The Magical Thread… Fate

I spent the majority of my life creating to do lists that were completely unrealistic. I was planning my life, months in advance, always trying to get ahead.   For some reason, I felt that if I completed everything on my color coded list, I could rest… I would be able to give myself permission for some much-needed ME time.  I contemplate these times and have to chuckle to myself. Who was I to believe that I was in control? Why was I so naïve to think that life could be finished?  I was a perfectionist and truly my own worst enemy. I was losing at my own game, digging myself into a hole that left me feeling unaccomplished and exhausted.


I realized that my job would never be done, regardless of the hours I spent trying. At the same time, I came to the acceptance that the house would not stay perfectly clean, the gardens would not be weed free and an artistic meal would not be on the table, 7 days a week.  I learned that the loved ones I assumed would be permanent fixtures in my life, would walk away.  I learned this because I lived it…    I had created unrealistic expectations for myself, for most of my life, trying to always please others…trying to make others happy, while I sat feeling completely alone.  I was unable to keep up with ME anymore.  I had to let go. I had to learn to trust in fate…

I turned 40 on 11-11-11 and this was a year of awakening for me.   I learned to trust in the big picture…I learned to embrace fate! There was a plan for me, regardless of my efforts.  During this time, I welcomed the unknown journey.  By doing so, I found peace within.  I allowed the universe to guide me.  I listened and trusted my intuition. I learned to BE STILL…   I no longer questioned.  It was during this year that I began to LIVE…


I have made more personal growth than one could imagine, during this magical time in my life.  Although the old ME can still resurface at times, she never stays for long.   I am living my dream each and every day, open to new and exciting adventures!  I have made connections with individuals I never would have thought imaginable.   The Universe patiently waited for me to listen…to trust…to be completely open…to LIVE.


I don’t believe in coincidences.  Every experience and individual in my life led me to the next.  A magical thread connects life’s moments through time.  Beautiful souls have entered my life, with no explanation.  There is an immediate and deep connection, regardless of distance or time.  A connection far more powerful than just a coincidence and one that can only be delivered by fate.  I no longer question these connections and trust in fate’s magical thread.


I also trust in ME!  When my intuition speaks, I listen…

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be…”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson


Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  2. Great post, Roda and the pictures are simply magical…✨ I also believe things happen for a reason, nothing is just there as it happens. Sometimes life is tough, and we might get frustrated by things not going or staying the way we want, but I also learned that we need to embrace them believing there’s always a reason that lead us to a better life.

  3. Oh Roda! That’s an awesome post. We are a month apart….turning 40 for me was also a turning point for me too in accepting me for me. I was also a planner and maker of lists. Life moments became planned….”after this baby, we shall move house……after this job,I shall have a mother baby…” crazy planning. Now, I accept that life cannot be planned for! It creates stress when moments became hurdles. I love the acceptance that age brings! Thank you for a great read over my coffee. Xxxx

  4. Oh my hearts desire… to let go, be, trust, live and embrace life as it is and trust in the magic of the future. My hearts desire, yet not my reality….I try, I fail, I continue to struggle and am weighed down by the ghosts.

  7. Beautiful Post Roda! It truly spoke to me! I have learned to listen at every moment to my intuition and accept the people that enter my life as well as exit. There IS a purpose for everything and a divine order, if we are awake to listen and follow, it actually works beautifully!
    By the way . . . We are 2 days apart, and 5 years, I’m 11/13. 🙂
