Day 215, Reason 215: Today I am so grateful to the Universe for snapping me out of feeling sorry for myself!
The day did not begin well. I didn’t sleep much, I’m still completely exhausted, generally feeling horrible and brain fog has set it – I can’t seem to talk straight, think straight or cope with anything.
I’ve been doing my best to keep positive, happy and cheerful for the past couple of weeks since my health deteriorated again, but today it has been a real struggle and if I’m honest I’ve been on the verge of tears a few times. Thoughts like – Not again! Why me? Why is this happening now when I’ve been doing so well? – kept swirling around my mind.
Then the Universe stepped in, showing me kindness and bringing me good things, even though I hadn’t exactly been keeping my side of the deal.
This morning, I discovered that I now have 265 followers on my blog (the exact number I was aiming for by the end of August.) A BIG thank you to you all! Then, this afternoon, I sold another item in my online shop, also reaching the exact target I had set myself.
AND THEN… well remember the commissioned item that didn’t turn out the way I had planned? I refunded my customer straight away and told her I would try re-designing it this week, as she wanted to wear it for an occasion in a few weeks time.
But, what with the exhaustion and the brain fog, I just can’t think creatively, so I wrote to her this evening explaining that I’m not well enough to work out the design for another piece. I felt really bad about it, but tried to just “accept what is.”
Then, just this minute, I received a reply from her saying that the occasion she wanted the piece for has been postponed until the spring and she’d still like me to make it for her when I’m feeling better.
This is the best possible outcome of the situation and something I would never have imagined would happen.
Thank you, thank you Universe for being on my side and for cheering me up no end. I promise to pull my weight and up my happy, joyful feelings from now on. 🙂
