You might be surprised by what’s coming. Keep heading for the mountain.
Where are you headed?
I’m asking you a question. Please don’t stare at me blankly, like a deer in the headlights.
Dear, but not a deer.
You are dear. You are dear because there will only ever be one you. And you have something to contribute. You’re going somewhere. If you don’t know where that is, rack your brains for an answer. Because if you don’t know, you won’t even get to the base of the mountain, much less the top, before you run out of time. You will die with the song still in you.
“Many people die with their music still in them. Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it time runs out.” — Oliver Wendall Holmes
But how can you find out?
Is this concept new to you? Or maybe no one has asked you for a long time. But I’m asking now. How can you find the answer to this question?
Think about it. Was there ever a mountain you set out for? For example: I remember the Sadie Hawkins dance my junior year in high school. My date asked me what I wanted to do with my life. I said, “I want to be a writer.” To which she replied, “I want to be an architect.” Just then, I remembered that I had once wanted to be an architect. And you probably already guessed what happened next: I became an architect and she became a writer.
So please do this.
Consider the question: where am I headed? Because you might be surprised by the answer if you will really consider it. And please watch this brief (under 20 minutes) talk by writer Neil Gaiman, author of Coraline, and Sandman, among other famous books, and think about where you’re headed. You might be surprised.
Want more help?
I can help you find where you’re headed. You might be surprised.
And you have a couple of options for your next step. You could contact me and describe what you’re going through. And I’ll be in touch with suggestions.
