It’s the first week of the new school year and I feel good. I am blessed with a loving family, a rewarding life and a peaceful outlook.
Funny how the things we believe come true, eh? Do I have all the money I want? Not yet. Do I have the job I want? Not yet…but I’m creating it. Yep. I’m creating money and a career and happiness and joy and everything I want in life with Faith. Faith in myself and The Infinite Creator. Between the two of us, this crab is in it to win it.
I woke up this morning and took my youngest to school, came home and prayed, sat silent for a while and watched Doreen Virtue’s 2015 Oracle Card Reading. I just love her. She is so awesome. Her reading was just what the doctor ordered. Just as I was about to meditate myself to sleep, my son’s school called and needed me to substitute one of their kindergarten classes. Yes! I work today…and kindergarten is so cute. BUt the love doesn’t stop there, one of the Pre-K teachers messaged me that she put me in for her class tomorrow. Even bigger Yay! Mo’ Money! Mo’ Money! Mo’ Money!
Auspicious day indeed.
On another note, I am looking at myself less critically now. This Cancer’s only human…and crab. Perfection is not a goal. It’s an illusion. To quote the poet Sweet Brown, ” Ain’t nobody got time for that!” My body is mine and it’s awesome. I can jump. I can sit. I cook. I sing. I dance, albeit badly, but I do it with a happy heart and it feels good.
So today is a wonderful day. I may even work out. In fact, I have to…promised myself.
I hope this day is amazing for everyone who reads this…and it can be, if you let it. Just look at me!

Everyday, in every way, I get better and better and better.
…And so it is.
