Are you ready to let go? Are you ready to surrender to the possibility of living life at a deeper level of love, kindness, and compassion? Letting go of the known, even when it’s not where you want to be, can be scary.
Yesterday was the 11-year anniversary of when I announced the beginning of Positive Focus. Although it became a nonprofit in 2009, the idea was birthed in early 2008. The vision I had for PF all those years ago looked very different than where we are today, and yet the foundation is still the same – sharing information and events on seeing love over fear. It’s been a journey of love and laughter, fear and tears, and everything in between. There are days I want to give up. As PF grew, so did I. It took time for me to realize letting go isn’t giving up, but rather letting go of controlling how it unfolds and allowing it to unfold for the highest good of all involved.
This past weekend, I was in Seattle and had many experiences while there, reminding me my dreams are unfolding as I walk into them. Signs of big bright rainbows, to seeing things occur within a short time of discussing it with friends, to the most powerful reminder of all…a starfish. We had just returned to the dock from an all-day whale watching tour and a starfish appeared stuck about 6’ out of the water on the pier. It was low tide and it hadn’t let go to remain in the water. I thought at the time it was so beautiful and I knew high tide was coming and it would be okay. A friend sent me the meaning of seeing a starfish and I want to share it with you.
Starfish: Teaches how to maneuver successfully in any situation. This creature is very agile and extremely strong. Starfish has amazing regenerative properties with an indication of coming back stronger and more abundant. If Starfish comes to you something in your life may take a year to regenerate, but when it does, it will be better and more abundant. Starfish shows how emotions can help propel you forward by tenacity and determination with slow and steady movements. It is a time to keep intuitions sharp and your outer “shell” hard. The wisdom of Starfish aids in strengthen your resolve by the wisdom of emotions and your own inner fortitude and strength.
Moving forward, when you find yourself in a position of afraid to let go, even if you want to…
Trust your dreams will reach up to support you just like the tide that is about to rise for the starfish.
Remind yourself you are stronger than you think.
Be tenacious and determined to live life with love as your guide.
Believe in your wisdom as you navigate life with slow and steady movements.
Mostly, my wish for you is to fully believe and KNOW you deserve to live LOVE in every aspect of your being. From health, wealth, and relationships…you are worthy of riding the waves of life floating onward knowing you are safe.
Until next time, let go of what no longer serves you to let in deeper love.
I let go of anything that holds me back from living love.

“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions.
