I'm glad summer is just about over! Strange to say, but ugh, too damn hot for me to function! Yikes!!!!! Looking forward to cooler days. The only thing that just about kept me sane this summer was the little blessings here and there that I stumbled upon. With so many things going on in the world and so many things going on in my personal life, one can get discouraged. I found myself with a lot of free time, overthinking and over feeling. But somehow, there was still a light at the end of the tunnel. It's so cliché to say things will get better, especially during these confusing and hard times the world is facing. But there really isn't a choice in the matter, either 'suck it up buttercup' or not. Louise Hay died yesterday. She made it ok to talk to yourself in the mirror and tell yourself, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and doggone it, people like me" Hopefully someone will get that reference, lol! Anyhow, It's important to say affirmations. Louise suggested that the mind listens when you speak positive things to yourself. Something that I must practice more often. I will admit that when I am on a positive kick, little miracles do pop up on more than one occasion. Who's to say, there isn't a correlation? I literally was upset one day, couple of weeks ago, wont divulge too much, but I was so upset that I even started crying. Well, something internally stopped me in my tracks and I started to think positive and say to myself, "Today is a good day. Blessings are on their way." Well, I kid you not. A friend of mine, texted me 15 minutes later to invite me to a Lionel Richie concert. If that's not a miracle, I don't know what is. I don't want to sound like one of those woo-woo enthusiasts (a little too late for that) but from what I have concluded so far is, that a dash of positively can go along way. Who knows, you might just end up dancing on the ceiling.
