My husband and I are undergoing a shift in perception. It’s nice. Without getting into it too much because if I do it will just sound all silly and new agey, we are focusing our energy on what we want instead of what we don’t want.
I feel like I understand this concept and it has been proven to me time and time again that the Universe is abundant, but I forget and need to be reminded. When I am living with this understanding, I feel rich and like anything is possible.
No one “out there” is trying to keep me from having what I want. Usually, I am the one that puts up barriers. I tell myself I can’t do something because I am too young or too old or too fat or too thin. It’s all BS.
It is amazing that every time I get out of my own way, wonderful things happen.
Yesterday, I started reading Little Bee by Chris Cleave. Even if I do not end up liking the book, it will have been worth it just to read this passage…
“On the girl’s brown legs there were many small scars. I was thinking, Do those scars cover the whole of you, like the stars and the moon on your dress? I thought that would be pretty too, and I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? this will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived.”
Just typing it out got me teary. I’ve always had an affinity for scars.
