There were signs of spring coming this weekend when I was at Kennedy School with my Hubby. It was great to see and added to my joy!
Let's look for signs of spring and additional joy!
I was going in for day surgery and I was concerned about going under. It has taken a long time for me to wake up before. I was seeing a hypnotherapist at the time and he helped with this.
He plugged in a phrase for others to say to me for calming. My Mom friend was there and she used it before and after surgery. I went under and woke up easier and I felt calmer. I was glad to have someone there open to doing this for me.
Six years later I still have the phrase up for me to see. When I feel nervous I can tap and say it out loud or in my head. It still feels calming.

When we go through life changes it can be a struggle and we could need to reach out to others for a bit of support.
Let’s be open to reaching out to others when needed and being supportive when we can too.
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.

Recently I noticed I haven’t been doing as much self-care for my body. I need to change this. I took one off the calendar I wasn’t doing and added ones that I am open to doing. I decided to have some reminders for these on my calendar.
I use to do yoga daily and I want to bring it back into my life again. It felt great doing it and my body was happier too.
Recently I was feeling pulled in many directions. While chatting with a friend it came to me that I need to focus on certain areas at this time. I can pick up and do the other things as my schedule opens up.
