I’ve had this thought, idea, dream if you will in the back of my mind. Yea, that’s what I want someday. I’ll look into it and pursue it someday. When I was confronted with the idea of some one beating me to the punch I panicked a little bit. I began to spin my wheels pursuing this someday idea that I wasn’t quite ready for or at least I didn’t feel ready. The idea was that I’d have time to prepare, absorb, research, sleep and meditate on it. When it became clear that those options might not exist I began working outside my comfort zone, abandoning that inner voice of wisdom. Caught up in the excitement of the event it took me sometime to realize that maybe this someday I dreamed of was no longer entirely what I wanted, my priorities shifted.
When we take the time to quiet the mind, then we can really hear what is right for us.
