“To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence.” Mark Twain.

I'm happy as a clam today. Really! Ahhh, it's wonderful feeling so enthusiastic!

I'm grateful for forgetting my purse at home this morning. Really! Because if it weren't for the extra 45 minutes of driving, I wouldn't have found the Mae CD I'd hidden away in my car. I wouldn't have experienced the beautiful morning, or a new exit off 575 I plan to use as often as I can, because it's gorgeous. Yes, happiness is as simple as an exit. :)

I tanned for an hour and listened to the Benton Paul CD I'd bought also. I'm picking up on a theme, wonderful days and wonderful music coexist, so maybe it's a sign! Well, afterwards I painted my toes and fell in love watching Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosslin fall in love!

I monitored my thoughts all day, and I found them drifting to a new friend. I'd always known her through other people, but never thought we'd hang out together because I had only seen the differences between us. Well, thinking about how excited I'd be to make new girlfriends, later at around 6 I got a few messages from her. Hows that for law of attraction?

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible." Walt Disney

Beautifully said.

Whenever a resistant thought occurs, it's important to toss it aside. Hitting a negative or resistant thought is just like a detour in traffic. A person can sit there for days until construction is done, or you can explore new territory through a detour and arrive at the destination intended, if only 5 minutes later than if the roadblock hadn't occured.

Or at least, that's my perception. Next time you catch yourself resisting, smile and think of a strangers roadblock analogy. :)

What am I grateful for today?
-Cumulous clouds.
-The hoola girl that wiggles alongside me as I drive and sing.
-The enthusiasm my best friend lives with on a daily basis.
-Living without resistance, and 'going with the flow'.

“What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.” Oscar Wilde

I can remember a time, two summers ago, that altered my life in profound ways. It was the summer I practiced The Secret. I had escaped a troubled relationship of 2 years and fallen head over heels for another boy; a feat I was sure to never experience. I smiled at everyone I met and radiated magic, and appreciated every single particle of matter in a way I'd never understood before. I was never critical, and the only assumptions I'd ever made were positive ones. In traffic, when someone cut me off, I said, "Be safe. I love you."

August of 2007 was the best time of my life, yet unknowingly I still lay unguarded to negative thoughts. Slowly, they would slink into my mind, crumbling the success and wealth I'd previously known. And by February 25th, 2008, my step father had died suddenly, leaving me completely estranged from an integral part of our universe: hope, faith, and optimism. 

A year later, I'm reclaiming my destiny and choosing to live brilliantly again. I am making a deliberate decision to appreciate my life, welcome the opportunity in obstacles, love and cherish people relentlessly, and challenge my mind to expand and to live vividly as it once has. This journal will proceed my positive thoughts and if fate has it my way, perhaps also inspire any person that crosses paths with it. ;)
