High Vibing It!

Rapunzel, from her castle, has tagged me for the High Vibes meme: What raises your vibes?
Hmmm..I have many actually!

1. My husband, family and friends always high vibe me. They are the most important entities in my life. I love connecting, sharing time at meals, coffees, or on holidays up at the lake. I spend a lot of energy e-mailing, phoning and getting together with these people in order to stay connected. Having no kids, we are able to do this more easily and these people have all expressed their appreciation that we have always done this well.

2. My cats are almost real people to me! Mooky and Socks are my little children and we give unconditional love to each other constantly. They give me much joy and feature prominently in my life as High Vibers!

3. Kids in school or other people's kids give me a lot of joy and amusement. I have a good rapport with kids and can establish a really fun relationship with them easily.

4. two choirs, singing to guitar with kids or by myself, listening to my Cd's, and going to the odd concert raise my energy and appreciation of life. I am really emotionally touched by much music and it makes me feel connected to the world in a spiritual way.

5. SALES! garage sales, flea markets, second hand stores and getting a good bargain at any store gets my adrenaline going! I love clothes, antiques, and knick-knacks and I can always rationalise a purchase if it's a steal.

6. Physical Touch...I love massage and treat myself to one every week. I couldn't live without a lot of hugging my husband, family and friends. I crave cuddling with my husband.

7. Exercise. As much as this is sometimes difficult for me, I feel good and proud after I've walked, biked, or had a good session of working out. I usually only do it for 40 minutes, but with all my health issues, that's doing well for me.

8. Writing. I left this till last since it's almost a given for most bloggers. I've always tried to express myself by writing stories and poems since about Gr. 3. It is an excellent way for me to get all the thoughts, feelings, and issues that are rolling around my head, out outside myself. There is a sense of relief and accomplishment when you see your writing in a concrete form on paper or a computer screen.

I think that's it for now! If you'd like to grab this meme, please do. It's a great way to focus on the positive aspects of your life. It helped me do that especially now when I have some precarious health issues pending.

Thanks, Rapunzel!

MoI - you've done it again!! shown us that indomitable spirit of yours, its strength and its compassions.

You are the first person I think of when it comes to a good Vibe in my life - always sending me an encouraging word.... which then led me to thing of all my blogging friends - what an awesome group: funny, witty, smart as whips, talented and all very very caring.......

and MY KIDS ...... that one goes without most children, they frustrate me, drive me nuts ......but darn, when they are with dad, i sure do feel that loneliness descend upon the house ....... just knowing that their warm little bodies are not in their rooms sleeping........or even hearing the high pitch whines of bickering ....... the background music of my days ........

always a joy to visit you, MoI

Lynette: Thanks and I don't blame you! Summer's too busy!

OldoldladyofHills: Thanks and I think it lets the person get to know themselves a bit better too, odd as that may sound!

Gewells: Yes, I liked this one.

Meno: Somehow reading never makes it to my list!

Rdg: Gee, Thanks! You always see the positive in me. We are an awfully dynamic group aren't we?!

Hope your kids come home soon!

godness, I wish you felt better, but as I have said lately 'be joyful!'. Easier said than done sometimes.

Gr: Yeah, me too! Thanks! Still too hot up here! I'm trying to be joyful, but it's harder sometimes when you don't feel fabulous.

I'm not a touchy feely person but I like to cuddle too. I am lucky that The Boyfriend loves to cuddle too. He's much more naturally affectionate than I am, which is good because he balances me out.

Most of what you said works for me too, except I would substitute DOGS for CATS!

Toraa: We must be a lot alike then which means she must be a great gal too! HA!
I'll have cake and coffee but no thanks to the other 3! Missing cats?? Yikes! Find them!

Griz: My husband was not cuddly or physically demonstrative when we met but he is more that way because I bring it out in him.

Barbara: Yes, and you'd be adding reding, which I really do little of, odd as that is.
