Today, Jamie suggests us to think about what we want to say "no" to.
Oh Gosh, I know how hard it can be to say "no" to someone we like/love, or just saying "no" because we fear to deceive people, because we have the fear they would think we are selfish or whatever. We have to learn again how to simply say "no" without feeling guilty about it. It is hard, yes.
But knowing how to say "no" is like taking time for yourself, wondering what is really good for you, despite the fact you want to please the others around you. It's not because you say "no" that you are a bad person.
I wish to say "no" to all the excuses I find myself for not achieving things.
I don't have time (the most common excuse people give !).
I don't know how to do.
I'm not good enough.
It's not how I want(ed) it to be (so I stop before I finish it).
There is always a good excuse to not finish something, and sometimes not even start something. I want to stop this negative cycle.
I may find the book "Excuses begone" by Dr Wayne Dyer to help me through that (note: put it on my wishlist)
I love roaming on YouTube, looking for songs and/or videos I don't know yet, from artists I like.
That is what happened for this video I think is really poetic and beautiful (If we are friends on Facebook, you may have already seen this video on my wall a while ago).
I love Sara Bareilles' videos because they're usually really visual.
In this song, she sings with Ingrid Michaelson.
I am so grateful currently that I have no idea how to sort it out clearly... It's a good sign: everything is okay or almost, and when it's not how I want, I'm not obsessed by it as I used to be. I notice this change as I come back on my week to remember it.
I am thankful for one of my Soul-Sister, who is currently as the dawn of a rebirth, in every way. I am so glad to be a witness of the progress made, to see the evolution as time goes by and despite the rocks put on her road. I'm proud of her, of her strength, and that she never gave up; it's time for her to start a new life. Stronger than ever.
I say "thank you" to Life for showing us several options, it shows us what really matters to us. It's often thanks to "no" that we know what is important for us, deeply. And that new doors appear.
Thanks to A. for being who she is and sharing her gifts.
Thanks to the Source, and to me, because I created a self-portrait I wanted to do for a long time but was stuck by Fear. Finally, it is imperfect but I am imperfect; and I can't help but look at it. I admit I love it, and I'm slowly discovering what my personal style looks like.
Thanks to Samantha Kira for her weekly vlogs, live on ustream. It's awesome to see her create, and to have the possibility to ask her questions about the process, the material and so on. I made a three-quarter girl thanks to her: yipaaa !!
Positive attracts Positive !
Tonight is the Full Moon. So strong. February flew by like crazy for me. Today is the final day of the Winter Olympic Games that happened here in Vancouver; it's around 5:30pm and people are honking because Canada won the Gold Medal in Ice Hockey (national sport in Canada). Vancouver is getting ready to let the visitors that where here for two weeks go home...
My WishBoard does not look like what I usually create, I think; it's more simple, less colorful. I try to concentrate my attention on one or two things at a time because I tend to scatter. I had a theme in mind before I start, but I went with the flow and I unintentionnaly moved from it.
This cycle, for me..:
▶ I need to focus myself back on my Dreams, I tended to forget them for this two first months of 2010, to turn them aside.
▶ I want to continue to WishCast to the Universe, and for me wishcasting is paired with the dandelion on which you blow to send your wishes away joyfully.
▶ Will and need to focus on the writing of my book, too... I am inclined to be overwhelmed by fear and so I procrastinate a lot. I think a lot of having a tywriter, do it old-school style. I used one when I was younger, borrowed by my aunt. I loved feeling and hearing the sound of the keyboard under my fingers. I miss it.
▶ I decide to commit to feel the Love around me, and to send it back.
▶ And I ask the Universe to help me hear and trust my Voice Within, please.
This week, I simply want to thank Life, and the Universe/Source/God/You_Name_It_As_You_Want. For making my life beautiful despite the rocks on my road, for putting so nice people on my way (strangers who give presents to my daughters "just because" are just an example). Thank you for offering us what we need to change our life and make it better for our family.
Thank you for my/our "supportive circle", you know who you are and I'm so blessed to have you around me to keep me grounded, to cheering me.
Thank you to my Husband, he is the best for me and their is no word in the World that exists to describe our love; I just live it, feel it and appreciate it, no need to name it.
Thank you Jamie, for your everyday inspiration. You push me to dig deeper in me and to go further in my intention without even knowing it.
Thank you Alice, for your everyday blogposts and the time you take to chat with me.
Thank you Anne-Marie for your emails, they are always, always appreciated. One day, we'll meet in real life, somewhere in Canada.
Thank you Wioleta, from Hay House, for her kindness. I am so happy and proud to be and Advanced Release Reader.
Thank you to you, who come here and share with me your Gratitude Friday, your thoughts about what I write.
