Life is so good!
I’ve had a perma grin since getting these gnarly braces on. I can’t wait to have a good smile
The purpose of me writing today is to create a desire list. I saw this idea on facebook from a post from Gabby Bernstein, author of The Universe Has Your Back, one of my favorite books. I figure a desire list fits in nicely with some other things I wanted to do this weekend.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and talking.. I took off Thursday to see the alternative doctor & then got my braces on Thursday night. I was so excited to go to work on Friday, show my braces and tell all my friends about my doctor visit. Many of these work friends have known me for several years and have seen me through good times and bad, health wise. They’ve seen me in my most debilitating state. I’m pretty sure my work peeps have never seen me as animated as I was yesterday. They are intrigued! All I can say is that if Dr. Tent fixes me, he is going to have A LOT of new clients!
If? No. There are no ifs. When I was 18 an old veterinarian that I worked for gave me a copy of a book he wrote called, The Power of Positivity. It took me over 20 years, but I ended up reading it after I turned 40. Positivity is powerful and I was meant to get that book. Just like I was meant to see the old rheumatologist who told me I have a Parvo virus. I thought he was a real quack but it gives me even more motivation now to get these viruses out of my system. I also believe that I was meant to encounter that older gentleman at the Refuge Recovery meeting who told me he meditates his pain away. I’m a firm believer that we encounter certain people totally on purpose.
I HAVE to think positive and not even entertain the idea that this will not work. I am 100% submerged in it and compliant. This weekend I’m printing mantras and positive messages about my health and recovery and hanging them up around the house. I’ve started meditating with a mantra to rid this body of the infection and viruses. I’m also going to make a desire list.
So here it is:
