Happy Birthday To Me

Today is my birthday and what a wonderful one it has been so far. All of the things I have been thankful for have just been reinforced tenfold. I have been so blessed with well wishes and love. I am completely astounded by the friendships in my life. (Love you friends!) The greatest gift I have received this year is knowing without a doubt that I am known. I am heard. I am loved.

This is the first birthday that I can recall actually feeling older. I know it’s all in my head, but I feel like I’m standing on the edge of a precipice to something great. Right now everything that I want is possible with just a little bit of help from the Universe. I can do this, I can be great, I can be a shining light.

I’m sure I made a New Years Resolution at the beginning of the year, but if I did, I don’t remember it. I want to remember the resolution I’m going to make right now. I am going to be my authentic self and I am going to listen to my inner voice/spirit guides/the Divine and I need to stop, be silent, and listen.

Happy birthday to me!

The lessons that this last month has been trying to teach me is to let go and have faith. Stop resisting the good things in life, they will come to you if you are open to them. I can’t tell you how many times situations have popped up in the last few weeks to demonstrate just that point. I can honestly say that I am learning. I’m quite amazed by how much I am learning.

I guess I’m finally ready. It has taken me twenty-six years to embrace it. I no longer approach any situation in anger, I refuse to hold grudges, and I have love and compassion for everyone. I don’t worry about the future, that will sort itself out, it’s what I am feeling and experiencing right now that counts. What happens in the unknown future will not make me happy now. So right here, in this moment. I am happy.

I am spending the rest of my birthday relaxing in a hot, lavender scented bath, braiding my hair, and sitting at my altar just being.
