I recently had a solar return. Since my Sun sign is in Cancer you already know that I cried. Every year leading up to my birthday I get so hyped I just feel like I am a kid all over again. Then on the day of my birthday, I end up deep in reflection. It's my process. A process that I'm proud of because if I could talk to my younger self or write a letter to that version of me, I would tell her that we get better. If I could write to her I'm sure it would sound something like this:
Dear Younger Self,
I will never forget how our childhood was like a roller coaster ride because it was unpredictable, sometimes scary, and fun too.
Either way, look at us now doing what we said we would and being who we needed. Look at us now.. stronger than ever, big heart, fearless, and unstoppable. To come from no stability to being a safe space... girl, we did that. Thank you for not giving up. Thank you for not closing our hearts even when people didn't know what to do with us. Thank you for asking questions. Thank you for figuring things out. Thank you for being you. This older version of us is so proud of how far we've come. The level of care you gave, even when we didn't feel cared for is beautiful. That's what makes us beautiful. That is where our light comes from. So don't ever dim it. Don’t ever be afraid of it. And you already know that if we fall we don’t stay down. We get right back up and keep going. So keep showing up because one day you'll look back like I am now and feel this tremendous amount of joy that you can't even measure.
Continue to take up space baby girl I am cheering for us at every stage.
Your biggest fan… Me.
Um... Yeah… it would go something like that.
