You're on the right track

Updated: Oct 18, 2018

Sometimes signs appear in unexpected ways that tell you that you are on the right track.

In the last week, my home life has been overwhelming due to my husband’s surgery. The doctors said it would be a simple operation. We've since been back to the hospital 3 times for pain and bleeding, and he is now at home and in my workspace.

My husband has worked out daily for the last 20 years and is in fantastic shape, but his body was in no way prepared for the side effects he experienced. Thankfully, they caught the blood clot early and he is home recovering. Feeling anxious and a bit overwhelmed, so of course, those old limiting beliefs of not be enough start coming out again.

Yesterday, the universe sent me a reminder that things do work out exactly as you want them too, or at least, that's how I choose to see it. The reminder came from my daughter, Lilly.

After graduation, she had a dream of living across the country in California and work for a major PR firm. She is a writer.

She was recently hired for a position at a PR in West Hollywood.

During her interview, the company requested she sends them a 150-word paragraph about, “what makes her unique.”

Her short paragraph showed that the real goal is to be who are, along with the peace of knowing that that is enough. All your experiences have made you this unique, magnificent person and every hardship is a lesson leading to where you’re supposed to be.

You can see that it wasn’t about her degrees or accomplishments, it was only about who she was as a person.

Thank you for allowing me to share my daughter with you. Here is her response to their request that earned her the job.

I am happy to a fault. My incessantly positive attitude sometimes even annoys myself, yet I am convinced that creepily smiling at everyone is at least part of the reason I am where I am today. I moved to California without a job, any friends or a permanent place to live. Some would call this courageous or as my dad would call it “irresponsible,” but I am sure of myself and was confident that things would work out. The first few months were a struggle. Renters don’t love leasing to recent grads with no money, and it was tough to find a career without a place to live, but the smile stayed strong. I continued to search while sharing a studio apartment and was happy doing it because I had made it, and a few hiccups will never ruin my good time.

Thank you for being here.
