This morning I received a phone call, just as I was getting ready to take the kids to school. It was a very energetic woman calling from the ALS Society of Canada, and with that call I KNEW things had shifted from the vague possibility of doing something, to the potential reality that it would/could/should happen.
That call must be part of a wake up plan that I need to get me moving forward. Because, it seems no matter how many things line up for me, how often I get that shivery feeling that this was all divinely planned in advance, the number of times I recognize people and circumstances and opportunities converging all at once… still, I catch myself thinking that this couldn’t possibly be happening to me! But it is.
This morning was no different. I got off the phone flying with excitement and creative energy, then immediately began to wonder if I’m getting in over my head, if I have a real unique marketable idea, and how will I really do this? The biggest obstacle being that I need to take the time to write down what I’ve got in mind.
So, I’m taking another step out… or a series of steps… starting this new blog, leaving my other blogs (sometimessuicidalmama.com, and mygracenotes.com) on simmer for now (there’s lots of stuff for you to read there if you’re interested), and spending some time writing down a plan. I’d much rather blog, or write poetry, or just surf, dream and talk about it, but the time has come to put solid words down and commit to a plan, a proposal or something that indicates that I’ve thought this through and I know where I’m headed for the most part.
I know that sounds pretty vague, but I believe it will all be revealed in time. I know it’s just being revealed to me too!
On task, staying on the path, eyes wide open,
