Slow and Steady wins the Race!! Well that's what my Chick told me :)

A wise 7 year old little person once said to me when I was driving a bit faster than I should have to church one day "Slow and Steady wins the race"(Aesop) momma (chick)!"  Of course, I immediately slowed down in part due to shock from the wisdom that came from "out of the mouth of a babe"(Psalm 8:2) for sure , and because she was right.  Most importantly I have now started hearing voices in my head... little ones repeating the same little quote I guess to remind me to slow down and savor this impending victory that I have set a course out for.  But WOW how SLOW it has been.  It is all my fault, I cannot blame anyone for my delay in progression.  So the lesson of accountability has begun.

I cannot say that all has been lost, I did start walking, noooo it has not been daily but in my mind I do walk daily.  The times that I have walked have brought me great pleasure.  The more I think about the events or lack there of, I realize that a lot has to do with me being so disorganized.  I don't know where it began, but I do want to know where it is going to END!  So little by little I have begun clearing a lot of things away.  One of the things that I have done, is start letting go of the past.  For those of you who recall one of my earlier posts Self Disclosure of a Love in MIND, .  That post was very real and life changing.  After I wrote that post in many ways I began to live again, and at the same time see things from a different perspective.  One of the things I realized is that I was keeping things that in essence were like bricks that continuously held me down.  For example despite having let my Love go for this individual was a major step, but after finding a letter that I had once written to him, I realized that the process of elimination was not yet complete.  The good that did come out of it is that throughout the years when I would stumble upon the letter, I would sit and read it and of course allow it to depress me.  This time without any hesitation of any sort I ripped the letter up and threw it out.  What an Empowering Act of recovery!  The best part of it all was that there was no sign of regret for doing it only joy.  Now I am not going to lie, he does run across my mind from time to time, but I quickly dismiss the thought with love knowing that it no longer serves me a purpose to constantly reminisce about things that are long gone. 

I may ruffle a few feathers here who believe in the school of journaling, but I find that these are bricks that form and become weights of your past on paper.  Like my never delivered love letter, a journal is just a reminder of the pain that one has now trapped for later revision.  Don't get me wrong though, when I journaled about some of the strange dreams I had in the past and when I would come across those journals, I was quite surprised to see how some of the dreams that I had in some way or another manifested.  So I guess (for me that is) I now choose to journal about positive things vs. the negative.  I no longer want to dwell on my past hurts, I want to Keep it Positive and most importantly keep it Grateful!!  Since I have a different approach towards journaling my gratitude I find that wonderful things have been happening.  I cannot explain it other than internally I feel my spirit shifting and I feel more at peace.  One major reason is because I have made my focus to be God centered.  You can center it on what makes your feel good, I have just chosen to center my attention around God.

I guess the lesson that I have to share today is to start freeing yourself!  Start running with the wind instead of against it for it will always slow you down when you do.  Personally I find that I have often tried going against the grain and took pride in doing so, yet lately I have realized that not matter how you run toward the wave, it will always knock you down or cause you to duck and cover.  Embrace what is NOW and LET GO of what was.................

Less than 12 hours away from 1 week into the new year and I ask myself "what have I done so far"? Truth be told, I have started taking steps towards achieving my goals for this year. I am so excited yet I feel that my ADHD has kicked into overdrive because I am trying to start all of them at once. So with this being said, the biggest challenge to date will learn to be how to be patient, take one step at a time and trust in God that everything will come in it's right time. But so far these are my goals and what I have started: Wanna See??

Okay so now, I have laid the foundation down and with this now in mind I can get ready to Rock for the New Year!

First and foremost, I want to thank you for coming and visiting my Blog. I truly hope and pray with all of my heart that you are in some way touched by my words. I don't want to sound all wishey washy but you know what I mean. Therefore, I look forward to us having some fun. Please make sure that you send me pictures of yourself doing what you are setting out to do this year and I promise to post them. I also want you to send me updated on your progress. I want to make sure that you get the Praise that You deserve!
So in Week on of this New Year, I have started walking. Walking for me right now, is the best form of exercise, one my endurance improves I will incorporate other forms of exercise. I have also started eating more salads which has always been a challenge for me as I have not really cared for veggies all that much in the past.
Along with exercising my body, I have also started exercising my mind. One of my favorite topics is the Law of Attraction. To me this is very fascinating. The ability to set an intention into the Universe and see one's desires manifest is incredible. All things are Possible through God!
I really don't like to read, but I will make an exception for him. This week I have been reading one of his books that purchased on Itunes called Wow I love my IPhone!
"The Key to Living the Law of Attraction"
I love what he says in this book. For those of you who have seen the movie the Secret by Rhonda Byrn, you will recognize some of things that he says as they were also featured in the movie. One of the most important things that I am taking away from his book is how we say things. There are power in words for sure and we must be careful what we say and how we say it. As a single mother, I realized that one of the things that I had found myself saying to my daughter is that I cannot get her this or that because "we cannot afford it" Wow... bad, bad, bad... By saying those 4 words, we I was setting myself up for potential ongoing lack of abundance. Therefore now I try to find other ways of saying things that have positive undertones vs. things that carry negative energy. Trust me, read the book and you will see what I mean. Case in point: until the last few days, I would walk into my daughter's room in utter disgust and demand that she cleaned her room because it looked like a pig stye. What I now say to her is "I love when you straighten up your room, it looks so nice in here and you do such a great job". If I had only done this sooner, day before yesterday, she said to me I am going to clean up my room. I said okay sure that would be great. Not really thinking that she took what I had said to heart. Crash, Boom, Bang!! I was so tempted to go look, but I told myself I would wait until she was ready. Sure enough, she called me when I was ready. I went into her room; the vibration of the sense of accomplishment could be felt in the room. I was so happy to see what my little girl had done. More than I had expected. As a result of my reaction, and the re organization of my thoughts and words, my little girl responded in ways that I was not anticipating. The best part is that ever since, she has been keeping her room clean. Perhaps you might think this is small, but part of the law of attraction, is to see the beauty in the smallest of things. One of the major actions that Mr. Canfield suggests is the having the "Attitude of Gratitude".
I like to take it a step further, Just be Mindful and be Thankful!
Just start off right there. Keep in mind all that is around you, and be Thankful for where you are at that very minute. This very act alone sets the tone for things yet to come.
Below is the book that I am reading now. Mind you, I am not getting paid to put his link on my page, I am just doing it because I simply think it’s a great guide to get you up and running for the New Year!
Hope to hear from you soon!
God Bless!
