Stormy Seas.

Circa Seas 015

Doing a second post today to show this “Ocean Loft’ full sitting set being offered by [CIRCA] at the Color Me Project event.  The teal and blue grey set comes with the chairs that have 14 animations each.  What I especially like is that each chair comes with different animations.  There are two round tables with decor, a coffee table and a landscape painting of a stormy sea.   You can find this whole set at 50% off at the Color Me Project event from March 14th through March 19th.

It’s a mundane Tuesday, though given that I’ve had a terrible headache most of the day and still do, my thinking is a bit clouded.  So hopefully, it’s a fabulous day for the rest of you.

Lesson 51

Dreaming

© The Best Year of Your Life by Debbie Ford

Lesson 51: The Love You Need

We all yearn for different expressions of love at different times in our lives. Sometimes we need acceptance and gentleness; at other times we crave passion and adventure. And although we often look to others to give us the love we need, the highest act of self-love is to learn how to give it to ourselves.

When we take the time to listen to the desires of our hearts, we nurture ourselves from the inside out. By giving ourselves the love we need, we no longer look to others to complete us.

Your Self-Love Assignment

For the next five days, take some time each morning to connect with yourself. Close your eyes and take a few breaths into the area around your heart. As you breathe in, notice any feelings or emotions that are present. Then ask yourself, “What is the love I need right now?” Is it acceptance? Gentleness? Acknowledgment? Respect? Rest? Appreciation?

As you hear the kind of love your heart is longing for, take five more minutes to shower yourself in that type of love.

[Circa] Living/Z is for…(challenge)

Snapshot_024

Today I am finishing off the Alphabet Challenge with this zebra cream cropped blouse from Vive Nine and zebra sunglasses from Gabriel that were part of the swagbag gift from the Hollywood event that happened several months ago.   The challenge has been fun and I really enjoyed getting to dig into my inventory.    With this outfit I am also wearing a “Serendipity” diamond ball ring from [Circa] Living that is available as a gacha item at The Monochromatic Fair that runs until May 2, 2014.   There are 18 rings to win, with 8 being rare colors.

I am also showing off this excellent “Charlotte Bay” room set from [Circa] Living that you can also find at The Monochromatic Fair.  There are single and couple animations in the sofa swing and sit-lay single animations in the sofa, with 8 blue textures you can choose from to complement your taste and decor.

The retro chairs also give you several options of fabrics and sit animations.  It is a very detailed and well designed set.  The coffee table has three wood colors that you can change on touch.   The rest of the pieces in the set really fit so well in any room.  I added a few pieces like the glass bowl and vase with flowers and books in the corner crates to finish the room.

Lesson 33

Snapshot_033666p

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

I love many of her quotes, because they embody such strength and are always full of wisdom.

Lesson 33:  Choose Powerful Interpretations

Despite how it seems, it’s never the events of our lives that cause us pain or suffering. It’s what we make those incidents mean about us that either builds or diminishes our self-love. Having someone not return your smile or your phone call, for example, may not necessarily upset you, but how you interpret these situations will very likely influence the way you feel about yourself.

Each interpretation we make either adds to the quality of our life or takes away from it. This week, choose powerful interpretations!

Your Self-Love Assignment

Think of one situation or circumstance from your past that you’ve deemed painful, embarrassing, or hurtful. Notice how you interpreted this event by examining what you made it mean about you.

Now invent three positive interpretations of this occurrence that would leave you feeling powerful and strong, rather than weak and victimized.

Pick the interpretation that makes you feel the best about yourself – the one that most nurtures your soul and feeds your self-love.

Write this interpretation down on a sticky note or an index card, and read it to yourself every day this week.

Self-Love Points Earned

Give yourself 50 points every time you choose a powerful interpretation.
