Quote of the day
“The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want.” – T. Harv Eker
I have the wisdom to know the deepest desires of my heart.
I am grateful for:
My husband doing the nursery run today, which allowed me to work for 8 hours straight.
What did I discover new about myself?
Remember when I said that my powers are coming back?
Yeah, so if ever I wanted confirmation of that fact, today was the day.
I’ve been working as a temp for a superstore close by and my contract was due to end on the 23rd.
That was always the deadline in my mind.
Well, a few weeks back, I was told that there was a huge possibility that my contract could be extended.
My immediate reaction?
Oh no, I hope not!
Not because of anything inherently bad that’s happened in the store. I mean, the manager was great to work with, the colleagues were too. Conditions were pretty good. And I actually enjoyed the role.
So, what’s the problem?
The main problem is that I only applied for a temp position because I didn’t have the time for a full-time one.
I’m a wife, a mother and a full-time writer. I honestly don’t even know how I have time to sleep whilst trying to (mostly) successfully juggle all three roles.
Add in this job – if it were permanent – and I’d probably collapse in the middle of the shop from sheer exhaustion.
So, what’s this got to do with my powers of manifestation?
Simple, I told my husband yesterday that I don’t want to get an extension because even if I did get offered one, I’d have had to decline it.
Today, I received a letter confirming the end of my contract. I didn’t get an extension and I was relieved.
Now, you might think this is pretty fab – this ability to create so quickly.
But there’s one major drawback – what if I change my mind about something?
This is why I need to be extremely careful with what I think and what I choose.
I dare not risk anything bad happening due to a moment’s carelessness.
How did I make others feel?
Of course, most of my interactions were online so I can’t be too sure.
But I’m almost 100% that I cheered people up and even inspired some of them. 🙂
What was the best thing that happened to me today?
I found out today that one of my posts were ranking in Google – not just on the first page but it’s actually occupying the top spot for a good few keywords.
For other keywords, it was on the 4th – not as good as top 1 obviously but good enough.
I only wrote that post a few months ago (3 months tops) and I can’t believe that it’s already ranking.
The possibilities astound me and I’m super psyched! 🙂
What or who made today unforgettable?
That moment when I looked at Google Analytics and I realised that a few of my posts were ranking – one hitting the top spot rather unexpectedly.
3 amazing things that happened today
1. I found out that my post is ranking on Google after only a few months.
2. I was able to work for 8 hours straight in the morning – it would’ve been 9 PM if my alarm had worked. But 8 hours is pretty good.
3. I got confirmation that my powers are back.
How much stress did I experience?
Not much. 🙂
Did I do something that was out my comfort zone?
I shared my progress with a few people on Blogging Babes Collective and, even though they were peanuts compared to far more established bloggers, they were genuinely happy for me.
Really love the blogging community!
How could I have made today better?
I could’ve set my alarm properly so that I could’ve woken up at 4 AM rather than 5 AM.
Also, be more careful with what I wish for so that I don’t inadvertently sabotage myself.
What can I do better tomorrow?
Set my alarm properly. ha ha
What did I learn today?
Again, I learned that I need to be extremely careful with my thoughts.
They must be positive and steeped in the deepest desires of my heart to avoid creating hurdles instead of paths.
Also, on a more practical level, I learned how to remove backgrounds from images which will definitely come in handy for when I’m making pins.
All in all, I’d consider today a success career wise.
