Daily Motivator for Jan. 21 – Immense bounty

Immense bounty

Remind yourself right now, and often again, how good you have it. The more  you’re aware of how good you have it, the better it all gets.

You are capable beyond anything you have yet imagined. You have access to  resources you don’t yet even know are there.

The way to make better use of the immense bounty in your life is to more  fully appreciate it. Be amazed at how good you have it, and you’ll become even  more amazed at all the great things you can do.

All sorts of dangers, limitations, disappointments and shortcomings may  forcefully and dramatically demand your attention. Don’t neglect such problems,  but don’t make them the centerpiece of your awareness either.

Instead, see all the negative aspects of life from the larger perspective of  your positive possibilities. Know without a doubt how truly good you have it,  and you’ll naturally take every problem in stride.

Remember always how good you have it. And you’ll keep yourself always in a  position of great strength.

Wishing You A Very Blessed & Happy Thursday, dear ones!

Well here I go again, apologizing for running late. But this time I believe I have good news and you will like why I running late, lol! We are currently in the process of opening up our own store. Yes, you hear right, the WOTC is going to have its’ own online store. After several weeks of going through agreements and terms with providers, we have found a fabulous one. We are going to be able to give all of our FOLLOWERS super discounted prices!  Then, of course, to the general public, we will have coupons and other promotions for them. That once again, our FOLLOWERS can use with their already low prices! We are all super excited about this. Opening our own store has been a dream for a while and now it is coming true. Thank the Goddess!

The only bad thing about the deal is, I am the only graphic designer in the bunch. So I get to sit at the computers, get the eyestrain, backaches, and all those other nasty little things that happen to you when you are at the computer to long. But I don’t mind it a bit. You know why? Because I love all of you! This is going to be some incredible that we can offer you. So I don’t mind a bit, if I look like the hunchback of Notre Dame time this is over with, lol! (I hope not though :s)

We will be offering about anything you could want. Athames, staffs, cauldrons, herbs, hard to find herbs, Books of Shadows and much more. You are just going to have to check it out when we open it. And, of course, there will be a huge announcement when we do. So for the next week or two, please have some patience with me. Please!!! We are in the process of making one of our dreams come true and you are going to benefit from it. Remember though, to get the discounts and then use the coupons and promotions on top of you discount, you have to be a current FOLLOWER of the WOTC. So take a moment to press the follow button.

Anyway, I am going to run for now. I just wanted to apologize and share the good news with you. I hope you have a very blessed Thursday, my friends!
