Don’t you love it when things gently fall in to place? It is the absolute BEST! I have been experiencing a peaceful flow to my life in recent days. It feels like a clear path is opening up to me day by day…and I am astonished at the simplicity and abundance of it all.
Things seemed so rocky, bumpy, scary…and then, it all shifted. I do not even know how to explain it. Did I change? Did others change? Is it a cosmic force beyond my control? I do not have the answers. I admit I have been drawn to the skies lately… the blues, the pinks, the perfect colors that only nature can provide. It feels more like a sense of wonder.
Every morning I drive the same familiar roads, toting my kids to school. There is one distinct point in the journey where we come over the top of a hill and look down from the top. At that moment, the Olympic Mountains rise in the distance, snow-capped in misty layers of purple shading. It always looks unreal to me. It feels like a dream… too majestic to be true. I am realizing it is an amazing vision…and I am living it!
This is a wonderful awakening. Something delightful is happening. Change. The seasons change, and we must join them. We must take note of the sun as it sneaks through the clouds. As the influential rays break through, they bring such warmth and put a beautiful spin on the earth. Light can also come in to our lives the same way. We have great power within us…however we must grant that greatness permission to prevail.
I am encountering an evolution, a rising up. I knew the status quo in my own life wasn’t going to cut it, but I did not know how things would change. I just knew they had to. I leapt blindly in to the future with an unknown outcome. I trusted myself, my instincts, the life I was being drawn to. I let go.
I don’t think I was that far off, but I was truly stuck, sad and afraid. Looking back I realize I had been hanging on to some nasty stuff….a little comfort, a bit of control, a lot of blame. Clinging to those negative thoughts was preventing me from being able to soar to new heights.
Suddenly life is simple.
An old acquaintance pops into my mind. I have not seen her in years. Within five minutes she is walking towards me in the post office parking lot. We have a warm exchange…touching and easy. It is meant to be.
I routinely enter my 13-year old son’s room at bedtime to deliver my ritual tuck-in and kiss on the cheek. He softly mentions to me a text that was forward to him… “Mom, it is mean.” A middle school girl is hurting. My son is comforting a friend. I feel oddly calm as he comes up with his own solution. I am proud of him. I realize he is so trustworthy, and will absolutely be an excellent adult. I then go up to my bedroom to study my coaching lesson for track the next day (I help out with a girls’ team). The topic for the next day is “cyberbullying.” The girl who sent the ugly text is in my care that afternoon. The words come, the support is there…everything flows. Instead of being worried, I just travel through the day. It unfolds in a caring manner for all the students involved.
I wake up another morning delightfully thinking about all the upcoming holiday events my children will participate in. It is a precious time of year for the Little Messengers. I have been meaning to send those important dates to my mother-in-law. She is such a great support and gracious Grandma. I am so grateful she adores my little people as much as I do. I look at my calendar…Boy Scout Court of Honor, Gymnastics holiday show, but when is my daughter’s piano recital? I text the music teacher a quick question. Hours later she responds with “The place said no. I’m stymied and looking for a new venue.” I happen to have stopped by my church at that moment, helping a friend with some writing. I check with the secretary…the only date left open for sanctuary use is the date she needs…December 19th. done. scheduled. We are all blessed!
Life is precious and falling into place.
These are just a few of many Serendipitous moments I am taking in….more than I can ever remember before!! And they are compounding daily. I think they have always been there…available to me
THE LESSON: Life is so much about ALLOWING. I am finally granting these powerful moments to outstretch. I am only the tiniest part of a greater solution. And geesh…this is so much easier than trying to solve the worlds’ problems on my own!! The Universe steps in. All I have quietly done is become aware. It is a bit like tuning in to your favorite radio station. Quite enjoyable.
I am thinking we should all choose Serendipity.
