Dear Believers of Magic,

When I’d made the decision to change my life and let go of what I was no longer prepared to put up with, there were some recurring themes that kept coming back at me. I couldn’t ignore them. I just didn’t know how to shape them into a clear picture.

But this is what I knew for sure. I loved words, food, hosting people and travelling to the Greek islands.

I knew I was never destined for a secure, corporate job and this is where things get interesting.

One afternoon, in the kitchen of my old home, in my old life, I made an announcement out loud: I’m really good at eating, I want someone to pay me to eat!

That was it. Loud and clear. I felt those words pulsate through every cell of my body as they came out of my mouth. I meant it. I wanted to get paid to eat!

Within 6 months of making that announcement out loud, in my old home, in my old life, I achieved it. I managed to land a job that wanted to pay me to EAT! It was the most fun I’d ever had. I kept pinching myself in disbelief that it was actually happening.

How I Managed to Get Paid to Eat

living magic, Sifnos…

I have repeated this story countless times and have made a very clear observation. There are two types of people in the world. The ones that believe in the power of magic and miracles and the ones that don’t. So typically, when I share it with the non-believers, I’m greeted with a perplexed look, which quickly follows a bellowing laugh.

I know what that laugh means. That laugh means: Ah! You’re one of those kinds of people!

It also means: how could you possibly think that would even work…Go get a real job.

Here’s the thing. I’ve had a real job and there’s one thing I know for sure. I never want a real job ever again.

The believers just smile. I know that smile too. It’s the one that quietly says: Ah! Thank you for reminding me of the power of magic. Yes, I too have experienced that…

 When you are shut off from the enormity of what life has to offer, you miss the cues that the universe presents you with to give you what you want. So keep your eyes open and your intentions clear. Then pay attention for what’s on its way, because chances are, that unexpected gift of magic might be closer than you think…

Happy travels, Paula x
