I always try to surround myself with positive and ambitious people. My friend Courtney is one of those people..
She’s a hustler. Fitness expert and nutritionist– I just love her energy. I met her in LA and we clicked right away. She was only in my life for a few months before relocating to Cabo San Lucas with her now husband. I even went to visit her for my birthday.
Her house was up against the ocean…literally. House, rocks…ocean. WOW.
We talk all the time and I’ve been running around like a mad woman trying to get things squared away before I leave but I wanted to take some time to Skype with her today. Glad I did…always glad I do. She is all about nutrition and yet, I love that she doesn’t judge me as I tell her I’ve been stress eating and stuffing my face with doughnuts, cake, and anything else that will go straight to my thighs.
As we log in and begin conversation, her bright smile on the screen, she says, “Are you getting excited??!!”
I thought- “Excited?” Why would I be excited about what’s happening?
She saw the look on my face and followed up with: “You wished for this!”
Then she broke it down… “You did Lo. You put your dreams out there to the Universe and they are coming true. Remember, the Universe doesn’t tell you HOW you are going to get to your dreams…all you need to know is that you WILL get to your dreams. This is part of your journey.”
Damn. Powerful, insightful. I paused…and realized she was right. I don’t know what I was so worried about. I wanted this…and as she said “wished for it.” Sure, it’s not how I imagined it would go but I’ll get there…and this is just part of how I will.
When we decide to send out our dreams and desires into the Universe, we don’t need to know the path. Whether it’s the Universe for you or God, the path is ours to be on, but not ours to decide if it’s going to be a windy, steep, or straight one. It’s not up to us to decide how it will manifest. It will ultimately lead us to where we are supposed to be…to accomplish those dreams that make us feel whole and full of purpose.
Weird how that works huh?
Cheers to us…cheers to our dreams.
