Early January of this year is when I noticed it - just how often I would glance at the clock and the time would be 12:34. I don't typically notice these things but it kept happening so often that I couldn't ignore it anymore.
Early January of this year is when I noticed it - just how often I would glance at the clock and the time would be 12:34. I don't typically notice these things but it kept happening so often that I couldn't ignore it anymore. I would screenshot my phone with the time of 12:34pm and send it to my friends, like "See!? This is crazy!". A firm believer in 'things happen for a reason' - I admitted this cannot be a coincidence. The universe is trying to tell me something - but what? And maybe even more important, why now?
After reading a number of articles, there are a few different explanations for continuing to see 1234 in sequence. But the one that really struck me the most was when I read this is the universe confirming I'm on the right path - the true path - that will lead to showing me my life's purpose. And since no one ever really walks alone, I believe this is the universe saying WE are on the right path. "We" of course being the brave souls that spent many afternoons and late nights dreaming and discussing what would ultimately become the Om Lounge. We had a hope and a vision that one day maybe we could create a space to express ourselves while allowing our students to do the same. A warm and cozy room where you can grow and become stronger, physically and mentally. A loving and supportive studio that creates a community of positive energy that we can then spread to the rest of the world.
And then one day, Suzanne exclaimed "I'm doing it!" And the rest of us cheered! She couldn't resist this calling any longer - it was time for her to begin this journey and I for one was thrilled to be a part of it. I'm continuously amazed, humbled and inspired by our fearless leader. We all know Suzanne is a little dynamo full of energy but seeing her work relentlessly to make this dream a reality has been life changing for those of us lucky enough to be involved. You can absolutely tell this is coming from her heart and what she was put on this Earth to do. She is no doubt on the right path, her true path. And while a new venture such as this can at first be scary and daunting at times... trusting your intuition, utilizing your talents and leaning on your strong circle of friends and family can make the scariness become excitement. And let me tell you, I'm damn excited for the Om Lounge to officially open and make this a part of my personal path and journey. You'll notice the dream catchers, because that's what we did - we caught a dream and made it real. We are exactly where we are supposed to be.
The Om Lounge is a rung on a ladder that leads up - onward and upward to finding our true purpose and leaving behind a beautiful feeling and positive vibe that will hopefully remain in the hearts and minds of our students, on and off the mat. I just looked down at my phone, it's 2:34pm. And so it goes...All the love and energy, ~Leslie
