Emanate good vibes and watch what happens!

It doesn’t take much to think positively, but it seems as though people are quicker to be negative when faced with the set up of a negative situation.

Story: Back in the summer, I met in an accident that easily could have been more catastrophic than what it turned out to be. Frankly I needed a new car and thankfully no one was hurt. At that moment I could have panicked but I didn’t. I didn’t panic because I knew God had a plan. Whenever I’m faced with a negative roadblock I always think, ok what big plan does God have instore for me. Seriously I never let negative vibes get me down –

So positively one day we walked into the dealership and positively we did walk out with keys to a pretty shiney Mercedes. Never in a million years would I have thought I’d own a luxury car.

Believe in divine timing! there is no other time I believe that a positive flow of energy speaks to the universe and God grants us what we need more than when we handle negativity with grace.

Nothing in life is guaranteed and even at times when we positively formulate a situation to work out, it does the complete opposite and create a whole new chapter in our book and sometimes that chapter is the best yet!

So let’s all embrace the situations we are faced with and seek to find positive solutions as we enter the new year. Emanate good vibes and watch what happens!

Namaste.

Courage 

Courage 

Everyday we wake up and go about our day not knowing who or what will cross our paths and cause us to use whatever courage we have built up inside. 

My latest dilemma has been dropping my kid off at preschool. This is his first time being in a school setting, where we leave him for the entire day. Though the teachers are nice and are there to protect our kids the battle that we as parents go through when we have to leave our kids in the care of strangers is unnerving and that alone takes a lot of courage, for me.

Now looking at it through my 3 year old eyes, all he sees are crying kids and it scares him and makes him cry along. I tell him each morning to be brave, no one is gonna hurt you, the teachers love you and all the kids are your friends so don’t cry. But how easy is it for us to overcome fear? it’s hard. So the first week of school has been hard. 

Courage ~ the ability to do something that frightens one. 

Goals 

Isn’t it so easy to get frustrated and want to give up when stepping outside the realms of what you know.

My newest hobby – besides blogging  is now jewelry making and I know “knot” what I’m doing but still I do!

My visit to the craft store was in an attempt to fuel this fire. So I bought a bunch of supplies to make bracelets. I figure I spend so much money on such things so why not make them myself.

These items were on clearance so I bought them and then went to Pinterest to find DIY jewelry making ideas and I did.


However I’m sure this bracelet could have looked much better, but I got frustrated – if only you could see the one I made before lol — it was literally me adding the wishbone charm and tieing the ends – voila! But sometimes you have to add heart and so I added a heart charm…

But in everyday life adding a charm won’t make the job easier so have patience with whatever new knowledge you seek and watch as your heart and mind work together to conceive your ideas and achieve your goals.

Oh yes have fun while doing whatever it is you set your mind to, because why pursue something if your ultimate goal isn’t to be happy with the outcome?

Lucky Pennies 

Lucky Pennies 

Do you believe in luck? Have you ever found a penny and felt lucky? Well today I found two pennies, shiny as ever, heads up – I felt so lucky.

But who would have known how much luckier I was about to get. I had lost my wedding band about a year ago. I really didn’t stress it but I felt like an important piece of my life was lost and I wanted to have it replaced as soon as we could afford to. However today after finding my two lucky pennies I emptied one of my dresser drawers in an effort to “spring clean” and there I saw something sparkling in the sunlight, only this time it wasnt copper.

Gleaming in the bottom of my empty drawer was my diamond ring! Diamonds shining in my eyes, shining in my heart, making my  excitement burst and my smile wide. I was ecstatic and it was lovely and I felt lucky.

Okay, so Starbucks has been around since the 70s and even today in 2016 you have people who are intimidated to enter into the coffee giant doors. If you are like me and love you some Chipotle you know that right next door is usually a Starbucks. Today I sat eating my salad bowl and as I did I observed the different clientele that tends to flock to Starbucks.

Starbucks lovers to me seem like they actually think they are above the rest of the coffee drinkers in the world. I say this because that’s how I feel whenever I have my green queen fish lady throwing up gang signs at all the other coffee cups in the room, and that green straw! So powerful!!!!

But seriously it’s like a whole different world once you enter the doors. First off the music takes you into another dimension and everyone seems so sophisticated and all about their business. They represent the 1% of people with goals, because to order a cup of anything from Starbucks you must have a goal. This isn’t the place for “ummmmm lemmi get a” Becky you better know what you came for!

So I rarely ever enter a Starbucks, if they don’t have a drive thru where I can sit and think and be like “hmm ok lets get tha”, I must explicitly know what I want before entering those doors, and the funny thing is that it’s not the staff that makes the experience weird it’s the god damn customers! lol, my husband onced asked me “if they were from another planet or something” and seriously I wondered the same damn thing.

But after finding that one thing that made me a Starbucks regular. I realized that if you know the menu and the correct Italian word to convert to the size you want, then voila you are part of the weird alien coffee loving crowd! But honestly before I perfected my one favorite drink, I always felt a lack of confidence whenever I entered the store.  This link really breaks down the menu and sizes so you too can become a sophistated starbucks snob!The Starbucks Menu Demystified

Where size matters 

I really don’t know if the first 3 matters, but according to Starbucks Wiki these are the sizes offered:

  1. Demi 3 US fl oz (89 ml) Smallest size. Espresso shots.
  2. Short 8 US fl oz (240 ml) Smaller of the two original sizes
  3. Mini[72] 10 US fl oz (300 ml) Smaller than the three original Frappuccino sizes, offered as lower-calorie option
  4. Tall 12 US fl oz (350 ml) Larger of the two original sizes
  5. Grande 16 US fl oz (470 ml) Italian for “large”
  6. Venti 20 US fl oz (590 ml)24 US fl oz (710 mL) Italian for “twenty”
  7. Trenta 31 US fl oz (920 ml) Italian for “thirty”

Oh by the way my husband always says “ummmmmm lemmi get a, large…”lol, my star. 
Point is go with confidence until you the novice, become an expert and shine like the star we all are meant to be.
