Wingardium Leviooosah!

I'm a happy camper! Finally pre-ordered me a copy of HP&TDH at Times Bookstore in Warisan Square. The book is gonna be out on the 21st July and the shop people have told me that they will be opening at 7.01am that day (as will bookshops all over the world, apparently!). I can just imagine myself sneaking out in the morning, and then standing in line (with all the other kiasu kids! hehe) waiting for the shop to open. Shall I dress in a witch's hat and bring along a broom and sebatang kayu as a wand? Heeeeeeeeeeeee!

The Secret

Shhh...want to know The Secret?
Have you heard The Secret?

You might've heard about the recent hype of the book The Secret and also it's accompanying movie with the same title. If you're a self help junkie like I am, you've probably read or seen both.
So, what IS The Secret, you might ask?

The Secret is this: everything is governed by the Law of Attraction.

This is not some complex theory of quantum physics or science (well, actually on a deeper level, there is a connection). Simply put, the Law of Attraction says that you attract whatever you want, through your thoughts and feelings and actions.

If you want something, money for instance - everyone wants money, right? Thinking thoughts of wealth and abundance, will give you the wealth and abundance. If you keep thinking that you don't have enough money then the law of attraction says that you will always not have enough money! If you keep thinking that you need to lose weight, you will always need to lose weight and never reach that ideal weight you want. In short, concentrate on the things that you want and be grateful for what you already have. Don't dwell on what you don't want and what you don't have.

There are 3 steps in applying the law of attraction; ask, believe and receive. The first step is to ask for what you want or to put your intentions out there. The second step is to believe that you will have it, that you deserve it and that you already do have it. Visualize yourself having what you want. And the third step is to receive what you want with gratitude.

Try and apply this to any faucet of your life. It works! Read the book, it's amazingly powerful stuff. If you get a chance to watch the movie, it will reinforce the stuff that's in the book especially if you are a more visual person, like me.

I had a law of attraction moment yesterday....I was looking at this guy's business card, with the intention to call him later. And a few minutes after that, he called me! That's the law of attraction, at work for you.

Whatever you want, whatever you think and feel, you will attract it to you. Your thoughts become things. And the simplest thing you can do really, is to think happy and good thoughts, cos that will always be attracting happy and good things to yourself! It's as simple as that. That's The now you know...

Like Going Home

"Nahhh, dia balik sudah!" said the aunty to Michelle, gesturing at me. The way she said it, was like I'd just got home from a long trip away. I managed a sheepish snigger.

Truth is, the aunty was the receptionist and Michelle the Pilates instructor. Yes, after a hiatus of almost a month, I managed to get myself to attend Pilates class at Scott and Michelle's yesterday. And in between doing the side stretch and the mermaid pose, I couldn't help but smile to myself. That reception, 'nah, dia balik sudah..' made me feel ever so welcomed, like I was a fool to ever not come, like this was a place I would always enjoy going home to. Indeed. I always come out of Pilates class feeling serene and healthy, like I could just eat a whole plate of broccoli for dinner.

FYI, I ate a bowl of spinach and a tomato for dinner. Healthy, healthy me ;-)


My Life Is Mine

Something to re-read often, to remind myself that my life is mine, my decisions are mine and I am the only one responsible in shaping and making my own life:

My Weekend Indulgence

Weekends have become an indulgence for me. It's when I catch up on all the tv shows I miss on the weekdays - due to its showing too late or other unpredictable circumstances (baby wants to go to bedroom early).

Let's see, before this, it was just Grey's Anatomy at 130pm on Sundays. We usually go out for brunch around 1130 or noon and then we'd be rushing to go home or to my folks place so that I can enjoy my viewing of McDreamy, McSteamy and McKarev! (I liked McVet actually!) And it's soooo worth it. To rush home to catch the show, I mean. Totally love it. There aren't many shows these days that satisfies my need for an emotionally engaging storyline with great characters, witty one liners, non over the top drama all in one. Many a times I had to hold back tears, just because of that one line or one act or one look. I love a good cry, actually!

And now that Lost is back on AXN, Saturdays will also be a day to look forward to watch the repeat. The season 3 opener was...intriguing, interesting and slightly annoying. Sepa bah 'the others' ni? And how do they know so much about all the passengers? Geram aku.

I also watch repeat of Heroes on Saturday. I love watching it again, even though I've seen the whole episode. But there are those days when Yasmin wants to go to bed early and I miss those crucial last 10 minutes or so and am thankful for Astro's repeats. Hubby was mentioning that we could just borrow the dvd from our friend (you know who you are :) yang pandai kasi bocor butir2 yang tidak sepatutnya tu... )and finish off the whole thing in one viewing. But then....there won't be anymore anticipation, right? What would there be to look forward to on Wednesday nights?
