This week was a mixed bag of negative and positive events. I found out that I got a job...yay! It's a good position at FOX Studios. Not exactly what I want to do but a good start. I thought, "this is a positive start to my week"!
As I explained in my video, my purse was stolen on the 4th of July which put a damper on the day. Even though it was only a purse, it felt like such a violation. Without realizing it, the next day I was in a bit of a panic. I had my locks changed on my door because my house keys where in my purse. My mind was consumed with fearful thoughts. That is when I realized I needed to reground myself. I was disconnected and all over the place. I needed to center myself again. So the next day, I decided to have a total "ME" day. I went for a nice walk on the beach, drank a glass of wine while I made my favorite pasta dish, read a book and made myself concentrate on things I was grateful for. Even if the feeling isn't there initially, it will come if your thoughts are focused. As I started to feel better, I got a facebook message from a producer of a San Diego TV show. They want to have me on the show as a guest. My entire body filled with excitement. So random and fun. I thought maybe "my not leading to something things, are finally leading to something"?
Later that day, I received another facebook message from a person I had never met before. Someone put my purse on his porch and he got my name from my drivers license. I was so thrilled! I went to his house and picked it up. Everything was in it except the $15. Someone had grabbed the money and then threw it on the street. The guy told me it went to 5 different people before it got to his house. I was shocked to discover that nobody had stolen my Ray-Ban sunglasses. They were in the purse! Humans aren't as bad as I thought!
Yes, this experience was a huge inconvenience. I wasted 3 hours at the DMV getting a new license and spent a lot of money changing my locks but sometimes SHIT happens. Its all about how we react to a situation and turn things around!
