The real reason I get so frazzled and lose sight of my inner peace that I work so hard for is..."the picture in my head of how it's supposed to be." Louise Hay, author and spiritual teacher, believes that the word "should" needs to be eliminated from our daily vocabulary. For example, as I'm typing this very post there is an inner voice saying I "should" be doing laundry, I should get my Epicure stuff organized, I should pay the bills, I should be outside enjoying the day....The stress starts to build.
If I could stop "shoulding" all over myself, there would be less stress. This moment just as it is with no shoulds, no judgement, is perfect. I think I need to be fully aware and present more in my every day. How do you do that? Well that's a whole other blog post... But for today I am happy with my new found self awareness. Are the "shoulds" stealing your inner peace?

Last night I downloaded an audio meditation by Louise Hay and it helped me fall asleep!
I also found this amazing book on iTunes for my kids by Dr.Wayne Dyer that helps them get in touch with their inner selves in a way that is easy for kids to get. At the end there are questions that get them thinking about stuff like what are their passions and what are ways you can help others.

As the day progresses, and I get demands from the critters, the laundry pile makes its demands too...phone calls to make...errands to run...the door of possibility slowly starts to shut....I hear the kids feet hit the floor and my peaceful morning comes to an end. There's always tomorrow morning. Today I wonder, how do I keep this early morning gratitude and peace for the rest of the day? Can a sense of possibility come out of a day with fighting siblings, fussy babies, laundry piles, cooking, cleaning, phone calls, bills....? Any parents out there who have 3 kids under 6, 4 pets and a husband want to help me out with the answer to this one?

This is a local news story, not too far from where I live. It has inspired me this morning to think about ways that I too can "Pay it Forward."

I first read about gratitude when I began my journey towards getting to know my spirit. Upon reading the book "Simple Abundance" by Sarah Ban Breathnach she made it clear that gratitude was the foundation for all of it. When you watch the video of Tony Robbins, and if you can make the time to be guided through the exercise yourself you can feel the power of gratitude. Just a snapshot, one activity and all that emotion and gratitude comes flooding to your heart. Imagine the power of allowing your heart to feel gratitude everyday. What is your heart grateful for?
