This sounds like an interesting way to give kids a chance to read more if they choose. Someone was thinking outside the box. I love this!
The other day I was writing up notes for an upcoming group. They wanted me to do something on clutter.
When I was writing about this some unexpected anger came up around how I’d been treated by another. I realized I needed to release some anger and forgive the other person. Sometimes our expectations of clutter or something else doesn’t match another’s and it’s better to let anger go since it hurts us more carrying it around.
Let’s honor where we are at, release anger and forgive others (when we can).
What is one thing you can let go of this weekend.
It can be a feeling (sad, anger, irritated), recycle papers off your desk or let go of something else in your space you don't need any more.
When our minds and spaces are clearer we can feel more relaxed.
Even though speaking my truth during the confrontation still feels like a success. I felt a bit unsettled about it later.
I tapped and talked about it. I was pleased I had improved on speaking my truth and I realized there was room for growth. At times I could say less.
Let’s remember to keep it simple when needed while speaking our truth gently.
Recently someone confronted me about something they thought I was doing and they misunderstood. A few years ago, I would have frozen, felt mad and bad. This time I spoke my truth kindly and the person understood.
During the Holidays we need to speak up at times in a kind way. When we do this it can bring understanding, possibly diffuse a situation and there can be more peace at this time with family and friends.
Has fear held you back at times from doing something you really want to do? You aren’t alone. Ways I have worked on this are:
These were amazing learning experiences for me and it felt great to dial down the fear and go for it! That's me below lifting off in a helicopter at sunset at the Oregon Coast. What a ride!
What have you done recently you are proud of?

During a big change I had supportive friends that would gently remind me of my tools. I shared them with them and they could remind me. They even came in handy for them at times.
When we are open with others it can help them and yourself in times of need.
In Heart Thoughts by Louise L. Hay there’s a quote on page 106:
“Healing means accepting all parts of yourselves, not just the parts we like, but all of us.”
It’s important to accept all of ourselves in each moment.

Life is busy at times; the weekends are even busier than the weekdays for us. This last few weekend was packed full but we made sure to fit in some fun.
We hadn’t been up the gorge for a while so we cruised up to Stevenson Oregon and had lunch by the river. It was great to fit in some fun between all the responsibilities needing to get done.
Let’s remember to fit in some fun between the hustle and bustle in our lives.
We never know what will come in the day. I went to one of the groups I run and it led to being invited to be a part of a few 2019 events.
Let’s be open to what come. We never know what will show up.
One day I was writing notes for a group I do and I realized I hadn’t checked in on my big why for a while. I was surprised how somethings were the same and some had grown.
One of mine was having adventures small to big and tapping into my younger self. When we are young we look at things with wonder and joy and I want to continue to experience this even in my 90’s.
Let's tap into our younger self and see the world with wonder and joy.
What is your treasure energy number, choose between: -7 to +7 & beyond
Take a few deep breaths and say: I want more treasure energy
Start tapping on thumb point and say: More treasure energy
Take another deep breath move to the next point and repeat this through all the points on the picture below. After the last point take a few deep breaths and check your number repeat this until your number is a plus number.
Congrats on tapping!
When my Honey & I stopped for lunch at a casino. The casino had a card you could sign up for and it gave us $5 off our meal and $5 to play. We won a few dollars then it was time to eat. After lunch we still had some free casino card money to spend. I chose a new machine and won $38. It was fun to play for free and leave with some extra money in our pocket.
Let’s be open to receiving unexpected treasures that show up
When I realized I wanted to guide people by sharing what I had learned including tapping. Then in walked Helen McConnell into my life. She continues to believe and mentor me on this journey.
She wrote a book I love: 10 Simple Things You Can Do Now To Profoundly Change the World. It’s a book on changing the world by changing ourselves. This is one I keep around and continue to go through. It often has ideas that pop out at me. One that did today was on page 3:
“Hiding your true self away is a lot of work and takes tremendous energy. Energy that you could be using for something important!”
It has been a go to for me to hide myself away but I want to share what I have learned and to do this I need to be visible and true to myself. Onward on my journey to guide.
When we need solutions to issues often we get stuck in a box, looking outside of it can be helpful. Here's a great example of it.
Let's be open to looking outside the box for answers, we never know what ideas could come from it.
Here's a great quote from: Love for No Reason by Marcie Shimoff and Carol Kline
“Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it.
Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it.” – Thaddeus Golas, twentieth-century philosopher
This reminded me of the set up statement for Gary Craig style tapping that I use. Even though I feel _____ I love and accept myself. When tapping on something we are also tapping in loving ourselves.
Let’s love ourselves where we are at.

Friends are gifts that come into our lives and bring us joy and companionship.
Let’s be open to new friends in our lives.
This is me hugging a new friend (a roo) at the Fall City Wallaby Ranch. I was a bit nervous at first but he was gentle, sweet and kind.
