I want you to have an open mind, and that's where we're going. I am open to trusting in the universe that the right words will come out of my mouth. I know that sounds woo-woo. But we have to trust something. And in this episode, we talk a lot about trust. We talk about faith and God. And I don't want that to deter you because it was vital in my recovery and still is. But it may not be for you, and that's OK; it doesn't need to be. 

The key message is not God; it's about awareness and awareness that things are happening in your life. The synchronicities. They are happening, but maybe you need to pay more attention to them precisely. I hope to open your mind and eyes to that. And, if it doesn't, that's OK; you're not ready. And that's the point here: we all are at different points in our journey. Lyvita talks about that. If you're not ready, you're not prepared, and that's OK. 

It's like a friend that keeps reaching out intoxicated, and that's OK. I don't judge him. There are so many things I want to say to him. But he's not ready to hear it without judgment. He will be OK. He will figure it out when he's ready. Or maybe he won't. I need help figuring it out. That's what it's about—giving up that control. That was the most significant learning curve for me in life. This past little while, did not being in control of everything. 

I'm excited for you to listen to Lavita. And I know some people are saying, oh "God," well, that's ridiculous. You see, I've been there. It's OK, but it's good to have an open mind, just like looking. In the news, looking at the left and right in the center is good. Be neutral. Be the observer in your life. It's important. But what do I know? I listen to people that are wiser and more intelligent than me. And what resonates? I go with that. That's back to a point I make in this episode, take action, move on something instead of doing nothing. It's critical because you won't know yourself until you take a chance or do something that scares you. After all, that's when the truth comes out. And living with integrity is so important.

We all have value to add to each other's lives, I hope I can add value to yours, and I know you have tremendous value you can add to mine. It's about community; let's connect. https://www.facebook.com/groups/370652418580653/
