Truly Grateful for Grace

For by grace we have been saved
Truly grateful for Grace:

What does that mean? I sit here reflecting on the many changes I've had over the past several years, I have to only think of them in a positive light. I would not be the person I am today if I experienced things in any other way. All the things that came as a blessing - new skills, jobs, new love, friendships, growth, deeper connections. All the things that seemed terribly painful at the time - heartache, loss, sadness, divorce, detachment, and feeling isolated. I look back on the choices I made in each moment - to choose with an open heart or to choose based on fear.

The most wonderful opportunities have come to me when I've let go with an open heart - not knowing my next step but knowing it would lead me to the right place by listening to my inner being (the force of the Universe). My boundaries/instincts. To know that in each moment I have a choice - to let the changes happen and to manifest something great OR to let past patterns of fear defeat me. And, to know that in each moment, that the choice is a responsibility. A responsibility to me, to my loved ones, to everyone who I connect with in each moment. I am accountable for my choices. How do I want to impact others? Do I create a positive or negative impact in each and every interaction? Do I create drama by passing along my fears to others? Am I aware of the tone of my voice when I interact with friends and loved ones?

I am so flabbergasted when I look back at big times of change in my life (like those I brought on recently), and they are all very similar - they all lead to great growth and a feeling of being connected to something much bigger and filling my heart with gratitude. And, what's happened is that my fears have virtually diminished. I know that there are infinite opportunities in every moment and that they are presented to me when I choose to handle the changes with calmness and faith. When no matter what the unknown outcome - I still choose to handle my interactions with Grace.

Like a still breeze - always there and yet so miniscule that it is barely felt. That breeze is the moment of choosing - what is my heart and soul telling me is the right way. I choose to handle it with GRACE.
