It’s time for something positive! I’ve been practising singing a song for a special little girl in my life. I think I’m doing a reasonable job so far, the cat approaches me when I’m singing and doesn’t quickly run out of the room. He could also just be coming closer because he’s trying to claw my eyes out, I guess we’ll see…
The song is, “My Favorite Things”.
When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
No matter who you are or whatever planet you’re from, everyone has a list of favorite things.
There is a key to every heart, we all have memories, moments, tastes, smells and loved ones that immediately can make us happy.
What if part of getting over a really bad day was about taking a moment to remember or focus on some of our favorite things?
I had the recent opportunity to see Tony Robbins live and participate in a guided heart meditation, where he asks you to remember three things you are truly grateful for.
How amazing does it feel, to outwardly send a thank you to the universe with your whole heart for the blessings you just couldn’t live without! Why don’t I just sit in gratitude more often?
Also, why do I want to have sex with this man so bad! Tony Robbins is to motivational coaching what Leonard Cohen is to music! Tony really speaks to me and I’m not just talking about my crotch area…Not in a weird cultish kind of way, but in an honest everything he says seems to make a lot of sense way.
I was PMSing when I attended his seminar so the experience was a bit of an emotional roller coaster.
I laughed, I cried, hugged some strangers, checked if I looked fat in the bathroom mirror and had a shit load of carbs as soon as it was all over!
Without further delay here are some of my favorite things in no particular order:
Watching the sunset with my toes in the water,
Killing my workout,
Sipping a coconut with a straw and dancing with Papa.
Stepping off a plane in a new place to explore…
The first smell of spring lilacs,
Spending the day writing under a tree
& being an auntie.
Take a minute to think about some of your favorite things! 🙂
