Week 10 – Fabulous Nuggets from the Universe


Two of my friends lost loved ones during the Thanksgiving Holiday this year.  Both of them only 62.  Their dash is done.  They don’t get another day or another year to get it right.

I’ll be honest.  I’ve been at a bit of a crossroads.  I’ve been at that point where “I’ve been putting in all the work, now where’s my reward.”  And little messages have been surrounding me.

A friend of mine posted a short video on her “Women of God” fb page.  A very well-known woman minister was saying (and I’ll paraphrase here)  “God is hearing us say ‘why’.  But what we really need to be saying is I’m gonna trust you God.  I don’t understand this, this hurts, this feels like it’s going to kill me, but I trust you.   And I  believe that no matter what happens, that you can and will work it out for good if I keep my eyes on you.”

WOW!  How much did that smack me right in the middle of the forehead?  How often have I given the effort for a defined period of time and then had my hand out looking for the result.. . . looking for the evidence that I am on the right path.  When what I need to do is just stay the course, and put the faith in “something greater than myself.”

Another little message through the universe came when I stumbled on an old friend’s blog from when she first started her MKE journey.  It was fun to read where she was 6 years ago, and to appreciate that she has realized so many of her dreams today.  She stayed the course, dragged kicking and screaming sometimes, as she looked at her own resistance and old head games, but she is evidence that this $#!7 works when you work it, when you set your mind to it and do the work.  It doesn’t mean we have to be perfect – we just need to be human and to do the work.

And then came the new Chapter.   “I will persist until I succeed.”  Ok ok I get it.  Little love notes from the Universe. Stay the course.  Do the work.  I have a bright and beautiful future that I am creating right now.   And I am here to enjoy the journey, because the present is a gift that we can all choose to embrace with gratitude.

  1. There was something about your post this week that touched me. It felt raw and true to me, bringing me to tears. You’re such an extraordinary writer!


  2. Beautifully said. There is something reassuring by the idea created when you hear the words “Stay The Course.” And, “I will persist until I succeed.” It is like hearing the voices of the ages somewhere deep inside.

    I’m sorry for the loss of your friends. I found out today a friend of mine died Sat morning. She was 57. Your post touched me too.

  3. Gail,
    When someone you know is gone, or your friends, emotions cloud so much of your heart. I personally believe the Love you shared is with you both forever and can not be lost. What I see is you searching and finding meaning in the middle of the thoughts you have.
    Embrace the events at hand and the blog you read about someone else 6 years ago. The work here at the MKMMA has a lot of value, that will never be lost and you can never go back. We all struggle at times.
    I don’t see you in struggle. I see you very aware of your being and seeking more and that is to be embraced and congratulated.

    Joy, Peace & Light – BE – with you always; all ways.
