Who wants to join me in a piece of Magic?
The Magic is starting next Monday in our house. No, I'm not talking white rabbits, card tricks or Dynamo. I'm talking about the book called The Magic. I guess it's best described as a self-help book, part of The Secret series of books. It's a doing book as over 28 days the reader has different practices to do each day with the intention of opening their eyes to the magic out there. In addition to different exercises each day, I have to write down 10 things for which I'm grateful, 10 different things each day. Just doing that exercise alone really makes you think about your life and everything good about it. The first time I did it, I was surprised at how much there was in my life to be grateful about, from big things like having a roof over my head to little things like a comfy pillow on which to rest my head at night. You don't have just have to be grateful for things in the present, you can also look back throughout your life. There were days I struggled and its days like these where you really have to be creative and look around you and your life.
Doing The Magic is all part of my New Year shift to being more positive and by doing so I hopefully bring more positive energies to the house. It's all part of the Law of Attraction which I subscribe to (though admittedly haven't always followed in the past). There is a big global movement that believes being more grateful brings more abundance.
When I first did The Magic, it was two years ago and I don't think we'd even started home study. That month several really good things happened to me including being nominated for a national business award. Anyway, at the risk of sounding like Pollyanna (google if you don't know what I mean), give it a try for yourself. That's why I've talked about The Magic today, ahead of next week when I start, to give you time to get the book for yourself over the weekend and start with me next Monday. Oh, and you'll need a notebook and pen.
I'm also taking part in #100HappyDays, the idea being you take a picture each day for 100 days about something that's made you happy and brought a smile to your face. You can share them on social media or just do it for yourself, whatever you want. My first one was jam tart making and yesterday was a bar of chocolate - I suspect food will feature a lot in our photos. Some will have Missy in and those ones I obviously won't put on Twitter but do keep an eye out for my other photos (@AdoptingSezz) and let me know if you are also taking part.
In other news, we have a Final Hearing date in February. Hurrah!
