One of the “projects” that *A* and I are working on has to do with self-image. I have a difficult time keeping perspective when it comes to what I’m able to accomplish and pretty much ANYthing having to do with my own value. As I went around flipping calendar pages yesterday (it’s a new month!) that same topic appeared, unsurprisingly.
I said it when we first opened this one up, not sure how I feel about the illustrations here, but the thoughts are certainly appropriate. And timely.
With an affirmation and expanded message down the right side of the charted page:
“I am completely happy with myself – body and soul.
No newborn baby ever says, ‘oh my hips are too big’ or ‘my nose is too long.’ Infants know how perfect they are, and once we were all like that. We accepted our perfection as normal and natural.
As we grew up, we began to doubt our perfection and we tried to become perfect. We cannot become what we already are. We can only accept it. There is nothing wrong with us.
So let us again affirm and know that we are Divine, magnificent expressions of Life and that, really, all is well in our world.”
The way this is worded is one of the reasons that I enjoy Louise’s work so much. She’s direct and she’s clear. Today’s daily draw is very much the same way, concise and to the point, encouraging us to be the same way.
“Make a Decision ~
Feeling stuck or indecisive? Listen to your intuition and make a decision!
Sometimes life feels as if it is at an impasse while we await Heaven’s instruction. By drawing this card, however, Heaven asks, ‘What do you want?’ Sometimes the Universe asks us to be the decision maker, and this is one of those times.
Instead of passively allowing life to push you around like a canoe without oars, you are counseled to take charge and set your own course. Know that Heaven gives you all the resources you need to pull yourself out of any situation, as long as you make a firm and clear decision.
Your decisiveness is the catalyst for Heaven to clear the way for your manifestation. Let go of all fears or worries, and focus only on the destination you intend to reach. Enjoy the journey along the way!”
My first impulse is to recommend we all take a Quick Three Minutes with this message too. I’m being reminded that those few moments we devote to being clear and accurate can make a huge difference for the next (longer) weeks, months, and years to come.

Yesterday’s and Today’s Mileage:
together, because I never went back to update that last post. For many reasons. One being, I almost NEVER go back to things I’ve already written. So let’s just get current now.
On Friday my erranding took me for 9.137 miles at an average speed of 9.6MPH for 56 minutes and 57 seconds. Today was similar with 10.002 miles at 9.7MPH for one hour, one minute, and thirtynine seconds. (Also, it felt almost balmy out, high temp was 50 here in the valley.)
Last Night’s Baking:
was a batch of special order cookies that I’d been planning on making for days. Just didn’t have that block of time until after midnight yesterday.
These were not as stunningly near-perfect as the first time I used this recipe, but that’s probably due to the changes I made. Next time will be back to the original instructions. (I still believe in this one though.)
