When I arrived back in Vancouver, the cold icy breeze on my face, the tip of my nose a little rosy red in the December Winter; I knew I was starting a slow, but also immediate Goodbye with the city. I had fallen in love with Vancouver. My first year settling there was anything but ‘settling’… I had lost my closest dearest friend in my life, a week into the move from Australia. And after returning just three weeks later from the funeral, it was a time of grieving and healing. Not the easiest time to make new friends and find work in a completely different country! But Vancouver was good to me. It’s cherry blossoms and squirrels, it’s snow-capped mountains surrounding the city, Stanley Park, full of ancient trees and as I hoped being the hippie that I am, full of fairy spirits willing and able to grant wishes.
I knew in two months, February 2013, I would say goodbye to Vancouver and see my new love, Venice, for good.
I was planning to buy a car and drive down to Los Angeles on a road trip with my boxes of belongings. I sat, foot on the brake and turned the keys to a Volvo. It was in good condition, beautiful really, though I had also test drove a cheap and as I’m told, always reliable Toyota Corolla a day before. The phone rang, a beautiful friend and fellow-Aussie Actress, Kristie was calling. I kept my foot on the break and letting the car idle I answered her call.
“Would you like to come on a work trip with me, all-expenses paid, including flight, hotel, dinners, to Mexico next week?”
“Ahhh… can I get my return flight direct to LA?”
And so, just like that, out of the Universe, I had a free holiday to Mexico with an amazing friend, and a free flight to my new home! I could buy a less expensive car in California and not have to pay extra to import, PLUS I got to spend a week on holiday before my move! Perfect timing. I flew from Mexico to LA on the 26th February, the manifestation I had set in December had come to fruition!
Everything always works out when you ask for the best possible outcome for your dreams!
