I just finished the most delicious new book. Outrageous Openness, by Tosha Silver. You must stop everything and pick it up. Audible or Reader version, either will work for this book, so download it, stop at a bookstore, whatever you must do.
I attended the recent Hay House event “I Can Do It, Austin” and after many of the speakers referenced the book and the author, I just had to put it to the top of my reading list.
Every page is like warm water running over me, soothing my soul. It’s an interesting blend of LOA, Religion, Angels, Faith, and God. Mostly, I embrace the Openness and wild, unending, blind faith. I love the quote above and whisper it to myself daily when my heart starts racing, worrying, stressing, or trying to figure out the answer to every question that could be asked. I have over-thought everything for years. I’m a statistics girl, an analyzer of all potential outcomes, a weigher of pros and cons. I vaguely remember a “me” that was wild and open and free. A girl that took roadtrips in the middle of the night, and moved to new cities without concern. I applied to jobs confidently that I had no experience for, and I met new people of all thoughts and beliefs and enjoyed debate without concern of what someone thought of my opinion.
At some point, I started worrying more about making the right decision, than enjoying making the wrong ones. I stopped trusting the universe to provide Divine guidance and blessings and started trying to micro-manage my life. To force decisions. To out-think everything.
Maybe all I needed was to remember to let go. Let the Bohemian Gypsy girl inside of me romp and play and trust that there are miracles all around me at all times. That I am always protected. That everything will work out for the absolute best, and I don’t have to try to make it. I just need to breathe. And Love. And trust.
Create your Sunshine Life. Be outrageously open. Trust the Universe. Romp wildly. Laugh loudly. Dance in the streets, and know it will all be ok. There are miracles all around.
