Expecting a Beautiful Life is My Birthright

Just to put you all on notice, I’m expecting an amazing year.

For years, I’ve said, “Watch out.  When I turn 55 my world is going to explode (in a good way.)”

And today, I turn 55.

For years I’ve been setting myself up for a rip-roaring year and I believe that outrageously wonderful things are ahead for me!

No, I’m not “psyching” myself up.

I’m just AM up.

There’s a real reason why I can so boldly say that 55 is going to be one for the record books.

I believe that my world is surrounded by well-being, underpinned by love, and fueled by a Divine love that is FOR me.

And you are too, by the way (but we’re talking about me right now.  ‘Cause it’s my birthday.)

I believe that any and everything I ever wanted shows up like a series of birthday presents, because God/Source is not stingy. There’s plenty of blessings to go around for everyone, and when you are loved unconditionally, you get rescued when you fall.

God breaks the fall every time.  I count on it.

Further, like a magnet, everything good is coming my way and even if things appear to be “off” they ultimately work out for my good.

I love how bold this is!  It’s invigorating to bask in a good feeling and to choose to live EVERY day expecting great stuff.

Now, you might be reading this and feel truly annoyed.

What about all the BAD stuff, Brenda?

Annoyed people, my head is not in the sand. 

But really, when did focusing on the bad ever help anyone?

C’mon!  You know my story!  We could mention all the low-lights here, but when I look over my shoulder, they all led me RIGHT HERE.  To this amazing point of happiness in my life.

And I’m not turning back.

Nor am I looking back, ’cause that’s not where I’m headed.

And I wrote and felt all of this BEFORE I picked the new WOW, which I also selected intending it to be my word of the YEAR. And even though all of the words that preceded this video were about my approach to life, I so hope the same for you.

That would be the best birthday present of all.  For all of you lovely people to fall madly in love with yourselves, to boldly believe that you deserve good, and by expecting it, to attract so much good stuff that you feel like you’re living in heaven on earth.

That’s what I’m going to wish for when I blow out the candles later today.

In the meantime:

Oh yes – now THAT’s a word I can sink my heart into this year.

Have a beautiful week, everyone.

You make my heart happy.

Amazing Grace (and the New WOW)

I didn’t have a clue just how much GRACE I would need this past week.

It was perhaps the most profound week of my life; so profound I can’t talk about it with you yet.

But here’s what I know – and I will be brief:

Grace IS amazing.

It is the remarkable calm when, for all intents and purposes, you should be freaking out.

It’s moving in skills and having wisdom beyond yourself because you NEED to – and there it is, like manna from heaven.

Grace supersizes life; it takes what YOU can do and multiplies it.

Grace swoops around you just when you are feeling faint and provides reinforcements.

It provides the peace that passes understanding.

For those of you who may know what is going on in my life right now, thank you for not using this forum to comment on it.

It’s too fresh, too private and the dust has not settled.

I considered discontinuing my posts for a while during this time of personal disruption, but it didn’t feel right to do so.

So this video was recorded before the volcano of my life erupted, but the words are eerily prophetic…again, a sign of grace.

And this of course comes to mind:

And that’s how you know you must take that risk.

Make sure there is water in the pool before you leap.  But if you take the step, and walk with God, you will be amazed to see how the waters part.

Much love to you all (and still and always, extra doses of grace.)
