I have a confession to make. It is no secret that I have not posted in awhile, but the fact that I have lost motivation and inspiration is a sad reality. There have been moments that I did want to write but found no time, or choose well…I will just say it….to party! Heck, it has been a great whooping crazy fun summer!
The last couple of days have really put me back on my feet and in touch with my center. When I needed help and asked for it, friends and the universe were there for me. Its great when you have your eyes open and can identify those little signs of God reaching out. I’ve not only fallen off the running band wagon, its just been a whole lifestyle that I have adopted and strayed away from the past few months.
A couple of days ago when I posted to Facebook “I need help getting back on the running bandwagon”, I receive an amazing e-mail from an old friend whom I have not seen in almost 2 years that she too is now seeking balance though running and trying new things in life and I unknownlingy inspired her. Then today I recieved this wonderful card in the mail!
The main reason I set a goals is to encourage others to be healthy (mainly my family), I’ve ultimately become the winner because living a healthier life has made me happier! So I set a new goal a month back, to complete my first 10K Big House Big Heart and I made a donation to a non-profit called Girls on the Run. I didn’t know much about the organization but that they did good by preparing girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living through running and activities. Today they sent me the best hand written card in the mail that reminded me of why I am doing what I’m doing and what has always been my goal, to encourage girls/women to be happy and healthy! What a great way to say thank you. I will continue to support this program and I hope if your interested in it you will too!

Last Saturday I reminded myself that my life is easy. Things just always come to me, or they just work out the way I want them to. I haven’t thought this in awhile, not for any reason unparticular I just hadn’t. Then on Saturday the thought just came to me and I said “oh yea…that is true normally things just work out the way I want them to and I don’t have to worry about it”. The first time I lost my job 2 years ago was the first time I was stumped on how did this happen to me? I did have to remind myself that it was my choice, I could have moved to Arkansas. YUCK! I put in the hard work required and landed back on my feet. Of course I wasn’t alone in this scenario because many of my friends had also lost their jobs.
So this brings me to the following week. Friday April 2nd was one of my best friends 30th birthday’s and Sunday was Easter. Looking at flights to Minnesota was nonsense at $600 a pop; there was no way I was going to afford it. Then I got a call from a customer of ours on Tuesday who said they wanted to meet with us the following week on Tuesday the 6th! It took a lot of work to pull it together on such short notice. My colleague was off for Passover, my boss was on vacation another one was out sick but I did the due diligence to coordinate with everyone’s schedule and Friday I was off to Minnesota!
Surprise! I didn’t even have time to let anyone know. It was so great to see her face when I showed up at her roller skating birthday party! I was so happy I could be there for her and a part of her special day. It just amazes me how everything just fell into place. I wouldn’t call it luck or magic but the Law of Attraction. I seriously believe that my life is how it is meant to be and what I want will eventually present itself.
My mom had asked me to bring The Secret DVD next time I came into town so we could watch it together. I looked everywhere but could not find it. The day before I came back to Michigan I was looking for a pen in my briefcase and pulled out The Secret DVD! It was seriously eerie. At that point we had to watch it! I believe in Karma, the Law of Attraction, and the Secret and feel it’s amazing when a realization comes true like what happened this week. It proves the power of the mind. Practice gratitude, visualization and truly believe that your brain can transform your current reality to whatever you wish it to be. Now that is powerful!
