the streak

I think I’m still on this good luck streak as things keep falling into place. The timing is still right and opportunities are coming up and from unexpected places too.

This photo is actually an advocacy photo I took part of for HIV awareness and prevention but I'm putting it here anyway because of the word "Acceptance." In the advocacy, it is meant more for people to be more accepting of HIV and to deal with it as a medical and health issue and not a moral issue -- but for this blog post, I want this to be about acceptance of who you are and what you deserve and what the universe chooses to give to you.

There really is something to be said about working hard and knowing what you deserve and being willing to accept the blessings that come your way. There is something to be said about trusting the great big unknown and trusting your gut. There is something to be said about doing everything that you do to do the best of your ability and doing it because you love doing it and it will come back to reward you — if not immediately, then at a later time.

Because that’s what I think I did and what I do and I feel that the thing that can be said about it is that it is true.

I just got a text today that gives me a 50% chance to attend a marvellous opportunity for me to meet more people of like-minds, in a wonderful event, and in a magical location. If it pushes through (there’s still a 50% chance that it won’t), my world will open up again and, on a different perspective — it will give me a chance to get my name out there in a way that puts my work front-and-centre. It will be about my work and not anything else.

And this is all due to the work I’ve put in and how much of myself I put into the work and the relationships I have nurtured and cared for. This isn’t some spontaneous and random bit of grace that just suddenly fell on my lap. This is a tree that I’ve cared for and nurtured and it grew and, every now and then, bears fruit for me.

No, I think that’s the wrong analogy to use. It sounds so self-serving and it’s not. I just did well. And this offer came to me because… I don’t know. I’m not even going to try to figure it out. I trust in the universe and I trust in what I put out into this world and I’m just happy and accepting of what I get in return.

Sorry for being so vague. I can’t divulge details just yet but if it pushes through, I won’t be able to hold back from blogging about it later on. But right now, I’m just still feeling the wonderful sense of joy and gratitude.

I am grateful. This is a wonderful thing. I’m happy and I just feel that the happiness is attracting more and more happiness into my life.
