Hello December, and a Gift From the Universe
December is here, and all I want to do is having fun!
Let me be clear about this- so that this post could be of greater help.
It's not that my life is perfect: it's perfect the way it is and I've stopped judging it.
Yes, there are some things that I would like to be different, and yes, I also shed lots of tears often for a part of my life I don't want to speak about (no worries, I'm well and God/The Universe/ Spirit/ my Soul is taking care of what I can't take care of, so I'm definitely in good hands! :)).
But as for now, I've decided to focus on what I have and make the most of it.
Days ago- or even weeks- I had gathered some twigs at the park. It wasn't my intention to go out searching for them- but they happened to cross my path (after storms there were quite a lot on the ground) and I saw their creative potential... and so a huge buch came home with me.
So yesterday, I decided to make a wreath and they came to mind. I used just twine to secure the twigs, adding more and more layers gradually, and then I finished it off with a lovely felt robin (from IKEA) and some baker's twine. All of our decor this year is like this- I love to have everything coordinated whenever possible.
Creating makes me happier than I can tell... for JOY alone. For the JOY of the process more than the outcome.
And I really like keeping myself happy!
And now, about the door I've used for styling. This awesome, gray, weathered door that makes my heart soar!
I really, really wanted an old, weathered door, with chippy paint- I even thought that it would have been really pretty if it was gray(!!!)- for my photography and styling. I intended to go out and buy it somewhere- I had no idea where to look for it, and was determined to start going to flea markets and the like to see if I could find one. Even a simple piece of wood would have been great.
I went to a couple markets, but couldn't find it.
Then one day, in November, I was strolling down the road and what do I see? This amazing, just perfect door by the roadside to be thrown away! My heart skipped a beat and the first thing I thought was " THANK YOU (GOD/UNIVERSE)!!!!". Because I instantly recognized it was a gift for me from above.
I didn't want to take it without seeing if it really was garbage- but there seemed to be nobody there. I waited, and after a while a lady came out of the adjacent door and I approached her. She was super kind and more than happy for me to take it (she even offered me other old and chippy doors! I joked I could start a business selling them LOL). A shop owner I know was so kind to keep it for me overnight, so that I could pop by next day with my car and bring it home. Wasn't he sweet?
And that as I am very generous, the Universe is always very generous with me. You get what you give (with a pure heart)- always.
Of course, I know and feel deep this Truth in my heart, and I expect it to be so.
I just love this abundance, it keeps showing up in my life in such mysterious ways. And now, differently from just a bunch of years ago, I'm ready and grateful and excited and eager to receive it with open arms.
