Good evening! I am having the best day of my life! So I had to come here to tell you all about it of course. I am so grateful that we just made the BEST tomato soup I have ever consumed! I am so grateful that Kelly and I are staying up late to work. We have so many fun projects going! I'm so grateful I get to wrap up Lesson 7 tonight! I'm so grateful that we biked to Whole Foods to get much needed bulk groceries. And I am so grateful that my BIKE GOT STOLEN at Whole Foods, because it forced us to walk home and have an incredible conversation about emotions. It was so blissful! When I first noticed my bike was gone, I was like "ummmmm what the fuck" but then I didn't get upset. I thought "I don't want to feel upset about this, so what should I feel? What is the 'bounce' here? What is the feeling I want to feel? What are the positive aspects of this situation?"
So I didn't freak out or cry or get upset. I just immediately started thinking about what I want instead. Looking for positive aspects, I thought "well, we get to walk home on this beautiful night. We get to play the coin manifestation game. I'm sure I'll get a new bike that's way better." Then we started walking, and found my sawed through bike lock. Now at least I didn't have to blame one of us for improperly locking up the bikes. As we walked home, we started talking about what we were grateful for. That helped me feel a lot better. (Oh also, at one point I was like "wouldn't it be nice if that criminal got hit by a car on my bike?" which is a nasty thing to think, yes, but I don't want you to assume I felt no anger at all.)
Anyway, we talked about feelings we want to feel. We want to feel relief, so we talked about times we've felt relief before. Like when I got a call from planned parenthood saying everything was a-ok. Or when I finished writing my thesis. Or when I found Linty in the suitcase after we moved and I couldn't find her anywhere. Basically, I am so grateful that we turned an annoying situation into something totally positive. By the time we got home, I was feeling euphoric! Who cares about that bike, it's just stuff, and I can always manifest more stuff. Everything happens for a reason - maybe we didn't bike home for a damn good reason.
SO I am very grateful that whenever I am faced with a difficult situation, I now have more practice in reacting. When I see something negative in my experience, I can choose to feel EXCITED for the solution that's coming. I can choose to feel happy that I got to feel a negative feeling, because now it's easy to choose to feel the opposite. And then whatever negative thing happened, I can just let it go. I don't care about that bike now. I can walk. I don't need a bike to feel good. I'll still have great experiences everywhere I go. It's just like you have to put down some janky weapon in a video game if you ever want to be able to pick up a better one.
Tonight, I intend to get inspired work done. Tonight, I intend to continue focusing. Tonight, I intend to love myself unconditionally. Tonight, I intend to stay in the vortex! Tonight, I intend to relax and go with the flow. Tonight, I intend to congratulate myself on my positive attitude. Tonight, I intend congratulate myself on being such a good cook! Tonight, I intend to visualize my desires. Tonight, I intend to go to sleep in the vortex, excited for tomorrow. I intend to have the best night of my life!
Wouldn't it be nice if a new, better bike showed up at my door? Wouldn't it be nice to record the audio section of Lesson 7 with Kelly tonight? Wouldn't it be nice to publish the lesson tonight? Wouldn't it be nice to scan an entire sketchbook tonight? Wouldn't it be nice to edit and publish TPP#311? Wouldn't it be nice to get Adsense hooked up on my site tonight? Wouldn't it be nice if Adsense worked in Chrome? Wouldn't it be nice to pwn our 10 mile run tomorrow? Wouldn't it be nice to have a delicious 4am salad? Wouldn't it be nice to fall asleep in Kelly's arms? Wouldn't it be nice if Pwny slept on my head? Wouldn't it be nice if the Bluehost referrals kept pouring in? Wouldn't it be nice to help someone set up a website? Wouldn't it be nice to keep finding more and more lifestreamers? Wouldn't it be nice to have a lot of fun recording Lesson 7? Wouldn't it be nice to always have a good attitude? Wouldn't it be nice to remember my dreams again tonight? Wouldn't it be nice to have lucid dreams? Wouldn't it be nice to feel relief? Wouldn't it be nice to always focus on what I want? Wouldn't it be nice to have the best night of my life?
I love having a positive reaction to negative circumstances. I love my girlfriend. I love cooking, so much! I love that I don't need recipes all the time anymore. I love the way we eat. I love that I am falling more in love with my physical body every single day. I love that I am so devoted to working tonight. I love that my job is SO FUN. I love this site. I love writing blog posts. I love how fulfilling it is to focus my energy on positive thoughts. I love how directing my thoughts is getting super easy. I love that I don't have to argue with people who don't get it. I love that people don't get it because they're not in the vortex. I love that Abraham-Hicks really is leading edge thought. I love that I GET IT. I love that out of all the religions and philosophies I've studied, Abraham-Hicks makes the most sense. I love that my life makes sense. I love that I don't have to be an atheist. I love that I don't have to live in confusion. I love that I create my reality. I love that I don't have to feel sadness. I love that I can choose to feel good about everything. I love that I DO choose to feel good. I love living! I love feeling excited! I love feeling relief! I love feeling love! I love feeling euphoric! I love that writing this makes me physically smile! I love smiling! I love this day so so much.
And I have a few scrumptious treats even!
