“I don't trust people who don't love themselves and tell me, 'I love you.' ... There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.” ― Maya Angelou
Today’s blog is dedicated to my daughter on her 20th birthday. It is when you leave your teenage years that you start to really think about being an adult and doing adult things. There may be fear and apprehension. You may think that you are supposed to “act” a certain way. In fact, the opposite is true. And some of us go through our entire lives and never realize that we were faking it the entire time. We let others define what is important and how we should feel, what we should eat, drive, wear, etc. How we should look! Who we should be attracted to! Who we should vote for!
It’s all a lie.
Your true bliss comes from within. Inside there is quiet wisdom. Outside there is noise. Inside there is guidance and promptings, stirred by your intentions, dreams, goals, etc. Outside there is marketing and advertising telling you that the answer is outside of you. That happiness is only available at $100 an ounce. Only available in the fully loaded convertible in red. (As I’m writing this Ray Lamontagne is singing the verse, ‘The answer lies within.’) I kid you not. That’s what I’m talking about. The universe just dropped the mic. (Now I need a moment. That was really emotional).
Don’t ever lose your child like wonder. Protect your innocence. They will ensure that you always have fun, no matter the circumstances. Life is a playground. It’s your path. Go to what lights you up. Bring your enthusiasm and embrace it all.
Always keep love in your heart. Try not to judge others. Remember that everything is energy, vibrating at different frequencies. We can attract or repel, based on what we focus on. You are a magnet. What you attract is completely up to you. If you are not liking what is showing up, take some quiet time to explore what is happening on the inside. Start and end each day in reflection, prayer, meditation, etc. It will help you stay grounded and aware.
And remember to always use your power for good.
