Mocha Angels 365. Day 49.

Day Two of work.

The second step of becoming deeply fulfilled by all that you do is to bless your current job with love. You don’t have to believe what you are saying. Just say it anyway. Bless the building, the parking lot, the elevators, the equipment, the doors, the floor, and most important, the people who work there and the customers who walk in the door. Bless everything and everyone in the building with love.

If there’s a co-worker who bothers you, again, bless him or her with love. If she is critical, affirm she is loving and full of praise. If he is grouchy, affirm that he is cheerful and fun to be around.

Why? Because this isn’t about them. It’s about you. You have to be the one to start changing your consciousness about your job. Try it. See how it makes you feel. And this isn’t a one-time occurrence. Repeat as long as you work there.

Up next, part three.

The Work Series:

Day One of work: “I am deeply fulfilled by all that I do.”

Mocha Angels 365. Day 48.

I’m going to talk about work for the next few days. This is based on Louise Hay’s concepts in You Can Heal Your Life.

Wouldn’t you love to be deeply fulfilled by all that you do? The joy and meaning that would bring to your life would be spectacular.

The first thing to do is to check your negative thinking about your current job:

  • I hate this place.
  • My boss is an ass.
  • These people get on my last good nerve.
  • I don’t make enough money.
  • I am so tired of y’all I could just spit.
  • My co-workers suck.
  • Who hired these people?
  • This is way more work than I expected.
  • I am so tired of this s@%!
  • I work here? How did I end up here? WTF?
  • This is where I spend eight hours a day? Is this my life? Again…WTF?
  • (Feel free to add to this list in the comments because y’all know you’ve said the same things! And if you haven’t, I’d like to hear that too!)

We’ve all been there. I know I have. I have said variations of those sentences myself. Negative, defensive, angry thoughts about your job aren’t going to help. Even if you get a new job, you’ll have the same problems because you’ll bring the same thinking to the new job.

Change the way you think about the job you have now. Check your thoughts about it. What do you say when you complain to your partner or friends about your job? Awareness is the first step to change. No matter how crappy your job is, and it very well could be, you must make the internal change first.

Second step coming up tomorrow. Let me know what you’ve been saying about your current job. Anonymous replies are fine. I’m not trying to get anyone in trouble! (((hugs)))

Holistic Saturdays: Mixed Berry Smoothie. (V, GF)

Mixed Berry Smoothie

  • 1.5 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 2-3 clementines, peeled
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • water
  • any leafy green (optional)

Blend until smooth.

Note:

You can always use fresh berries. Frozen berries are much cheaper, which is why I always use them in my smoothies.

Smoothies are a great place to add any leafy green. Spinach works well here because it’s a sweet green that doesn’t interfere with the taste. I didn’t add it here because frankly the original recipe makes for a prettier picture. 😊

It’s yummy. Let me know what you think.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 46.

When major changes in your life occur, such as birth of children, marriage, divorce, or death of someone you love, it is okay to mourn the loss of your old life. It is important to grieve for what was.

When you are ready, celebrate your new life. Feel gratitude for all the blessings received as you create a new life for yourself.

Mantra: I am grateful for my new life today.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 43.

(An oldie but goodie…)

Write a gratitude list at any time of the day.

  • When you are stressed.
  • When you are worried.
  • When you are happy.
  • When chaos is swirling around you.
  • When you are about to go to sleep.
  • When you are at work.
  • When you are confused.
  • When you are feeling fine.
  • When nothing is working for you.
  • When everything is working for you.

Writing a gratitude list redirects your thinking so you focus on all the goodness in your life. Create a gratitude journal dedicated to all that you are grateful for.
