I took this photo in Asheville, NC on a recent trip there. I was in love with the gorgeous statue against the blue sky. But when I looked at my iPhone photo, I nearly wept. The ray of light is going right across his hands! He is reaching up and into the light. I felt like it was the biggest reminder for me to reach for the light that is always there, even when I can’t see it.
I recently had some bad business news- a loss of money I wasn’t expecting. I felt myself wanting to go into a pit and my head was swirling with stories and they were all dramatic and sad. But I remembered the Light. I live my life on purpose. I am aware of the signs. I want my work to make a difference in the world. I believe I am co-creating with the universe.
Maybe I could just take 5 deep breaths (like my friend Liz teaches.)
Maybe I could just trust that this bump in the road was indeed guiding me to something better.
Maybe I could breathe through it instead of freaking out and spinning stories.
Maybe I could ask for help from the angels that are always there, even when I can’t see them.
Maybe I could trust.
Maybe I could let go of what I can’t control.
And then I did something dramatic! Instead of fretting alone, I shared with a friend (who happened to call me right as I was feeling on the edge.) We made a plan. I played my favorite music. I made a chocolate smoothie. I danced with my dogs (they like music) and I decided to be happy anyway. Even though I was a bit afraid. Even though things were uncertain.
I offered my worries up to the universe, like the photo of the statue, and I felt peace.
I trust the light will catch it.
Just a reminder: If you have been interested in any of my stretched canvas prints or magnets, now is the time to buy because I am having a Spring Cleaning Sale through midnight tonight! I want to make room for new prints/magnets so all are now 30% off! No code needed.
With much love,
