Cold Full Moon Gratitude 🌕

Hey, fun synchronicity I wanted to share this evening. All day today I was bombarded with signs and symbols of Aquarius ♒️ (my birth sign); I even had my exact birthdate show up on a couple of random receipts.

Later this evening, while at my favorite store, Goodwill, I found a very cool Aquarius coffee mug and immediately claimed dibsies. Got to the register and the price was $2.16 ✨; my birthday is February 16th.

Thank you more please ✌🏻

Big day of Gratitude

I don’t normally share much personal information, I prefer to share inspiration; but today is an extraordinary day! So here goes…

Thirteen years ago today, December 12, 2008, I was Emancipated! In the past, this ‘anniversary of sorts’, came and went without much notice or attention.

Today however, I am struck by the deep significance of that day; that moment. It was, as I’ve now come to realize, the first day of my new life.

🎶Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road 🎶***

As amazing as my new world was (and it was magnificent); filled with rainbows, unicorns, and butterflies; you know, all that happy bullshit. Bliss was mine! I had finally found the peace for which I had chased most of my life.

Well kinda; it was until it wasn’t. This newfound ‘bliss’ slowly faded back to the mundane. The amazing brilliance, boundless inspiration, and sparkling newness soon returned to a flat, grey, and tiresome daily existence (just like I always knew it would).

Change is hard, shit, life is hard; but so much more so when you fight against it; against yourself.

I personally fought the good fight, the long fight, the painfully exhausting battle to recapture that elusive ‘peaceful bliss’. I fought hard; until I didn’t anymore.

Turns out, deep within spontaneous surrender, the un-fight, I found not only peace, but something deeper; I realized contentment. I found where peace is generally fleeting and fragile; contentment, with compassion, patience, and simplicity grow a balanced, subtle, yet durable stability of contentment.

So today, I am filled with joy, love, respect, reverence, appreciation, gratitude and contentment for ME. Today I sing the song of myself. I AM FREE!

Namasté ✌🏻

***Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) ~ Green Day

Lyrics:
Fuck (mumbled in the intro)

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road

Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go

So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why

It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It’s something unpredictable
But in the end, it’s right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind

Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time

Tattoos of memories, and dead skin on trial

For what it’s worth, it was worth all the while

It’s something unpredictable
But in the end, it’s right
I hope you had the time of your life
