“Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it.”
~ Greta Garbo
“Miracles happen to those who believe in them.”
It was like standing in line, on that day, for American Idol! A sea, of enthusiastic people, lined up, single file, with no end in sight. Five thousand hopeful aspirants, waiting patiently, for their turn to make it to the front. Could I be so blessed to be chosen? To be one, of the, one hundred and twelve they were looking for? In my mind, I believed, I would be divinely blessed! Holding onto that thought, kept me moving forward, in the processes, of elimination. There would be many levels, yet to be accomplished, before I would be given, due consideration. I was ready! I was prepared in my mind, and up for this, once in a lifetime opportunity of good fortune. That day, I knew, beyond a doubt, that I would make this first round of hopefuls. With nothing else to do, but stand there, my mind began to wonder. My daydream took me, to an unforgettable moment in my childhood. A moment that changed my life forevermore! I had imagined this day, since the age of five, when a little girl’s dreams, are sparked, within the purity of her heart and mind. Now, twenty years later, my dreams, have come alive, where, they were once buried deep, in the hope chest of my child’s intellect. This hope chest, is now wide open, within this experience, pouring out of it, a pure, self, knowingness, that this, is my time! Nothing, in this point of my life, was going to stop me, or get in my way, of making it to the front of this endless expanse, of bodies. With every person that moved forward, that meant, I was that much closer, to living my pie in the sky dream. After hours of standing in high-heeled shoes, that now wobbled when I walked, caused from the blisters that were forming on my feet, and make-up, that did not look as good as it did upon leaving the house, the person behind me, taps me on the shoulder and says,” you have something on the back of your skirt.” Dressed in a professional, white suit, that was carefully decided upon, for this very extraordinary moment, and living in the sunny, hot, desert climate, of Arizona, white, was the only color, that would deflect the sunlight from my body. I would be spending much of that day, waiting my turn, feeling exhilarated, outside. Looking at the back of my skirt, I immediately, became embarrassed and frantic. Should I go to the bathroom and fix this? If I do that, I will surely lose my position where I have been waiting for hours. Now what? I took one step out of line and looked in front of me, realizing that I was almost to its front. Quickly thinking, I took off my suit jacket, wrapped it around my waistline, making certain that the sleeves of the jacket, were tied in front, neatly as possible. I knew I was risking, looking unprofessional, but I convinced myself, that the person who I would be having dialogue with, would understand my acute dilemma, see that I am a problem solver, and this outcome, would worked to my advantage. As I approached the individual, appointed to speak with me, I immediately saw, the disapproving look on their face. I promptly, explained the reason for my fashion faux pas. To my wonderful surprise, my technique worked! And, just like in American Idol contestant, I made the first cut! The major group of thousand’s, had dwindled down in number. Not knowing the exact amount of people that made it, all I knew, was that I made it! What mattered to me, was that I accomplished my goal, of making it through this first round! Next up, were group interviews. These group interviews for me, were going to be a challenge. I become extremely shy, in large groups of people, and can talk myself right out of the running, in any momentous situation, with my own negative self-talk. I needed to calm myself down, and propel myself forward, regardless, the size of this group. We were all led to a vast room, with folding chairs, perfectly placed in a circle. Inviting us, to take a seat, we waited in angst, fueled with anticipation, hearing, the next set of instructions. As explained “In this group, we want YOU, to empower the person sitting next to you, telling us, why we should select that person, instead of selecting you !What?! You want ME, to sweet talk, the person sitting next to me, to YOU, so THEY can get their dreams fulfilled, instead of me? Wow! No way! Yet, I found a way. To convince them, that I was their only choice, was going to be challenging enough, without me, having, to close the deal for my competitor! There was no time for fear. I was invited, to be the first one, in the group, to do the talking. Thinking quickly, I decided, to sell the person sitting next to me, like I would want them, to sell me to someone. It is said, in the world of mystic, that if you praise others, in their journey to greatness, you are actually, praising for yourself, that very same request. Again my theory worked! I made that cut also! Two interviews down. One to go! Moving forward in this process of elimination, would require, several one-on-one interviews. The man that was interviewing me in this round, spoke of, “how good I would look in a uniform.”
