Taking steps towards my future...

I've had a productive few days...

I'm transitioning really easily to a vegan diet this time around. The weather is REALLY helping, but I'm not going to diss anything that helps! I'm feeling great, and I figure that is the ditching of the high salt/high sugar foods. I'm less dehydrated, and my blood sugar is very obviously much more stable, which is just fantastic! I've just had a new cycle start in recent days and haven't had the huge dip in bloody sugar that I normally experience. I was very tired last night having been out at Rach's blessingway all day, but that's pretty par for the course for me, being an introvert.

As well as this, I ordered my 6 months plan from A-gender. So, that should arrive some time in the next five weeks or so. I order it to start in January, but I'm kind of thinking maybe I should have said February, LOL, because well, I have yet to convince Dave to do this. I believe he will though, so even if January is a good cycle for us, and he's only been on the supplements for 8 weeks, and me too, I think it should be ok.

He was saying yesterday that I should LOA us a big lottery win - he's so funny! I said that 50% of LOA is action, and 50% is the Universe reacting. If we want money we have to put in some effort! I said that I do things in the belief that the Universe will come to the party. And as an example, I told him I'd paid $119 for a six month plan to conceive a girl. Just like I bought the bike buggy for when we've moved closer to the boys' school. I have faith these things will happen, so I act accordingly, in preparation. I mean what would be the use of me waiting to get the six month plan (which takes time to get here) until Dave agreed. What if he agreed in December, and then I was caught short, and would have to wait till the plan got here and until he'd taken the supplements, which would be another three months.

It's all about preparing in faith.

Oh, just as I'm writing this, Bryn comes to me with a Bob the Builder DVD and goes, "B for Bobby!" I'll have to ask Dave is he showed Bryn that, or maybe one of the boys, or maybe Bryn is starting to recognise the Bs in words (which would not be surprising as he's been "reading" ABD, on his DVDs for a while now (all being ABC tv productions, hahaha)...

So, yes, anyway, Spring is nearly here and I'm feeling rather Springy and refreshed and looking forward to the future!

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Do you have low self-esteem?

I don't.

I used to think I did, but having met several people who really do have low self-esteem, I've now come to realise I actually have low confidence (and note I don't say low self-confidence, but more on that later), and that is a different breed of animal all together.

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about people who constantly put themselves down. If you are a participant in social media you might be aware of this kind of person. Everyone is smarter than them, prettier than them, more motivated, better organised, or has greater talent than them. It goes further, some of these people are not at all opposed to running themselves down to others with comments like, 'I'm so fat' (and not in a proud, fat acceptance way, but in a negative, self-loathing kind of way), or 'I'm stupid' or 'I'm ugly'.

Some people are just fishing for compliments, of course, but the ones who persist; the ones who simply cannot take a complimen…
