There are all kinds of people in the world. Some believe that every little thing that happens is a sign from the Heavens and nothing occurs by chance or coincidence. At the other end of this spectrum are those who think everything is random and there is no reason or meaning for anything and everything that happens is totally random. You can figure out for yourself which person you are, but I want to tell you a little about what I think.
This morning I woke up feeling all the pressure of running my own business. It's nearly the end of the month and I have not quite reached all the goals I set for myself. I've been working my butt off to grow my business but every day that passes adds a little more stress than the day before. I didn't sleep well last night and today I was feeling the slight tremors of a potential landslide of doubt.
It's crazy how our emotions can fluctuate from hour to hour. I began my day doing all I could to reach out to contacts and mentor my coaches. But I felt irritable and nothing was really calming the storm brewing right under the surface. I decided to take a break and get some fresh air and get my training run in. It was beautiful outside and gave me some moments of gratefulness...but also gave me a whole hour to stress about the biz. I decided to run down to the post office to try and clear my head and there it was...
Among the bills and junk mail and magazines was a letter from my coach/mentor, Becka Robinson. It was an encouraging note and it meant the world to me because it came at the perfect time, exactly when I needed it. It also was exactly what i needed to hear to give me perspective and motivation to keep going. It's these little moments that can set epic things in motion. I still have some work to do to meet my goals in the next few days but I know I am not alone in this journey and there are people who believe in me. It added a little wind to my sails and now I am going to do my best to finish strong.
So, while I don't believe that every little thing is a sign from the universe, it's sure cool how the Lord works in mysterious ways. So to anyone else out there struggling... Hang in there.
