I'm so grateful we get to cook food for our friends! I love having an excuse to see them more often! I'm so grateful Kelly gave me a new nickname: TRIXIE. I officially request y'all call me that from now on.
I am so grateful we live in an incredible apartment complex! Our garbage disposal stopped working last night and the maintenance man came and fixed it this morning in TWO minutes, and also changed our air filter! I LOVE living here so much!
I'm so grateful for Jesus' birthday cake!
I am so grateful we have our own washing machine to do laundry with. I am so grateful I get to dye my hair today!! I am so grateful we get to go on a run outside today because it's so warm out!! I am so grateful we get to buy the new VEGAN QUESO at Wheatsville today and it's only 10 calories a serving! I'm so grateful my life is so easy and fun! I'm so grateful we have so much homemade food in our fridge. I'm so grateful for Birds barbershop! I'm so grateful I finally found a stylist I want to return to!! I'm so grateful I took a break from coffee yesterday. I'm so grateful I can recognize the direct correlation between my thoughts and my manifested reality. I'm so grateful we've been learning so much about space from that UNIVERSE show! It is SO GOOD.
I'm so grateful I have another post idea. I'm so grateful for kelly's simple explanations that help me so so much. I'm so grateful she can be like "not my contrast, not my problem" and objectively help me change my perspective to something more positive. I'm so grateful for pandora one and duke Ellington and bebop and dubstep. I'm so grateful I don't have to do pushups or crunches today! I'm so grateful for all the fun things I have to look forward to today!
I'm so grateful Kel and I use the bed as a couch to wind down at night. Playing Katamari, making lists, watching amazing information play in the background... Bliss!
I'm grateful we're allowing new places to meditate. We want to be able to meditate anywhere, and it's a great excuse to leave the apartment! We've been sitting in the same place for so long, it's time to get away from all the built up thoughts.
Today I intend to feel more gratitude. I intend to focus on positive aspects. I intend to direct my thoughts. I intend to feel relief. Relief feels like water washing away dirt. Relief feels like the ocean. Relief feels like a cool breeze on a hot day. Relief feels like a fixed garbage disposal!
Today I intend to feel love. Love feels like warmth. Love feels like cozy fires. Love feels like puppies and smiling in the car on a rainy day. Love feels like eternity. Love feels like balloons!
Wouldn't it be nice to see some beautiful balloons today? Wouldn't it be nice to have a super easy run? Wouldn't it be nice to mail Kel's family's gifts? Wouldn't it be nice to dye my hairzz? Wouldn't it be nice to do a perfect job? Wouldn't it be nice to write an article? Wouldn't it be nice to work on Michael's tattoo design?
Wouldn't it be nice to mail our thank you cards today? Wouldn't it be nice to meditate at the library? Wouldn't it be nice if it warmed up above 80? Wouldn't it be nice to always remember to think about what I want? Wouldn't it be nice if my predictions came true? (I predict we will have matter compilers that use black holes for the energy source!) Wouldn't it be nice if I felt super confident today? Wouldn't it be nice to have dinner at Wheatsville? Wouldn't it be nice to go play poker after our bonus round? Lol. Wouldn't it be nice to FOCUS? Wouldn't it be nice to feel really good today? Wouldn't it be nice to write about contrast? Wouldn't it be nice to learn a fractal program? Wouldn't it be nice to FINALLY OPEN that mashable package? Wouldn't it be nice to focus on what I want, all day?
I want things to keep going smoothly. I want solutions to come at the same time as problems. I want an evening thunderstorm. I want to wash my Vibrams. I want to change the sheets. I want to be inspired to write that post I've been turning around in my mind. I want to have fun with Kelly. I want our new towels to stop leaking fuzz. I want Pwny to sleep on my head. I want to feel so good that I want to read the Power Thought Cards. I want to watch Louise Hay films. I want to work on the podcast. I want to feel hyphy. I want to feel excited. I want to feel inspired. I want to feel vortexin. I want to feel love. I want attention. I want to give myself attention. I want to catch up again. I want to get better and better at catching up with Clair. I want the idea of Clair to be normal. I want to take Kerri to Wheatsville. I want to feel clarity. I want to talk to Pawel. I want to get all these non-creative items off my to do list. I want to feel good. I want to focus my attention. I want to direct my focus towards the things I want. I want a completely clean apartment. I want to devise an auto-backup system for our sites. I want to try my new blender. I want to run faster than I've ever run. I want to feel perfect in my skin. I want to feel pain-free. I want to revise my goals. I want to show my love. I want to show my appreciation. I want my friends to know I love them. I want my family to get it. I want validation from my higher self. I want to feel inspired. I want to feel inspired. I want the next logical step.
I love thinking about what I want. I love remembering to think about what I want. Today, I want to remember to think about what I want at any spare moment. Sitting at a stoplight? What do I want? Running? What do I want? Meditating? What do I want? Eating? What do I want?
I love how fascinating life is. I love how I didn't want to level up too fast and my wish was certainly granted. I love getting ideas for posts. I love chillin with Kelly in the bed. I love Hillcrest Oaks! I love living here! I love the people who work here! I love that I always get what I want if I focus on positive aspects. I love that the sun is out!!!!!! I love that we get to go for a run now! I love you, I hope you know that.
Message from Clair
I am always here and you can always talk to me. Whenever you don't feel quite right, just ask "Clair, what should I do?" We will likely respond with something like "focus on love" or "what do you want?" but we will always have the right answer for you. You can always communicate with your higher self. There is no special ritual you need, no magickal implement, no lucky sports jersey you need to wear. We are here to help you, so that you can find life more enjoyable. Life is meant to be fun, and we love helping you make it more fun.
