I Forgive Me


I have a few regrets for 2013 that I would like to share. It's not easy to share regrets, but I kind of feel like airing our regrets out is the only way to forgive ourselves and move on.

I regret holding onto anger and sadness for things people have said to me- recent past and even things from long ago.

I regret not working harder towards my goals.

I regret not calling/e-mailing people I said I would keep in touch with.

I regret not spending more time with some of my family and friends. I regret any moment longer that I spent with anyone that I did not want to be spending time with.

I regret not taking better care of myself- including the things I have consumed and my lack of physical activity.

I regret some lies I have told and secrets I've kept regardless of the reasons for doing so.

I regret not living more in the now even after I swore I would.

There, I think that covers everything. These are my regrets. Now, I must forgive...

I forgive every single person in my past that has something negative to me or about me. I forgive every single person in my past who has hurt me whether they meant to or not. I forgive myself for bad things I may have said or done in retaliation. I want to go into 2014 with a clean slate in regards to my feelings about people and believing that there is genuine good in folks.

I now forgive myself for not working harder on my goals and intend to spend 2014 doing just that. I will take another look at the things I want in life and spend every day making the dreams into realities.

I forgive myself for not calling/e-mailing and not keeping in touch. I plan on doing a better job of hanging on to relationships and forming new ones in 2014. I will spend more time with people I want to spend time with and stop spending time with those I don't care to spend time with.

I now forgive myself for not taking care of myself and look forward to going into 2014 with the plan to eat better, drink better, work out more, meditate more and take better care of my mind, body and spirit.

I now forgive myself for lies and secrets and plan to make things right in 2014. I will pay off my debts and free myself of my shackles.

I now forgive myself for not living in the moment. I plan to try harder in 2014 to appreciate every single moment I have and only do the things I actually want to do that will be for the benefit of my wishes, hopes and dreams.

What do you want more of in 2014? What are your regrets? Air it out and then forgive yourself!

12 Myths About Happiness

 
I found THIS article on the Yahoo! homepage today. The article 12 Myths About Happiness, Debunked! mentioned two myths that really hit home for me:
 
Myth #3: Happiness is based on external circumstances and Myth #4: You can't buy happiness 
 
For me the reason that this really got to me is for a while I've been way to obsessed with finding happiness externally instead of within myself and with buying happiness even though it simply can't be done.
 
I have to find my happiness regardless of my financial circumstance. Although it is sometimes hard to remember that when struggling to pay your bills at the end of the month, the truth is even the months I have been able to pay everything on time I still want more. No matter what, I'll always want more. It's just the way it is. So, I have to choose to be happy regardless of what is going on in my life.

Doggone It, People Like Me!

 


What a fun book! I just stumbled upon the book "I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!: Daily Affirmations" by Stuart Smalley and I LOVE the title alone!!!

Check out the book description:
The ultimate meditation book, not to be grandiose...

Take a hilarious, healing journey with Stuart Smalley as he careens down the road to Recovery.  For one entire year Stuart recorded an affirmation a day...except when he had taken to his bed (but that's Okay)...and the result is the most entertaining and indispensable meditation book ever.

From program wisdom (Denial Ain't Just a River in Egypt!  December 1) to survival tips (When I Go Home to Visit My Family I Will Stay in a Motel! September 26) to some good sound practical advice (I am entitled to file for an Extension on my Income Taxes!  April 15th), Stuart's affirmations will empower you!

Work, Friendship, Love, Spirituality, Codependency, Self-Esteem, Acceptance...Stuart deals with it all.  And as you share his ups and downs, his triumphs and shame spirals, you will come to see the ultimate truth of Stuart's March 21st affirmation:  Today I Will Laugh--At Least Once!

Don't Need No Rocking Chair!

 


"Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere."

True story! All worry does is make you feel bad and work you up for no reason. I've definitely been guilty of worrying and it just leads to bad thoughts and actually has caused trouble in the past. Let it go. Feel positive and positive things will happen.

Only Positive Attitudes

 

You know those signs at bars that say "No Alcohol Beyond This Point"? I wish I had this one at my house on my front door so that any one that wanted to enter would know that only positive attitudes are allowed in my living space. There is nothing worse than negativity in the space you live because that is where we go to escape the world and the world is negative enough so I declare my home a positive only zone!!!

Stepping Stones

 

Have you ever heard the country music song by Lari White? It's called Stepping Stone. Welp, if you have never heard it, that's fine...My favorite part of the song is the chorus:

This ain't no stumbling block
It's just a stepping stone
I'm gonna climb right up on top
And take a good look at where I'm going
And it ain't gonna slow me down
Hold me back or turn me around (Stepping Stone)
This ain't no stumbling block (Stepping Stone)
It ain't no stumbling block (Stepping Stone)
This ain't no stumbling block
It's just a stepping stone



Brilliant! Don't let things get in your way of your dreams. They aren't going to trip you up unless you let them. Pick your self back up and use that block that tripped you as a stepping stone to the next step and keep going until you reach what you want!

Stop Waiting!

 

Stop Waiting for Things to Happen - Go Out and Make Them Happen

Personally, this is something I've been struggling with for 10 years! Yep, 10 years. Not a typo...I have been wishing and hoping for soooooooo long but when you don't add action to those wishes and hopes NOTHING will happen. Now, I'm not saying to stop believing in the Law of Attraction. What I'm saying is sitting in a corner praying for things to arrive isn't the way to live your life. You still have to move forward. Motion yields things actually coming to you. Although you still shouldn't focus on the "HOW" for the things you desire to come to you, at least realizing what you want and doing SOMETHING towards it can attract those things into your life. 

Walking out of your home and doing SOMETHING allows the universe to see you are ready for action and you are ready for it to show you the "HOW". Hope this makes sense. Basically if you at least start on a journey you have the chance to change the course when the universe pulls you or signals you in a different direction, but if you just sit still you will never get anywhere.

It Was Never Between You and Them Anyway

 

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

-this version is credited to Mother Teresa

Dare to Do Mighty Things

 

#quotes 
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, than to take rank with those poor timid spirits who know neither victory nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt



To me this quote simply says rather than listen to what people think, do what you want. Many times people give advice on things they have never even tried (at least in my life anyway). Dare to do mighty things regardless of the opinions of others. You never know if YOU can succeed until you at least try!

Only Positive Attitudes Allowed

 

If you get frustrated with pals that are being negative just happily announce that "Only Positive Attitudes Allowed in This Area". Personally, I have learned that when I am around negative thinking people I start getting all negative, so cut that crap out and be positive! If the negativity continues feel free to walk away. No sense staying when you deserve to be positive and thus happy!

The Prosperity Game Days 135-365


I know that I'm far from the end of this game. The last day of the Prosperity Game is actually Monday, January, 27, 2014. However, I want to focus more on writing other things and have realized I'm going to continue missing posts, so here's how the rest of the money would be spent for the rest of the year...

The total income received for the rest of the year for days 135 through 365 is $57,750,000. That's a crap ton of money!!!! No one I know needs that much money. What I foresee for the rest of the days is the following....

- My husband and I have already put aside $2 million to live off of in savings bonds.
- My husband and I also purchased real estate on days 100-120 condos and small homes to rent out for investment purposes. So we can make additional money in case we want to have extra income to play with.
- We will purchase a total of $2 million in savings bonds for my mom, my dad, my father-in-law, my sister, my sister-in-law and for the possible two kids my hubby and I may one day have (That adds up to $14 million for those keeping track). That still leaves us with $43,750,000 after all of that generosity.
- With the rest of the money...we are going to spend $2,000 a day on travel seeing the world and the rest we are just going to give away on miscellaneous crowdfunding sites and to charity. That's it, that's all she wrote. We got to live out a dream life of traveling expensively for a year and we shared lots of money with strangers that wanted to live out their dreams. We spent lots of money and we have lots of savings bonds and now my husband and I and our families can live off the interest of the savings bonds we have purchased for years to come.
- The Prosperity Game was a lot of fun. It would be amazing to receive the $66,795,000 in real income that is received in the game. However, my favorite thing about this game was seeing just how little we need in reality to be happy and live out our dreams. I feel like I am more prosperous already and that I am attracting abundance and that I am in fact a money magnet.

What I've Learned from the Prosperity Game

money stacks 

I've once again been lacking on posting the days expenses of the Prosperity Game. I think I have figured out why. I'm only missing one thing to be at my optimal level of happiness and that is enough money to pay my bills and travel more. Throughout this game the main thing that has hit home for me is that my main goal is to have $2 million in the bank ($1 million for me and $1 million for my husband) and live off the interest for the rest of our lives. Anything beyond that would most likely be used for family and friends until he and I decide to have children. That is the only time I can foresee the need to increase that number.

With my bank offering 4% interest, we would make $80,000 per year in interest. After taxes at least $56,000 per year and for my husband and I we have determined that is plenty to live out our dreams. Sure, there may be some years we want to spend more than that amount, but that is when we would do things to make extra income to be able to do them.

I am happy as can be writing, taking pictures, exploring and sharing the things I see and hear and do. My husband loves helping people streamline their businesses, be more efficient in the things they do and enjoys programming and setting up computer networks for people.

Odds are when we get our $2 million in the bank we will continue working and money we earn will go towards gifts we couldn't buy for friends and family before, events we couldn't attend, toys we couldn't buy, but the bottom line is that even with just the bare minimum in interest we know we could live off of it.

My new goal is to find some way to make that $2 million as quickly as possible and then live off it! I want to volunteer more, goof off more, hang out more, enjoy things more and just be happy. If I write an eBook and sell it for $3.99 on Amazon I'll make about $2 off each book. So, all I need to do is sell a million copies. I already have an amazing idea that I am pretty sure would sell that many. The task at hand is not a crazy or impossible one, so I'm going to work on that.

If more money than that comes into my life, awesome. I'll think of plenty of fun ways to spend it I'm sure. I'm just happy knowing that I finally figured out the number I want to strive for now.

Thank you for the money constantly coming to me quickly and easily. In my daily life I am attracting abundance. I am a money magnet. I always have enough and am always attracting positivity and exciting adventures. I can afford to travel and do all the things I want to do daily.

I Quit Working and It Feels So Good



They say that if you love what you are doing, you will never work a day in your life. Well, I love what I am doing, so I guess you could say I quit working.

I'm looking forward to all the amazing things that are coming down the pipe into my life while I continue writing, blogging and taking pictures. These activities are bringing me my income, but I'm loving every minute of these activities! I plan to keep at them until I don't want to any more and then I'll find other things to do that I love to keep me from ever having to work again.

I am so happy that the things I love to do are bringing me money and the things I need to survive. I'm so grateful that I am a money magnet. I'm so ecstatic that everything I want to do in my lifetime I will be able to do. I'm grateful for all that I have, all that I'm receiving, all that is heading and all the fun adventures I'm going to have.

Thank you for my amazing life and the ability to quit working! I am living a life of happiness. Abundance and luxury are flowing to me quickly and easily.

The Prosperity Game - Day 122 - 130

New York Postcard image  

My husband and I spent 3 days in Rhode Island and then spent the rest of the time in New York. Each day we spent about $3000 on entertainment, lodging, food and miscellaneous expenses. We were left with $980,000 after all of those expenses and we gave every penny away to strangers on crowdfunding sites so that others could live out their dreams the way we have been living out ours. It is so nice to be able to pay for everything we want to do and still be able to give so much charity to others. We're having a blast living out our dreams of traveling the world while doing the things we love doing.

I've been taking more pictures and writing more than ever before and my husband has been building things, working on computer programs to better the efficiency of businesses and basically just everything he feels like doing as time goes on.

Thank you for the money constantly coming to me quickly and easily. In my daily life I am attracting abundance. I am a money magnet. I always have enough and am always attracting positivity and exciting adventures. I can afford to travel and do all the things I want to do daily.

Be Happier at Work

I found a cool list of 11 Ways to Be Happier at Work. My favorite thing on the list is to do the thing you dread the most first. I love my job as a blogger, freelance writer and photographer very much, but even I sometimes get lazy and don't want to work. There are aspects of every job that some folks dread and for me it's editing photos. It bores me to tears...The faster I get that task over with the faster I can get back to the things in my job I love to do. Check out the list of 11 Ways to Be Happier at Work yourself and tell me what you think. Do you have another way to be happy at work that isn't on this list? Leave it in the comments below...

I Want Clocks to Not Matter


Today I cost my family money because I over slept. Basically, at my husband's job if you are late to work the day after a holiday you lose your holiday pay. I hit the snooze button one too many times and boom- he was late and the money was gone all because I couldn't get up on time....

I want to have a life where clocks don't matter. I want my husband and I to have enough money flowing to us freely, quickly and easily that we can sleep when we need sleep, eat when we need food, work when we want to work, do other activities when we get board and on and on we go...

I want to truly be a money magnet and use the law of attraction to set up a life of financial stability that doesn't rely on alarm clocks to boost my bank account. I want to have my work be as much fun as it is now and make my family enough money that my husband doesn't have to work in a job he doesn't like.

He has always said he loves to work and wouldn't mind working until the job is done but that the confines of a set schedule and clocking in and out are what drives him crazy.

What I do for a living has a deadline, but I make my own schedule. As a contracted writer and photographer I do have to get things done by a date, but I decide if I'm going to work on my articles or edit my photos in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Sure, if I'm photographing an event with a set time I have to be there at a set time, but I'm fortunate that my entire work life doesn't revolve around clocks. I want this freedom for my husband too!

My goal is to make it so that clocks are not the false god we have to worship in order for my husband to bring in income.

Thank you for the money constantly coming to me quickly and easily. In my daily life I am attracting abundance. I am a money magnet. I always have enough and am always attracting positivity and exciting adventures. I can afford to travel and do all the things I want to do daily.

The Prosperity Game - Day 121

rhode island 

We have been in Hawaii for a loooooooong time. I think now that the weather is getting warmer it's time to get back to our road trip. All the clothes, cars, miscellaneous goods we have used in Hawaii we will donate to charity and then we will hop a flight to Rhode Island to finish visiting all the states we were attempting to see. The last state we visited was Massachusetts so I think it's time for somewhere new.

As of today I'm two weeks sober so I won't be adding any drinking to the tab going forward, but that doesn't mean the fun stops!!!

The hard thing now is figuring out what to spend all this money on. My husband and I have to spend the entire amount that we receive each day in this game and we're learning how little we actually need to live out our dreams, feel prosperous and feel generous. The funniest thing is the more we are receiving the more we find ourselves just giving away the money. That's also very encouraging and exciting!

Even after the flight and hotel in Los Angeles (have to change planes and arrive in Rhode Island the next day) and all of our food, drinks, entertainment, etc... we will still have well over $118,000 and we will just give it away on a crowdfunding site again! We're already done saving for our retirement and have real estate properties we are going to use to keep money after the end of this year so, we have plenty of money to just give away!

Thank you for the money constantly coming to me quickly and easily. In my daily life I am attracting abundance. I am a money magnet. I always have enough and am always attracting positivity and exciting adventures. I can afford to travel and do all the things I want to do daily.

Prosperity Game Days 82-120

lots of money 

Once again it has been a loooooooong time since I've added an update to the spending of the money we are receiving daily. Just like before we have spent $24,000 a day on savings bonds for retirement.

As of today, my husband and I have $2,010,250 in Savings Bonds toward our retirement! With this we are done buying savings bonds because we feel that is the amount we wanted to save up prior to retirement and even at just 4% interest we will be earning more than $80,000 and have decided we can live off that :)


We spent $2,000 a day on food, entertainment, lodging, etc... On days 82-100 we gave the rest of the money away to folks attempting to live their dreams on miscellaneous crowdfunding websites. One days 100-120 we bought real estate! Lots of it- condos and small homes to rent out for investment purposes.

Worry Less and Giggle More


I love this idea - Worry less and giggle more. What a brilliant way to live, don't you think? I believe I should start doing this today!!!! They say that laughter is the best medicine for what ails you and I prefer to be a laughing soul than a depressed one. Perhaps laughter is, dare I say, a secret to happiness.

My challenge to you- if you find you are feeling low, find something to make you laugh as quickly as possible.
Write down your worry and then throw it away believing that it will take care of itself or that some other power will make it work out. If you can change your worry do so, if not, let it go and find a way to laugh!

Dream Wish DO!



I just saw a blog post from Sarah Jenks about dreaming vs. doing. I have thought about this in the past, but then life got in the way. Instead of acting on my dreams, I constantly get caught up in the day to day. I'm sure you have been there to. In the end the only person you can TRULY depend on for YOUR dreams to come true is YOU!!!

Also check out 5 Things I Learned From Sarah Jenks

My dream is to be a traveling writer and photographer making money of my writing and photography and sharing my travels with the world. I know how much money I need to make this happen. I know all the obstacles standing in my way. Now, it is my job to DO something every single day to work towards this dream coming true.

Learn how to get bikini ready without dieting!

From now on I will do one thing daily to make my dream of being a traveling writer and photographer come true. I’ll write an extra blog post a day to make me that money I need to pay down the debt. I’ll work on my eBooks to sell them to fund my airline tickets. I’ll sell more photographs. I WILL DO what it takes to make my dream come true!!! (then, I’ll come up with a new dream to work on)
What is your dream?

The Prosperity Game Days 54-81

Waikiki  

I know it's been nearly a month since I posted a Prosperity Game update. For the past few weeks we have been staying in Waikiki, Oahu and I've been writing and taking pictures and my husband has been developing a video game while helping me with coding on my websites. We've surfed and swam when we have wanted to. We have eaten and drank when we wanted to. We have gotten massages, gone to luaus, slept in, relaxed and just enjoyed island life for a while. Here's an update on where all that money went every day that we have stayed here.

We spent $24,000 a day on savings bonds for retirement. We spent $2,000 a day on food, entertainment, lodging, etc... The rest of the money ALL went to users on Kickstarter to help others fulfill their dreams like we have been able to fulfill ours daily. That means that in the last 27 days we have given $1,162,000 to people we don't know allowing them to do the things they want to do!!!  It feels soooooo good to be able to help so many strangers live out their dreams by donating the money freely. The best part is knowing that more and more money will keep coming to us and my husband and I will always have enough money in our lives.

As of today, Jeremy and I still have $1,074,250 in Savings Bonds toward our retirement!

We Must Try

roger ebert 

"We must try to contribute joy to the world. This is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try."- Roger Ebert


I love this quote. No matter what is going on in our daily lives, we should still emit a feeling of joy, happiness, and good things. Keep sharing your light, it's contagious!

Chapter 2 Life Lesson 5 Exercise: Mastering LOA

LOA chicken soup book 

I said that I was going to do the exercises from the book  Life Lessons for Mastering the Law of Attraction and, so, here is the exercise from Chapter 2, Life Lesson Life Lesson #5 which is "Call in Your Team":

The exercise is to answer some questions about "your team" and here are my answers:
1. Who's on your team? Mainly my husband.
2. What role do you want them to take on with you? I want him to be my partner 50-50 in absolutely everything. I want him to be my equal, my rock, my love.
3. How do you want them to support you? I want him to travel with me all over the world and help me make money to fulfill OUR dreams of seeing everything we want to see and doing everything we want to do.
4. Are you forcing anyone to be on your team? No, I'm never forcing him and he never forces me. We encourage each other to keep going towards our dreams sometimes, but we never force one another to do anything WE don't want to do.
5. Who else could you find that's more suitable? People could come in and out of our lives as assistants to the team of me and my husband, but no one will ever have a permanent role. We are a two person team that is strong by ourselves but we always welcome help now and again and recognize when we need it and can't accomplish something towards our foals on our own.


 

Chapter 2 Life Lesson #4 Exercise: Mastering LOA

LOA chicken soup book 

I said that I was going to do the exercises from the book  Life Lessons for Mastering the Law of Attraction and, so, here is the exercise from Chapter 2, Life Lesson Life Lesson #4 which is "You Are Always at Choice":

The exercise is to see yourself in a movie scene of your life feeling and being exactly how you want to be and feel. You are supposed to immerse yourself in the scene visually and mentally taking in how you would be feeling, thinking and what you're experiencing in the scene. My scene would be me and my husband packing and getting ready for a trip of wonder and amazement to explore the world. My dream is to be a professional blogger that travels the world taking pictures and videos and blogs about all that we see and do and learn and taste and touch, etc... I picture my husband and I about to step out into the world with new eyes ready to share our experiences with anyone and everyone willing to follow our journey through my blogging and vlogging. :)

Your Secret to Unlimited Abundance


There's something inside you. It wants to get out... We're talking about your wealth potential. The universe wants you to be abundant.You were designed to attract money and success like a fish to bait. And the only thing that's stopping you from doing that right now…

The only thing that's holding you back from making all the right investments, meeting all the right
people and finding all the right opportunities…

Is your energetic frequency. Just like 99% of people on the planet, your energy is blocked.

It's been sabotaged from intelligently manifesting all the abundance you need to do what you want.

And until you do something about it, you're going to be stuck where you are for a very long time.

Which is why it's so important that you experience this: A free energy clearing session 

Over the last week we've been talking to you about energy clearing and Abundance Blocks.

And now, our friend and professional energetic coach Christie Marie Sheldon is hosting a free online energy clearing session for our community.

In this session, Christie will tap into your personal energy field and remove an Abundance Block from you.

An Abundance Block is a subconscious obstacle that holds you back from attracting wealth and success.

Ever felt stuck or unsatisfied with your finances? Your career? Your manifesting ability?

There's a high chance you're suffering from an Abundance Block.

The block could be a a subtle belief your teachers gave you, like "hard work is the only path to success".

It could be a meme fed to you by the media, like "the economy is going down the drain and we're all screwed".

Or it could even be a seemingly innocent thought implanted by your parents, like "rich people are evil".

There are 25 different Abundance Blocks in existence - and everyone is affected by at least some of them.

But the Block Christie will tackle during the session is by far one of the most common and damaging ones.

And once it's removed from you, you'll see massive and instant improvements in your finances,
your career, your life as a whole.

The session happens on Thursday, 6 p.m. PST.

And just so you know, this is NOTHING like your typical everyday energy clearing session.

For one, you can actually feel Christie working with your energy.

Thousands of people took part when Christie hosted a similar session earlier this year, and many have reported "weird" and "phenomenal" results.

Think surprise checks in the mail.

Lucrative business deals manifesting out of thin air.

Brilliant ideas that help you shine at work.

And other astonishing synchronicities.

What will energy clearing do for YOU?

One way to find out:


Remember the dates: Thursday at 6 p.m. PST.

Hope you enjoy this!
Love always,
The Famous Ashley Grant
