Mocha Angels 365. Day 52.

Day Five of work.

If you want to be deeply fulfilled by all that you do, know you worth. If you like your job, yet feel that you are not getting paid enough, then bless your current salary with love. Gratitude amplifies everything.

As Louise Hay says, ” Affirm that you are now opening your consciousness to a greater prosperity and that part of that prosperity is an increased salary. You deserve a raise because you are a great asset to the company.”

Part six up next.

Day Four of work.

If you want to be deeply fulfilled by all that you do, then be the best employee at your job. Period. You may hate your boss or be frustrated by the tasks or feel disdain for your co-workers. That doesn’t stop you from doing the best you can.

You always want to do your best you can so the Universe knows to lift you out of that place and take you to an even better place to work.

Up next, the fifth step.

Day Three of work.

If you want to be deeply fulfilled by all that you do, begin affirming, “I always work for the most wonderful bosses.” “My boss always treats me with respect and courtesy.” “My boss is generous and easy to work for.” This will become true for all the places that you work. If you’re the boss, you’ll become the person that your employees love.

If you don’t like your boss, bless him or her with love. That is hard to do. Lord knows, I know. Keep doing it anyway. Keep affirming, “I always work for the most wonderful bosses.” Press repeat. You can’t say this enough.

Up next, the fourth step.

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.

“Our personal attempts to live humanely in this world are never wasted. Choosing to cultivate love rather than anger just might be what it takes to save the planet from extinction.”

– Pema Chodron, The Places That Scare You

I’m reading this book right now, and it is a stellar work. Chodron, an American Buddhist nun, most known for her bestseller When Things Fall Apart, gives clear instruction on how to open the heart (and keep it open) especially when we don’t want to do so. A review is coming soon. If you’ve read the book, or any of her books, let me know what you think.

“……my therapist taught me, “Everything in moderation, except joy.” As I looked back over my life, I began to understand that my joy, indeed my very existence, depends on me inhaling goodness unapologetically.” – “Sharing ‘Good Vibes’ Only Can Save Your Life” by Danielle Young (link to full article below.)

I read that quote in the December 2019 issue of Essence magazine. I was reading the magazine at Firestone Auto Care while waiting for my car to be repaired after an unexpected breakdown. The column struck me so much that I took a picture of the above paragraph.

So how to inhale more goodness, more joy when the “dailyness” of life is wearing you down? Reading Mocha Angels 365 is always good! That Ms. Mocha Angel is on point! (HA HA!)

Doing things that bring you joy is key.

Enter ellieejay from the Pointless Overthinking blog. She wrote a post called “How to Love the Repetition of Life.” (link to full post below) Simple pleasures, with minimum effort and minimum cost, are the key the enjoying the repetition of life, says ellieejay. I’m down like four flat tires with her line of thinking.

The simplest of all my pleasures is singing. I sing all.the.time. Everywhere. Anywhere. Ask my kids. I dance too. I can’t dance worth snot, but I don’t care. Song and dance bring me joy. I can’t do either one of them too much.

How do you inhale goodness? What are your simple pleasures?

“Lean not on your own understanding” means not to only trust what you perceive with your five senses. There is more to this planet than what you see, hear, feel, taste, and smell. Your understanding of life is increased by the gift from God: intuition.

This sixth sense is your Higher Power guiding you in the right direction. Intuition is always your first thought about a situation. The thought is usually quick and fleeting. Sometimes intuition is felt in your body, a la “I had a gut feeling about……”

Listening to your intuition is a skill to be cultivated in order for you to trust it. That’s why meditation or even quiet time with no media distractions is helpful. They both teach you to listen to your own inner wisdom.

Mantra: I trust my intuition today.
