Reflections Today of Being on This Planet for 55 Years

February 6, 2018 – Today is a special day for lots of reasons. Yes, it’s my birthday and I’m celebrating being on this planet for 55 years. The number five in numerology is all about change and double fives, well, you get the point…this year is set to shake things up and push me out of my comfort zone in BIG ways for sure. Let’s do THAT, whatever it is that I came to the planet to do! I say Yes and Yes! Thank you Universe.

And for those of you who knew me 25 years ago when I turned the big 3-0, you also know that tomorrow is the day my son Todd passed at the tender young age of 12. Clearly the biggest trauma that any parent can endure. Yet, it’s interesting how those two back to back days are completely entwined around life and death, huh? Well, I’ve known for some time that I would one day get a tattoo to commemorate my son but I didn’t know exactly what, where or when.

And then about 10 years ago, I met my hubby, Saysana Sengsouvannawho suggested that we get tattoos and again I knew truth when I heard it but I chose to delay delay delay on that front again….mostly because I like to avoid pain. LOL

But this year it was time. Time to celebrate all the highs and lows of my life with a meaningful reminder to me each and every day when I put my feet on the floor. Sat nam means truth is my name and the lotus flower , well it represents the beauty that resides within that emerges from the mud that I’ve experienced and survived. All of that mud has purpose. It has served me well. I no longer allow myself to be defined or limited in any way by what has happened in my life. Instead I choose to remember that in the eyes of my Creator, I am known as a child of the divine and surrounded by unconditional love with legions of Angels to help me with whatever challenges arise.

Today is a special day because I honor my life’s story which I will continue to write with joy until the day I leave this planet. I honor both of my children, Todd and Shannon, my hubby Saysana, my grand daughters, all of my family and friends and each and every one of you who have played a role, big or small, in the movie of my life. Through your eyes I have learned to see the world with a different perspective based on your life experiences. That’s priceless!! So thank you for being my teachers and inspiring me to become the best version of myself.
Today is special because I feel like I’ve reached the age of wisdom where I KNOW without a doubt the Universe is constantly conspiring to deliver to me whatever life lessons I’ve asked for before I was born. There are no coincidences, only divine appointments for me and for all of us.

May each of you who have read this far feel the love of your Creator and Angels surround you today to feel supported in all you do and all you are going through. May you be inspired to see the beauty in the mud that we call life. And may you write the most amazing story for your life….the one that only you can….because YOU CAN! That is SAT NAM my friends and that is why today is special.
