It's almost WARM out!!!!

Sarah and I went for a walk last night. A long, glorious, moon-lit, non-shivering, spring-smelling walk. We talked a LOT about life, and writing, and destiny, and instinct. It was so good. I feel much better about a lot of things, and I definitely have a renewed sense of direction.

I started re-listening to some of the Abraham-Hicks CDs I burned from my parents a while ago, and it's been kind of ridiculous. Everything I've been thinking about lately, ideas that have come to me, questions I've had... they are all confirmed or addressed in the past 48 hours of car-time-listening I've done. Amazing how I could listen to those CDs so many times, and only hear certain parts now.

Anyway, I feel much more empowered again. Not *completely* back to where I was, but getting there, and gaining momentum.

I want to make lists again. That's always a good thing. ;D

Anyway, just thought I'd share.

This weekend Jared and I are going to the Thousand Islands with Pete and Katie for a mini-retreat! I've been so looking forward to this, on multiple levels. First off, I've never been there, and that's always an adventure. Second, we're not obligated to do anything but have fun. I know Pete and Katie and I will use a lot of the time to work on creative projects, read, relax... it's perfect timing, really, because I just want to sit around and make lists and think about things, novels, directions, plans. Plus, I hear talk of drunken board games happening, and that's always fun...

And then last but not least, I had a dream I was riding a black alpaca through a city, and busking with my ukulele. That, also, I just thought I'd share. ;D

"You are the owner of all that you perceive. But you can't perceive apart from your vibration. Feel your way, little-by-little, into a greater sense of abundance by looking for the treasures that the Universe is offering you on a day-to-day basis."

I'm taking this from the book Ask and it is Given.

For 30 days, beginning on June 1st, I'm going to spend at least 10 minutes every morning writing lists of positive aspects about things in my life: my body, my relationships, my career. Whatever topic comes up that I'm not 100% satisfied with. Or, for that matter, things I am satisfied with. (Don't worry, I'll be doing this in a journal, not on here, lol.)

But the goal of this exercise is to increase appreciation in my life. So much of the time we are wrapped up in conflict and stress and worry, and we don't have to be. There is so much to be grateful for, and it is my belief that the more we express our appreciation, the more we will find to appreciate.

I invite everyone to join me in this exercise, and just see if you don't begin to feel a bit lighter, a bit happier, in all those areas of your life that you turn to with the intention of appreciating some part of it.

"The main event has never been the manifestation; the main event has always been the way you feel moment by moment, because that's what life is." -Abraham

Another affirmation that it is better for me to approach all things (even STRESS) with an attitude of playfulness.

Maybe I'll start a movement. ;)

"Most people have a hard time delegating, or even wanting to delegate, because you have been justifying your existence through your hard work, and you equate success with struggle; you equate results with struggle. And so, you sort of wear your struggle like a badge of honor. And all of that is opposite of allowing the Well-being. The only thing that ever matters in success or achievement is your achieving the things that you want to achieve. So if you are setting standards and you're feeling uncomfortable about the standards that you've set, tweak the standards back a little bit. Ratchet it back a notch. Give yourself a break. Give yourself the benefit of the doubt. Lighten up. Be easier. Go slower. Take it easy. Have more fun. Love yourself more. Laugh more. Appreciate more. All is well. You can't get it wrong. You never get it done." - Abraham

It is Law.

Awesome.

Also: I suck at life for not updating TPaL this week, and I apologize for that here and here. I've been going nuts trying to finish the synopsis for The Hierophant for the agent that requested it, even though I have a feeling he's not the "one." But still, in finishing it, I will have another step done in submitting to other agents, plus Llewellyn's YA fiction press, Flux, which is one of the few publishers out there of any worth that still takes unsolicited submissions.

I have to show old work today in my advanced editing class. Not thrilled about this. I would have shown my object animation, but I fear it is lost forever (I haven't had the heart to look on my parent's computer in case it really is gone) since the HD crash of '09. I have other things to show, but other people have better things- everyone else took intermediate video, and while I kind of did too, all I have to show for it is trapped on a computer in Oxfordshire, England. So, I think I will show "Strikes," the film I wrote/script-supervised/produced/co-edited for the 48 hour film festival. It won "audience choice"!

Oi. Okay. I feel down right anxious right now. Is it about showing my work? I don't know. I feel strange. Like I had too much coffee. But I haven't had any. Maybe I need some? Weird. Hyperactive? Me? How very, very unlikely.

Um... what else... oh yeah! I'm going to do a mid-grade cleanse next week, as it is the beginning of Fall and seasonal changes are always a good time to cleanse. Nothing too ascetic- fruits, veggies, brown rice, boiled eggs. Possibly yogurt. Lots of herbal tea. The hardest part? I'm also cleansing from technology. I won't be on the internet at all except to check my email 3 times a day and to post TPaL stuff. No Facebook. No Twitter. No LJ. Why? Because I spend too much freaking time on the internet. I've done this before in the past, and it's difficult, but I always get so much more work done.

I think that's all for today! :)
