It was a fleeting moment, in a busy day, more than five years ago.
I had just finished work, the book-keeping for my husband, and had 10 minutes to spare before picking the kids up from school.
I was perusing my inbox when an image caught my eye. I lingered on the article, a behind the scenes look at an entrepreneur’s life. It wasn’t so much her routine that interested me, it was the image of her sitting in a coffee shop working on her laptop that had me excited.
I glanced around my dusty office and cringed, I loved working in our business but book-keeping was not my thing.
I then dared to invite in possibility.
Could I work for myself doing what I love?
So began a long, slow dance with a wild and crazy dream.
A dream to not only do work that I love, but to do work that I love from anywhere in the world.
I began to hover around this idea, paying attention to what style of jobs were location independent.
Constantly wondering what I could do, paying attention to what interested me and lingering around what intrigued me.
I was putting it out there. As far-fetched as it seemed I wanted a job that could go anywhere with me, even though I had no idea what that would be or what I would do.
I wanted this idea to be a part of my life design.
I was letting the universe know, while taking action to create it.
I am often asked the question; how can I discover what I want? Where do I begin?
And my answer is this…..
Become an investigator in your own life.
Look for clues.
Notice where your attention goes, what draws you in?
Where do you linger? What do you pause on? What intrigues you?
What causes you to reflect? What problems do you want to solve?
What has you smiling? What lifts you up?
What are you grateful for? What do you want more of?
Who do you admire? What do they have you would like more of?
What energises you, feels amazing and lights you up?
Now for the exciting part.
You want it, say so.
You dream it, write it down.
You linger, stay longer.
You’re curious, investigate.
You wonder, find out more.
You crave, then ask for it.
You yearn, lean in.
You ponder, go deeper.
You desire, say yes.
Put it out there, set an intention and keep moving toward it.
Let the universe know what you want, play with possibility and dance wholeheartedly with your dreams.
This your one great life make a juicy wish, and go for it.
