I just had a conversation with a man I had crossed paths with at the beginnning of last year sometime. Some how I just lost touch with him for whatever reason. I have been going through a "inner battle" in regards to this business and was starting to question myself. A funny thing happened though. Without going into specifics, as soon as I we started speaking a sensation came over me. Like when you were a child and you just knew you were getting one of those BIG gifts on your Christmas list. I just knew I was supposed to be speaking with him. I was hesitant to contact him to be honest, but I said, "What the heck, what do I have to lose." The outcome of the conversation was far from what I expected. We hit it off like we did a year ago. Same beliefs, same page, coming from the same place and with the same golas in mind. Being of SERVICE and HELPING others. At that moment in that conversation that is when I felt IT, deep down in my bones. CONFIRMATION! He was telling me I AM supposed to be doing this. I AM supposed to be meeting these people. Some for the first time, some for the second time around. Meeting the bad ones to get to the good ones! I don't always know what He has in store for me and sometimes I even question if He has anything, if He hears my prayers. And then when I least expect it, BAM!!! With an instance like this He is saying, "I do hear you, I do have something for you." It makes me feel so much better. It makes my heart a little lighter, my lungs expand with a newness of air.
So I say this to anyone who may be reading my thoughts, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, EVER QUIT!! Gut it out. When you think you can't take anymore, keep reaching out, keep meeting the selfish ones, keep asking for help, keep seeking guidance. AND then double it up! He sees what you are striving for and why you are doing it. This is a journey and not a destination. Enjoy it, learn from it, grow from it. "That which does not kill us will make us stronger."
So in closing I will leave you with this; you just never know. You never know who you're going to meet, you never know where you're next deal is going to come from from, you never know what might happen tomorrow, today, later, NOW! YOU JUST NEVER KNOW!
"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again."
"IF WE DID ALL THE THINGS WE ARE CAPABLE OF, WE WOULD LITERALLY ASTOUND OURSELVES."
