Dear Resourceful Soul,
No matter where we are or what we have, there is always a way to point our feet in the right direction…and to just begin.
As the old Chinese proverb goes, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago — the second best time is today.”
Do what you can with what you have right now, today. Just point your feet in the right direction and take that first step.
You are so very very very loved.
Dear Beautiful Soul,
Change is hard and endings are difficult and saying goodbye is painful.
But one of the wonderful things about all of this is that what might SEEM like the end….
might actually be the beginning.
Even when something is ending or changing we can look back and be thankful…even though sometimes all we can know for sure is that we made it to today…because that is often a great big deal indeed.
As the old saying goes, “Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened,” and know that happy and amazing things are ahead for you. Your best years have not even happened yet!
You are so very loved.
You guys, I am so excited about what starts this week!
I don’t know if you heard or not, but we are doing a Soul Restoration Reboot. What that means is that I am doing Soul Restoration again as a student. And I’m the who wrote and created Soul Restoration! I have taught Soul Restoration live hundreds of times, and I have trained more than 100 people to teach it, and thousands have taken it online…
…but I personally haven’t taken it since I wrote it 10 years ago. AND I NEED IT!!!
We go through so many transitions in life and sometimes we are left wondering what exactly we need to do. When things feel confusing or hard, I always turn to the tools found in Soul Restoration. I use those tools every day, but I haven’t gone through the intense reboot of the entire course in 10 years.
SO DO YOU WANT TO COME DO IT WITH ME?
I HOPE SO!!!!
The REALLY COOL thing I’m doing this time that I haven’t done since the beginning is, I am adding art into the curriculum by doing an art journal!! You don’t have to do this, it’s not required, but for me, it has added a wonderful element to it that makes me really excited.
So…here’s how it will work….
HOW TO JOIN US ON THIS AWESOME JOURNEY…
I really hope you will join us… I can’t wait to work through this incredible curriculum as a student alongside all of you. This is going to be something special. See you in the Red Carpet group!
xoxo – melody
Thank you for joining us!!! We look forward to wonderful discussions as we go along!!
You are doing such good things, such beautiful, wonderful, and important things.
Do not feel bad that you have limitations and cannot do everything you want to do, or that you make mistakes that set you back or decisions that aren’t all that you hoped they would be.
You are doing enough. YOU ARE ENOUGH. You are just right, and you are doing your best.
When you have done all that you can do, let yourself BREATHE.
And remember that rest, relaxing, and solitude are just as important as all of the other incredible things you do with your life.
You are such a gift to the world. Take good care of you.
You are loved.
Dear Hopeful Soul,
Guess what? Good people have bad days sometimes. Smart people do dumb things sometimes. Bad things happen to good people sometimes.
Keep your eyes on the end goal, and try your hardest to be patient with life’s lessons.
Breathe in, breathe out …and TRUST.
It’s gonna work out.
You are so very loved.
Dear Healing Soul,
Your words could be the very words that someone needs to be able to move forward. And hearing the words come out of your own mouth might just change your own life, too.
If there’s someone you need to make amends with, someone you need to express gratitude to, someone you need to tell how much they mean to you, if there’s a difficult conversation that needs to take place…it’s a great time to do it.
You can do it. You are brave, and you are oh so loved.xoxo
Dear Infinitely Valuable Soul,
You are not a dilemma. You are not a problem to be solved. You are not a mistake. You are not a burden.
You are a beautiful soul who is learning, growing and stretching….and learning, growing and stretching come with a lot of bumps in the road.
Often we let ourselves fall into an identity or a belief that we will always be the broken one, the one with all of the problems, the troublemaker or the burden.
The problem with looking at yourself with a broken belief is that you may, without even thinking about it, attract and even seek out situations, relationships and even problems to prove yourself right.
What is beautiful is that when we finally start to see ourselves in the light of the truth….we begin to seek out and attract people and situations and a beautiful life that is meant for us, and life proves itself right.
What a wonderful thing. But it’s all in what we believe. Please believe the truth.
You probably don’t give yourself enough credit for everything you already know. You are actually an expert about so many things. Just about every person you meet is an expert at something.
Some are experts at making it through depression.
Some are experts at living on a tight budget.
Some are experts at making the most out of life when things don’t go as planned.
Everyone is an expert at something…and the best thing an expert can do is share what they know. That is how we help each other best. If you take some time to think about all of the things you have been through, it is really quite miraculous.
Every day you are becoming an expert at life. Trust yourself, listen, and share what you know…joy will surely follow.
You are so very loved.
Dear Striving Soul,
Let’s be smart. Let’s think about what is the good and right thing for our own particular life…and do that.
Let’s listen and believe it when our soul knows something is wrong or offensive to the deepest part of us…and then not do that.
And….when in doubt, love more….listen more….slow down and be…it will come to you.
You are loved and loved and then loved some more.
Dear Journeying Soul,
Think about where you are now….all that you have learned and who you have become and where you are headed…due largely in part to some things NOT happening that you were sure that wanted to happen.
It’s amazing to look back at some things that we knew for absolute sure that we wanted…things that we grieved over because they never happened. It is amazing to think about how blessed we were that those things never happened, or that we never ‘got’ the thing that we thought for sure we wanted.
Think back…find those things…and think about what happened INSTEAD. Even if those thoughts are painful, and you are still wishing….be patient. You are in the middle point of here to there. If things haven’t worked out…they aren’t done working out yet. You will soon see, beautiful friend…if you have not already, that everything somehow just works out. It always has, and it always will. Trust this.
Please be at peace.
Please trust your journey.
You have not been forgotten.
You are sooooo loved…
Dear Wondering Soul,
Is one of those days when you are wondering “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?” and “HOW DID I GET HERE?”
And you came out stronger, better, wiser, braver, and smarter than you were before it all happened, just like you will this time.
Because you see, dear friend, that is how we learn. That is how we grow, and that is how we become who we are meant to become.
You are so very loved,
