Back in late 2014, I met a woman who after speaking with me for 10 minutes told me she knew I was capable of having “whale experiences.” Little did she know how much I needed to hear that at that time.
In early January of this year I was really thinking about this idea of coaching, but I still wasn’t 100% certain that giving up practicing to pursue coaching was the right thing to do. I prayed that God would show me a sign that I was on the right path. I asked to see two things, a blue jay and a whale. I had even told my mom about the two things and why I chose them.
As I have been struggling the past few months I kind of lost sight of my goals and those two signs I was waiting for.
Yesterday I spent the entire day with my mom for her birthday. Before we left we were in the kitchen talking, and my brother who knew none of this said, “look a blue jay!” I didn’t get up in time to see it, but my mom did. I immediately reminded her that that was one of the signs I had asked for.
Later that day her and I were at Kirklands, and as we were walking through the store I happened to look down just as we were passing a carved wooden whale. I couldn’t even believe it!
I am on the right path. It may be slower than others, but it’s my path and it will happen in my time.
