Ignore the photos in the magazines and rejoice in the gift of aging. Your life has texture and you have increased wisdom. Take pleasure in who you are right now this very moment. Don't waste a moment in disappointment or negativity. Shine your beautiful light into the lives of those who love you and enjoy the reflection of love that returns to your beautiful self.
Can you hear the angels singing? Ahhhhhh..... The Heavenly Choir announcing your enlightenment. But really, what does it mean to be enlightened? I'm not talking about spiritually, but then again, it's all connected. When you are "enlightened" in one area, it does effect your spirit, and even your health.
So what is enlightened? It's that Ah-Ha moment when you understand the joke you didn't get at first. Or the moment when you realize that the very thing that irritates you about the lady who bugs you is the exact reflection of yourself--and now you can finally forgive and embrace the situation. Enlightenment is that glorious moment of insight when you learn some small thing or something major. It doesn't have to be about drama. It means you "see" or understand something and it makes your life lighter.
It is an ongoing process. If you are still alive (silly me, you're here reading this), you have the opportunity for new insights over and over and over again. Even right now. Yes, right this second you can choose it. Are you choosing light filled? What color is the light you want to fill up with? What a liberating process it is to let go of what is unclear and not working, and stepping into what is clear.
Deepening your self knowledge and joy are worth seeking. Find the beauty of where you are right now. (One way to tap into that is through gratitude--even if you are grateful to know more clearly about what you want to actively create in your world.)
Sunbathe in the Light. Let it fill you up metaphorically and physically (yay vitamin D). Dance with the light. Know that shadows are part of life too. And remember, you are also light. Radiate and shine because you really make a difference. I'm so glad you're here.

Oh, my wondrous, sweet readers. Do you know how really beautiful you are? Do you know how loved you are? Are you letting it all in?
I came across this video (Thanks Dove!) and I'm writing this with tears in my eyes. I want you to know that the people that love you do not see the flaws that you are so critical of. This is for all of us.
Sometimes I've thought about my pets and how comfortable they are inside their own skin. They are so beautiful to me. They don't complain about their flaws, they are just their affectionate little selves. I don't even notice the kink in my dog's ear from the surgery she had last summer when she dances before being fed. My cat doesn't know how beautiful her blue eyes are and neither does she feel self conscious about missing all her big teeth because she's old.
We have let ourselves be tricked into thinking we are less than or not good enough.
Now it's time for us to wake up, take our hearts and minds back to the loving truth of who we are! We can wake up to the truth about beauty. It comes from the inside and the inside of you is beautiful.
Gift yourself right now by savoring the essence of you with a tender breath. Then a power breath. And an anchoring breath. Then share your smile because nothing lights up this world like a smile from the heart. Nothing. Really!
Stay sweet dear one!
