MUSIC 4 YOUR SOUL

I LOVE MUSIC!

I find that when I am in a sad or flustered state, music has a way of bringing me out of it and showing me
the truth. That my problem is only as big as I choose to make it and usually it is not as tragic as I believe it to be because music always has a way of uplifting me and bringing me back to a peaceful state. Everything stops for those three minutes of music playing time and I am enthralled in that one
song, nothing else. Β I think one of the best solutions, which allows you to return back to the
present moment and help you to forget about your mind busyness, is listening to MUSIC!

Below I have listed songs which feed light to my soul and resonate feelings of joy and peace throughout my body.
I hope you can also relate to the songs below and if you have a song which uplifts you, be sure to let me know and I will post it!

ENJOY! πŸ™‚

P.S. I will continue to upload songs to this blog post as I find them or remember them. πŸ˜‰

Today, I Remember to be Grateful!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

This day is dedicated to giving thanks for the lives we live. It is a day to celebrate all in our life and be grateful.

Showing gratitude for your life is one way to bring a smile to your face. Many people suffer much more than you could ever imagine. Being grateful, even for the littlest things, can put your life in perspective and fill you with Peace and Happiness.

As Tony Robbins once said, “When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”

Today, let’s make a list of all that we are grateful for. Giving thanks to what you currently obtain in your life, is an easy way to bring more of what you desire, to you.

May everyone enjoy this day with their loved ones. For those of you who are alone, you are in my heart. If not in the physical form, then spirit. πŸ™‚

Lets raise our glasses and remind ourselves of what this day really signifies! πŸ™‚

Play on, give thanks, and enjoy your Thanksgiving Day!

Gratitude List:
Everyone who I share a loving relationship with! Friends, Family, Boyfriend, etc.
Delicious food cooked by my relatives.
My health.
My house and the bed I sleep in.
Meditation.
LOVE.
My dog Nelli, and the unconditional love she shows me daily.
Green Tea.
All of you, who are reading this right now! πŸ™‚
Everyone who inspires me and everyone who I inspire!
Technology, as I wouldn’t be able to communicate with Evan when he travels overseas.
Everything in my life which has brought me happiness and pain, as it has led me to this moment right now and I couldn’t ask for anything more!

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS WHICH I HAVE RECEIVED IN MY LIFE! πŸ™‚

Mulan *Quote* Rainy & Sunny Days.

This quote is true for all of us. We all witness and experience days of sunshine and days of rain, literally and figuratively. The rainy days pass and we welcome the sunshine with open arms. When we open our arms for the sun, we hold the knowledge from the previous rainy days, which helps guide us on the path we are currently traveling on.

Rainy days build character, challenge us to become better individuals, and awaken us to our true potential. And although our vision becomes blurry during those moments of down pour, it is our responsibility to remember that the rain is guiding and helping us, rather than making our lives miserable. We must take on a new meaning for these rainy days, as to not allow them to effect us so negatively. Is is not an easy task, but when practiced, the most rewarding feeling! πŸ™‚

As Paulo Coelho once said, If you only walk on Sunny Days you will never reach your destination.

We must live for both sunny and rainy days for us to reach our true potential. Be grateful for the rainy days, as they will lead you to greater days!

21-Day Meditation Challenge by Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra is offering one of his FREE 21-day Guided Mediation Challenges on November 5th!

This is SO exciting!

I participated in Deepak’s last 21-day meditation challenge three months ago. I can honestly say, from the bottom of my heart, that it was one of the best choices I have ever made!

Meditation allowed me to see my life through a clearer lens. It helped me become more aware of my thoughts and realize how each one of them effected me negatively or positively throughout the day. I began to sleep better and I felt more at peace with myself and others.

Although it has only been three months, much has changed in my life. I decided it was time to set new intentions and take control of my life in a more happy and positive direction.

After the challenge I began writing every morning. I dedicated 30 days to document my thoughts in pursuit of discovering my “Working Passion”. At the time I was working for a great company and enjoyed it. However, I knew deep down that it wasn’t a job which would fulfill me much longer.

About a week into my morning writings I stumbled upon an idea. I was in a coffee shop and while browsing through their greeting cards, one caught my eye. It had a very nice picture with a thoughtful message next to it. I thought to myself, “Hmm I can do that!”.

“I love to inspire others and I also enjoy graphic design. Why not combine the two and create something unique and special?” I thought.

And that is exactly what I did!

I left my job, unexpectedly, and began diving into the Greeting Card Business. And although I am not a HUGE company by any means, I took a chance! I took a leap of faith and now I am creating and selling cards which inspire me and hopefully inspire others as well!

This blog post is not about tooting my own horn, because it hasn’t been all sunshine! But, at the end of the day, believing in myself is what guided me to this point in my life; Never giving up and continually pursuing my heart’s desires.
Maybe you don’t know what your heart desires? Here is the chance to open another door and create a new path for yourself. I truly believe participating in this meditation challenge is one step closer to opening your eyes to your true potential!

Committing to the 21-day meditation challenge was the first step on the path I am now creating. It allowed me to become more aware of myself, the present moment, and my life’s purpose. If you already know your life’s passion, do it for your mind, body, and soul. It is life-changing for anyone and everyone who decides to take part in this challenge!

I would love to hear stories and people’s thoughts after the challenge is finished!

ENJOY!
