I know I haven’t written in a short while but lately, I’ve been questioning the universe and its motives. Yesterday at the 140 characters conference in Los Angeles I twisted my knee and fell down the stairs. A week ago, I sprained my back and a month before that I got a foot injury.
Yesterday as I was laying there waiting to be picked up and taken to a safe spot, I thought of my Tai Chi instructor from college, Carlos. I came to see him in his office after I had fallen, gotten dizzy and passed out, and been bitten by a spider all within a week. He simply laughed and said the universe had a strong message for me and I had better pay attention. During that time, the message was clear. I needed to be more open and accepting of the people around me and let them in.
As I’m getting older, the messages are getting harder to decipher as I continue to make changes in my life. Did I do something wrong? Is there something I need to let go? Is there something I’m missing? I can’t see what it is and I’ve thought about this for a few days now even taken a break but that break usually leads to another catastrophe. So universe, this is my plea. How about giving me a little more time to sort this out? Or is this a life and death matter? If so, how about a little hint? Or is it staring me in the face and I just don’t know it? Either way, please stop hurting me. I need my foot, my back, and my knee intact. I really don’t want to be bedridden sorting out the details of my life.
