A blessing, a wish, from my heart to yours.

Precious Soul,
May you let Life be Life…
May you let go of trying to figure out solutions for everything that could possibly go wrong,
May you let go of the anguish and worry when getting so caught up in these scenarios that even the solution-finding gets short-circuited.

May you instead be ok with the yin and yang of Life,
May you choose to live in appreciation for the times of sorrow and the times of joy.

May you choose to remain open to all of Life’s experiences,
open as opposed to resistant,
gratefully, and humbly present to what is,
instead of in a state of anxiety for what might, or has gone ‘wrong’.

And when you catch yourself worrying, may you play with imagining all the delicious things that are just as likely to happen that would reveal the ecstasy and joy already within you!

So may it be 🙏
Much love always 💙

Blessing backstory:⁠
A while ago I decided to find uplifting images, ones that made me smile and lifted my spirit. And to send them together with a blessing, a personal wish, to my immediate family. Over time it’s become a ‘daily-ish’ morning practice via WhatsApp to a slowly growing recipient list. Recently I’ve started to share these blessings and images on social media too, with a prayer that they brighten the world of those who receive them.
