Now, before you walk away from this blog post, hating me please read to the end, I have some good ideas that will start you on your own path of “having it all“.
I realized after posting my blog yesterday that not only am I blessed, but that I truly have it all. I’m living the American Dream and I am proud of that fact! In every aspect of my life; love, children, health, money, pets, house, cars there is really nothing that I don’t have or that I want. Now that I’ve stated this sentence, I’m sure many people reading this proclamation are thinking, “Who the F@*k does she think she is? She thinks she is all that, and I hope she dies, I hate her!” I know that is what some people are thinking because, let me tell you, my “good” friends have said this to my face over the years, and I have never understood where they are coming from. In fact, if that was your reaction, then that is exactly why you are in the position you are in, and I am in the position I am in.
I haven’t always been so lucky. Just go to the About Me page and read up on my lovely childhood to see how far I’ve come. The turning point for me was the night my husband, Ian Sharpe, died. This event, opened my eyes to knowing that there is a higher power at work. Once I surrendered to the fact that there is a God, a Creator, a Universal Life Force, whatever you want to call it – because let me tell you I don’t have all the answers, but I do believe in something greater than me – who I usually refer to as God – my entire world opened up to me. The second thing that propelled me to the place that I am at today, is asking this higher power – God – for what I wanted in life. I write my wishes down. This is how I “found” the current love of my life, David and the house that we are living in, along with my jobs, health, cars, etc… And finally, the practice that keeps this amazing force going is having gratitude for everything in my life, everyday – even the bad times.
To summarize 1) fully believe in something greater than yourself (God, Creator, etc), 2) ask for what you want, and 3) be grateful for everything that comes your way. Finally, if you are one of those people who tear down others for the goodness you see in their lives, then you must STOP this behavior immediately. What you put out into the universe, you get back ten times over. If you are jealous, or resentful, then your life will be filled with things to be jealous about and things to resent. If you are loving, grateful and truly happy for someone else, when they share their good news, then you will have things in your life that you love, that your are grateful for and things to be happy about. I guarantee this to be true!
