A Note from the Universe

Just because you can have it all, doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you until you do.

To the contrary, it means you’re smoking on fire, destined for greatness, exactly where you should be, with thoughts that become things, in a dream of your own creation, about to blast off as you become who you are meant to be.

Daily Wisdom
December 30, 2021

“Individualism is rather like innocence; there must be something unconscious about it.”

-Louis Kronenberger

When we’re comfortable in our skin then our true self shows through naturally – we don’t have to think about impressing anyone or doing the “right” thing, we just are who we are and everything is great. We can relax and be ourselves knowing that all is well.

-Lissa Coffey
