Letting Go of the Trauma Drama and Embracing Joy
My mom is here for Thanksgiving and my birthday – woohoo! Plus my nephew Charlie is here as well, interviewing for medical school. My son is on his way home tomorrow, and Carlos and I are so grateful to have such a wonderful group here for the weekend. There is nothing quite like having my family around me.
My mom just sent me an email in which the following was embedded. I though it worth passing on to all of you. Enjoy!
There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good, love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life. Getting back up is living.
“Today may there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love. It is there for each and every one of us.”
