Attempting to find clarity in life can be demanding. The idea of having a journey that is free from competing distractions is a goal. I want, like many, to have a defined path.
With this project, the podcast production and the author publishing journey, freedom has come to me by having a well-defined plan established.
This is a first for me. I have always wondered what my role should be or what mark I could leave in the world. Once I stopped asking those questions and naturally started walking on the path of this particular journey, I did not wonder. I knew.
I knew what I would produce a podcast for readers and authors. This podcast would allow new readers to connect with authors that were unknown to them. For authors, it would serve as an encouraging resource regarding the business of publishing.
I knew further that I would write regularly enough to finally finish the novels I have been playing with for years. I knew I would publish and produce, but most importantly, I knew I was embracing a creative life!
There have not been any ambiguous, murky waters for me to paddle. The path has been so bright that those around me have not questioned the journey. They may have examined the scope of my dreaming, but not the mission.
I will not claim the I have clarity in every aspect of my life, I do not. But, with this one part, it is clear to me. The more I press forward and embrace this journey; the more natural the rest of my life seems to become. I am not sure if that is the pay off for saying yes to a creative life, but I am not questioning it, either. I am relishing the moments.
