Happy Friday

Affirmation: I am ignited with powerful and passionate energy for life. I love life and life loves me.

Happy Friday!

I used to work with someone who would end her emails like that every Friday. She’s a very talented, insipiring and creative woman, and one of the nicest people to work with. Seeing “Happy Friday” from her every Friday always brightened my day.

Funny how two simple words can bring about a smile. Happy and Friday!

I’m off to wish everyone I encounter Happy Friday today!

Have a Happy Friday, and may you feel ignited with powerful and passionate energy in everything you do. Because you are worth it!

Check back later today I’ll post some of my results…

Love and Light

Say Yes!

Affirmation: I am open to the new people, opportunities and experiences life sends me. I recognize them by the sense of familiarity, comfort and safety I feel. I say YES to Life!

Ok, maybe I said YES to shopping today…

By no means do I advocate that shopping brings eternal happiness, obviously its a short fix. However, sometimes a little retail therapy does you good. Today, I feel my purchase went a bit longer than just an addition to my wardrobe though. Why? Well, I bought a pair yoga tights today from Clary Sage Organics. Like I said by no means am I advocating shopping, but I do definitely advocate supporting companies that are making a difference and helping Mother Earth.

What’s so special about these yoga tights? They are 91% PET (recycled plastic waterbottles). There are 6 waterbottles in a pair of tights. That’s 6 waterbottles that would have ended up in landfills. Now that something to say YES to.

Check them out at Clary Sage Organics.

Say YES to being ecologically responsible.

10 Ten Steps to a Brighter Day


Affirmation: Love is all around me. It comes in many different forms. Life loves and supports me.

I got some news today.

Not exactly the news I wanted to hear but it was an answer to something I’ve been waiting to hear on. Did it make me happy? Well, because it wasn’t the news I wanted to hear I can’t say I was super ecstatic over it, but the thing is, I’m not relying on these types of things to control my state of happiness. Instead I’m just accepting it for what it is and not letting it get me down. We often want the things outside ourselves to make us happy, but as you learn in every self help book out there and in life in general, true happiness really does come from within.

Our thoughts control how we feel, and if we let things we don’t like or don’t want to hear control how we feel then we aren’t allowing life to be the guide. Now I will say that despite the not so great news I got, Life did bring me something else that has the potential to turn into something very exciting. More to come on that on later date though.

In the meantime, in the present moment, I’ve got little Raidar Brown (as seen the photo above) sitting in my lap staring up at me as I write this. Now how could I not feel how much love life has for me? Knowing that life is giving me this much love is one of the most beautiful feelings in the world. So… if things are getting you down, if you are feeling a little unloved, mad, annoyed or just plain frustrated follow these ten steps. They always work for me, I dare you to try them. 

1) Stop!

2) Shut your eyes.

3) Take a big breath. 1 – 2 – 3…

4) Think of someone or something you love unconditionally.

5) Feel the love in your heart.

6) Now open your eyes and see what the first thing is you gaze upon. Maybe its a tree, a bird, the sun, a person, or even just some inaminate object.

7) Send love to it.

8) Feel the love you get in return.

9) See you are loved.

10) Now go about your day and take note of all the good things happening to you, no matter how small or big they may seem.

Enjoy your day! And may the littlest things turn into some of the brightest!
