Last night I had a dream that it was National Start Over Day. (There is actually a day called this in January, I learned.) In the dream everytime something small would go "wrong" a little song would play and it would say "start over."
After a few start over incidences I realized it wasn't redoing what was happening but merely reminding me to rethink how I was looking at it or what I was focusing on. It was a reminder to create my reality.
This dream comes after a few days of struggling with some other people's actions recently. Normally I do a pretty good job of letting those things roll off but the last week I have struggled to let a few things go. People tell me it is the pregnancy hormones and that probably plays a role. Yet I am unwilling to just write it off as hormones and continue down a path that does not bring me joy and focuses on negativity, struggling with other's actions.
There will always be things that others do that I would not choose for myself and that I have the option to choose to not be around. Getting tangled in the frustration of it is only giving my power of choice away and lingering on judgements that are an unnecessary cloud on my life.
Today I am so grateful for this dream. I'm grateful for all those who have been supportive in trying to make me feel better. I am very grateful for the reminder that I am in charge of my reality, hormones or not, and I can choose to forgive this and let it go. I'm grateful for the fun little "start over" diddy that is still playing in my head. And I'm grateful to start over today with forgiveness for what was bothering me but also forgiveness for myself for taking my time in releasing it.
What are you holding on to that may be holding you back? How can you embrace your power to create your reality? How can you start over today?
May today bless us with a fresh perspective. May we find the ability to laugh off our challenges and embrace our personal power. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
