Live with an Attitude of Gratitude!

October 16th, 2009

I haven’t have a moment to write recently, but some really neat things have been happening! I have been practicing living with an attitude of gratitude and I highly recommend it! It seems to smooth out so much of the day and make things flow so much better.

Today was a little more low key than the days I have been all week, but it proved to be an important day as far as working on eliminating the negative messages that my subconscious mind was happily delivering to me. All week, I have been paying attention to my thoughts. It seems there is a pretty constant flow of “smack” talk (as my kids would say) that flows through my mind—but I have made an effort to check in with my self and listen to those thoughts, then work toward replacing the negative with more positive and empowering messages. (It was a tad exhausting trying to keep up.) I also worked on moving forward despite the fact that there were moments where all I wanted to do was pull the covers up over my head and hide from the world. I did however manage to persevere and wah-lah, more coolness came from the day than not!!

Here are a few of the highlights:

I met with one of my clients in the am to talk over a few design ideas for her kitchen. I love, love, love when I share an idea about something and the client replies, “I love that idea. I hadn’t thought about it, but it makes perfect sense!” Ta-dah! It makes me feel so genius! đŸ™‚

After leaving her place I went out to run a few errands. Earlier in the week, I had posted some of my jewelry designs (earrings mostly) on eBay. I have never used eBay as an outlet for selling my stuff before, but had always wanted to, and since I was feeling pretty inspired, I took the necessary pictures and set about creating ads for each item. Kind of fun, but it took a little bit more time than I expected. No worries, it was an experiment, and as part of the experiment I decided to employ the strategies I have been learning in Karim Hajee’s Creating Power book. So, as a sign to the universe that I trusted it would help lead people to my auctions and help me sell my items, I decided I should go out and buy the mailing supplies I needed to ship everything that people bought! I also thought that it would be a nice idea to get individually wrapped pieces of chocolate to pop into the package as a little thank you surprise! (That idea just puts a smile on my face because I always love when there is a little something extra in packages I receive. It seems like a nice way to do business!) In addition to this, I knew that I needed to head to the craft store to follow up on my “to-do” list for the scarf idea I had earlier in the week. My kids are with their father this weekend and I figured I would have some free time to try and come up with a pattern for it. I managed to find some really awesome yarn and come up with a brilliant idea for the button I need for the scarf while I was there. (Love that!!)

Anyway, as I was checking out, the “customer service representative” asked if I would like to donate a dollar to charity. (Quickly a phrase I have read repeatedly in books by Joe Vitale popped into my head, “money is energy, it needs to flow. To get you must give.”) “Sure!” I said to the cashier with a smile on my face. “I would love to give a dollar to charity, thank you for asking.” He rang up my merchandise and I headed out home.

By the time I got home it was close to 1:30. I stopped at the mailbox before pulling into the driveway, and much to my surprise, there was a check from a Secret Shopper job I had done two months ago and completely forgotten about. I had to go eat Lunch at Panera restaurant and do a quick evaluation. They pay me for my meal and a small fee for the evaluation. Not going to get rich doing it, but I need to eat and so I figure, why not get paid to eat. The check was for $21.02. I had to smile!! How awesome! I gave away a dollar and got back $21!!

The rest of the day puttered along nicely and around 9pm I checked in on my eBay items. “I know it is too early, I know it is too early,” I kept saying to myself, but I was curious. AND, to my amazement, some one had not only looked at one of my items, but put a bid in on it!!! An adorable pair of earrings that I had pulled together on Sunday morning while I was playing with my daughter Olivia and her friend. They wanted to make bracelets, so as I helped them, I was poking around in the bead box and the beads for this particular pair of earrings came together for me. Fun!!!

Ho’oponopono prayer:

Thank you! I love you! I am sorry! Please forgive me!

In love and gratitude!
