Today is a very big day. It’s kind of like a birthday…and I feel compelled to explain.
Today, one of my dearest friends in the whole, wide world, is meeting her biological siblings for the very first time. This is such a great story…a “long-time-coming” story…yet, it’s hers to tell, not mine.
What I can tell you, is that she is courageous and brave, and I admire her strength. And this story isn’t even really about blood…it’s about relationships, and yearnings of the soul. It’s about people allowing good to come into their lives, when fears abound. It’s about letting go of old stories, and welcoming new ones. It’s about risk of exposure, and knowing that worth and value are gifts…not goals.
It’s about LOVE, people. Consideration. Compassion. Soul. Attitude. And I love this story so much, and am so proud of my friend,and am praying for this to be a beautiful experience for her. I know that no matter how it all goes, she will have infused laughter and love into the day. That’s just who she is.
Perhaps you also long for connection, or yearn for Grace and Peace …if only you could just “get over yourself”, and your labels. If only you could recognize that, no matter who you know, what you wear, where you work, how well you do things…YOU ARE A SOUL. A beautiful Soul, with a purpose ONLY YOU can accomplish. All your experiences, accolades, mistakes, awards, regrets….all rolled into YOU. If only you really believed that you are “learning, growing and becoming.” Because THEN….Then, you would be okay.
You, and I, are already okay, just as we are. It’s true. Learning how to live with that truth, and choosing to believe it takes a bit of work. This, is why I teach the Soul Restoration curriculum. It was SO valuable to my understanding of “being enough – as I am”, and SO worth sharing with you.
My closest family and friends can see through my anxiety, foibles and human imperfections, enough to understand my motives. I’m so fortunate to have those wonderful people around me in spirit, wherever they happen to live. Connection with like-minded souls is vital to my being.
Today, the good friend I mentioned above, may expand her “inner circle”. She has courage. She has “Soul-itude”. I am soooooo happy for her.
You, Soul, make choices about your attitude, too. Make them wisely, and lovingly, remembering that “Every day is Day One.”
Happy Birthday, Friends. Today is your day. Gather some people together, and celebrate.
