In Optimism There Is Magic


Shrinky DinksThe Fun Report:

Yesterday my parents (bless their hearts!) took me out on a 15-minute excursion for the first time in a long, long while (to the pharmacy, wheee! )

While I was there, I decided to explore the drug store for something playful and fun that I could get for my inner child.  I saw something I used to looove as a kid – A pretty little pink box with ShrinkyDinks in it. Ha!   I decided to treat myself. How delightful is that?

Take a 10-minute joy break. What can YOU do today to take your inner child out to play?

Note to my beautiful friends:

Part of strengthening my listen muscle is paying attention to when it feels good to be on the computer and when it’s time to take a break. I’m looking forward to getting better and better at that. Blogging is a reeeeeally good playground for this because when I’m here, I find myself wanting to go check on everyone and say something to them and be here forever and ever and ever! (You know it’s true!)

Thank you so much for your comments and messages! I absolutely adore hearing from you 😀 and will always write back, always.

And now … some words of inspiration and encouragement!

“We’re asking you to trust in the Well-being. In optimism there is magic. In pessimism there is nothing. In positive expectation there is thrill and success. In pessimism or awareness of what is not wanted, there is nothing. What you’re wanting to do is redefine your relationship with the Stream. We do not ask you to look at something that is black and call it white. We do not ask you to see something that is not as you want it to be and pretend that it is. What we ask you to do is practice moving your gaze. Practice changing your perspective. Practice talking to different people. Practice going to new places. Practice sifting through the data for the things that feel like you want to feel and using those things to cause you to feel a familiar place. In other words, we want you to feel familiar in your joy. Familiar in your positive expectation, familiar in your knowing that all is well, because this Universe will knock itself out giving you evidence of that Well-being once you find that place.”
