The Miracle Challenge, day #9

Remember yesterday when I was talking about giving ourselves validation so that we weren’t looking for it outside ourselves?  Yep, that was smart.  Really good advice.

If only I had taken it myself.

Last night I put up a message announcing the Miracle Journal entry and phrased it in what I thought was a kind of cute question.  Unfortunately I didn’t realize until after the fact that it was actually a request for people to validate me.

And you know what happens when I ask people to validate me?  I get advice instead.  And that has always been a trigger for me.

Once again I am reminded that self-validation is one of my lessons in this life.  And simply being willing to show up for The Miracle Challenge is an act of self-validation…for all of us.

I hope that you’re finding the journey to be useful.  I know that I am loving watching each of you shift.

Happy Friday!  Let’s get our miracles on!

    This morning during my meditation I did some self mirroring with self love…lol I kinda giggled again when i read that today’s post was self validation. I love myself unconditionally….when I am going through my day so far with this thought…WOW!amazing how it is easier to bring love about and view others this way. My morning with my little one has been fabulous!

    My miracle for today is taking time to remember to show myself love by realizing and appreciating the fact that I am doing the best I can. And that is more than enough. Once I reaffirm that, I can actually enjoy a day no matter how hectic or what financial issues may come up. It’s a great day!

    A couple of lovely little money miracles today –

    When I went to the store someone had left a “buy one get one free” coupon on exactly the product I was preparing to buy. Thank you, Coupon Fairy! 🙂

    When I went to do laundry a little while ago, I found that I’d already stockpiled the quarters I needed for the next few trips to the laundry room.
