Breathtaking how we’re given exactly what we need…
I was frantically trying to pick up my day, getting my errands run off my list, and fervently revving my life back into order, when a slight miscalculation left me with unexpected time at my neighborhood Costco. Normally I’m in and out of this cacophonous block of “stuff”-filled concrete, but today I was not so lucky. I had about an hour and a half to idle away, sans book, sans distraction. And I didn’t feel like shopping. There was room for anything to happen. And yes, when you’re “given” time like this, even miraculous moments can happen at your local bulk warehouse.
Yesterday, I received a lovely email from my dear friend, Jonathan. In it, he shared that he had thought of me the entire time he watched the latest vlog from the effervescent Marie Forleo. I actually had received the same video from Marie’s newsletter that same day, and like all the other emails I get from her, it got scrolled over along with all the other emails I had yet to look through. But the combination of Jonathan’s email and my unexpected, unplanned, unwilling space left me with a marvelous opportunity. The opportunity to watch Marie’s interview with Mastin Kipp.
During the 28-minutes we shared together, I met numerous affirmations to the questions I had been blogging about for the past 14 months. Mastin publishes The Daily Love, and if you want to know what this guy does – it’s all in the title. He publishes love daily. And even when he was just starting off, and barely anyone knew who he was, he practiced, and chose, and forged ahead daily in love. That was the message I was meant to hear this morning, regardless of where I was or what I had intended to do with my day. And while I watched the video, the world around me grew quiet. And I was engrossed in the abundance of possibility that surrounds me.
Today, I share this video with you. May it fill you, as it did me. And give you back the wings you simply forgot belonged to you all along.
If it moves you, share it forward.
