You. Matter.

You. Matter.

In Soul by Melani Marx

Here is what I want you to know today…

I want you to know that you matter.

That you make a difference simply by your presence here on the planet.

That sometimes life is excruciatingly hard… and still it is soooo worth it.

That everything changes – the good and the awful.

That simple IS better.

That curiosity and wonder are, in my opinion two of the best values to cultivate.

I want you to know that it is vitally important to get up every morning and find something to sing about.

To bless.

To be grateful for.

Love really IS all there is. It is the fabric that holds us together. Connects us. And the fact that this is science makes me smile all over!

Each moment is precious, golden, and an opportunity. For yourself. For your family. For your friends. For the other seven billion some humans you share this magnificent, revolving orb with.

I want you to know that I value the fact that we are connected – even if we have never met and I do not know your name. If you are reading this we are – connected. And for all of those billions of humans that never read this – the ones I never have any contact with in 3-D – we are all still connected. This is the web of life. This is the Truth. This is also science.

I don’t take it lightly that we are – connected. Life and all of our connections are precious, fragile and rich.

The choices we make and the decisions we live by are sacred contacts with ourselves and others.

Everything we do matters. Makes a difference. Affects the Whole.

I want you to know that you are more loved, more appreciated, more valued than you can possibly imagine in this moment. Don’t wait until something awful happens to take that in. Please.

That we can only have what we can imagine… so imagine BIG! That what you believe is what you live. So if you don’t like what you are living – look at what you believe about yourself  your life, other people.

Choose something better. You can.

That the world is a better place because you are here. That is takes each and every single one of us to make up the Whole. That means you.

I want you to know that if you are struggling, please don’t beat yourself up for it.

That no matter what your deepest shameful secret is – you are still love. You are good. Beautiful. Valuable. Whole. Even when you don’t believe it.

That the nature of the cosmos is that things fall apart before they come together in new and more organized patterns. So just because they are falling apart does not mean they are getting worse! My favorite mantra that came to me in a time of great turmoil and destruction in my own life is this… ” My barn having burned to the ground, I can now see the moon.”

I want you to know that there is wonder and magic everywhere if you are present – and willing to see it. Even – especially – in the midst of turmoil.

I want you to know that what you believe about something is what you will experience.  I know I said that before and it bears repeating. This too is science, NOT wishful thinking.

I want you to know that I care deeply about your well being – and mine. That I am committed to showing up every day and living my life in the most honest manner I know in any moment. That I am fierce about my own liberation and the liberation of others. That means you as well!

I believe in a truly beneficent Universe. I know that life is an extraordinary adventure. I am sooo glad to have you along for the ride.

Take in what nourishes you. Fill yourself up  – first. Every. Single. Day.

Then pass this on, dear one. Let’s light up the sky. Let’s light up the world. Please pass it all on.
