You know that silent, still voice of reason that lives at the core of your being?
That voice that you tend to ignore & then kick yourself for not listening to when something blows up in your face?
That is the voice of…
I was in my bedroom, reading yet another book that discussed the law of attraction.
I'd been dabbling with this new age, spirituality concept for about 6 months by now but still rolled my eyes at most of what I read. I criticized the concepts as fast as I was reading them and doubted most of the results I read.
"Oh, they must just be really lucky" or "that's totally staged and not possible."
"Mindfulness for Busy Ladies" just wasn't completely cutting it for me - nor was it 100% clear.
Today, the light bulb went off.
I believe in the Law of Attraction - the belief that the power of your thoughts, feelings & words play a significant role in creating your current and future life.

The other night a family member was rushed to the hospital. Matt & I volunteered to go to their house & pack an overnight bag. We were in & out in under 10 minutes.

I used to be a chronic complainer. Nothing would ever go right, somebody was always being a jerk & life wasn’t fair. Ever.
Here’s what my life looked like at the time:
I was in massive debt, behind on almost every payment, & avoiding daily phone calls from collection agencies. I was convinced at any minute they were going to show up and repo my car.
I had this on-again-off-again relationship on the go. It was reaching it’s 2-year anniversary.
I quit my job & I lived in my uncle’s basement
What I’ve come to learn is that all the energy I spent complaining, only trained my brain to find more things to complain about!
It wasn’t necessarily that so many things in my life were terrible, I had just conditioned myself to only see the crappy parts.
