My phone buzzed at an unGodly hour this morning. J was working.
He was talking about his job, a job that he’s worked so hard for, a job he loves. He said that a year ago he had plans of”making it” but even he didn’t know what that meant. With a knack for sales and marketing he thought, a Territory Sales Rep, and that’s the best thing he could get. To man the post and keep people in line to make the 1% happy.
And now he has a job that is so much more than that. He has a career he didn’t even know he should hope for, work for or dream for.
There are things out there that are so good, it doesn’t even occur to us to wish for them. It’s the stillness in the morning hours where you realize everything. This morning I realized that my life was at this peak and when I bowed my head to say a prayer of thanks, for the first time, it wasn’t for myself but for anyone and everyone else.
