warm wednesday

I found this today – don’t know who said it – thought worthy of sharing -
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
Things I love Today
                        Dreamy wedding ‘stuff’
                        Sprouting garlic
                        Morning rain
Tid bits from the homefront:
            Hope [the momma cat], has taken up part-time residency here. She is such a sweet cat – not bothered at all by the dogs – and they seem to enjoy her as well.

Garden Fun:
            I can’t believe I forgot to plant garlic … handled that yesterday. I knew something was missing. This morning, it was already sprouting little bits of green – loving that.

I am excited to take pieces of PatriciaA Wearable Art to FABO in Charlotte on Friday … getting things ready this evening … challenging to decide which pieces to take – maybe I will just close my eyes and ‘pick’. That reminds me – that we have taken a few vacations with that ‘plan of attack’ – open the map, close eyes, twirl finger and point … fun. Taylor and I went to Portsmouth, [I think it was Portsmouth?] Virginia that way once a few years ago. Fun, fun … they had beautiful art all around town – colorful sculptures of mermaids – everywhere. That added to our missing Marley – she loved mermaids.
Things [people, places, events, tidbits from the universe] seem to always come right when we need them … I was reading this blog yesterday – love it - [& subscribe to my love-filled newsletter] she [Ev`Yan] has great affirmations. I printed them out and have a copy hanging on the bathroom mirror, one on the fridg, and one in my purse … it takes awhile to get things through my thick head sometimes; even when I thought I already had a handle on it – lesson redo – at least I believe it is at a higher level … maybe even a bit more than baby steps this time -

8 Simple Affirmations

You Should Whisper to Yourself Daily.

1.) “I am worthy.”
Worthy of love. Worthy of peace. Worthy of praise. Worthy of happiness. Worthy of pleasure.
2.) “My thoughts create my reality.”
Be aware of the thoughts that drift to & fro in your mind; they are direct reflectors of not only your inner world but your outer world. Believe in & aspire to positivity. If you believe that you are abundant, you will create abundance. If you believe you are blessed, you will create imminent blessings.
3.) “Be kind.”
Smile sweetly. Compliment a stranger. Ask someone how they are & really care about their well being. Exude friendliness & warmth, because everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Radiate compassionate consideration. Give until it hurts.
4.) “The opinions of others don’t really matter.”
Filter the words you hear throughout the day. Only internalize the ones that resonate with your natural rhythms. And when you do listen to the wisdom of others, take it with a grain or two of salt. Cherish your ability to make sound choices; rely on it. Listen to your heart; it’ll never steer you wrong.
5.) “I am stunning.”
Repeat five times more for good measure. Hammer this into your brain. Never forget it.
6.) “Life is beautiful.”
Through the trials & tribulations, through the intricate complexities & complications… life & your existence within it is beautiful. Dwell on that.
7.) “Breathe.”
Be conscious of every breath you take. Relish in the sensation of your lungs filling up with air; inflate them to their fullest capacity. And when you exhale, smile.
8.) “Be in this moment.”
Stay mindful, stay present, stay centered. And when you feel yourself drifting out of inner consciousness, remind yourself that the past & future are elaborate illusions; that the only time is now.
Only a week and a half until the dreamy wedding …
Until tomorrow xo
The wise discuss ideas,
The fools discuss how people behave.
