Today is a good day. It just is. Despite my straightener breaking this morning (fail), I’ve got a serious case of the happies today. It’s just one of those days where I’m extra grateful to be alive.
Ever since I moved into my apartment, I’ve thought about what it means to have a greater plan. I look at the Caitlin from one year ago today and I see so much growth. What a difference a year makes. One year ago, I was in the middle of rebranding and just beginning to tap into my potential as an artist and as a woman. I look back and see someone who really, truly started to believe in all of her potential and unbeknownst to me at the time, that was my linch pin for flight. Once I was able to give myself permission to fly, my happiness quite literally took off. It seems so obvious but sometimes letting ourselves be happy is our greatest hurdle.
Why don’t we celebrate our successes more? We are quick to get down on ourselves during the tough and dark times. We ask ourselves why me? Why now? Why? Why? Why?
Well because it’s part of your plan. That’s why.
All of the trips and hiccups I’ve encountered over the past year and really, 25 years, have brought me to this moment now and I don’t want to be anywhere else. My dear friend, Lara, wrote recently – “So grateful for the storms that help us transform. It isn’t that there is a blessing in the storm. The storm IS the blessing. ”
Be still and listen. You are blessed, you have everything you need right now, and there is so much greatness ahead. So grab your party hats and some champagne because today is a day to celebrate how far you’ve come.
Hat’s off to you! To the hurdles you’ve overcome, your successes small and large, and to your bright future!Lifestyle, Personal, Photography
