The Secret and Balloons

Enough of this nonsense.

I re-watched The Secret Last night. In all it's cheesy, new-agey, "Amway for the Soul" bullshit, it does have some good advice and I turned off the DVD feeling better. So that's a good thing. I took that good feeling to bed with me (wink wink) and woke up feeling good.

I'm going to keep with this positive feeling and start working through some steps to apply this to my life.

I'm going to hop forward and list some things I'm grateful for. I've done this before and YES, I will probably do it again. So deal.
  1. I'm grateful that I have fun plans this weekend (pool party in LA with great friends)
  2. I'm grateful that my arms are looking better than they ever have
  3. I'm grateful that I live near the beach
  4. I'm grateful that my new makeup looks awesome on my face
  5. I'm grateful that I am debt free

I woke up early and went for a walk on the beach - about an hour. I didn't want to run because my new rule is no running 2days in a row. It was really windy and not so easy to walk on the sand because it is really slanted when it's high tide. Going to Bikram tonight!

Lesson of the day: BALLOONS ARE BAD.
If you have ever wondered WHERE your balloons end up when you let them go, I will tell you. They end up in the ocean somewhere between Newport Beach and Catalina. Then they wash up on the shore, around some poor birds neck. Now, I hate birds as much as the next guy, but I really don't want your trashy stupid balloon all over my beach. Thank you very much.

OMG I think I know that wink wink. You are cracking me up. Maybe I should watch that damn video again too. Anthony Robbins can also pull me out of the slums. Whatever works.

:D

Making that kind of list is what is keeping me sane right now. I hope it is working out for you throughout the day.

I never thought about the balloon thing, but then again I never really use them. Who knew that people's wishes were turning out to be so bad for animals. eek.

I hear you on the balloons thing. Either that or my 2 y.o picks them up and starts nawing on them like chewing tobacco. Urrgghhh

Being grateful is a great thing. Awesome about the balloon tip. Someone wanted to bring balloons to our baby shower, I said no. No balloons people. NO.

Keep those thoughts positive! I like to say `What doesn`t kill you makes you stronger`...

That was me...or Kanye west.

Oh, and did you know that the concious mind can only hold one thought at a time...
Make it a positive one!

Keep your chin up, and enjoy your beach!

I LOVE bare minerals too! I've just started wearing the powder regularly, and still feel like I should put base on, but why? I'm still trying to convince myself this stuff is real makeup too. It's just weird to go from wearing base all the time to just powder. I love it though!
