About Me:
I’m 46 years old and I’ve been married for 11 years to a wonderful man. He is my rock and my support. We don’t have any children, but have three extraordinary cats, each with distinct personalities.

I’m an artist. I struggle with allowing the creativity inside of me to surface. I work in mixed-media. Mostly, I make collages with uplifting phrases or words on them. During my first Challenge, I had a Featured Artist Show at the Redlands Art Association in Redlands, CA. I feel like the Challenge was instrumental in helping me have a great show. Currently, I am taking some mixed-media classes on another Ning network. Not only am I learning interesting techniques, but I feel as though I’m finally coming into my own as an artist.

In some ways, it seems that I’m just becoming familiar with the LOA stuff, and in other ways, it seems I’ve been dabbling in it all my life. I’ve had a couple of pretty powerful – but messy! – demonstrations. I was famous for manifesting money through car wrecks in my younger days. I’d like to learn to be a bit more deliberate with my manifestations. One reason why LOA still seems new to me sometimes is that I don’t consistently apply what I know. I get careless with my vibration, even though I know better. I’m hoping during this Season to be more deliberate about staying in or near the Vortex. (I’m a big fan of the Abraham Hicks material.)

I don’t work because of a disability. In theory, I know that I could manifest healing, but to be honest, I'm just not there yet. So instead, I'm trying to manifest SSDI payments. I have some smaller intentions to help me get used to this manifesting/LOA thing – things I can wrap my mind around, things I can believe in. Then, I can work on healing. The SSDI process seems to be stuck.

I don’t just want to manifest things. I want to create a life that is (to use Lilou’s word) JUICY. I want to be excited about every day. I want to live beautifully, to live out loud. There’s a snippet from an Indigo Girls song … poetry in motion … that’s what I want my life to be. I want life to be meaningful and purposeful, full of rich and intimate relationships. Most of all, I want it to be something that, when I come to the end of it, I won’t regret the time I gave up for it.

I’m really excited about my Season Three of the 100 Day Reality Challenge. I’ve been feeling pretty good most of the time lately, but know that I can feel better and better. I planned my first season to support my Featured Artist Show; my second season had no specific purpose, and I kind of floundered; this third season will support some health issues and work toward two art festivals I’m hoping to participate in this fall. I’m excited about the prospect of working on my Challenge with so many others. I think the combined energy of all of us working at the same time will be awesome!

Thanks so much to Sandy, Laura, and Lilou for setting up this site. And thanks to all my new friends for their support and encouragement so far. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone better as we go through this journey together.
Season 3
Starting Date:
June 27, 2010
Intentions & Goals:
My main intention during my Season Three of the 100 Day Reality Challenge is simply to feel better each day and to get into the Vortex AND STAY THERE! Some "smaller" intentions that will help me with my main intention are:

~ To be more fit. I go to the gym for at least 15 minutes, three times a week. Regular exercise not only helps me be fit and healthy, but also helps me feel better about myself and helps me to be more present in my day.

~ To manifest abundance. Money and other forms of abundance flow to me easily. My disability claim is approved in a timely fashion.

~ To build strong relationships. I make new friends and rekindle old friendships. Developing new relationships comes easily to me. My husband and I continue to fall more deeply in love each day. We share many passionate and intimate experiences.

~ To live in an attitude of appreciation. I keep a daily Appreciation Journal to remind me of what I already have and to help me focus on positive aspects.

~ To live more in the present moment and to be more focused in my day. I 30 minutes of writing, four times a week, to help me stay centered and grounded in my day.

~ To work on my art on a regular basis. I work on my art for at least an hour, four times a week. Regular art time not only helps me feel better about my artistic abilities and gets me ready for the fall art festival; it soothes me, helping me to feel more calm and present in my own life.

~ To develop a more healthy relationship with food. I re-read and work through the book “If I’m So Smart, Why Can’t I Lose Weight?” I strive to eat only as much food as my body needs for fuel, facing my feelings and insecurities instead of eating them to sleep.

~ To keep a cleaner and more organized house. I make a WIT-list each day and complete the three tasks on it. Regular house maintenance not only helps me keep my home a more pleasant place to be, but also helps me feel better about myself and helps me be more present in my day.

~ To rekindle my meditation practice. I meditate for 15 minutes each morning. In addition to helping me stay calm and centered, a practice of meditation helps me keep commitments to myself.

Season Three, Day 22 (Great Week-end!)

Posted on July 18, 2010 at 8:19pm 1 Comment

Hello, delightful Co-Creators!

I just wanted to make a quick post to let you know that my life is being very good to me right now. I went out of town for the week-end and had a wonderful time. I stayed with my in-laws; it's always good to see them. I drove to San Diego on Saturday and met an internet friend of mine. We -- along with one of her other friends -- had the best time. It was so good to be together after months of chatting and emailing online. She took me all…

Season Three, Day 17 (Better and Better)

Posted on July 13, 2010 at 7:04pm 1 Comment

Hello, co-creators!

I had originally hoped to post three times a week to the challenge blog, but lately, I haven't been managing to do that. I also haven't been filling out my challenge worksheet each day, and not surprisingly, I'm not convinced that I'm getting everything done that I hope to do each day. However, I've been busy living my life -- and that felt good! A couple of projects seem to be coming together rather well, and I'm feeling pretty good,…

Season Three -- Day 11 (Working My Way Toward Feeling Good!)

Posted on July 8, 2010 at 12:43am 0 Comments

Hello, beautiful co-creators!

Each day is getting a little better for me. I'm feeling more energetic and I'm slowly getting more done each day. I'm looking forward to the day when I find myself in the Vortex, and all my actions feel like inspired actions. I've been there before, but didn't mind my attitudes, so I've slipped out. I am feeling more confident and more joyful by the day.

Here's to hoping you are making as much progress as I feel like…

Season Three -- Day 10 (Feeling Good!)

Posted on July 6, 2010 at 10:53pm 0 Comments

I am still struggling to get done the things I want to each day, but I am getting more done and I am feeling GREAT. I spent yesterday with friends and family; I had a really good time even though I was in a great deal of back pain. Everyone else played games and I sat with them and watched. At one point, I looked over at my husband laughing and obviously having fun with our friends and I fell in love with him all over again. i was so appreciative of his place in my life and the joy he brings… Continue

Season Three, Day Six (Feeling Better!)

Posted on July 3, 2010 at 1:12am 9 Comments

Just wanted to let you know that I'm feeling better about the Challenge, and life in general. I'm participating in a free e-course conducted by Andrea Schroeder on creativity and it's really energizing me. Today, I sat in my doctor's waiting room and read over the Week One material and felt a palpable energizing in my soul. I'm… Continue

I have to say what I've seen of your art looks amazing! And for me that's saying something. I see lots of art day in a day out in many forms (my current job is working at an art & crafts store) So I get to see all the new budding artist that come in for supplies. but yours is truly creative and colorful! and thanks for showing off your worksheet. I think I'll be stealing your idea but I'm not quite sure what I'll be putting on mine yet.
Hope your day is full of creativity and wonder!

PS: How is the art coming? I haven't created anything for over a year with the exception of a wedding gift that I did out of their invitation. Dry spell big time...

Cindy! Believe it or not I just signed in yesterday for the first time in a while to check out the new season starting. I didn't see the link though but yes I am considering doing it. Wanna buddy up? Before I start I need to work on clarification~~ always a sticking point for me! Perhaps this time I'll work on what I want to FEEL instead of what I want to manifest.
Are you doing this for sure?

Hey there Cindy!
My challenge is going well..thanks for asking :o) I'm keeping focused on it and waiting for the little signs to show up. I don't have anything majorly challeging on there. I am trying to remember to blog at least every day and bring my thoughts to it as often as I can and also to look through my art journal/manifesting book. I think I'll add more to that today!

Hey Cindy! How is your challenge going?

Hi, my friend! Thanks for your kind words about my intentions. I think we both have some great intentions/goals. I look forward to taking this "journey" with you.

Cindyyyyy!! I'm so glad you wrote and that your back with your beautiful self! I have missed your energy. I decided to stop where I was in my journey and start on Jan 15 also. It was only a matter of regrouping for a week or so till the fifteenth so it all worked out. I figured with so many people focused on that date the energy would be so much stronger. I love this place! How is your art coming??
