Ep 11 Transcript: Look for Synchronicities – Top Takeaways from Philip Merry
Andrea Vahl: Hello Dreamers. It’s your host, Andrea Vahl, and in today’s top takeaway episode, I’m going to dive a little bit deeper into some of the aha moments and teachings that I got from Dr. Philip Merry’s 10-year journey to getting his Ph.D. at age 69. I absolutely loved this episode.
Intro:Hello Dreamers. Welcome to the Late Starters Club, giving you the inspiration, mindset, and tools you need to start something midlife and beyond. Remember, it’s never too late to follow your dreams.
Andrea Vahl: If you haven’t had a chance yet, make sure you go and listen to episode ten with Dr. Philip Merry, because I found it so inspirational.
One of my favorite things that he said was that the best work in his life is still to come and he is just really living and embodying that statement. And I want to try and find out how I can put that more into my work as well. And I encourage you to think the same. Like how can we think about what we have left to give and what we have left to contribute on this earth and consider it some of our best work?
The other big aha moment I had is just his talk about synchronicities in his life and trusting the universe a little bit more that everything was going to work out.
One of the things he talked about was really following the curiosity and getting curious about things, and trusting that things would work out and fall into place. When he had that setback of not being in the right program. He didn’t think, “Well, that’s it then never mind I’m not going to get my Ph.D.”. He just pressed forward and applied to a program that was a better fit.
And I love that concept because we just need to, you know, know that it’s going to happen for us. He talked a lot about opening our hearts and our minds to the synchronicities of the universe, and that could lead us all to live more miraculously.
What I love thinking about too is not worrying about how something is going to happen, but knowing that it is going to happen. It’s not the how, but it’s the what. Always knowing that what is meant for you is coming for you. There’s lots of quotes out there around that statement, and I love that thought as well, that what is meant for you is coming for you.
Those were some of my favorite takeaways, and I highly encourage you to go back and listen to that episode if you haven’t already.
