I was walking the beach the other day still riding the high of having broken through a major fear of mine. I was in total gratitude and appreciation for EVERYTHING and feeling high on life! The sun was shining, birds were chirping, the crystal blue water all playing music to my ears. All of a sudden out of the blue…BAM! I stubbed my big toe on this random stepping stone half sticking out of the sand. Bruised, bloody and throbbing, I asked myself, “now why did that just have to happen?” I was going along my nice peaceful walk and out of nowhere this stone wants to have it out with my toe. And what in the world was it doing there anyway?…
Instead of getting all caught up in the “awe man that sucks, it’s probably broken,” yada woe is me, yada,…I immediately saw a beautiful message in it.
With the launch of my messenger video, I had just taken a HUGE STEP Up….A milestone moment and what could be a STEPPING STONE to bigger things.
In that moment, I welcomed the garnet blood puddle streaming down my toe. The throbbing reminded me of the adrenaline pulsing through me after I had completed and posted that video. It also reminded me that there was some pain involved with hitting that MILESTONE.
I had to put my feet in the sand, not knowing what was in front of me. It wasn’t comfortable, but I shook it off and kept going.
My big bruised toe is a welcomed reminder of how even the most beautiful paths come with obstacles along the way.
I believe it was placed there for a reason, and that reason is this post. How’s that for perspective?….
Maybe this is what it really means to have a birds eye view…. Or maybe it’s just THIS particular Bird’s eye view!
Stumbling Block?….I think NOT!
