I’m snuggled in bed – Up way too early this morning!
Quiet nudges got me up for coffee, a pen and my journal.
Writing helps keep life real for me. Jumbled thoughts become clear, and it’s a meditation of sorts, allowing for Spirit/God to come through.
I am letting go – easier said than done! Truly though, consciously and mindfully, letting go of worry, mostly about my kids. What Mom doesn’t worry? What good does it do? (No good, what.so.ever.) They are big people now, living their own big people lives. I love them big – they love me big – so much gratitude in that.
Letting go of thinking I am “less than” … Still after all these years. I know I’m not alone in this. We women are too amazing to be less than anyone or anything. (What I’m telling myself – I’m also telling you …)
Be Confident. (My word for 2020) Own your gifts and talents. Stand tall. Be the leader. Be the Wise Woman. Be the Example. Be the Light. Be Excited! (Our brains don’t know the difference between fear and excitement – so I’m going to enjoy a lot of excitement in 2020). Act on Inspiration. Be Grateful. Be Vulnerable. (Yes, you are strong enough – I didn’t think I could be … and geepers, I’m sharing my journal with you.) Surround myself/yourself with creative, smart compassionate people who are smarter than I am/you are. Be still and listen … It is in the silence we are in the presence of Sprit/God and we are filled with everything we need for this moment.
The beautiful meditation beads are from my artist friend, Debby Hess. These 7 little beads are such a blessing. The medal says, “I am” … followed with a lava rock bead to apply my favorite essential oil, “Tranquility”, which adds to the experience. Following the beads … an Angel wing … of course! What a gift. If meditation beads resonate with your heart and Spirit, you can explore her delightful website HERE. We are going to do a Women’s Gathering in February, encouraging in Self Love and Nurturing for our Spiritual Well-Being – let me know if you’re interested and I’ll send you more details!
My Encouragement for You is Wisdom from Mel Robbins:
And so it is!
Here’s to our last day of 2019.
May the Blessings Be In 2020 … Peace and Love to You and Yours,
