Tuesday, March 02, 2010 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Set the Day to Music

I've spent most of the day singing along to music, a playlist with all my favorites has been the soundtrack to most of my day today.

I'm not saying it made my work any easier, but I certainly enjoyed doing it more. But even more fun was having others sing along with me! Most experiences are just that much better and more fun when shared. Doesn't it seem to go by faster when you are talking to someone in the line at the Bank or the Post Office?

Today I encourage you to reach out. Make a connection, and I don't mean a virtual one. Talk to someone. I can guarantee it will make your day 'lighter', better somehow; and theirs as well.

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 'I embrace new connections!'

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.

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a NING group with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

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)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!

  1. Making a new connection is a great idea. I actually did that at the gym yesterday. I typically put my earbuds in and ignore everyone around me. However, yesterday for some reason decided to go against the grain, and I made a connection when I spoke with a woman that I actually had a lot in common with.

    I wonder how many great people I've missed out on by doing that?

  2. @Candice - I tend to do the same thing when running errands or while on the train,bus, plane etc, put in earbuds and get lost in the music. But I realize my most memorable journeys all had a *real connection* to them! Sometimes I need to remember to heed this reminder myself!

  3. Great post! And super true words. Thank you for sharing them.

  4. I love what you said. I always like to make connections when I am out and I also always visualize.

  5. I am court ordered to a counseling group and some times I miss because of various reasons, but I do notice that on the days I attend that no matter what has happened that day, whenever I walk into that room and unburden myself that I instantly feel better and the rest of my evening is much better. I noticed all of this because sometimes I dont want to go and then I will make myself but again, once I am there I will notice a big change in my attitude and it is great.

  6. Hi =)
