It has been almost a year since I have been on this site. I recently logged on to use some of the video blog links for a job I had applied to. I was reading my old blogs, and yep, same ole same ole, but I can't complain although my pay is well below what I should be making I am in a much better office environment and that makes all the difference in the world. However, with that being said, it is not my dream to be in an office everyday doing work for someone else; It is my dream to travel internationally, meet other people, learn about culture and religion, and someone find a way to share that with the World through writing, humor, videos. Have not figured out the how...but I finally have figured out the 'what'.
I think too many of us know in our hearts what we truly want in life, yet are too afraid to 'put it out there', isn't this what this forum is for? I recently read Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist after years of trying to read it, starting and not finishing and had a major AHA moment. I set a goal for myself last weekend to read it no matter what, and I realized I had picked this book at this time in my life because I was ready to receive the message; Had I read it at any other time it simply would have just been a book that I read. The story is about a young shepard boy who decides to pursue his spiritual journey, or his Personal Legend after having a recurring dream. Most of you have read this book, but since reading it I have had too many coincidences (I know I know there are no such things as coincidences) that have occurred which have ignited my passion of following my own "Personal Legend". I applied for a job that I know is a long shot, but I applied anyway, because it made me feel good and I thought, what the heck the worst they can say is no. Let me tell you, putting that application together was so much fun it does not matter if I get the job, just having that 'spark' back in my life is reward enough.
To all of you in the CCOR family, what is it that you really want, not what you think is safe, or what you think society wants you to be, what do you really want to co-create? I have found mine...just have to start the journey.
Sending you all good vibes for the day!
