Something Great Happened Because I Expected It

If you think life is being unfair, try doing something out of the ordinary to move yourself in a positive direction toward your true happiness.

Doing something different
Today, I did something I've never done before. I submitted an article as a guest post to Self Empowerment Magazine. In the past, I would practice modesty and was always afraid that my work wasn't good enough to ever be featured. I hid my work behind empty feelings that held me back from what I knew I deserved. I think in some way, I just wasn't ready for it or I would have been putting my work out on the table long before now.

Feeling something different
Today, however, I did something a little differently. I can tell you that this was no simple task. I typed up the article, spell checked at least a dozen times, and then I stared at it for about 30 minutes while I decided whether or not to press the send button. The keys on my keyboard glistened in sweat, but this time the fear came from a  different place. It was actually more of a strange, 'I feel out of place' kind of feeling more than just fear. I felt empowered and I received more than what I expected. 

Getting something different
I felt in my soul that this was to be a part of my path to happiness and I just let go. I submitted the article and stopped thinking about it. I felt sincere about allowing the universe to fulfill my desire and it happened in a way I never thought possible. I submitted the article hoping for a simple listing, but it turned out the site owner wants me to write regularly as a featured author! That was the most awesome news of the day and I'm convinced that you get exactly what you expect out of life. You just have to take the first step and allow the change to come to you. 

You can read my first article as a featured author here on Self Empowerment Magazine
