Yesterday was an especially good day. It wasn’t perfect, filled as it was with the usual frustrations of life (there to remind us to be grateful for the good stuff), but it was pretty darn wonderful. I got some incredibly good news about a project that I have been working on for several years, and had a terrific visit with a special friend who lives far away. She has been one of those angel friends who wisely knows how to bring joy into every situation, and has helped to prop me up through some really difficult times. How fun it was to have her here to celebrate with me!
Yesterday reminded me not to let go of my goals and dreams, not to get discouraged when it seems that I’ve run into a brick wall. It is so easy for me to jump to the conclusion that either I or my dreams are not good enough to be worthy and successful. Perhaps the time has come to let go of that nonsense and trust that things will always work out the way they are meant to, and, either way it doesn’t reflect on the viability of my hopes and dreams or my own worthiness. All I need to do is keep giving my all, and trust from that point forward. It’s so easy to look back with the vantage of time and see that things truly work out for the best…not so easy when we are swimming through it all in real time. The trick, I suppose, is staying focused on the goal, on the possibilities…and being flexible when life takes you in a different direction.
Another great thing happened with all of the good of yesterday- I felt excitement, creativity, and potential welling up about upcoming projects, the fresh ideas bubbling to the surface as if a dam had burst. I felt a renewal of spirit and enthusiasm….and all it took was something shifting to help me believe in myself again and let go of my death grip on fear. We are invincible if we just believe we are…I am working hard to remember that. All I know is that I’m going to ride this wave all the way in, leaving fear at the curb. I can’t wait to see what happens.
