Okay, it’s late, I really need to get some rest (one of my commitments to myself), but I am so jazzed that someone posted a comment on one of my posts that I had to express my excitement!
My ex-bf used to say “Always interpret omens favorably” (probably still does, though I wouldn’t actually know about that.) I don’t know if those were his words, or if he borrowed them from someone else, but I have taken them to heart. And I’m taking the fact that someone posted a comment here, the day after I started the dang thing, as a favorable omen!
In my experience, whenever my life is in Flow, when I’m on the Right Path, the Universe has a way of letting me know. When I started making art, within a span of a few months I had THREE articles published about me and my art in local newspapers. That’s what I’m talking about.
This is the Universe’s way of saying, “Yeah, honey, FINALLY you’re doing what we’ve been trying to get you to do for years (you dang fool)! Keep going!”
Meanwhile, my ex-ex-bf (you know, the one before the most recent ex), whom I adore, just sent me an email praising my “brilliance” (his word) for my other blog, The Dating Queen (which may or may not be of interest to you, dear imaginary reader, but in case you’re curious, it’s aimed at savvy single women, and is subtitled “find yourself while looking for love,” and in fact, the theme is really pretty much the same as this blog when you come right down to it, but since I may not feel compelled to write forever about dating I figured it made sense to also create a blog about something I know I’ll feel compelled to write about forever, and which also doesn’t have an imaginary audience that’s limited to single women – capice?)
I realize from your perspective I may be grasping at straws, but I am choosing to interpret all omens/signs/messages favorably, no matter how small, thank you very much!
And today I did a lot of Bliss-following! I wrote a lot, I painted and made major headway on several new pieces for my new Zazzle shop, and oh, btw, did I mention I created a new Zazzle shop? It doesn’t look the way I want it to yet, but it’s got stuff on it, and I’ve actually sold something already!
And that is for sure another message from the Universe.
So tonight I feel like I’m on the path of following my evolving Blisses, or at least some of them anyway. (Music and dance are getting short shrift these days, though I did play guitar for a few minutes this morning – musn’t forget about that!) And I also treated myself to a fun social outing (or inning? is it still an outing if you actually go to someone else’s house?), because the semi-private calligraphy class that I’ve been teaching got rescheduled (one student’s sick, another has a deadline) so my evening was free, and rather than work all night – my typical M.O., being, as you’ve most likely already gathered, gentle imaginary reader, a rather driven sort – I decided to get out and be with people. Because being with people that I enjoy is one of the things that makes me happy, and my commitment to myself is to create the life I really, really want, which includes all the things that make me happy, not just the creating part. Capice?
So all in all it’s been a great day.
