My first blog, "Who Would I Be?" was discussed this morning with my husband, Michael. He looked directly at me saying, "That's a good question. Who would you be?"
I was stopped flat by hearing the question posed outside of my own head. My thought was, "Yes, he's right, who would I be?" Given that I had asked, what was the answer? I was surprised, really, that it started to burst through to the surface.
Slowly, one word at a time with pause between them, "I would be me, but I would be me expressing my potential creativity." Then the answer sped up, "You know, sharing my writing. My thoughts, my questions. I'd be writing about what interests me the most. The power in thoughts, in words." I felt my eyes flash wider, "...and oh my gosh! That's what I'm now doing! This IS who I would be. This IS who I am! I'm doing it. The blog. I'm doing me!"
Now then, it might seem that revelation took a mere two days to unfold. My first blog was January 30th, and the answer to "Who Would I Be?" comes today, on February 1st? Wouldn't that have been nice, but that's not how it worked. "Who Would I Be?" was written on December 3, 2018. More notably, it took me sixty-five years to even first think of thoughtfully posing that question.
My walk into me has taken decades to reach. But it's never to late to pose an inquiry. It is in the sincere asking of the question that the template for the answer is given. It helps us out if we are also sincerely listening for the response.
See you again, for blog #3.
