Green Woman - I LOVE RAW!!!

I had planned to write an article detailing a small "manifestation experiment" that resulted in tremendous success, but what I've noticed is that with each passing DAY, I attract more and more things, people, experiences, and abundance into my Life... MY LIFE IS A SUCCESSFUL MANIFESTATION EXPERIMENT... and it just keeps getting more amazing.
A few months ago I was depressed, hurting physically and spiritually, being SUED, being sent to collections for a Fraudulent "cell phone company" charge, being regularly dragged to the Emergency Room for serious (but perceived) health issues (greatly caused by stress) by my loving Partner, wallowing in debt with no end in sight, panicking about paying bills, on the verge of losing my Job (which I did eventually lose), etc., etc.
When I initially went 100% Raw/Living Vegan for the last time on October 10, 2009.. it was the starting point of big changes in my life... Good things began to transpire, and I gradually began to see more and more how much I really WAS capable of changing and creating for myself.
The final week of December, I reviewed my Life and said "Enough is ENOUGH!!!" And I changed my attitude. Physically, spiritually, emotionally, I took myself in hand and TOLD MYSELF that I was now in command, and I had a NEW plan for my (then) miserable life: 2010 was MY YEAR!! No more depression, stressing over finances, doctors or anger about my "situation" and mental helplessness.
I woke up in January and determined each day to fill my Life with Gratitude for each and every part of what filled my existence.
My Life is changed. I am Changed. I am Healing, I am Healed. I am FULL of Hope. I can see not just ONE light at the end of a tunnel, but NO MORE TUNNEL and now light all around!
The tunnel was self-imposed all those years. The self-hatred and anger and guilt and bitterness stemming from what some would consider an unfortunate childhood and early 20's was now turned inside out, shaken, and cast off. In its place, bliss and abundance, hope and healing filled the space left behind, and my Life today is astoundingly, CONSISTENTLY rich, full, and blessed.
I now CHOOSE "unemployment" because the world is ripe with opportunities that don't place me in a cubicle, and I'm finding them!
I now CHOOSE a fresh attitude each morning, regardless whether I "slept wrong" or not, because each day is a fresh opportunity not to be wasted.
I now CHOOSE to do Yoga every evening, regardless the time when I get home, because it rejuvenates me physically.
I now CHOOSE to eat living, whole, raw foods every morning, evening, noon and night because it nourishes every fiber of my being, from my cells to my Soul.
I now CHOOSE my LIFE: what I think is what I am, and my thoughts are for the GOOD in everything that comes my Way.
I don't have a good attitude BECAUSE my life is great: my Life is GREAT because I have a good attitude!!"
A few things to share:
The 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge rawked and rolled... so much so that I purchased a domain name to host a separate site for it from now on, rather than using Facebook (which can get confusing!).
My own personal 30-Day YOGA Challenge was UH-MAZING!!! In fact, I'm getting ready to do my Yoga for tonight... I can't stop. It's a pleasant, healthy new habit that I plan to continue for as long as I am in this beautiful, health-filled Body!
I'm now a contributing, paid free-lance writer for a high-circulation local publication, the Green Times. This was a development that took place earlier this year and still has me reeling with excitement and sheer terror at the responsibility I have now incurred, along with the ABUNDANCE that follows. ;) I am currently working on 3 assignments, possibly 4, for the next two issues. My dream of earning an income from free-lance writing is coming true, one submission at a time.
My health blossoms at every turn.
My relationships with family, friends, and my sweet Lover grow richer with each passing day. I am learning, growing, expanding opportunities, and Love is really an adventure.
There's simply too much to put in one little blog post. Heavens!
LIVE IS GOOD!!
