Yesterday, I wrote a post (Day 197) about the Law of Attraction and the “crisis” of illegal immigrants, specifically unaccompanied minors, crossing the border into the US by the thousands. I asked that the focus be put on the fact that one: something needs to be done in their country so that they don’t need to flee in terror and two: they’re kids and they need love. Today, I read a letter by Mayor Stephanie Minor of Syracuse, NY. She has requested that President Obama makes Syracuse a place of refuge for these children AND points out that something needs to be done mitigate the issue of why they felt compelled to flee their countries. (Read the letter here.) That focusing surely worked well. Thank you.
And so I wondered, how are things going from my previous posts. I called my dad and asked him to pick 5 random numbers from 1 — 197 and then I went and reread those posts to see how the Law of Attraction was working.
Day 17: Today I was going to write something about the flow of a river. I also got a call from my doctor’s office. They had all come in fragrance free today — just in case I decided to keep the appointment I had cancelled. The nurse practitioner was concerned I wasn’t coming in the office due to a chance of exposure with my MCS. I should note that prior to becoming disabled with MCS, I had tested positive for cancer. I was retested every 3 months with each test improving. It was finally decided that my body was in fight mode from all the chemical reactions and to come back in a year.
When I re-read Day 17 — it was about the flow of a river and “what would I do if I didn’t have to worry about money?” My answer was the same as I gave my NP only about health instead of money. I’ve chosen at my age and with a life-threatening condition to live each day happy. I decided I don’t want to know if I have cancer. This isn’t a denial thing. This isn’t a religious thing. This isn’t anything I am recommending for anyone else. This is the answer to the question that so often gets asked, “What would you do if you had 6 months to live?” I would do what I am doing: walk, be with friends, write, do my photography, meditate, blog, BE HAPPY….
Day 21: This post was about worrying if I’m writing or staying in relationships out of habit. And there was picture of a turkey vulture soaring. Just prior to coming in I was taking pictures of a turkey vulture soaring in my field. And obviously the whole point of starting this post today is to see if I made any changes from where I’ve started — 197 days ago. I believe I have.
Day 55: I wrote about the Ukraine crisis with Russia. Moments before I wrote this I went to get the link for the mayor’s letter and it was reported that a plane had been shot down on the Russian-Ukraine border. I will definitely shift my focus on sending love to those families.
Day 72: “Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be,” by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. This was the quote from Day 72. I am presently reading a Wayne Dyer book I was given as a gift and I received a heads up from a friend that a new blog is being started dedicated to peace. I had read Sarah’s comment that posts are being accepted just before I started this post. Here is the link to the new blog if you’d like to submit something. Artists for Peace.
Day 93: This post was about making peace with my MCS. A few hours ago, I went to lunch with my parents over at the lake. My mom pointed out how she had heard that there were hospitals that specialize with dealing my issue and why don’t I move there? I said, I was aware and thank you for your concern but I had made peace with my life. And frankly, right now I am the only person I know who is happy and relatively free of stress.
Personally, I think my dad did well picking out blog posts to match my focus today. And I think I am doing pretty well in my pursuit of love.
What have you focused on today? Have you ever gone back through a journal or your blog to see if things you thought about a lot have happened?
