No one can make us happy, give us peace, or a sense of purpose. I had to change the way I thought of myself and look at where all those limiting thoughts started from. And my life now is more and more unicorns and rainbows.
Years ago, what I was opening to I kept private because it was so unusual for me that I assumed people would laugh or make fun of me in disbelief. I was just beginning to nurture a small seedling of my spirituality and I didn't want anyone stomping on it. So I kept my experiences to myself. Instead I concentrated on my new habits, new ideas and perspectives that would change my life and I pulled back from anyone who tends towards being sarcastic, dismissive or negative. It even took me a while to share some of it with the very man who is credited with changing my life to unicorns and rainbows. Of course he touches my life in many beautiful ways, he's just not responsible for me working my bum off to release my limiting beliefs and opening to something more beautiful.
Recently I read the local entertainment paper and saw the horoscopes. I rarely look at horoscopes but decide to read my husband's for fun. We laugh because it's so not him.
Then I start to read mine out loud and as I kept reading we both laughed at how surprisingly on target it was. I giggled so much that tears were streaming down my face. Thank you Universe, it's just what I needed.
The world will never fully know or appreciate the nature of your heroic journey. Even the people who love you the most will only ever understand a portion of your epic quest to become your best self. That's why it's important for you to be generous in giving yourself credit for all you have accomplished up until now and will accomplish in the future. Take time to marvel at the majesty and miracle of the life you have created for yourself. Celebrate the struggles you've weathered and the liberations you've initiated...
