Welcome weavers! ILY big time. As the temperature starts to descend, my inspiration to write and share seems to ascend. I think it’s something about the cardigans and cups of tea that Autumn brings. Standing in your cardigan/ Kissing in my car again/ Stopped at a streetlight/ You know I miss you (Taylor Swift “Betty”).As I’ve been getting back into the routine of working, working out and working it, I’ve discovered and rediscovered some tools and tricks that have been helpful for me and thought I’d share with you dear reader.
Well, I tumble outta bed and stumble to the kitc’hen/Pour myself a cup of ambition/Yawn and stretch and try to come to life (Dolly Parton “9 to 5”).
Highly accurate Dolly but I’m now trying to set a more peaceful pace for my morning. I’m setting the alarm a wee bit earlier and following the steps that Hal Elrod calls SAVERS in his book, “The Miracle Morning”. SAVERS stands for: silence, affirmations, visualisation, exercise, reading, and scribing. I’m currently enjoying a 10 min meditation (S-V), 20 mins of exercise (E), writing a few scripting pages (S), reading a few pages of a personal development book/ watching a vid for inspo (R). Current faves are Boho Beautiful Yoga Meditations, Move With Nicole Pilates and videos by OhMyAnnie/ Life By Lucie. For the A-bit, I’ll say something to myself while getting ready that captures the vibe of the thing like, “I’m positive and peaceful”. And, of course, a large cup of ambition is consumed too!
You spin me right ’round, baby. Right ’round like a record, baby. Right ’round, ’round, ’round” (Dead or Alive “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record).
Sometimes working in a service role, you come across a disgruntled customer or two. When someone snaps at me or is abrupt or rude, I can take it to heart and ruminate on it but I’m getting better at spinning it. When I start to think things like, ‘I’m crap at this job’ or ‘I can never help anyone’, I question whether it’s true and try to start spinning it by reaching for a better feeling thought. ‘There are aspects of the job I’m good it’, ‘I have been helpful to some customers’, ‘I’m learning more each day’, ‘that was more about their day than me’, ‘they are getting free books regardless’, ‘I enjoy being here’ and eventually the gloom lifts a bit and I can baby step my way back from the brink. Abraham Hicks reminds us that we always have this choice to reach for a better feeling thought: “I can complain or I can appreciate. I can find fault or I can look for positive aspects. I can remember things that irritated me, or I can remember things that please me. I can look for your flaws or I can look for your positive aspects. And in every moment in time, I’ve got an Upstream or Downstream Choice.”
From little things big things grow/From little things big things grow (Paul Kelly “From Little Things Big Things Grow”).
Little things really do make a big difference like; listening to my Happy Playlist in the car rather than the radio which is full of interrupting news and ads, doing EFT at the traffic lights, putting my vision board on the fridge and putting my phone on silent.
How are you manifesting a marvellous March? Love and light xxx Yvette
