Dear Ari

Six years ago this January I thought my life was falling apart. Everything I had known was no longer. My life was at the darkest saddest, loneliest place it had ever been. I had truly hit the bottom and I wasn’t sure how I was going to get back up.

Today almost six years later I was going through some of my paper work and I stumbled upon a journal entry I had written March 12th 2007. When I read it I realized that indeed my life wasn’t falling apart it was falling together.

Here is the journal entry I wrote to myself.

March 12, 2007

Dear Ari,

I am so very proud of you. I honor you and I respect you. Hold on tight and get ready for the most amazing adventure. Your life will never be the same again. Your thoughts right now are creating your reality. You live your life by such an awesome example. People learn from you. People are attracted to your light. Live everyday to the fullest. Create your reality right Now! Keep doing what you are doing and always have fun.


I realized six years ago in order for me to truly live the life of my dreams I was going to need to do the work. When I say work I mean I was going to need to do what ever it took to raise my vibration and become a match to everything I had ever wanted. I knew that if it was to be it was up to me.

I can honestly say I haven’t turned back since that day. I have been putting my attention on only what I want and turning away from what I don’t want.

I close my eyes as I go back six years ago as I sat feeling hopeless, desperate and alone as I hold my own face so tenderly as I whisper in a sweet calming voice saying to you “You’ve got this. You are here on this earth to absolutely make a difference in the world. Keep moving forward my beautiful friend. I guarantee this, your life is absolutely transforming to everything you have ever wanted. Keep moving forward, full steam ahead”.

So as you read this I am holding your sweet face in my hands as I whisper a calming message to you “You’ve got this. You are going to be okay. Put your attention on what you want. Your life is transforming and whatever you might be working through rite now I can guarantee this to shall pass. Shine your light bright.”

Do you want a different life? In order to experience different you need to be different!

Have an absolutely amazing day and I look forward to talking to you again really soon.

P.S. I am right here if you need me
