Riding on the fumes of gratitude – finding your niche
If you don’t, you should! (And now you will.) Her quotes are something else-so very powerful and breathtaking.
She has a way with words that just speaks to me (and millions across the world.) Her famous hashtag is #truthbomb….and there’s reason for that.
I was sooo excited when I heard she would be in New York in May! Turns out we will be away on vacay (hey…that rhymes!)
But that’s okay…I’ll keep enjoying her stuff anyway! (rhymes again!)
I know SOOO MANY of you out there have been feeling lately like you have a calling for something. SOMETHING. You just can’t pinpoint what that ‘thing’ IS yet.
There’s 3 of you I can think of off the top of my head right now who I KNOW are thinking this because we’ve talked about it semi-recently! (Actually 4 of you! I just thought of another!!! You guys KNOW who you are!)
I felt like that too. I did. I always knew there was SOMETHING, but I didn’t know what it was.
8 years ago my life got thrown around and shaken up to the point of where I’d stopped being ME for awhile. I was lost.
And then 4 years ago I hit this low. They called it a ‘bottom.’ I called it hell on earth. And even though I was still living, I thought LIFE was over for me. And that ‘thing’ that was my ‘thing’? I lost my chance. I was scum. I was sick…but I was still scum.
WRONG!!! (cue buzzer sound)
I was so, so wrong! That low point was an awakening. It was a chance to see the other side and know that anything else that ever happens from here on out will be BETTER. Absolutely anything.
Gratitude. I gave birth to gratitude. The pain of the birth of my children paled in comparison to the pain of this birth, but damn, if it wasn’t as beautiful and profound!
I let this birth guide me because it told me that there was a reason for all of it. It gave me hope & faith…something I had lost a very long time ago. I actually got my smile back too, something else I thought I had lost along the way.
What is it? I couldn’t tell you exactly. All I know is that I’m doing it and it feels so right and true and perfect. I frequently laugh and look to my Higher Power and know that this was all meant to be and say, “Of course this is it. Of course.”
No gameplan. No real goals other than to keep going with it and see where it takes me. Just being guided and doing what feels right.
For the past year and a half, that’s all I’ve been doing – riding on the fumes of faith and hope and gratitude. And I trust it completely.
And in those fumes is also the feedback I get from you guys, because if I didn’t occasionally get a ‘like’ or a ‘me too’ or a ‘yes!’ or a full-fledged comment or whatever from you all, I might have run out of steam a long time ago.
There’s a book, yes, and it’s basically written. But as with anything else I know it will get finished exactly when it’s supposed to. When the time is right.
If you FEEL like there’s something…YOUR thing…there IS. You just have to listen really carefully for it….maybe overcome some fears……take chances…
Do what feels ridiculous. Sometimes the most logical thing in the world is to do the thing that feels the most ridiculous.
You might be surprised!!! You might be blown away, actually.
And eventually you’ll laugh and say, “Of course this is it. Of course.”
