With all of my “improvements” and change-your-brain work, I know that I have come far. But often, I realize that some shit just don’t get better. Like my relationship with time, as one fer-instance.
Not that this bothers me much, because it doesn’t. I just need to understand what can and cannot be altered. Me showing up tardy, that, apparently, is carved in stone. It’s nearly a full week, and I haven’t shared my new calendar pages. (One of them I just flipped yesterday.)
This one comes with an affirmation, which I’ve already proclaimed several times (like whenever I walk down that hallway).
“I am a radiant being of love.
Deep at the center of my being, there is an infinite supply of love.
It is inexhaustible. I can never us it all in this lifetime. So I do not have to be sparing with it. I can always be generous with my love.
Love is contagious. When I share love, it comes back to me multiplied. The more love I give, the more love I have.
I have come into this world to be a lover giver. I came into this world full of love. And even though I will share my love all my life, when I leave this earth, I will still have a full and happy heart.
If I want more love, then I have only to give.
Love is, and I am.”
I have never been disappointed in anything that comes from Louise Hay, or her publishing company. This is no exception. It wasn’t the selection I set out to make, originally. But it has turned out to be so perfect.
When I woke up today, again our message and my intention (aim for Happy ) were right there and ready to applied. Generously.
doesn’t matter what we call it,
it’s the spark that runs through us all.
Interestingly enough, I was then guided away from our regular rotation on the card altar. But, as I read through the definition, not surprisingly.
“God Of Reflections ~
The qualities you see in others are simply your own reflections.
You are giving away your power because you fail to recognise and acknowledge the many wondrous qualities that you possess. The qualities that you admire in others are simply reflections of the same qualities within you.
Yet often, you falsely believe that others are better than you in some way. It is now time to let go of this belief and allow your beauty, talent, and creativity to shine through.
From now on, every time you see beauty in another let it serve to remind you of your own beauty. If you recognise success in another, check to see how success also exists within you, and so on.
As your perceptions are brought into balance, you become a more effective force in the world and have more impact on those around you. By acknowledging all the beautiful qualities that you already posses, you open the door to an endless stream of abundance and blessings which stem from the heart of creation.”
This one is a lesser-offensive illustration, especially if you do what I did, blur your eyes a little, looking only near the top, and just enjoy the nice colors. Because, on the other hand, the message has terrific promise.

Today’s Kitchen Adventure:
was a joint effort. By which I mean, the idea was mine, the work was all Dan’s.
The ones at the bagel bakery are better. But I needed some NOW, and they don’t always have them on hand (also, there’s the whole, it’s going on 10 p.m. thing). I’ll be checking in with them more often though, just to make sure I don’t miss an opportunity to get the GOOD kind.
The ratio* needs to be tweaked, as far as I’m concerned. And it DOES matter if you buy name-brand products. It does, it just does.
*3 Tablespoons of butter, 4 cups mini marshmallows, 6 cups cereal. We made half a batch. And should have used more marshmallows.
