Life is good!

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Even if it's a rough day, you have to look at life as being good. After all you are still living, which means there is a purpose for you being here. If there's a purpose for you being here (even though you might not have yet figured it out), then there is still something yet for you to do or learn. I figure any day that I get to wake up and have the opportunity to change how I am living or embrace how I am living is a good day. It's about putting things into perspective and not allowing the negatives to be in charge.

On that note, I'll start my day with a grateful heart.
My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful that Garry and I had the opportunity to meet up with my brother last evening as share some time together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for the pain in my knee as it reminds me to be grateful that I have feeling and mobility. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm grateful for the sun shine as it warms up the earth and melts all the snow. It's a great reminder that life is a cycle and nothing is forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful for an up coming three day weekend and the reason for the celebration. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful for having a great job to go to even if I have to get up so early for work. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm grateful for the opportunities that come my way each day to practice what I've been learning or to continue to learn. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful for having all the necessities of life and a few of my wants thrown in there too. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for living in a "free" country where I have freedom of speech, freedom to make my own choices and freedom to worship as I am lead to worship, and most of all I am treated as an equal. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful for the joy of being able to read, I can't even imagine my life without books. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful for my friends and family without whom I'd not be the person that I am. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Nearing the end of March

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

It's coming close to an end of another month. I can't say that I have done a whole lot other than maintaining this month. I'm not complaining though as I would rather being maintaining than gaining!
I see my surgeon for a consult next week and hope that it won't be too long after before the surgery is done. I'm so looking forward to being able to go for long walks and swimming once again.

My Gratefuls:
1. I'm grateful for the mobility that I do have and that by modifying how I do somethings, I've been able to still get a good amount of steps in each day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I'm grateful for having had 4 days off work to rest my knee somewhat and only a 3 day work week this week, before another 3 day weekend. What a life *grin*. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I'm so grateful for the sun shine that brightens up my day and makes me feel energized. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I'm grateful that today is payday and I can once again get all the bills paid. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I'm grateful for technology that allows a person to share pictures with their phone. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm grateful for the freedom to make my own choices. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm grateful for my vision board that reminds me to stay focused on my dreams. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I'm grateful for having a yard that once the snow leaves, I can plant a veggie garden. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I'm grateful for my kefir that helps to keep me healthy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm grateful that I have been granted another day of life, help me to make it the best day yet. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Time for routine again.

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

My lovely 4 day weekend has drawn to an end and it's back to work for me. But what a great week...only 3 working days and then another long weekend due to Easter. A person could get used to this *grin*

I really needed some down time and feel so much better for it.

My Positives:
1. Although I had an on again off again sleep last night, I'm ready to face the day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I had a chance to feel like Susie Homemaker yesterday, a nice crock pot of stew and some loaves of Amish Cinnamon bread made. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Reassurances that life is on track. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. A beautiful sunny day once again yesterday, supposed to be this way for the rest of the week. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I got the income taxes all done and made a good start on de-cluttering stuff that was in storage. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. Garry had a great report from his specialist yesterday. It appears that everything has healed well, he may have some issues with swelling off and on for the next year, but that is normal. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm learning to stay focused on my dreams and not to worry about the details. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have a new day ahead of me to continue to improve and do better in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. My family and friends support and encourage me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I'm blessed with health, love, and all that I need. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great Tuesday.
Hugs,
Wanda

I'm working on continuing to move forward.

Monday, March 25, 2013

I've been at a stand still for so long now, it's time to really get moving forward again in all areas. It seems like as I'm working on one area of my life the others all slowly grind to a halt. Multi-tasking is not something I am doing well when it comes to me!

It's time to get moving in all areas.

My Positives:
1. I have greatly enjoyed and was in big need of some time off. These past few days of recharging my batteries have been so good. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I have one more day of not being at work, and although I knew I needed to get up early this morning so that I could go to sleep early tonight, I'm okay with that. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Garry see's his specialist this morning and we are trusting that it will be all good news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. Only one more week until I see the surgeon for a consult. I'm expecting good news there also. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I have slowly but surely been de-cluttering and putting things aside for a garage sale this spring. It's great asking myself questions as I make the decision to keep or not keep. "Have I used this in the past 2 years, If there was a disaster, would I save this item?" It's a real mind opener to give yourself honest answers. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I have time today to go and stock up on some fresh veggies and fruit for this week. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I'm finding it much easier to keep an open mind about things that I am hearing and learning that don't necessarily resonate within. I'm able to just let them go as not being for me, but they might be someone else's journey. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Signs of spring are in the air...the sun is shining and although no melting is occurring as yet, the birds are beginning to sing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. The solar lights that we have outside on the front veranda posts are still on this morning! That means the they got lots of light yesterday to last themselves through the night. Woo Hoo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. The blessing of being granted a new day of life, to start afresh today, to be all that I have been created to be. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a wonderful Monday,
Hugs,
Wanda
