letter to the universe
Today is my day of birth and I decided to do something a little different. I decided a letter to the universe was a good way to start this year off with a bang. This is sort of a weird thing for me to share as it feels very personal and I did not write under the guise of posting, but it somehow feels like this shell that I am trying to crawl out of, will benefit from doing so. Without further adieu, ma letter:
Dear Spirit Guides & Universal force,
I am writing to you on the first day of my 32nd year on earth. A classmate of mine was given an assignment to write to her God, Universe or her definition of higher source as a way to get out of her own way. I think this is a great idea as I have a tendency to get in my own way on far too many occasions. This being my birthday, I figured today would be a good day to draft this letter, so here it goes. I am so thankful for this year, the years before it and the years to come. However, I really want to focus on this year and what I am willing to take on to make this year a break though one. It is not my goal to come off demanding (this is a fear) I just want to make sure that I am clear about what I really want because I know I send a lot of mixed messages. So here it goes…
I am willing to take on a successful career as a health coach, esthetician and business owner. In my book, success equals being able to financially support myself, live comfortably, save money, give back to my business and the community. Success also means having a fulfilling work & life balance. I have time for myself, friends, family, house work, and clients. Success also means I am constantly interacting with people and truly making a positive difference in their life. I truly want to help other women discover their greatness and I know my ego needs to take a nap to let this process fully reach its potential, so success will also entail a break from the ego. Success also feels like a comfort in my skin that I know is just around the corner. This means being out of my head and in the world more. I am willing to trust myself more and let myself out of the shell I impose on far too many occasions. I am willing to let the light in me shine more. I know this is cheesy, but it is true. I know there is a spark in me that gets ignited when my noggin’ stops squawkin’. This spark brings the best part of me forward and I am willing to see so much more of it. I am also willing to stay in the present when my noggin’ threatens to take me to the past and the future. I am willing to take initiative in my life and not allow myself to be lead. I am willing to love my husband with an open heart and quite mind. I am willing to be an authentic and loving friend, sister and daughter. I am willing to be a mother. Yes, I said it. I am also very willing to nourish myself through food, exercise and play. Most of all, I am willing to be oh, so happy.
Universe, thank you for your time and for all of the gifts you have bestowed upon me. It is my with great pleasure that I am willing to live this one precious life with all that I have this year and many years to come. Here is to being 32 years old and loving every second of it.
I am now going to run my little heart out.
With oodles of gratitude and excitement,
One more thing, just in case you are taking close notes, Universe, I would really like this treadmill. I am fairly certain this guy will help me accomplish all of the above.
And with that, I am off.
