Today is my birthday, my 54th birthday and I keep feeling in my heart, spirit and soul that call to ministry, to artistic and spiritual wellness/meditation ministry. For a number of reasons, I wish I had understood this a heck of a lot sooner in life, but instead of a straight line to my calling, I put myself through one hell of a maize. As I look to the future, I remember an old friend who had the philosophy of “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”. I am meditating on the best possible life and career scenarios, but since life is an adventure I have to embrace the journey forward understanding that life is not a flat line, or if so, not that often. I have to have my goals, be clear in them and my path forward, but I also have to be able to be flexible as to what the journey forward holds. Perhaps that is my greatest lesson at this point.
Namaste, Shalom and Amen
