“Even Though” Magic 1/6/2012

Hello? Is anybody out there? Magical Mondays haven’t been getting very many comments lately…and I’m thinking perhaps it’s because Mondays can be very UN-magical.  You think? I admit I’m not feeling very magical this morning, but thanks to Spicy Fairy’s post today on My Everyday Magic I was able to find some things to be grateful for “even though” I’m not really feelin’ it. “Even though” magic helps us to embrace our feelings of yuckiness and find the magic anyway…and perhaps put a little “good news” spin on it like I did today. From my comment today on My Everyday Magic, here is my “even though” gratitude list:

* Even though the Patriots lost the Superbowl AGAIN, perhaps it’s GOOD NEWS ~ maybe some of the players will take this loss to heart and become seekers. Maybe they’ll stumble upon the concept of Law of Attraction, share it with their team-mates, and they’ll bring their playing up a spiritual notch and become a SUPER-TEAM! It could happen. ;)

* Even though we just got our largest oil bill EVER ($800!), perhaps that’s GOOD NEWS, because it means we’ll make the MOST money we ever have this month to cover it! That could DEFINITELY happen! :)

* Even though my hubby is fed-up and grumpy this morning, perhaps that’s GOOD NEWS, as it’ll motivate him to find different ways of being in his business and in the world. That WILL happen ~ my hubby rocks and I believe in him! :)

* Even though I’m fed-up and grumpy this morning, perhaps that’s GOOD NEWS, as it gives me the opportunity to keep choosing JOY over and over and over again ~ and the more I choose JOY, the more it becomes my default. That IS happening!!! And I rock too. ;)

* Even though I didn’t think I’d have any magic this morning….I DO! It happened!

Can you put a positive spin on something that sucks? It’s actually kind of fun ~ and it will raise your vibe…even if only for a moment. 😉

  1. Even though…I haven’t commented in a while, I’m still reading your awesome posts, I’m just busy! I’m sure you’re reaching many people, Kate, whether they respond or not. Your column is exactly what I need every Monday! Thank you!

    Even though…I didn’t get nearly as much done as I wanted to this weekend, I did cross a few things off the list, AND got to spend time with my amazing sister!

  2. I love to see my boys pack up their things and get excited to head to the bus for school. They don’t want the weekend to end, but when Monday comes — they look forward to the day at school. It’s a great thing to see!

  3. Your posts make me smile and stop a moment to check myself. Yeah it sucked getting up this morning after keeping the baby up so he could do his new 9:30pm poop (otherwise he won’t sleep, ugh) and then 4 hours later having to change a wet diaper and nursing him all night long (or so it felt)…but…it’s the start of a fresh new week! New baby adventures, new recipes (I swear I’ll get out of my cooking rut) and time to getting studying for the GRE!

  4. I’m here. It’s magical that I am awake and functioning at work even though my 18-month-old decided to be wide awake and ready to start the day at 2:30 a.m. (She eventually fell back asleep, but it took quite a while.) Luckily the day after the Super Bowl tends to be somewhat quiet.

  5. Even though our youngest won’t seem to spend a MINUTE sleeping in his crib, maybe I’ll be glad someday and look back on all the extra time I spent with him at night 🙂

  6. I love magical mondays – I don’t know why folks aren’t posting!! Where are all you fabulous commentors!

    I am there with you Kate. I am really grumpy and yesterday really sucked. The whole day just was rotten and I kept saying to Dan, “This day is such a crap-fest!”

    My magic:
    *Yesterday is over!
    *The pure joy it brings me to find pictures that remind me of you, the sparkle fairy!
    *Having hot cocoa this morning in my cold office.
    *My baby giving me a little snuggle when I took her out of the crib this morning.

    1. “crap-fest” ~ that made me giggle. 😉 I’m LOVING the pics you send too! I’m gonna use last night’s pic today on the My Everyday Magic fb page! Thank you, Sister!
