Below is a post from Facebook Friend: 12 Steps To Self Empowerment. When I read these words they truly touched me. I am not quite ready to write a letter like this myself, but I am getting close and once I am ready I will wrtie that letter with gratitude and love.
Dear Past Self & the Past Itself,
We need to speak and talk about the role you played. I’m grateful that you existed because you came to protect me at a time when I was afraid, unsure and without direction. Fear was my parent, keeping me safe, preventing me from hurting and from possible failure.
But I’ve grown up now, and I need to leave you. It’s not that I don’t appreciate you and the role that you played – in fact all I can feel at this present moment is love and gratitude for always putting me first to do what you thought was required.
Welcome to April. This is a special month for me because it is the month my daughter was born. It is also the month Giselle was born so now I have multiple reasons to be greatful for April. Here are my thoughts.
Blythe was born 15 years ago on April 3rd. I cannot believe my baby is 15. She is growing up so fast. I am so blessed to have her in my life.
We had a family party for her last night that was wonderful. Good conversation and good food. Blythe would add good presents and terrific cake to that list. Here is a picture of her cake, or at least a piece of her cake.
I don’t really know what to say about this except it is truly stunning. Captured by photographer Mark Gee, the video is one single real-time shot with no manipulation.

Well, this week’s thoughts are a day late. My biggest thought is that without going to my previous job, routine has gone out of the window. And I enjoy that. Here are my thoughts.
I have been having a wonderful time doing what I want when I want and not being tied down to time or any real routine. I know I went from one end of the spectrum to the other quickly but it has been great.
As I search for new opportunities I realize that right now I am living day to day, moment to moment, and it is glorious. I do have things on the calendar that I am aware of but they are not consuming me. I simply deal with them as they arrive.
Maybe this is the lesson I needed to learn and getting laid off was the teacher. This is a way of living I will continue even when new opportunities present themselves.
This has actually been a very relaxing and enjoyable week for me. Even though things have happened that would maybe make you think it should have been a terrible week, it truly wasn’t. Here are my thoughts for today.
Well, I did indeed get laid off from my job. They called me Sunday evening and told me. I was prepared for it but even still it was a bit scary and it did take a while for me to let the negative feelings flow through me.
I have tried not to make a big deal out of it. I am just accepting it and doing what I can to move on. I did email Giselle and I have to share what she replied with, because it is brilliant.
And Congratulations on getting laid off. Isn’t it great when those things we can’t stand in our lives just effortlessly fall away making room for more joyful abundant opportunities? It’ll all work out perfectly…
