Operation Michael Cera: Your Dream isn’t a Longshot After All. (#31writenow #nablopomo)

by P. Braithwaite


So if you’re just tuning in to my weekly series, Operation Michael Cera, here’s what you need to know:

  1. I love Michael Cera. You know, the guy from Juno? George Michael Bluth from Arrested Development? No…no…not Michael Ealy. Michael Cera. Yes…Michael Cera.George-Michael-Bluth-george-michael-bluth-741945_400_257
  2. This love was a long held secret until I blogged about it and devised Operation I Love Michael Cara which is basically a mini-experiment in manifestation. I’ve set my intention to see if the Universe will conspire on my behalf to help me meet Michael Cera before the end of the summer. So we’re clear, I’m not stalking him or deliberately setting out to find him. I’m trusting the Universe to work this shit out.

You can read the complete post here, but that just about sums it up.

The most common question I’m getting about this is, why the EFF are you blogging about Michael Cera?

Easy, because I love him.

BUT…since I’ve made a deal with myself that I only blog about things that can somehow help or inspire other people…I’ve turned this love into a living manifestation experiment. See, my secret hope is that you guys play this game with me. I want to manifest a chance encounter with Michael Cera, but maybe you want to manifest something else. Maybe your secret desire is a bit random and ridiculous (you know, like meeting Michael Cera). So that’s why I’m blogging about this. I believe that the Universe brings us what we desire, and so I’m doing this so ya’ll can believe that too. The Universe always provides.

And now, today’s installment…

I was taking a little depression nap the other day when my phone vibrated. I ignored it because, well, my couch is awesome and I take napping very seriously. Plus, my mind has been racing and so when I sat on the couch it was really in an effort to relax and calm my mind. No calming thoughts ever come as a result of my vibrating phone. So yeah, I ignored it for a while. Anyway, when I  woke up (later than I intended), I saw this waiting for me:

And then I was all like….

 And then I said…image (3)

And I meant it.

I WILL take this as a sign that my silly little summer plan is actually quite attainable. Let me say this again, ya’ll: OUR LONGSHOTS are ACTUALLY ATTAINABLE. Michael Cera is a person. Other people have seen him, and logic would have it, I can probably see him too.

I will see him. I’m amusingly confident about it.

The other lesson here is this: when something that you want to happen, happens to someone close to you – take that as a message from the Universe that what you’re manifesting is close! If you’re dying to find love, and people around you are falling into it – know that the Universe making deliveries in your neighborhood! The Cable Company will be knocking on your door in no time. Don’t waste time being jealous, know that your dream isn’t a longshot after all.

What you’re waiting for is on its way for you.

I asked this before, but I’ll ask again, what longshot are you manifesting? Let’s work on it together!

PS. No, I’m NOT camping out at the aforementioned establishment to find Michael Cera. Ironically though, I used to live around the corner. The hamburgers are amazing. Mr. Cera is clearly a man of impeccable taste.
