Warning: The Universe is Literal
A few months ago, I decided that if I were to get a new job, I really, REALLY wanted to work close to home. Like, five minutes away. I made my list of exactly what I wanted, set my intentions and released my order into the universe.
Last month I got a job offer. It was everything on my list – except that it was a half hour away. Accepting that sometimes we don’t get everything we want, I took it.
Last week, I decided to go to my parents house for lunch. They live five minutes away from my new job and it would involve a free lunch, so off I went. As I waited as a stoplight, it hit me. I was going HOME for lunch.
In my mind, my parents house is still home. And I didn’t differentiate this when I made my list or set my intentions. The universe gave me exactly what I asked for. Literally.
