Putting it into words

I haven't written lately because where I am in life is almost impossible to put into words - it is as if God - in one day - in one moment gave me the willingness that I had been praying for my entire sobriety. They say when you put out into the universe your wants make sure that you are ready to receive them. This month I started a business, and in one months time it is holding its own. I made a commitment to do yoga everyday until my Birthday - and I have kept it. I am clearing the things in my life that have been blocking me from the sunlight of the spirit, and I have done a load of laundry everyday for 17 days (if you know me then you know I have a laundry issue) 

I set my intentions for the year so high that I couldn't fathom them coming true - but they are. 

My life takes my breath away. Thank you so much for being a part of it. ❤️

A new perception on my Valentine's Day Pity Party

Yesterday I posted on Facebook that I was having Valentine's Day pity party - but then today I woke up with a brand new perception. I was having a pity party because I had expectations of what I thought I should have or receive on Valentine's Day - it suddenly dawned on me how ungrateful that was. Valentine's Day is a day that is suppose to represent love - and to me loving is all about giving and gratitude - neither of which I was doing..... 

The truth is if there is one thing that I have a ton of to give and it's love. So today instead of focusing on what I could get, I focused on what I could give. It's amazing how much love I got in return - funny how that works :) 

May your Valentine's Day be filled with love - lots and lots of love!

Guy Friends

If you know me in real life you know that I have a ton of guys friends. I'm that girl. The one who has to be explained about to the new girlfriend. I am friends with my x-husband and pretty much every boyfriend I've ever had. My guy friends are the bomb. They are the reason that I haven't gotten myself into any codependent relationships in sobriety. I think women stay in relationship that may not be healthy for us because men take care of a lot of things. I don't know about you, but for me life is much less scary with a man around. So I'm so blesses to have not one but many men in my life who will suit up and show up. 

The above picture totally reminded me of my guy friends. They put up with a lot from me. There are times I am needy and annoying - but there is not one day that goes by that I don't feel loved and protected. <3

Self talk

 I am entering into a peaceful new place. I have been uncomfortable and in a little bit of fear. I took it as the normal feelings that come from being in between jobs. But I recently found out that wasn't really what it is at all. It was my self talk. It was me worrying about what I was going to do, how was going to do it, when it was going to happen - which is stuff I normally turn over- As much as my self talk was in prayer, it was just as much in fear. The only way for me to explain what I did is to say I sort of -rebooted my brain- ever thought is either accepted or paused and replaced with something beautiful. 

I talk a lot about mastering your own mind. If it is true that we become what we think - then aren't our thoughts the most important thing we have?
