I went for a lovely walk with Monty, did some writing, I also raked leaves while chatting with Nick talking about StoryBook Club, did some sewing, worked on my MM banners and finished one! I enjoyed reading, having a hot bath and just relaxed with Harry, watching movies and puttering. Also, I decided I might make a new embroidered wall hanging...just dreaming up the layout now....
And a BONUS today!
Harry agreed (finally) to work on uncluttering our office. His pile was overflowing his desk and had engulfed the loveseat in there, making it unuseable for the last year. So NOW, tonight, after he worked on it for the whole day, he's made a lot of progress! It is encouraging and I feel that my path is opening up in front of me. The brush is clearing! :)
Monty has already found the loveseat and crashed on it and claimed it :)
I also have been re-reading a lot of Louise Hay's works, and together, we are watching several of her videos. Very encouraging, very inspiring! She uses "affirmations" to make positive changes in life.
If you haven't heard of Louise Hay, she's a motivational speaker, non-denomenational.
For it to really work for you, for positive change is that you must put the Affirmation into a "Present Tense" and act as if it's already acquired.
I liked some of these affirmations from her book "I can do it" - How to use affirmations to change your life":
Thought you might like some of them for ideas to use in your life:
"I radiate success and prosperity wherever I turn"
"I am discovering talents I did not know I had".
"I draw love and romance into my life and I accept it now." (I'd like to add lust to this one too :)
"I love and appreciate my body"
"I love me and take care of me."
"I do the work I love, with people I enjoy and I earn a good living".
"I am willing to change".
"My partner is the love of my life. We adore each other.
"My talents are in demand, and my unique gifts are appreciated by those around me."
"I do something new or at least different every day."
These are fabulous, bolstering affirmations. Louise Hay suggests that you look at yourself and say your affirimations many, many times each day. That change starts happening within first, like a seed that grows and then blooms.
If you have something that you would like to add to your life, consider using affirmations to add it into your consciousness.
