So yesterday morning I opened up the junk drawer in my kitchen to leave money for the cleaning crew and I came across this random picture of my dad at one of the last holiday parties we were at together before he passed. I picked up the picture and looked at it. I was mesmerized by him and shocked that this picture was in this drawer. I didn’t think too much about it, but loved that it was there.
Fast forward to last night when I came home from work and saw what looked like a book package. I started to think if I had ordered a book… Then realized… It was MY book!!! The book that I had written! I wasn’t expecting it. I thought it would be here later in the week. I was SO excited! It looks beautiful. Seeing my work in print, with my photo on the back was mind blowing!
Later that evening I was sitting in the tub, reflecting on my night, my life and how everything had come to fruition. I thought back to the very first day I put it out there that I wanted to be an author. I didn’t even know why! I wasn’t a writer, I never journaled (for more than a few days), but I had this overwhelming compelling feeling that I needed to write a book! Several books, actually.
On my very first vision board, I had listed books that I would write. I always wondered, who would actually buy my books? I needed to become successful before anyone would want to actually read one of my books. I mean I had had much success in my life, but nothing ever lasting and not something that someone would pay to read. Then I had lost it all, and was single and broke. I had put it out there in that very moment that I wanted the Universe to show me where I belong. To put me on a path that I would have great success and my books would sell and here we are!
In that moment, I thought of my dad and how much I missed him. An overwhelming feeling of love came over me and I realised he was here with me the whole day! He WAS SO proud of me! He showed up to me this morning. This random picture that was in the drawer, wasn’t random at all. It was placed there strategically by his energy force! He was right there with me filling me with so much love.
I burst out in tears. Thank you papa! Thank you for being here with me right now. Thank you for loving me! Thank you for my life! Thank you for the sacrifice of your life in order for me to become who I am. I realize now the suffering my dad went through was for me to grow. I realized my dad lived past his life expectancy until I found my spiritual path. I understand now that energy can never be destroyed, it can only change form and so I fully understand that he is here with me, guiding me, loving me, proud of me.
So grateful for this moment. This moment of peace and calm. This moment of feeling unconditional love and knowing that my work is going to help so many and share SO MUCH LOVE with this entire world! I am so grateful for 31 Days of Gratitude. Thank you for being a part of my journey. Thank you for your support!
If you’ve lost a loved one, know that they are here with you. You can call upon them. They are always sending us messages, and signs. Feathers, coins, birds, numbers are all signs from the heavens. You are loved. You are not alone.
I am so excited to announce the Official Launch Event for my new Interactive Journal, “31 Days of Gratitude-Create the Life You Desire”! Read on for information about this Charity Book Launch Party, I really hope you can attend!
