Since the beginning of time, women have been suppressed. No doubt about that.
We plan out our strategies. What will we do next to make our lives happier, safer and more peaceful?
The attitude, because I can, is something I’ve said often and live by. Freeing and changing any suppression I may have previously had.
Monday, March 7th, I journaled this memory….
When I built my first house in 1997 and before we moved, my daughter Rachel, had a final party at my very nice 1950’s brick ranch. Within that party a woman from a former church my family used to attend asked this puzzling question. This house is so beautiful. Why would you want to move?
My answer, because I can!
When I calmly and matter-of-factly blurted that out, I felt exuberant. Thinking, of course I can! Why not?
Freeing this no-longer-suppressed-woman to accomplish whatever I desired!
Everyone can, if first we dream! Then move forward building on that dream!
A dream of mine came true just this past Tuesday, March 8th!
I’ve been journaling for 20-years tenaciously every morning, creating 66 journals to date. Within these pages spawned several books. One of which is titled Estate Sales Made Easy, which is based on a 27-year business I own and run.
I attended five seminars for aspiring authors, from the Hay House publishing Alaskan cruise contest, August, 2015. What an fabulous cruise aboard the Holland America, Noordam. Then after submitting all the required information and a video for Estate Sales Made Easy to Hay House, I learned Tuesday, that I’m the one they chose to publish! They added – “We’d like to publish your ebook, and have you do a radio show and live web event. “
Wow! How’s that for thinking and writing, because I can!
Author Florence Scovel Shinn wrote a book titled The Game of Life, December 1925. What an excellent read! Full of her wisdom! Here’s a few excerpts I live by.
“I now dig my ditches deep with faith and understanding and my heart’s desire comes to pass in a surprising way.”
“You attract the things you give a great deal of thought to.”
“I have seen the law work in the most astonishing manner. For example: A student stated that it was necessary for her to have a hundred dollars by the following day. It was a debt of vital importance which had to be met. I “spoke the word,” declaring, Spirit was “never too late,” and that the supply was at hand. That evening she phoned me of the miracle. She said that the thought came to her to go to her safe-deposit box at the bank to examine some papers. She looked over the papers, and at the bottom of the box, was a new one hundred dollar bill. She was astounded, and said she knew she had never put it there, for she had gone through the papers many times. It may have been a materialization, as Jesus Christ materialized the loaves and fishes. Man will reach the stage where his “word is made flesh,” or materialized, instantly. “The fields, ripe with the harvest,” will manifest immediately, as in all of the miracles of Jesus Christ.”
“Getting into the spiritual swing of things is no easy matter for the average person. The adverse thoughts of doubt and fear surge from the subconscious. They are the “army of the aliens” which must be put to flight. This explains why it is so often, “darkest before the dawn.”
“When a student is able to let go of his problem (cast his burden) he will have instantaneous manifestation.”
I spoke and wrote the word of authoring my books with a huge publishing company of which many sloughed it off as if silently saying, yah sure. But that old fire inside kept saying….because I can! And so it is!
Follow your dreams….because YOU can!
