Well I was just bursting with joy and energy yesterday! As I wrote about, the contact with author Peggy McColl and invitation to her book launch (an event I've always dreamed of being a part of)... Well the day didn't end there!
Through work I met with a sales rep (Amy) from Minto Suite Hotels and part of her package included, just for me, a complimentary night's stay there and I thought - HOW COOL IS THAT? It's in town but it's good until Dec 31st of this year so I am not sure when I'll use it but will for sure use it. Perhaps for the evening of our "Christmas Dance". Amy and I also had a great conversation - non-business related and it felt so great just 'connecting' with someone on such a comfortable level. It's like I could go out and have fun with this person!
Then the facilitator from our retreat met up with me to deliver a CD of a photoshop/show of our Retreat set to music! Well what a great treat that was. We met with the VP to wrap up and provide feedback on the overall experience and it was very positive. My participation on the planning committee was very beneficial (and I came on board replacing someone who was leaving - and was very new).
Then I participated in a free WEBINAR offerred by IAAP's Office Pro on the "Productivity Puzzle" and WOW what a great presentation about getting ourselves organized and getting things done - both at the office and personally at home. I came away with many tools and affirmations of how I'm actually doing a lot of the suggested actions... and as a result my life is getting more and more organized every day. I am freeing myself from clutter at every opportunity and I can't tell you how much this has changed my life.
From the disorginzation and avoidance that was my life before I moved here... as I avoided because of my financial burdens ... didn't want to look at the paperwork, and kept piling things and avoiding...
Oh and the sweet end to this FANTASTIC Day was when I walked in the door and found the mail. Today - I received my Bankruptcy Discharge Certificate! It was in effect August 1st but to receive it today well what a sign of true 'liberation'... It's DONE!! Now I have to contact the credit bureaus to fax them a copy of the certificate and my financial life / slate is wiped clean to start anew!
I was on such a high... I still am... I walked at lunch and bounced along almost lol and then took another beautiful walk to Brittania beach - and the sailboats as I walk onto the path is an amazing sight... I must bring my camera to share the beauty with all of you.
I had my 4th day AF and felt so wonderful ... my evenings when I'm AF are spent doing productive things, getting the next day's meals ready, lunches, and my evening finished with writing in my journal all that I was grateful for and listening to a soothing music CD.
Perfect day in every sense!
Oh - and the scale this am - down to 165!!!
Happy Friday Everyone!! What wonder awaits us today?!! Get out and MAKE IT HAPPEN!! You are in control of your own destiny - turn your switch ON.
