Love Is...

 
“Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.”
1 Corinthians 13

  
In other words...If your in a relationship that is NONE of the above....It's probably not a mutually loving relationship.. just a thought!

It's a New Life.

Hard to say goodbye...
Change is never easy. I don't know why I haven't gotten used to it by now, my life has never stayed the same for longer then 18 months at a time. That's my record. Jobs. Homes. Addresses. Eighteen months seems to be the magic number for me since the beginning of time. I guess the only exception is the 16 years I spent in a relationship, but other then that my life is like the ocean; constantly moving, the shore line always eroding.

The past few months have been difficult, adjusting to a new life in Seattle. New school for Kanen. New job for me. New home. New town. New one-hour commute each-way. New traffic. MORE rain, more depressing black sky, day after day.

Inspirational Mantras

I think mantras are such a major part of finding success using the Law of Attraction. They are what keep you on the path when your otherwise discouraged. They keep you motivated when you want to give up and they help give you power when you feel weak.

I don't have any "rules" about mantras, I simply try to keep it simple and something I will remember when I need it. To me the key is to repeat it several times (at least 5) in a row when you need to "cleanse your mind" of negative thoughts. I kinda think of it like the coffee bean you smell at the perfume counter to cleanse your sense of smell. They are a quick way to wipe the "white-board" in your brain of the thoughts that are creeping in trying to get you to lose faith and focus on the negative instead of the positive.

Here are a few that I've used and that help give me strength and faith....

Ugh.

This hurts more than it should. 
I wish I could shake it off. But I can't. 
When you feel something for the first time, it knocks the wind out of you.
It stops you cold.
It changes the meaning to everything. Makes you look at life in a new light.
Makes you love every butterfly.

Life is Like Running

God I wish I looked like this running!
I went for an amazing run this morning, on the first sunny day we've had in Seattle since I moved here and had a thought.

The road I ran reminded me so much of my life the last few years. It had some really great down-hills where I could look at the beautiful scenery and just coast, turn up my iTunes and enjoy the amazingness of life. Then there is of course the up-hill climb that always follows a good down-hill coast right? It's just like in life, you can't ever get too cocky or confident in those easy beautiful down-hills because just when you do a nasty climb will be waiting around the next turn.

We just had some pretty scary weather here, so I ran over swampy roads filled with mud, areas that had been washed away by recent floods, debris filling the road...just like my 2011~!~ Lots of crap in the road that you need to be creative to get through, but NOTHING you cant get through. Nothing you cant hop or jump over or worst case run right through. Yeah you might ruin your new Nike's, and come out the other side of something unpleasant a little changed, a little more ragged for the ware but you CAN GET THROUGH IT.
