Do you ever think you have a plan and then something comes around and you shoot off in a completely different direction? No? Liar.
I’m convinced that every single person on this planet has something in mind but it hasn’t quite worked out the way they planned. Maybe taking a slight detour or maybe a whole ‘nother direction entirely. That’s the story of my life. I think I know what I’m doing. I see the trajectory I’m on, and then out of nowhere, BAM! I’m writing a story about my life and sharing it with the world. Not unwelcome, just unexpected.
I’ve tried a few different things. Not super different, but enough to know that I’ve definitely taken a different road this time around. Those roads have twisted and turned and taken me through completely different worlds. And I don’t regret any of them. They’ve been great. I’ve learned a LOT. Some of it I thought I knew but apparently it needed some reinforcing. But it’s okay. Those lovely twists and turns are worth it in the end. They made me who I am.
I’m happy with that person. I love that I work hard on my family, my writing, and everything else in my life. I love that I still try to think outside the box and make things happen. I firmly believe that things will work out for the better, in the way they are supposed to – whether that’s the way we have planned or not.
That’s where I am today. It started with the word search books, then the memoire, and now I’m contracting out to write blogs and web content and product descriptions. I’m editing and reviewing. It’s a funny twist but I absolutely love this road. The viewpoints are amazing and I can stop the car and breathe whenever I’m ready to do so.
I hope you’re finding your passion. And that it’s filling you with a sense of purpose, a drive that you can’t resist. I’m typing this very late at night because I just finished a project but I’m still wide awake because I’m hyped up. I just wrote a 6,000 page review for a company as a part of an ongoing project. All I can say is, “Wow.”
This life is good. Put your all into it and do whatever it is that you love to do. And share it with me! I’d love to hear where you are on this never-ending road trip.
