Day 13 of My Positive Affirmations


I am still trying to change my sleep schedule. I am trying to wake up just before daylight. I am also trying to change my son’s sleep schedule. He wishes to stay awake 24/7 to play video games. He just went to sleep this morning. I had to yell at him when I got up. I am going to shake off those bad vibes and just concentrate on positive things to say when he wakes up. He is positively not allowed online after 9PM on school nights.

Today’s daily affirmations, one a quote from my inbox and one from Twitter:

I possess an endless supply of creativity, energy and tolerance for any project that I assume.

“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”
― Yehuda Berg

Word. May the force be with you. I am going to be humbly silent for the rest of the morning.


12th Day of Positive Affirmations


I still love elephants, I hope they boost my Ebay sales.

I got this simple affirmation from Twitter:

“I’m hoping for something that I’ll get, waiting for something that will come to me, and dreaming of something that will happen”

Yes, I am waiting….and thank you Universe for the bright sunny days and unseasonably warm temps. I plan on listing and cleaning this weekend, but the sun always gives me a boost. I still need to do a few chores outside too.

I never get enough chores done, but I keep plugging along. Not having any appointments will help me get more done this weekend.

Surprise, I Have a Grandson!


They were told from two sonograms it was going to be a girl. The shower was girl themed. My son started filling out the baby book with the girl name they had picked out. When my son called he told me I had a grandson, I thought he was joking. I was laughing, but I am just happy he is healthy and mom is doing ok too.

I went to see him yesterday, because my son has appointments today and tomorrow. It is a two hour drive one way. I am a very tired grandma. I had fatigue bad today, but I pushed through. I had to walk up stairs at my son’s appointment because the elevator was broken. I managed to flip my mattress over, put medicine in my dogs ears, and list a few things on Ebay. It took all my strength. I have to do more listing tomorrow, I need a lot more sales. I have to figure out health insurance disasters too. I am glad I had milk for my son to eat cereal for dinner. I will probably not cook tomorrow either.

So days 9 and 10 of my daily positive affirmations are over.  I am positively wiped out…lol. Day 9 affirmation, “I love being grandma”. Day 10 affirmation, “Just do it”.

I will try to start up the daily affirmations tomorrow morning.


Eighth Day of Positive Affirmations


Do you ever wonder if your legacy will live on? Do you just wonder how many generations beyond your own will know about you and read what you have wrote?

This pic is of a vintage book I have for sale. Others I have sold have inscriptions too. It is not the same as me telling their story, but I like to think I made them last a little bit longer.

Today, I slept in very late after waking up early to let the dog out. I hope I am finally catching up from the weekend. My brain and body are still sore and lagging. I plan on keep pushing through all of this, because I have to.

Today’s affirmation: “So Many People are Expecting a Miracle Instead of Being a Miracle.” ~Wayne Dyer  Be a miracle today, be the best miracle you can be. Keep breathing deeper.

7th Day of Positive Affirmations

Today is from my soul brother, The Ramblings of Bry on facebook and also YouTube:

You are not here just to fill space, or to be a background character in someone else’s movie.
Consider this; Nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you.
We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.
Nothing would be the same if you did not exist. The space and time you share with people may mean nothing at the time, but it will.
The energy you share, the love you spread, the time you give speaks volumes about you as a person. Each of these things are changing those around you, therefore also yourself, no matter how subtle.
Stand in the puddle of your own truth and follow your bliss, those that want to will catch on, new connections will be made especially by the open minded and free thinkers of the world.
What we put out there, we eventually get back. Create your own life in order to really love living your life, or you will fall by the wayside.
One world, one love. Lets fill these dark times with peace and love, and push these thoughts out into the cosmos. Peace starts with you, and every single one of us can start today, now, right now.
Some of us are just existing and not living. Wouldn’t you rather set the world on fire and do something that challenged you, caused you to get up out of bed each morning actually looking forward to the day ahead, do something about that dream you’ve always had, start that business you’ve been talking about for years, or write that book?
We’ve all got something we’d love to do.
It would be fantastic to say to your grandchildren, I gave it my best shot, instead of saying ‘I sat in and watched TV a lot and didn’t really do much with my life’.
It’s easy to get caught in the trap of doing nothing, which actually drains your energy more than doing something; anything.
A new day, a new you. Nothing would be the same if you did not exist, lets exist in a beautiful and glorious way.
Open your mind and open your heart, let the new you escape.
This is your time.
Be well -x-12188224_1657996381104923_5093600853879239315_o

This is one of his painting too, he sells them on Ebay.UK as ishi-art

So todays affirmation, “you are not here just to fill up space”, “you exist for a reason”

5th Day of Positive Affirmations


Today I will ask the Universe for what I want, and expect to receive it. It might seem futile, but if you don’t ask the answer is always no.

I am deserving of good things to happen to me, I welcome all good things I have and will continue to have in the future. I have my health. I am not at my 100% best, but I am not dead or lying suffering in pain. I consider myself lucky to have my three strokes in the past. They are my constant reminder to take care of myself. I am trying to think more positively, and stay clear of negative people if possible. My former self was too negative, it did not serve me well.

I went out to see a band last night, after going to the auction. They were very LOUD, my ears are still ringing. I had a few laughs both at the auction and at the bar. I am going out again tonight. I am hoping the music tonight is more danceable and just a tad quieter.

I bought a 4 drawer nightstand at the auction last night for $2. This is another project that hopefully spurs me to do the other millions of unfinished projects. I also bought a solid oak chair. I plan on getting rid of my sofa and turning my living room into a dining/game room. I have been planning this since summer. After living in this small house, I have come to the conclusion I don’t want a tiny house. I need space for pets, projects, and peace.

Positive Daily Affirmation Day


This was from 3 years ago. I have not put my small fake tree up, not sure if I will.

Todays positive affirmation is again from twitter. It is so important to keep positive. It is so hard when you turn on the TV. I am going to keep mine off for awhile.

“I will remain confident and unaffected by negative attitudes around me.”

If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all….that is a statement that sounds negative….lol. Put on your teflon suit and go out in the world confident. Believe in yourself, not everyone has to agree or be the same. Let no one steal your thunder. Breath deeper if you need more strength.

Day 3 More Positive Affirmations


Downtown Syracuse 2015……This photo was taken by Jody Grenier

Todays affirmation from twitter…….”I am strong and life will never get me down, because the harder I fall, the higher I bounce.”

Remember to breath in to expand your lungs and mind. Take time out to walk, exercise, reflect and be grateful you are still here.

I am not a very talkative person, it has been ingrained into me to fear conversation. (that is my guess anyway) Instead of knocking on everyone in my neighborhoods door to ask for donations for animal shelters I put out a request via a site called “Nextdoor”, I got one response so far. This makes me happy, baby steps, baby steps but going forward.

Positive Affirmations Day 2


She loves cameras….lol, she moves too fast.

Today I am enjoying my sore muscles. They are letting me know I did something to get stronger. I have to keep reminding myself to breath deeper, expand my lungs.Breath in the good, breath out the bad (negative thoughts). I did something different last night, I joined in on a live chat. Blab is still in beta mode, but I have been on it twice now. I did not put myself on screen just interactive bystander. I am also playing online poker again. I don’t use real money. It may seem like unproductive time except I also talk to some of my poker buddies and gain new buddies. I also have my second granddaughter on my mind. She is due tomorrow! Tomorrow is only a day away! Whenever she is born, I hope it is safe and easy for mom and her.

The simplest affirmations are some of my favorite. Like from the book and movie, The Help by Kathryn Stockett. “You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”  -Aibileen Clark

You is kind….always be kind…..You is smart….smart enough to read my blog…lol….you is important…we are all mere specks of the same matter as the rest of the universe, but we are needed to make the universe complete.

Giving Tuesday


“You may have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There’s another day you might want to know about: Giving Tuesday. The idea is pretty straightforward. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, shoppers take a break from their gift-buying and donate what they can to charity.”

― Bill Gates

This is the first day of December, and I am going to TRY to do daily positive affirmations. Positive affirmations help us reach our full potential.

I copied a few things today from twitter, facebook, and other places on the internet. Take a deep breath, let the oxygen get your body in gear and your mind to make full use of all  those unused cells. Then say your affirmations and believe they will come true.

December 1st: “My life is full of wealth and blessings. I’m grateful for all that I am and all that I have. I am kind, capable, full of love, and willing to share.”

I had to get up at the crack of daylight today. It is grey and raining. I am going back to bed, to wake up refreshed. Later today, I will take my son to his group meeting while I work out at planet fitness. I only have two more days to get through until payday. I am blessed.
