Happy New Year! 🎉
It's great to be doing this life alongside you in 2024. 🙂
As I mentioned in my last letter, my word for the year is LOVE.
I've been diving deeper into the concept of love so that I can truly embody it, but the more I study it, the more I realize that it's beyond understanding.
After spending tens and tens of thousands of dollars on personal development to try to understand how life works, the more I realize I truly don't know anything.
Coming to the end of what we think we know is such a good place to be, because it means that we're ready to surrender.
We're ready to let things BE without trying to wrap our minds around them.
We're ready to allow life to flow without resisting it.
I don't know about you, but I tend to resist an awful lot of the experiences that life brings me- even the pleasant ones.
I'm constantly trying to fix and change things.
I'm always on the lookout for how to make my life better as if it's lacking in some way.
What if all of this struggling and striving is unnecessary?
What if we're only blocking life's blessings when we're trying to fix or control our lives?
What if your life and my life are perfect exactly as they are?
What if every moment is a beautiful gift no matter what is occurring?
Are you willing to trust that life has your back every moment of every day?
Are you willing to surrender your thoughts, feelings, and desires knowing that life has far more in store for you than you could ever want for yourself?
I'm learning to look at each experience that pops into my awareness and to say, "It's okay".
Whatever it is, I don't have to fight it.
Even if I'm feeling angry about a situation and resisting it, it's okay.
It's okay for me to feel what I'm feeling.
It's okay for life to be what it is.
I don't have to struggle and resist whatever is happening in the moment.
I don't have to try to change it.
I don't have to try to change my thoughts or my reactions in order to fix my life.
I can just let it all be okay.
In fact, we can take this one step farther and welcome each moment with "Thank you".
"Thank you, life, for the gift that this moment is!"
No matter if we like it or not, it's all happening for our highest good.
It's all a gift- every single thought, feeling, desire, or experience.
It's all okay.
Does this bring you a huge sense of peace to know that you can greet every experience with "It's okay" or "Thank you"?
You're not acknowledging that you LOVE every experience but simply that you're trusting that it's part of a bigger unfolding- a piece of the puzzle that your mind can't possibly comprehend.
No need to understand it in order to let it be okay.
If you're ready to experience a peace that surpasses all understanding with me, it's time for us to give up the fight and to surrender to what is.
It's time to say, "It's okay".
Much love to you,
