Could it be that you are missing a good sign?
I love a good sign!
During my time as an antique dealer, I had an affinity for old rusty signs with unusual stories.
In the fall of 2012, a really fun guy past through my booth at Texas Antiques Week. He was on the hunt for cool stuff for his new bar on East 6th St., which at the time was an up-and-coming area of Austin. He liked an old rusty sign with the word Whislers on it, but didn’t commit as he walked off into the fields. At the end of the day he showed back up to purchase the sign that would become the name his new bar, Whislers.
I like to think about stories like this when I feel uncertain. The right sign will eventually appear. Or in this case, the right buyer will take the sign home.
Take a drive
Instead of getting frustrated when I experienced writer’s block this week, I put it aside for the day on Saturday.
Jeff and I drove to Austin to visit our son. As usual, we were early and had time to kill. Fortunately, I saw a sign. The Rising Sun Vineyard directional signs led us down a long dirt road that seemed a little iffy at first. Curious, we continued until it opened up to one of the prettiest drives.
Following the signs to this beautiful winery was pure serendipity.
Move towards fun
Fun is often overlooked when feeling uncertain or frustrated. Stepping away from what is on your mind allows answers to present themselves.
Roller skate, call a friend, take a drive, get out in nature, watch a funny movie, etc.
From a relaxed space, you can surrender to the mystery that allows opportunities to appear.
Getting away by taking a drive or finding fun is the first step. The second step is to believe that something magical can happen.
Enchantment is a kin to serendipity, and comes from a willingness to be touched or moved by something magical.
“To all of you who would like more excitement, pleasure, and satisfaction in your lives, please take note: Enchantment is self-serve. Opportunities abound, if you are available,” Victoria Castle.
If you were more available to the signs, what new possibilities might open up for you?
Signs are not woo-woo
Looking for magical signs to appear can seem a little too woo-woo for some. I get that!
Consider the opposite of enchantment is control. Needing to feel in control often feels graspy, and is an illusion anyways.
In my experience, the mystery of life unfolds when I choose to believe in possibilities.
Remove the fog to see the sign
If your mind-fog is too dense to step towards enchantment or fun, I can help you get clarity.
Don’t miss the signs.
It often helps to have a listening ear, one who can help you get curious about what’s blocking you.
I invite you to schedule a consultation with me. I can lead you to find more excitement and satisfaction in your life.
If you hang out with me long enough, I will convince you that your best years are ahead!
