This weekend I was going through some old cards and pictures. I have an obsession with greeting cards and like to save them. These were sitting right in front of me on an old bulletin board, but I hadn’t taken a close look at them in quite a while. As I looked at the pictures and the cards they reminded me of the marvelous journey I have been on and how far I have come. It is also a reminder of how important it is to be mindful of the intuition that guides us.
I see a picture of an airplane, which I once was fearful of, but that has become a gateway to new experiences at least five times a year! I see a picture of my husband — who is African-American — and it reminds how challenging that relationship once was. I also delighted by the knowledge of how well things have turned out for us! I have always needed someone to stand up for me, but now I stand up for myself! Learning how to love and be loved has given me strength that has brought me abundance. Wow, am I grateful! I look at my older daughter and see how much she is like me. I am so proud of her and hope one day, like me, she will have business to run. We are all destined for greatness, if we just put in the work and are receptive to the path the universe prepares for us. I also see a bumper sticker I saved that says, “Well-behaved women seldom make history.” I am clearly well prepared for making history!
I am in love with focusing my energy by keeping reminders of what I have done, and do, every day. I now realize that I have always had everything I needed to succeed in life. I just didn’t know it. Being aware of that will help you focus on what is important in your journey through the universe and in achieving the success you deserve. J
