Monday Raves: What’s Going Right in Your LIfe? April 15, 2013

happy couple

Happy Monday!  What’s going right in life today? It’s tax day is here in the US.  I hope it is a joyful day for all of you or at least, mostly painless. This year I was a little later than usual getting our taxes together and we owed money, but I’m thankful that we have the funds to pay it and that we’ve been successful enough to owe money. If your tax bill has got you down, here’s a hindu money mantra, that some people have said has brought them magical results. It is supposed to be chanted 108 times.

I find the most magical thing for me is to relax about money and know that everything always works out.  I’ve had times when I didn’t have the money to pay my tax bill and I made payments.  Really it’s no big deal, unless we make it one. We get to choose our reality.  I know a big bill is just smoke and I am going to continue to be prosperous, so I focus on the driftwood:  I’m able to pay it, I’ve learned techniques from our accountant and have a plan not to owe next year, I’m getting arefund from my state taxes.  Before I go to far off on a tangent, here’s my rave list for the week:

1. I love that I can pay my taxes and that I enjoy many services provided by our government.  I love that we have nice roads to travel on, trash service,  and wonderful schools for my children to attend.

2. I love that our city provides excellent trash service and free recycling.  I love that sorting my trash has become a habit and I feel good that we are doing little things every day to support our planet.

3. I love that our heating and cooling business is booming and we looking forward to hiring new employees and I’m excited to find the perfect people to meet our customer’s needs.

4.I love that we have so much wonderful food available to us.  I rave about this a lot.  I love going to the grocery store and seeing all the delicious options and especially all the fresh, organic foods.  It always makes me feel rich to leave the grocery store with a full cart.

5. I had so much fun this past week on Skype with Kim Falconer for the Good Vibe Astrology class planning out my project.

6. I had the best conversation with Jeannette Maw that lead me to inspiration for a new project and I’m having a blast working on it.

7. I laughed out loud when I read Jeannette’s post about taxes in the vorteand then I went to  Oh my word, you can buy the funnest things for five dollars there.  Seriously, check it out, if only for a laugh. You can hire someone to sing Happy Birthday to you in Welsh wearing a thong. I’m not kidding.

8. I’m learning so many new things right now and that get’s me excited about life.

9. I put out the patio furniture and the pool chairs this weekend.  I loved soaking up the vitamin D and getting ready for pool season.  I love to swim and be outdoors.

10.  Craig Kimbourgh will be here on Wednesday, sharing about mediation.  I love his Meditative Zone and I’m excited to have connected with him.

I’d love to hear what you are raving about or any good news you have. To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of April. I’ll put everyone’s name in and choose a winner to be announced here around May 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner.

Love and Alchemy,

    I love your raves Michelle, fantastic! I’m excited for you!
    I love that I’m getting an amazing camera! I have big plans for it!
    I love that I manifested it just an hour after thinking that I’d love to have a better one. I had no idea I’d get it.
    I love how quickly I manifested oranges and lemons at my doorstep after just thinking I needed to call this guy for some more.
    I love the delicious meal I had yesterday with friends, laughing and having a good time.
    I love that my husband has given up caffeine and now feels better and is doing things with me that I’d wanted him to do for a long long time!
    I loved walking to the farmers’ market with my hubby on Saturday morning and enjoying the morning together. That hasn’t happened in years. I intended that to happen and amazingly he offered to go with me, that’s like a miracle!
    I love how I’m coming more and more into my power!
    I love that I was able to assist my sister with her work situation. As a result of our 10 minute session, she completely shifted and has a whole new reality at work!
    I love how someone I know, saw me in town and didn’t recognize me and thought, “hey, who’s that hot chick?” I’m in my mid forties and that felt great!
    Love and Grace, Nina

    I love that you’re giving away an angel card reading this month! How cool, Michelle! And seriously – happy birthday in Welsh in a thong? That’s entertaining to even think about! ha

    I love that my ex took the day off and is running errands for me today. (Including mailing my check to the IRS today.)

    I love that we woke up to snow on the ground this morning.

    I love that tomorrow I get to play with a new course and new people.

    I love that my dog is snoring under the desk right now. (He’s the best dog ever!)

    I love that my blog has a guest post from Michelle on it today! WOOT!! 🙂

  • Ashley says:

    I have a set of angel cards and pick one a day but I have never had a reading – so, so fun and generous of you.

    Monday is the very best day of the week. It is a wonderful day for fresh starts.

    I just found your blog tonight, through Jeannette’s blog post and have signed up to receive your emails when you post. I look forward to poking around and getting caught up on your articles.

    Have a great night! And thank you!

    • Michelle Dobbins says:

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I love Angels cards. I have four decks and I’ve been doing readings for friends for years, so I decided it would be fun to pick someone from my blog every month to give a reading to. It’s been a lot of fun for me and hopefully for the winners. Hope you have an awesome week! 🙂

    • Michelle Dobbins says:

      Noelle, I love all the “easy” you have going on in your life. Thanks so much for sharing your list of what’s going right. It lit me up to start my day out reading it. Wishing you continued reasons to rave. 🙂

  • Swati says:

    Great Post. I’m afraid my list isn’t as long but I can say that
    1) I love that I’ve excercised regularly for past one month
    2) I love that I’m soon going to be on a new professional adventure
    3) I love that I don’t live in the US and thus don’t have to fear the Tax day 😛

    • Michelle Dobbins says:

      Swati, Thanks for sharing your list. Exercising regularly is nothing to sneeze at and new professional adventures sounds dreamy! I find that once I start making my rave lists, I keep having more and more to add to them. I’m hoping you will, too! 🙂
