Five Ways That I Raise My Vibrations

I have been putting together a list of feelgood blogs and websites today (what a lovely job for a Monday!) I might not get a chance to post it today, but just wanted to share a meme I found on the lovely Theory of Thought:

Five Ways That I Raise My Vibrations

Spending Time With Friends and Family: I love big family get togethers, chaotic meals with friends, or quiet moments curled up with my daughters. And a cuddle with Mrs. Tizzywinkle always does me the power of good. A purring cat works wonders on frazzled spirits!


Revelling in Nature: I find nature uplifting and love sharing it on long walks with friends (usually while putting the world to rights, which feels good too!) I always notice nature's gorgeousness, like the red trees that stopped me in my tracks last week. But the small things make me smile too, a butterfly (or a tiny bug), the way the sun spills through a cloud or highlights a spider's web, daisies littering the lawn. And I love standing by mountains or the sea and feeling very small. Or watching a storm. On a clear night I'm a positive danger, as I walk while gazing up at the stars in total amazement.

Thinking Positively: I make wishes all the time! And believe they will come true ... if they're meant to. Every time I blow out a candle, see the first star, find a penny, catch a falling leaf ... My glass is always overflowing, even if it's not always with the thing I expected. I love the challenge of turning a negative into a positive.

Expressing My Creativity: Creating something beautiful, especially a gift (something that will be loved by someone, will make someone feel good), is always a total delight for me. I have lots of outlets for creativity - including gardening, cooking, clay, textiles, writing ...

Not Forgetting the Practical Stuff: Food. Growing, cooking and eating it. Sharing it, especially. Sleep. I need a lot of sleep and suffer if I don't get enough for too many days in a row. And some 'me' time every day, perhaps a walk, or an aromatherapy bath, or finding ten minutes to just chill out with a favourite magazine.
Haha! I wish. Still haven't got round to reading Saturday's Guardian ...


This meme was posted by The Thinker in October last year, so with apologies to anyone who has already done it, I tag Lane, aliqot, Helen, Gonna Be and Leigh.
Have fun! :o)

Thanks for tagging me, this one looks like fun!

Leigh said...

I love what you've written here, Moondreamer. The turning of things negative into things positive is a particularly good reminder to make the best of life. I shall try and carry this with me (at least until I forget). I'm with you on the nature and family time too, but I'll try to be original if I can.

Thanks for the tag!

Lane said...

Nice vibrations! All your choices are very nurturing and warm. Lovely!
Thanks for the tag. I look forward to giving it a go:-)

Moondreamer said...

You're welcome, Helen!

Enjoy!

:o)

Thank you Leigh!

I usually look on the bright side of life, but we all need reminding sometimes. That's why I'm putting together a whole list of blogs and websites that make me feel good!

Can't wait to share them with you all!

:o)

'Nice vibrations!' I love that, Lane, thank you!

You say such lovely things, one reason I am so full of warm fuzzies at the moment!

:o)

Have fun, girls! I look forward to reading your answers! x

You'll have to wait for the weekend for my answers. How am I to survive the cold turkey of no internet for four days? lol.

But I'll be thinking about it.

I'd love a cuddle with Mrs Tizzywinkle, and I don't even like cats :o)

Casdok said...

Im with you on those!

Lane said...

There's an award for you at mine:-)

Annieye said...

I know what you mean about gazing at the stars and watching the sea. And there's nothing like stroking a dog or a cat to de-stress.

Gonna be a writer said...

Great meme Thanks for tagging me. I'm going to do my answers right now.
Excellent answers btw

Moondreamer said...

Have a fab time, aliqot!

Hope the Yorkshire weather is kind to you!

:o)

Karen, what a lovely thing to say ... am sure Tizzy will agree!

She is truly irresistible. (She'd agree with that too!)

:o)

Casdok, thank you!

It was very hard to choose only five! (Hence the inclusion of Mrs T. in family and friends, when she should have had a whole one to herself!)

:o)

Lane, thank you so much!

I feel very honoured to receive an award from someone whose blog I think is so fab!

:o)

Annieye, you're right. It's said that stroking cats and dogs even lowers blood pressure!

:o)

Gonna be, you're welcome!

I'm really looking forward to your answers.

And thank you, I'm glad you liked them!

:o)

I've actually done this at last.

Suddenly wanted to make the list longer.
