Healthy Self Love

I just read a great post in Melanie Blystra’s blog in which she talks about buying beautiful roses for herself. She said she doesn’t know what came over her.

I know what’s going on. It’s called, “healthy self love.” That’s what the point of this blog has really been about.

What I love about Melanie’s story is that she’s extremely shy, and at the start of her 90 Day Experiment, she made the intention of making her beautiful handmade cards into a business, which she did. Recently, she had an opportunity to become a professional party planner, which she took advantage of. Now, she’s buying herself flowers.

I also want to acknowledge Marian Kramer, who made a comment on one of my posts that she’s hearing herself laugh again.

Laughter is the outward sign of inward hope. Healthy laughter is another sign of self love.

What sign(s) are you showing yourself? Let me know. I’d really love to hear your story.

Success Story – “I know I can do this.”

This was in the  “Comments” section of my last post. It’s from Melanie Blystra.

I am doing something I normally wouldn’t do. I am a party planner. I learned from my grandma Harris, who was the best. I love [emphasis mine, Anthony] to plan parties and the people I work for, Stephanie and her husband, know it because I put their wedding reception together and several birthday parties. So Friday night Stephanie’s husband called me and asked me to do him a favor…he asked me how much it would be to make invitations for a friend at work. I gave him a quote for the invitations and the next thing I knew I am planning a birthday party for his friend that I never met…it just kind of fell into my lap and I was like “AHHHHHH!”, but with all the practice I’ve had with doing it for my friends and family, I know I can do it for this person. I am creeping just a little bit farther out of that shell I’ve been hiding in. It is kind of weird planning a party for a person I don’t know and have only spoken to once on the phone, but I’m ready for the challenge [emphasis mine, Anthony]! Why just stop at making the cards for the party right?
Love you Anthony!

Melanie, I couldn’t be happier for you! Keep shining your light!

I love you more,

Anthony

Accessing Divine Guidance from the Field of Unlimited Potential

My friend Melanie Blystra, whom I’ve talked about before on here, is an incredibly talented artist, who specializes in hand making beautiful, custom, greeting cards.

She recently committed to honoring her talent, and share it with more people. Along those lines, to enter a card in a contest. She posted what she’s going to enter on Facebook this morning. The reason I’m writing about this is because this morning she posted, “The Idea came to me just before I woke up this morning.”

I mentioned this briefly in a previous post, when I talked about that time when we’re awake (though we may not even know we’re awake), when we don’t know who we are, and what we can’t do. We’re not operating from our beliefs, and we’re open to Divine guidance. Usually, what seems to happen is that we wake up, and write off the wisdom we’ve receive once we remember who we think we are.

One of the things I do when I wake up, while my eyes are still closed and I’m dancing in the Field of Unlimited Potential, is to ask myself, “What do I need to know now, that I’m missing?”

Tomorrow morning, I’d like to suggest that you do the same. You might be surprised at just how much wisdom you have access to!

P.S. It’s a good idea to act on what you receive!
