The pink Balloon wafted into her daydream. It was so alive and real that her fingers tingled as she reached for the swaying ribbon.
She blinked a few times: startled by the feeling it was talking to her. "take heart" it said softly. "your path is here, you are on it and headed in the right direction for you. Remember to rejoice in the small moments. Write them down so you can see them when you are troubled. We all wish things were different sometimes; that's normal. Every step you take, no matter the size, is progress. Remind yourself every day that the universe brought you to where you are for a reason. It will continue the journey and you may or not realise the purpose. Accept it for what it is, a step, a stop, a change.
Create tomorrow's history today where you can. Remember you're worth it, so very worthy.

She climbed under the covers, reached over and turned off her bedside lamp, laid back and sighed. “Dear Universe,” she whispered, “I would like it known that I am finished with the dating scene. I’m so tired of it all; I would rather concentrate on simply enjoying life. I hope you don’t mind. Goodnight”
Looking back is not something I do very often and yet I found myself doing that as I wandered home after work today. It’s July 2013 and who would have thought I’d be in a different city and state, a new job, plus have the most darling man in my life. It was a bit of an odd moment when I lay in bed and told the universe to release me from the world of dating but now I see it as a pivotal one. At the time I was tired of lots of things but especially the thought of being judged up close and personal. We are constantly being judged and sometimes that’s simply a part of being in a society. However, it’s also nice to be able to be around people who are happy with you the way you are.
It’s so nice to be able to reflect on the recent past and know that where you are now is a product of the difficult times; times that you survived. In 12 months I’ve come so far and so fast that it has blown my mind a little bit when I compare my life now to what it was back then.
The universe certainly can deliver what we need; we just have to open our minds and our eyes to the possibilities and take a leap of faith every now and again. I’m very glad I did, very glad indeed.
