In my house lately, we’ve been (well it’s usually me!) coming up with new ways to feel better about “things”. Nothing in particular, just feeling better about life, and activities, and our health and our positivity. I started following Sarah Prout very closely a few months ago. I knew of Sarah a few years ago, but something must have popped up in my twitter which drew me to her more so. I have always been a big believer in manifestation, but she writes a lot more about vibrations and feelings.
So I read and read and read… then started following her tips and writing things down. My boys roll their eyes a little when I start talking about “vibrations”, but they’ve decided to take it on board and in our house we’ve been working on our vibrations. Sounds a little crazy ha! But seriously, this is not new stuff. You get back what you give out, so I have been making sure we’ve been keeping a high vibration in our house. As soon as someone starts being silly and negative my favourite thing to do it draw a circle in mid air and say “See this? See your vibration? It’s negative and doesn’t match mine, so fix it!” Kids groan, they get a bit angry with me, but then they tend to realise that good things don’t happen unless you ask for them in a positive way.
Kids have so many outside stresses and I just want to raise mine as happy, positive men. Adults have too many stresses! So, in a bid to make sure my family stays happy and positive, we’ve really been working on some stuff…
We’ve been going to bed earlier and getting up earlier to enjoy the day. I don’t allow people to wake up foul! Ha! At least be relatively approachable. You wake up an asshole, you’ll be an asshole all day (sorry, but I live with 4 males!).
We’ve been eating better. I’ve cut out heaps of crap and asking everyone to think about their choices before they put it in their mouth. My boys are old enough to think before they eat rather than me putting it in front of them. I’ve lost 4kg, which has been good because my jeans didn’t fit! 😉
We’ve limited alcohol BIG TIME (for the adults not the kids haha!). No need to use alcohol to manage your stress. My husband and I have been happy to throw it away (well he has a couple a week, but I am happy to stay off it mostly).
I’ve got one kid going to the gym 2-3 times a week. He needed to do it for many reasons – anxiety, stress, plus he enjoys the challenge. Footy season is also here and we’ve been outside as much as we can.
Financially we could all do with a leg up. So I have been teaching my kids about money a bit more, and staying positive about it. Sarah believes money is just energy and I agree with her after reading along. I have been changing the way I think about money and I just feel a bit better about it in general. Join Sarah’s program and private Facebook group and see how people talk about money – I have learnt a lot.
I’ve been talking more about treating people better. Everyone. So this means treating their brothers better, their friends, strangers… Again, a positive vibration is always better. I am quick to knock any “bitching” on its head.
Even though I sound like I am preaching, I promise I’m not! I have my pitfalls, don’t we all? I screech at my kids, I get irritated easily, I have a cloud hanging over me some days… but as a whole I am learning how to better manage those things. Anyway, enough about what I say, seriously just go and read some of Sarah’s stuff. Read the comments, get in her groups and you’ll see what others are saying and how it’s helping them too!
Have a great week ahead. ♥ KC.
