“And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.”
“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”
-Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Sometimes the universe conspires to inspire you. Make sure you don’t miss the universe speaking to you. I was planning to do my usual stair climb of 4 to 7 flights at the beach. After my 4th flight I suddenly notice these hash marks on the concrete at the top of the stairs for the very first time. Someone obviously counting their flights on another day. I had passed them numerous times before without ‘seeing’. I took this discovery as a subtle challenge and encouragement that I could do more. Today, I did 10 flights, 1560 steps. My personal best.
On the way back to my car, I met Frosty (68 years young) who just finished his 7th bike ride across America. After speaking to him I am inspired that I can do even more. Thank you universe for encouraging me in such delicate ways. I saw “the most extraordinary things” that were placed in my path. Grateful!
