I have missed my blog, my writing and the writing community that has given me ongoing support. So thank you, I have missed you and I’m back. It’s been a very interesting year and one with many insights, epiphanies and transitions. I continue with all three. In fact, I started a little book on my epiphanies and it’s about everyday stuff, that often goes unnoticed. I just stopped to notice this time, with no background noise and no one whispering in my ear. They are my thoughts, my opinions, my take on it and no one else gets a voice. Unless I want them to.
I realize that I am no longer afraid of the unknown. I used to be so goal oriented. I wanted to get there, wherever there was, I don’t know, but I was told to strive towards it anyway. That was a mark of success. At least in western society. It was always the next goal and then the next and then I could stop, be happy, exhale, and feel a sense of achievement, until the next one ran its course and me. It’s what I would call the final goal, but the final goal never comes, does it ? Not unless you’re dead.
The crux of my thinking is life is a continuum and should be. Who wants to stop learning ? Stop gaining wisdom ? Who wants to stand still and go nowhere ? Even when someone’s on a treadmill, they’re still moving. They’re really standing still, not going anywhere. It’s the machine that keeps moving. You just need to move with it. And that’s what I figure life is. Moving with it. And that’s what I’m trying to do. Move with the energy of the universe. Move with what speaks to me. Move with inspiration, what does and does not feel good. I have made no plans for the future, other than to write and do the basics in order to survive and be comfortable. Eventually though, life will offer me a variety of situations, circumstances and choices. And it doesn’t matter if I’m looking at the goal or not. So, I’ll get to choose from the banquet either way. As long as I stay open and I usually am.
As a great saying goes, “I do the legwork. The universe provides the outcome.” So, I figure it this way- if I just show up, it’s all good. When I have passion, excitement and enthusiasm, I am always provided for, often, more than I originally imagined.
