Shoes and acts of Faith

I was on the phone with a good friend of mine just the other night while I was moving my shoe collection into my new walk in closet. Aaaaahhh a new home for all of my lovely shoes! In neatly arranged rows of two, on three sides of the closet walls I can see each and every pair- a shoe hoarders dream come true. When my friend reminded me “Make sure you don’t fill your closet full- leave some room.” Whhhaaatttt???? Whoah wait a minute you’re not making any sense. Your sounding a bit crazy right now. And then he reminded me- just leave a scoach of space. What the hell for???? More shoes?

“No- You need to leave a bit of space for Mr. Right’s shoes. If you ever want to have the right man for you in your life- you have to make room for him.”

Oooohhhhhh. Dang that’s right. Good point. Not that I want to manifest just any ole person to be in my life- but when Mr. Right does come along- I should make some space for him in my life. This is not an act of desperation by any means- but an act of faith alone for later on down the line. Its not even something on my mind right now at this point in my life- but we all want to be with the right person who is meant for us at some point. And whether its next year, or in ten- I will have dug my ditches for the things I want in life and they will have room to be filled.

The moral of this story is this-

“Man must prepare for the things he has asked for, even if there isn’t the slightest sign of it in sight. “ – Scovel Schinn

Whatever it is in life that we want- we must prepare for it ahead of time to give it room to manifest. To slightly act as if we already have it. No- I don’t have a screw loose- but its rather minor acts of faith to have the things in life that you want. If your life is crowded and jam packed from every corner- where is there room for the things you want??? They need a space they can be attracted to and that they can fill.

Whether it’s a job, an item you want, or relationship. Slough off the excess and remove the baggage- both physical and mental and make room for the things you want in order to have the best life possible.

It is a good time to do that spring cleaning and make room for what you want.
