Blessed…

By April 17, 2009 Blog

I am so incredibly blessed… I love my life and the people in it!

I invite you to tune and feel how blessed you are as well. Does it mean everything in my life is exactly the way I would like it to be? No. Does it mean I have no worries, no fears, concerns, hurts? No. I know you are the same way. We are all living life. Living in a world of constant change and recent upheaval. A world full of fear and people who have no control over their emotions of minds and run rampart filling others with fear as well. Looking around, most people would most likely think “the world is crazy, and full of pain and sadness and loss”. Is this what you see? Is this what you focus on each day, the news, the ‘what if’s’, the ‘why me’s’?

Yes, those things exist…. and beauty exists too, abundantly. All around you and me is the most amazing field of abundance and well being. No, they do not talk about it on the news, They do not share all the kind, considerate, giving and loving things people do every day all around the world. They do not think that is worthy of discussing, they do nto think it will interest you. Selling fear is easy, scare everyone, sit around and talk about lots of horrible things that will never happen and stress everyone to the max and then your ratings will be the best! Lie, accuse good people of bad deeds and intentions and tell you how you are being screwed by them, this and that.

I choose to see and live in the reality that is so prevalent around us that we often ignore it. We take it for granted we have all the air we need, and usually all the water and food. We expect the earth to be here to support us each day and rarely give it another thought. I, however, feel blessed. I love feeling blessed. I much prefer it to sadness, anger, hate and powerlessness. I know I get to choose what I think about. I get to choose how I feel, what meaning I give everything and how I respond to what happens around me. I think this is amazing, fantastic and such a blessing!

See if I had no choice in what I listened to and watched. If i had no say in who I spent time with or what I do each day. If I was not allowed to decide how I wanted to respond to the events in my life, then I would understand being sad, depressed, scared or anxious. BUT (giant ‘but’) I DO have the free will and the ability to choose!!!! Isn’t that reason enough to feel blessed? I think so!! Thank goodness I can decide not to watch the news, obsess over ever little ‘what if’ and I can choose my mood! I honor and am so grateful for this moist powerful of all abilities.

I give thanks for being able to connect with all of you and for my amazing, courageous and kind clients and students. I give thanks for my beautiful view and place to live. I give thanks for my healthy, fun twin girls whom I love with all my heart! I give thanks for the Internet, that I can work from my home and reach the world with ease! I give thanks for all my brilliant, fun, compassionate and uplifting friends! I give thanks for my body and that I get to experience life each day and see, feel touch and hear the beauty that surrounds me! I give thanks for my mind, it lets me learn new ideas, it brainstorms concepts, writes things that uplifts and enlightens, and allows me to understand so much. I give thanks for my emotions, that guide me, communicate with me and allow me to feel with depth and richness. I give thanks for my heart, the center of my being that is the fuel for my body and my soul. My heart creates all I have, do and experience. My heart is my point of attraction and my center for deep love and Divine connection.

Most of all, in this moment, I give thanks for my beloved, my love of my life, my soul mate. He lifts me up, kisses me all day, loves me unconditionally and appreciates me beyond comprehension. He understands and is patient, letting me be me in any situation, He gives with all his heart, always doing his best and being honest, sincere and givine. He is smart and talented and have a brilliant mind. He excels in business, marketing and web design, giving his clients the best in service, product and care. He is creative and enjoys life, fun and people. He loves to travel and he loves to be with me. He sends me cards several times a week even after 3 years together. He holds me when I need and lets me be alone too. He is the most wonderful person I have ever met and I get to spend every day with him! How more blessed can I be?!

I wanted to share the card he gave me today, enjoy, and why not let someone special in your life know how blessed you are to have them in your life? Look for what is right, what is wonderful, fun, comforting and fulfilling. Look for proof that life is abundant, beautiful and that you are blessed… isn’t that what you want anyway? Then why not look for it, because if you do, you will see it! It may be just a tiny thing you see at first to feel blessed about. Yet, then you will feel better…and your mind will want to seek out more blessings. Soon you will have he habit if always looking for what is good and exciting. Soon the world will seem more full of possibility and joy than fear and sadness. Remember, you get to choose what you look for, what you notice and what you focus on. I choose love, joy, beauty, happiness, fun, adventure, success, wealth, health and expansion. I know it is all around me, so i choose to dip into it each day by knowing it is there, giving thanks for it and feeling in to the love. You can too! Have a blessed weekend!

Here is my card from Chris, my beloved:

I Promise
that I Will Love You

I cannot promise you that
I will not change
I cannot promise you that
I will not have many different moods
I cannot promise you that
I will not hurt your feelings sometimes
I cannot promise you that
I will not be erratic
I cannot promise you that
I will always be strong
I cannot promise you that
my faults will not show
But –
I do promise you that
I will always be supportive of you
I do promise you that
I will share all my thoughts
and feelings with you
I do promise you that
I will give you freedom to be yourself
I do promise you that
I will understand everything that you do
I do promise you that
I will be completely honest with you
I do promise you that
I will laugh and cry with you
I do promise you that
I will help you achieve all your goals
But –
most of all
I do promise you that
I will love you
