All the things I had been asking for recently were coming to me effortlessly and I was ecstatic. Or so I thought.
The last few weeks have been a non stop hamster wheel of going, going, going and it's soooooooooo not my style.
Daily, I was jumping through corporate hoops back and forth with boatloads of paperwork that had deadlines, extensive background checks, references and more only to find out about a policy I wasn't comfortable with and had to make the hard decision to walk away.
Freya, my beautiful puppy that stole my heart ended up NOT being a fit for my family after all due to a prey drive that sent my beloved cat Sebastian into emergency surgery ending with 33 stitches. I had to make the incredibly hard decision to surrender her back to the rescue and cried the whole way home after my husband and I dropped her off with a foster family in Massachusetts on Thursday 3/2/23 - yes that's 3223 and in numerology it means personal growth while encouraging you to reach out for help when needed while remaining open to new opportunities that come your way all while knowing your angels are always guiding you through the challenges that arise on your path. 😳 WOW!
After sitting with all the situations that I was currently experiencing I realized what a blessing NOT taking this job nor having a new puppy meant in the long run and the sadness and disappointment began to fade.
This past weekend, at our Grand Opening, I was fully booked sharing soul readings for people both Friday and Saturday and I just knew. THIS is where I am meant to be!!! And it would not be possible with that job nor that pup.
When one door closes, whether you choose to shut them or they are shut for you, another opens. I am now focusing on what's possible for the future and completing the course, Catapult into Consciousness that I was in the process of creating that got pushed to the side.
In that moment I saw it all as a hidden blessing and it got me thinking of how many other experiences in my life actually could fall into this category instead of where I might have put them? Hmmmmmm, just a fleeting thought I had but makes you wonder doesn't it?
How many times has something you wanted not come to fruition and it's actually a hidden blessing and not what you perceived it to be at the time? Makes you wonder doesn't it.
So here's to the unknown and trusting the journey even when you don't fully understand it as you're in it. If you are open to discovering your truth you may just find you have a lot of hidden blessings after all.
