Hiding In Plain Sight

 

Last night I was speaking with my talented singer songwriter friend Robin Renee and found myself musing about a phenom that sometimes feels like it plagues me, or at the very least is a source of frustration. I call it the ‘not there yet.’ Remember when you were a kid, riding in the back seat of the car and you persistently would ask your parents, “Are we there yet?” I know I did it. My cousin Billy used to ask my Aunt Sue “How more longer?”  It sounds cute when I think about it, but now, it feels obnoxious when I apply it to my impatience with the process from conception to manna-festation of what I REALLY REALLY want. I asked her if she wonders why she isn’t more well known and that since her skyrocket to world wide fame hasn’t occurred yet, did she doubt that it still would?  I go through that experience myself when I question my own not quite meteoric rise to be a ‘mover and shaker’ of the caliber that I desire, who makes a difference on a global scale. I also wonder about this whole calling in The One relationship dynamic. There are times when no matter how focused I am on bringing him into my life and then paradoxically, how necessarily I release it to Divine Timing, as with everything else I have ever invited and subsequently saw coming to fruition, I still have my doubts. And I teach this stuff!  It’s like the kid’s game where you are looking for a hidden object and your friends tell you “You’re getting warmer.”  or “You’re getting colder.” until you eventually find what you are looking for. Sometimes it is hiding in plain sight. I wonder if everything we desire is like that and is waiting for us to open our hearts and eyes to take in what it is we most cherish.

When I roll back the clock, I can list hundreds if not thousands of amazing creations that came to me by serendipity or Divine Design. And for that I count myself immensely grateful.

Life Smoothie
In conversation with my flight attendant friend Jewelee Landis, about whom I have written many times over the years, we were musing about life being like a smoothie. She, like most of us, wears many hats.  Hers- wife, mom, daughter, granddaughter,  friend, doggy and kitty mom and now grandmom to n

What Does Your Facebook Page Say About You?
What did we ever do before the Phenom of Facebook?  It is where people turn for companionship and to relieve boredom. To learn what is happening in the world, without watching the news. It serves the purpose of entertainment and to gain a different perspective,  as well as to rally the troops for

For Me
I had a revelationary thought today as I recognized that for much of my adult life, I have done things for the benefit of others first and foremost, or to please someone so as to gain or not lose love and/or approval. Now, since the heart opening experience in June, I do more things for my own satis
