Sometimes we must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us….
In 2004 my husband Leland and I met for the first time in person after a short whirlwind Internet romance.
“I’d marry you tomorrow,” I said.
“I’d marry you tomorrow,” he said.
But there was a problem. We were both engaged to other people at the time. (On my side, it wasn’t official, but pretty much a given.) So…
We waited a year and a day so our families wouldn’t freak the heck out. Then we sealed the deal with a handfasting (Wiccan commitment ceremony) in 2005, and made it legal in 2006.
This week, we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary. And I have so much to be grateful for: a rich life with my soul partner, a successful business where I get paid richly for exactly what I was put on this earth to do (and believe me, Leland has EVERYTHING to do with that), money, rich experiences, and of course our beautiful little one.
The one thing I’m most grateful for might surprise you.
What I’m most grateful for is a quiet moment in a Barcelona airport, when I made the decision to “go THIS way instead of that way.”
To walk away from the old life of vicariously living my dreams through another person (my partner at the time) instead of claiming my Desires as my own. So that I could embrace a new reality –better than anything I could have imagined.
This is the power of a passionate decision.
Our squishyminds trick us into thinking that letting go has to be hard. But really, it’s the most liberating thing in the world.
Everything you Desire is on the other side of letting go. And the Divine always has your back. Always.
What decision are you holding back on that could change everything for you?
