Leap and the net…
It is a rare occurrence when you find a niche in life and the person who is technically your boss allows you to blossom into a joyful being.
A business acquaintance was remarking on his first visit to the store. We have sold his unique squash seed oils since opening, but had never met face-to-face. His kind compliments went beyond making my ego soar, they confirmed I am at a happy point in life.
I leapt and the net appeared. It has holes; it is after all a net. The holes are things I used to think were necessary for contentment and the cavities of my financial responsibility “guilt monster.” I will never travel in the world of financial freedom, but the travel I do every day down my little back roads to being satisfied with my life are the strings of the net that support me.
“This store embodies your energy.”
I stopped and absorbed the concept, beyond mere platitude, a light went off in my head. A warm glow filled the air and being recognized made me feel very strong.
Two years ago, for my birthday, a wonderful friend gave me a frame with photos of my life at the time and this saying: Leap and the net will appear. It was a scary time; I was running out of money and spending my meager reserves on writing and publishing my book. I had no direction and was still basking in my world of unemployed bliss. This friend and I were blessed to have daily trail rides, and I wrote and wrote and collected thoughts and words like wildflowers. She believed in my dream even when I had doubts.
Life is different now, and maybe I never really needed the net but it was comforting to think it was there; or still is.
