Must share before it gets lost in my bookmarks–

This was entirely too apropos today, so I’ll consider it a wink (and perhaps also a nudge) from my good & constant friend, the Universe. You never fail to tell me what I need to know.

Trust me. And keep that conviction alive, when you do anything you need to make it happen. Write cover letters with your heart and not according to a formula, catch the eye of someone who strikes an impression, buy a ticket out of here, but not just that: send out these letters, and follow ups and ones after that and that to get what you want, approach the one you want, smile, say hello, I like you, buy a plane, train, bus ticket. Even just for a day. Even if it’s just a fantasy.
It’s a fantasy you’ll soon turn into reality. And not because it’s scientific or proven by psychological studies, not because this is what cheery false self-improvement books are made of, not because it sounds pretty and easy but because what do you have to lose just to try, to believe, to go after what you want. Because I’ve seen it happen, I’ve made it happen, and there is no muddled mind proclaiming help from higher powers or magical fulfillment, this is how it happens, and it is always how it happens. The surprises and breakthroughs, even the failures and disasters, it is all part of this. So give in to it, feed it, and feel alive.
And, trust me, soon it’ll happen. Exactly as you imagined…but better, brighter, dazzling and dizzying and with so much wonder in its every moment you’ll be marveling at the unreality of life.


I started my new job today…
