Be Thankful for What You’ve Got

Treehugger: Understanding Catnip Might Help With Mosquito Control
When cats roll in and chew the plant, it releases more pest-repelling compounds
Most cats go bonkers over catnip.
It’s a distinctive response as they giddily chew and lick the plant, rolling in it, and rubbing their faces in it. Cats act the same around silver vine, an Asian plant with similar properties.

Inner Journey:STEP INTO SELF-AWARENESS
“Getting in touch with your true self must be your first priority.”
— Tom Hopkins
Here are some different aspects of self-awareness:
• Know yourself – Explore who you are: your defences, your blocks, your talents, your aspirations, etc.
• Accept yourself – We are at war with ourselves when we resist or deny certain aspects of who we are. Acknowledge the truth of who you are right now – the positives and the negatives. Only when we own our present reality can we change.
• Control yourself – Set clear, conscious intentions and discipline yourself to meet them.
• Express yourself – Go to your heart to identify what has meaning and purpose for you. Live your truth. Identify ways you can give back to life and be in service.
We work on each of these aspects all the time. But as our lives go through cycles, we predominantly work on one of them more than the others. Which aspect are you more conscious of lately?
“Our lives improve only when we take chances … and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.”
— Walter Anderson
“Adventure can be an end in itself. Self-discovery is the secret ingredient that fuels daring.”
— Grace Lichtenstein
A Note from the Universe
Did you know that whenever you think a brand-new thought, however fleeting, there are switches flicked here? Buttons pressed? Levers thrown? Banners unfurled? Wheels turned? Hats tipped? Winks winked? Angels sent? Connections made? And conga lines formed?
You wouldn’t even believe me if I told you what happens when you visualize.

“That is the truly beautiful and encouraging aspect of freedom; no one struggles for it just for himself.”
-Fanny Lewald, in Hanna Ballin Lewis, “The Education of Fanny Lewald”
If there is a lesson in our struggle for freedom, (and there always is a lesson, in any struggle) then it is that there is no separation between us. We are all one. We are not truly free until each and every one of us is free.

There may be a lot of possible things to do and places to go today. You don’t need to instantly decide anything upon waking up. Let your intuition guide you, and continue listening to that intuition as you begin down the path you’ve chosen. If work or family have dictated today, don’t be resentful but let intuition sort out the easiest and best route for you to follow.
