Paint Party FridayA few weeks back we spent time cleaning and purging for an appraisal on our home. One morning we recycled a few old electronics, some small appliances, and our bottles. All that old stuff was holding negative energy in our garage! Cupcake got nine dollars for our bottles then tootled off to work.
When Cupcake hears a young coworker complaining about life, she'll ask them to tell her three good things about their day.... If they're perplexed about her query, she'll ask a gamut of questions! Whether they had a good sleep in a cozy bed, a nice breakfast, if they have a roof over their head? Whatever their answers, she jovially reminds them how fortunate they are. Once they absorb what she's said, they smile! She lets them know if they can find a few things in their day to be grateful for they're doing well. Once their train of thought changes, they perk up, and seem happier.

Stopping at Shoppers she saved 20 dollars in coupon items. Her first hour of work a customer stopped by handing her a mall gift certificate for another 20 dollars! For no reason, except that she'd listened to the woman the previous Monday while she was going through such difficulty. Upon return the lady expressed how Cupcake really made a difference in her life. The woman having spoken with two physicians, all of her friends and her partner had not found resolve until she spoke with Cupcake. Unfortunately Cupcake only remembers that she listened to the woman, but doesn't recall how she responded! Two hours into her day Cupcake was up 49 dollars and had so much positive energy in her realm! Her secret.....she is always grateful for even the smallest things! To be honest she was born that way.....even when she was little she would sincerely thank me at the most random times!!
Another day was spent intensely focused on a room that needed some real love and attention. My room!! It's difficult to do in on my own now and I was thrilled to have a couple of helpers ! The next day on her way to work Cupcake found her favorite discontinued perfume for a huge discount, as well as much needed high end makeup brushes for only a few dollars. Plus her favorite converse runners were finally back in stock. Turquoise too!
Our whole week continued with lovely little surprises suited to our lifestyle... container tubes Cupcake had been waiting for arrived so she could make own lipsol, since she is so allergic to the over the counter ones.

We also purged several bags for charity....so with all the energy draining items out of our home we are open to positive energy coming in! Plus we found a few misplaced items during the cleanup and got a pride of ownership comment tacked on to the appraisal!
Have you ever noticed when you give things away, or donate items, even better things appear in your life? What negative draining items are you hanging onto?.....I hope it's not a spouse!
