20140920-080141.jpgExpect miracles! They are always waiting for you to see them and receive them. Be open. Be ready–one is on its way right now!

clearheartLast night, I was helping someone who was in very much emotional pain. The kind that impinged on her self-worth… the kind where all hurts converged and they weighed her down to the bottom of the sea of despair.

While during this painful episode, she did some things that I would call self-sabotage, and wanted to continue to make more like decisions. Those would eventually hurt her even more.

I understand how she felt. I’ve been there before, many times, but here are some things I’ve asked her to do and some things I’ve learned to do to help myself:

1. Remember someone important


We are so much more than what we have experienced thus far. We are worthy of love, blessings, and miracles. We must remember how important we are.

We must remember that only we can love ourselves that way we need to be loved.  We need to love ourselves so much that no one can take that away from us or allow ourselves to give our self-worth and our self-love away.  We can love others so much more, if we have loads of it inside.

If you can’t remember, go to #2…

2. Reach out to someone

Reach out to someone who care about you.  Someone who can tell you the truth to your face when you need to hear it, but can listen and be compassionate, when you need that more.  They will help you remember #1.

3. Do something good for yourself

We need to do things on a regular basis that make us feel good like reading, laughing, cooking, writing, journaling, meditating, running, walking, singing, whatever they may be… We need to do something loving for ourselves, especially when we are in pain.

4.  Don’t make any decisions (especially rash ones) while emotional

We can be our own worse enemies when we are hurt. We can get in the way of our own happiness or do self-sabotaging things. If we decide when we are emotionally in pain, we might make decisions that can hurt us in the end or we will regret.  Wait… Sleep on it.  Wait until you have a clear heart.

5.  Enact a “Feel Good” day

This day (and it could be a few hours) is an uninterrupted “me” time.  Schedule these days as you need them.  These “Feel Good” days are days when you do everything you enjoy and love, unplugged or not.  (You can expand it to be “Feel Good Us” day or “Feel Good Family” day too)

I am grateful to be of help to someone dear last night. I am grateful to share some techniques that may be helpful to you or someone you know, in whole or in part.

Lesson I Learned Yesterday

I am grateful for such an über day; although, it started for me at 4:30 a.m.!

Today was race day for the San Francisco Hot Chocolate 5K/15K race. The race was moved up an hour so we had to be in San Francisco pretty early. It was fuh-reezing! I can’t believe how many people were in shorts and tank tops!

The sunrise was gloriously beautiful, and it ended up being a warm, not so Winter day, at 61 degrees fahrenheit.

I did the 5K to be with most of my race friends. There was another 15K racer with us, but she is pretty fast. I didn’t want anyone to have to wait for me. HaHa. It was a great workout today, and look what we got after we finished!


We had chocolate fondue with rice krispies, banana (ate it for potassium, but normally, I won’t go out of my way to do so. LOL), cream wafers, marshmallows, and baby pretzels. Oh, and chocolate fondue!

Please have an über day filled with many blessings!

20140111-205612.jpgFirstly, I am deeply grateful to Tina Pumfrey for nominating me for the Liebster Award. I am very honored and very thankful for this award.  Wow!!  My “feel good” day yesterday became a “feel great” day!

I need some time to fully accept the award, so please bear with me. I hope to post the acceptance soon.

Tina is a singer, songwriter, musician, and teacher.  Musicians and Artists really have it hard, especially when they have full-time jobs.  They have to not only juggle their schedules, but also their finances just to do what they love.  I completely understand!  Please check out Tina Pumfrey’s Blog.

Today has been awesome thus far, even my drive up to San Francisco this morning to pick up my race packet with my good friend, Geri.  It’s been a long while since I’ve driven around San Francisco, but thankfully my friend knows the backstreets so I was able to navigate around crazy traffic, one way streets, and extremely steep hills (I have a manual transmission).

While waiting for her car to be fixed in another city and to pass time before heading to a party, we decided to go to Japan Town.  Japan Town in San Francisco is extremely fun to go to with all sorts of restaurants and stores.  Even at the $1.50 stores like Daiso and Ichiban Kan, you can find all sorts of life hack type products that will surprise you.  Let’s just say, we lost track of time!  HaHa!

We made it to the party after we picked up Geri‘s car.  I am lucky, through my friends, to meet people that are very interesting and kind, so my fish bowl is constantly growing. I met someone that may be able to help me with a product I am working on, and she has a nespresso machine that totally piqued my curiosity. I like cool gadgets and figuring out how they tick. She and her husband also had over a hundred different kinds of games (board games, card games, etc), and I learned how to play qwirkle. It’s a tile game that’s like an intuitive domino slash something else, I can’t describe.

I like playing new games, and learning new things, and I am grateful that I had an opportunity to play and learn a lot today.

gratefulIt has been a wonderful month for The Atidecrem Life Project.  I would like to dedicate this post to you.

Thank you for reading my posts, and for letting me know you like it.  Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note.  Thank you for visiting my blog, too.  I am deeply grateful to you.

Also, to my fellow bloggers… Thank you for sharing your posts, pictures, stories, and poems.  I have enjoyed them, especially the ones about gratitude, happiness, and joy.  You are inspiration!

(P.S.: I hope all the “thank you’s” in my image are alright.)

I am grateful for everyone in my life. To those who lift me up and those who can teach me so I can be better.

I am grateful for everything I have in my life, like a roof over my head, running water, electricity, etc…–basic necessities that many people in this world do not have.

I am grateful for the healing I received, because I can stand, walk, sit, and drive again. I must always remember what I took for granted when I lost them and be grateful that I have them back.

I am grateful for validations I received in regards to the positive and healing changes I have made to re-align my life. Awareness and blessings are coming into my life in increasing abundance, and I am getting to know and love my most authentic self.
