Friends of Bluebird Fairies,
People often ask me if I’m always so positive and I often respond with “No, that’s why I have all these fairies around me.”
The fairies are here, in part, as support for the lifelong lesson that our best character developments come, at times, through adversity.
And, just in time for this blog writing, I’ve come across a newly drawn fairy that supports this idea. Please join me in welcoming….
The ‘Fairy of Letting it all be okay.’ I love her enthusiastic words saying “Yes. Let’s Let it!”
I’m reading a book my mother gave me for my birthday. It’s called The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World. It shares the stories and outcome of a week-long visit between the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
When the 8 pillars of Joy were introduced I felt I was given a great gift. Now, when I find myself in a situation that feels really thick in my mind OR I’m having a feeling of tightness in my chest OR I’m flustered by my inability to fit all the things I want to into a period of time, I think of them.
They are: Perspective, Humility, Humor, Acceptance, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Compassion and Generosity.
Just thinking of them, takes me to a better place where it’s easier to relax, breathe and, yes, move into ‘letting it all be okay.’
We’re wishing you all the best!
Emily and the Bluebird Fairies
