Lessons of 2017: The Halfway Mark

My 40th year on the planet started off with a bang. It has also brought about some lessons that keep me afloat on a daily basis. I think my favorite one is wanting something that does not happen. We often focus on what we want out of life. We won’t get everything that we want, and that is a good thing. When this happens, it is because it was not the best fit for us or something better is right around the corner. This is a good indication that in many cases, when a situation becomes too hard to manage, sometimes it is best to simply walk away. It was not supposed to work. That is the correct outcome. Why? Ultimately, it benefits you.

OFFICE DEPOT VS. OFFICE MAX: THE MORAL

It has been approximately six months since I looked into getting a numerology report completed on my various life cycles. While studying myself, it is important to gather as much information as possible. I felt it was time to finally take care of it due to the fact that my inner circle was saying the same things; when different sources say the same thing, heaven is speaking loudly. After the consultation, I had 86 pgs. worth of information to analyze, highlight, and digest. It needed to be in a book that could be easy to manage.
Office Depot was on my path today; however, the long line discouraged me. I decided to crawl home for a nap and would return later. When I did return, the associate informed me that it would not be possible for me to get the book made today. A pause began when I realized that it would be necessary for me to ask when it could be completed if I expected any further information. While driving on the main road, my mind thought how strange the interaction was. There wasn’t a willingness to accept my money. There was an assumption that my shadow would darken that doorstep again. The decision had been made. Office Max was about to have a new custome in spite of the fact that it was even farther away than office Depot.
The associate asked me a couple of questions. Five minutes later, she returned with my beautiful report in a book. As my card went through the reader, I told her that Office Depot told me to return the next day. She returned my smile and said that the statement made her entire day. The moral of my story is that when I want something, I am going to have it one way or another. Use the resources that are available. My shrewd aquarian friend is fond of saying that you have to use what you have to get what you need. That is the lesson that I learned today.
