A Smile in my Heart

August 24th, 2010

I didn’t want to go out today. In fact, I was feeling so uninspired this morning that I didn’t even want to get out of my jammies. From time to time, my children and I like to have a “jamama day” and luckily for me, today was a day where they seemed pretty amenable to this idea.

In our house, jamama day is a day to sit and do nothing except rent movies, eat popcorn and hang out. Game playing, poking through old photo albums and laughing all day are also high on the list. It feels really nice to have a day like that once in a while — a self made opportunity to unplug from the world. Aaaah, breathe!

My kids spent their morning flopping around, moving between watching tv and giving the dogs a bath. I spent my time listening to a great snip-it from David and Kristin Morelli on creating abundance. It was a download I had from one of their Everything is Energy Radio shows. I have to admit, that when I started listening to it this morning, my feelings about abundance were a bit lackluster. It was just the place I was in. But as I listened, some of their words began to click. They were talking about being present, being open and being ready to receive. Hmmmm. That seemed like the exact opposite of what I was feeling this morning.

Choose Happiness

August 17th, 2010

🙂 Living a happy, resilient and optimistic life is wonderful, and is also good for your health! Being happy actually protects you from the stresses of life. Unfortunately, the news is constantly reminding us that stress is linked to top causes of death such as heart disease, cancer and stroke. (Feeling happy yet?!!?!)

Let’s do a quick reframe! There is good news! Happiness is a choice! As human beings it is important to realize that we have the power to choose happiness! Even if we find ourselves in an unbearable situation, solace can be found in the knowledge that there is a choice as to how we perceive it. That is not to say the situation still isn’t a bad one, just that there is a choice you can make over how it will impact you. And that is great news!

Happiness can be found in everyone, so doesn’t finding a way to amplify that make sense?

To be happy is relatively easy, just decide to be a happy person. Most people for most of the time can choose how happy or stressed, how relaxed or troubled, or how bright or dull their outlook will be, so the choice is simple really—choose to be happy. Not so simple you say? I assure you, it can be with just a little practice! To get you started, I have listed a few easy ways to do just that! 🙂

Being grateful is a great attitude. ♥ We have so much to be thankful for. Thank the taxi driver for bringing you home safely, thank the mailman for bringing you your mail, or thank your friend for listening. I like to find ways throughout the day to thank my children. This not only helps me connect with them in a positive way, but it increases their self esteem and outlook. So it is a real win/win. In fact just today, I noticed my daughter practicing this very same technique on me and let me tell you something, you couldn’t have knocked the smile out of my heart if you tried!! Read more…
