I am in the groove of receiving. Lots of opportunities to write are coming my way. Some are unexpected and I might have been underwhelmed when they arrived. It is interesting what God presents to me that I would have never thought of for myself. But, instead of questioning the irony, in some cases, I simply am saying, “thank you”. Just another reminder that I don’t have a clue what is best for me or my career path.
One offer, I was on the cusp of saying no. Really, I was kind of being snobbish thinking that the writing opportunity offered was beneath me. But, then my ego stepped aside. I was able to see that any writing gig presented provides chances to continue practicing my craft and get paid. I mean, seriously, who says no to money? Well, I was about to. The art of receiving and practicing gratitude is all a part of my process.
I forget that God has this plan and all I need to do is follow it. Taking chances on things that I would not have picked for me, opens up more doors of endless opportunities. Sometimes instead of fighting the current, I simply to need to flow with it.
