OK so today’s status=happy! I just ordered room service and it looks delicious! I finished eating it and not three seconds later the darn fire alarm goes off! BAM! Just like that I shove my boots on, grab my room key and run down to get myself to the lobby. When I got to the lobby, I first asked if this was for real. It was but, not actually for a fire….just a water pipe. (THANK GOODNESS!)
There have been many firsts this trip for me. Since I have not had my bag all week I have been forced to wash my undies and socks in the sink of my hotel. I blew them dry with a hair dryer. check. I also have sparked and met so many wonderful people in such a foreign place. I have had many of spiritual experiences that I could not have had anywhere else. I am so blessed. I got to bond with some wonderful women that I would have never met had I not got stranded. I ordered ROOM SERVICE! Yes, that was a first. I talked with some gentlemen around the bar about politics and morals and that was definitely a first! AND most of all I fended for myself. I made it and I did it. I busted out of my sheltered shell and I had a great few days vacation! I was placed here with a bigger purpose. Bigger than me for sure.
Now I enjoy my coffee. Relaxing and listening to Spoon. Here have a tastes courtesy of http://www.youtube.com: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaqWSGenyE0.
I now understand a few things that I would have never understood before if I had not just gone thru what I did. There are many people who are bright souls. Listen to your instinct and be kind to everyone. You never know what is up in their world. You always will be blessed with kindness if you give and recognize kindness. Recognize as equal as you do the GOOD, the BAD as well and rebuke it. For it is when you recognize and rebuke the evil that you are able overcome and have a deeper understanding of where you stand and ultimately love.
Today I recognize my roots. I am grounded. I am beautiful and I am me. Nothing about that is anything less than wonderful and amazing. I want to be in good light so that I might touch more people’s lives in a POSITIVE way. I love those who surround me with light and love and for those who don’t…you are still in my heart. 🙂
“Everything at this very moment is beautiful. Everything right at this moment is turned from chaos to peace. I recognize I am only human but thru listening to my instinct, my heart and soul and most of you almighty God my life will continue to forever change into light and of love. Grant me with wisdom and understanding toward all of those that come in and out of my life and that I might not know of their situation.”

Terrific post that matches your amazing experience this week. It was fate that let you eat your room service meal also before the alarm went off!
I wish I had been stranded in the same hotel as you. I would have even fetched the coffee for us to share beside the pool.
I would have loved to have you sitting and relaxing beside me…you definitely wouldn’t have been fetching the coffee! Nice of you to offer but they make cute little pool boys that take care of that 😉 trust me!!
