Today I experienced a serious case of dÃ©jÃ vu.Â I was working at my computer, having spent the day with the hubby looking for a building for our next venture, when he walks in and sets some library books on my desk.Â The one on top sent a shiver up my spine.Â â€œIâ€™ve been here before.â€
As I was telling a friend about the experience, it dawned on me that today was one of those days where I had stayed on track.Â It was a good day.Â Maybe dÃ©jÃ vu isnâ€™t some strange â€œpsychicâ€ thing.Â Maybe it is just the spirit man and the physical man finally catching up.Â Maybe itâ€™s the confirmation that you are exactly where God wants you to be right at that moment â€“ or at least where He has been preparing you to be.
Just the thought of being on the right path is enough to get me motivated and excited all over again.Â It makes me want to climb Mt. Everest or swim the ocean or just tackle the clutter in the living room.Â Knowing that Iâ€™m doing good makes me want to do better.
Now Iâ€™ve been hit with a second realization.Â If success feels this good to me, I bet it feels this good to my children and my husband.Â If I set them up to finish the tasks that I ask them to accomplish then praise them for their effort and outcome, the positive forces will move to do more â€“ better â€“ with out being asked.Â Mom will finally be able to take the long bubble bath after dinner instead of washing the dishes.
On second thought, maybe that first flash wasnâ€™t dÃ©jÃ vu after all.Â It could be that I got a whiff of too much cleaning fluid and Iâ€™ve just been delusional all this time.Â Ha!Â Boys cleaning without being told â€“ had to have been a dream.
