Since childhood I did things that were different and out of the norm in the fields of creativity and self-expression. There are many of us who have had this experience. Being different oozes out of us no matter what we do. Pretty sure we heard, “Different wasn’t normal”, whatever that is. Perhaps it meant being on the outside looking in or being bullied. Both of which I experienced, still on the outside looking in but enjoying and appreciating it more than ever.
The past year has been a tough one for me and mine. My recovery has taken longer than anticipated which has had a definite impact on all areas of life. The one thing that has kept me going is my belief in a power greater than myself, followed by meditation-which took me two to three months to be able to do so without my head hurting from the drugs pumped into me to create a coma and fight a serious (life threatening) lung infection, pushing myself to the limit each and every day and of course positive prayer, known as scientific prayer or treatment. So what have I learned? Wow, things will never be the same for me, my outlook on life has had a definite change and what is important to me is now at the forefront of my life, more than ever before. Will be pursuing a career, besides writing, which was a childhood goal. Now that I am moving forward at a faster rate it is time for me to change the timber of this blog and in what and how it is presented. Over the next few weeks you will see the differences emerging, slowly but surely. I will be addressing issues in a new positive, direct way.
There is always a turning point for us, for me it was last year. The past two weeks have seen a change in goals and the last vestiges of not accepting being different have fallen away. Oftentimes it takes a life changing event to induce this new perspective and goals to more fully accept being different. So it was with me. Perhaps we are given a second chance because the Infinite isn’t done with us yet and perhaps, just perhaps, we have something more to give and contribute to help others as well as ourselves and those in our sphere of life.
The only constant in life and the universe is change. There comes a time in our life we need to rebrand our creative work, to recreate ourselves, at times it is thrust upon us and we appear to be unwilling participants in the beginning. Change gives us fodder for growth into new and exciting individuals. Part of being different is change; it is learning to utilize our unique and diverse abilities and talents to the fullest extent for success.
What was the turning pointing in your life?
