The last couple of months for me have been a huge transition coming from six years of school and life with constant expectations, to a place where I have an abundance of free time. I graduated several months ago and now I am fervently searching for the ever-elusive job that I have yet to secure. Sometimes I feel like my life is so static and that I am desperately yearning for growth and change to hurry up and come along. Despite all of this, I try to live every day with an open mind and to understand that my purpose has not yet decided to reveal itself.
Tonight, I got home from my mom’s book club when my grandmother asked me to let the dog out because she wasn’t wearing shoes. I was outside waiting for Jack, admiring how perfect the stars looked in the ombre colored sky. I was appreciating how far I have come in my short existence and how lucky I was in that very moment to be enjoying the beautiful sky when IT happened.
I have waited my whole 24 years to see it- a shooting star. It was so perfect and simple and fleeting.
It didn’t linger for extra applause and it was gone like that. But this moment left my heart beating so fast and in that instant I knew. This was a divine sign.
I am exactly where I am supposed to be in life.
I will never forget that moment.
I am grateful for that star because I have been working so hard to remain confident and to head in my right direction. I felt like the universe was rewarding me with something so rare, which was just the reassurance I needed.
