Feel like I have been ‘off world’, this week. It’s been a bit of a bizarre week with a lot of unusual things happening and, as a result, the world has passed me by so I feel like I’ve been ‘somewhere else’.
First up, I hold the Hay House World Summit 2013 accountable. What a FABULOUS distraction! I spent the first 4 days listening avidly to everyone I could ~ obviously, I couldn’t listen to ALL the amazing interviews Hay House had available each day, but I did make sure to listen to my ‘favourites’ and to some New Inspirational People.
The wonderful thing about being connected to my laptop for hours at a time was that I caught up on some crafting. I love that I have made birthday cards and housewarming cards ~ Daniel and Lauren are moving into their new apartment today, so we indulged in some essential items (like saucepans!!) as our housewarming gift; and Lovely Lilli has been relocating this week, too. I do love having an ‘excuse’ – and the time! – to create new cards!
Every time I listen to anything with Louise Hay I am inspired to created affirmation cards! Within the first day of the Hay House World Summit, I had created half a dozen cards and I am now up to 18! I had a moment of inspiration, over the weekend, to create an affirmation card display, for the downstairs toilet. Cheryl Richardson, Jack Canfield and David Wood all talk about where they display their affirmations and Vision Boards, and the toilet door is the perfect place ~ captive audience and all. After a lot of planning and thinking and measuring, I realised that a simple cork noticeboard would suffice and I just needed to make about 60 affirmation cards! With the help of all my wonderful Stampin’ Up! product, and Louise Hay/Hay House Summit, I am well on my way.
I am looking forward to my SU! order of NEW product arriving so I can create some MORE affirmation cards!
In and around that, I have a Goal for June: To have a “Latte” with each of the people in Motivational Magic. And … I’m LOVING IT! I have most of the group booked in for a catch up session and think that it might be possible to chat to everyone before the end of the month – but it’s a squeeze! In fact, it’s quite the organisational challenge! So far, I have ‘attended’ 4 chats/lattes and had such a wonderful experience with each of them. Such different people and all a delight to spend time with. Another two, today … I love, love, LOVE that I can chat with the folks interstate and overseas ~ Skype is such a gift! I feel so much closer to my overseas MM ‘family’ and look forward to the interstate gals hooking up. A couple more dates to add to my calendar and I’ll have all 26 Motivational Magic members organised for a latte catchup!
The one thing that has been ‘missing in action’ is my reading. I still haven’t finished a book this month! I simply cannot figure out how to craft, listen to the interviews (only up for 10 days) and read, as well as do the ‘normal’ things I do! So, the reading has taken a back seat and people like Alex Woodard, Denise Linn, Colette Baron-Reid, Nick Ortner and Jack Canfield have take pole position in my priorities. It IS a JOY to have such opportunities and options!
