[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Bazaar and Bizarre

Don't worry about losing. If it is right, it happens - the main thing is
not to hurry. Nothing good gets away." - John Steinbeck, author

Did my first book fair at a bazaar yesterday. I was pretty grateful for the
opportunity to showcase the book, I asked a good buddy of mine to also give
me some of her books to add to the stall ("Lead your Team to Win" check it
out), and another friend of mine asked me if I could showcase some of his
work, not books, but organic jewelry! I set up my little corner in the tea
room and started out the day! The traffic for books was a little slow but
interest was building! I was having a good time being there and soaking in
the atmosphere! After the event I could not find the box with ALL the
jewelry! We searched the entire compound and even the garbage! The search
took about two hours! By now I'm really feeling like super bad for being so
careless and irresponsible! I'm sitting in the car asking myself ok what is
the lesson here?

I drove home and as I got out of the car, there was the box staring at me!
I have no idea how it got there! I was just happy to see the box! I love
how the Universe works with me! I cannot explain it, I am not even going to
try, but time and time again I am reminded of how life loves us even when
we cuss it! Life loves us, get on the radar let life show us how! Stop
hiding from life and trying to control everything!!

So all's well that ends well!

Found the box! My friend and her daughter were great support and I learnt,
yet again, to let go
