My 2015 New Year Resolutions Q4

This year will be a year of laying the foundation for the life I want to live. I intend to live each day with absolute intention, live life passionately, clean up past obligations, re-energize my relationships (causing others to feel special with me because they are special), set some family traditions, love my work, improve my physical (exercise) and emotional well-being (Pancakes for the Soul: enjoying life in small bites – laughing), and serve my community.

Thoughts Become Things … Choose the Good Ones!

Live Each Day Intentionally … Take Massive Action Each and Every Day!

 

I Am Intentionally Re-Setting My Alignment

Update 10/30: The theme for October is Balance … so timely, yet so elusive. I am wearing many hats and juggling many balls. Balance seems to be out of reach. Instead I retreat to somewhat safe thoughts such as, “Once I get this done and out of the way, then I will be able to have more balance,” or “Once this situation is behind us, I will be able to feel more balanced,” or “If only I could get a handle on this, then life will be in balance.” The short explanation is that my life clearly is not in balance.

One of my original goals for 2015 was to generate $3,000/month in passive income from my internet businesses. That also did not happen, however, I am now generating $3,000/month from my physical work as a teacher and other sources. Does that count as manifesting my intentions? I suppose it does.

Another of my intentions was that I had the perfect husband and family. I dedicated myself to the daily routine of reciting this mantra over and over until late June. When things appeared to be getting worse rather than better, I tossed the desire aside – obviously, the Universe had other plans for me. It has been a rocky road, with a very upsetting culmination in September, but it led to the big finally of manifesting exactly what I had intended. Was it the letting go or was it offered up in Universe’s time?

In reviewing my original intentions, another one that is coming together is to have all of my kids on Christmas Day. Well, I will have 4 out of the 5 due to the impending birth of my 2nd grandchild – I’ll take that as a success in manifesting my desires. He will be with us, not in body, but in love.

Notes from The Power Path: (Timely Truth – I will provide an update in about a week.)

October 23-30:  This is the time you bring back trust and faith and put them into the mix in your strive for balance. You may still be integrating and assimilating recent changes making life seem a little disorganized. Doubt about recent decisions may cause confusion and it may seem like you are driving in the fog and not able to see around the bend. The action part of your life may feel overwhelming and the receptive part of your life may feel useless. Stay with it and clarity will come. It maybe easier to identify what is imbalanced than to acknowledge what is coming into balance. Identifying what is still out of balance is the first step. Sometimes that is all it takes.

When all else fails allow yourself to come into resonance with the earth. The earth is always in present time and always in its own harmony and balance. Coming into resonance with the earth will reset your own equilibrium and help with balance.

The good news is that everything is evolving and we are in the process of integrating old energies that have been shaken loose into a new configuration and balance. Be sure to acknowledge anytime anything feels or appears to be different than the usual. It is a sign of progress.

Let’s talk about Q4. How are your new year resolutions coming along?

I Love My Body

Ellen DeGeneres interviews Robin Lawley, a 6’2″ plus-size model. Robin shares how the fashion industry needs to change in how they view a woman’s body. The number one thing a woman can do that is good for her sol and for her body is to love her body just the way it is. Acceptance is key.

Morsels of Happy

Happiness comes from within. This I know.

But, it’s those LOL moments that really brighten my day.

Sometimes my humor is ill-placed.

Most of the time, my bf does not find me amusing in the least.

Like when I spammed his phone last night.

It went something like this:

LOL

Sometimes I look at my husband and think, “Dammmmmn … You are one LUCKY SOB!”

DON’T YOU TYPE AT ME IN THE TONE OF VOICE.

It’s a beautiful day. I think I’ll skip my meds and stir things up a bit.

I’m not bossy … I’ve been blessed with an administrative gift. :)~

I just realized that most of my conversations begin with, “I just saw this thing on Pinterest that made me giggle …”

Annnnd … you don’t find one OUNCE of amusement in me AT ALL!

Don’t try to tell me that hungry is not an emotions because I feel that shit in my soul.

Sometimes … true story yo.

Share something quirky that makes you giggle.

Make Peace with Perfection

You can’t help being perfect. Stop trying to hide it!

I did this for a long time. I dressed down, I let myself go, I was in every sense of the word – a martyr … why? Because I thought I had to look the part of a slovenly over-worked, under-appreciated, full-time, stay-at-home-mom.

Somewhere along the line, that became my identity, and boy did I rise to the occasion of matching what I looked like and how I behaved to was going on in my head. Definitely not one of the inspiring chapters in my autobiography.

I was 100% in every way, what I thought I was.

I hit bottom.

HA!

And then, after about many years of sitting on the bottom, having convinced myself that I could not stand up … I DID!

Whatever I think, I become (almost overnight – it’s spooky).

I think fat … I gain 5 pounds.

I think my once taut skin is now flabby … and bring on the striated, stretched-out skin.

I think tired … I can’t get through the day.

You get the idea, right? I can’t make this stuff up! Fo sho … it’s real!

Abraham on Law of Attraction and Weight Loss

Abraham responds to an attendee’s statement that she has applied the Law of Attraction Principles to her weight loss journey. Abraham retorts that applying the LOA Principles is like setting the intention of applying the Law of Gravity.

Abraham goes on to say that the key to losing weight is to make peace with where you are right now.

Stop the Dieting Madness

Dieting never works.

Let me repeat that:

Dieting never works!

But you might say, “That’s not true, Alice. You see, I lost 429 pounds (total) each time I religiously stuck with the miracle diet: Lose 10 Pounds Overnight without Starving Yourself. All I had to do was take a colon flusher which detoxes your entire body starting from the brain all the way down to your toes!”

OK … I’m calling you out on this one: bull ……………………………….. shit.

Temporary diets are useless because as soon as you remove the diet, weight previously lost (if any), will be gained back, two-fold!

Lap bands (or any surgery that is designed to shrink the amount of food your stomach can hold at one time) do not work long term, either. There are two reasons dangerous and costly procedures like this FAIL:

  1. Your stomach is similar to a BAG. It can expand and shrink.
  2. The behaviors behind why you eat so much (or don’t exercise) don’t change. You’ll maintain the same destructive patterns and repeat history. Aaaaand … you’ll not only be fat, but you’ll also be poorer, too!

Stop the Dieting Madness!

Have you ever known someone who seems to be able to eat anything s/he wants and never gain an ounce, while you merely think about food and gain a pound? You chalk it up to good genes, while you were somehow (and unfairly) passed over from elite entry into the good genes pool. Wth?!

You’ve seen this often enough that you can no longer ignore the obvious:

Those other skinny b****es are doing something differently: They aren’t thinking that they are fat.

I’m not going to tell you that they only eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full, cuz that’s a load of crap, too. The truth is that skinny people do eat when they aren’t hungry and overindulge even though they are full. That’s normal. But it’s not their norm for every meal.

And here’s another fact: Skinny women have fat days too!

So this is your homework for this week:

Stop dieting.

Do not allow negative thoughts about your weight or appearance come into play. I have struggled with this, too. But it’s life or death important that you learn to replace those destructive thoughts with positive, uplifting ones.

Put sticky notes around the house or your work area, or set reminders on your phone. Do whatever it takes to remind yourself that you are skinny, thin, fit, an athlete — use whatever words that resonate with you.

Tell yourself often, that you are fabulous and beautiful and incredibly sexy.

Say it out loud. Keep saying it all day, every day ….

And if you do this long enough, something magical will happen:

You’ll be moved to do what excites you, you’ll unconsciously make better food choices, and your “perfect body weight” will stabilize.

Tell me:

What words resonate with you?
