Powers of Positive Thinking

Riches, mediocrity and poverty begin in the mind.  It truly does.  The little we have coming in may not seem like much and really honestly it isn't.  When you say, "I can't" and expect the worst, you become weak and unhappy.  When you say "I can", and expect success, you fill yourself with confidence and happiness.

I have been putting out there we really need and projecting it to the powers that be, staying positive knowing when we need it most it will arrive somehow in some form.  I have definitely had my moments of doubt, it's never going to happen, very negative moments only for things to seem to take a turn for the worse.  I have a friend in Bozeman when these moments get really bad I call or text her to help snap me out of these funks and life begins to turn around a bit again. 

The last 3 days have been awesome in subtleness: 

3 days ago $$ in print credit due to an error at my lab on a customers order and taking their sweet time in getting it sent out, Yesterday what started out as a free shoot a customer won from one of my drawings upgraded the shoot to paid and ordered above what was being offered (she didn't even know of our situation w/the cancer until I slipped and said something after she had ordered), Today I said I desperately needed a coffee even though it wasn't in the budget so we went in to Borders and low and behold I had hit enough drink purchases I had a freebie:)  So it WAS budget-able more than I thought!!

So things that were needed or the hearts desire when least expected were provided for.  It has been terribly hard to accept assistance and boy have we learned what hoops those that truly are in need have to jump thru...sorry no clue WHY you would want to try and cheat the system and live a life like this???  The only thing I can think is you have no self worth and truly believe that is all you deserve, because for me this is not the life I choose to lead and I KNOW it is here because we do need it no matter how little it may is sooo much more than if we didn't put our pride aside and accept the help, but to all you out there that lie cheat and steal make a hardship situation so much harder and stressful than it should have to be.

I end this blog on this note: 

Do not let circumstances influence your thoughts and moods. By rising over them mentally, you will eventually rise over them materially.  I know this hurdle will soon be behind us and seem like a lifetime ago.  Keep in mind that positive thoughts are not enough. There have to be positive feelings and positive actions.  Together this team is sure to reward you in ways you wouldn't have thought.
