It always amazes me to witness just how powerful it is to unabashedly ask for what I want and then go ahead and get it. There are powers at work much like a check out register; bring the desired item to the belt, ring it through and take it home. The funny thing there is that occasionally I take the wrong item off the shelf and end up wanting to go back to return it while other times I actually manage to get the exact thing I asked for and skip home with it under my arm.
Regardless of our personal feelings on the outcome of our requests, if we really examine it, the Universe always gives us exactly what we asked for. A good example of this is saying we just do not want to go to work and then on the way get in a car accident that doesn’t leave us with a single injury but instead places us in the repair shop until about 5:00 PM. What a sense of humor that Universe has. We certainly did not have to go to work but definitely would have chosen something else to do with our day besides pay for car repairs. It is this kind of thing that makes me remember the phrase ‘be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.’
Yesterday I got exactly what I wished for and then some and I plan to giddily skip with it all over my neighborhood for a long time to come.
About two weeks ago I pointedly said to Matt that I wanted to find a way to get paid to blog for a living. No strings, no explanation, just get paid to blog because it was the style I loved to write the most. We quickly moved on to another topic and I basically forgot I had said it but the Universe imbibed that statement while I was not looking and hiccupped on the bubbles. I was sitting in my office a few days ago and decided to get over to The Morning Coffee, a freelance writers pot of gold and what did I see posted there but an assignment to get paid to write for an up and coming environmental blog. The position would require the blogger to locate, interview and post on artists who use green practices. Ba-boom.
Welcome to the Universe, feel free to leave your tray tables down because there will be no bumps on this ride.
The emails went back and forth between the blog administrator and me and as of this morning I have my first feature blog posted on The Organic Mechanic titled Alternative Solutions for Shredded Paper. She and I both know that it will be a slow and steady process to drive traffic to this blog but I am hoping that all of you will at least check it out and hopefully bookmark it as well to return for some amazing artist features (written by me of course!) as well as fantastic style, design and simple tips on ways to incorporate green living into our lives. I am required to post a minimum of ten blogs per month so there will be a lot of activity between myself and the other contributors.
Above and beyond being paid to do this I am just so pleased to be part of something like this where I can provide information for how to live green and help save our planet. It is truly a blessing and a joy to be doing this ♥
