99 Ways 2016 Rocked It

We know appreciation is one of the best manifesting “processes” out there.

It moves dreams out of future tense and into present reality.

So when I read this post on 99 Reasons Why 2016 Was a Good Year, I was inspired to revel in those good vibes even more by making my own list.

Recalling the ways this year has delighted and satisfied us is also a great setup for launching a new year.

Just reading this post will likely give you a vibration boost, too, but I’d recommend creating your own list of things you’re celebrating about your 2016. 🙂

So with that, here’s my list of 99 ways 2016 showed me the love. I’d love to read yours, too!

I Said Yes to My Dream Home

  1. The dogs and cats and I moved closer to nature! That was one of my “someday” dreams that conspired to show up sooner rather than later. We love it here!
  2. I have my own place again! While live-in lovers are nice and splitting the rent is an added bonus, I thrive in my own space.
  3. This place is triple the square footage and nearly 20 times the yard space the dogs grew up in. It’s a lot of what I imagined heaven would be for dogs.
  4. We share space with wildlife, including foxes, deer and moose!
  5. The neighbors have horses! Beautiful, playful horses!
  6. Night actually feels like night – it gets dark here and super quiet. No sirens, no city noise, no light pollution.
  7. The stars are amazing! It’s so stunningly gorgeous that even a trip to the garbage can at night takes a few minute because of the awesome stargazing!
  8. It sort of feels like the moon is my new best friend. We have such a different relationship out here in the boonies! I understand better how ancient cultures came to revere the stars and sun and moon. I’m doing it, too!
  9. We can go on off leash walks right from our back door. The neighboring properties aren’t developed, so we have even more free space to wander at our leisure.
  10. There is an array of diverse hiking trails nearby. We’re still exploring!
  11. Every window in the house offers jaw-dropping mountain views. Even washing hands at the sink offers a chance to revel in the beautiful landscape.
  12. My office feels like the office of a very wealthy person. Imagine what that’s doing for my vibration!
  13. There’s a stream of water here the dogs love taking an afternoon dip in. Fortunately, I like the smell of wet dogs. 🙂
  14. The new master bedroom has tons of room for three dog beds, two cat scratch towers, and two big chairs for kitties to lounge on. This room alone feels like paradise!
  15. I manifested the nicest and the coolest neighbors on the planet. They’re amazing!
  16. Hello, I harvested vegetables from the garden. I learned how to cook squash! And LOVED it!!
  17. I pulled up t-posts out of the ground with my bare hands using nothing but brute strength. I feel like I can do anything after doing that!
  18. I am shoveling so much snow out here that I stopped using exercise equipment in the house. I am getting super fit without really trying.
  19. I got a farmer’s tan. From working on the property. I cannot tell you how much I love my life!!

I Loved Up On the Animals

  1. We fostered many kittens and several adult cats this year. I say “we” because it takes a village, where the dogs and other cats help teach newcomers the ropes, and friends and family are called in to help socialize the new crew. It’s still one of my greatest joys in life to volunteer as an animal foster mom.
  2. Two of our foster kittens from the year prior were returned when their adoptive mom got engaged, and are with us again now. (Her loss, our gain!) Xena Princess Warrior and Fairy Kitty Lexie have grown into such beautiful and entertaining cats!
  3. I helped transport a handful of dogs to their new homes across the country. It’s a fun way to make new friends – human and canine!
  4. The neighbors at my last place got brand new baby goats in the spring! Such a treat to watch them play and grow up!
  5. In fact, on two different occasions I got to climb the fence for a goat rescue when someone’s head got stuck in the fence. I’d been dreaming about climbing over for a closer hello for quite some time when Universe delivered compelling reasons to do so!
  6. We’re reveling in bonus time with Joe, after the vet said to expect just 6 more months. (18 and counting!) Luckily, we know how to defy expectations. Here’s to more quality time together!
  7. Many of the dogs in our new hood roam freely, so we get spontaneous play dates and dinner dates throughout the week. These dogs are a hoot – super friendly and fun – I’ve never met such happy and personable dogs!
  8. We had a moose in our backyard just the other day. It was exciting and exhilarating and amazing! I am officially not a city girl any more!
  9. Sadie got sprayed by a skunk our second week here, and it felt like the perfect way to give up our urban roots and embrace country life. Everyone survived.
  10. Feeding new birds here that I’ve never seen before. Still learning who they are!
  11. It’s not unusual to see bald eagles on my commute to town. Bald eagles, I tell you! This place is even better than I dreamed. 🙂

I Loved More People In More Ways

  1. Allowed a key relationship that had become a toleration to transform itself. It had been asking for that for a while, but I ignored it because of my resistance to change. I learned that change is good and resistance is futile. And now have a new appreciation for my latest ex-beau. I should have known this would of course have a happy ending, since that’s how everything seems to turn out.
  2. My mom showed up in so many ways to love and support me through the changes the year brought. She helped me turn a new house into a home and was the #1 reason I never felt alone or overwhelmed through the major transitions of the year.
  3. Who knew how much I’d be relying on dad’s help this year, too!  Whenever it looked like there was a problem in the works, dad stepped in to solve it. In fact, he resolved issues before they became issues. Every time I thought I couldn’t ask any more, he showed up to remind me help is always here and love never runs out.
  4. My aunts. Well, now I’m starting to well up as I think about all the ways extended family showed me the love. With advice and encouragement, actual moving and cleaning, and getting settled into a new place and making it my own. Ok, I’m trying not to cry, so moving on …
  5. I know I mentioned new neighbors already, but they deserve to be on this section of the list, too. I’d heard about how friendly country people were, but I honestly had no idea it could be this good!
  6. Speaking of love, I started dating again. woo hoo! I am a girl who thrives when single and I am making the absolute most of this time of life. Men are amazing! I could make a list of 99 things I love about dating! But I’ll spare you my raves and just say I am having the time of my life.
  7. I even love my post office people, my grocery store people, my UPS guy, my real estate agent. It feels like I fell into the love vortex!
  8. I went through master gardener training and hung out with fellow gardeners! So much appreciation for meeting MY PEOPLE! I love gardeners. And I love our instructors. They were the highlight of my year!
  9. Stone people. Have you heard of them? I always knew there was something special about crystals, but this year I learned that they’re also known as The Stone People and I made some new stone friends. 🙂
  10. I met fab new folks at the local animal rescue group I’ll be working with next kitten season. I do love gardeners, but animal people are my lifelong peeps. We get each other.
  11. But there is nowhere I feel more love and appreciation than when I hang with fellow creators, because we are not a dime a dozen. (Yet. One day we will be!) For now, though, connecting with conscious creators on GVU calls and in the forums is a treasured experience and where I feel most myself. I love you guys!
  12. I need a separate entry to celebrate the wonderful clients I worked with this year. You know who you are. THANK YOU for being the best parts of my life!

I Loved My Body Even More

  1. Through the process of moving I reminded myself how physically strong I am. Way to feel capable and empowered!
  2. I had energy I didn’t know existed! Physical endurance was mine! Plus I had a new spring in my step I hadn’t felt in some time.
  3. Sleeping solidly through the nights again. 🙂
  4. Adrenal fatigue symptoms abated. I feel good in my body again!
  5. I have some suspicions about how this happened (I got happy!) … but whatever the cause, I dropped a couple sizes. When I wasn’t even trying to. Funny how that works, huh? I wear a belt on size 6 jeans. It’s ridiculous. (I had fourteens in my closet at one point.)
  6. I finally like my hair. That hasn’t  been a toleration for so much of my life, that I can’t tell you how nice it is to actually appreciate it.
  7. In addition to yoga as a way of loving up on my body, I found the 5 Tibetan rites. Very cool!
  8. This isn’t completely new, I had learned this trick a while ago, but I’m better at it now than ever (practice makes perfect): I love how I look in the mirror. 🙂
  9. Treated myself to some new clothes, which is yet another way to enjoy this beautiful body.
  10. I’m listening to her better than ever – when she says yay or nay, I honor it without question. Well, almost. Getting better at it every day!
  11. Learned how to take even more joy from food and drink – truly one of life’s daily pleasures this year.
  12. We (my body and I) also relished in the joys of nothing this year. We learned how to do nothing like it was something. We lounge, we loiter, we linger, we pause, we revel. It’s not go-go-go until we drop. We nap, we stretch out, we get wrinkly fingers in the tub … we enjoy for no reason at all.

Business Got Even Better

  1. This celebration list is taking forever to write, so I’ll speed things up: fab new clients
  2. fab long term and returning clients. I just can’t say enough how much I love the people I work with!
  3. super cool colleagues (The Coaches League is one of my favorite parties of the year!)
  4. launched a new podcast
  5. clients are rocking it (their successes deserve to be compiled in a book!)
  6. interviews with cool new people
  7. less work
  8. fab money
  9. GVU went mobile
  10. this blog gets more traffic and more raves than ever
  11. you readers are as generous and wise as ever! your comments are still the best part of this blog!

  6. read fabulous books

    • Jeannette says:

      omgosh, your fiddling and bluegrass festivals are giving me some inspiration for what I’d love to see on my 2017 appreciation list! (Not that I learn how to play, but to be hearing it live would be such a treat!)
      And I’m with you on #90. Very cool item to include on your list. Loved where GVU made it and I’ll be smiling about your #98 all night.
      Thanks for sharing, Anonymous! 🙂

  • Maryann says:

    You guys rock! I am going to try this but my guess is I will not come up with 99 items. How did you do that? I admire you!
    I have a lot to be thankful for but I am not sure if I can come up with 99…wow!

    • Jeannette says:

      Maryann, I believe if we had a conversation about it you could come up with 99 things you loved just about THIS DAY.
      It did take a couple of sit downs for me to finish my list, though. So worth it for the joy I get each time I re-read it! 🙂

  • Harriette says:

    Love this idea!! Shall do it now! PS, Jeanette, you rock! Hxxx

  • Alora says:

    Jeannette…. #77….. you saw Sasquatch?
    What a great way to celebrate 2016 and make way for 2017! Thanks for the idea!

  • Sandra says:

    As a way to pre-pave an awesome 2017, I’m going to create a similar list, put it away until 1/1/2018. I’ll then read it and be amazed how all 99 items came to be! 😊👍🏾

  • Leslie says:

    Jeannette, thank you for the inspiration!

    47. Plus, I’ve learned that every penny I spend comes back to me doubled! How darn cool is that?

    59. I love that I now believe anything is possible.
    60. I love that I have a great plumber. He’s amazing.
    61. This year, I learned that I can hear the trees talking. Most of the time they don’t say much, but when they do it’s important.
    62. I’ve made some pretty good Pelican friends recently.
    63. I watched a lunar eclipse on the causeway bridge that goes over the marsh. Incredible, beautiful and very awe-inspiring
    64. I love that Ms. Possum comes to eat every evening. And the kitties just hang out with her.

    67. I saw dolphins playing a least a dozen times.
    68. I found not one, but two bathing suits that I like.

    71. I love that I found an absolutely perfect birthday gift for the one hard-to-buy-for friend this year.

    73. I love that my pirate friend shot her real, antique gun during the interview. (No bullets, just powder, but so cool). And the photographer caught the fire coming out of the barrel. Awesome shot.
    74. I love that I was invited to go on a boat this summer with friends and we went to an uninhabited island where we saw alligators! And, I found a few perfect, uninhabited whelks to take home and put on my altar.
    75. I love that I love summer now just as much as I did as a child.
    76. I also love that I’m learning to appreciate the cooler months. The sunrises are spectacular when the air is clear and cold.
    77. I love that my home was barely touched by Hurricane Matthew.
    78. I also love that all the cleanup gave me a wonderful chance to use my body. It felt so good to work. I’m a powerful woman.
    79. I love that I feel good giving a decent piece of money to the people who stand with signs on the road. It makes me feel happy to help and it’s coming back to me doubled anyway.
    80. I love that I’ve read some great books this year.
    81. I love how easily things come to me. Case in point: One of my kitties, Ruby, she’s always the one, attacked and killed my television. I was telling a friend and she said, “oh don’t worry, my husband can order you one wholesale.” He did and I got another one very quickly.
    82. I love being a Reiki Master, I think I said that one, but the energy is so much more powerful now! I can share Reiki with just a thought! (Thank you Ming!)
    83. I love how much more easily I forgive. I do get angry, but it passes so much more quickly and I’m better able to see both sides of any situation.
    84. I love my lunch hour walks. They’re perfect for this time of year; the weather is cool and I get to enjoy a little daylight. Plus, my walks are in Murrells Inlet, a beautiful fishing village. I see my Pelican friends, plus lots of other animals and a lot of nice people.
    85.I love that my curious nature has grown even more this year! I’ve learned so many new things, just from asking questions!
    86. I also love that I’ve learned to not give myself a hard time when I can’t exercise for a couple of days — I love that about me.
    87. This year I’ve learned to ask, “how can this be easier?” It’s an amazing question that MAKES THINGS EASIER!
    88. I love that this year I’m excited about the new year! I can see how great it’s going to be and the changes it will bring are going to benefit me in ways I can not yet imagine!
    89. I love that I appreciate my desk in my office much more now — I have windows that allow me to see the sky!
    90. I love that my foster dog, Pongo is back for a few months while his family finds a new, big dog friendly home.
    91. I love that I know people who will do most anything for their pets — they are family.
    92. I love that I’m actually looking forward to the office Christmas party this year. It’s the first time in 11 years that I’ve actually wanted to go! Yay me!
    93. I love that I don’t have any plans for Christmas Eve and I’m okay with that!
    94. I love that I get to see Pongo and the kitties have fun together. He’s such a huge dog (100 pounds), but is so very gentle with them.
    95. I love that I figured out a way to have a Christmas tree that’s not too hard on the kitties or me. Thank you Bitter Yuck spray.
    96. I love how much I’ve grown spiritually this year. There have been many epiphanies, many downloads and a lot of joyous exploration.
    97. I also love how I’ve learned to trust. Everything really always works out for me. So cool huh?
    98. It’s so cool to make this list on the Winter Solstice. This is a good day for me anyway, I always breathe a sigh of relief, now we’re on the way back to more daylight!
    99. I also love that later today I’m going to start a new PRJ about how great the upcoming year is going to be!

    • Jeannette says:

      Reading this list makes me fall in even more love with you, Leslie. I am smiling from ear to ear at your celebration of 2016 – from Pongo to fairies to alligators and feeling your physical strength – so cool! Thank you so much for posting it!!! 🙂
      I’m going to read it again now, just because I like it so much. 🙂

      • Shan says:

        Wow, Jeannette – that is super-inspiring!! Thank you so much. And thanks tons for the inspiration throughout the year, since I ‘discovered’ you through listening to an audio you did for an organisation I get loads of stuff from and very rarely listen. I was totally drawn to listen to it, not even knowing the subject!!Joining GVU and ‘knowing’ you and the other magic manifestors here has really made a difference to my life. And there’s more——!! I’ll be making my list.

  • Amina says:

    Jeannette – from working with you last year and seeing what I accomplished in 2016 that I wrote as “dreams” last December. I think I am going to write my list of 99 reasons 2017 rocked (yup, as if it already happened) on my blog! Thanks for the fab idea… as always!

  • Wow I love this, I was just saying the other day that I think the magic number is 30, find 30 things to be grateful for and the feeling is there.
    I wonder how much better it gets when you list those 31-99 items, will have to try it to find out 🙂

    • Jeannette says:

      I’ve heard Abe say before that once you start stretching to come up with good things, then you’re activating the opposite of what you want. (So I can see how a list of 30 might be even more powerful to make.)
      But I found the thought of having a big long list to refer to SO satisfying that I kept at it. And the truth is, we could probably make a list of 999 things to celebrate over the past year if we really wanted to. 🙂

  • Namaste says:

    1. My second year back in So. Cal. and every single day I appreciate it.

    13. I manifested two bookshelves and finally all my books are out of boxes.
    14. Deliberate Receiving by Melody Fletcher answered some manifesting questions that I’d been wondering about forever.
    15. I started a manifesting mastermind and the people I attracted are truly world class.
    16. Marijuana was legalized in California and that paves the way for so many important changes in the future.
    17. Once again, my philosophy of finding the things I like about both Presidential candidates paid off.
    18. I finally made time to begin meeting new friends and once again I’m blessed incredible people in my life who are local.
    19. After 30 years of fighting with my intuition, I decided to stop resisting and follow the advice given no matter what. That’s what I’ve done and it’s so much more peaceful living this way.
    20. A friend showed me how counting breaths makes meditation so easy to do and I found I REALLY enjoy it.
    21. I realized that everyone who shows up in my experience, whether it looks like it or not, is actually helping me to get what I want. This is a profound realization that I’m constantly reminded of and makes a big difference in my life.
    22. I found tons of things to appreciate about my part-time day job like…
    23. I get paid to work out.
    24. I get paid to think about my research.
    25. I was able to test out a manifesting technique and turn my boss from someone I wasn’t a fan of into someone who I really enjoy seeing.
    26. I’ve continued to do the appreciation texts with my first wife everyday and it always brightens my day.
    27. My friend retired at 33 years old, with over six figures coming in from most passive income, and it felt good knowing that a seminar I suggested to her years ago played a part in her making this happen.
    28. I overcame some long term resistance that has been bothering me for decades.
    29. My friend Galina came to LA three times this year and we got to hang out.
    30. I helped a woman Galina introduced me to get interviewed on a show and I received a welcome thank you.
    31. A woman I grew up with was named CEO of her company. It feels so good to see people I grew up with becoming leaders in the world.
    32. I continued to do my bi-monthly accountability calls with a friend and twice this made a big difference in my life.
    33. I finally broke through the biggest piece of contrast that was always knocking me out of the vortex.

    35. I bought a magic wand =)
    36. I got to walk on the beach countless times.
    37. My boss treated me to lunch twice.
    38. I found a movie theater with the kind of stadium seating near my house that I love.
    39. A friend of mine found Jesus and attempted to remove me from her life because she felt my manifesting perspective was bad. Instead of being insulted, I acted with love and our friendship is now stronger than ever.

    41. I was given Amazon Prime for free the whole year.
    42. I figured out the name for the manifesting community I want to build and it stuck (it took me years to do this and to have a name that I’m certain of is a gigantic relief).
    43. I got schooled on why going general can be important and appreciate the lesson.
    44. I found a new lucid dreaming teacher (Charlie Morley) who I really resonate with.
    45. Charlie’s teachings helped me have more lucid dreams than I have ever had before.
    46. My intuition had me call an old friend who I was able to make a huge difference for her.
    47. I got to fly for the first time in a lucid dream!
    48. I got to see the power of not resisting over and over and over again. It’s incredible how not resisting causes miracles to happen right in front of my eyes.
    49. My father shared an article with me on why eating orange peels is a great preventive medicine. I’ve been throwing orange peels into my morning Nutri-Bullet shakes and loving it.
    50. I had a ton of people sign up for my website.
    51. Thanks to a friend, I was able to figure out a way to better organize my manifesting checklist and now it’s really a tool that I’m proud of.
    52. I enhanced my subjective reality living habits dramatically and I’m loving the results.
    53. I got a big confidence boost after joining a manifesting program created by a teacher I respect and realizing that I’m totally capable of doing everything he did. I’m finally ready to emerge as a teacher in my own right.
    54. I had a number of people tell me they appreciate my views on manifesting.
    55. A number of LOA teachers contacted me and requested that I review their products. Feel good to get those requests =)
    56. Thanks to virtual reality googles, I figured out a solid potential solution to the one major problem with subjective reality (people in front of my eyes aren’t actually real). I realized that it’s totally possible for two people to be in the same room, yet viewing two completely separate realities, just like two people can be wearing virtual reality googles and be experiencing two separate worlds.
    57. I added hundreds of amazing people to my online Facebook commmunity.
    58. I learned that insects are conscious and felt good about all the times I’ve caught and released them.
    59. Another bonus from meeting with people to create my new LA LOA mastermind came when I realized that I’d spent my entire life talking about how I am always arguing with my intuition. Talk about a blind spot! No wonder my experience with my intuition has been so challenging, I was telling a story all these years of what I do not want. I’ve stopped doing that and it feels like a world of weight is off my shoulders.
    60. I reorganized the bookshelf in my bedroom so it’s exactly how I want it.
    61. I got to take two trips to my hometown of Morro Bay this year and just relax.
    62. I decided I didn’t want to “be nice” and see a relative who came to town that I’m not a fan of so I didn’t. So freeing to just do what I want to do. I’m getting better at managing the nice guy thing.
    63. I enjoyed so many walking meditations through the neighborhood.
    64. After a number of attempts, I found a pizza place in Los Angeles that is solid.
    65. I decided to take a risk on meeting a new person who reached out to me and made a fun new friend.
    66. Thanks to Eckhart Tolle, I figured out how to prove to a person that ultimately they are awareness.
    67. Thanks for my free Amazon Prime, I was able to enjoy two shows that I wouldn’t have made time for otherwise.
    68. I appreciate that I had the money this year to make charity donations to two projects that I’m really proud to have supported.
    69. I’m feeling more sure of myself than I ever have before.
    70. Thanks to my LOA mastermind I uncovered some resistance I have around romantic relationships that I’d been trying to release for at least two years at the very first meeting. And released it a few days later.
    71. I happened upon a new explanation for what makes intuition possible (that we’ve actually lived these lives before) and it’s given me a lot to think about.
    72. A friend bought me a delicious mint tea.
    73. I got an endless number of amazing deals on the fruits and veggies I love so much at grocery store near where I love. I love that in all of LA this place happens to be 15 minutes from me.

    75. I was intuitively guided through two situations in an incredible way and I’m so blessed that my intuition is in my life.
    76. X-mas shopping this year was super easy and I’m excited about the gifts I’m giving.
    77. I have a favorite pair of beach sandals that are falling apart. I went back to the surf shop to buy another pair but they didn’t carry the brand anymore. The cashier was kind of enough to explain where I could get them even though he obviously wasn’t making a sale.
    78. I thought I’d lost a book I needed for my work and it turned out a person I know had found it and turned it in for me.

    80. Thanks to dropping all that weight from dropping sugar, I now fit into my favorite board shorts again.
    81. I finally got to eat on Sushi Row in the valley.
    82. My research led to a much better understanding of quantum physics and how it fits in with manifesting. Feels good to know more about that subject.
    83. I was able to let go of a number of domain names that I no longer needed and feels good to log into my GoDaddy account and see only domains I know I really want.
    84. My study of witchcraft helped me realize how much more is possible with manifesting than I had dared to attempt before.
    85. By donating some coaching time, I got to make a big difference in a new friend’s life.

    87. My mom gave me some feedback on a project I’m working on that really turned it around for me.
    88. I found a really good article that explained some key things about the Bible that I’m super glad to have run across.
    89. I quickly recovered from an injury by changing my focus and deciding it would be so.
    90. I was reminded a number of times this year that if my earlier years hadn’t been so challenging, I wouldn’t be as effective as I am today in making a difference for others.
    91. My diligent efforts towards my goals this year set me up to have the best year of my life in 2017!
    92. My intuition chimed in when I was coaching a friend and gave her some dead on advice that made no sense at the time but ultimately proved true. Love that!
    93. Jeannette posted a question I had on the GoodVibe blog that resulted in me getting an answer about manifesting beliefs that I’d been wondering about for a long time.
    94. It was a great year because I’m not only in California but in the United States too (so lucky to be here).
    95. I discovered how amazing wet/dry vacuum cleaners are for cleaning cars.
    96. I attracted Facebook requesting that I change my profile name to my given name Al. This resulted in me getting to combine my two FB profiles into one and has made my life a lot easier.
    97. I’m getting paid to do what I love.
    98. I’m now reminded of how great a year it was from doing this list.
    99. I got to explain polyamory to another person in my life and saw that make a difference for her.

    101. I finally joined GVU =)

      I cannot tell you how much I love that you shared your list, Namaste!! #5 and #6 – WOW! And then I was wowing again at #8! #64 made me laugh out loud and I totally know what you mean about #83. (I recently did the same!)
      And #84 is making me want to insist that you start sharing this knowledge with the rest of us. I hope you have plans for doing that! And I hope you tell all of us at GVU about it first when you do. 🙂
      Thanks for the smiles and good vibes, Namaste!

      • namaste says:

        I’ll be emerging from my “research cave” in 2017. I will make a point to get in touch and find out the best way to share the things I’ve learned. Thanks for the suggestion =)
