This is your life...

For years I lived as a closeted-writer. I have since come out. Everyone knows my textual preferences now. When it comes to writing, I don't struggle anymore. When I sit to write, I write. Opportunities are opening up, slowly and surely. This is my life...now.

When I was in the closet, I kept wishing for this day to come. I used to daydream about writing for a living and then, as I glanced to my life then, all sorts of confusion, frustration and sadness set in. If only I could write, if only this, if only that, my life could start. I didn't realize that my life had started. I just wasn't paying attention. Whatever was happening at the moment was life.

What I learned during the years that I spent wishing for another career, for another place to live, for another reality is invaluable. I didn't understand that there was a lesson in every experience. If I had been more aware, I probably would have struggled less and arrived here sooner.

We need to experience in order to learn. In that order. We will go through what we need to go through until we learn patience, discipline, honesty, appreciation for others, work ethic, communication, sharing, self-control, respect, kindness, our purpose, courage, the power of thoughts, our connection to Spirit and to each other or whatever it is that we need to learn in order to grow and move forward. The intensity of each experience will depend on the intensity of the lesson and on our willingness to participate fully in life.

Today is a good day to be thankful for whatever is going on in your life. Meditate on what is happening. Learn, grow, share, do no harm. Live each moment with all of your senses. This is your life. The sooner you live it, wholeheartedly, the sooner it becomes more the life you wish for. This is your life...
