Hey!

How are you?

My day started out as “one of those days”. I felt kinda overwhelmed at my “to do” list. The funny thing about my to-do list, is that it is not stuff I HAVE to do, it is merely things I CHOOSE to do. I just now read a quote on facebook that reads: “I find the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.” Thomas Jefferson

Ain’t that the truth! I agree. I guess that’s why I keep adding things I don’t have to do to my list, and I do keep getting “luckier”.

For example. Did Mike and I HAVE to make a video for the Osoyoos Celebrity Wine festival? NO- but we put it on our to-do list, and we got it done. Now we are top finalists for the competition. We got free tickets to the sold out event AND the owner of the winery we featured in the video has invited us out to their Vineyard for a tour and some wine.

(Here’s a still-shot from the video- I can’t show it until the weekend!)

So my point is- by doing things you don’t have to do- amazing things can happen! Like this blog too- I sure as heck don’t have to do it, it takes a lot of work, but I enjoy it and the reward is so worth it! I was going through a bunch of old posts today and I thought- wow- I did that. It’s like a public journal (except I don’t get toooooo personal, lol)

What can you do? What envelope can you push? What is something that you can do that will take a bit more effort, time and energy but will be rewarding once it’s done?


I found this picture of me today when I volunteered to read university texts books for the blind. Another thing I didn’t have to do, but it sure beat sitting at home watching reruns of Sex In The City, lol…

The key when you sign up to do more or put more on your plate is that… YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THROUGH. A lesson I learnt today. I felt overwhelmed with to much to do. So I took a deep breath and I thought…… OK…first things first… finish what you’ve started and then move on… SO I DID!!!!!

I half wrote a daily meditation over 1 year ago and I really wanted to finish it and get it up on the web. It has just been “one of those things” I’ve been meaning to finish and TODAY I FINISHED IT. WOOT WOOT.

I figured, before moving on to more half done projects I need to finish what I started… So here it is- My first ever written and recorded Start Your Day- Guided Meditation!

I put it to some pictures, but my goal is you never really see the pictures because you are listening, with your eyes closed to the meditation~

So…don’t watch this now, but come back to this page tomorrow morning and listen to it!!! Will you??? If you do… please let me know how it goes!

The reason I made this, is because my morning rituals have changed my life…for the better. It gets you in the right mind frame for the day.

IN the MORNING, before you start your day. CLOSE YOUR EYES AND LISTEN TO THIS!

I think the Canucks should do this!! Can someone send this video to Luongo?

I’ll be back tomorrow for some more blogging action, and if you do the meditation… let me know how it goes!

Lots of love, light, prosperity and energy!

Amanda
