I am so grateful for this gorgeous day! I'm so grateful we got two packages today! One had ALL THESE ASTROJAX! And the other was from our beautiful Jenny and was full of Snoopy things and stationery and love!! I am so grateful for the abundance in my life!
I am so grateful we get to play poker tonight with some new peeps! I'm so grateful for all my friends! I'm so grateful I still have almost 2 hours before we have to go so I can get some work done! I'm so grateful for the delicious spinach smoothie & triscuit breakfast I had! I'm so grateful I filled out a new top secret worksheet this morning before getting in the shower to help direct my thoughts, and it worked!
I'm so grateful I have a new visualization process for letting go of negative thoughts! I'm so grateful I have the perfect image in mind about it! I'm so grateful I have ideas flowing to me constantly! I'm so grateful for all the exciting projects I'm working on!
I'm so grateful for the Claude Vonstroke Pandora station! I'm so grateful we have the window open! I'm so grateful we got to go to the office and see Ms. Terry today! I'm so grateful we live in such an awesome apartment complex! I'm so grateful everyone is so friendly! I'm so grateful for our nighttime meditation which we have been listening to every single night before bed and it puts us to sleep instantly! I'm so grateful we walked to HEB last night and got all the ingredients we need for delicious raw meals!
I'm so grateful for my wonderful wife who makes my life so blissful. I'm so grateful Kel did the above worksheet last night! I'm so grateful we both care about directing our thoughts. I'm so grateful we are both designers. I'm so grateful for my design education! I love being formally educated! I'm so grateful I have two degrees! I'm so grateful I had the time and resources to obtain said degrees! I'm so grateful that getting my masters didn't force me into a job I didn't want, but instead gave me the impetus to do exactly what I want!
I'm so grateful I know that the universe takes care of me. I'm so grateful I know to expect abundance. I'm so grateful Kelly and I recorded an audio podcast yesterday (to post tonight?!) about letting go and it really helped me think about letting go in different ways. I basically said that I am really good at letting go creatively, and I always trust that inspiration will come if I let my desire go. So why can't I translate that to money and my physical body? I CAN! It was such a great conversation that really helped me realize that money is no different from creativity - if I want it, I have to LET IT GO! So I trust the universe to take care of me and I know it will! That gives me such a thrill! It feels like such a big risk to just let go of the oars in terms of money, but negative thoughts sure don't help! So I dove off the cliff! I'm building my wings on the way down! THANK YOU UNIVERSE!

Wouldn't it be nice to find another site to find creative commons licensed images that's as good as flickr? Wouldn't it be nice to find another free music site like Jamendo? Wouldn't it be nice if Chrome started working again? Wouldn't it be nice to work on Kerri's ebook? Wouldn't it be nice to have a standard ebook template? Wouldn't it be nice to release more and more worksheets? Wouldn't it be nice to make a fun workbook? Wouldn't it be nice to sell it on Etsy?

Advice from Clair
Letting go is much easier than it seems. There are many techniques you can use to let go of stale desires and negative thoughts, but the most important thing is to remember to trust the universe. That's all letting go really is - trust that the incredible force that created you is also incredible enough to sustain you if you let it.
The universe is like a parent and you are a toddler. The parent will always provide for the child, even though the child might make a mess. The universe will always take care of you, even if you resist with negative thoughts.
There is absolutely nothing you need to hold onto in your mind aside from feelings of joy, love and knowing. The less time you spend thinking negative thoughts, the more the universe can help you.
Why wouldn't the universe care for it's creation? You are perfect and beautiful, and YOU ARE THE UNIVERSE.
Telling my future
Today is SUMMER!!! Today is sunshine at night! Today is rollercoasters and sleepovers! Today is Ouija boards and rolls of stickers! Oh man I used to be so into collecting stickers, I think I might have to get back into it!!!!!!!
Interview with myself
How did your design education inform your life design endeavors?
When I learned that in graphic design, every decision is intentional, it became hard to not apply it to other areas of life. Why do anything without a reason?
However, being a designer doesn't mean that you can't make decisions you can't explain. Meaning, there is a place for intuitive decision making, as long as you're aware that's what you're doing. In life design, many decisions are directly inspired by source, and so I do a lot of post rationalization. Why did I choose to walk one direction instead of another? Because I was inspired to.
Design really isn't that different from art when you allow the possibility of inspired action.
- I'm letting go of all negative thoughts.
- I'm letting source do it.
- I'm having so much fun!
