Today I’m going to believe that happiness is a choice – my choice. Instead of spending my energy trying to change my dear ones or arrange circumstances just “perfectly so,” I realize that I choose my inner experience, the lens I look through, and my happiness.
Today I’m going to believe that the divine is everywhere – even in the self-doubt, the unmet dreams, the habitual patterns of reacting, the parts of me that feel lousy, insecure, crappy, ashamed – especially those parts.
Today I’m going to believe that healing happens right here in this moment, arriving in this body, being present to the beating of my heart, and staying and softening…instead of analyzing, dissecting, asking why, blaming, being harsh.
Today I’m going to believe that this is perfect – this very moment – “good” or “bad” – it is here to awaken me, open my heart, and draw me closer to the divine.
Today I’m going to believe that the holy is right here – within me, around me, and treat everyone (myself included) with a gentle regard – slower kisses goodbye, kinder eyes, gentler words.
Today I’m going to believe that this messy, fleshy, human experience with all its brokenness and uncertainty is where Grace shows up.
Today I’m going to believe that opening my heart feels a lot better than closing myself off.
Today I’m going to believe in re-dos, do-overs, and beginning agains.
Today I’m going to believe that wherever I am, Love is also – alongside me, accompanying me, gently whispering prayers to my heart.
Blessings for a beautiful Monday,
