Over the course of the last several weeks I've found myself in a tailspin of doubt. Not sure if I needed to switch professions, move across the country, call up an old flame, or just hold tight. Do you feel me on this? I felt my internal rhythms were all outta wack! I've been praying a lot, listening to some sadder music than normal, practicing a shit ton more Yoga, and trying to be mindfully introspective. Yesterday I felt the dense internal fog lift and my usual creative super powers felt like they were back on the main menu. As I sat at my computer I thought, why not write about this. I'm sure it has some relatablity? Not everyday is full of unicorns and banners of positivity. Some days are WTF days coupled with a nice Netflix binge. Some days we indulge our inner 'poo poo-er' more than others.
As I sat at my computer yesterday I began writing about the last few weeks, and when I finished I decided I was going to submit this work to Elephant Journal. I'm happy to say I've had other works published by them before but as I scrolled through my history it has been way too long. So I decided to consult a favorite Angel Card deck by Doreen Virtue for confirmation. I placed the deck in my hand and just asked what I should do with this work? I took a breath and flipped up a card, and of course just as promised I got my sign. The card I pulled was "Write" by Toth. Holy Shit...I felt a shiver of goosebumps run through my body.
Even if this piece doesn't get published by Elephant Journal, I feel like I got my groove back. I'm not going to abandon my dreams of writing because of a little internal weather disturbance. I'm a writer, so I'm just going to keep on writing. I'll write about the rainbows, but I'll also be writing about the courageous ways in which we show up in our lives.
Thanks for listening and let me know about any Universal kick in the pants moments that you have had recently. We truly are all in this together! Don't be ordinary my friends, but freaking extraordinary!!
In Gratitude and Love,
