I love this quote. I always know when it’s time for a new beginning. It’s consistent in that it unfolds like a fairytale. It’s not forced, it feels peaceful and right and the signs are consistently there. That’s how suddenly I know it’s time.
Before moving to Georgia, I traveled every other week to interview for a job. As I traveled from Nashville to Atlanta I would see Georgia license plates and almost every single one of them was from Gwinnett county. Out of 159 counties, I would consistently see Gwinnett.
When I landed a job, it was in Gwinnett county at a dealership called Gwinnett Place. As I traveled almost 30 miles one way to work, I noticed a lot of Toyota vehicles, more than any other manufacturer. When I decided to make a job change due to travel time, I asked my customer who was in the automotive industry where they’d go if they were me. They recommended only one dealership and it was a Toyota dealership. That Toyota dealership became my next source of income for 3 years.
I could go on and on about the signs I have been given showing me my next beginning. It’s only when we are aware and not distracted that we can see the signs. Being distracted by focusing on things that we cannot change or control will cause us to miss our signs and possibly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
And the people that have come into my life to point me in the right direction could fill a book. While at Toyota, I met a coworker who became a close friend. Because of her, I moved to the city. Remember when I say people don’t always look like you, think like you or believe like you to guide you? She is a perfect example. We are complete opposites but she guided me to a new chapter in my life.
Once you have experienced and embraced the signs, listening to your intuition, and welcoming it as opposed to dismissing it, it gets easier and easier to allow the next chapter to unfold. It will feel right and you’ll know it’s so right for you that no matter if those around you agree or support your decision, you’ll move forward without a stamp of approval. You’ll know to trust the magic you feel to start new beginnings.
