Sometimes just taking the step into something new brings unexpected, yet very welcome rewards. Kind of like The Universe is giving you a hug for stepping outside your boundaries.
Have you ever done something uncharacteristic of yourself and had it pay off with an unexpected surprise or result?
I recently had this very experience as I did something quite unusual of myself… and walked into a ‘Hummus Restaurant’ purely to broaden my palate and live in the moment. The full story following is remarkable.
I was enjoying the quiet, sunny day by myself in the East Village of New York, looking for a late lunch post-yoga… I came past a nice, average looking Hummus restaurant. I smiled & politely asked the only people (two guys) still dining out front if the food was any good. The guy in the cap & sunnies said “it’s the best”, so I sat down on the table next to him (the only other table there)… and then the same guy proactively proceeded to advise me on the best dishes to try, from his experience. Nice guy.
Yes, Ryan… I’ll never forget, “The Hummus Masabacha with pita on the side… Got it. Thanks again for that, see ya, have a great day.”
And then just as any script in Hollywood would have had it, I turned my gaze away before he did. Be gone.He left. I ate hummus. That is the end of the story (…at least I assume it is!).So, it’s ok to live outside your regular patterns and behaviours once and a while because The Universe might give you a special treat to let you know it’s not just okay… it’s a way of life.
