Entering The Unknown

Affirmation: I trust life. I allow life to reveal itself to me. Life loves me and I love my exceptional life.

I have forever been a planner. A huge dreamer and the biggest planner. I planned everything, because it always gave me a sense of security and accomplishment; especially when I could see those planned out goals come to life.  I had it all planned out. I was going to be married at 27 to Prince Charming, have 2 children, live in California in a big mansion and work for Disney. Somewhere in between there I was going to be Quincy, but as I entered college I decided forensic pathology wasn’t for me.

My plan was perfect. Except now I’m 41, still not married, no kids, but I have more often than not achieved many of my dreams and goals. At 21 I achieved my childhood dream of working for Disney in their International College Program. At 30 I achieved a life long dream of living and working in California, and have for the last 10 years. I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba so getting my visa and moving to California was a big deal, at least to me. I’ve had the opportunity to produce some exciting projects, meet and make friends with some very talented and successful people. I’ve danced the night away, and watched the sunrise over the ocean and the playa.  I’ve also been able to do some inspiring things that took form without being part of my plan like designing altars and sacred spaces, and writing and publishing my first childrens book The Land Beyond Time and the Faerie Master Spell Guide.

The last 6 months of my life have led me on a journey where I just couldn’t plan ahead though.  I’ve wanted to, but Life has really been leading me.  I think it has been all along, I just didn’t recognize it quite to the level I do now. I’ve really had to let go and put my trust in life. What I realized was that I had been basing my happiness on trust in results. In the past I trusted life if it gave me what I wanted (or thought I wanted), and if it didn’t it bummed me out, rather than just simply appreciating it for what it brings to you in every moment.

After reading You Can Create An Exceptional Life by Louise Hay & Cheryl Richardson I’ve further affirmed my conclusion that it might be best to continue not to plan and see what life has in store.  No Plan To Happiness let’s see where it leads us.

I hope you enjoy following along. I know we’ll create an exceptional life together!
