I want to remember this day! I woke up to a beautiful sky and reminded myself to be patient.
I had been waiting for a copy of my new book, a big shipment of my new clothing designs and the right price for plane tickets. I had no idea that all three would show up on the same day!
I recently read a quote by Abraham-Hicks that said:
Don’t try to recreate peak experiences. Instead, just accept them as the gift that they are, and don’t beat up on yourself for not being able to stay there. Because if you stayed there, they wouldn’t be peak experiences. They would be normal, everyday, in time humdrum boring, experiences. So, savor the peak experiences and compliment yourself upon your achieving of them, and expect more of them, and leave everything else out of the equation.
Yesterday I remembered what a gift peak days are!
After breakfast, I got online to see what deals I could find to Europe. Derek and I are giving ourselves a BIG gift this birthday. We are going to go see all the places we talk about. It dawned on us that our business is done through the internet so why put travel off any longer?
And there it was San Diego to Albania for the best price I’d EVER seen! I grabbed the wallet and booked it before the price changed. After I received confirmation, I sat on the couch smiling…now it’s real! We are leaving January 30th and we’re going to make it the biggest adventure we’ve been on yet.
I really needed a distraction to give the mail man time to get to our place so we decided to take Charlie for a walk to Little Italy. We even stopped off at a great little market for Nutella and Mascarpone cheese just in case we wanted some crepes later.
We walked into our building just in time…
The mail lady had a big box and was getting ready to leave with it because it didn’t fit in our spot and the office manager was not in the office. Derek eyed it and I snatched it! Of course not before showing her I.D.
Derek pulled out the t-shirts, sweatshirts and sweatpants and I was so excited to see my work on me!
After finishing a phone call and settling down I remembered I never checked our box. Back down I went and there was my book! I quickly headed back up, I could hardly wait to see my baby. Once again Derek carefully opened the box and handed me my first book.
Tears instantly ran down my cheeks.
There was my heart sitting in my hands. Everything turned out beautifully. The covers were just right. The font, the spacing, everything was perfect.
I wanted to mark this day.
It was such a peak experience and I celebrated it.
And thank you for celebrating it with me. xoxo
