Founder Friday with Erica Reid


Dear nécessité,

Happy Day my love,

How are you? Let’s check in with ourselves. Right now. Before reading further, let’s take a moment and ask, “How am I?” How am I mentally? How am I physically? How am I emotionally? How am I spiritually? Give attention to yourself where you may feel required. As for me, I am feeling in balance and so grateful this week. My cells are full of gratitude.

I am feeling mentally strong and positive. I work to keep the side chatter out! It is work. I do so by keeping certain I am taking in positive information and trusting my intuition. I have been unable to be my typical physical self for years, but I keep my body moving simply by walking (better than nothing, with some limitations).

I am emotionally in balance right now (Thanks to my good cleansing cry to release a bit of frustration from my physical experiences), and spiritually, I am so plugged in. At peace and connected to the source! I am incredibly grateful. I live right (not perfect) and aim only to do right; spiritually, I feel right. My karma is beautiful. I love all of me. I honor all of me. I accept and appreciate all of me. Gracefully.

This brings me to share with you. I have been seeing and hearing the words ‘acceptance and appreciate’ lately. To me, that is a sign from above to check in and ask if I am serving it. Am I accepting? Am I appreciating? Can I do better in these areas? I believe I can. There must be something I must accept and appreciate, so the universe threw me a little reminder.  

I am bathing in the light of these two words: acceptance and appreciation. I do not take them for granted. Instead, I have learned to accept and appreciate all of my gifts. Material gifts or not, I accept. I appreciate. I accept my fine hair, lips, body, youthful energy and spirit, face, and legs getting spots on them out of nowhere; I accept and appreciate my beautiful breast that fed and nourished my children not once but twice.

I recently told my breast again, thank you. Thank you for allowing me to produce enough nutrients to feed my babies because I was once their only fuel. I am aware and truly sympathize; unfortunately, this is not the norm nor the case for many babies. Therefore, I so appreciate what mine were able to do. Think about it; the power may also be in the breast. Food supply. That is magical and powerful to me. Years later, I am still appreciative. I accept them for how they look, and they have remained there for me daily all these years. I embrace the beauty and health of them. (There was a time my breast dealt with a different breast journey- THANK GOD for Mother Earth’s food). 

These are all gifts to me and for me. I say thank you when I receive any gift- material or not. I acknowledge the person that sent it with a proper thank you. I do not only take and show grace; I accept, regardless of how big or small of a gift. Do you? I have learned to accept; that some people are more takers and do not always acknowledge and show grace. I accept this, and I appreciate it. I appreciate it because it shows me always to accept and appreciate everything.

I accept that I cannot make time stand still at any given moment. I cannot pause time. Can you? Time waits on no one. Therefore, I accept and appreciate what I receive from time as well. I accept I cannot always do things perfectly; I like perfection and am GOD’s perfect! I accept this, and I appreciate this. What about you?

Literally, as I am expressing in this Founder Friday to share with you right in this present moment, I look up, and I see this beautiful, perfect arched colorful rainbow that presented itself to say hi, and it made me smile so wide. I had to take the photo and share it with you. One of the significant meanings of it to me came as I am expressing to accept and appreciate. So you KNOW, I am accepting this visitor and fully appreciate her. And just like that, she went away after I acknowledged all of her and accepted and appreciated her. I shared the beauty of it with you, some friends, my husband, and my children. GOD makes no mistakes. That was pure excitement for me in this moment. A colorful picture GOD gave me to share as a gift that I accept and appreciate. THANK YOU, GOD. Can man make a rainbow?

I accept you, and I appreciate you. Thank you for sharing this moment with me. 

You are a nécessité
