Make Life Happen
Don’t ya just love when the Universe sends a clear message? I’ve been pretty lazy about a few projects and haven’t been able (wanted?) to focus on them even though they get me excited simply talking about them. These horses have got legs, some of them are even saddled up, I’m just not hopping on and taking the reins for whatever reason(s).
Then I got an email from a reader asking me if it was okay for her to use a line from my memoir as a tattoo (see pic). I’ve shared part of that email below with her permission:
I wrote to you about a year ago after I read your book for the second time. I had told you about a passage in your book that struck me.
“Events in my life just seemed to happen to me. Now, however, I wanted to make life happen.”
You responded telling me about how you made lists and started making things work for you, having the universe respond. And again…it struck me.
I have that passage written down and look at it daily. It’s on the wall at work. It’s a note in my phone. I even have it written on a post it note I keep in my wallet just in case I need that reminder. I have held that phrase, that power, with me since I first read it.
… It’s become the way I try to live my life and it’s something I want to carry with me, literally, forever…
In any sense, I appreciate your words and your kindness and I genuinely appreciate you for helping me to change my life.
How nice, right? I replied to her that, of course, she could use the line. Her email came at the perfect time to remind me that I have to hop on the saddle and take the reins.
She inspired me to live by my own words:
Make life happen.
