What I want to feel today
- Creative inspiration!!
Today I intend to choose to feel good, no matter what. Today I intend to remember what I know. I created all of this. I asked for all of this. I LOVE all of this. I am making this up as I go along. I am a leader. I am the leader. I have always been, and always will be. I am the leader of my life, and everything in it. Isn't that just incredible??
I love writing this post so so so much! I love that I have been so busy the past couple weeks with visitors that I didn't make time to post every day, and now I see more than EVER how important this exercise is! I love crying! I love thinking about crying! I love contemplating new ideas! I love creating new ideas! I love focusing! I love not drinking! I love knowing that I have all the tools I need to be blissfully, ecstatically happy right NOW, right HERE. I love that life is fun! I love that I can choose to feel good! I love that I can choose to feel love! I love that I can choose to feel abundance!
I love that I am a powerful creator, and that I live in REAL TIME ALMOST ALL THE TIME. I love that I am a magician and that I can manifest anything I want! I love that the time in between thinking about what I want and getting it is getting SHORTER AND SHORTER!

Things I appreciate about myself
When I think about myself with love, this is what I see: I am a beautiful, joyful soul who loves taking risks. I have a great big smile that invites anyone in to bask in the glory of life. I've traveled to the edges of reality (and the universe) and I've witnessed my thoughts creating what happens next. I have shattered paradigms that have trapped me for years, and all because I chose to. I have been so very very low that I can now reach unfathomable highs. I am familiar with the feeling of ecstasy and now how to reproduce it.
I am in love with myself and my physical body. My body is so strong and every single day I learn how to perceive myself in better light. I constantly impress myself with the physical feats I am able to accomplish. My childhood dreams of being a gymnast and performer come closer to being realized every single day as I take up flow arts and push my strength and agility to the limit.
I create myself with each new thought and my thoughts of myself are kind, gentle, and appreciative. I am able to look at all of creation with a maternal love and smile, knowing that I made everything I see and I get to play with it all right now.
I have decided to embrace life and enjoy each moment, and it gets easier to do so every single day. I am so driven to create new ideas and these new ideas create new realities for me to explore.
I have seen beyond the barriers of socialized life and while I love the comfort and conveniences of society, I am able to go off on my own to invent entirely new ways to experience the world. I am a brilliant genius creator, and the part I love so so much is that I can now see that EVERYONE is a brilliant genius creator.
I am different, unique, and constantly creating. I have childlike enthusiasm and can convince anyone to play with me. I absolutely adore my life and all that I get to experience every day and I am so excited that I get to KEEP CREATING! I am so grateful that I am so young and still have forever to explore forever.
I am so grateful for the infinity I have seen and the reflection of it in my eyes. I am so grateful I can see the secrets of the universe in my life. I am so grateful to feel ready for the next step, and to be consciously choosing it. I am ready to fully embrace my power, and it isn't scary or intimidating. It only feels like love, and I know my heart is big enough to hold all the love in the world.
Last night I looked at my dad who was cutting a turkey for thanksgiving dinner (thanksgiving that Michael is home!). I realized that all he wanted in the world was to create a delicious meal for everyone to enjoy, and that any crabbiness or frustration he ever has is only because he is so full of love that he wants everyone to feel it. Sometimes that love has trouble finding a way out. It just made me feel so relieved, yet WISE to be able to see through negative thoughts and emotions to the pure love creating my father. It made me so happy to see through the illusion. It made me so happy to witness such love. It made me so happy to be surrounded by people I love. It made me so happy to be able to appreciate. I thought "aw, he just wants everyone to enjoy dinner! He just loves us so much!" And with that thought I was more connected to him than I had ever been in my life. Thank you dad for this beautiful life and your beautiful love!!

Today I focus and get more of it. Today I am clever, creative and ecstatic. Today I am only love. Today I feel such love for myself that I grow more beautiful before my eyes.

What does your about page say today?
I am a philosopher and life designer. I think about the true nature of reality and then that's how it is. I teach other people how to think about life using the Internet. I remind people what they already know.
My message is simple: collect the best parts of your life and put them online. Your focus produces more to love while inspiring other people to look for love in their own lives.
Interview with myself
Where do you see yourself in one week - April 1?
I am in the mainstream media. I have upgraded my website hosting easily and painlessly. My to do list is empty. I have further perfected the way I speak about my work. I tell Oprah what's up. The forum is exploding with new members. I am excited, ecstatic, and focused like never before.
I am watching love ripple through my universe like a cosmic rainbow of particles of flowing connection, I've seen it before and I am seeing it again with my physical eyes! I am fearless, and so madly in love with life.
Also, Kelly and I have taken some super hot photos and they are all viral on Tumblr ;D

- If you struggle at times with positivity, check out Alli's post Confessions of a Negative Nancy. No matter where you are in your ability to direct your thoughts towards the positive, all that matters is that you are aware of your thoughts. The struggle you feel at the beginning of trying to direct your thoughts only makes getting better that much more delicious. Just know you can get better! It will happen for you, I promise!! Just don't stress about it, it's all coming!
