A Question Posed
Dear Constant Reader,
There are somethings that I believe in with all my heart. Things that have no tangible proof other than my gut tells me so. One such truth for me is if you are open and willing…and quite often in dire need…there will be moments when the universe will speak to you.
Ok, now before you think I’ve gone off the deep end, know that I speak of not of an actual conversation but more of a directing of purpose and passion. In life there are moments…actions…encounters that will help steer the course of your life. Sometimes we are able to see them later in life with some consideration and retrospect. But there are also those rare and beautiful moments where you are so open you know the moment as it happens.
Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. -Steven Pressfield
It will take the form of a directness so clear and profound that it resonates within you down to your core. Your very spirit will vibrate like a struck bell. And please trust this my dear Constant Reader, you will definately know when it happens.
I had one such moment this past weekend, when I was speaking to my beloved Comadre and she asked the question…
Are you interested or are you committed?
Maybe I have come across this question before, maybe not, but it is one thing to be asked this question and it is quite another to really and truly hear it…digest the intent of those words and then to be honest with yourself about what the answer is.
Those words have played in a loop in my mind since then. My dear Constant Reader you know the octopus rears her head with me time and time again. My tentacles stretch and begin to maneuver to so many projects. But then comes this question…
It is so very easy to over extend oneself on things that are interests but in actuality we are not really committed to pursuing. Am I over reaching in interests to the detriment of that which I am truly committed? Even as I write this the question replays and I am pulled to look into so many aspects of my life and ask it again and again.
In the pursuit of my dreams, am I interested in being the greatest version of myself or am I committed to giving every ounce of my power, my passion and my purpose to become the greatest version of myself?
I stand before this questions, the answer resonating within me, and I am humbled.
