A Few Chuckles

Signs about town:

Signs In a clothing store: “Wonderful bargains for men with 16 and 17 necks.” Obviously alien roots.

In the window of an Oregon general store: “Why go elsewhere to be cheated, when you can come here?” Why indeed.

In a Pennsylvania cemetery: “Persons are prohibited from picking flowers from any but their own graves.” I don’t want to be a witness to that.

  • On a Tennessee highway: “Take notice: when this sign is under water, this road is impassable.” Blub blub
  • From the safety information card in America West Airline seat pocket: “If you are sitting in an exit row and can not read this card, please tell a crew member.” Yikes-let’s hope the crew checks this out thoroughly.
  • On a Maine shop: “Our motto is to give our customers the lowest possible prices and workmanship.” Bad capitalism.
  • On a delicatessen wall: “Our best is none too good.” I was so looking forward to a good meal.

Let’s Stay Focused

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. Helen Keller US blind & deaf educator (1880 – 1968)

Now we understand why our oils of Valor, Motivation, Live w/Passion, Magnify Your Purpose, Clarity are such great assistants in keeping us on track. Come on life. We are ready to deal with you.



AHHHH What a Week

Ever feel like you are being bombarded by the unseen? You are doing your best to get settled so sleep can start. You are breathing deeply, using your Stress Away oil, thinking love thoughts and your brain just won’t say goodnight. The solution? The oil of White Angelica. It protects from invaders and gives you peace of mind. Ahhh what a sleep.



Create Your Hearts Desire

Today I must use my Highest Potential oil so that my hearts desire is more than just staying in bed with a great book.  The truth is that the day we create reflects what is in our ‘spiritual-heart’.  I believe that it is important to be alive and conscious in our lives if we want to have a life with spirit here and a safe eternity when we return to our spirit selves.  Ahh Spiritual Beings having a Physical (cumbersome) experience.  That quote puts it all in perspective for me.

As Dr. L says, ‘Go do the right thing.’



Being Gracious

We were enjoying a relaxed swim in an outdoor mineral springs hot pool.  A young adult was smoking in the pool.  When asked to put out the cigarette they were puzzled why smoking was not allowed.

Common courtesies are learned.  The irony of this experience was that this lady was supervising some special needs young adults and reminding them constantly about ‘respecting others personal space’.

Graciousness thinks ‘they are doing the best they can and how can I by example teach them to be gracious.  Judgment just writes them off as ________ [you fill in the blank].

Letting Go

I don’t normally post on the weekend but there is something I want to share.  I am on a working vacation and my control issues are really screaming.

The scenario:

It is almost 500 miles of nothing from our starting point to our destination. I am traveling with an older person I love very much.  I also am legally responsible for this persons medical and legal affairs if anything happens and they are unable to make their own decisions.

About 200 miles into the trip this person informs me that they had a ‘medical spell’ the day before.  As they described this spell I was stunned.  Here I was traveling with a person who probably should have flown instead of riding for 9 hours where there are no facilities.

Result:

Absolute and total anger that I wasn’t given a choice to prepare for a possible emergency.  None of the legal paper work was with me that would ensure they would recieve the proper care.

They had much discomfort during the trip and after reaching our destination.  I kept my angry silence.

Solution:

I told my hostess that she would have to be the one to cherish this person as I believed I was totally betrayed.  I believe this action shows no trust in me, no confidence in me, and no respect for me.

Real Solution:

Let it go Adina.  This anger is not adding a thing to your life.  You can tell that they feel badly.  Just accept that less than the wisest choices are made when someone is going to do what it takes to get their way.  Adina remember that you have made choices that have not been from your highest power and others have forgiven you.  Just know that peace comes in the moment.  People will do what they want and you must work with what you are given.  Love is longsuffering, kind, doesn’t seek to be right, bears all things and endures.  Adina you are bearing an ugly spirit. Let It Go

The oils Inner Child, Surrender, Present Time, and Frankincense.

Inner Child to heal all the subconscious hurts, Surrender to embrace the love of God so that I am filled with that love and can give that love, Present Time to live in the moment, and Frankincense to remember the gifts of spirit that are ours to recieve and share with all we come in contact with.



Week 7 Days 43-49

Day 1  No sugar Liquid Meal [LM] I think I will have to be very specific about sugar intake.  I am comparing the grams of sugar to the calorie content.  It is amazing that the relationship is not what I thought.  Example

Product one: candy-170 cal 24 carbs 8g of sugar   Product 2: 7.5oz soda 90 cal 25 carbs 24g of sugar.

We have a late dinner tonight with a very special young man.  Yep you guessed it, my son.  Strong finish. One of the great htings about Mediterranean food is there is no need for desert!

Day 2  LM Very limited sugar.  It looks like I may have to go to 6 days sugar free with specific limit on when I do have sugar.  Very successful day. I am on the road tomorrow so what will be will be.

Day 3 LM  On the road did fine.  Sugar day.  Strong finish.

Day 4  Cleanse day.  This will complete all of the LMs for the week as I will have a LM for breakfast too. ?I did the cleanse from evening to evening. Not the recommended way. Sugar Free Strong finish.

Day 5 LM again. It is working so I will continue it. Sugar Free NOPE I am contemplating 5 days sugar free and 2 days of very limited.  I goofed and finished weak.  Lesson learned.  I will have to count this as a free day and move on.

Day 6 LM the liquid meals are easier and easier.  Sugar Free NOPE Now to get the sugar eliminated.  I am consuming less on the sugar days. I need to set a gram amount of sugar and be done with it.  My intent is set.  I am having lunch with a dear friend.  That will be fun.  Evening-a large vege salad.  Improv  workshop so I am always starved after.  I’ll just stay out of the kitchen. I did have sugar, stopped eating at 4 pm so used up many of the ’empty’ calories.  I did stay out of the kitchen.

Day 7 Show tonight plus a very active day.  No sugar thus far.  Should finish clean.  I will go out with the troupe for a salad after the show if they go.  Sugar Free



Friends

A friend is a gift you give yourself.  Anonymous

I am visiting a dear friend for a few days.  Our moms were friends and we are bestest friends.  Let your friend know you are glad they are there.

WOW What a Guy

What would you think of a man who left a waiter a several thousand dollar tip for a dinner he hosted at a very nice gourmet restaurant? If you have had the privilege of dealing with the very wealthy you will know that they are careful with their money just like the rest of us. This waiter is accustomed to sizable tips but this one flabbergasted him. How do I know? I know the waiter’s aunt very well.

This man is often maligned by the news media, ex and current presidents, Senator Reid, and other political folk. Why? Because they disagree with him.

I think we can all agree that regardless of his views and opinions he does know how to treat the ‘help’. Give me more of that abundance oil.



The Journey is the Destination

Many of us are having a life that we never planned on.  Some who have been consistent with being careful see a picture they don’t understand.  It isn’t fun and there are no easy answers.  I have been through 3 down economies-2 in southern CA (those didn’t affect the rest of the world as much) and now this one.

I know this part of the journey can become tortuous if I let yesterday/tomorrow eat up the moment I have right now.  Thank God for Improv.  Our show rocked.  We were smoking.

What is your outlet that keeps you balanced?

My oil?  Valor
