Thank you for reposting! I missed last week!
The thing is, I know this, and yet I need to keep re-reading it. It is so easy for me to get caught up in getting ready for what is about to happen, or get stressed about everything that I need to do. The next 10 days or so are going to be about preparing for a huge change and I want to hold on to the fact that I can be happy NOW, while we get ready, while we declutter and make phone calls and tell people we will miss them etc, and get t he house ready to rent, and what ever else it is that I need to do. I still can choose to be happy TODAY. I can choose to be happy THIS MINUTE.I choose to live in the moment while I get ready for the things that are about to happen!

. Can you take some time to give yourself the "time" that you felt you were missing? To refill yourself. Because we can not serve others from an empty vessel.
One of my mantras when ds is moving s-l-o-w-l-y is 'there is plenty of time, there is plenty of time, there is plenty of time'. Time is just a construct. In fact we just "changed time" to prove it.
You can create "time" with your self-talk.
I really like this. (Of course, I like ALL your post!) I'm not sure how to apply these thoughts about time when I have a list of things that I need to do. This isn't about my kids for me, but about being patient with myself (if that makes sense).

WOW! I now from the other threads how HUGE all this is for you! Congrads!

I cannot believe how many of us are decluttering this week!
We should keep talking about how great it is to declutter so that we can keep each other's buzz going.
I want all the things that we are finished with out of our lives. I want to release it because I know that it will open up space in our lives for new things, and that it will give me more time. For me because everything we keep I have to unpack in a couple of weeks and then find a home for, but I think that clutter eats away at everyone's time by making it hard to find the things we want and making it hard to keep our homes clean. Clutter makes it hard to be patient with our kids.
|Linda, it sure must be fun to be you right now! Seriously, it just sounds so exciting, these amazing new opportunities and the chance to jump into a new place and new job for your DH and new avenues for you to explore!!! Wow! I'm all excited, and I'm not even the one doing it.
I am manifesting some amazing things in my life, some long term things. The most amazing thing I'm manifesting is the contentment with the long term part of that! Like, I know it's going to be just phenomenal, and it's okay for me that it's not going to be an instantaneous thing. The JOURNEY is phenomenal!!!! A-HA!!!! All is well, all is well, and all is well!! WOOT!!!
I started on this path the first of Dec, and my DH joined me around the end of Dec. The most amazing thing that I manifested at first was happiness, the simple ability to enjoy my life and let go of the past. I was clinically depressed when I started loa so curing myself without meds was huge.
Jan. and Feb. were months of growth in understanding, gratitude, and manifesting little things like cups of coffee and enjoying my life.
DH and I changed our eating habits and found ways we enjoyed exercising. And now so much is happening EACH DAY that it is amazing. We are living in the magic of life.
