Aside from some physical ailments I feel better. Last week when I started I said I felt about a 5 on a scale of 1-10. Today I feel I am at about 6.5-7. I still have a killer headache but my spirit is up.
Remember when I didn’t have a Mala necklace to recite my affirmations with? Well sure enough one found its way to me. It’s perfect. It’s beautiful. Best of all its purple! You ask and the Universe will give.
So I have switched to doing one trip around the Mala three times a day. In part three I will explain a little deeper about what a Mala is.
Day 8 Affirmation: I am so fucking grateful for my life.
Absolutely! Reflecting and looking back on my 27 years, it has been a wild adventure! I have done so much! Some good, some bad, but in the end it was all an experience. Do I regret doing some things? Absolutely! But would I change them? Absolutely not! I am where I am because of the choices I have made. I am grateful for every good thing and bad that I have gone through in life. It is all part of this great adventure called life.
Day 9 Affirmation: I am fucking worthy of my dreams.
Damn straight I am! And I am a master manifestor and can make this shit happen.
Believe in yourself. You are more powerful than you will ever give yourself credit for. Dream big. Follow those dreams. Life is too short to not pursue passion. No one will hand you the things you want most in life, those are things earned through hard work and perseverance. When those goals are reached you will feel so amazing!
Day 10 Affirmation: I can overcome any fucking obstacles.
Life threw me a curve ball today. A wonderful man passed onto the next chapter of life. He was old (97 to be exact) so it isn’t a heartbreaking loss, but he was still a man I knew, loved and will miss. So it is a bittersweet event.
This is a man I view as a grandfather. When I was young and making bad decisions, I made a smart decision to turn my life around. I moved in with a family, and they treated me just like family. The father in this family, his mom and her husband welcomed me with open arms. For the last 8 years they have told me how proud of me they are and they have helped me so much.
When I heard of Doug’s passing it was like losing a grandparent. The only comfort I can find is knowing he is not suffering anymore. Death really is hardest on the ones left behind.
Rest In Peace Doug. Thanks for your love.
Day 11 Affirmation: I have all the fucking time I need to do everything I desire!
I took today and tomorrow off. All I really need to do is relax. I took this time off to relax and ground myself. I never take off time from work and it is about time I did. I am entitled to two weeks off and I only take one. Work is not my life and I really need to remember that.
Please remember to take time for yourself. Don’t slave for a company that will replace you without a care. You owe it to yourself. If you work your life away you will miss the little things in life that matter. You’ll miss the smell of flowers in the garden, or the funny shaped clouds in the sky. You’ll miss witnessing love all around you. You’ll miss the little quirky things in life that make life….well life.
Day 12 Affirmation: I have a badass life that I love.
I do have a badass fucking life! I work with animals, have a beautiful dog and a wonderful man I love. I manifested our living arrangements. I am free to do what I want, when I want. I have more good days than bad. And I am not angry all the time like I was this time last year!
Life can be easy to complain about, but look at what you have. You are alive. Live. Life is fragile and when we see only the bad, we live a negative life. If you can find one positive thing about each day, then maybe the worst days won’t seem so bad.
Day 13 Affirmation: I fucking celebrate myself today.
I celebrated the life of a man who lived his life until the ripe age of 97. His funeral made me remember that we need to enjoy life.
On Doug’s last day he was surrounded by loved ones. Instead of it being a somber day, Doug was sitting up in his chair conducting people as they sang his favorite church songs. That is life. Dying but still living.
His funeral reminded me of many things. We only have so much time in this world. Some people may not understand you, some people may laugh at you, but if you live doing things you love then you will be truly happy. Doug didn’t need material possessions and neither do the rest of us. There is a ticking clock in our lives and we can either spend our time being who others want us to be or just be ourselves.
So today after the funeral I did some stuff for me. I didn’t rush around the streets to get to where I had to go. I stopped in to see my dad and spent time listening to him play guitar. We talked and just spent some time together. I went to the mall to pick up some things for other people and indulged and bought some things for me. I didn’t rush. I just enjoyed where I was in the moment I was in it. I cranked the radio and sang my heart out. I rolled the windows down and felt the breeze in my hair. I did things I wanted to do and enjoyed them. When I went to bed I was at peace.
Day 14 Affirmation: I can & I absolutely fucking will!
Another relaxing day on my mini vacation. Woke up just before 8am. Watched Coronation Street (don’t judge me) on the couch with the dog. Boyfriend got coffee. Then I gave my favorite neighbors their parting gifts for the trailer season.
They said I couldn’t do that. I looked those ladies in the eyes and said, “I can and I absolutely fucking will!”
I believe in showing gratitude. This was our first season at the park and they made it quite enjoyable. I wanted to say thanks. Don’t tell me I can’t say thanks!
What a wonderful week it has been. Overall my energy levels are up. My mood has been positive. I am happy. I truly believe in the power of affirmations because two weeks ago I was miserable and now I am overflowing with gratitude.
Thank you to those that have read this and follow this. It means so much to me that you have taken time out of your day to read my thoughts and watch me change my life by putting magic into words.
Part 3 will be released next week.
Peace. Love. Blessed be.
