Now is the time to follow your heart's
Each of these bits of literary artwork inspire within me a sense of hope and encouragement. We all need encouragement from time to time, and if you're even a little like I am, you're probably the first to abandon yourself and your dreams when the going gets tough or when emotions are low.
My son sent me a short text note over the weekend. It was just a simple, "I am missing you" message, and I responded in kind. He grabbed ahold of his dream for entrepreneurship last year, and I watched him awe-inspired as he grasped it with abandon. I've been toying with this dream and idea of working within the knitting industry for a few years, but logistics and the economy have kept me from moving forward. At times, I find myself feeling deeply disappointed at my inaction, yet at the same time, I know that I also greatly value my personal freedom. I expressed my quandary to my son.
Without skipping a beat, he served up words of encouragement and a suggestion for how I might have it all and have it all work.
It has given me new direction... a sense of refreshment within my spirit. I want to start, immediately, and I see nothing in my way.
Sometimes, everything you need is right at your fingertips...you just need a fresh perspective.
