"Belief. Belief in yourself, believing that you’re worthy, believing that you have what it will take, knowing, believing, that you will do or be whatever it might take. When you have that level of belief, of conviction, you will open yourself and your world to the power of the universe. What you want will become. Belief will connect you.
Without belief, without conviction, you will observe life as if from the outside of a glass wall, looking in. Life will pass you by; the things you want to be, have, and do will float on the other side of the glass, out of reach, just ethereal fantasies to taunt you.
Until you believe. Then you know that there is no glass wall. The glass wall was within you, holding you back from having, being, doing.
Believe! It is magic, and with it, anything is possible."
I really like the way this was written; it spoke to me as soon as I read it. I observed life from the outside most of my life even as I blundered through mistakes and downpours of squandered energy. This is one of the blog gems I will save.
It has taken many years, but I finally know I deserve love and respect and peace and I am so blessed to have exactly that in my life at last. Every day is so important, every encounter is for a reason, every thought goes out into the universe and adds to the glorious mix. I finally feel part of the mix. No more holding back. Big sigh.
