I have a 'weekly challenge' for everyone! This is guaranteed to make you feel better about you, and therefore better about how everyone else feels about you! (Which is only ever a reflection of how you feel about yourself anyway, right?!) This is inspired by Denise Coates, author of Feel it Real. Great woman, fantastic book!

Pull out a notebook (or open a Word document!) and at the top of the page write 'What I love about me.' Every day for the next week, write as many things as you can that you love about yourself. Write AT LEAST five things a day. It might seem hard at first as many of us are not used to self-appreciation. But don't worry - the more wonderful things you find, the more wonderful things you'll find! LoA in action. After day one, you might find it helpful/inspiring to start by reading your list to-date.

Remember, the 'smallest' thing at all is worthy of writing down... For example, "I love the shape of my lips" or "I love that I bake fantastic chocolate chip cookies". You could even start with "I love that I am giving myself this gift of self-appreciation."

Have fun, and don't forget to post at the end of the week and say how it went!

'morning, mamas!

Catgirl! Where had you disappeared to? I missed ya!

As for those of us who have up until now struggled with jealousy, etc, I have found that affirmations really help, and gratitude journaling helps EVEN MORE! Joy trumps my feelings of being left out any day.

I'm so sleepy this morning! I got etsy on my brain last night and couldn't sleep for all the ideas that were knocking around in my mind! :

i'm trying to think of my intentions for the week, but all I can focus on is another sip of coffee. bbl!

HEY MAMAS!

Melanie -- what a great exercise!!! I did that once -- actually came up with about 20 things! -- and it does feel great. I'll do it again this week-- what a beautiful idea!!

Thanks Billie-Jo for telling me about your book and seeing energy! Very validating -- and I'm going to keep trying to see energy between my hands (mostly I'm just seeing double, so like 10 fingers. ). Thanks, Annikate and Apryl for your feedback, too!

I hope darwinphish makes it over to this new thread -- she's on fire with manifestation!!!

I think about some of the mamas we haven't seen recently -- anyone heard from Kundalini Mama???

Have a beautiful morning, everyone!

that's a great idea! and i just started doing something like this with my daughter during our bedtime routine. before we go to sleep, we talk about 3 things that made us happy that day. just two days ago, we started adding 3 things that we like about ourselves. and now we are adding people we want to send our love to. my daughter has really taken to this and she is the one who reminds me when i forget. it's a lovely way to fall asleep.

B, I just love that! Actually, I'm thinking of making a rosary bead type thing to incorporate a bedtime ritual similar to what you're doing with your Grandma's rosary. Hmmm... I think I'll use various gemstones to represent different things/people and then we can use those as 'counting beads' to go through our daily process. Oh man, this is going to be so much fun!! Thank you for the inspiration!

ETA: Does anyone remember daughters/family pride rings? (Maybe they still have these, not sure.) How cool to make family pride appreciation necklaces, with stones for each family member. What do I appreciate about Daddy, Mama, myself, my brother... This is what I'm going to do!

DD made her prayer beads at school with pipecleaners and beads. i saw they have them at the dollar store. so if your DD wants to make one, that's a nice and easy way for her to make one for herself. i've never been a really creative, crafty person before, but i am really appreciating it now. putting all your creation and creativity into something makes it even more special.

Hi girls!

I'm thrilled to begin another week.

Manifesting for this week:
-Fun
-Being in the moment
-Appreciate nature
-Celebrate every day
-Listening & following my intuition

I love the exercise, Koala. My favorite thread in single parenting was one where we all listed what made us fabulous. I got such an energy boost from reading it and writing my own post! I am excited to participate in your weekly challenge!!!

I love this idea! I think I could use some self love.

My intentions for the week:

1. I am focused and productive at work. Writing comes easily and naturally, my words flow.

2. My marriage is strong and healthy. I love and appreciate dh for all the he is and does. I am sexy and so is he!

3. I have fun everyday! Fun, fun and MORE fun!

4. There is beauty and abundance in my life. I am blessed to have so much!

Thanks, Pat

Well, this is a growing idea so I've not done anything with it yet! But my intention right now is to pick three beads for each family member and knot them together on silk cord. I will probably include additional sets of three beads for aspects of our community and/or extended family. Basically just beads for extra appreciation that we can use to focus on anything else around us as we're inclined. Then I'd like to start a daily ritual of working with the beads to appreciate how blessed we are. I'll let you know how it turns out! (This is all inspired by what Billie-Jo is already doing, which you can read about in her posts above.)

your wish is my command!

I can't remember who asked, but I did it - I got myself a business signature! It was a big leap somehow, paying for that, isn't that funny? See my avatar? It's my logo! My sister designed it for me.

I'm working on the bamboovillage.org site this morning, though I'm no web designer. It's very slow-going and doesn't look too great YET! Any suggestions would be SO warmly welcome. : I'm embarassed to even link to it, but if I don't the time will continue to pass without doing anything.

Time for breakfast!

I am tickled at your big manifestations!!! That's such a fantastic series of events!

KoalaMama
I love, love, love your opening post for this week!! It's lovely! I'll find time each day to think of wonderful things of myself...yes.

About the prayer beads
A few years ago I made a very small set of prayer beads that were intended to be universal in nature. It had about 5-7 beads, an angel bead, and a cross (of course, you could put something else other than the cross...like simply a bigger focal bead). I'll see if I can find the prayers and maybe post them here for anyone that's looking for a "starting point"?

My intentions this week:
To really accept that I can make a living giving readings. (there's too many thoughts behind this....)

To also trust that we can get a mortgage (or the actual money) for the house we're aiming for. And that the owners will accept it gracefully.
That we get the mortgage started this week....that it's positive and comes with positive results.

For Everyone:
Keep Shinin'!!!

shameless plug for my blog here, but this is what kind of got it started and i shared it on one of the old threads:

http://life-fantastic.blogspot.com/2...dma.html#links

then last week, my daughter came home from school with some little "prayer beads" she made at school. i was very touched by this. i'm meaning to make another blog post about it.

i just went back to find darwinphish's post about her non-profit, and WOW - I'm definitely taking notes! AMAZING work - and it just goes to show, even when we aren't feeling it, we can still manifest WONDERFUL, EXPANSIVE things.

thanks for sharing your story! can't wait to hear more. are you blogging about it?
