Today I am grateful for my glasses – may they rest in pieces :o)

In 2011 I was homeless. Cocoa - Furby - Honey

Me and my two large dogs lived about 2 months in a parking lot, in a car that didn’t run.

When I was homeless, one of my biggest fears, and there were a LOT of them, but one of my biggest fears was breaking my glasses.

EVERY – SINGLE – TIME that I dropped my glasses and they DIDN’T break, the relief and gratitude that washed over me was indescribable.

Such a GIFT I had been given, each time that my glasses did not break. — If you can’t really see, how do you go on to even the next MINUTE of your life? How do you even go about walking into a 7-11 to go to the bathroom without your glasses, much less go about finding a way to get them fixed or replaced with no money? Every time I bumped them or dropped them, I held my breath. And every time, they didn’t break.

And every time I was SO, VERY, VERY GRATEFUL 😀

I am currently grateful and blessed to have a temporary place to live.

And even now, when I drop my glasses, I hold my breath, but the terror is not there. And I am very grateful for that.

. . . This morning, in my temporary kitchen, I took off my glasses, washed my face and decide to wipe my lenses with the damp towel that I dried my face with, and the metal frame of my glasses gently snapped in my hands, and the lens fell out.

It was like an old friend ‘passing’ quietly in my arms. A friend who has had my back for years, without faltering or abandoning me. My glasses have been like a fellow soldier in my war against my own homelessness. Their good job is now done and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for their ‘service’.

I am so grateful that they stayed strong for me when I needed them most.
And the torch will be passed.

Angel Wisdom with Sharon Taphorn – Happy Day!

smiley-face1You have some wonderful ideas and it is time to put your thoughts into action and create what is in your heart. Expect a fantastic day and that is what will happen. This does not mean that you won’t see things you don’t want, or that some things won’t tug at your heart strings. It means that all things are truly perfect and as they should be. Let go of your concerns or your expectations on how things will occur and just expect them to get better from here.

Let this signify the end of a difficult time and perhaps revise some plans. Trust that there is more going on than you can see and trust that things are going to work out for the best, and for the good of ALL, and that includes you. Trust that you are being led to something better and let go of that which doesn’t serve you or your growth. Learn what you can from the experience and move on so that you can feel happy and have more happy, fun-filled days of joy and satisfaction.

Remember to look for the joy or the gift from each experience so that you can move forward. Complete the cycles at hand, because you are moving on to something more meaningful.

Affirmation: I am having a wonderful day filled with joy, peace and satisfaction. Life is a grand adventure!”

And so it is

Careful where you point that thing!

Dominion over all things doesn’t come with age, spirituality, or even gratitude. You were born with it, and you use it every moment, of every day, whenever you say, “I will . . I am . . I have . .”

And for that matter, whenever you say, “It’s hard . . I’m lost . . I don’t know.”

Life’s not about finding your power. It’s about learning how to use it.

. . . Careful where you point that thing!

Sharon Taphorn – Let It Go

There is no need to try to make something work that no longer does. See the GIFT from the experience and Let It Go. When you look deep within your heart, you know the truth and what it means to you, and then you know what to do . . Let It Go.

View it with love and compassion and prepare to move on to the new beginnings you desire. Complete the cycle so that you can move on unencumbered and create the new situations and relationships you desire.

Open yourself up to receive, as there is much that is new that is coming your way. View yourself and your life with compassion and keep doing your best. As you open yourself up to succeed, you will see that this is an abundant universe that has much to offer and enough for all.

Look within, clear what needs to be cleared, let it go and move on.  It is time and you are ready.

Affirmation: “I am letting go. I release any judgements, arguments, or past hurts that I have been carrying within me. I have compassion for everyone including myself. I forgive myself for what I think I have done or not done.”

And so it is.

Sharon Taphorn – Self Worth, Be Confident

It is time for your life to flow with prosperity, love, success, a positive self image and acceptance. It is time for you to believe in yourself and trust that you deserve more. Set clear boundaries for yourself and others and set healthy limits based on your insights and values. When you value yourself and your time you are more open to new ideas and attract abundance as well as the richness of life.

The angels wish to remind you to accept everyone exactly as they are right now, and this includes you. Accept yourself and others without judging, blaming, or the desire to change them. There might be things about yourself you would like to change and that is wonderful, however always remember that you are truly perfect just as you are right now. As you accept yourself, you will feel more peaceful, centered and confident and it will show in your auric field and others will feel it and hold you in that same light. Remind yourself often that you are likeable and loveable and deserve the best life has to offer, and you do. Stand tall and be confident.

Affirmation: “I deserve love, prosperity and success; I am worthy, confident and worthwhile; I accept myself and love myself unconditionally.”

And so it is.

My Gratitude and Affirmations Today

Today I am newly grateful for manifesting. I am grateful for the feeling and the fascination of imagining something I wish, that is unlikely to happen, and then see it happen before me.  It is a giddy and unexplainable feeling (maybe like trying to explain how it feels to be tickled).  Today’s manifestation has reminded me (thank you Universe) that I do not trust myself enough and I should, for I am part of God, and made from the Stars. I am Wonderful and Spectacular and Powerful — as is everyone 😀

I am grateful for yesterday being reminded of another “unlikely” that I have manifested. A situation that, were I to have told someone that this was my goal 18 months ago, anyone with any sense would have laughed, and yet it has been happening all along.  More needed than actually planned, but since it was needed, it was created, and I am Grateful.

I am Strong and Powerful and I will PREVAIL! — And prevail joyously 😀
Love and Blessings to all. — Kathleen

Gratitude for an online friend

The first year after my mom’s stroke was the darkest time for me. My homelessness was bad, but didn’t even “touch” the darkness of that first year. The depression was bad. It was BAD, bad. Many days I would wake up in the morning and as soon as I was conscious, I would be sobbing. That led me to a sort of “gauge” on how bad things were, based on whether I was crying BEFORE I was even out of bed. Back then it was often. It is not often now, but it happened two days ago.

After waking up, and sobbing before I was out of bed, (never a good sign) I got up and took the one kind of medication that I do have, and I made coffee. A couple hours later, I feel a lot better and it is not ONLY because of the medication. It is because I remembered some things, and I remembered them because of my friend Sabine.

I remembered that I am wonderful and brilliant.

I remembered that I am entitled to the same love that I feel for, and give to, others. I am deserving of the same encouragement and loving speech I give to my dogs. “It’s ok.” “You’re alright.” “GOOD GIRL!“ 😀

I remembered that I am my own best friend. And like any good friend, I am the one who will help me the most.

I remembered that stressing about it does NOT help. It actually causes resistance. Like trying to forcing a tight ring on a finger. Don’t FORCE it. Relax and “allow” it to happen as you wish.

I remembered that just because I want it, or even think I need it, doesn’t mean I am right. I need to allow The Universe to “do it’s thing”. What I need and want will be given to me freely and easily, but if I am fully determined that what I need is “over there”, I may miss the actual thing I need as it passes me by “over here”

I have received much kindness from so many, but today, I am reminded by, and grateful for Sabine. Thank you Sabine for your wisdom and gentle guidance, and your belief in me when I don’t believe in myself. You will truly never know what a positive impact you have had on my life.

All my Love and Blessings to you.

Kathleen
