DAY 19 – CHOOSING THE RIGHT MEMORY LANE

Today is my wedding anniversary.  I know what you are thinking: but I’m Italian, I got married in Italy where nobody knew anything about Halloween.  Though my mother told me a few years ago that Halloween had landed in Italy too.  Globalization – which reminds me of the talk-about-good-news-only ripple effect I was talking about a couple of days ago –

Looking for a suitable image for today’s post, something that somehow combined halloween with wedding anniversary, I came across a picture of President Obama that took me back a year.  And I am tempted to take a little stroll down memory lane, to go revisit all that took place in what now seems like a lifetime ago and only yesterday, at the same time.  The global groaning, shuddering and reeling under the effect of the biggest financial tsunami to ever hit the world, was deafening.

I myself was clinging to a bare thread to keep myself from sinking, but the time came when… I am saved from staying on that dangerous path by checking my emails.

Today’s quote is another example of the Law of Attraction in action, for it tells me exactly what I need to hear.

“The content of your vibration equals how you feel right now. And whether

you’re thinking about the past, the present, or the future, how you feel

right now — as you think about the past, the present, or the future — is

your life. And it’s a precious, fabulous, creative life that you are not

wanting to squander in a place of resistance. Your life is right now”

— Abraham

I am reminded that this is a vibrational Universe and that responding to the vibrations created by our thoughts, the Law of Attraction does not differentiate between past, present or future.

That’s all the reminder I need to step off that train of thought, and eagerly jump on a different one.  On this one, I am being driven to the Church in the Piazza, where my tall, handpicked, aristocratic, English husband and his family had been waiting for me for almost an hour.  Ouch, but it hadn’t occurred to me to mention it that in Italy it is customary for the bride to be late.

What a wonderful wedding it was!  Then, when we stepped out of the Church as husband and wife, we were showered in rice.  When I looked up, I saw that the Piazza was full of people and they were singing what sounded like Happy Birthday To You in English.  In the small Sicilian town where I’m from, they are not used to foreigners, and I was, at the time, the only daughter in this town who’d left, gone “abroad” and returned to get married with a man who looked as if he’d stepped out of Buckingham Palace.  Now do you see why they’d all turned out to take a look?

Wow, I’ve done a really good vibrational job on myself down that memory lane.

Sorry, but I can’t stay here and talk to you all day; I’ve got to get into the right costume and celebrate.

Happy Halloween and See you tomorrow

Your blushing bride friend,

Success

    I like this one…I was feeling just a teensie bit sorry for myself and then I read this I and I was reminded that I was looking into the well of self pity. I wasn’t DIVING into it, but I spent more time there gazing into the abyss than was really necessary.

    So I “snapped out” of it, as Cher said in Moonstruck, and realized that self-pity is hypnotic. That’s not good.

    Then I put on a pair of bright orange pants, a black shirt and some nifty cufflinks I bought in Venice and I am on my way to a Halloween party. It may not be a real party but it will get me out of the house. I think is is was just for “Halloween brew” -whatever that is. Besides, who knows who might be there?

    • That’s the spirit my friend! I am sure you’ll have a WONDERFUL real party. Venice hei? Sounds quite…. how can I say it…. some nifty cufflinks that I bought in Venice.
      Bravo…. ancora….here’s to YOUR success 🙂
