My Perfect Day Has Become Crystal Clear

A few years ago, while I was part of an intense boot camp with remarkable entrepreneurs, one of our assignments was to write about something called, My Perfect Day.  We were told to “live” our perfect day.  In order to do this we would write out our story of what our perfect day would look like.

 

How fun this was!

Step one was to sit quietly and dream.  Dream so vividly that you see yourself in your own movie of your perfect day.

It’s such a wonderful exercise to do that I suggest YOU do it!  I wrote mine out on my PC and revisit it periodically to tweak it but for the most part, My Perfect Day is constantly playing in my head. It has become crystal clear.

Watch this quick video before you begin.

My Perfect Day

My husband, John, and I live at the beach. And today is My Perfect Day.

There’s something tremendously soothing to me to see and hear the sea.

Our home is comfortably casual.

John and I didn’t need a lot of space.

Space to me creates clutter so the less we have, the better.

We actually live in a gated condo community.

Our condo is one floor with a living room along with our master bedroom opening to a sun room facing the sea. There’s one more bedroom that is primarily used as an office but is easily converted to a guest bedroom. We have 2 full bathrooms and a kitchen with an island to eat right there in the kitchen on bar stools.

There was no need for a dining room.

We are casual people and enjoy most meals, when eating at home, outside on our screened in sun room.

Our walls are painted in blues and greens to compliment the colors of the sea.

It’s very low maintenance to clean.

At this time of my life …
… it’s all about enjoying myself, my family and my friends.

This is My Perfect Day!

 

My day starts out with waking up whenever I have had enough sleep.

No matter what the weather is I’m outside in the sun room in my cushy chair with my book. I usually read each morning to stay in my positive frame of mind. It isn’t hard for me though because my life is so complete.

I smile and count my blessings today that I am able to live this lifestyle.

It was a long time coming and I’m here today!

The breeze is cool today and the sea is calm. Perfect for a mid-morning dream sleep.

Everyday John and I have a group of friends that meet for lunch at a little restaurant on the beach. We walk up the beach about a half mile and join them.

This started by chance just talking to people at the next table and questioning, “We’ll see you tomorrow?” And when the answer was yes, the date was set.

Today, friends come and go. Some days we might be missing someone and other days John and I might skip it. Or some days John might go alone without me and vice versa. But all of us know someone is always there!

It’s a great feeling having that camaraderie. We have so much fun just being together. We tease each other and laugh and have a great time. So today is no exception. We will be leaving for the walk in about an hour.

Also what I like about my perfect day is …

We get there when we get there.

Around 3-4 pm we’ll start the trek back down the beach to our condo …

walking in the water …

stopping to pick up a special shell or two.

John just shakes his head because he knows I’m bringing more shells home to add to my collection. It’s a ritual for me – to pick up at least one shell each day. I am adamant about that.

At the end of our walk I might throw some back in the sea and only keep the special “finds” of the day.

At home my treasures are laid out in the sun room for one last inspection and to dry. They’ll be added to my clear glass urn later in the evening.

 

As the sun sets, it’s a special time for me to go down to the beach and lay in our hammock.

I take several pillows and a blanket in case it starts to get cool, my iPad and a glass of iced tea.

This is my best quiet time.

John knows I’ll be there for an hour or so.

I catch up with friends from all over the world through Facebook and emails. I might play a game or two on my iPad.

It’s a perfect time to enjoy myself.

We go out to dinner! We love that!

John teases me that we have to dust our stove before we ever cook at home.

I’ve never really liked to cook. I cooked when we were living up North when the weather got cold, wet and snowy. When we had our business up there, the only thing I wanted to do was to get home, put on my fuzzy sleepers and make a comfort food type dinner.

Living in warm weather now makes it easy to go out for dinner.

Besides, our day is filled with leisure just doing things when we want … nighttime dinners out is a great way to end each day!  And also we can decide to eat whatever each of us wants. I think we’ve tried most every restaurant in town. We have our favorites because of good food and great staff.

Tonight we are heading out to our favorite pizza place.

Upon returning home, the lights on timers have come on.

I love coming home with a few strategically placed lights that are lit.

I look past the kitchen and living room to our sun room. I am drawn to our sun room every morning and every night. I can’t possibly describe to you how it looks. You will just have to come visit.

Tonight the moon is glowing and the low lights give me such a sense of contentment.

My reading chair and ottoman are calling to me.

John stretches out on the wicker sofa. Our bellies are full.

He starts to snore …

I smile …

I well up with “good” tears …

I have arrived.

I have my perfect day.

I have my perfect life.

 I encourage you to dream about what your perfect day looks like …
… Visualize yourself living in it.
Feel it …
Touch it …
Work out all the details.

What does it look like?
Where are you?
What are you doing?
Who are you with?
Why is this your perfect day?
What makes this day so wonderful?
Really feel it … Get lost in it …
Then write it down. Let the words flow describing your perfect day.

Let me know how you feel in the comments below. Share your perfect day with me. I’d love to read it!

Testing The Law Of Intention | Law Of Attraction

In February 2016, after learning about the Law of Attraction and the Law of Intention …

… I decided to do a little experiment of my own.

So I did.

Watch what I did in this 3-minute video below.

Testing The Law Of Intention

Here are the key points I used:

  • I reminded myself every morning upon waking up and every evening when going to bed that “I have lost 5 pounds this past week.” 
  • I carried this intention with me wherever I went last week.
  • I was aware that things might not go my way and that there is a reason, should that be so.
  • I reminded myself to practice present-moment awareness in all my actions.
  • I refused to allow obstacles to consume and dissipate the quality of my attention in the present moment.
  • I spoke about this both to myself and out loud in the present tense, that this intention had already been completed.

And it worked!

Try it yourself.

  • Make an intention of something important you want to accomplish.
  • Speak of it as already completed.
  • Set a deadline date for completion.
  • Keep this intention as a priority thought until your completion date.

Let me know if it works.

Leave me your intention in a comment. I will watch it for you. I will help visualize your intention.

This Law Of Intention is a beautiful experiment!

You Put Fun Into Ordinary Daily Life

This is our first blog post on our “Happy Life” blog site.

I’ll be honest … I’ve had a lot of blog sites. One was a laptop lifestyle blog. Another was my craft blog. Then John and I did one together about how we wanted everyone to “work” with us so we called it, “Work With Beth And John”.  Clever, eh?  LOL!  And there were several more.

These were all learning experiences as we aren’t the most savvy techie peeps out here!

And, frankly, I was getting pretty confused and overwhelmed trying to keep all those blog sites up and running with some sort of consistency.

So we had this idea to bring to you our lifestyle.

Just the other day, we were having dinner with a friend and I was telling him what I had texted to my four girlfriends.  We are heading to the beach for Girls Week Out on Friday.

My text was a picture of different fabrics with the text saying, “preview for craft project”.

01

That started a chain reaction of many comments from recipes we will be cooking while at the beach to …

“Who wants a chair to sit at water’s edge?”

“I found one for $14.99”

“I do!”

“I want one too!”

And that’s when our friend said:

You Put Fun Into Ordinary Daily Life

And he’s right! We taught ourselves to have fun and live being nonjudgmental. You know … live and let live. We surround ourselves with positive, happy people. We try our best to live with an attitude of gratitude daily.  And we are creative!

We think about what makes other people happy.

I honestly don’t know exactly where to begin with this blog because my head is spinning with things we’ve learned about creating a beautiful, peaceful, fun life.

We believe first, and most importantly, to learn to respect everyone.  EVERYONE! Even the not-so-nice people need your respect! Everyone has their own agenda.

Our Agenda Is To Share With You Who We Are

One of our recent activities has been to get healthy.  We are both overweight and are learning to eat when we’re hungry. Get plenty of rest. Drink tons of water. And maybe exercise a little bit. We aren’t fond of exercising. That’s a bad word!

But we know getting into shape helps you to love yourself.  It’s weird how it happens but when you look good, you feel good!

So John and I started following a Ketogenic Lifestyle.

We are no experts but we are learning everyday.

So we want a way to share what we learn …

  • to help others feel good about themselves
  • to bring you some creative ways to look at your personal life
  • to share travel experiences
  • to bring craft projects into your life

I think the list will develop more as we get started.

There’s one thing we want you to know right now and that is …

… You Are Special and Unique and …

There’s a reason you are here on this earth and …

… there’s a reason you are reading this right now!

Thanks for stopping by. We hope you come back often.

Happy Life
