Dearest 41,

I hope to live this year with you in harmony and in love and in contentment.

I hope that we treat each other with kindness and tenderness and forgiveness

I hope that we embrace all the triumphs and all the challenges that come our way.

I hope that we live each day with a heart full of gratitude … focused on living a life out of love and out of understanding and out of acceptance.

I hope that we continue to be open to growth and change and life’s lesson.

I hope that we listen to the callings of our soul and of our heart and honor them fully.

I hope that we inspire those around us and those not around us by our words and our actions … I hope we create a ripple effect of love and goodness throughout.

I hope there are many sweet adventures in store for us … full of laughter and dancing and love and light and yumminess.

I hope there are new magical discoveries all along this path … 41.

I hope we take really good care of this body of ours … nourishing it properly with good food and plenty of water and exercise.

I hope we serve from the fullness of our hearts … and listen to the calling that God has on our life.

I hope we are the best of friends.

All my love,

Kolleen

from her face.

One by one, each time a bit slower than the last.

The deep seeded fear rose to her fingertips,

trembling as she prepared to remove the last of these shields.

“Will they still love me?”, she thought.

“Will they still want me around?”

“Will.

They.

Still.

Love.

Me???”

Soon,

She knew.

…my mantra, my soul

i feel that we are meant to love from the hearts we are born with … the heart of a child.

the innocent heart … the tender heart … the wild heart … the unbridled heart …the heart that has not been scarred … the heart that has not felt pain … the heart that has not seen heartache and anger and bitterness …. the heart that has not been tainted by harsh words.

God wants us to love from our childlike hearts ….

love without any boundaries, love with all that we are and all that we have.

Love without limits … without guidelines or restrictions or rules.

Love with tenderness and ease and acceptance …

not with ignorance or discrimination or prejudice.

God wants us to love with our souls …. the pure souls we are born into this world with.  Love without an agenda … JUST LOVE.

and when we feel we have loved enough … to LOVE MORE.

it is the answer …. it is the cure ….

it is the medicine, the healing balm …. it is the reason we are here.

 i strive to align more with this every single day i am blessed with.

thank you for listening,

(my vision for our world….loveWILD…The Misson is in the womb.)
