Got Backstage At My Favorite Show.
To be honest, I didn’t even know or mean to manifest my story but looking back, it changed my life forever! I had just had the worst year of my life. I was about to turn 30, had to move home and live with my parents, had no car, no job and no boyfriend as he had just completely broken my heart, you get it. I am so grateful that during that awful period of my life I thought enough to keep a journal because now I have proof of all the things I manifested. All the good that came to me after what I thought was an endless supply of getting kicked while I was down.
This story starts with me getting a new job, one that I wanted so badly! It wasn’t high-powered or anything but it would lead to so much more than I had imagined possible. That job, I’m convinced, was the beginning, the catalyst for me raising my vibration and being much more positive.
Growing up my favorite show was Saturday Night Live. That year Betty White was hosting with musical guest Jay-Z. This was my dream show! I thought, “If I could somehow figure out a way to get to this show, I would die a happy woman!” I decided I was going to fly to NYC, even if it was by myself and stand in line outside Rockefeller Plaza in the hopes I could get a ticket at the box office. I knew that was an extreme long shot, not to mention pretty unsafe for a solo woman, but I was more determined about going to this show. More so than anything I had ever wanted in my life. A day went by as I contacted every single friend to see if they would wait in line with me. But it was to no avail, no one could make it. I was sad and about to give up my dream when a thought popped into my head, “Just check Craigslist NY and see if there are any tickets for sale on there.” I figured if there were, it would cost thousands just to go which I wasn’t in the position to pay. I looked and there was one single advert saying that this person had a ticket to the dress rehearsal for the exact show I wanted to see.
To make an incredibly long story short on here, I ended up going to the live show, getting backstage and meeting almost every single cast member that night. As amazing as that experience was, and I still have to pinch myself that it wasn’t just a dream, the thing I took away the most was that if you want something bad enough, you can and will get it. It’s so hard to want something so badly and then have that fear set in or doubt or whatever negative emotion overcomes you. But trust me, if a girl from small-town Wisconsin can have the stars all align in such a perfect way for her, there is truth to this. Keep believing in your dreams and put yourself out there, even if you think it’s a long-stretch, it can happen.
