Friday, April 02, 2010 - Weekend Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!


Double the Blessings!

This weekend I get to celebrate both my birthday and Easter Sunday on the same day! Oddly enough I was born on a Palm Sunday, and now this year Easter Sunday falls on my birthday! They say our birthday is a much better time to set goals, it's considered to be our "personal new year". I plan to do some reflection and revisions to get my "personal new year" off to the best start possible!

I've already begun some outward changes in anticipation of my birthday, starting with a much needed  hair cut. I've also tossed out old makeup and switched out to a more Spring Friendly color Palette. While I still have some Spring  Cleaning to go after I type my last sentence, I am off for the weekend! No new posts until Monday!  And certainly no manual labor!

I plan to take all my own advice you see, being in the moment, slowing down, enjoying the company of friends and family and getting in some much needed 'me' time!

I hope you will do the same!

What are your Easter Dinner Plans? What are your favorite Easter Traditions and memories? (I loved decorating Easter Eggs!)

I have received some lovely birthday goodies early (Thank You, you know who you are!), and you will soon have the chance to win many of the same items, so I won't list them all now!

Thank You Baskin Robbins for the SUPER delicious birthday 'Raspberry Fudge Truffle Ice Cream Cake' (and free birthday scoop - remember to sign up for the newsletter for a free birthday scoop. Readers please note the cake was not from the newsletter) - I HIGHLY recommend this new flavor!  Check it out HERE

And if someone sees the Easter Bunny, tell him I get TWO baskets this year since my birthday falls on Easter Sunday!

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 will spend more time with loved ones this weekend and way less time on work related projects!' (I mean it everyone, absolutely NO work this weekend!)

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.

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!
