A poignant thought

Dear Terrific Friends,

In the same day, we can get a BUNCH of messages that totally conflict each other. We can be told that something will make us ultra healthy, and then read something else that says the very same thing will make us very very sick. We can be told that THIS NEW THING is in style this season, and then find out that lots of other people are saying it is SO YESTERDAY.

Even more seriously, we get messages about who we are and what makes us valuable, about what we should be doing with our lives. The messages are conflicting so many times, and are confusing so many times, and are frustrating so many times, and make us feel small and yucky so many times. Sometimes we feel so confused that we are just paralyzed and instead of trying to choose from one of the millions of opinions, we just stop doing anything at all.

The only way to get to the truth is to listen to your heart, to pay very close attention to your gut. It is YOUR truth. And that does not mean it is the same truth for someone else's life. We all have a different journey. When something is right and true, it feels peaceful. Things that are right and true are not always the answers that we are hoping for. They are not always the easiest answers. But they  always bring us to a place of peace.

Please go where the peace is, beautiful friend -- always always always.
Be brave enough to choose the path that is best for YOU no matter what the "opinions" are.

You can do it.

This is YOUR LIFE, and you are responsible for your decisions. You are the one who has to live with them, work with them, and build a future with them. Make sure they are the right ones for YOU.

You are so loved.
xoxo Chelsea
