Distracted by Sugar Ants!

I had a wonderful idea for a blog post planned for today, and I got distracted. Guess what distracted me? Yup! SUGAR ANTS! Yes, I’m shouting. For crying out loud, they threw off my entire day. It’s 11:30am as I type this out … is it too early for a glass of wine? And I don’t even drink … much.

Everything started out wonderful. I got in about 25 minutes of yoga when I woke up. Then a quick, brisk walk in some cool weather this morning with the dog. I was so happy to catch some of the cooler (48 degrees) weather here in Florida before the heat of the day warmed it back up (to almost 80). I took my shower and came into the kitchen to eat breakfast. Whammo! Tiny little ants I could barely see with my naked eye all over my counter! ARGHHHH. It took me almost two hours to clean them up and figure out where they were coming from.

You see, this is another reason why winter bothers me here. We aren’t supposed to get bugs in January. At least not an ARMY of them. Now I’m starting this post late and it’s not even what I wanted to write. Guess I’ll have to save that one for tomorrow after my morning doctor appointment (not looking forward to the doc either).

Okay … some deep breaths … I decided to clean the slate and start my day over from here on out. I took a few minutes to meditate. Not as long as I usually prefer, but it sufficed. I read my daily affirmation and thought I’d share it here. A warning about the language in advance. The word <gasp> “God” will come up, so if you’re offended by the word, please turn the page. 🙂 Also, be on the lookout for the word “Divine” if you are offended by that one too. 😛

From the pamphlet: Daily Word

~I may become distracted by turmoil in my life, forgetting the bigger picture and the gift of Divine Love. God’s love and grace are present in my life even when I’m not paying attention.

I know God’s will for me is only good. So, I take charge of my thinking and I ask myself … what if everything goes right? I anticipate the blessing and then let go and let God.

I let go of worry and let God work in and through all people and circumstances to lead the way. I free my heart of any feelings of unworthiness and claim my inheritance of Divine support and supply. I believe in God’s limitless abundance, and I am ready to receive it. With a calm and peaceful heart, I affirm my faith in God and receive my good.

God’s powerful and constant love supports my growth and unfolding. I acknowledge the many ways grace demonstrates in my life, and I am grateful. ~
