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. :~)

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. Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for sharing what you are grateful for today. I Love YOU.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Haircut

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) believe that even though there is great sorrow on the physical plane that there is also great joy and passion. I have discovered that my emotional pain is related to my perspective on the pain. I can choose to joyfully tolerate the physical discomforts of this world with the knowing that this too shall pass. I have practiced for decades the attitude to be grateful for every event, every person and every situation in my life and my whole being relaxes. I realize that there are going to be some days that for many reason are a bit tougher than others so I make them easier by focusing on all I have to be thankful for in the moment and I feel lighter and more in touch with source energy. I bravely love the tough days and the easy days as I need a little fertilizer just like the garden does to grow strong, healthy and vibrant. Thank you for the moments you are here today. Thank you for sharing your emotional vibrations with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Today I am grateful for my new hair cut yesterday and the loving connection we have with this talented and deep listening hair artist Nicole CalDee Collingridge and here is a link to her website, for getting braver at sharing my dream of happiness with everyone I meet and finding new ways to share my joy and for getting to go to Dallas Rd. in Victoria, BC and just sit and watch the water of the Salish Sea writhing under the force of the wind observing the paragliders enjoying the wind and watching the dogs and their owners frolicking in the wind. Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for sharing your adventure with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)
