“Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.” ~ Dale Carnegie
“You, down there? Get on with it!” ~ Rollo
**Today’s post comes to you courtesy of the Universe. Read on…
“We know that you’ve been asking for a sign, that you’re looking for reassurance, and some confirmation.
So here it is. Just for you. Because we believe in you, and we trust in your outcome.
It’s normal, at the beginning of a long journey, in the middle of a long journey, to feel a little overwhelmed.
Alright, maybe a lot overwhelmed.
Starting up again from nothing is daunting. Being brave enough to try one more time is hard. One hundred thousand words is so many when all you have is an idea for a novel. The deposit for a house is enormous when you barely have a dollar to your name. When you haven’t exercised for a decade and your health has been let go, fitness may seem an impossible dream.
You may have a goal in mind where you’re not even sure how to get to your destination, or what the guideposts will look like along the way.
That’s okay. In fact, that’s how it always is.
That’s why we wanted to remind you about something important that you seem to have forgotten.
No matter what your goal is, if your heart is calling you to try…
all you ever need to do is trust, and take one small step.
The first step matters. Once you’ve taken that step, be brave and try another. That’s all you have to do. One small step. Another small step.
If you keep taking small steps, eventually you’ll be somewhere new, and your world, and you, will be very different. You might not end up anywhere near where you thought you might be. Humans often can’t see that far ahead.
But we can. So we’re asking you to trust. Just trust and take that step.
The thing’s already written in your heart. The energetic plan’s already in progress. We’re conspiring in your success. All that’s needed now is a little commitment, and a little action.
So here’s what you need to do:
Commit to that small step. Take that small step. Repeat.
The synchronicities are up to us. The helpful people and lucky breaks are too. Don’t worry about mapping out the entire journey. That’s not your job – it’s ours! We have a much better view from up here.
So, you have your confirmation. Don’t put it off any longer. Life’s grand adventure awaits!
Oh, and one other thing…
If you asked for a specific sign; you know, a unicorn or a hedgehog or a magic word, or your name written in pink magic marker on a white fluffy cloud, well, we want you to go ahead and open this box.
See, we’ve thought of everything. So no more excuses. We believe in you, and you can do this. Go to it!
All our love and support, The Universe.”

Wonderful blog. Just the push I was looking for today. This blog is the first sign from the universe for translating my dream into reality.
Nicole, thank you for continuing to write and inspire even though you aren’t feeling your best. I wish you health and healing. And I voted for your wonderful blog!
I really needed this post today and it reminded me of a question I have about signs. Recently, I asked for a purple hippopotamus as an affirmative answer to a question. I saw three purple hippos in a span of a week, though I had only asked to see one in a 24-hour period. Not sure if this should be encouraging or discouraging. When I only ask for one instance of a sign and get multiple, I can’t help but wonder if it is just a matter of what I pay attention to. I’d love your thoughts on “multiple signs.”
Perfect message at the perfect time. Thank you. 🙂
You’re welcome. So glad to be of service 🙂 xx
Life can be overwhelming at times. Step by step makes the burden lighter.Thanks for the reminder.

Went away to celebrate an in-law’s birthday after reading your previous post, snuck onto fb briefly late last night and saw your status and was very curious to see what you were getting. Came home to this post.
Between the past two posts I’ve had a lot of reactions, thoughts and emotion. You are such a messenger and have a beautiful way with your use of words, imagery, quotes and your energy (yes, even the Lyme-inhibited version) comes through so clearly and with such love and compassion. Thank you. <3 xox
Just doing my job, Nicky. And it’s a job I love with my whole heart!!! Blessings, love and hugs to you xoxoxo
OMGosh! Nicole, today’s post is just amazing and as if it was written just for me. Thank you. During my meditation session this morning I asked for you to be wrapped in healing light and gave thanks “…. for Nicole’s mentoring blog because she shares with us what You have already shared with her and it inspires us.” Big hugs.
Aw! Thanks for that healing light. I gratefully accept it, and return some to you. Bless xx
It’s a long road ahead, but I’ve finally taken that first step. Thanks, Nicole! 🙂
That’s such great news, Carol. Well done!!!!
If there were an Olympic sport for synchronised signage…you’d bring home the gold. Can’t tell you how perfectly timed that was for me. Thanks, Beautiful xo BIG love from Mookie, Sam and me xoxoxo
Yay Team!!! Big love to all of you too 😀 xoxoxo
Thanks to you Nicole, to The Universe, and of course to Rollo xxx
He’s a cheeky one, that Rollo, with his big booming bossy voice, but he’s got a heart of gold!
Love you, Suzy! xoxo
I saw you comment about this blogpost an FB last night and i thought I wonder if this will speak to me. yesterday was not my best day. I started to question what I was doing I thought why did i decide to do the contest, my blog decide to be slower than watching grass grow so there was some of the self-doubt setting in.
When I woke this morning I felt energised and excited, Have just had a coconut oil bath with crystals etc and a body brushing.
I then saw your blog post in my email and having read it my heart is smiling see you do know when you listen and follow your heart.
Have beautiful Sunday Nicole I am now heading to out local market and then I think maybe to Tweed Art gallery today to feed the soul
All my love and thank you and the universe
truly amazing xo
I love my job as messenger and pom-pom waver on behalf of the Universe. *Go Suzie! Go Suzie!*

See, he knew what you were thinking…
Gotta love that purple box!
Big love to you, gorgeous girl, from the whole gang xx
here’s my new sunday plan, big cooked brekkie with fresh coffee, get into my decorating with colour course, plant some bulbs for spring, neighbours garden club at 3pm, no marking in sight (that was the original plan!) – yeah yeah! have a lovely day! :o)
The Universe spoke to me..it brought me to this blog and you…. and this time I listened.
I have been following the Make my Life work series for me for the past two weeks…and in this short period of time an avenue opened up that is fueling my creativity and I am being given the gift of so many new and profound friendships.
Oh Brie! I’m so excited to hear that!!!! I pour my heart and soul into this blog, and while I have been down for the count with my Lyme Treatment it is one of the best ways for me to keep putting my energy out into the world so that I can keep following my own path. So you’ve gifted ME confirmation. *happy dance*
Hooray, and big big hugs to you xoxo
big hugs back! xxoo
<3 <3 <3
Thanks Rollo xx
He’s just the best, isn’t he!
Love you! xoxo
