A Reminder...

Has the universe ever reached out and demanded your attention?

Just a few minutes ago, while taking a quick time out, I opened my Facebook page to find the details for a Girl’s Night Out event I’m attending on Saturday.

As I was reading through the post, I saw this out of the corner of my eye …


For a large portion of my adult life I have struggled with what I should be “When I grow up”.

I have so many aspirations, loves and interests…

After I wrote my first few blog posts, and published them for the world to see, the responses shocked me.

I had never thought I had any writing talent.

All I ever did was tell a story… no big deal.

I have no problem announcing to the world that I am crafty, or that I have a knack for interior design.

These are things I CAN do,

But are they what I do BEST?

Having the confidence to believe I am a writer, and that with a little practice, it could be what I do BEST, is hard.

Choosing that goal is scary.

This was exactly the nugget of wisdom I needed today.

It was posted on the right hand side of my computer screen as a “Previous Status Update” from my girl Jessica.

Just a little reminder from the Universe.

To choose one big goal, and believe I have what it takes to achieve it.

To stay focused and confident.

To start with a whisper and eventually build to a shout,

I am a writer.

Very inspiring! I can relate being a young mom with two college certificates in fields that I am good at but not what I am BEST at, it was a really big internal struggle for me to find my true passion which is designing clothes, even though I don't know exactly where I am headed, I am confident in myself and my passion for business. It only took me 23 years, a son and $25000 in school loans to get where I am at today however I know that this is where I am meant to be and the rest will come in due time! Thanks for your post, it was a real eye-opener. (Thanks to Jessica too!)
