// Just like that! //
I have had a few incidences this week that would qualify as GREAT luck to some people. However, I know that it is time, MY time. Long story short, I first had to go to a doctors appointment earlier in the week. I forgot the time, so I called the office the day before and the receptionist told me my appointment was scheduled for 11am. So imagine my surprise when I showed up at the office at 10:45 and I was told that my appointment was actually at 1pm.
I did not argue, I did not explain the mistake that was made, I simply sat down in the lobby and pulled out my book to enjoy. I was going in for a GYN exam because I had been diagnosed with stage 1 cervical cancer 3 years ago, that is now in remission. I never know what procedures I am going to need, so I bring a book to distract me from what is usually painful and uncomfortable. Unbeknownst to me, my nurse called my doctor to see if she could see me earlier than planned and the answer was “YES!” The best part was yet to come! Not only did I not have to wait, but when my doc got there, she informed me that I no longer needed the invasive procedures of the past. I was given a clean bill of health!
The next day, I awoke and called my sister, she was in the process of getting her long form birth certificate to apply for her passport. Now this has been on my to do list for 3 years! I was so inspired by her, that I jumped up and took the 1 hour drive to the city to pick up my birth certificate. Not having this birth certificate was the only thing standing in my way of having a passport. The thought of sitting in a government building waiting while an automated system spouts out numbers just grinds my spirit into non action. When I arrived, every thing about the process was so easy. I found parking in a snap and that is no easy feat in DC. I was in and out of the office in under an hour! Everyone from the security at the front of the building, to the government workers who processed my request were more than pleasant! I was just elated with my experience.
The next morning, I stayed committed to my course of action and called the nearest post office to schedule an appointment to apply for my passport. All I heard the postal worker ask was “How is today at noon?” I was like, “That’s super!” And it was.
What I experience and understand is when I trust and believe myself; I align my spirit for the results of my endeavors to be positive and easy.
Now have I had other moments like this? Yes, I have. But the difference is I was not open to the possibility of my life being easy from that point on. Now I am.
I choose ease.
I choose ease without hesitation or reflection.
I choose me.
Until next time, MY time.~z
