Reading an email from a friend that was negative and self-pitying, I felt compassion rather than anger. She said that I was “annoyed” with her, and I responded that the feeling was “frustration.”
Relaxing on summer break, guilt-free!
Feeling a sense of accomplishment as I declutter the guest room.
Having a window air-conditioner on this hot, hot day.
For my dogs, who love me unconditionally!
Having a phone interview with the dean of the ministerial program I am applying to.
Finishing the application to the program – ready to mail in the morning.
Enjoying Pilates tonight – my body felt strong.
Finishing the final project for the Self-Mastery class I have been taking at the Idyllwild Center for Spiritual Living. That feels good!
Watching my son Matt graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance – so proud!
Not being too embarrassed that I cried.
Enjoying the party at his father’s house.
Getting along with my father at the party.
I complete the tasks before me with ease, grace and joy.
I’ve been enjoying the first week of summer break, and I appreciate:
*getting started on the application for ministerial studies through Holmes Institute (Centers for Spiritual Living).
*Sleeping, reading, watching reruns and DVD movies…
*Hanging out with friends.
*Seeing my sons for dinner
*Exercise and weight loss.
I embrace new opportunities today.
Today I easily complete all necessary work, enjoy my colleagues, and start preparations for closing my office for the summer. Hooray!
Grateful for a fairly easy workday. Students were busy with end of the year activities, so I had time between the ones who did show up to finish some paperwork.
Grateful for my parents who gave me a gold and diamond ring that my dad gave my mom years ago. They wanted to honor my 60th birthday, and it was a very touching gift. I finally brought the ring to a jewelery store to be sized today.
Grateful to make it through Pilates tonight. With this new eating plan, calories are more restricted, and I really felt the loss of energy, but I made it!
It’s a long weekend, and I am doing exactly what I want to do when I want to do it!
Today I am grateful for my two adult sons, who are at turning points in their lives, career-wise, and are making the most of it. I’m so proud of you both!
I am grateful for this lovely three day weekend, for good weather, and for returning energy to do things around the house. More plants to plant!
I am thrilled as I look forward to the last week of school for this year, and I am ready to enjoy summer!
Today I meet any perceived challenges with love and compassion, melting them away!
I breathe freely and easily, knowing that today I make my own choices and my own happiness.
I am grateful that I decided to stay home today. Breathing is strained, too much coughing and not enough sleep. This day I will rest!
I greet the new day with joy in my heart, knowing that all is provided.
I am so grateful for this Friday – it went smoothly, it’s the end of another work week, and I have the weekend to rest and recover!
My sons are both available for dinner tomorrow night.
The kids in the special day class shared things they like about each other. It was a positive love fest!
I enjoyed watching and talking about the progress my students are making.
I see myself done with the medical test, and on the road home with my driver/friend. And so it is!
Grateful that the fashion show and tea went well, and that I did fine with modeling – no falls!
When I started feeling sick, I excused myself and went home. Good thing, because I really was sick.
Taking today off, resting, reading, getting well.
Not able to go to dinner with son #2, but he understood and we will reschedule. I love my easy-going sons!
MRI is tomorrow morning, and I do not feel nervous. Thank you!
The work week is done – let the play begin!
Getting some unexpected free time today to accomplish more.
Getting my hair cut – lovely!
Talking to my son and enjoying his contentment.
Breathe, and enjoy the journey.
My friend and colleague Michelle made it through breast cancer surgery. Here’s to complete healing!
Checking things off my list at work.
My mom called to check up on me. I was able to tell her the date for the MRI. I’m feeling better about it.
Trying on clothes after work for the fashion show on Saturday. I had fun and felt girly!
A teacher friend confided in me about her son telling her he is gay. We had a good talk and a good cry, and she felt safe talking to me.
