The other day my husband and I were discussing a large purchase he is considering making. As we were talking about it, I had a realization. I’ll do anything for my husband, I’ll do anything for my son. I empower clients every day to take EXCELLENT care of themselves. And simultaneously, I became aware that I’m having this conversation with him on an old sofa that I’ve wanted to upgrade for a LONG while now. I realize that it is sometimes easier for me to support a large purchase for my husband, send our son to private school, etc. than to purchase a new sofa for myself!
As I shared my insight with my husband, I felt his compassion.. I felt his understanding… I felt his love… I felt seen.
I knew in that moment that it was time to stretch. It was time to do something for myself.
Cut to… 48 hours later, on my way home from my morning work out, Jami calls me and says “I found our sofa”! He said he walked in and it was like there was a neon sign over this sofa with my name on it! Sure enough… just my style, little shabby chic, rounded armed sofa AND chair were calling my name just waiting for me to receive them! And here I am, sitting on my comfy sofa, giving thanks as I write this…
… Like a little wink of support from the Universe!
It just goes to show that we are all supported by a friendly Universe that is always seeking to give to us, if we only allow it and are willing to receive! Just a small inner shift is enough to communicate receptivity to the Universe that is always poised to give to us!
Is there an inner shift that you are willing to make? How are you being called to stretch today? How are you being called to do something loving for yourself today? How can you take care of yourself like you take care of others? How can you receive today? How is the Universe seeking to support you? What is one small step you are willing to take for yourself?
