Several years ago, when I was living in Florida, I rented a beautiful condo on the river. The lanai overlooked the water, where I could see boats, kayaks and all sorts of wildlife.
My neighbors told me to watch for the dolphins that come around the pier in the morning. I was so excited, I couldn't imagine seeing them right from my own home.
Almost every day, I sat out on the balcony to have my coffee, I loved watching the birds and even saw flying/jumping fish, but no dolphins. Every time I saw even the slightest movement in the water, I would look a little harder, hoping to see them.
As time went on, I became discouraged, but I was determined to not give up. My lease was almost over and I really wanted to see them before I left.
Just a few weeks before my move, I was feeling sad that I had not seen, even one dolphin anywhere. My mind went back to something I had heard at a Law of Attraction workshop. That you need to focus on what you want, not what you don't want.
Be Open to the Possibilities
Within 24 hours, I saw dolphins everywhere. People sent me cute dolphin emojis on messages and emails, I saw pictures of beautiful dolphins swimming on the internet.
Enjoy the Unfolding
It was also a great reminder that I can't control things, but if I can relax and let go, everything will come to me in the perfect way and at the perfect time.
I play this little game whenever I am feeling shortage of any kind and I am still surprised and delighted at how quickly it manifests.
