Best Day Ever
I’ve decided that today is the best day ever.
Did I win the lottery or step on the scale to reveal I’ve lost those ten extra winter pounds I’ve been meaning to get rid of? Has the COVID pandemic suddenly vanished? Nope, nope & nope. 😆
I did, however, sleep again last night. That makes two nights in a row that I got 8 hours of sleep.
My intention isn’t to get all braggy on you, but hot dang! Two. Nights. In. A. Row!!!!!! 👏🏼 🥇
It is truly amazing what sleep can do and let’s face it, we need adequate rest to function properly, much less feel inspired and mentally sharp and sound.
In addition to sleep, I’ve been working on some much needed internal spring cleaning in the form of detoxification and clean eats. Today only makes Day 4, but I’m already feeling the difference, like woah! 🥳 I can’t see it in the mirror yet, but I’ve finally realized it’s much more beneficial to focus on how I feel and in the end, if I eat well and take care of myself for long enough and stay consistent, it’ll be reflected on the outside as well.
”..my intuition keeps nagging me to remember the importance of raising my vibration...”
”... like attracts like...”
Speaking of feeling, my intuition keeps nagging me to remember the importance of raising my vibration whenever possible, because like attracts like and joy attracts joy.
Like most of us I’m sure, I’ve been on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster over these last weeks of this pandemic, and a lot of my moods haven’t been pretty. From blahhh, to being forced to face more of my demons, it has been rough at times! I even had a full-on hypertensive crisis after being triggered by a simple conversation with someone from my past, which just a few years ago would have likely put me in the hospital. 🙄
The beauty of those feelings and events is that once I work through them and can again see the light at the end of the tunnel, I’m able to see them for what they are, and that is lessons.
“... I truly believe that all the trials we face are lessons...”
I truly believe that all the trials we face are lessons and in the end, however horrific they were, they can and will help us to become stronger, more compassionate people and if we’re lucky, we can help others thanks the knowledge we’ve been blessed with.
Oh boy, does it not feel like a blessing when we are amidst it! But as I sit my freshly showered behind in my daughter’s fluffy purple bean bag, I can reflect on these weeks and months and years and see how frigging far I’ve come and truly appreciate the simple things, such as a clean hiney, clear brain and pep in my step. 💃🏼
I‘m able now to allow myself to be triggered and feel the feels sans shame, and best of all, doing so helps me to move onto a better feeling sooo much sooner!
Back in the day, I’d get trapped in an icky emotion for eons before desperately clawing my way back out. Unfortunately, I often resorted to self medicating to deal or numb out, booze being my poison of choice.
I’d be fibbing if I said I always refrain from alcohol, but the thing is, I no longer drink to shove down my emotions, but instead to celebrate or unwind with my honey. I’ve admittedly noticed that I still tend to want to have one more than I need to feel good, but I recognize it and am forever working on it. I’ve actually recently made the decision to take a bit of a hiatus from it, because why not? My liver will thank me. Plus, drinking lowers my inhibitions enough that I‘m tempted to eat all the things, and usually do. 😳
Instead I’m able to appreciate my nice clear brain and feel into the bubbly mood and warm fuzzies a good sleep has provided, and hopefully use this energy for good. 😈
One of the most important things I’ve learned on this tumultuous healing journey is the significance of our thoughts and how they affect our moods, actions, and outcomes in every single way. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of thinking about what we want instead of what we don‘t want.
It is A-okay to feel like utter turds and to bitch and moan about it for a minute, as long as we pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and bring it right back to gratitude. Because there is always, always something to be grateful for, and no matter how crummy things might seem in the moment, practicing that gratitude is helping us to attract even more abundance. We can get ourselves back to the better feels in no time.
”Let‘s continue to raise our vibration..”
Let’s continue to try to raise our vibration by finding and implementing the things that make us laugh and feel light, happy, and peaceful.
It is ok to feel good even while those around us might not and actually, we are doing them more of a favor by emitting our good vibes, because joining in on the sad or angry energy isn’t helping them to feel better; it is only helping them to stay trapped in their suffering.
So lend an ear and support for friends or loved ones and then bring it right back to good feels whenever possible.
If we do so enough collectively, we might just be able to get through these turbulent times all that more peacefully and dare I say, joyfully.
I for one vow to keep laughing, being silly, trying & failing to learn guitar, 😂 and forgiving myself for my mistakes and occasional poopy moods.
Life is pretty good after all. I have my health, a roof over my head, food in the pantry and people who love me by my side.
By the way, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to all the essential workers during this time. We are forever indebted to you. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
(And did I mention I slept last night?! 😬)
I hope you‘re having the best day ever! ❤️
