Prompt: Lesson learned. What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? author: Tara Weaver
The best lesson I learned is listening to my heart, even when you hear that doubting voice or people think your ideas are odd or strange. My intuition can't shake the need to continue. I feel like I have to fight many detours; It feels like a circus. Juggle this n' that, tame the Lion, let the clowns have their folly, walk a tight rope, and dare to master the flying trapeze. There have been a lot of sideshows, packing up and moving to the next town or city. (as a military spouse).
The Ring Master(Master Chef-my husband) promotes the next gig to us.“Oh, you like Florida, we can go to Disney, etc.”. All is fine for awhile, then I want off the Merry go round. The ride soon will be over and there will be a new act. I can smell the sweetness of cotton candy, the magic of illusion, and the reflection of my glass house dreams. There is one voice I constantly hear, "You can't quit now" It is loud, so I continue, hoping my intuition doesn't misguide me. Is my heart guiding me to the right gig? Time will tell, but I know my next performance has to work out, so my Ring Master can retire. I have a few more months to enjoy the illusion and walk the high wire, before I leap. I hope the safety net is in place.
When hubby takes a bow, and the light dims I know it will be my turn to perform, broken dreams or not. Can one’s heart steer them wrong? It is the greatest show on Earth, to invest in your dreams even if the act is small; It’s impact is life changing~
