate and honour his Jack’s sister Carol, it is a blessing to provide solace for Jack and his family in their time of mourning and for getting to go to some of the stores we supply in Whistler, Ocean Park, Granville Island and maybe some new stores with Original Earrings in the hopes of restocking the stores shelves with a sparkly selection of Holiday Hand Painted Earrings. Thank you for being a part of my day today. Thank you for being kind to yourself first today. I Love YOU.   :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Being Patient

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) do my best to be patient today in all situations, relationships and with myself. When I am patient my heart beats evenly, allowing my entire body to feel relaxed. I have the power to be calm in almost all situations through my ability to deep breathe. At any time when my body feels irritated, my first instinct is to pay attention to the irritation, then with the curiosity of a child explore why my being is upset and then comfort my heart with reassuring words that encourage me to act in ways that help me thrive. In the times that I soothed my emotions first, then discussed the issue at hand in a calm manner, taking responsibility for my part, it is those times I am proud of how I have dealt with heart felt topics and had the outcomes my spirit longed for. During the times I emit peacefulness from my core are the times my life feels the safest. Thank you for joining me in joy today. Thank you for being patient with yourself today. I Love You.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Death

Here is the affirmation I wrote and what I am grateful for in the vlog format. May you find the joy the awaits you in your heart. Blessings,

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am rewiring my brain to embrace the idea and emotions around death. Since everyone is going to die including me, hopefully far in the future, inasmuch as I want to live to be the oldest person on the planet, it occurred to me, that other people in my life may pass away before me, so how I can actually enjoy the death of the people in my life? As I was a mess for at least a decade after my dad died when I was 15 years old, I would enjoy to shorten the grief cycle for the future deaths I will grieve. I want to be as excited when someone dies as when they were born since I have come understand that death is just a transformation back to pure energy. So today I welcome death as I would any earthly experience with an open mind and heart. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for bravely facing your fears about death. I Love You.  :~)

Meditating on death is a buddhist tradition that I am going to check out to see if the Buddhists have figured out a way to enjoy the grief of death. :~)

Today I am grateful for having a warm home on the first frosty morning of this fall, as when I went out to feed the barn cats this morning, the grass was all sparkly with diamonds of frost reflecting the brilliant morning sunshine, for having an entire day at home yesterday making some herbal massage cream from herbs like Chaparral and Calendula with coconut oil that soothes our human bodies because I feel nature is the first farmacy that I want to go to before I call the doctor and for trusting that having positive and negative emotions is perfect since even the electricity that powers my computer runs negative sometimes without any guilt, so today I honour all of my emotions as important, vital parts of me, I love my emotions. I love my emotions. I love my emotions. Thank you for being a bright spot in my day. Thank you for loving my emotions. I Love You.  :~)
