Day 12, Counting My Blessings

I have been feeling out of sorts this week and I didn’t post yesterday. I feel like my  emotions shot off into space and needed to get reeled back in. I am not sure if this is a side effect of moving the clocks ahead or just my life in general at the moment. If any one missed reading a post from me yesterday, I apologize. I hope to make up for it by counting two separate blessings today.

Today two separate friends told me that my seminars and our conversations  have helped them in their lives. Talk about a BLESSING! That is so what I needed to hear today. One friend was able to comfort her daughter in a way she never would have been able to verbalize before. This made her feel great and that she is changing a generational pattern. Another friend said that simple changes in her mindset allowed her to view so many things in her life differently. She was able to see areas of her life that weren’t working and, (drum roll please), change them. This makes my heart sing, truly. I know that we are holding ourselves in negative patterns not because we are stupid, bad, self punishing, or selfish, but because it is habit. Letting go and fully living your best life is so much about learning new habits that serve us where we are right now in our lives.

It's never too late to change direction.

My other blessing, and this is not just a throw in or back up blessing. This is a full on, Thank God I have this in my life… my husband. He is so supportive and kind. For someone who doesn’t have a huge vocabulary in the nuances of feelings and emotions, he almost always has just the right thing to say. He really does have this talent. He shares it quite freely with people throughout his life. Lucky me. I am married to some one who says, “Don’t stress”,  “Don’t beat yourself up about it” , or “You always do a good job.” I hope you have people in your life who do the same for you! We should all have a fan base of people who know we are great, and will remind us if we forget.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Your ambidextrous comment made me smile. I too need to change bad habits, and not just the physical type but the emotional and mental kind. I have gotten into a pattern of negativity caused by life’s stresses. I need to work on this area of my life and not sweat the small stuff, but rather focus on the positive and make changes for a better life. That’s wonderful that you have a loving, supportive husband who is there to lift you up. I am blessed in this area as well. My husband is my best friend and I love him dearly. We are always there to pick each other up when we start to drag ourselves down. Thanks for the lovely post – a great reminder to change things we don’t like about our lives. We have the power to change our course, we just have to begin the journey. ~Vanessa
