When rough things come up, give yourself time to acknowledge feelings, tap and process it. Then pull up the big pants, figure out some solutions to move forward and start taking small, doable action steps.
With acknowledgement, tapping and processing, we can move forward!
It’s been enjoyable to have the amazing thoughts of Louise Hay’s, I Can Do It 2019 Calendar. Here’s one from April 23rd I wanted to share with you:
“I love and approve of myself through all the ups and downs of my life.
All is truly well in my world.“
Some people might wonder what life changes are; laid off, going through a work reorganization, end of relationship, a move, even a happy event like getting married is a life change and (blending families, wedding event) can create stress.
What are some feelings you experienced when you went through a life change?
Some past ones I’ve felt were; fear, loneliness, sadness, grief and even a bit of betrayal. Glad I have tools to help with this.
What are some of yours?
Have you ever had someone create a new boundary you were irritated with?
When this happens, we own the irritation.
Unpacking this a bit and tapping about it can dial down these uncomfortable feelings and open the door for more options.
When unpacking failures and mistakes I realized that using “mistakes” was less uncomfortable than failing. We can learn and move forward when we make mistakes or failures.
When I look below the failure or mistake at the feelings, embarrassment comes up for me. It’s something I don’t enjoy experiencing. I’d like to just own my mistakes and failures, learn from them and move on. We’re not perfect and we are going to have embarrassing moments. We are human!
When we have more information then we can tap on the different parts of it, release what’s holding ourselves back, grow from it and move on.
The world will look different when we do the change within. Tapping and KD’s Adventure has opened the door for me to work on my inner self in different ways.
Let’s be open to inner healing, change and see the joy in our world more.
It is there, we need to be open to it.
Here’s a great article on EFT and staying in the positive when others around us aren’t.
This caught my eye and I wanted to share:
"Being present with your feelings is like opening a conscious doorway to your thoughts. Our feelings are caused by our thoughts.”
From Self Coaching 101, by Brooke Castillo, page 76
When we hold on to stuff we don't need it can weigh us down and hold us back from joy and peace.

Today I was browsing through the book 10 Simple Things You Can Do Now to Profoundly Change the World by Helen McConnell. Chapter two talks about the different ways we judge others
Let’s start paying attention to when judgment comes up for yourself and others. Write it down and Tap about it. Say 3 times while taping on side of hand: Even though I was judging myself or another person I choose to let it go and love myself and others as I am or they are.
We feel more joy when we are being positive
Journal or ponder on: What are things you need to keep and pull out of your bag (purse, wallet, backpack, briefcase…). This idea was inspired by: 101 Journal Questions For Women, by Tony T Robinson
This quote spoke to me, from the book Modern Energy Tapping and I wanted to share it: “If you fill your mind to overflowing with beautiful things, there can be no room left for doubt.” By Silvia Hartmann

Something to think about:
What is one thing you’d like to accomplish this week and what are some steps you can do each day to complete it?
Let’s pursue our goals and aspirations; it can add delight in our day to see progress and overflowing bliss to our lives when we complete them.
For a long time I wanted to complete this one project. It would get pulled out, dusted off and put back on the shelf because other time sensitive projects needed to be completed. Last week I had some time open up and I completed it.
My second book Joyful Life Living Uncover Your Joy is up loaded and approved on Amazon in paperback. I felt overjoyed by completing this. Next is a Kindle version.
Let’s pursue our aspirations and share them with others.
Sometimes thoughts can swirl around in the brain that hold us back from joy. These can be self-sabotaging and bring us down.
Let’s remember to tap on more joy when our head is swirling with undesirable thoughts.
When we find ourselves feeling nervous or edgy this could be a sign that we are thinking of future events and it’s time to bring our mind back to the present. Some ideas on focusing are:
Let’s check in on our thoughts when we feel uneasy and bring ourselves back to the present.
Sometimes we need some extra calm. Here’s a short tapping using points on the hand and fingers. This is inspired by Silvia Hartman’s Energy EFT. See points to left marked by lotuses
Take three deep breaths and say: I want to feel extra calm energy
Start tapping on thumb point and say; calm 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 (karate chop point) take three deep breaths. Way to go on tapping! If you want to continue repeat the steps and go for it.
Think about this and open your mind and let the ideas flow out...
What feelings do you want to have more of this year?
Today's writing topic is inspired by Leonie Dawson's, Create Your Amazing Year Workbook (2014) from page 17.
As part of my journey to be me I joined Toastmasters to gain more confidence and skill with public speaking. One of my boxes I put myself in is I couldn’t speak publicly. This was an old story I was telling myself from a past experience from childhood. The funny thing is since that experience I’ve done presentations, took and passed a college speech class and even run some workshops but I kept telling myself the old story that I couldn’t speak publicly.
Recently I gave my first speech at Toastmasters. I was nervous and shaking but I did it! I plan to keep working on this until I feel more comfortable speaking. This will help me break free of this box and continue to spread my wings to be free to be me.
