The Turning Tide........

Yesterday morning I made some choices.  I decided to not get crabby with my son while hurrying him along in order to catch the bus in time.  This allowed me to use my energy for love instead of anger.  Smiling is so much more fun than frowning, don't you think?

When I came back in the house after dropping him off I made the choice to go online, and was disheartened by an old schoolmate's reaction regarding an issue that is important to me.  I made the choice to use 45 minutes of energy trying to convince him to see things my way.  I was left feeling bitter, angry, and with a heavy heart.  I chose to leave the computer and go for a walk.

While on my walk I chose to dedicate the entire walk to thoughts of gratitude.  The first couple of minutes felt forced.  But within about 5 minutes the gratitude began to flow from me.  Soon, ideas of what to be grateful for sprang to mind faster than I could finish the previous thought.  Before I knew it I felt an extra spring in my step and a smile formed on my face and stayed there for the entire walk.  The thoughts of gratitude promoted feelings of love and wonder and awe.  I was happy.

I'm going to keep it up.  During the past few years I have been brooding over so many problems and negative situations.  What if I chose to think only on positive things for one month?  What would happen?  What if I thought of myself as a magnet for health, wealth, and happiness?

Ever heard of the Law of Attraction?  I've dabbled in it a few times in the past.  I have one amazing account to tell you about, one which should have made an immediate impact on me and motivated me to continue putting the law of attraction to use.  Read on...........

About three years ago we had two cars.  One was the 2000 Mitsubishi which we still own, and the other was a white Dodge Neon from the mid-to-late 90s.  The Neon was ready for retirement, and my husband had been planning to sell it but hadn't put a sign on it yet.  In the previous weeks I had done a bit of meditating and positive thinking, trying to put to use the Law of Attraction.  One afternoon I was upstairs, thinking, "Man, we really need to sell that car.  'Hey, Universe, you should really be sending someone to buy that car from us.  Someone should just come right up to our doorstep to buy it!'"  I swear, what happened next is absolutely  God's honest truth.  Within about 10 minutes, the doorbell rang.  I was upstairs, and my husband opened the door.  I heard the man outside asking if we were interested in selling the Neon.  There was no sign on it, remember!  He wanted to buy that car.  It was sold and gone within 30 minutes. 

Yep, it's time I put that back into practice.  The tide is turning for us, and I am SO incredibly happy and grateful!!!


  1. By the way, I just posted this about 10 minutes ago, and just now I made myself some tea. The little fortune on the tea bag says, "You must know that you can swim through every tide and change of time." How about that?!

  2. I'm a true believer in the power of positive thinking. I'm so happy that you things are starting to turn around for you. Wishing you the very best. :)

  3. Can you send a little positive thinking over to my house? My husband appears to have misplaced his somewhere in my clutter, lol. I try to be positive because I know that worry isn't going to change anything or make it better.
