An Open Letter to the Universe: Thank You for Another Chance
If you're dying for new energy, read this open letter to the universe. It'll inspire you to live the way YOU want to live, no matter what other people are doing, no matter what happened yesterday. Don't take this chance to be here, alive, for granted. Make it something that feels like magic, even when it feels like a mess.
“Perhaps the world isn’t giving you what you want because based on all your distractions and lack of discipline it’s simply unclear what you are asking for.” — Brendon Burchard
Writing out your gratitude is a powerful way to focus on what you *do* want. You're asking for more of that, and getting clear about how you want your life to feel.
Then you can live from a place of “already in love,” “already enough,” “already excited about having.”
May this letter inspire your own: to something larger than yourself, to the same intelligence that grows flowers and makes worlds turn. May you feel the magic of being here.
Dear Universe: Thank You for Another Chance to Live a Life That Feels Like My Own
Thank you for another chance to see things that others miss.
Thank you for another chance to understand what it means to be totally conscious, awake, alive in this body. Here on this earth, for this sliver of eternity, as I am.
Thank you for another chance to view my work as love instead of something to do.
Thank you for another chance to change my mind about the things that hurt me.
Thank you for this new breath. No, thank you for breathing me.
Thank you for another chance to be who I know I can be, no matter what people say or think I should be doing. Thanks for all the things that taught me how to say no.
Thank you for another chance to see the miracle in every ordinary thing that isn't ordinary at all. Like the stars, the way a smile leads to another smile, and how something invisible like the wind makes a huge maple tree move.
Thank you for another chance to feel my brother’s and father’s presence, even when the physical world would tell me they’re gone.
Thank you for always being here, unaffected by anything that happens, reminding me that there’s something in me that can’t be destroyed. (I love that feeling.)
Thank you for another chance to simplify.
THANK YOU for another chance to heal, to go back home to my own heart after forgetting I belong here, to myself... and to everything.
Thank you for another chance to love the people in my life, and to love them better (even the people I don't like).
Thank you for the new ideas, the inspiration that comes, even if it's the kind that comes at 2am.
Thanks, again, for reminding me that my work and my whole life thrives with a little breathing room.
