Last week I mentioned that I thought the two main ingredients to living a Truly Amazing Life were 1) Positive Rituals and 2) Loving Community.
But then I got this reply from TAL Family member Ana which I truly appreciated…and I actually think Ana said it more accurately.
When I first came across your book and news letters I was in a really dark place.
Full of despair, couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Your emails gave me solace and helped me believe that there was hope of happiness for me yet.
For that, I will always be grateful, thank you!
In reply to this email you just sent, for me the two ingredients to living a truly amazing life are simply Love and Gratitude.
One does not need anything more.
I really appreciate Ana for sharing that…because in fact we don’t need anything outside ourselves in order to live a Truly Amazing Life.
She made a really great point.
I think it would have been more accurate for me to say that positive rituals and loving community are two of the main things that help me return to a state of love and gratitude each day.
I appreciated the opportunity to clarify that.
So thanks to Ana! And thank you for reading and being a part of my life, and to everyone who gives me feedback and opportunities to learn.
You are awesome!
But there’s one other thing about her email that struck me…
…Who could know how the simple act of sending out emails with thoughts on life could be so dramatically impactful on another person’s life?
I certainly can’t predict when my words may really touch and help someone.
But I do know this: When my heart feels joyful as I work and write…even though there is fear and hesitation sometimes in being vulnerable and speaking from my heart, I can trust it will be a good thing because of the joy and the love I feel.
The joy and the love we feel is our heart speaking to us.
I encourage you to follow your heart no matter what…even if you’re afraid of what people will think.
We can’t predict the outcomes of our actions…but when we listen to our heart, speak our truth, act and work from a place of love regardless of fears and resistance…
…Beautiful things happen.
Listen to your heart. Do whatever you do from a place of love. Make today amazing!
