“You’re one with all of Life. The more you love yourself and trust Life, the more that Life will love you, support you, and guide you.
We need to trust that we’re being taken care of, even though we’re not physically in control of everything that’s happening around us. We’re at the center of everything that happens in our lives. Every experience, every relationship, is the mirror of a mental pattern that we have inside us.
At any moment you have the opportunity of choosing love or fear. In moments of fear, I remember the sun. It’s always shining even though clouds may obscure it for a while. Like the sun, the One Infinite Power is eternally shining its light upon me, even though clouds of negative thinking may temporarily obscure it. I choose to remember the Light. And you can, too. Feel secure in the Light. When the fears come, choose to see them as passing clouds in the sky, and let them go on their way.
Affirm: I am not my fears. It is safe for me to live without guarding and defending myself all the time. When I feel afraid, I open my heart and let the love dissolve the fear.
Love is the opposite of fear. The more we’re willing to love and trust who we are, the more we attract those qualities to ourselves. When we’re on a streak of really being frightened or upset or worried or not liking ourselves, isn’t it amazing how everything goes wrong in our lives? It’s the same when we really love ourselves. Everything starts to go on a winning streak, and we get the green lights and the parking spaces. We get up in the morning and the day flows beautifully.
We need to love ourselves so that we can take care of ourselves. We have to do everything we can to strengthen our hearts, our bodies, and our minds. We must turn to the Power within, find a good spiritual connection, and really work on maintaining it.”
~Louise L. Hay
My last day of externship was October 20th and the clinic decided to hire me on the same day. I was very happy. I’ve been on my second week working at the urology office as an employee. Everyone’s been real nice and helpful as always. I’m not as fast yet but I hope to be soon. It’s been a bit frustrating at times for me because the doctors and medical assistants all have their own way of doing things. It’s hard which one to follow. I hope to have my own thing going soon. Anyways, I give myself two months to get everything down..
Wow! It’s been a while! So much has happened the last eight months. I decided to go back to school in February to become a medical assistant after not being able to find a job for so long. I was starting to get very depressed from not having anything to do. I was going stir crazy and driving my husband nuts. It didn’t take me very long to get back into school mode again. And I started seeing a big difference in myself, I was happy! Going to school gave me a purpose to wake up every day. Plus I loved learning! I got A’s in all my classes and met so many amazing people. I learned so much from all of them. Even though I was the oldest in my class, my classmates made me feel very welcome. Eventually I became everyone’s mother figure and we all supported one another. Going to school this time around seemed easier. I guess it’s because it was all about me. I was able to concentrate on my school work a lot easier. The hubby was real supportive. He has been my rock that’s for sure! Monday I will be starting my externship at a urology clinic. Yes I know! It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m hoping I find it fascinating that I will want to do it for a living. If not, I will do it until I get the experience and move on to some other specialty, maybe family practice. We’ll have to see. For now, I’m taking it one day at a time.
We celebrated my girls birthdays at my house as usual this year. We were going to go bowling but daughter #2 has a broken wrist from her accident. Hopefully it will be taken care of next week.. It’s been hurting her tremendously. Their birthdays fell in with football weekend so we decided to do finger foods this year. The hubby made a cheese plate along with some salami, and chips and salsa.. I made meatballs and little winnies… My parents brought Hawaiian chicken and fried rice. As usual we had way too much food. It was all delicious… And that’s not even including the cake and ice cream… :-)
As we ate we all watched football and screaming at the tv. It was pretty stressful watching the game.. Of course we lost but we all still had a lot of fun. Daughter #1 turned 29 yrs old and daughter #2, 27 yrs old… They grow up so fast, but I have enjoyed watching them grow up. Hard to believe I made it thru the teen years. I didn’t think I would for a minute there. The youngest gave me a run for my money that’s for sure… But she made it thru and turned out to be such a wonderful young lady.. They are amazing kids…

No one has the right to judge you. They might have heard your stories, but they didn’t feel what you were going through. No matter what you do, there will always be someone who thinks differently. So concentrate on doing what you know in your heart is right. What most people think and say about you isn’t all that important. What is important is how you feel about yourself.
You have control over your life. Don’t blame others. You have the power to change your life at any time and turn your worries into wisdom.
Live each moment in the service of a meaningful purpose.
Free yourself from the constant demands of your ego, practice to quiet your mind to be your very best.
Challenges are the stepping stones on your journey to help you grow. Look for the positive side of things.
You tell yourself a story inside your head every day. Make sure to tell the right one, the one that will help you get what you do want in life.
Give yourself permission to follow the path that makes you happy.
Remember to celebrate the blessings surrounding you and how far you’ve come, rather than focusing of what’s still left to be done.
The best you can do in life is follow your heart. Take risks. The people who can see how beautiful your heart is will never leave you.
