I've always had a heart for touching and inspiring people and spreading love but unfortunately as an artist it's not always the most lucrative profession when there is heart behind it. It's so easy to just give up and do the common or ordinary things. I am not common nor ordinary. I have always been a little different. I even remember when I was 11 yrs. old, just becoming a tender little hippie, my mom asked me "who are you?" as she marveled at my thought of my protests to make love not war, kiss don't kill, saving the planet and vegetarianism. Thinking back on that brings back fond memories that nourishes my soul. I appreciate having a heart to do good by others and the planet, especially at such a young age, and standing up for what I believe in. Daily I try to remember that young tender love and act on it. It's what feeds and fuels me. It's what gets me out of bed. It's what feels most natural to me. I plan on embracing it for many lifetimes.
Recently, I had really felt like I'd hit yet another road block and things weren't lining up the way I wanted nor at the time I'd expected. I had been really torn over the next steps to take in my life these last few weeks which had me doubt my purpose: to spread love, give love and be love. Wonderful opportunities had sprung up everywhere and right along with them were great challenges. I didn't know what to do. I was stuck. I prayed on it last night and asked the Creator to show me in a way that I can understand and know that the message is for me what I should do. And in wonderful Creator fashion I was given my answer.
So to squash any doubt or apprehension the Creator sent me a little message today. We'd just finished eating at one of our fave lunchtime spots where everyone can find at least 2 or 3 things they like and can eat, I passed by the large basket of fortune cookies at the Host's station that I've passed dozens of times before. I've never reached in to grab one because of the gluten, but today I said "what the heck, I can at least read the fortune and throw the cookie out". I grabbed one and read the fortune. It was EXACTLY what I needed to hear in that moment, for this season of doubt that I was in. I thank the Creator for this little confirmation that I'm doing exactly what I need to be doing and I'm also glad to know that I will succeed.
Much love, many blessings,
