I don't go to church or follow a specific religion closely anymore, but as I get older, the presence of the wonders of the universe just becomes stronger.
When I think back to the times I wished and prayed for a child of my own—just one—to prove I could fulfill my dream of becoming a mother, it makes me reflect on how much I've gained and grown these past three years.
I also prayed to meet a good and kind man, someone who would find me endearingly odd and potentially weird and love me for those exact reasons. And I did. The universe came through in its own way, in her own time.
So today I look back at my old self and simply tell her to hold on. A wave of blessings—along with all the joys and challenges that come with them—are on the way. They are following the secret map to your heart, slowly but purposefully.
Open it. Let the tide of the unknown, and all it offers, in.
You are about to be given the most profound gifts and lessons. Cherish them. Learn from them. There is a world of happiness in store for you. It was written in your stars long ago.
