So, since my revelation (that I didn’t have the courage to post until today), I have watched The Secret (my Honey bought me the book) wow, was that eye opening! It gave me a new perspective. The Power of Positive Thinking and believing things into existence. It’s hard when you’re always expecting something to go wrong. Honey calls me Chicken Little… I wish it was funny but, when something starts to go south I panic and think the worst and in turn get him riled up as well. Most of the time it’s not as bad as I imagined and we are worked up for nothing. That takes a lot out of you. I give the benefit of the doubt and think the best of people all of the time but, I am sure you know how easy it is to get sucked into gossip or negative speak. Misery loves company after all. It’s more of a challenge to think about the good – what you are grateful for, being good to others and so forth. If you can commit to only allowing positive vibes you’ll start to see your life change in a good way. Good attracts good. Although things are not perfect in my life or the world with the Covid -19, I still feel a sense of happiness in my heart, an err of lightness about me as I think only good thoughts. How about you give it a try? Clear your mind of the negative and think about happy thoughts. Hey, Peter Pan’s happy thoughts helped him fly – I think it’s worth a try!
I’ve also started meditating. I have been researching it for a few days but decided to delve in. Today was day 1 and I learned how to breathe! I know that we do that on our own without any guidance but today I learned how to breathe with a purpose. To let everything else go and just breathe. Relax my body and mind, let the thoughts come and go and allow myself to do nothing without guilt. The lesson was 15 minutes long and the doing nothing part was maybe 7 minutes but, as I sat outside on the porch, I heard the birds chirp and fly by, my dogs footsteps as she ran from one side of the deck to the other following the birds, my Uncle inside laughing at something he was watching on t.v., my Nana’s spanish guitar music playing as she sat on the other side of the deck (I downloaded Spotify on her phone earlier this morning), I felt the breeze gently wash over me as I sunk further and further into my chair. My worries dissipated, with my eyes closed, different visions came and went – Isaac’s smile, Brad giving me a hug, Miah playing with Raiyhn, and then of course the visions of what I heard, imagining I could see them happening as I heard the sounds.
I plan to create a page for the Event Planning business I have committed to starting. Obviously nothing is being planned at the moment but I have no doubt that once this stay in place is over, everyone is going to want to celebrate. I’ll be ready!
I don’t think one blog post is going to change everything, nor can anything be fixed in a day. But, I made a step in the right direction! Did you read that correctly? Ms. Stuck in Place, Ms. Paralyzed made a move? Hell yes, I DID! No need for applause. Haha, I don’t take this lightly. I’m proud of myself.
I like myself, I’m glad I’m me, there’s no one else I’d rather be!
