Do you have pain in your body?

I finally found a visual chart that explains how emotions can get trapped in areas of our body and cause pain. Now, some people may think this is fruity but it’s a real thing. Our bodies respond to positivity, negativity, trauma, happiness and the like. In chinese culture, the energy or lifeforce of our bodies, our qi (“chee”) is greatly affected by things like our emotions and even our environment. This is why Feng Shui is revered so much in many Asian cultures.

What are you grateful for this week?

I try to make my gratitude journal a daily thing in my life but sometimes you just get busy! This post will serve as my gratitude journal entry for today. It’s really powerful when you write down what you are grateful for. It creates awareness, appreciation and love for your life and that, in turn, creates more amazingness to enter into your world.

Things I am grateful for today:

  1. My parents – they are so supportive and wonderful to me every day but so much so during this time in my life when I need them a lot. Just having had a baby 7 weeks ago, they have been instrumental in helping me and babysitting!
  2. Life/Good Health – This is on my list every day since I almost lost my life to cancer. Health is everything. I truly learned the importance of a positive attitude during that awful time and I am so grateful to wake up breathing every day.
  3. My miracle daughter – 7 weeks old today! She was supposed to be something I would never be able to have because I was supposed to be infertile after treatment but somehow God made it possible and she chose me as her Mom against all odds. Thank you, Ava!
  4. Tom’s Shoes – I. Love. Toms. Shoes. They are so comfortable and I can walk in them for miles! (Ask me about the time I walked 100 blocks in them in NYC during Winter).
  5. Snapchat – Ok, this one may seem dumb but I have to say….I really like watching people enjoy their lives on snapchat. Follow me: heatherjuliet

What’s your magical moment?

Have you ever had a moment in life when you maybe didn’t expect it, but you found yourself looking at your life from the outside and relishing in the bliss? Let me explain….

I have only had this happen a small handful of times, but these magical moments I am describing are those times when you are all of the sudden stricken with a deep feeling of happiness for life. More like a blissful state that is usually fleeting but you get to relish in the moment for a minute or two but you don’t want the feeling to end. They usually come during times of simplicity, like watching a beautiful sunset with friends or sitting on the beach reading when a child gleefully playing in the ocean captivates your attention.

I LOVE these moments!!

Interestingly enough they don’t usually happen during big life events but more during the smaller joys and experiences in life, a lot of times, when you least expect it. It’s interesting how that works isn’t it? One thing I’ve learned in life is: it IS the simple things. It’s the simple things that matter and mean the most.

Have you ever had these moments or consciously recognized them? I’d love to hear your experiences!
