The 100 Day Reality Challenge

Hey Blog Buddies!
(okay, I stole that from Ross the Intern, sorry bout that)

I've been AWOL for a few weeks, I can't believe the time flies so fast. WOW.
My days have been full and my heart is, too. I am going through the transition of having my husband return to work while keeping my 5-year old busy and my own self fulfilled. Kinda crazy round here! We also had spring break to keep us busy, then my husband's job transition. The routine starts today, however, so I wanted to start off by doing a blog and get back into my flow.

I am so happy to say that TWO intentions have manifested, ones that I'd written down but not discussed with anyone. First, my son has had a health issue for a couple of years that we thought he'd grow out of. Well, it wasn't changing, so I set the intention that he would be better before he starts Kindergarten in the fall. Setting the intention helped me to get present to what might be affecting him, his diet for one. We made a few major changes to our lifestyle, and we let him feel involved with the process. AND he is already TONS better. He has more energy as a result (wait, is that a good thing?!) and I feel very proud as a Mom. :-)

The other manifestation has to do with our finanaces. My intention was that my husband would get a job that would suit him perfectly while giving us the income that we need (and more). A few weeks ago he took a job that wasn't really "him" in order to pay the bills. Another positition came along right away that was exactly what he had wanted, though he had all but given up on this type of job. And the pay was a bit better. He started that new job today and he seems so happy. He worked hard to get this job, so he gets all of the credit for it, but it sure feels good to see the intention manifest all the same!

Intuition has been a big theme for me lately, I am reading a great book called "Awakening Intuition" by Mona Lisa Schulz, and I am learning to listen to my inner-self just a wee bit more. For one, I realize that I feel much better when I listen to my body's inner voice. Becoming more present lately has made me realize this. If I pause before I choose my food or drink, ask my body what it really needs, I get better results. For instance, I LOVE to have a cup of tea in the morning, but I am sensitive to caffeine and the acids that are in tea and coffee. I have had to cut most of this out, and my stomach has been much calmer. Now if I could just give up sugar...

I AM learning who I am. I have been on this quest for awhile now and lately I've become very inspired by Eckhart Tolle's book "A New Earth." I read "The Power of Now" first and that really opened my eyes to how I saw my life. I had some major "Ah-ha Moments" when I read it. One of those moments was that I am not my past, nor my future. I am the person who is living in the Now. I can only affect the present, and can only know that I am okay right now. I used to get very frustrated about my future, and that I didn't know what I'd do with myself once my son started school. I have desired a career, but the path hasn't been obvious. So I kept feeling that I wouldn't be somebody until I had something to do in the wider world. Once I realized that living in the present moment is what matters I was set free!!! The future is now, my life's work is whatever I am doing in this moment, and feeling at peace with that is life-changing. I am still planning my career path(s), but in a way that is relaxed and full of faith, not frantic. And one added bonus: this has given me the ability to be much more present with my son, rather than wishing he was already in school so I could "get on with my life."

And lastly, Icky Illnesses keep coming up: I keep catching colds, having hay fever, and some female issues are thrown in the mix, too. I am only saying this to explain where I have been lately. I've been a little out of the loop of my 100 Day Challenge group so I do apologize if anyone thinks I've been neglectful. I have learned some things while lying around trying not to feel sorry for myself. I may share that stuff in my next blog... I intend that it will be sooner, not later.

Blessings to you all!
Clarissa xxxx

So happy to check your blog today and see that you had stopped by and made a post! It sounds like life is quite exciting for you and your family.

Intuition is a big theme for me too. I will have to check out the book you mentioned. Best wishes,

So glad to hear that your son is doing better. I hope you are feeling better and better every day.

And that is great news about your husband getting a job that he is happy with, it can only make things happier at home if he's not miserable at work.

Hello my dear, I rarely get to scan the blogs here on Ning, I am so happy that I did :) I really loved The Moses Code, it is all about the I AM. You will probably like it a ton, hay house has it. I have been thinking lately as well about listening to my body. I really think it makes a huge difference and helps us so much to be in tune with ourselves.

Look at ALL that you have accomplished since starting these challenges. It is amazing and just by doing it one moment at a time. You are awesome!
Much love and blessings! - LisaChristeen
