I couldn’t even dream of explaining to you how many different people’s lives I’ve touched by doing something so natural to me. In turn how my life has blossomed into the richness that it is. Sadly some people would consider me half crazed if I would just appear out of no where and tell them I just had a feeling or I just knew I was supposed to call them. I’m thankful for the people I have in my life though that believe in me enough to believe my silliness. My best of friends would just say that I live in Mandaland, because I think differently and I don’t see things like a “normal” person would… whether that being a product of being raised in a Cult or because I was born to be wired differently I’ll never know.
I was thinking of this yesterday when I was giving away coupons on Facebook. Someone had placed a comment to the pain relief coupon and I had this feeling or this thought, “I should send them something.” And not thinking about whether or not others may think it’s unfair to randomly choose individuals to send things to without a random.org button I wrote that I would like to send something to their husband. (I did choose the winner of the coupon based off random.org) I wasn’t aware at the time that the woman’s husband had scoliosis and had issues so bad sometimes they couldn’t work. I just knew it was ‘placed on my heart’. Sometimes it’s simple things like that or sending my now new blogger friend Cindy something from her Amazon wish list, finding an old friend like my friends Angie and Christina… or making this blog which is finally coming together.
Today I am going to ask you to listen to your heart no matter how silly or how inane it may seem. If you have a feeling to take a pencil with you to work you may just find you happened to need one later. If you have an urge to call a friend even though you may not have spoken to them in a year, maybe they need someone right now. Maybe you have a feeling to apologize for something you didn’t even know you did wrong and maybe that heals an open wound in another’s life. Or who knows… like me you could have a feeling to sit in an exact seat in a particular coffee house and someone at that coffee house might get it in their heart to randomly message the strange girl (that was myself in a new city) sitting all alone and you could wind up with a friend for life. (That one is for Jameskitty. /smiles)
Just listen. Sometimes our hearts whisper.
