Over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking about what I want out of life; what I would like to have in order to feel really, truly happy. I have a few things in mind that I think will help so I’ve decided to write them down and ask the universe to bring them to me. Maybe if I put them out there in the ‘real’ world I’ll get what I actually want this year for Christmas.
1: I’m ready for a new job.
Currently I work in Human Resources for a not-for-profit company. The work they do is vital and important but I don’t really want to be doing HR anymore. What I want to be doing is creating for a living. I’ve applied for one job as an entry level editor of a magazine, I’ve been looking into freelance writing work, I’ll even take up life modelling as a serious thing if that is what it takes to make sure I have enough money to live on. So…
Dear Universe, please bring me a fantastic new job opportunity. Somewhere that I can grow my skills in writing, somewhere I can make new friends, and somewhere I can feel like I’m contributing something to the world. Love Fleur.
2: I’m ready for a boyfriend*.
I haven’t had a romantic relationship since September 2011. I understand that there were a lot of things I needed to work on within myself to get me to a place where I was ready for a relationship. I’ve been working really hard at being a better me, and I think I’m ready for someone to share that with. So…
Dear Universe, please bring me into contact with a fantastic person with whom I can have a loving, reciprocal and on-going relationship. While I consider myself straight, I will accept whoever you think is best. Please also bring me the wisdom to know that person when I meet them. Love Fleur.
3: I’m ready for some new friends.
I have some fantastic friends, they are beautiful and warm and loving, but they’re almost all in long term relationships and some have children too. Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy spending time with them, but they’re often really busy and, understandably, can’t/don’t want to go out late etc. I’d like to get to know some more people who are creative, who are vibrant, and who are in a similar place to me in terms of life stage. So…
Dear Universe, please bring me into contact with some fantastic people with whom I can build ongoing, reciprocal, meaningful friendships with and who will be able to broaden my horizons. Please also give me the wisdom to recognise them when we meet. Love Fleur.
4: I’m ready to be happy.
All of the things above are things I think will make me happy. Ultimately though, I want the wisdom to make myself happy. So…
Dear Universe, please bring me whatever I need to be happy with what I have. Please give me the resilience to weather life’s ups and downs. Please give me the strength to fight for what I believe in, for what is right. Please give me the ability to love myself, my friends, my family, and for humanity in general. Please give me the confidence to do what I enjoy and not to do what I don’t enjoy. Love Fleur.
Hopefully putting my requests out there will enable me (or the universe) to do all the things I need to do to achieve what I want to achieve in the next year. I don’t think these requests are too big, or too greedy. I think I deserve them, I think everyone deserves to be happy.
