Strange Magic

November 27, 2014

There is so much to be grateful for…. When I woke up this morning, I went through my normal routine of giving thanks for all the wonderful things in my life.

To paint a picture, I am at the moment with my boyfriends family in a little house with a lot of people, in the beautiful town of Fresno. Now honestly, let’s be real Fresno is not my first choice and as much as I adore his family, the last thing I wanted to do is travel to Fresno for 48 hours, sleep in a teenagers bunk bed and have a big dead Turkey on the dining table.

I have been working insane hours, driving 3 plus hours a day, sleeping very little and the stress I have been under has caused my body to break down. My boudoir business is growing faster than I can handle and although it is everything I have wished for over the last 15 years, I am struggling to keep it all together.

If there is one thing I know about myself, it is that I am a hard ass worker and I will stop at nothing to create everything I want in my life. But over the last couple months, the 14 hour days, 7 days a week has driven me to my breaking point. I have been working on hiring someone, but just finding the time to do that and train that person has been challenging.

So… as my eyes slowly open this early morning, as a 2 year old is running through the house screaming and neither one of us has slept well because we are two gown adults sleeping in a bunk bed, my back hurts, and it’s fucking cold, I remember…. I remember that I am a lucky girl. I am a very very lucky girl.

I am laying next to the man of my dreams, I am healthy, the people I love are healthy, I have everything I need and I get to wake up every morning and do what I love. I get to create the life that I want and everyday and when I flutter my eyes open it really does feel as if there is magic all around me.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday to connect what you are grateful for, but today feels no different than any other day for me because I am grateful for all the people and things my life is blessed with everyday of my life. We so often and so easily get caught up in the things that we don’t have and the life we may not have yet, but if you can practice daily gratitude, then I promise you, you will create more space for all that you wish for to show up. Gratitude fills your heart and moves you from limitation and fear to expansion and love. Gratitude is the key to creating magic in your life.

So on this special day, I encourage you to make everyday this special, to open your heart a little more and forget about what you don’t have a little less. To remember that anything is possible and yes, you can create whatever you want into your life.

You just have to put your mind to it!

Thank you for visiting my blog, I love and appreciate you and thank you for taking to the time to read my posts and wherever you are in the world, I wish you a magical day of giving thanks with the people you love.

    Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I
    decided to browse your website on my iphone

    I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my phone ..
