When I was a little girl, life wasn’t very happy. As I got older, the unhappiness wasn’t hidden anymore and I would get pitying looks from friends and adults alike. I would try to joke off that “you poor thing” expression by saying – very matter-of-fact – “It just means my life as a grown up is going to be AMAZING!” Each time I said those words, I wanted to believe them, but I just didn’t know how it could be true. Today, I have seen in every area of my life this manifestation come true. My life isn’t perfect and I’m certainly not perfect, but it is amazing!
I put it out there. I declared what I wanted. I didn’t know how it would happen, I wasn’t even sure if I believed it could happen. But there was a seed and I nourished that seed and hoped for a better day. That hope grew and opportunities began to sprout.
The first came at the most UNLIKELY of times and places. I was 18 years old, walking into the first day at my new job. As I saw all of the other new-hires, most of which were much older than me, I immediately thought I’d maybe “enhanced” my resume too much as I suddenly felt very out of place. But then two guys only a couple years older than me walked in. One smiled at me…I had no idea, but he was going to be the best thing that ever happened to me. One year later, I would know more surely than anything I’d ever known in my life that he was the man I was meant to marry and I did!
As the years have gone on, there are two things I’ve been constant with… Pushing the limits of what others say is reasonable or possible and being open to receiving blessings.
These two decisions, above all others, have lead to that “amazing” grownup life I use to claim.
We all deserve to be happy, to have joy and to feel uplifted and fulfilled, not because of who we are but because of who He is.
Whatever your faith or beliefs, every spiritual leader from the dawn of time has said it, ‘where your thoughts are, so will you be’.
I didn’t mean to learn this lesson so early, I didn’t realize the power it would have. I was just trying to stop the looks of pity, but now I know, unequivocally that thoughts have power.
You are powerful, what will you do with it?
