Just getting started

Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten.

— Natasha Bedingfield

The theme I have for you this month is “Just getting started” — and beautiful someone, we SO are, in every way.

So what if today is the day the everything changes for you? What if today you realize that you are braver than you know, stronger than you think, and more valuable than you’ve ever let yourself believe?

Because nothing in Braving It is out of reach for us. It may seem that way because our brave has been hiding behind years of conditioning and tons of clutter that we’re having trouble reaching around. But once we clear out the bad memories, unhealthy relationships, preconceived ideas of what and who we should be and are capable of…we can fill that space instead with honest, courageous choices.

As songwriter Natasha Bedingfield sings in Unwritten,

No one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten.

There is hope and possibility in our bravery. A courageous life is something we owe ourselves, and in a very real way, the world.

Don’t deprive it of your beauty, creativity, honest reactions, and full heart.

Here is my wish for you…

…that you know, not just believe, but know in your bones that you are talented, worthy, strong, and one-of-a-kind.

And most of all that you are a work in progress, with the courage to create your life, your way.
