One of my core beliefs is that Everything Happens for a Reason! My temporarily income challenged (maybe I should paten that?) situation has given me the gift of time and I think I have been doing a good job at taking advantage of it and balancing it! I have been taking time to (literally) smell the roses, time to go to the beach or pool, time with girlfriends during the day, time to run errands, time to network and get to know new people, and time to seek out new opportunities (don’t worry job hunting is included here)! I have also taken the time to look back at the past 2 months and see just how things have fallen into place; I am in complete awe!
Where I am right here, right now would not have been possible if I hadn’t lost my main source of income (you know, my job). I am beyond grateful for everything that has transpired in the past couple of months! The opportunities and doors that have been opened truly take my breath away! The type of meetings, trainings and seminars I have been able to attend are truly life changing. These are opportunities that I don’t think I would have been able to take advantage of if I was working all day. I know this is all part of my Californian life transformation and I am so excited!
I decided to pursue real estate investing (a passion that I started to explore in NJ long before the move) and I have recently aligned myself with an investing club! I am over the moon at this opportunity! RE investing is something that I know is truly meant for me, I won’t bore you with the crazy and overwhelming signs from the universe now (but I reserve the right to share later), but I know this is something that will be life changing. I am so excited to embark on this chapter of my life! Now if I could find a steady income (you know, a job) I could give more focus to investing (investing won’t pay the bills at first, so a j-o-b is needed while I get started and probably for a few years after that).
I have also been part of a dream building mastermind group! A group that meets monthly to design and create the life we want. It is led by two amazing women who are experts in dream building and manifesting. I know it is not an accident that I found this great opportunity!
Today I had the amazing opportunity to be a guest (thank you!) at the eWomen Network Mastermind event! I had a great time! I met so many incredible, successful and supportive women! Including a friend of a friend who knew exactly who I was just by my introduction (6 degrees of what?!). I can’t articulate exactly what about today’s experience moved me but something did! And it was a major reassurance that I truly am where I am meant to be!
One of my other core beliefs is to surround yourself with liked minded people and people you want to be like. For example; I am pursuing RE investing so I joined a club of other investors! And I know it is no accident that the networking opportunities I have been exploring lately have been filled with strong, successful and supportive women! I know I am on the right track!
Income challenged aside, the past couple of months have been an absolute amazing journey! A journey that I am truly grateful for! It is truly breathtaking when you take the time to stop and SEE how things have fell into place.
Hopefully after you read this you will stop to see the amazing events in your life! I would honestly love to hear about it, please comment or email me at Christine@cupcakingchristine.com and share!
