Excuse me, while I take a slight detour from my usual Manifest Monday posts. If you need inspiration, reflection, or motivation, feel free to read 1, 2, and 3 but this departure from your regularly scheduled programming is a good one. It is teaching me how to be grateful and appreciative of the little things AND the big things that make my life worth manifesting.
I lead a very fortunate life and the past week, I stumbled. I fell. My mood turned from rainbows, unicorns, and fairy dust to woe-is-me, despair, and a big bowl of awfulness. It trickled into my work, my home life, and invaded my psyche. It was caused reasons out of my control. In conclusion: I need to let it go.
So instead of manifesting something today, I am sharing 30 things I am loving right now. Things that make my heart swell, make me proud, and
:sings:: These are a few of my favorite things…
Watching my boys play Fall soccer and lacrosse / my new Starbucks Mermaid mug / pumpkin spice errythang / the Emmys and #blackgirlmagic / family date night / the new iOS update / Halloween-is-coming / my new Puma trainers / installing our new barn doors, a labor of love / green tea / the Utopia station on Sirius XM / taking pictures with my Panasonic Lumix / daily conversations with my mom / my home gym / watching my friends grow, be happy, and spread their wings / the Next Issue app / Moroccan spiced ketchup / vivid dreams that make you think hard throughout the day / my new retro Get Fit Diva tee shirt / red lipstick / stealing lunch dates with the Mister / my pup Yoda lounging in his Yoda costume all day / dine-in movie theatre seats / writing in my journal / lighting candles in my office during the day / mountain views from my bedroom window / zipping around with the music blasting in the R32 / reconnecting with old friends and letting go of one-sided friendships / fitting into my older son’s slides…bittersweet / planning another Disney & Universal Studios vacation for holiday break
Seeing this list makes me appreciate all of the great things going in my life and this isn’t even career-centric. Writing all of these fabulous things made me happy…I have so much to be grateful for and I am manifesting more gratefulness, love, and light to come into my life and to yours as well!
