Happy 101 Award

Happy 101 Award.

Anamaris at Chef It Yourself gave me this award.

Cool, eh? Good friends give on to others. They share the love and wealth and cupcakes. And so, the rules for this privilege are to

a) copy and display the award on one’s blog.
b) List who gave me the award and link to their blog
c) List 10 things that make me happy, and
d) Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know.

OK, a & b are done. Now for C = Happy Time

  1. My husband Barry, he is funny, sexy, free to be himself, crazy, authentic, wise and my friend.
  2. My grandchildren are so fun and funny just being who they are.
  3. My Favorite Japanese restaurant, oh yeah Japan.
  4. Jogging.
  5. Coffee and red wine and chocolate.
  6. Art, stationery supplies, and fabric including yarn.
  7. A clean orderly house.
  8. My garden and trees.
  9. This blogging adventure.
  10. Being fit and healthy.

Now to pass this on to some of the blogs that make me happy.

Tenets Of The Other Worldly Housewife she hasn’t been posting lately. I wish she would for my own selfish reasons.

Robin at Life On It’s Own Terms for its authenticity.

Steve at Japan Living Arts. He takes some of the most exquisite Japan has to offer and shares it.

Ramble Time Reinvented for her clarity of focus and excellence in setting boundaries.

Bat’s meow for her freedom to be herself.

I Am Java Mama for her authenticity.

Thank you all for lighting up my day.

Have your best day ever!

Once I went to water aerobics and felt social anxiety. I observed myself thinking things like, other people don’t like me. I stopped those thoughts and asked for the ‘light’, the energy of the universe to fill me. As I did the exercises, I envisioned light coming out of the ends of my limbs and spreading through the water to the others. Then instead of feeling anxious, I felt like I was contributing and in that I felt worthwhile just being who I was and doing the class.

Before that I was caught up in thinking that because I didn’t want to join in other group activities that they would reject me.

I was after a way to feel that I am enough and that I have something of value to offer. What I got was a sense of oneness where being enough isn’t an issue.

In the above example, my demands on myself changed from thinking I had to do more activities to be accepted by the group; to feeling content with doing this class and knowing I was sending positive energy to all. In that, I was acceptable to myself and acceptance by the others didn’t matter to me.

GOT LIGHT? by J.B Vadeboncoeur

In the last post I mentioned sending ‘light’ whenever I found myself obsessing about a situation.

What it is-
Regarding asking for the Light, you could also call it; saying a prayer, turning to a higher power for help, a relaxation technique, or many other things. What is this ‘light’ you are asking for? I think of it as grace or aide. I think of it as asking the universe for an energy of assistance. It is benevolent and will never come where it is not wanted and will never inflict itself. It is very open and is there for the taking, IF it is asked for. It is always available to all for the asking. It cannot be used to attempt to cause a certain situation to happen. It does what it does, but is not to be directed in particular ways. Be open to it and observe the blessing it is for you.

How to do it-
One way to do this is to stop and exhale for as long as you can and still be comfortable. Then slowly exhale your next breath for as long as you comfortably can. As you exhale, imagine the tension and stress are leaving your body.

Hold the intention that you will be protected and ask that only what is for the highest good for everyone concerned will come forward. This is to say that you let go of any desires of your own about what will happen. For this study, don’t ask for any particular thing; let go and ask for the best for all to show up, ask silently, inwardly for the light.

Then be present with it. Do not try to make anything happen, rather allow what comes. In this place, in this energy, you may become aware of more options. You may find yourself expanded in awareness.

Hint: Observe as an infant does. Look at poo the same as diamonds.

Do you already use the light? Please share any experiences you have with this?
