Have you ever been moving along a certain path, one fairly cut and dry, when suddenly the wind shifted unexpectedly? And when you looked up at the signs guiding you through your life you noticed a new arrow? And not just any arrow but one with blinking lights flashing the words: THIS WAY, SILLY!?
It’s not that the journey until that point had been wrong, but something new had presented itself — something you hadn’t exactly foreseen. And really, it made so much sense, looking back at other steps along the way. You’d been heading in this direction all along; it had just taken you a while to realize it.
As you’ve guessed by now, I’m sure, this has happened to me recently and it’s been quite a revelation. I was cruising along in my life as a freelance writer, working on a few other larger projects besides, thinking I was moving over here, when in fact, I was meant to be over there. Not that there’s anything wrong with here. In fact, here might very well be a place to which I’ll return at some point; in fact, it’s likely. But for now, there are so many forces drawing me to there and there is a very exciting place to be!
Next week I’m going to share more of the details of what there is, and what some of the next steps toward getting fully entrenched in there will entail. For now, let me just say that doors have been opening at a rapid rate, and I’m growing more aware that I’ll be more messenger than creator in this latest possible venture. Yes, I can be creative in sharing this particular message, but it’s not really about me. That said, I’m thrilled at the chance to be the carrier of it.
Oh, I know. I’m not being fair. I’m speaking in code. But hang with me if you would be so kind. I really do want to share more — I just can’t. Not yet. But the day is coming.
Thanks for sticking with me in these elusive days of code, and for being with me as I move more assuredly onto this exhilarating new path.
Q4U: Have you ever read the signs wrong? Was the discovery more exciting or scary?
