reSLience… a.k.a. resilience

it's what lies within that really matters

Category Archives: The Secret

It’s FRIDAY! My butt is tired! It has been a lonnnnnnng week. 2nd week of school for Dave and the kids, real work week for me after being on vacation and then traveling for work… and now… I have major projects/reports/etc due today.

Am I procrastinating? But of course!

I’m sitting lower and more relaxed on the couch. I’m only half way through my 1st cup of coffee. I could easily just spend the morning blogging and then look at the clock and wonder where the time went. I am stalking Joonie through her blog and never ending quest for self-discovery through quizzes. I am carefully trying to side step the very strong urge to take some myself.

I have been thinking alot about The Secret again -as you can see from my silly Spongebob post below. I found a cool widget to put on my blog sidebar (like I need MORE). And… I really really believe the Law of Attraction is alive and well. I don’t think it matters what religious background you are from or who you worship… what you think about and visualize and pray about… ultimately you bring about. So… with that in mind… I am going to picture me getting all my work nicely done let’s say… before noon? LOL.. .ok no LOL. Seriously.

Off to slay the dragons of reports and tasks left undone that must be finished before 5 pm today.


So… if this song plays over and over in my head… will it help? Does Spongebob somehow know the Secret and practice the Law of Attraction?

So… cleaning up the clutter never gets dull. Hard to anticipate what kind of gem you’ll find sifting through papers, preschool art, old math homework, and bills. Would you ever imagine I find the meaning of life? NO WONDER I have been so full of question, constantly unsatisfied and stressed!

According to the British Medical Journal, the citizens of Denmark are happier than their European counterparts, even though they rate high for the kind of factors typically affiliated with a LOW happiness rank, like bad weather, bad food, and high alcohol consumption. What’s their secret? Low expectations.

So… I’m going to chew on that for a while. I have a workshop this afternoon. I work from home this morning. I’m getting my kids ready to head out of town early with my dad. I have to clean the house. Maybe I just need to shrug it off and just show up? I am not sure I know how to interpret this. I am not sure I am even wired genetically to have low expectations – but dammit – if THAT is the secret to happiness I am all for it!

One other random thought… do you think players on World of Warcraft worry as much as SL Residents about leaving the game forever? Just an early morning thing to ponder while you plan your day with low expectations. WAIT… cancel cancel… you don’t plan your day if you have low expectations… DO you? I’m new to this… I need some help! LOL!

Happy Friday everyone!

I know Oprah set this into motion a little over a year ago. Every once and a while I find it really valuable to revisit the principles and take time to reflect on what kind of attraction I am using to bring things into my life. I’m really thankful for all things these days. Life is extra busy and hectic. Finances are tight. BUT love is abundant and family and friends are more important than ever.

HOWEVER, I need to use the core principles of The Secret and adjust what I just wrote. Life is busy and completely productive and I’m excited for all the opportunity coming my way right now. I have plenty of time to do all that I need to do and want to do. Finances are abundant. We have all the money we need to be happy and enjoy life. That suitcase of cash is just around the corner – I imagine I’ll find it any day! (heehee) Take a look and see what it means for you.

I thought for my friends in particular (including the ones in my own home) might need a healthy dose of glass half full. Cheers to abundance and good things headed for all of us.
