The person who’s known deep thirst & finally, at long last, tastes a refreshing drink of water …..
Or the one who's always possessed an overflowing supply?
For most of my life, relatively speaking, I had an 'overflowing supply' of vigor & vitality & physical well-being, & truth be told -- I took my health for granted. Yet, having suffered through the lack thereof over the last 4 years, I can honestly say I appreciate my body today in a more meaningful way than I ever did when climbing mountains or playing ultimate frisbee or building houses or salsa dancing on a steamy Costa Rican beach at midnight.
[On New Year's Eve, with a gorgeous Tico, no less!]
So, if you're gutting it through an intense & prolonged period of lack ($ or health or romance or family support or whatever it may be), I'm not suggesting it's easy or that you shouldn't feel ticked off or impatient or any other heavy emotions that come up. I'm saying, feel those emotions, love yourself through the hard parts -- but keep your metaphorical dancing shoes handy.
Once you're finally ready & able to put them back on, I bet you're gonna appreciate every step more than ever before.
Thursday after my bold decision, I received a letter advising I call a 1-800 number for more information about stock that was supposedly in my name. I showed my sister the letter. She laughed & said it sounded like a scam, but her logical attorney-brain dictated a phone call to check it out, just in case.
So, I called.
A friendly woman answered, I told her I'd received their letter, but hadn't bought the stock they'd mentioned.
Had I worked for a particular children's home in Georgia at any point from 1993-1997?
Yes, I had.
Well then, she said, you own stock in Blue Cross/Blue Shield, & the company's just gone public, so you can either choose to retain your stock or sell it at market price. We just need to know which you'd like to do.
How much would that be, the market price?
Five-thousand-dollars, she replied.
Magic $$$$ Is EVERYWHERE,
P.S. In other words, never allow the apparent lack of funds to dictate your life. Live your dreams. The Universe'll find a way. YE$!
Anne Lamott writes, "I get thirsty people glasses of water, even if that thirsty person is just me."
I'll start with that.
Then, I'll fill my cup with love & compassion,
even if the thirsty person's just me.
My Cup Runneth Over,
I might be totally panicked, scaring myself silly that they won't, but things always DO work out, for my highest & best good. This is a Universal Truth I've seen proven time & again.
Even so, I often find myself requiring evidence in advance that things WILL work out before I fully allow myself to breathe, relax, enjoy life. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to grasp -- living in this manner = a perpetual, worrisome-waiting-uneasy existence.
I ask myself -- Since THINGS ALWAYS WORK OUT, why not start relaxing & breathing & enjoying the working out NOW, along the way, instead of waiting for the proof that inevitably shows up, when it's meant to?
Thank you Ani! I know many people are dealing with the very same issue. I love how you put this to words, and how you created a beautiful intention with your healing. If only more people were so wise and generous with their spirit. Much love to you as you inspire me once again to be more. Love, Marnie
I lovelove you, beautiful Ani Bell-ah! Been traveling! In-country now (did you catch my So. Africa photo album on Fb?) How's next Thursday, the 8th for us to connect via voice? Aalso, Im travelling thru Livingston either the 10th or 11th of November...will you be there then?
Love these messages, my favorite life-coach, good ju-ju guru! Singing your praises, too! Reminds me of an Abraham quote I've never forgotten: When you are clear on what you want and open to receiving it, the Universe will stand on its head to give it to you! Happily receiving...it's just the BEST isn't it?
Wow, you just continue to amaze me, EVERY SINGLE TIME with what I saw in you the very first time - a shining so bright, all I could think was "I want THAT!" And you've been giving it to me ever since. Thoroughly LOVED our time together in May and the gift you gave at the spa place. Since I had to miss Yellowstone last time, CLEARLY I will be coming again -- but mostly to connect with Miss Ani, the sun and moon and stars bright woman, so we can share our brightness and light us up some world!
Ahhhh. Go WEST young WO-man! I may be coming to the Pacific Northwest for a women's retreat April 23 next year. Mark your calendar as I'll be lookin' for you!
Sending exceptionally comforting and perfect healing energy for the surgery. Bless bless bless & bliss bliss bliss. Love you.
Finally got back here - yum yum yummy yum yum! I kinda almost DROOLING over the prospect. YEAH, Baby, let's do it! AND, let's wait until it's definitely warmer!! :>)
Sunny! Sounds like a fabulous goal to me! Let's start dreaming. Oh, we can go to the hot springs! We can walk along The Yellowstone! We can eat yummy food! We can dance at The Farmer's Market! [Don't be afraid, everybody does it. There's a band & a dance floor.] We can sit & talk & talk & laugh & talk some more. I can do a reading for you! Heck! We can have a coaching fiesta! We can watch the stars at night in The Paradise Valley. We can both sleep like contented little babies, knowing our days have been filled with love & joy & peace & FUN. All freely offered, from my heart to yours. Sound good? :)
Hey miss divine-sparkly being. Wish I could see you IN PERSON! Hmmm, guess I could make a trip north a goal for 2015. How 'bout it?
Sitting here, profoundly grateful for you and for our Tribe. Be blessed ALL!
Jenn! & Debbi! Thanks so much to both of you for your sweet comments. Kinda made my day. :) I love it that our Tribe is coming together, connecting, chatting... My vision is building a vibrant Tribe of BellaWorld Peeps, each of us, together, learning to thrive-thrive-thrive! YES!
Hi Ani, I am so pleased to have you as my neighbor. Knowing you personally, you are a delight. You are a perfect example of Divine love. ~Blessings ~Debbie:)
Ani, my Accidental Sister, yes, we are both doing better than we give ourselves credit. As we heal not only from the physical injury but also the throes of ptsd, it becomes a matter of moments... Living each, trusting the process, and embracing whatever sliver of hope remains (sometimes hope fills the moment and is depleted the next)... A roller coaster with little control except how we choose to ride it - rising, dropping, turn by turn... some moments we can only hang on trusting the lap bar as the only safety feature! But we do hang on, and we do find hope, search for light in complete darkness, and use those rays of light to grow. I've learned and been so comforted by you! That's no small feat my dear... only a strong person can do that. YES, you are AWESOME! Love you
thanks sunny. made it thru....am doing my best sparkle today, new cast and ALL. :)
