Monday Raves: What’s Going Right in Your LIfe? September 9, 2013

Happy Woman on Laptop

Happy Monday!  Hope there is much going right for you in your life. For me, last week was a week of ups and downs.  There were lots of sweet moments and some pull-your-hair out moments, but that makes the sweet ones all that much more sweet. At a moment, when I was feeling a little overwhelmed, my husband came to me with the video and it was such a great reminder of how small my problems are and all I need to do is shift to solutions thinking.

Here’s my rave list for the week:

1. I love that I have so many supportive people in my life and that I have the knowledge to know how to shift my thinking when it gets going in the wrong direction.

2. I love that my children are learning so much homeschooling and we can tweak the things that aren’t working.

3. I love that we were able to finish our lessons early on Friday and have some fun. We went geocaching with neighbor children, who also home school, had lunch with daddy and ice cream at our favorite place!  It was a wonderful day.

4. I love geocaching. I love that someone followed their passion and created an activity that blesses so many people and takes them to beautiful places that they wouldn’t ordinarily see.

5.I love that we found a geocache in a lovely garden with a fountain and a labyrinth only 2 miles from my house that I didn’t know existed. It was such a peaceful spot, I want to sneak back without the children.

6. I love the House Fairy and how she gets my kids excited to clean their rooms.  I love the Flylady and how she helps me create routines to keep my house in order.

7. I love how I create a list of items I need done to my blog and my Facebook page and Susan Marshall magically makes them happen. She is fabulous and I think she has an opening in October if anyone is looking for a virtual assistant.

8.I love that I’m still getting up early most days and making step by step writing progress.

9. I love that my Spanish is growing by leaps and bounds.  A little bit of Duolingo (and it’s free!) every day plus practicing with native speakers is really working.

10. I love that the holiday season is coming up. I’m already getting excited for all the fun fall and winter activities.

What’s going right for you? I’d love to hear your raves and comments.To prove it, I’m giving away a Facebook “manifesting plan” to one of my commenters during the month of September. I’ll put everyone’s name in and choose a winner to be announced here around Oct. 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 message me on my Facebook page. Once you tell me what you want to create, I’ll create a personal manifesting plan for you and we’ll make sure it feels good to you.

I’d, also, like to invite any bloggers or readers, who’d like to take over the Monday Raves for a week and share their list on the blog to give me an e-mail or a Facebook message and let me know.  I’d love to be able to let you have the opportunity to share your good news.

    I love that I found a new app through a Psychology Today article called Lift where I can develop healthy habits in a supportive community! I love that I’m practicing the habits! I love that my journaling workshop started again and my bartering arrangement for private coaching with the mentor is going fabulously! And I love that you call your reply section “Magical Words!”

    • Laura, sounds like you have some awesome things to rave about. I like the concept of Lift. I signed up before and didn’t follow through. I think I’ll go back to it. Glad you mentoring and bartering is going well. Thanks for sharing your Magical Words!

    This showed up in my inbox with perfect timing. I had being thinking that I should get back on the FlyLady mailing list and your post reminded me to go ahead and do it. I’m also loving the Duolingo site. It’s fun going through the lessons. Although I forgot more of my high school French than I thought! Thanks for the suggestion. 🙂

    • Laura, You’re welcome! It seems were on the same mindset this week. I’ve used Flylady before to get my house in order and just recently started back and I’m loving quick, easy, free language practice with Duolingo.

  • […] As you can imagine, keeping up the positive, happy vibes at present it a little challenging, which is why I am so grateful to Michelle over at Daily Alchemy for her post today – Monday Raves – What’s going right in your life? […]
