An Open Letter

Hi, it’s me again.

To go forward, you have to know where you have been. We all need our own narrative. Maybe you feel misled. Sometimes your story is filled with broken pieces, terrible choices and ugly truths. I would like to be a fearless soul and stop limiting beliefs I project on myself. 

The one thing that drives us and keeps us going is resilience. If nothing else, we have strength and endurance. What matters is you have the power to try. Ultimately, it is our thoughts that hurt us the most.

Here is what I know. Happiness cannot be traveled to or owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is a spiritual experience of living every moment with love, grace and gratitude. And then it happens. One day you wake up. You are in this place where everything feels right. Your heart is calm. Your soul is on fire. Your thoughts are positive. Your vision is clear. Finally, you are at peace with where you have been, at peace with what you have been through and at peace with where you are heading.

This journey called life is an exciting quest. By denying yourself the plethora of emotions and feelings, we as mere mortals forget that happiness is a feeling too. 

Life itself is a beautiful mystery. Stay excited and surprised. Enjoy every moment. You do not need to know what unfolds next. Perhaps this is what keeps us open to the great mystery of life.

Remember to keep the circle positive, peaceful and loving. ©

Written with love.
