This blog post is dedicated to my son Joshua. You might know him as Josh. You might not even know him. What is important here is the story of how Joshua was true to himself.
He has had me yapping at him for 29 years about being true to yourself, following your heart, listening to your intuition. Add layers of trust your inner knowing, don’t act from anger, don’t decide from a place of fear, and toss in a good dose of you are supposed to be happy, and you get a dang good idea of what he gets on a regular basis. This week was the big payoff!
About two months ago he was asked to do something for his job that he didn’t really enjoy, but he did it. For a month, he traveled and worked in a location that was anti everything Josh. He got angry and cranky. Little appetizer conversations showed up letting him know there was a lot of opportunity for him to move up if he transferred in that direction. Think about it they said. He did, and he got crystal clear. He likes woods, and trees and the ocean. He likes being able to have some time to himself. He didn’t want to work in an urban location. He felt good about his clarity. Then the Universe, with its George Carlin sense of humor, said “Let’s Play!”.
Here kid! Here’s a job opportunity that is in the place you don’t want to be, but a title and salary that will make you feel special!
And he said NO. Lightening fast. NO. Because all of the fancy frosting didn’t change the fact that the big picture was a muck cake.
Then something really, really magical happened. He felt fantastic! He felt empowered! He decided to use the way THAT clarity and alignment with self felt, and start applying it to other areas in his life that needed some clearing up. He was a witness to the process – and got it, and in a big KaBOOM way. He recognized that he had been recognized, and the right opportunity will show up. It’s on its way.
There was a song he had enjoyed for a while, but it was just music. This week it became his theme song.
