My friends voice brought me back into the present. "When you were 19, what did you intend to become Sarah?"
I closed my eyes so that I could tap into the texture and depth of my dream at that point in my life. "A journalist, a broadcaster. Someone who shed light on the contrasts of living."
My friend smiled as she recounted her tale of becoming. She started off with a broken ankle and knew that she wanted to help others have a better experience than she had. And now, here she was many years later in a totally different profession.
As we shared experiences we both began to see that every detail of our lives had brought us to this point. What at the time might have looked like it was a fork in the road was really a stroke of luck. What might have seemed insignificant was profound. What broke our hearts has become our greatest message to the world.
As I look into my life today, I might not be broadcasting from the trenches of some far off country, but I am a broadcaster. My friend pointed this out to me through our conversation. "Sarah, you might not be behind a news room desk sharing the top stories, but you are sharing some top stories about living. People want to know how to live well, to love courageously, and to increase their sense of happiness. You broadcast this message to them in a different way. You share your experiences from their lives and then hopefully that inspires them to view their lives in a different fashion."
I feel so blessed by her friendship and wise counsel. So my friends, "What did you intend to become in your life?" Even if it doesn't resemble the initial blue print, can you see the underlying foundation? How are you living this message and sharing it with the world? Can you still touch the tenderness of your initial vision?
Our lives are full of plot twists, game changers, monumental events, earth shattering moments of living and loving. We have the capacity within us to experience a range of emotions. We also have within us the ability to dream and even more importantly to manifest. As you gaze into your life today, how has your initial vision for your life evolved? Notice how every decision has brought you to this very moment. At this stage of my life, I'm thankful to call myself a broadcaster: Someone who shares insights and information in ways that spark curiosity and insight joy!
