I am having a great day! I truly believe we attract that which we need. We do not, however, always recognize what we need. I am on a journey of hope and expectation. I am 61 but I am not going towards the end of my life but rather towards a new chapter in my life. I do not know how I found Tools for Life but it will literally show me how to change my life for the better if I start each day with it. I want to be in pursuit of excellence, not just getting by.
I have started to attract things and people that are positive and helpful. I had been contacted some time ago by a fellow who wanted information on my father for his book and we met at my friend's place. I found him to be a very interesting man. I have been working at coming out of my cave of solitude and so I invited Hugh and his wife Patricia for dinner. I was so nervous as I had not had people over for dinner in many years. It was perfect. I had a nice little flower spray for the center piece on the table and the lasagna, which I got from M&M, was a hit. It turns out that Patricia goes to a buddist center that is not an advertised place. It is run by Tibetan monks and I now have the hours and address. What a wonderful thing to drop into my open hand.
Tonight I went to the gym to maybe lift some weights and definitely have a steam bath. I found out that a yoga class, given by a very intuitive woman who I know, was about to start. The class was very beneficial for my body and spirit. Then I had my steam bath. I look forward to more help from the Universe. I already have started to make good money and with the help of a knowledgeable investor I have started to build a stock portfolio. What is around the next corner?
This week I did go to the buddist monastry. It is run by a lama from tibet and the session lasted 2 hours with chanting and cymbals clashing and the sound of a singing bowl just before meditation. It was a wonderful experience.
I have now just finished the "tool time" for day ten and am glad to report that I have not missed one day!
I have not blogged for some time now and I have missed three days of Tools. No excuses, but I do have an explanation. I had to take over someones' work while they were on holidays and so each day I had two jobs to do and my karate.With all this action it affected my sleep and I was only getting about three hours a day. I was a zombie. The good news is that I am back on track and have added a fourth karate class in my quest for a slim and fit body. I have also enlisted the help of a nurse practitioner to help me plan healthy meals. I am learning to plan my meals ahead of time and, of course, drink more water!
I have not updated my blog for some time now. I am feeling a little overwhelmed by life. I feel that live is running me over and I can't get my balance. I am still doing Tools and I know that I will come out the other side of this tornado in time.
Fantastic news! I took my test for blue belt in karate and much to my surprise, I passed. Not only that but I was chosen as the best performing student of the term. The Sensei told me that the main reason for my award was my determination and strength of character. No one has ever given me such insight into my character strengths before in my life. I am blessed to be healthy enough to stay so active. The best is yet to come.
Fantastic news. I have been working on losing weight since the beginning og the year and this year I am proud to announce that I have lost 25 lbs. I am amazed.
