Monday Book Review: "Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting"

Our families will tell you, we weren’t always positive people. We’re who we are now from being in our caffected relationship, weeding out the negatives in our lives (from numerous stimuli), using many great books/CD’s available from the library or bookstore and choosing to focus on the positive life we’re creating. Attitude is a choice.

Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting’ by the late Lynn Grabhorn was recommended to us by friends who used her workbook as a couples study guide. That's a great way to build caffection -- strong work K & T.

Ms. Grabhorn believed in the Law of Attraction; focus on the lack or the abundance in your life and you get more of what you’re focusing on. She had us consider our attitude and the vibrational energy we send out into the universe. She’s given us a way to overcome the negative focus, push beyond the norm of societal wants and create a life based on our own choices. While reading her book we wrote a list of what we didn’t want. Once it was complete we shredded it; a very liberating practice that we highly recommend. Making a list of what we want is a continuous and evolving process. We take pleasure in deciding what we want, writing it down, focusing on it, talking about it, declaring it’s on the way and knowing it will show up soon. And guess what? It does. It’s the Law of Attraction; what you focus on expands.

This is K responding! Kathy, that is. You're right - it's all a choice. Moment by moment. To be caffected IS a choice. It may sound to some that it's easy or that you just happened to be lucky. Not so. If you choose to get married you have to CHOOSE to stay married and choose to stay caffected every day. Books like "Excuse Me Your Life is Waiting" are great reminders that life is what you make it. We attract what we think about, or rather what we vibrate. Our emotions are a result of our state of being. We recommend the "Playbook" that goes with the book as an exercise to do together as a couple. It's important to continue to work together on your dreams and desires as life progresses and the kids grow up and jobs come and go.
