The photo you see below is my giant suit case strapped to the back of a giant tow truck.
Two weeks ago I was heading from my event in San Diego CA to Phoenix AZ to speak and offer my workshop at the Awakened Woman Convergence.
I was an hour south of Phoenix when I noticed a rattling noise.
Then I noticed the water light came on.
And finally I saw the engine temperature on my dashboard all the way over to “Hot”.
My car overheated.
Scared and shaky, it was pitch black outside with no town in sight, so I pulled up my GPS and noticed the nearest gas station was 12 miles away.
I decided the safest thing to do was attempt to keep driving to get to a gas station. That was a mistake.
My car ended up dying on the side of a desert highway, smoke coming from my engine.
Once I stopped freaking out and called AAA, I began thinking of all the blessings while waiting for my tow truck to arrive.
- I have cell phone reception!
- It’s not cold! (This was a giant blessing especially since 1. I’m a total wimp in the cold, and 2. I was wearing a short mini, tank top, and flops… and I couldn’t get my suitcase out of the trunk since the electrical failed and you can only open the trunk with the button on the key)
- W.O.W. I haven’t seen stars like this in a long time!
- Wait… is that a tarantula?!?!? ohhh… just a shadow… phew!
My tow truck driver, Dustin, is one of the nicest souls on the planet, although I could tell his work had hardened him.
Since that moment when I melted my engine (yes… that’s what happens when you keep driving your car once it has overheated….) I have experienced one blessing right after the other, despite the fact that my car STILL ISN’T FIXED and it’s been 2 weeks.
As you can see from my photos below… life is filled with such sweetness, even amidst the sour.
Finding the blessings and gratitude in every situation, especially the less-than-ideal ones, changes your biochemistry and changes your brain. Not to get all woo-woo, but I think it aligns you with Universal Energy. And when you can flow your life in alignment with that energy, magic and miracles transpire.
