Good morning girls!!
I saw this quote/image this morning and it really made me smile. I’ve been feeling so disconnected the past few days. My life changed so quickly with John’s accident, and the financial strain and domestic strain it caused, and then this bleepin’ verdict and the aftermath came and added to my funkiness and I was angry. Well, I was oscillating between a low simmering anger and brief moments of remembering who/how I am, and being productive. Anger made everything seem harder and blocked my ability to view all the goodness in my life and I’m glad I’m moving past it now.
I’m extremely grateful for:
- Family and friends, their health and well-being
- A working “vacation” on the horizon for me at BlogHer
- My mother taking great care of Rohan while I’m away
- Doctors and Lawyers
- Youtube – I recently discovered some awesome guided meditations there
- The internet at large
- The bright future I’m choosing to create
- This incredibly powerful magical universe and everything in it.
Just had to get that out.
I stopped doing my usual routine cold turkey. It’s amazing to think that all the positive actions I take daily, I just dropped like a hot potato. Meditating, journaling, (ok i journaled a lil bit), writing out my goals, doing gratitude lists, writing out my to do lists, take my lil “me time, tea time (even tho I’ve been drinking coffee instead)” I just… stopped. And of course, my productivity, mood, and vibrations plummeted. Sadly so did my inner voice.
I had to treat myself as I would a client. I only have a few rules during sessions, but one that I force them to stick to is that they’re not allowed to say anything negative about themselves. (ex: if they say “oh I’m so lazy” I make them restate it into something like “i didn’t complete my action steps” or something similar) So in the past week and a half or so, I’ve noticed my self talk got so neggie, and I didn’t like that lil witch inside me so I started trying to “life coach myself” into turning that witch into an angel again.
I also suggest to my clients that they “surround themselves with happy” so I restarted doing the same. I listened to some of my favorite music all day yesterday, and listened to Louise Hay’s I Can Do It book via youtube (which I suggest to anyone whether they’re in a funk or not!) and redid my vision board (which I’ll share with you soon)
I’m giving thanks all day long, doing periodic rampages of appreciation, a tool I got from the book Ask & It Is Given, but I do it differently than the book says to. I just freeform write the items I’m grateful for down a minute or two at a time at random throughout the day. It really helps keep me happy and keep my mind on all the good around me, and what’s going right.
So, workin my way back to the generally happy Dani that I usually am. I just wanted to share. xx
