I am feeling so blessed and so grateful for so many things right now I’m almost breathless. I have been putting out so many thoughts and wishes that have come to fruition right before my eyes. From the small and mundane to the sweeping and life-altering. It’s just beautiful and gratifying.

I am currently re-reading one of the best gifts I’ve ever received: The Wisdom of Florence Scovel Shinn by none other than Florence Scovel Shinn, a meta-physician and lecturer. Some excerpts:

If one asks for success and prepares for failure, he will get the situation he has prepared for. For example: A man came to me asking me to speak the word that a certain debt would be wiped out. I found he spent his time planning what he would say to the man when he did not pay his bill, thereby neutralizing my words. He should have seen himself paying the debt.

Man must prepare for the thing he has asked for, when there isn’t the slightest sign of it in sight.

Man can only receive what he sees himself receiving.

I am abundant. I am prosperous. I am deserving. I am.

And so it is.
