I have been working very hard for the last couple of months on a project proposal to work with the military on a program for military spouses. As is my habit, I’ve been eating, sleeping, breathing, thinking, and talking about almost nothing else for quite a while (well, I might have talked about a few other things…)
During my deep blue funk of the past couple of weeks, I got really down about moving forward with this program. After two months of feeling like I had the world on a string and could make anything happen, I began to feel like absolutely nothing could possibly work.
That funk started to lift over the weeekend and has gotten progressively better over the course of this week (thank goodness!)
And then today…the miracle. I don’t usually watch Oprah (the TVs in my apartment are strictly for DVDs because I don’t have cable) but I had heard that Michelle Obama would be on today’s show talking about military families. Mrs. Obama is a major proponent of programs and support for military families, so she has been on my radar as someone whom I’d like to contact. I had the opportunity to watch the show today and became completely re-inspired to move forward – not just with making the program go, but with contacting Mrs. Obama directly.
So here’s to shooting for the moon! I feel doors opening in my mind again that have been shut for the last couple of weeks. I am so aware that the Universe shows me things at exactly the moment that I’m ready to see them and not a moment earlier. Thank you Universe for the miracle of opening the door and showing me the next path. I am so grateful.
PS – If you know someone who knows someone who knew Mrs. Obama in 8th grade, I’d love to hear from you. Any path to Mrs. Obama, Mrs. Jill Biden (the 2nd lady), head honchos at the Department of Defense, or special events coordinators on military bases is fair game, so please let me know if you can help! Thank you so much.
