Sunday Funday Ramblings................

Hello There My Little Butterflies,

And how is your weekend might I ask ? I am starting to do my taxes. Not very fun at all....... God I hope I get a decent refund. I could use the money.

If I got a nice fat check, you know what I would do with it ? I would use it to go skydiving. It's on my bucket list, and for all we know I could die tomorrow so let's get this one out of the way. I've been trying to go since I was 18. A family friend promised he would take me after I turned 18. That never happened. Then when I was in college, I signed up to skydive, and that trip got cancelled. Now everyone I ask is either too broke or scared to do it.  And I want this to be the year that I jump out of a plane.

I recently bought The Secret on DVD and watched it. I enjoyed it a lot. It basically talks about the Law of Attraction. While I feel there are a couple of flaws in the film, I enjoyed it overall.

One of the things that was discussed was that you should focus on what you want, instead of putting your attention on things that aren't going your way. Which means that you could keep a gratitude journal and write down things you are thankful for.

I do have to say that I am thankful that I am currently healthy and able to take care of myself independently. I am also very grateful for my family. I have the best grandparents a girl could ever ask for, aunts that have looked out for me when others didn't and my dad who is taking great care of my grandparents. I can say that my family looks out for one another. And for that I feel very blessed. I am also very lucky that I still have a job in this economy. I am knocking on wood as I write this, but at least for now I still have my job and I feel blessed. We just let go of another one of our coworkers who was there the longest, and it was a hard pill to swallow.

One thing I don't agree with in The Secret is that everything that comes your way is a result of your thoughts. I don't always agree with that. Sometimes things happen that we have no control over, such as a death in the family or a disease. Sometimes things happen to us because they are lessons in life we have to learn the hard way and can't avoid them. So for that, I disagree. Especially since bad things can happen to us as children.

However, after certain events happen to us, I do agree that we can control how we move forward and live our lives. After you lose a job, you can control how you handle the job search.

Overall I believe in the Law of Attraction because positive does attract positive, and at the very least, being happy makes going through life a helluva lot easier. You may not always get what you want, but at the very least you have a good attitude, which makes life easier.

Okay my little delicate friends, it's time for me to log off for now. Till next time !

Butterfly kisses !

Good morning Senorita! I am definitely a believer of the power of positive thinking. P.S. I have a tattoo of a butterfly (on my butt) :) Best, P

I'll have to check out that show. I remember Oprah talking about it quite a bit at one point. If Oprah is talking about it, it must be good. ;)

Well, the comment wouldn't take.

I will email you the reasons bad things happen to good people and how negative thoughts do attract the negative and how it isn't random.

That's if you would like me to.

The book wasn't thourough enough and neither was the movie.

It didn't explain that part on purpose although a lot of wealthy people have already figured it out.

I always wanted to skydive, but I didn't do it for fear of injury. If you do it I might do it too.

I was just writing a post the other day on the secret and that I believe in most of it, but I also think some of it is out of our control.

Just telling it like it is said...

I went sky diving once it was great!! go do it!

My son wants to skydive, so when he turns 18 he can go with you.

Do you even own a bucket? (hahaha. I don't. I do have a pail, though)

I love The Secret DVD. Great stuff!

I was a Blackhawk helicopter mechanic in the Army. We had a saying about parachuting:

The only thing that falls from the sky is FOOLS and bird shit.

What? You mean I haven't "followed" you yet? Sorry, I thought I did. Now I have. There ya go.

I read 'The Secret' and had the same thoughts you had... that just thinking about something... wishing for it... isn't enough...

Strong positive thoughts and wishes headed your way!!!!
