A lesson I learned

So recent circumstances have taught me a very valuable lesson indeed. I learned that the perfect opportunity may not, in fact, be the perfect opportunity as life currently exists. I learned that everything can line up, all the arrows can point in the same direction, and you can still discover that this was not what the universe had planned for you. And since the universe trumps all best intentions and thoughts of what I think is best for me, I am grateful for this opportunity. I am grateful for the knowledge that I can leave the Kansas City area, when it is the right time to do so…I am also grateful that I get to stay around KC a while longer.
The jobs that I currently hold, allow me to stay in education, allow me to pay my bills…and perhaps most sacred to me currently, allow me to write to my heart’s content. Having the undesignated time in the evenings has been so fantastic for me (once I realized that coffee works in the afternoons as well as it works in the mornings) and keeping this schedule will allow me to finish my doctorate papers, my dissertation work, and my novels. My muse is ecstatic that I didn’t get a job, that professionally would have been amazing, but would have taken away some of my writing time. She is thrilled that our play time has not been put on a hiatus…that we can still write for hours each day without interruption. I am a little disappointed, but my absolute faith that the universe is driving…lets me know that this too…is what was supposed to happen…and how can I argue with that. How could I possibly see this as a negative when I get to be the doctoral student I need to be and the author I want to be. I haven’t been able to write much in the past few weeks due to stress and the state of limbo…but I have a feeling the words will be flowing quite smoothly once again. Buckle up…it’s going to be a good ride.



  1. I admire your positive outlook!

    • It would have been a great opportunity…but this way I get to write more and see what else is out there…hard to be sad when you look at it that way. 🙂

  2. Michelle,

    You. Are. Amazing!
    I admire your never give up attitude and I have zero doubt of my strong sense that I sense you have, and that is: you are built to inspire all who take the time to listen to your messages by whatever muse inspired forms. Believe it. I know I do as well. Hope that made sense. It did in my head. 😉 And thank you for emailing me and this link… you have no idea on your timing and how much I needed to read, listen and learn from your message here. Universe. All empowering.
