Hi everyone! I’ve missed writing for the last several days, but I’ve been having such a good time on a mini-vacation that I trust you’ll forgive me.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my future. It feels like I’m entering a new chapter both personally and professionally. Doors are opening that I never saw coming.
With that comes both excitement and fear. As I explore what is possible, I keep bumping up against my own old beliefs of what is impossible. For instance, I’ve always imagined myself as a successful teacher/writer/speaker at some point in the hazy future, but when it came to actually accepting the possibility that I could be those things today… in reality… I balked. “I’m not worthy,” I would say to myself. “I haven’t worked hard enough. Who am I to be those things?” I said it so often that I hypnotized myself into those beliefs.
As I look into the future and see that this really is a possibility, that old voice keeps popping up. And I have to keep reminding myself that the old voice is exactly that – OLD. There is a new paradigm now, and I’m living it.
Today, while in the midst of one of these bouts of craziness about what I am and am not worthy of having in my life, I picked up my copy of Love Without Conditions by Paul Ferrini and flipped it open to a random page. This line immediately caught my eye:
“Let go of the limits you place on what is possible.”
Wow. What a perfectly placed reminder.
Tonight I make it my goal to open to a new belief. A belief in something greater than I can even imagine right now. Because the very fact that God put me on this earth in this body means that I am worthy. And perhaps – just perhaps – someone or something Greater Than Me knows more about my future than I do. Who am I to limit the way that the Universe moves in my life? Who am I to tell God that I will not accept all of the goodness that the Universe has to provide?
Tonight I let go of the limits I place on what is possible. I choose to believe in the possibility of things greater than my imagination can even conceive of.
Tomorrow will take care of itself.
