the universe said – let it go

i love the freedom working from home gives me.
i don’t do it often, but oh how i love it when i do.

today, when lunch time rolled around…i got into my work out clothes
and went to the gym and spent my half hour off – doing some cardio.

i loved it!!!!

when i got there, i forgot to take my sweatshirt off – i suppose because i was so cold

i see other people all bundled up working out and think to myself – my lord that person is going to die from the heat…how do they do it?!?!

but it was good!!!  i sweat more – and so i felt like i got more out if it.
it was great – and the place was a ghost town which is even better!
i got home – and went back to work.

it was a productive week.

now on to completely unrelated news…and a shout out to the universe:

as i was in my car today – i looked up and looked at an air freshener i’ve had for years – seriously – at least 5 years.
my ex had given to me it as a gift of some sort.

obviously it didn’t work as an air freshener for the longest time…but i loved it.
it is a little stiletto heel – and i have never been able to find one like it…
so i kept it – for its cuteness factor.
i have zero sentimental attachment to this thing…it’s just something i like to look at.

so as i was driving i was just wondering to myself if i should just throw it away
yeah it was cute – but it wasn’t anything i needed…and i don’t want to hold on to things that have no place in my life (like gifts from ex’s)

as i pondered this for a few minutes, i looked up at it – and literally in that exact moment
it fell off my rear view mirror and on the the floor.
the part that held it there completely disintegrated.

i guess i got my answer ehh?
another lesson in letting go.

i love me some universe!

hope you all have a great weekend – it’s going to be a good one!!!

words to live by

i have seen this several times and loved it every single time i read it.  i tend to delete forwards i receive, but something made me open the forward i got last night…and this writing was the forward.  i also found this posted on a friends facbook this morning.

i think the universe is trying to tell me i need to spread the word 🙂  Enjoy:

“Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.

Stop running from your problems. – Face them head on. No, it won’t be easy. There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems. That’s not how we’re made. In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time. This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.

Stop lying to yourself. – You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself. Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest with ourselves. Read The Road Less Traveled.

Stop putting your own needs on the back burner. – The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too. Yes, help others; but help yourself too. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.

Stop trying to be someone you’re not. – One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you. Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

Stop trying to hold onto the past. – You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.

Stop being scared to make a mistake. – Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing. Every success has a trail of failures behind it, and every failure is leading towards success. You end up regretting the things you did NOT do far more than the things you did.

Stop berating yourself for old mistakes. – We may love the wrong person and cry about the wrong things, but no matter how things go wrong, one thing is for sure, mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us. We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future. Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.

Stop trying to buy happiness. – Many of the things we desire are expensive. But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions.

Stop exclusively looking to others for happiness. – If you’re not happy with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a long-term relationship with anyone else either. You have to create stability in your own life first before you can share it with someone else. Read Stumbling on Happiness.

Stop being idle. – Don’t think too much or you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place. Evaluate situations and take decisive action. You cannot change what you refuse to confront. Making progress involves risk. Period! You can’t make it to second base with your foot on first.

Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

Stop getting involved in relationships for the wrong reasons. – Relationships must be chosen wisely. It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company. There’s no need to rush. If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.

Stop rejecting new relationships just because old ones didn’t work. – In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you. But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you.

Stop trying to compete against everyone else. – Don’t worry about what others doing better than you. Concentrate on beating your own records every day. Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only.
Stop being jealous of others. – Jealousy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own. Ask yourself this: “What’s something I have that everyone wants?”

Stop complaining and feeling sorry for yourself. – Life’s curveballs are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you. You may not see or understand everything the moment it happens, and it may be tough. But reflect back on those negative curveballs thrown at you in the past. You’ll often see that eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation. So smile! Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday, and you will be.

Stop holding grudges. – Don’t live your life with hate in your heart. You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate. Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.” It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.” Forgiveness is the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself! And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it’s for you too. If you must, forgive yourself, move on and try to do better next time.

Stop letting others bring you down to their level. – Refuse to lower your standards to accommodate those who refuse to raise theirs.
Stop wasting time explaining yourself to others. – Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe it anyway. Just do what you know in your heart is right.

Stop doing the same things over and over without taking a break. – The time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.

Stop overlooking the beauty of small moments. – Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things. The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.

Stop trying to make things perfect. – The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done. Read Getting Things Done.

Stop following the path of least resistance. – Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile. Don’t take the easy way out. Do something extraordinary.

Stop acting like everything is fine if it isn’t. – It’s okay to fall apart for a little while. You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well. You shouldn’t be concerned with what other people are thinking either – cry if you need to – it’s healthy to shed your tears. The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.

Stop blaming others for your troubles. – The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life. When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility – you give others power over that part of your life.

Stop trying to be everything to everyone. – Doing so is impossible, and trying will only burn you out. But making one person smile CAN change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world. So narrow your focus.
Stop worrying so much. – Worry will not strip tomorrow of its burdens, it will strip today of its joy. One way to check if something is worth mulling over is to ask yourself this question: “Will this matter in one year’s time? Three years? Five years?” If not, then it’s not worth worrying about.

Stop focusing on what you don’t want to happen. – Focus on what you do want to happen. Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story. If you awake every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen in your life today, and you pay close attention, you’ll often find that you’re right.

Stop being ungrateful. – No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing”.

exactly what i needed

everything happens for a reason.  things come to you for a reason.  nothing is coincidence.

for example, out of the blue my godfather popped into my head…and wouldn’t go away.  after a full 24 hours of tears and sadness and never-ending thoughts and conversations with my godfather (who passed away almost 4 years ago) how is it that a car…that appeared to go out of it’s way to cut me off…would bare the license plate “godfather”?

coincidence?  i don’t believe in coincidence.
i believe in signs.  i believe he was saying – hey kid i’m right here!

So i was on google today…looking for something rather specific…and instead found this…and i knew it was exactly what i needed to hear today.

maybe i didn’t find it…maybe it found me.

inbox lovin’

the universe sent me a beautiful email reminder this morning.

How could i not share this with you all.

Never regret love, goddess. No matter how blind, it improved your world view. No matter how foolish, it made you wiser. And no matter how generous, it made you more.

Hubba, hubba,

Happy Monday!

i love her

the universe that is.

i got an email from her today…as i do every single day.  I have for years.

anyone i meet, i tell them about these emails…and how they can receive these messages as well…

so many people i know are connected with her now…and i will continue to spread her message.

she knows me well…as she addresses me as “goddess” 🙂

this was her message for me today:
How adventurous would life be, goddess, if you were “challenge free”? If you had the perfect body, perfect self-esteem, everyone adored you, and you won the lottery every Sunday?

Not.

Now what if, painful as they may temporarily be, you could choose a life during which challenges might arise whenever your thinking needed expansion, on the sole condition that every one of them could be overcome no matter how daunting they may at first seem?

Everything makes you more,
The Universe

Besides, goddess, everyone adores you anyway

she seems to tell me the right things at the right time.
I love me some universe!

universe and u

did anyone else watch the season finale of Dancing with the Stars last night?

this is the first season i have actually watched this show.  i absolutely loved it!!!  (other than the lame singing)

i was/am a Kirstie Alley fan – big time.  i love that woman…she just seems so real.  and my god the woman did a cart wheel.  that just commands respect!!  i would totally hang out with her.
seriously…it was amazing how much she accomplished…i would watch her and think to myself there is no way i could ever do that.
she didn’t win…ya know…the trophy…but i think she came out a total winner.

i was in awe watching these people dance.  i am jealous of anyone that can dance, that has rhythm…
put me on a dance floor and i would so rock you with my 1990’s moves lol

these people were fluid…the way that they moved…it was as if their bodies were born to move that way.  completely beautiful.
and their bodies????  rock hard gorgeousness!!!!

i have always wanted to take dancing lessons.  always.  this has put the fire under my butt once again.
if time allowed…i would seriously consider looking in to classes.  Did you know that they practiced  5 hours a day for the show??????
a couple of friends and i discussed taking hip hop classes a while back…but that never did pan out.
(let me just say these were my thoughts last night)

so…believe it or not…the next part of this is completely related.

i was in a deep sleep a few nights ago.  for some reason i passed out watching something on the country channel…i can’t remember what i fell asleep to…but i am guessing Everybody loves Raymond…or Criminal Minds – although i don’t think Criminal Minds would be on the country station.
annnyyywaaaaays.
my point being…i am not an avid watcher of the country channel.

well something that night woke me from a dead sleep.  it was a song.  a country song.
i sat up in bed and tried to focus.  there was something about that song…
i stayed up long enough to catch the artists name and fell back asleep.  i woke up in the morning and completely forgot. (this is why i need to start writing things down again!)

it bothered me for days.  who was the artist????  why couldn’t i remember?

as i was sitting there watching DWTS last night – i was turned away from the tv, multi tasking but of course…
and suddenly…there was that voice…it was her!  i was given a second chance 🙂
thank you universe!!!!

i woke up this morning with a touch of dancing envy from the night before.  wishing and hoping i could shake my hips all sexy like.
I checked my email this morning – and do you know what was waiting for me in my inbox?
of course you don’t – what am i saying…
anyways….
i received an email from a local dance school – offering me 86% off 10 dancing lessons.
no joke.
coincidence?
i think not.

the universe is in love with me.  i get small glimpses of just how much every single day.
if you pay attention…if you throw out in to the universe, the universe throws back 10 fold.

and if that weren’t possibly enough…the first status i saw on my facebook this morning was:

Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion. ~Martha Graham

true story.
i couldn’t make this up if i tried.

it used to surprise me when i felt like my questions were answered…from something bigger out there…
that things i silently asked for with a pure heart…and strong will…had the potential to become a reality.
that the universe offered me all the tools i needed…to reach my goals…my desires…my dreams.

if you listen…you will hear her too.

the universe is in love with me…
and i am in love with her.

Now…click here if you want to hear the song that haunted me for days!!!
