Imagine the morning before the sun rises, in that still quiet place when it’s still dark outside and so quiet that the birds aren’t even singing yet. You step out onto your porch to greet the day and you take a deep breath and cough. Not from the fresh morning air but from your crazy neighbor below you that is burning stuff at 5:00 a.m. Nothing criminal is afoot here, it is only I …the crazy neighbor …doing her homework… in the dark. Part of which is to take something that I’ve written and then burn it to release it. I really don’t want anyone watching me while I do it. Much better that they should think I’m smoking something instead, right?
My days are filled with homework; personal, group and learning. The majority of that happens before I begin my workday somewhere between 5:00 and 5:30 a.m. (depending on how many pages I have to burn) and then I get to write which I love. Don’t get me wrong, writing is work like everything else and there are constantly new things to learn, (more homework) and yet I find that it’s like breathing to me. I’m grateful to have found that place.
Things are really shifting for me since I’ve become a part of my Spiritual Business Mentoring Group led by Sunny Dawn Johnston. It has really begun to propel me forward into my next steps of learning, being, writing and growing. I have found that being accountable to someone else keeps me honest and on track. I realized today that I have made more progress in a month than I have in a very long time. Truthfully, I was stuck spinning my wheels and now there is forward motion. I am excited to see what is unfolding here and very grateful to a part of this Spiritual Business Mentoring Group. There is hope, there are words written on many, many pages and who knows what’s next?
So if you happen to be out in the wee hours of the morning and see little bits of light and flame sprinkled here and there don’t be concerned just know that there are probably several of us out there doing the same homework.
Sending you good vibes!
