Not too shabby a way to spend the Mother’s Day week before I start my new dream job as a writer/producer for CNN Politics’ site.
I’ve been musing a lot about the way life has been moving at light speed these days. It really feels as if once I stepped out on faith and took a chance that maybe, just maybe I could have the life I dreamed the Universe answered.
So often we hold ourselves back by listening to the chorus of negative voices (both internal and external) that tell us that we are somehow less than and unworthy. I believe that’s when it is most important to protect and nurture that little unique flicker of light within.
Once I began truly believing that I deserve joy that joy began to manifest in all aspects of my life.
Now that’s not to say things are perfect. This IVF may not work, we may not have another baby.
But the important thing is that in pursuing joy, in believing that deep down profound happiness is possible, I’ve moved closer to Zen.
