November’s Mantra: I AM GRATEFUL!

Happy November my lovelies. How often do you practice gratitude? I try to practice gratitude daily. With Thanksgiving approaching and the horrible aftermath the East Coast is facing with super storm Sandy, it’s an appropriate time to step it up a notch. Therefore November’s Mantra is “I am grateful”.

Being grateful is a key to happiness. Being grateful lets you see what you have in a new light. Gratitude brings importance to the small things in life, opens the door to new possibilities, and brings optimism to your current situation.

At this moment what are you grateful for? Say out loud the first three things that come to mind. I am grateful for the roof over my head, my mom and my creativity.

How I will practice gratitude this month…

  1. I will make a gratitude list and add to it daily
  2. I will start to make a gratitude scrapbook
  3. I will devote 5 minutes when I wake up and before I fall asleep to meditating on gratitude
  4. I will write hand written gratitude letters to people dear to my heart

How will you practice gratitude this month? What are you grateful for today?

I am grateful for you my darling readers. Have a fabulous day… love and light, Emily

Owning your Awesomeness

What if we lived a life in which we accepted ourselves just the way we are? What if we accepted other people just the way they are? What if we took it one step further and replaced accept with love? Just imagine if we didn’t live life striving to be someone which we can’t be. A square peg cannot fit in a round hole.  And why would it want to?

Too much energy is placed into believing the way we are is not okay. It’s as if there is a rulebook which we follow and check in with as to what we can be or not be. Our parents, society and friends all influence this rulebook. Ideally this so-called rulebook would be tossed away, ignored, forgotten, but that is not possible. How can you throw away ideas that are so deeply ingrained in your mind? Even if these ideas are false. Since we cannot just simply throw away these false ideas we need to learn to accept the we are. Not the way society wishes us to be or anyone else wishes us to be. Love and accept your race, your gender, your sexuality, your love handles, your insecurities, your freckles and everything else! It all makes you a part of who you are.

You are perfect just the way you are. You are beautiful just the way you are. There is only one of you and that’s pretty freakin awesome!

Gypsy Soul

I have a gypsy soul. I am a dreamer. A wanderer. A creator. A lover. A artist. All I want is to travel the world endlessly. I dream of a simple life. A free life. I dream of a gypsy life. I have a gypsy soul.
