I used to think the whole vibrations/energy thing was new-age hocuspocus, but the older I get, the more opportunities I've had to experience it first-hand.
Recently I was working at LDU Coffee (my unofficial office). A guy came over to the outlet by me needing to charge his laptop and saw me looking at food photos for our website. We struck up a conversation, and I learned that he's a highly trained chef.
Not only that, but he used to be a dietician and is passionate about clean eating; he showed me albums of simple but beautiful dishes he's created from whole foods. We exchanged info to discuss a possible collaboration. Even if nothing comes of it, how serendipitous of us to meet!
There have been several other strange but fortunate occurrences in the past several months:
- Deciding at the beginning of the year that I wanted to do a little freelance work, and shortly thereafter getting both short-term and long-term freelance gigs.
- Wanting to know someone who lives in Highland Park so I have an excuse to see how these fantasy people live...and then meeting one and visiting their house.
- Needing more purpose in my training, and then getting injured the week before the Open began, which made me take a hard look at why I train and eventually served to renew my enthusiasm.
- Wanting a bike, and then Tyler almost immediately meets a guy who restores bikes and finds me the perfect one.
Who knows, these things may just be coincidences, but it's fun to think that they're happening because I'm more aligned with what I'm meant to be doing.
