Pearls and Breadcrumbs

March 2, 2021


My friend KC and I were exchanging a myriad of voice memos the other day and we kept talking about how so many things have just randomly popped up in our lives. People we didn’t expect. Job opportunities we never saw coming. I sat down at my computer to work and saw my phone ping with another voice memo from Kace. I figured I had time to have one more exchange before getting to work (KC’s voice always puts me in the best mood anyway). I pressed play. “You know Chels, I don’t think these things are random. I think they’re all happening as they are supposed to be at the perfect time. The Universe knows what it’s doing.”

Immediately, I was so glad I pressed play. She was so right. There is no such thing as a random series of events because when you look back they look like a perfect string of pearls leading to where you are now. 

These events may look like pearls (or something scary) when you look back, but when you look forward to me those events all occur by picking up breadcrumbs. Confused? Yeah, me too. Maybe just watch the video…

I love you. Here’s to great big breadcrumb adventures. XOXO, CAMDW

    The Magic of Awareness

    Our alarm goes off every morning at 5:50 am…Domi hits snooze and we’re jolted awake again at 6. Groggily I roll over and hit the light next to our bed because that’s the only way I know I’ll get up—with light shining in my eyes. I grab my glasses and my phone and head into […]

    Lately, I’ve had this nagging feeling that I have too much on my plate. It’s really hard to admit that for me. For months now I’ve been wondering why I can’t seem to prioritize the things in my life, why it feels so hard. I make lists on lists of my priorities and I forget […]
