Think About It

“One day you finally knew / what you had to do, and began . . .” (Mary Oliver). Imagine knowing what life was calling you to do and the call was a roaring noise you couldn’t dismiss. Would you cast aside all the distractions, naysayers, doubters, and angry voices that try to dissuade you from beginning? You’ll know when you know and when you know you are caught in a zero – sum game where there are only two choices. Either answer the call with a resounding yes, or make an excuse and turn away from it. I think we hear this call numerous times during our lives. It may be asking something different of us. It may be challenging us. it may be asking us to push boundaries we never believed we could push. Are you ready to begin?
