Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now".
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It has been exactly like this. After writing that sad and blue post about my cabin fever moment, after hitting a new challenge which made the world feel big and bad, something inside me shifted. I kicked my arse in gear. Enough of this stalemate. Make it happen!
I made a pact with myself. I decided to just go for it. Forget about the snow banks, forget about spring bringing me everything I am dreaming of. I started to travel into Portland for whole days of wandering the city, volunteering in a beautiful writing center, meeting wonderful souls for coffee and the arranging of meditation classes.
I got out of my head. And back into the world. I made the decision, and providence moved.
A whole stream of events has, indeed, started flowing. It has led to all manner of fascinating projects unfolding. It has made me remember that we have to move - we have to decide, we have to make a commitment to do something. Nothing will fall from the heavens, unless we go outside and look up, and make ourselves available for that
miracle to land.
