“You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.” ~Elizabeth Gilbert Dear Universe, Lately, I’ve been reminded of how difficult it can be to graciously receive our blessings.

“Let go of certainty.  The opposite isn’t uncertainty.  It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides.  The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.” ~ Tony Schwartz Dear Universe, The other day I saw this quote: “You have to allow yourself to grow.” …
