What comes naturally to you?
Where do you seem to get lucky?
What events in your life just “fell into place?”
What were the incredible synchronicities that led you to…
Slam dunk. Piece of Cake. Pure joy. Your absolute pleasure.
No matter where I am, on the airplane or in the park, people just tell me stuff. I hear this a lot: “Wow, I’ve never told anybody that. I can’t believe I just told you that.” That’s been happening to me since high school.
(No wonder I make my living by, essentially, listening.)
My route to landing one of the most powerful, hard-to-get-to literary agents in the publishing business was as buttery as 1-2-3. It was an incredibly charmed process that Changed My Life. (Really good things happen when I write.)
I love to wrap presents. Invite me to your house at Christmastime, and I’ll wrap your gifts for you. Something about the folding, the giving, the tape…I guess that makes me a wrap-a-phile. (Confucius say, “Good packaging bring happiness.”)
Pay Attention to What’s Easy for You
Those unremarkable happinesses, those second-nature ways that feel like you’re casually following Easy, those almost unbelievably easy breakthroughs…that is where your divinity lies. Go there, often. More often. Your essence is always waiting for you.
Happiness wants to come easy.
