What a week… so many things up in the air, and still waiting for some of the cards to fall. It’s an interesting thing to watch yourself (and others) in slow motion, which has been my experience in the past few days. I’ve thought several times that I had no control over events to come, but that was never really the case. Last night I spoke to someone who became an unlikely mentor. She strengthened my spirit and perspective, which I am forever grateful for. This morning I woke up with a new attitude, and therefore, new opportunity. That drastically changed things. You know who you are – thank you.

I am still waiting on some big news this week about my script. I know ultimately I will be fine either way…I can still make things happen with or without that boost (though, that would be a pretty big boost!). I will know by Friday, so literally any minute. Please send the posi vibes my way! I am almost done with the revisions from Charles and Carrie Beth. Those two put in a lot of work editing it up, and I’m enjoying making the upgrades. This weekend it will go to three more people for notes.

Through challenges sometimes comes our best gifts. They can be the push we need to take action where we otherwise might be too comfortable to do so. I am a great believer in the master plan…whoever and whatever is in control of that. Maybe we are ultimately in charge without ever even knowing it. It’s hard to say. There may still be a dash of fate and chance mixed along in with the map of our lives. Sometimes crazy things happen. Sometimes amazing things happen. All I know is when I feel happy and fulfilled, the tougher times are worth it. 100%. I hope you feel that way too about your own life. Onward & upward! Always. 🙂
