I saw a job offer today. It was something I could do it in an instant. The person hiring was in a similar industry and was awesome at what he/she did. If I did this it, would be for the pure pleasure of getting things done.
Immediately another mail came it. The subject line was the first thing I saw. “Better things are coming” I knew it was a sign. Instead, I began to rationalize. “There is no harm in doing it (the job).” Instantly, my Aries personality kicked in. “Why not?”
I decided to draft my e-mail.
Before I could hit send, I got a power outage.
Then my little one turned everything off by swiftly pressing the power button on my UPS.
“Ok, I’m not doing it.” I declared. It would be nice to have electricity again! Then I proceeded to feed the baby. Click. The power returned.
Lesson? Not because you can do something means you should do it. Source was making sure I don’t feed my ego. Allowing me to use my time for what really matters. Sharing my unique gifts with the world.
And maybe, just maybe this happened to also to inspire you (because I did set the intent to write something inspirational today.)
You know when you pay attention.
