It's Alright

Get this groove get you to move, it's alright, alright, alright - Earth Wind and Fire

As the year comes to a close, I am reminded of how "alright" everything really is. No, seriously, it really is "alright". Everything, every occurrence, every heartbreak, every celebration, every encounter is not by chance. It is a combination of our beliefs and vibes we send out coupled with the Universe sending us a message.

What happens is that we get bogged down in fear, shame, how it will look, how much time we "invested" in the thing and what will happen next.

As a Course in Miracles taught me be willing to see it differently, Start there

And so  as 2016 comes to a close, I am getting into the groove because its alright! 

It's alright to give thanks despite how it looks to you now

It's alright to feel the feelings 

It's alright to cry

It's alright to laugh at yourself at times

It's alright to take a break

It'alright to celebrate 

It's alright to piss some people off if it is in keeping your boundaries and promotes self care.

It's alright if he or she says they want out and is moving on

It's alright because you are alive

You just move yourself and groove yourself and share the spice of life
