The first day's task is to count your blessings. When you are saying that you are thankful something positive, you are putting that positive energy into the universe, into your world. We know that positive breeds positive and on the flip, negative breeds negative. So. why not. Let's do this. The book advises a simple script that follows as such. as you write your ten blessings. These are not written in any particular order and know that from day to day, these things could change. At least that is the way my own mind and life works.
I am truly blessed to have the job that I have , because it has shown me where I want to be in my teaching career, what skills I am naturally blessed with, and where know now that I do not want to be.
I am truly blessed to have my mom , because no matter what ideas I come up with, changes I make to my life, or new truths that I find, she always supports me even if she doesn't necessarily agree with me.
I am truly blessed to have the means to improve my health , because while I am not particularly healthy now, it could be much worse and I know what i need to do to fix it and have the means to do so.
I an so happy and grateful for my close friends, because without them I would only see our world through my own eyes. The friends I have are not afraid to tell me when I need to wake, reset myself, or look again at what is happening in my own life.
I an so happy and grateful for the knowledge I have through my pagan studies, because this knowledge has given me avenues to improve my life and know that I am working towards being the best me I can be.
I am truly grateful for Darren , because he sees things in me that I do not and always remembers to see myself in a more positive light. He is, after all, the reason I am now reading this book since he finished it.
I an so happpy and grateful for the opportunity to work through this exercise and this book, because I beleive that we never stop learning. If we do, life will soon end for us as we are meant to continually change and learn as we move through life's lessons.
With all my heart, thank you for my life , because the lessons I have learned are precious to me. They are all, hard and easy, happy and sad, what has made me the person i am today and most of the tiem I kinda like this person that I have become.
With all my heart, thank you for my children , because when I look at them I know that I did that well, despite the problems and struggles. They are amazing adults now raising their own amazing families.
With all my heart, thank you for spring , because without it the cold of winter would never end.
Me and a friend of mine have decided to read the book The Magic by Rhonda Byrne. My fiancee read it and it did wonders for his attitude and outlook on life so we decided, why not give it a try. Me being al witchy and stuff, and my friend looking for a new way to look at the world in order to make hers a better place for her to live in... What a great idea. If you're interested, you can follow us through the inspiration here.
In one one of my groups today, someone asked how witches would handle a situation, in a witchy way our in a mundane way. Someone else answered making a very good point. If someone is truly a witch, is there really a mundane way? We handle things the best we know how and this is never mundane.
What does it mean to truly live the witchy life? To me it means waking up every day and trying to see the sunshine. Going in to work every day with a smile on and a positive attitude. Looking at the silver lining with everything some might say. Does that mean everything always comes up roses? No, of course it doesn't. But I know and it has been proven time and time again that we can manipulate how our lives move forward just by having a bright outlook and positive attitude about life in general.
Yes, there are definitely more "witchy" aspects to my life then a bright attitude and positive outlook. But that is definitely a place to start.
