I start my day with a Postcard from Gusto and it always seems to relate to how I am feeling at the time! Even when I go through moments of feeling stressed out I still think Life is Beautiful. The postcard below reminded me that when things are out of my control I need to Breath, Relax and Trust!
My day starts with a ‘Note from the Universe‘ a ‘Postcard from Gusto‘, a message from ‘Abraham‘, a soft toe touch from my daughter who is usually lying next to me, and then around noon a smile and hug from my son. My day just keeps getting better from there! I choose to ((((((smile))))))
I am a true believer that you choose each day how you want to feel. You also chose your thoughts and as I am reminded by my Note from the Universe each morning…’thoughts become things choose the good ones’. I wanted to share this with you today…Love…
…and here is what was on the back of the Postcard from Gusto~
Sometimes you just need to just let go with both hands! You don’t need to turn your back and walk away, just loosen your grip and let it slip, whatever ‘it’ is. It might be a job that isn’t inspiring you, a new romance that can’t quite find its way, a relationship that doesn’t feel right anymore but you can’t put your finger on why, or an answer to a question that keeps eluding you. No matter what it is if you give it back to the Universe and surrender I guarantee you will feel free and untangled. Clear your mind and let go of any thoughts that relate to what you are questioning. Set them free. You can only do so much to make things happen in life. When you feel you have done all you can it’s time to just let go.
After you let go you can look at what you set free with a clearer understanding. It will start to make more sense once you create some distance. Your mind can subconsciously process what it needs to without all the internal dialog interrupting constantly. It’s the same as when you can’t remember a name so you put it out of your mind and when you least expect it the name comes rushing back making you blurt it out loud. Have some faith in the magic of the Universes power. Sometimes things happen for reasons unclear to us. We need time to see why we didn’t walk down the path we thought was ours.
Trust your instincts! Do what feels right for you. You might be questioned from those standing on the side lines but again loosen your grip and let them slip! No one knows what’s best for you better than YOU! Staying true to yourself is all that matters in the end.
We get influenced by our fear of not having or doing what others perceive is right for us. We fear losing what we ‘had’ more than we have the insight to see what is ahead. ‘What-ifs‘ start to drift through our thoughts like the boogie man whispering…“careful there may not be another.” Don’t listen! What ever you let go of there will always be another ready to take its place whether it be a job, romance, sailboat, car, motorcycle, airplane ect. However, there is not another you so make you happy and all else will follow. In the end it either wasn’t meant to be or what you let go of will find its way back to you when the time is right.
There is always another romantic notion to ponder, job to explore, relationship to build or any other idea you let go of. When you have the courage to let go of something that doesn’t make you feel good or true to yourself, you are empowered by your action.
Just let go…and be ~
P.S..as you all know I receive Postcards from Gusto. I couldn’t NOT share this mornings with you…funny right? Check it out! Timing is truly everything ~
You Exactly Where You Are In The Perfect Place At The Perfect Time
And it came from:
The Passionate, Ridiculously Wise, Unflappably Optimistic Part of You That’s Brimming Over With a Zest For Life And The Adventure That It Is (In other words my “Gusto” – or “enthusiasm, delight, relish, zest, spirit, fervor”)
Well that’s interesting. That’s the part of me that I’d like to hear from more often! This would be the part of me that I don’t hear from enough.
I’ve been receiving a daily inspiring postcard from “The Passionate, Ridiculously Wise”…I’ll just shorten that to “Gusto” from here on, part of myself since Aug 5th. The virtual postcards arrive by email to me everyday except on weekends (even your Gusto needs a holiday from work!). I have to say it is delightful reading. They are not long; beat you over the head with positive words kind of messages, just simple, to the point and quite inspiring. It is a lovely way to start my day!
I had planned on sharing a few of the charming messages that I have received so far by going back to past emails but “doh!” the email is always the same and says:
You have a new POSTCARD FROM GUSTO: www.postcardsfromgusto.com
Of course when you click on the link even from past emails it goes to the new postcard of the day. The older ones are gone forever. This has me vowing to read them slower so I might savor each one for longer in the future.
Every new postcard has a wonderful picture on the front that just seems to add a little something special to the words.
I highly recommend going to postcards from gusto and signing up for your daily message from the …unflappably optimistic part of You.
