You can manage stressors

Our unconscious is very powerful, so listen to your inner guidance. If you can learn to trust yourself, there is no better guide for you. You know everything about you, your hopes and dreams, as well as what causes you worry and stress. You can blow away the stressors and attract your dreams, if you will let yourself. Please let yourself be serene and happy and light-hearted. There is absolutely no good reason not to. And let go of what doesn’t serve you. I recently got a fortune cookie that said the greatest meditation is a mind that lets go, and I believe it.

But it’s not easy to let go. It seems I struggle with that all the time. You can worry about things that never will happen, or you can attract stressors by thinking of them incessantly. But, on the other hand, you have the power to be happy, and that, I believe, is our natural state. Don’t let the stresses of life take your natural joy. Feed it happiness. We can do that!

It may help to remember the curiosity we all knew as children, and to let that overcome us again. Follow your curiosity, and really dig into life! It might help to remember the excitement we felt on Christmas Eve, or when we went on vacation as kids, not knowing what happy adventures were in store for us.

I have a favorite shirt that says Choose Happiness. I have another favorite shirt that says Live United. I believe that we can choose to be happy, and that when we really know that we all are one it’s easier. It’s not “us” against “them.” It’s “us” AND “them,” no matter what your politics are, and no matter if “they” don’t seem to love you. You can still love “them,” and you will be better for it. Love is the most powerful thing in this life, and in all of the universe!

Please remember that. And remember that we all can choose happiness. It’s our birthright! If we all live with love for all things in our hearts, we might be able to always be happy. I’m still working on that. Trump’s got me concerned, but I will let that go! And I will be free! Please join me. Whatever has got a hold of you is not worth wasting this glorious life. We can do it!
