May 21, 2016 is when Brian & I got married!

We both took the day off and celebrated with each other! (Wow, it was nice to just have the day off together!)

We planned a fancy dinner and a movie – Guardians of the Galaxy 2. So of course, Brian bought the first Guardians of the galaxy and we watched that over our brunch. Then we dressed to go out to dinner, driving into the city. Someone gave us a gift card to five different choices in Buckhead (richy rich!) restaurants. We picked the French restaurant, Bistro Niko. I couldn’t wait.

My husband and I planned this out halfway and played it by ear the other half. We had been so busy, we didn’t even give each other cards, haha! But it was the last thing on our mind – we truly didn’t care. We know we love each other so much!!

We dressed quite spiffy.

We may have been the only ones there dressed up.

Lookin’ sharp!

They tried to seat us inside the restaurant, but it was too cold and the music played so loud that my husband and I had to shout at each other across the table to hear one another. The waiter came and after he finished talking about the specials, I asked to be seated outside. He gave us one tiny little table (like a tiny patio table)  with a broken seat. After we switched the broken seat, it was very cozy outside. Perfect weather. (You guys know how I connect with nature. Of course, we were in a city, but there were trees and sky.) My husband and I were sitting pretty close together, as well, and could talk easily.

DRINKS:

I ordered a bottle of red wine, pinot noir. I was thrilled, because I’d never done that before (acted rich and ordered a bottle of wine at a restaurant). I’d seen people do it so many times before, but it was never me. It was that night!!!

My husband doesn’t care for red wine, so he ordered white by the glass. (I’m okay that I didn’t have to share my bottle).

FOOD:

  1. We got appetizers, me some ravioli pasta, he some kind of seafood (I’m allergic to seafood).
  2. For main dish, I got coq au vin that juicily fell off the bone, and he got some kind of seafood. (What’s that fish that looks like a Stingray? Doesn’t look like it on the plate though.) Gosh, everything we tasted was so divine and completely homemade. We were ultra impressed.
  3. Then, because I gushed it was our anniversary, we got a free dessert that was like heaven reached down and handed me goodness overflowing. It said “Bon Anniversare” in chocolate writing on the plate. Homemade ice-cream in between cream puffs and chocolate that was most likely also homemade.

GUYS HERE WAS THE KICKER  – THE THING THAT REALLY TOOK THE CAKE.

We aren’t rich in life, yet, maybe one day. We had a gift card to an expensive restaurant and really lived it up. As a couple who was sitting diagonal to us left their table, our waiter gently informed us that they completely paid our bill. 

At first, I didn’t hear it too well. Brian responded first with complete… “Really? Oh wow. Really?” The waiter assured us that yes, that nice couple comes there every week and requests him (Alex, I believe his name was). The couple had asked Alex why we were so dressed up. (I was wearing a nice, long strapless dress while he wore his wedding apparel essentially. Most people there were wearing shorts.) Alex told them it was our anniversary and… the amazing gesture happened.

We couldn’t even thank these generous people! Brian and I wonder what it would be like to have enough money to come here every week, and pay for someone else’s dinner after that! But our hearts are just opened to the Anniversary Present they gave us, as we were total strangers. We couldn’t believe it all night. That means also that we get to go on another date with our gift card!! (And guys,  yes, we did tip the awesome waiter pretty well, don’t worry.)

But guys, all you who believe in fate, think about what happened. If we hadn’t sat at the right place, outside on the patio… if I hadn’t requested we go outside, if we didn’t get real dressed up… that might not have happened. But the synchronicity occurred, which was a  blessing to us. This can apply to your life, because when synchronicity occurs in your life, that is a sign that you’re making the right choices. You are where you are meant to be at this moment in time.

And it ALSO shows there are kind people out there. (Some kind people with money.) Bada bing!

anniversary 2

Au Revoir, Bistro Niko!

SUCH A LOVELY DATE. I tried to take lots of pictures. Then we made a quick stop to his parents house real fast, who actually gave us an anniversary card (handmade) and gift, too. ❤

And then we saw the movie, which was awesome! Complete with slushy mixed with all flavors, and a collectible popcorn bucket of the head of baby Groot which can be turned into a flower pot later, which sold me.

We then stopped at his parents house again to chat with his aunt who is in town. And then we came home completely exhausted, me having to get up and go to work tomorrow. So we made the eat-slice-of-your-wedding-cake event happen quickly because it was 2 AM. We did the tradition, though! It tasted goood! (I love cake).

Yes, this was the top of our wedding cake! Nice, light purple with sparkles. 

And then, I went to sleeeeeeep because I was soooo tired.

But very happy. 🙂

(Only thing is, I wanted to actually put my wedding dress on again that day and, it didn’t happen. Next time. haha)

Desire Creating

Standard

“Desire is a fresh, free feeling of anticipating wonderful expansion. The feeling of desire is truly the feeling of life flowing through you. But many people… while they are using words of desire, they are offering a vibration of lack. They come to think that the feeling of desire is like wanting something that they do not have. But there is no feeling of lack in pure desire.”

–by Esther and Jerry Hicks

From the book Ask and it is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires

Every time I feel the struggling in creating my reality, I pick up this book, which is the best tool I’ve grown to love.

You may have heard the Law of Attraction (LOA). This creating your reality is a concept that you can draw anything into your life that you want, and this book suggests a way to do that is by putting this emotion of “desire” out into the universe, and thinking about it, meditating up on it, but in a positive way.

I usually see what I’m doing wrong once a I read just one paragraph in my continuing read of this book. I’m like halfway through the book, but I just pick it up, continue where I left off, get an ah-ha moment, and underline it (or highlight it).

My ah-ha moment was the bottom line: “But there is no feeling of lack in pure desire.” To create something in your life, you need to put this energy of joyful desire into it. So, if I want money, I have to produce the FEELING of how excited I be once this raise/promotion/more money comes into my life. I can’t send out the negative feeling of worry because I don’t have money now – that’s the “vibration of lack.”

This is a struggle, but when I pull it off, it’s always worth it.

I’ve been working hard at creating my reality for years. My first time I impressed myself was getting my first car. I was out of college, and it was clear my parents weren’t getting me a car, no one was. I just had savings, and that’s it. No real job to give me real money. But I craved independence and was tired of my father carting around my brothers and me all the time. I wanted a car! So I projected into the universe, envisioning the perfect, reliable car for me, getting the car for a reasonable price from my savings.

I looked at craigslist and studied sellers. But I just didn’t find a GOOD, running, safe, reliable car for my really, really low price I was asking for.

Then my friend said there was a Salvation Army Car auction. I enlisted a few of my guy friends to come inspect out the cars, see which one was the best, and bid on it. (I had great friends. 🙂 ) Which happened, and I got the perfect car for MORE than the perfect price!!

God,was I excited. I pulled it off. I got a car in my reality, and one more step towards being independent.

Flashback to when I got my first car – so excited. I created my reality!

That’s just the first time I’ve created my reality. I’ve done it with jobs, boyfriends, current husband, promotions, etc. I’ve got a lot to work on still.

I’m not saying that it’s an automatic thing. It takes positive thought, details, concentration, and not giving up! And it also may not occur if it’s not MEANT to be by the Spirit. Like, I didn’t get certain jobs because I was MEANT to have the ones I have now, or whatever. That’s the way I view that. But to a big extent, this Law of Attraction has worked for me.

This topic is so expansive, I won’t share all in one blog. But feel free to ask me any questions or tell me your personal experiences with the LOA and creating your reality, because I’m interested in knowing others’ thoughts & stories!

Namaste with Love,

Dance ~ a poem

Standard
The Creator made all
this universe inhale life
and sat back to watch it play.
 
Now who pulls at the painful
strings to tug the Earth
to this unwanted dance?

earth dancingThis little poem says a lot.
I think of how this planet is so beautiful and has potential for such joy. But the way our lives are run have great flaws, and so everything can’t be the best it can be.
I am not deep into politics, and I don’t have ideas of how to fix government. I would, however, vouch for finding out who all, with war-ful hearts, are causing the injustice, un-peace,  dissatisfaction, and unfairness in our world, and then replace them with people who care about:
1) The planet Earth and keeping her healthy and happy and
2) The people and animals who inhabit the planet, and making sure we are also healthy and happy.
Different countries (and states) also run in different manners. But one that perhaps can relate is money. Through my involvement in New Age, I’ve listened to speakers and writers w ho have done the research and are convinced there is enough money in this whole world for everyone to have some and no one to go hungry. BUT the people with the power want the money, and don’t want to give it away. Do your own research and think what you will, but this is what I believe.
Despite all of that, I still think that most people are over-worked and underpaid. I say this through my personal experience and what I observe. We spend most of our lives working, and we absolutely must work to pay bills (unless you inherit money or are married to someone with money or something of that nature). And we work so much, often we forget that the most PRECIOUS thing we have on this planet is TIME with people we love! 
In my life, although  I completely love my careers now and the work that I do, I’m finding I’m not spending time at home and with my husband like I want. Especially my nights and weekends are taken away, because I work managing events, and many events are on nights and weekends! I do not want to complain, I just want more time with my husband and more time at home, and that’s something personal that I’m going to have to work through by projecting what I want for the future. That’s another good thing about creating your own reality… you find what you want and what you don’t want through experience, and then you have to take steps to change it. In my case, I’m not sure how I am going to create time for myself and my husband, but cosmically, what is supposed to happen will happen once I start creating the thoughts.
This is getting me into the topic of creating my own reality, which I should save for another day. If you have an interest in that topic, you can ask me about it, and/or I would strongly recommend the book: Ask and It is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther and Jerry Hicks. 
That all being said, there are MANY positive changes that Mother Earth needs to go through, and our lives needs to go through! But it has to start with us. Praying (like projecting your desires) is a power that we all have. If you want positive change in this world to take place with our leaders, our planet’s health, saving our animals, making a more fair work system or health insurance system or anything else you can think of… please pray with me on it. Project positive into the future.
Namaste!!
