My Unexpected Gifts 07/08/2010
I love when The Universe shows up with unexpected gifts.
When I was in California at an Owning Pink gathering there was an intuitive there that asked if I had ever considered working with teenagers. In that moment I broke into tears. The very thought of being around teenagers makes me uncomfortable to say the least. I haven't exactly been able to put my finger on it, but I think it has something to do with the general concept that when you are that age you are certain you know all there is to know.
The Universe decided to give me a peak into what gifts lie in working with teenagers for me by placing a couple in my life. The first one is my sister. We took a short, but sweet trip to Austin recently and along the way had some very powerful conversations about what was going on in her life and how she might handle certain situations differently. To my surprise she tried on the advice and found that it worked out for her very well. She has called me a couple times letting me know of her success in these areas.
The fact that she was able to acknowledge the change came from her and not some outside source was very powerful for me to witness. It gave me hope in the realm that not only was there something for me to gain in working with teens, but also that they too had the ability to move past themselves and onto something better.
I will tell you more about the second person later. But I want you to know that having this person show up in my life when she did was by far the biggest surprise and gift I have received in quite sometime. I am SO looking forward to seeing where this connection takes me and others!
Thanks for being on the ride with me.
