The more we accept our darkness as one part of the picture, the more easily we can also allow and accept our light.When things go wrong, it is easy to get into a bad mood, and that bad mood has a way of spiraling out and affecting our life for days to come. In the same way, when we feel badly about ourselves, we tend to act in ways that have repercussions, again creating a negative vibe that can negatively influence the next several days. While it is important that we allow ourselves to feel what we feel, and to be genuine, we do not have to completely surrender to a dark mood or feelings of self-doubt. In fact, the more we simply allow and accept our darkness as one part of the picture, the more easily we can also allow and accept our light. In this vein, we can temper our grey moods with an injection of sunshine in the form of sending good wishes to ourselves for the next 24 hours.
If you feel a bad mood coming on or find yourself plagued with negative feelings, take a moment to acknowledge that. At the same time, recognize that things can and will change, and that you can still have a good day, or a good week, especially if you take the time to visualize that for yourself. This is a great way to support yourself when you are working through tough times and hard feelings. When you visualize good things for yourself, you are sending yourself love and warmth, as well as encouraging yourself to keep going.
Before you even get out of bed in the morning, you can take the time to send good wishes to yourself all the way through to the next morning. As you picture your day, take the time to fill in the details—where you are going, who you will see, what you will do—and send love and good wishes ahead to yourself, as well as everyone you encounter. It will be like arriving in a new place and finding that an old friend has sent a bouquet of flowers from back home to welcome you and remind you that you are loved. ~ The Daily OM
My hair looks AWESOME.
Jorgia stopped by the salon, on her way home from school to see me. I was nearly done...and she did not recognise me. I love it. I need to purchase myself a new hair straightener now though. Since giving Nicole my $400 GHD, and buying Jorgia her straightener for her birthday...they still BOTH have to take theirs with them when they go to Nick's and i end up having none. :(
For the first time in 3 years...my hair looks like it has been done properly, and not just at home. How exciting is that? I realise that i am the only person who is excited about this...but i don't care.
Nixon is pretty pissed about his new do...i think. He keeps shaking his whole self, like he does to dry off when he is wet...but there is nothing to shake. He is cuddled up on Billy at the moment...in protest, i think.
I left home at 8:30am this morning, and have been out all day. I'm tired. I have a busy day tomorrow, as well...and movies with the girls tomorrow night...then an exciting and relaxing weekend to look forward to.
I can't wait.
