Rejoicing in Joy.

             You’ve all read every book Christopher Moore has written  right?  What?  No?  You haven’t?  Okay, we’ll wait…….

             Maybe we can’t actually wait for you to get them at the library or your closest independent bookseller.  In the meantime, I’m going to carry on.  And reference a main character’s favorite phrase from the newest release.  “Oops, couldn’t be helped, nothing I can do about it.”

             That’s how I felt when I heard today’s message.  This situation is beyond me.  As I’ve said, we all just show up here to see what the Universe has to say.  Even me.

             The dream images I was shown this afternoon were symbolic, they were shadow visions of situations that Dan and I have been in when we couldn’t afford to replace some shitty item or another.  We had to:

make do with what we have/

work with what we’ve got.

             The overall attitude was like, here’s your assigned parts, no you can’t have that beautiful new thing, use these leftover bits of crap instead.  But everyone gets a prize, just for playing along.

             Because in the end, it’s all simply STUFF anyway.  None of it goes with us when we leave.  What makes a difference is how we react and how we manage and how we go on past these difficulties.

             Then, on our card altar we are shown that yes, attitude DOES weigh in to the way we live our lives.  We can choose the way we view things; we can go the negative way and complain, or we can select a more positive reaction.

             When we go the happy route we are immediately cheered up.  We see validations and gifts around every corner.  And the reason for this is that: thoughts and attitudes matter!

angel messages, optimism, guardian angel help

“Optimism  ~  Guardian Angel

You are right to be optimistic in this situation, as there is much to be hopeful about!  Your guardian angel has witnessed all of your hopes, dreams, and aspirations and knows that this new situation is a true answer to your prayers.  Your angel sees behind-the-scenes details about what’s ahead for you and is giving you the message that it’s all good.

Your optimistic outlook keeps you cheerful and pleasant as the situation unfolds.  Your positive nature is attractive and makes people want to help  you.  If others don’t believe in your dreams, don’t worry about it.  Stay upbeat and try to avoid naysayers

Studies show that optimistic people live healthier, happier, and longer lives.  Keep expecting the best out of life, because you will truly get what you expect.”

             So, here’s what we’re gonna do.  We are going to be really damn happy with what we are given.   We are going to be optimistic and positive.     We are going to answer all questions with loving and upbeat replies.  And we aren’t going to complain.

             (This might be more difficult than I thought at first, but I am totally going to do it!  Join me?)

  1. Trusting in the Universe: hell, I don’t even fully trust myself (yeah, issues from over a lifetime, so I have to slog through the work to get there — ugh). It’s on my mental-health to-do list. 🙂

    Letting go is another one. Control freak? Maybe a little.

    Learning to make do, to accept — working on those. My parents simply bought what they wanted (even if it meant more credit card debt), and so that’s what I learned. I’d be better off financially if I’d figured out not to do that at a much earlier age.

    Optimism is important, but there is a middle-ground between optimism and pessimism: some call it realism or pragmatism, It’s veering toward the positive side (because of those side benefits) but staying aware that things don’t always go the positive way. I used to be a complete optimist (this was many years ago). Now I’m more in that middle ground (when I’m doing well). For me, this middle ground makes it easier for me to be optimistic and positive.

  2. Good message, good card. Make it work! And presenting with a positive outlook makes it a bit better. Good thoughts to work with.

    First world problem resolved, with multiple trips to Jerry’s. And tinsnips. And swearing. And a bristle brush, vacuum and duct tape. And 2.5 hours. And more duct tape. At least it was tie dye duct tape.

    Good work today, both you and 536.

    • Yay! for duct tape. Don’t leave home without it! 🙂 I’m sealing a leaky crack in concrete with duct tape (industrial grey for the out-of-doors) until such time as we get another warm spell (yeah, right) or spring gets here. 🙂

  3. “I choose pleasing and prosperous thoughts, therefore I am pleasing and prosperous. I am healthy and I am happy! (Dammit.)” 🙂 I couldn’t help laughing when I read this because an image of you shouting “Lovingkindness” at passing drivers just popped right into my head. I know, they have nothing directly to do with each other, but that’s where my head is at today!

    And now I have to go surf the net to figure out how to get sticky gooey Badge Magic off my son’s uniform before a big Eagle Scout do on Tues. night. *sigh*

    You put those together because I said them in the same voice. Well done!
