Been a While

Whew. I have been deeply entrenched in the Morgan Harrington story. If you haven't heard, her body was found this week and they are now examining evidence in an effort to find the person or persons who took her life.

Dr. Harrington had let us know that he would be interviewed on Jane Valez (hyphenate something, I can't remember...Mitchell?) so I watched it and Marianne Williamson was also on there.

I am so grateful for that. I have become so bogged down lately. Rather than start my day with the uplifting videos I once did or the affirmations I find so important, I have been immersing myself in gruesome details of missing persons and sex offenders. I've also had two colds in the past three months, which never happens to me! I've been really ornery and irritable and just kind of depressed.

So, Marianne snapped me back to reality. A positive reality! I have not been operating on love. Yes, I feel very much love for the Harrington family but that's not what fueled me. I've been fueled by justice, fear and probably if I'm honest, that curiosity that attracts people to be armchair detectives.

So today, I want things to be different. I want to be the way I was prior to October 17, 2009. I want to be positive and loving. I want to expect good things. I want to expect love and peace. Are bad things still going to happen? Of course. We can't change the way the world vibrates completely but I think love goes a long way to change things in our immediate surroundings. If we get enough people doing that, things will change on a larger and larger scale.

By the way, this is day 6 without a smoke. I'm finally doing it. Yay! I'm also losing weight and just generally trying to get my life back in that happy place.

There is no reason for it not to be.

I am doing what I love with people I love.

Life is good.

Hi Lisa,,sometimes we do get ourselves wrapped up in things like this. I've done it before...thinking and trying to figure out what happened and letting it consume you. An awful tradgedy like this is just s ohard to imagine...the 'why ' of it a is overwhelming. It's sort of like PTS syndrome too. Glad you are back!

So sorry for their loss.
When I hear about these
things I pray. Even for
the people who did the
wrong doing. God told me
to forgive, the one who
wronged me in childhood.
So now I just pray for

God Bless You and Yours!!

Yeah... we can't stop what happens or what other people do, but we can alter how we react & the vibes we send out. Good to see you x

Marianne Williamson as in... the author of A Path To Love? Wow... it's been a long time since I read that one.

I'm so proud of you for quitting the smoking habit!! *HUGE HUGS!!* I hope you are super proud of yourself and you can use that for fueling all other positive energy. :)

Sometimes it seems so easy to get caught up in the bad things that happen. Good luck on the no smokes. I am still using the electronic cigs. Not as good as quitting completely but better and cheaper than tobacco. I can tell a big difference in taste, smelling, and breathing. Love Hugs and Blessings

Sending a huge, love-filled hug your way. Quitting smoking is enough to make anyone focus on the evil of this world, but I know what a compassionate, sensitive person you are, so you were vulnerable to this kind of poison. Keep opening your beautiful heart to the world, Lisa. Your energy heals.

It's so true about being affected by negative emotions. Turn them into feelings of love and life will slip back into place again. :)xx
