In the past couple of months we were forced out of our apartment, my father passed away, I hit a telephone pole when racing on a scooter, and today my car had cardiac arrest. And I won’t even get into the aftermath of my dad’s last will and testament. It puts the soap opera “All My Children” to shame. But at the end of the day, I’m laughing.
As I told the lawyer that did the paperwork to send us packing, my grandma used to say that in times like these you can expect a blessing. So I have my eyes open waiting to see just what the Universe has in store for me.
Now to some people I might sound a little foolish. But if you look at some the big names in Hollywood you’ll see that a lot people had their hand on the dodo end of the stick when things turned around for them.
Jim Carrey lived in a van, Tyler Perry was homeless, and Samuel L. Jackson smoked crack rocks and look at them now. Now I am definitely not trying to go that route to see my miracles, but I do think there is something to their situations opening them up to receiving gifts from the heavens.
In my experience, the thing that keeps most blessings from people is not that they are not being provided for by God or the Universe. The real problem comes from their inability to receive. I’ll save how most people get into that mindset for another blog, but I think it is worth keeping in mind.
I think what happened with the people I mentioned was that they hit as low as they were willing to go and then they started looking up. As for me, I believe I don’t have to go to such extremes. I had my fair share of crap and I’m using it to fertilize my dreams with my family. So I have my lottery tickets in hand, my blog online, and enough stored up drama for sixty novels. I’ll let you know where it takes us.
