Nothing happens unless first we dream
It's a funny thing, the way the universe works. You may spend days, weeks, even months worrying over something you really have no control over. You think too much, you dream about it, you contemplate the worst possible scenario so as not to be disappointed. You prepare. And just when you think there's no possibility that things will work out... they do.
I was just told this morning that I now officially have a spot with a summer internship at Canadian Geographic magazine. And it's funny, because for the last two or three days I was wondering what was ever going to happen, and when I got the news, I was more excited than I've ever been!
It just makes me think that by having a little faith in yourself things always work out. So I know I can do well. This is a job I've wanted my whole life! Or at least, my whole writing life. I love writing about nature and animals and features on different kinds of people. And now I have the opportunity to do that. It's nervous, it's intimidating, but it's all I've been thinking about for the past four months.
So I think if we worry less, and 'go with the flow' more, and have a little faith in the universe that everything will be okay, it will be. It is. More than okay.
