Every once in awhile, while you are busy living your life and distracted by all the shiny, noisy stuff out there competing for your attention, the universe will find a way to nag you about something. Something that you’ve been ignoring. For a little too long.
It tugs at your sleeve, and you might not notice the first tug or even the second. But after more than a few tugs in the same direction, you begin to wonder – is it your imagination, or is something in the ether trying to tell you something?
When this sort of thing happens, I pay attention, because it’s usually important. Important enough to stop and take a hard look at what these quiet little signals are pointing to.
It’s funny how in our own little world we think everything is normal. We go along, doing what we do, not exactly thinking about the way we are, and how that affects the people around us. Hopefully we are affecting the world in a positive way – and I think everyone starts out with this intent – but our efforts aren’t always received in the way we intend them.
