This is the second in the series, “What a Difference a Year Makes“. While I always considered myself a glass-half-full kinda girl, being positive does require some work but it is very worth it.
A while back I saw the movie, “The Secret” and was very intrigued but soon forgot the general principals of the Law Of Attraction. Then last year when I found myself unemployed, I starting reading about the Law in depth. I started applying its principals everyday in order to attract the life I truly wanted. I have to tell you that it truly does work. Thinking positively does make a difference if you want to make changes in your life for the better. There are a gazillion books on LOA, so I won’t go into here but I will say that I am blessed to have found it and I am a true believer.
As of a year ago my career was drab, monotonous and overwhelming. While I got paid very well, it felt like blood money. My job took time away from my family just to be stressed, under appreciated and miserable. I felt like a prisoner who was owned by a bunch of people I didn’t even like. I literally felt as if a piece of me was dying everyday that I drove into that parking lot.
Then the best thing happened…I was laid off. Some people may think that being let go would be devastating but it’s all how you look at things. What was more important – my sanity or a big pay check? For me the answer was obvious. Then I started thinking positively and I applied the law of attraction. I laid out the life that I wanted by visualizing it and believing it was mine. My situation did a complete 180 and I was able to stay afloat financially. I learned what was truly important to me in the process.
Today I can say without hesitation that for once I am truly happy. Thinking positively doesn’t cost a dime but it does take dedication.
So if you want to change your situation, get a new job, better yourself or just be a lighter, happier person, start believing in yourself and your dreams.
Open up your world. Think positively.
I have not posted in quite a while, over a year in fact, and the amount of change in my life has been incredible. While I won’t bore you with all the details in this one post (I will do that over time), I will say that this in summary and expand later:
~ Dreams can come true – I mean it!
~ Positive thinking does work – it is never too late
~ Karma can definitely be on your side – so be good (for goodness sake)
~ Always listen to your gut – it knows what the hell it’s doing
~ Make as many connections as you can – they will pay off
~ Lastly, enjoy the ride – you get one chance People!
Again, I am happy to be back and I look forward to elaborating on my year and what all this means. Yes, it all has a meaning and you just might learn something.
My husband surprised us with a priceless gift (well not exactly priceless – he cost what?!)
-Anyhoo, I realized after having an 8 week old puppy for a few days that if I could come back as a puppy, I would. I’d sleep 18 hours a day, eat, drink, get into mischief and be forgiven because I’m so cute, sleep where ever I damn well please and get rewarded for peeing and pooping. Can you say “dream life”?
Yup. Welcome Louie or should I say King Louie. Oh how I envy you.
Kids do say the darnedest things and mine is no exception. Forget about the sporadic and untimely outburst about the person next to us. I am talking about the things they come out with in their own words. And when I say “their own” I mean that they seem to have their own language completely.
Here are a few of my daughters latest entries into Bella’s Dictionary if 4-year-old-isms and their English translation:
Koy boy hat – cowboy hat
Jimamams – pajamas
Ear bones – ear lobes
A and p – teepee
Sprinkles – pins and needles
Spicy butt – unknown
By the time she is 6 we should be able to start a blog in this new and interesting vernacular.
Please share words from your kid’s language.
Driving to school today, we were discussing what college is about. I explained that college teaches us all we need to know for what we want to be when we grow up. So like any curious person, I asked my 4 year old, what she wanted to be when she was big. Annoyed that I didn’t remember, she answered, “Mom, I told you! I want to make krabby patties!” I laughed inside and told her that was great. So being a positive person, I drove into work thinking about why that wouldn’t be such a bad job.
Here are my 5 reasons why working at the Krusty Krab making Krabby Patties wouldn’t be so bad.
- Healthier Food – The food is healthier than other fast food options out there. I mean face it, burgers are much greasier and less healthy than crab meat.
- Equal Opportunity – Mr. Krabs has his faults but he hires and caters to all kinds… sponges, star fish, crabs, squids, fish of kinds and even squirrels.
- Sufficient Demand – The Krusty Krab is always busy and Spongebob alone helps keep demand on the up and up.
- No Competition – The only competition is the struggling Chum Bucket. The owner is evil and they only serve chum. I don’t really consider them competition.
- Location Location Location – What better place to work then in the Bikini Bottom. Who does not love the ocean?
So all in all I support my daughters decision to work along side Spongebob and make Krabby Patties when she grows up!
Side note: Isn’t it weird that Mr Krabs serves Krab?
This past weekend we went to an annual Steeple Chase fondly referred to as “the Hunt”. This was the backdrop on a perfect fall day.
If you panned far right of this photo, you would see some drunken college kids peeing on the port-o-johns (not in them), some throwing up and others passed out on the ground. BUT for the purposes of this post, we will focus solely on the lovely backdrop.
