Dear Online Diary,
Everyday I wake up and immediately think to myself,
“Thank you for another day to be alive. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the wonderful things going for me.”
Sometimes I fall back asleep and drift between gratitude and dreams. Other times I get up, make myself a coffee, and physically write down all the things I’m grateful for.
In The Secret, Rhonda Byrne talks about giving off gratitude and truly feeling it. In my minds eye, I envision a wave of energy enveloping me and pushing off of me, into the world, to gather the things I want to receive. It sounds funny to say out-loud, but it’s the truth.
This can be quite difficult when I’m having a bad day or experiencing negative emotions. When I’m feeling down, or something hasn’t gone the way I’d have liked, I quickly think to myself –
“IT’S OKAY! Don’t freak out, the Universe is diverting your path for something better. Better is coming. Better is about to be received.
This is a miracle in disguise.”
Now – I’m the type of girl who has been known to shut the fuck down when things don’t go my way (I’m spoiled). I develop this evil stare that can pierce through people, and my energy grows dark, like a fuming green fire – that is hot and consuming – raging off of my skin, I, alone, can make the atmosphere thick. Staring, pursed lips, quiet, and if I do speak, it’s only to stab you where it hurts. People don’t like to be around that. Go figure.
It doesn’t happen a lot to where something really makes me this upset, BUT, bad days happen – I am only human – and when they do, I work very hard to keep my shit together. To only think positively, to see the good in what may look very grey; you know, silver linings and all.
For example, I work in property management, and I receive a great discount as a perk. Now the IRS is cracking down and for the second time living on-site a property I work at, my discount is being lost to taxes. Oh, taxes! The first time this happened, I was LIVID. I was un-understanding, irrational, entitled. I went through two moves within a span of six months – my mind & body were drained. I felt defeated.
It’s happening again. This time after only 3 months, but I see it very differently. I see it as, something great is about to happen and the Universe is shifting my life, to align with absolute greatness. I have to put in a little bit of extra work, a little bit of extra money, but something AMAZING is about to pop! Even though it looks grey now, I know I’m about to receive a freaking RAINBOW!
I can feel it, even though it hasn’t happened yet. That’s what good energy does though: it breeds more good energy. Gratitude is a very real thing, that will give you everything you have ever wanted and then some.
This experiment is amazing.
