3 years, 2 words, and 1 magical moment

It’s a very special *Love Note Friday* and 3 years, 2 words, and 1 magical moment.

Today is a BIG day for me –  and I can’t wait to tell you why.

Just over 3 years ago I was on the phone crying to my mortgage officer.

I mean really crying.  

I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to ever qualify for a home loan on my own.

I had been financially dependent for so many years.

I was terrified about how I was going to make it after my divorce.
I hated that feeling.  I hated that I felt so incapable of making enough money.

My lender didn’t believe my story at all.

He wasn’t worried, and he didn’t believe that I needed to be worried either.  He didn’t believe that I’d have any problem at all. And I remember what he said to me that day…

“Listen, you’re going to be just fine.  This is all temporary.  You’re pretty powerful and vibrant and you are going to pull yourself out of this.  I’m confident of that.”  

Powerful.
Vibrant.

2 words that shaped me from that day forward.

I’ll never forget the words he said and the way he said them.  He saw in me what I couldn’t see.  He believed I was going to succeed.  (I could tell he really believed it.)

And I decided to believe him.

Over that next year there were many times that I wrote the words, “You are powerful and vibrant” on my bathroom mirror.  I could hear in my mind the belief he had in me.  I trusted that he saw something that I couldn’t see.  I chose to believe it was true.

Today, at 10:30 a.m. I’m signing on a new home loan.  I’m the only one on the loan documents. I’ll be sitting across the table from Geoffrey who told me I was powerful and vibrant, and sign on the dotted line.

It’s one of those big milestones and I’m celebrating today.

What if you are powerful and vibrant too?
What if your fears and insecurities are nothing more than noise in your head?
What if you can borrow my belief in you, and choose to make it a reality?

I know that so much is possible for you.

Show me (and you) that it’s true.

Have an amazing weekend – you deserve it.
