I have a home! I have a job! Haha, everything is working out here and I couldn’t be happier about that. I had a list of things that I wanted to ‘have’ in order to fully feel at peace and at home here. And It was: 1. a home 2. gym 3. a job.
A few days ago I was Skyping with my family and they asked me about my life here and about my job.. which I didn’t have but I had to lie to them that I have one, because before I left I said that I got a job here which wasn’t true. As bad as it felt to lie I didn’t want them to worry about me, because I didn’t worry, I knew I would find a job anyways. But after Skyping I started feeling really sad about the fact that I still don’t have a job. “I’ve been here for a month and I still haven’t found a job”, “Maybe I won’t find a job at all” were some of the thought that came to my mind. Then I remembered something I learnt from Gabrielle Bernstein’s book – ask universe for help, I said “‘Dear universe I need your help to get the perfect job” in my mind and went to sleep.
The next day I was walking on the street and my phone started ringing, I picked up my phone and the guy said “Hey Lucy, I’m Glenn, you left your resume into our shop a few days ago, would you like to come for an interview?” I had the biggest smile on my face and the only thing I could think was – universe are you serious!?!? This is not real, this can’t be happening.
The next day I went for an interview, it’s a small bikini boutique called Bondi Born, right by the beach two minutes from my place. I met the owner who was so nice and when I left the interview I felt like that’s the dream job. Selling beautiful bikinis in a beautiful boutique two minutes from my place? Heck yes. 2 hours after the interview he called me back and said that I got the job, I will start next week! Universe, you are crazy and I love you.
