I often joke that I’m not a “woo-woo” person. I am straight-forward, to the point, sometimes even blunt about it. So this post may confuse you a bit – fair warning.
There are times when you just have to step back and say, “Oh, the universe!” And this past week, was that way for me. Everything lined up in a way that was almost too good to be true.
I had an opportunity to go back to my soul city for the summer – maybe for longer, but everything had to align just perfectly to make it happen. Not just “make the move happen” alignment, but figure out what to do with my lease, my furniture, and so on.
Within two hours, the apartment was taken care of. I posted it on Craigslist and within two hours, she called, she came, she signed. Seriously – the “impossible” lined up and happened.
There were several other things over the past week that made take pause and have a “universe” moment. It was the week of amazing praise and feedback that brought me to tears a few times with gratitude and impact.
If you missed the amazing recap of my first Twitter Chat, please check out the ELGL feedback here – they presented me with the Knope Award of the Week, which is awesome. But more than that, people I care deeply about and respect, talked about their experience and… about me. People in Caribou thought I was crazy when I was tearing up reading it. But it was that awesome.
A former client sent me a note saying how her business is exceeding her original financial numbers, some great updates, and closing with:
“Thank you so much for helping to make all this happen. I am deeply indebted to you!! You are a wonderful mentor, and I appreciate all you have done for me.”
I mean, whoa – cherry on the top, right?
So take a pause – especially for those of you out there who are solopreneurs or struggling to make something work. When it feels like it’s time to say “Oh the Universe” with exasperation, dig around you to see the various things and “whys” to make you exclaim “Oh the Universe!” instead.
It’s not always easy, but this past week showed me that I’m seeing those signs. And maybe, just maybe, that I am heading in the right direction.
