I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful week!
My sincerest apologies for sending out this week’s Miracle Minute 4 days late! I was on my way back from Vancouver to Berlin last Friday, and I managed to forget my laptop in security at Heathrow!
I just got it back, and am delighted to finally be able to send out this week’s update.
As always with life, this situation brought up a Miracle Tip- to stay PRESENT!!
This was already staring at me in the face earlier last week, and it got reinforced when I arrived in Berlin minus my laptop. Please read on to find out more!
MIRACLE TIP: Stay Present
As you all know, I spent the last month with my family in Vancouver. It was a lovely visit, full of much-needed family time for me.
Living so far away, I miss simple things like having dinner together, and my mother’s and my addiction of watching soap operas together. I got my fill of The Bold & The Beautiful, The Young & The Restless, and Days of Our Lives 🙂
I had a big plan to focus on my business marketing- Facebook Lives every day, update my YouTube channel, boost all my videos, the list goes on. Then squeeze in family time wherever I could.
Then it hit me: Family time was staring at me in the face. I was ALREADY in Vancouver, ALREADY with my family.
I have total commitment to my business, but I realised that it would be okay to put aside my laptop for 3 days and to focus on my family. I won’t see them until Christmas, and what I needed most at the time was to be fully present with them.
And gasp!- the world did not cave in. It was OKAY to prioritise what I needed most. In fact, it’s what NEEDED to happen. I needed to fully embrace what was right there for me, in the moment.
And so we had a wonderful last few days of my visit.
Cue then heading back to Berlin, and my flight was delayed leaving Vancouver. We therefore arrived late in London. I had only one hour to change terminals as well as clear immigration and security at Heathrow in order to catch my connecting flight to Berlin.
There was a long queue to get onto the transport from one terminal to the next and I was worried about missing my flight. I managed to fast-track myself through immigration and on to security (bless my expertise at getting through Heathrow as quickly as possible!).
Everything was going very smoothly, but then I dropped the ball.
I was so focused on catching my flight, that I forgot to grab my laptop once I got through security. I only realised it when I arrived back in Berlin.
Thankfully, there is a great lost and found service at Heathrow, and they had my laptop. I got it back four days later. All’s well that end’s well.
But it was another reminder to stay present at every moment of every day. Yes, I needed to be sure to catch my flight, but I also needed to remember to fetch my laptop. Especially as I am self-employed and everything I need is on it!
It was a reminder to take a minute to pause, make sure I had everything I needed (including my wits), and trust that I would get to my gate in perfect time.
It’s a great lesson for daily life. Often, we are so focused on the future, that we forget what’s needed in the moment.
On the upside, without my laptop, I had the time to fully organise myself back into my Berlin life after a month away. And I had extra time on my hands to enjoy the glorious sunshine we are being graced with (another reminder to stay fully
Miracle Moments- back this week!
Now that I am back in Berlin and all my technology is up and running, I have been doing Facebook Live videos again. I will send the links as usual in my regular Sunday update.
In the meantime, if you are interested in coaching- you can WIN a session with me!
I give away 2 free coaching sessions per month- there’s spots up for grabs in September!!
To enter, simply fill out the Clarity Questionnaire via this link:
This questionnaire will help you to dig deep and get clear about what you want in your life, as well as show you what is holding you back.
You can take as much or as little time as you like to fill it out- but the more you put in, the more you will get out of it!
Once you submit the questionnaire, it counts as your entry. I will also send you a copy back via email. I hope it inspires you to take action and kickstart the changes you desire in your life.
If you win the session, this questionnaire is also a great starting point for our work. How’s that for multi-tasking?
I contact the winners at the end of each month. I look forward to the sessions!
Sending you much love and a big dash of Miracles for the rest of the week.
