Tuesday, January 05, 2010 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Love What You Do, Do What You Love!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - New Year/New You continues today. But first some more good news!  Ascending Butterfly was featured in Tiki Tiki's 'New For the Blogroll: Latinas You Should Meet in 2010' - it is such an honor being featured among such creative blogs! And it is also an honor to be considered a Latina to watch in 2010! Congratulations to all the blogs nominated. Please take a moment to read the entire article HERE

Yesterday's 'Bloggy Angel Award' and the news of being featured as a 'Latina Blogger to watch in 2010' has made me all the more connected to the power of 'doing what I love, and loving what I do'. I LOVE to write. I always have. Poems, stories, even my essays while in school. The pen (or now the keyboard) is my paintbrush. I can spend hours writing and get completely absorbed in it. What do you connect with so fully, so deeply, that you don't even notice the passing of time? What do you LOVE? And are you being paid to do what you truly LOVE? If not, why not? You should be!

I also love to travel, but still haven't figured out how to get paid to do it! (Do you think Samantha Brown or Anthony Bourdain are ready to retire??? LOL)

We feel 'robbed' and depleted on a daily basis when we do work we don't enjoy. When our efforts are 'under-appreciated' or appear to go entirely un-noticed, minutes can feel like an eternity. We are not destined to feel this way! Enjoy the journey! Vow to do what you love this year! Do the research and take the steps necessary to be fully aligned to a 'career' and not just a 'job'. You absolutely owe it to yourself to do what you love and love what you do!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'Today I will do what I Love and Love what I do'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)
