For some reason the news of Jim Flaherty today really saddened me. Here was a man who had not even been retired for 6 weeks. Had not even had a summer to enjoy after a very long, cold, snowy winter in the National Capital Region. Gone.
And then the audiobook I was listening to on the way home somehow managed to come to a point where it talked about the difference between people who love what they do for a living and the fate of those who live a life where earning $ working is a means to an and of some unknown uniqueness.
This too struck a chord…a powerful chord…
It seemed as though reminders were there everywhere encouraging me to keep on with the activities I do love (like writing here!) and to follow through on the ideas that really speak to me in a visceral sense. I am thankful for reminders like this to help me live a life of goosebumps every day. To be an advertisement for the motto “The better it gets the better it gets. Good things are always coming my way! The Universe has my back!”
I am happy for Jim to have found peace, and I am sure the Universe has his back to. I’m also happy to have found such a happy place inside myself that helps all my ‘work’ to be satisfying and inspiring (because I have the tools now to create myself as satisfied and inspired).
I am so very grateful and I wish this way of BEing for all who feel called… And I know that the creating for me has only just begun. I have met so many fun and fantastic people living very creative and juicy lives in the last couple of years that I have begun dreaming even more for myself and my loved ones! That is very powerful indeed. Thank you for the reminders dear Universe.
