As the day winds down and the time to sleep draws near, I find myself very relaxed and at peace after a quiet Sunday spent in reading, reflection, a little brain teasing and cat pleasing. In short, a perfect day.
I’m doing my best to ride the current for the moment, allowing guidance and direction to come from Source. My mind might be dormant for the moment, the path ahead foggy, but in the meantime, I can continue decluttering and work on maintaining a healthy body.
That’s the interesting thing about life. Even when you’re blocked from doing one thing, there are always several more you can pick up until the block is cleared. I know that, as usual, part of the block for the copywriting course is self-inflicted because the course is currently focusing on sales letters, and my real desire is to write web content. However, I do know, on a conscious level, that the tools I’m acquiring while learning to craft a sales letter are actually the same tools I’ll need to write web content. Just as children learn to print before they learn cursive (they still learn cursive, don’t they?), or crawl before they walk, I’m learning to print or crawl right now, and acquiring skills which will make me a much better web content writer when all is said and done. I have to have the same understanding of the audience and the product or service as I would to write the sales letter. It’s just that the sales letter part, and especially the sales packages, are tougher for me to get my head around.
But I know that if this is the right path for me right now, I’ll figure out how to embrace it fully and completely so that when I’m done, the product I put out will be the very best product for the customer and will exhibit a thorough understanding of their market and product. I do find myself backtracking now and again through the lessons, but just knowing I need to do that is important and a good sign.
It was kind of a bittersweet day with the kids spending the weekend at their new place, making new friends and finding out where everything is around there. We have, in the past, done something for Easter, even if it’s only breakfast and baskets filled with silly stuff (though the tea Heather gave me last year was really clever and sweet!). This was the first of many minor holidays which I probably won’t celebrate as regularly, with them living so far away.
So, it’s not just with the writing and career stuff that I’m struggling to find my way right now. Though, struggling is probably not the right word. It’s not that I’m thrashing around, kicking and fighting. I’m just sitting back, musing over what the changes will bring, but knowing that whatever they are will be what is best for all concerned.
For now, I’m at peace, surrounded by my kitties, and until tomorrow, my grandkitty. I’ve read a little, meditated, played a couple of computer games, talked to friends, and all in all, had a very nice day. I have a feeling that I’m going to look back and really appreciate today as the calm before the storm. I have a feeling that the pace of my life is about to speed up again, so I’m buckling my seatbelt and getting ready to hang on to what could very well be another E ticket ride!
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for those peaceful, introspective days on occasion.
2. I am grateful for the quiet which follows another of my neighbor’s loud parties (complete with constantly shrieking child).
3. I am grateful for more decluttering. The larger tasks are slowly being whittled down to manageable levels.
4. I am grateful for my spirituality. It isn’t like everyone else’s, and I don’t feel the need to convince anyone about the validity of my beliefs, nor apologize for seeing things from my own perspective.
5. I am grateful that I’ve reached a point where those people who think less of me because I don’t share their religious convictions are simply not part of my life any more which is ok for both them and me.
Love and light.
