Are You For Real??

This post is in response to a reader Jim's comment on Good News...Everything Happens For A Reason!
I have added him as a friend on Facebook and he asked how it's possible that I can go through the difficulties I write about on my blog (no job, no home for a few weeks ect) but still post on FB that I'm doing great things like going to expensive places/fitness classes ect. He feels that the me of FB and the me of this blog are different. (Feel free to check out his comment on the link above).

     Thanks for your feedback I appreciate it. I love that you asked this question because it's something that I want to make sure that all my readers understand, so your timing is great!
     One of the things you will notice if you read my blogs, especially everything I have written about the Vision Board, is that it doesn't take MONEY to live the kind of life you want. What it takes is faith and belief in magic.
      You will notice that my Facebook says the same thing that my blog does, that I have been without work since the beginning of May, and was out of our home from June 2nd until this past Sunday (I have lots of photos and posts daily on it).   Anyone is welcome to friend request me on FB, I always accept and welcome new friends. My life in an open book. I update my status constantly, and I have the link to friend request me here.

Good News...Everything Happens for a Reason!

So I've been talking a lot about having faith the past few months. How that even when we are going through difficult times (financial burdens, job issues, relationship struggles, heartbreak..you name it) we can still stay in a positive vibration and trust that the Universe knows what it's doing and that everything will turn out the way it's meant to in the end.

I chose on purpose to open my recent struggles up to you. I felt there was no better way to demonstrate the principles I've been talking about than showing you how I've been applying them during this personally challenging time.

It was a difficult thing to do.
I'm not going to lie.

Give Me Bikram Yoga!

So these last 2 weeks living in the Red Cross hotel, have been very trying. Trying on my kids, trying on my patience and faith. Just plain difficult in every way. It's now been 2 weeks that we have been displaced because of a flood at our home. We have been living out of a tiny hotel room, no kitchen, 2 small double beds...I don't like to focus on negative but it's only fair to say that this has not been pleasant to put it mildly.
  
There have been two things that have kept me for losing my mind in this situation:
1. My strong unwavering belief in The Law of Attraction
2. Bikram Yoga!

Yoga...
Other benefits of living in a hotel include but are not limited too:
  • Someone else making your bed for you
  • Endless amount of free time on hand to do things like clip a zillion coupons and learn how to be an extreme couponer! A skill I imagine I might want to keep.
  • Lot's of time to hit the gym, as they have a daycare and it gets us out of said hotel room!

Sarah's Thoughts: Dating Advice: How do I move forward?

Reader Question:
A women who wants to move on from a man who doesn't want a relationship, when she does. She is struggling with letting that go, it's consumed her feelings and taken away her motivation. She wants to know how to change form a negative place and move into the positive.

My Thoughts....

Thanks for your note. Men are the heartbreak of our lives aren't they! I don't know why they torment us so much but they really do. They can take up all our mind share and make us unless to ourselves! Believe me I know!

How to Find Your Dreams Again.

Reader Question:
She is a mother of 2, married. Though she loves her children deeply she cant help but feel a loss in her life of her dreams, ambitions and aspirations. She gave up her career to be a stay at home mom, but is now back to work part-time and loving it. She still feels like she is trapped to a degree in a life absent of the fun she used to have..

My Thoughts...
I can so relate to these feelings. The last three or so years of my marriage I felt the very same way. Like I had planned all these grandiose and amazing things for my life when I was younger but woke up one day and was in this dull, stressful boring life. I was someone I couldn't recognize on any level. I was 60 lbs heavier then I used to be, I was filled with self-loathing, depressed and stressed to the max. Even my basic personality had totally changed, from the life of the party to a homebody. I felt my connection to my husband had vanished over the years and I spent day after day at home with no one but babies to talk to. I literally felt like I was losing my mind.

Have Faith.

Faith can move a mountain...
If you are a frequent reader of my blog then you have heard me talk about how "everything happens for a reason" and to "trust the Big Picture", and this week I've been amply reminded of why both of these are my life motto's.
     
See when you unquestionably believe both of those statements, then you are at a place of peace. Even when you are being tested and fear starts to creep in, you can rely on your faith to get you through those moments of doubt and mental corrosion.
      
I'm not saying I haven’t had a few of those thoughts this past week. This has been the most trying week maybe ever for me. It was a time of total uncertainty. My three children and I were at the mercy of the American Red Cross, essentially homeless waiting to see what the verdict would be, see if we could go home or not. As a parent it has been terrifying I'm not going to lie.

"Thankful" By Oprah

*this was posted to my FB fan page...and was just want I needed to hear today to recharge my faith batteries 

"I live in the space of thankfulness - and I have been rewarded a
million times over for it. I started out giving thanks for small things, and
the more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased.

Show Up.

It's funny how when your successful, happy and on top new people are drawn to you. They want to know what your secret is, they want to be around you. Then some of your old friends turn to silent haters. They pretend to be happy for you, but secretly they wait for the day, when you once again fall. They cant find it in themselves to truly support or be happy for your success.

But it's even funnier to me how few people show up when you are in trouble. When you hit a rough patch, when they watch you struggle. Crickets.  All the ones who were so happy to know you last month scatter like cockroaches when the light goes on. No one wants to be associated with you, no one wants to look you in the eye. It's like your body is covered in contagious poison that could be passed on through any type of contact. Everyone wants to pretend they aren't rubber-necking watching your train wreck, yet they are glued silently. It's interesting to me how few offer a helping hand, and those that do offer it quickly with a prayer that it wont be accepted. The rest just say "you can do this, your strong this is nothing to you".

Don't Count Me Out.

Don’t count me out just yet. 
Thank God for the Red Cross

Many of you know my story, know the road I have been on the last three years in an effort to rebuild my life. It’s been putting one foot in front of the other every single day, good days and bad. I’ve been able to grow and learn so much about myself. In the process I found hope and faith and learned to trust God and the Universe to deliver me out of difficult situations and to lead me in the direction that is the vision for my life.
