When Knocking on Doors Meets Opportunity Meets Healing through the Holidays

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

~ Roman Philosopher, Seneca

Happy Sunday, Journeyer,

Wow…it has been quite the whirlwind week.

Rain and sun and wind and frost.

That about sums up my fleeting moments of happy, Journeyer, noticing the warmth of the sun, the colors of the morning sky, the birds, the floating leaves, the much-needed rains, and a new carport that makes me smile every single morning because I don’t have to scrape frost from my windshields in the pre-dawn hours when I leave home for my “other job.”

And then there’s this,  Journeyer. The stress of learning new tasks and new languages and assembling my work into different platforms to present to others. The lack of sleep as I tried to meet some tight deadlines for these opportunities I happened to walk into at just the right time.

Talk about stress.

And yet, the rewards of that time spent laboring and learning are this week’s happy highlight reel.

The expression goes like this: “Opportunity knocks,” but here’s  how it happened, Journeyer.

I’ve been knocking on different doors for months now, with little or no desired results. I didn’t let that deter me.

-I knocked on doors and kept knocking on doors until opportunity presented itself.-

Journeyer, remember a few weeks back when I told you about those doors that were opening? I am happy to report that the per diem hospital instructor position is now official. Signed, sealed, and delivered. AND, they agreed to look at my proposal for The Five Facets Beyond Bereavement workshop.

And that local spa I had been talking to? This is what we birthed, Journeyer: a five-part series on Healing through The Holidays!

The holidays can be such a difficult time for those who have experienced some kind of loss and this is my way of helping them navigate the days with a little more confidence, grace, and ease.

I have wanted to create this workshop since I did that radio gig three years ago, and now it is finally here!

AND, even more exciting is THIS! I know so many of you from across the globe who might want to attend but can’t because of that pesky distance thing. So I did a little research and here’s what happened.

I found a way to offer these classes to you via teleconference! That’s right! Healing through the Holidays Teleconference events are only a phone call away!

It all begins in ONE WEEK on November 22! And, we pulled together some pretty great savings when you purchase the entire series or sign up with one of your local or global neighbors!

I am just over-the-moon excited and exhausted and I can’t wait to help you or someone you know find a little healing this holiday season.

You, too, can help create healing for someone by sharing these events with the people and organizations in your area who serve those in need.

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping spread healing and hope!

And now, before I fall off my chair, I think I need to wrap up and head to bed. That ‘ole alarm is going to go off might early in the morn.

But before I go, I’d love to know what simple or super moments fed your happy last week, Journeyer. Share one of your stories in a comment below?

Until next time, yours in hope, healing, and happiness,
