Some of the people that I dont care for have taught me the biggest lessons. It is like they were a blessing in my life. It sounds weird but I think it is true. Some of the worst circumstances also have taught me so much. I learned so much from dh dying.

Really trying to stay positive. Kind of easy to do today

So lately lot of things have been bugging me. The dress shop, my sister, work… A friend was talking to me. It all boils down to me not feeling important. All of the things that those people did made me feel not important. That is why it bugged me so much. So glad I understand that. I always feel better when I figure it out.

I need to realize I am important. I dont need others to tell me that or show me that. I dont need people to be nice. I am still important and wonderful.

Its just so hard to not take things personally. The four argreements is great. I need to reread it again.

I hope someone finds this helpful. Whenever I am scared, fearful, or angry I write out exactly how I feel. I then ask my angels, guides, spirits, … to come take it from me. I then burn the paper until it is gone. I always feel better afterwards. There really is something about it. Especially the burning part. That is one of the important parts. Giving it over , seeing it gone. One day I wrote about my inlaws and the hell they put me through. Now when I think of them I dont feel the anger or bitternes. The thought of them doesnt bug me. And they did a whole lot of mean nasty things to dh and me.

I feel more relaxed afterwards every time I do this.

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark
One : Don’t miss the boat.
Two : Remember that we are all in the same boat.
Three : Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
Four : Stay fit When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
Five : Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
Six : Build your future on high ground.
Seven : For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
Eight : Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
Nine : When you’re stressed, float a while.
Ten : Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
Eleven : No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting

I am reading a book called Ask and It is Given. It is by Esther and Jerry Hicks. It is about manifesting what you want. It has exercises for us to do to get what we want- better health, love, job, blessings… It all comes down to attitude. You attract what you think about. We are magnets. We attract the good and the bad that we think about it. I do think some stuff does happen too. Death for example. But anyways I believe in this. Time and time again I will take a look at my life and see how it is going. If something is not working I adjust my attitude and then it seems to straighten out. I never believed all this when I was introduced to this kind of thinking and living. But now I do. I have seen it happen so many times.

Examples
1. Everyone told me I could never plan a wedding in such a short time for the date I wanted. I told everyone it will all work out fine. Guess what I got everything I wanted.
2. I made a list of the man I wanted. Guess what? He found me. He has exactly what I had on my list of wants and dont wants. Because I thought about my dont wants I got them too. But it is ok. I love him dearly.
3. My health improves when I believe it will. I will be healed.

This kind of thinking takes a lot of refocusing. It takes effort but with practice it becomes easier! It is life changing.

Today I got an engagement card. It had a powerful verse on it. It says “We have no say over the hand dealt us in life, but we do have a lot of control over how this hand is played.” It then says”It wasnt always easy, but you worked through the hard times and overcame the obstacles and here you are with a whole world of possibilities awaiting you. It was from the lady that made my quilt from my husbands clothes. Wasnt that so sweet of her? The card and her thoughtfulness really spoke to me.

This spoke to me today.

Anger Can Lead to Bitterness
Day 73

Your perspective on people and life can become poisoned by bitterness. Bitterness never makes things right, never satisfies your heart, and will always block your journey through grief. See bitterness as your enemy and flee from it.

Dr. Tim Clinton says, “Resentment is anger with a history. And bitterness? A lot of people become bitter over life’s issues. It’s often said that when you’re dealing with hardship and hurt in your life, and great pain, you can either become bitter or you can become better. Challenge yourself always to let God do a work through you so you can become stronger and more effective.”

The history that bitterness dwells on is like a stack of IOUs of what you think people should have done and how situations should have worked out. The only way to be free is to tear up the IOUs and let the bitterness go.
Bitterness prevents you from being able to receive God’s free gift of grace.

“See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled” (Hebrews 12:15 NASB).

Lord Jesus, remove the poison of bitterness from my life, and let me see Your good work in this situation. Amen.

No one has the power to hurt you or make you feel terrible.

I never really believed this but it is true.

Everything is up to us. It all depends on our thoughts. Do we take things personally? Do we believe others will always be rude? Are we mean to others?

It is a hard lesson for me. I always have a but.. But she is.. but she said… It really doesnt matter.. It is about me, what I think, what I believe about me..

We are magnets. What we think comes true. What we fear comes true.

Thoughts travel instantly. We have over 60,000 a day. And yesterday we had many of the same ones that we have today. We need to guard them carefully.

I know many of you may this is wacky but it is true!

For the past month my tailbone goes in and out. It messes up other body functions. I never had a problem with it before. during the night I get out my Louise Hay book. It talks about the mental causes for physical illness and the metaphysical ways to overcome them. I looked up tailbone. The mental cause for sacrum is loss of power and old stubborn anger. The coccyx is out of balance with yourself, holding on, blame of self and sitting on old pain. HMMMMMMM Holding on.. sittin on old pain. Who does that ? Not me. Yeah right. That has been my issue lately.REALLY struggling with it. Every week something happens. Lights blow, I hear songs, my sister gives me a cd…. So today I asked myself to get rid of these mental thoughts and to believe that I need to live in today and love who I am.
