LIFE-GASM: adjective – Word used to describe those moments when all is right in your world. The stars are aligned, the earth sits right on its axle, and your heart is just full of gratitude. A moment when you are fully present.
Ever have one of those Life-gasm moments??? I have! They don’t happen to often, but when they do, they feel so POWERFUL! Mostly they are experienced at times when you have something profound that happens and you’re SO HAPPY your heart could burst!
In 2018, I decided I wanted to go to a good old fashioned pumpkin patch instead of the grocery store to get a pumpkin. I did this as a kid. Having relocated, I had the opportunity to go an official pumpkin patch again!
WANT PUMKIN-WILL TRAVEL!
GPS set? CHECK! Gas in the tank? CHECK! Sunroof and windows open? CHECK! Tunes cranked up high? CHECK! I plugged in the address, and I was off!
The weather was BEAUTIFUL! My windows were down. It was a cool temperature for the day and the trees were all in competition to be crowned ‘most-gorgeous’. It was fantastic! Eat your heart out Florida friends!
It was still early. Barely any traffic. I was truly just soaking up the sun on my face, the open highway, and listening to some fantastic tunes. It could have been a commercial!
I think it was one of many moments that just hit me. I was just present. Appreciative. GRATEFUL. …… Oh…. SO…. GRATEFUL! Seriously, if you would have met me just one year before, you would not have recognized me! I just started to reflect then, how far I had come in just ONE YEAR.
I don’t know about you, but once upon a time, I remember sitting in math class trying to take a test and I kept looking at the clock. SO-DAMN-SLOW. Minutes felt like years!!!! The insult to my frustration was every time I looked at said clock, was the sign that was over it: TIME WILL PASS-WILL YOU??? I hated that clock and sign. NOW? Chunks of time disappear…..*POOF!* GONE. Evaporated. I mean solid months and years seem to have gone by in a flash! Having said all that, ONE YEAR prior, time was moving slow. My soul felt singed by every single breathing moment of time. (divorce) Now suddenly, there I was, one year later. Happy as lark!
Yep, here I was one year later, happy and singing at the top of my lungs with the windows down. Then suddenly, I turned off the radio. I needed to speak out loud a massive THANK YOU to my Angels that helped me get to that point. If it weren’t for the help of my Great Aunt and Grandfather on the other side, I don’t know if I could have made it. It was a LIFE-GASM moment. I wanted to give credit where credit was due. Was this the first time I said thank you? OH HELL NO! I say it ALL-THE-TIME! I just tell them to suck it up and deal with the fact that I need to say it a lot! So far, they haven’t told me to stop or that they are bored hearing it. So I keep doing it!
Anyway, I said a few things out loud with a smile in my heart and just then to the left, a car was passing and their license plate was:
I busted out laughing! A comment from the other side! My Angles are really good at this talking through signs to me. Its was another example that they are truly there, even though we can’t see them.
It was truly awesome! Its only thru reflection in the rear view mirror that you see how far you have traveled. I don’t know where life is leading me but I do know I’m on the right road and where I am at now is where I am meant to be.
