This week I saw this adorable segment from the Jimmy Fallon show where Nicole Kidman was his guest. And she reminded him that they met about 8 years ago when she came to his apartment with a mutual friend. In the segment, on national TV, as they both recount their memories of this meeting years ago, Jimmy finds out that Nicole liked him and might have dated him. It's a complete revelation.
Watch the segment here:
Seems that at the time even though he was on SNL, Jimmy didn't think he was worthy of the attention of a superstar like Nicole. Even when she showed up on his doorstep, he couldn't believe it or take any action around it.
So here's my question for you: What are you unaware that you're worthy of? What kinds of amazing opportunities are showing up at your doorstep, literally or metaphorically, that you're missing because you can't see them? What gifts is the universe bestowing on you that you haven't even noticed are there? What's your Nicole Kidman?
I've been asking myself this question for two days. I am doing my best to open my arms and receive, receive, receive all the good that's coming to me, and I encourage you to do the same.
You (yes, you!!) are worthy of fabulous opportunities, travel to exotic locales, happiness, awesome relationships, a daily routine that invigorates and inspires you, wonderful friends, and anything else you can picture. That's the trick - you have to be able to picture it.
Poor Jimmy couldn't picture himself with Nicole back then and so it didn't matter that she was right in front of him, in living color.
(The good news is that today Jimmy and Nicole are both happily married to other people with kids of their own, so the universe has a way of working things out.)
But you? Right now? Don't wait. Start opening your eyes to the gifts and possibilities right in front of you. They are there, at your doorstep, ready for you to receive. How fantastic is that?
