It's funny, when you put stuff out into the universe and it answers. It's not always going to say, "Hey! Great idea, here's some stuff with which to accomplish that goal." Sometimes it'll tell you to sit still and keep your mouth shut, but that isn't my experience.
The universe has a tendency to tell me to move, to explore, to create. Sometimes I listen. And when I do it usually rewards me with rich experience I wouldn't trade for anything.
Yes, there are aggravations, there are moments when I think it would have been oh so much better to stay at home in my comfy little apartment and not dealt with the hassle, but I'm wrong, it's always worth the trouble.
Sometimes, as one gets older and a little less afraid of the world one feels like exploring a little further afield, and sometimes the universe encourages that.
So I highly recommend that you put your dreams out there, that you stretch a bit, and make yourself a little uncomfortable. The rewards you'll get are immeasurable, and the friendships that carry you through these adventures are priceless.
Say it! Say it out loud, write it on your blog, put a note on your fridge, make it your screensaver, whatever it takes, just let the universe know you're ready and willing to take the next scary and exploratory step. I bet it brings you some interesting news.
And so it goes:
