MY EXPERIENCES WITH CREATING ABUNDANCE — I Can’t Afford To Judge Myself.

Plumeria

If I judge myself in any way, for instance that I am not enough, just as I am, then; I start projecting that out on others.

To forgive my judgments of others, I need to forgive the root problem of judging myself first. If I keep in a state of forgiving myself and accepting me warts and all, then my life is much easier and clearer.

I am enough.

MY EXPERIENCES WITH CREATING ABUNDANCE — Leave Things Better Than You Found Them

Plumeria

Once I started keeping a focus of leaving things better than I found them, a new level of self-seteem came in. It is a subtle thing. On some level, it feels very good.

Most times what I do, is something very small, like pick up a piece of trash or straighten something up. If I can’t find any little thing to do, I leave a prayer.

Of course, the choice about what is better is subjective. That’s part of the fun. You get to decide what that is.

So many good things have been happening. Did you see this? OMG!

On a separate note, Holly over at Holistic Wellness With Holly Worton. had this post and my week has been so joyous since I took up her suggestion. Her posts are very good. I see them as a treat for myself and I am savoring my way through them. This one, it came at just the right time for me or something. Read it for yourself and See if it works for you too.

For me it catapulted me into doing more things I love, and one of my favorite side effects is I am too busy and happy to overeat.

Have your best week ever!

TRAVEL JAPAN — Toyoko Inn Shijo Omiya

When I arrived at my hotel in Kyoto, the lady who checked me in asked if I was familiar with their key system. When I said no, she showed me a display and stuck the key fob into an angled slot. Okay “whatever, ‘ I thought.

I took the key and went up to my room, happy and tired. I used the key to open the door and went inside. It was pitch black. I couldn’t get any of the lights to work. I propped the door open for some light and set about trying all the switches in every different configuration I could think of.

Pushing aside feelings of helplessness and failure that pecked at me, I knew there must be some simple explanation, some simple trick to it, like trying to work a computer. Once you know it, it’s easy.

There was an angled slot on the wall and it had a tiny indicator light on it. It was the same as the display at the front desk. I stuck the fob in and voila – lights.

Instantly I went from feeling inadequate to adequate. Life is good. I can do this – get into my hotel room.

This is the Western style room I stayed in at Kyoto.

If this trip is like my others, I become heightened aesthetically. I can hardly walk down the street without exclaiming at the beauty in the most ordinary of objects – a leaf, a crack in the sidewalk. I want to live in this place of heightened appreciation of the beauty that is everywhere.

This is my favorite thing about Japan, the effect it has on me.

Enjoy the beauty in your life today. XD

Being very disgruntled about things today means I NEED this meme today.

*

Five things I am happy about are:

1. On vacation I released another 5 pounds and now weigh 17 pounds less than I did in early 2010.

2. I easily fit into some previously tight shorts today.

3. I am feeling deeply contented and happy after visiting family.

4. Most of the mangos on my tree waited till I got home to ripen and my coffee beans are ready for me to start harvesting them.

5. Hubby and I are going for a swim. I love to feel the water surround me.

*

Have your best week ever.

THE WOMAN IN 203

I’m on vacation and have turned the comments off. Thinking of all you readers, when I am not distracted by the beauty of family and friends. Have your best summer ever.

Kacey97007

I was 16 the summer before I went to nursing school. I worked in a local hospital, in the dietary department.

*

One of my tasks was to collect the menus from patients.

*

Almost fifty years later one patient stands out in my memory.

*

Why her of all the others?

*

The only time I saw her, she sat in a chair at her bedside table. She looked elegant in a long robe. She was slender, older and alone.

*

There was a single rose in a bud vase on the table and she was writing.

*

When I came in she looked up and smiled at me. Not an ecstatic smile, just  a fleeting hello, an I greet you as an equal and am mildly curious smile.

*

When I got back to the kitchen there was a big hubbub. The director had arranged for this lady to have frog’s legs for dinner.  A co-worker saw my look and said,

She’s dying.

*

She’s dying? The epitome of elegance. For my hair to look like hers would take a whole can of hair spray. If I wore a beautiful robe like hers, it would probably have a bleach spot or two on it.

*

I think the reason she has remained with me still is that she was in total acceptance. She was not trying to do or be anything. I think she was mourning herself purely, past the denial and bargaining. There was something very powerful in that place.
