Today I am grateful to let go. This is a practice I need to remind myself of often. My natural inclination is to take control and guide the ship by force if necessary. If we have a goal in mind, I will make sure we achieve it. So today I had a major breakthrough with letting go and trusting and allowing. All of this happened because I put myself back on track with taking care of my body in the way it needs to be cared for. I remembered the foundational work of taking care of the being in order to allow clarity. And sometimes that’s all we need. We need to get in touch with where the physical stuckness is in order to move through the mental stuckness to see what we really need. Today it was about physical movement and releasing all the things I felt.
Today I am grateful for family. We found out a bit ago that our niece is having another baby and today was the gender reveal. It was so nice to be together to celebrate and spend time together. We don’t do it much so it was nice to have such a special occasion together. The family is getting bigger and it really means a lot to see the generations together. Plus it is wonderful for my son to have the opportunity to spend time with his cousins and being a kid. These cousins are closer to his age so he acts differently, more himself. We are so fortunate to be able to be together.
Today I am grateful for signs. Breaking the validation habit is hard, but there is a wonderful thing about connection with the universe. Those signs bring a different type of validation. For me, when I see the sign I ask for from the universe, I feel the total connection with spirit. I feel the oneness with it all. Today as we were heading to the gender reveal, my husband and I talked about the transitions we are undertaking and every time we felt on target, I saw my sign. At this stage of the game, my husband and I are not turning back. There were a lot of events that brought us here so continuing to see that we are on the right track is a comfort.
Today I am grateful for synchronicity. As much as I speak about alignment and purpose, I often feel separated from my own purpose. I allow myself to get distracted and fearful and lose sight of what I’m doing the work for. As I mentioned above, there were a lot of events that aligned to get us where we are, events that make me realize I can’t deny the divine plan in all of that. As things continue to fall into place, I am continually amazed about the order of things. I know there is something so much bigger than me and, yes, I fight it at times, but in the back of my mind I know that all is well and I am where I need to be. I want to work on bringing that to the front of my mind all the time because there is a lot to be grateful for and things really do work in amazing ways.
Today I am grateful for leadership. I found myself in a funk recently with some old fear habits. I had been scheduled to speak with my mentor prior to that happening, so (in another show of synchronicity), as I felt some negative patterns emerge, I got on the phone with my mentor. She told me to keep working on myself and my mindset. She is the one who brought up the ability to see the big picture for other people but not for myself. She talked me off the ledge and reminded me that there is a bigger picture for me and that, even when it’s a little scary or bleak, we just have to keep moving forward. It was timely and exactly what I needed to hear. Sometimes we need someone to see us and remind us that we are really ok. Sometimes we need someone a bit further removed from ourselves to show us we are doing better than we think. It’s one foot in front of the other.
Today I am grateful for a plan moving forward. Between all the signs and synchronicities, and the advice of my mentor, I feel more stable in my plan moving forward. I know not everything goes to plan, that isn’t the point. The point is that this is a new direction to shift. This is a new way to move in that one degree turn every day toward what really works. Toward what feels right. Sometimes that perspective involves learning something new or it means trusting someone else’s guidance for a bit or even taking your hands off the wheel. But it all means having the right direction to move forward so you find the steps to take. I am grateful for the help to move forward.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.
