Listening To What You're Being Told

First of all I would like to thank all the guests and visitors who attended the first H'artfelt Christmas Blog party. There are some very creative ladies out there, and I am so happy I got to see all their wonderful posts! I am sure next year will be even better! Now on to the post:

For some reason when people suggest something to us, we all too often tend to brush it off as a natural first course of action. I am not sure why that is. Even when it's something we are told over and over, we still don't always take notice.

For years people kept suggesting I try meditation and I brushed it off as new age hokum and nonsense. But finally the message got through. When a message is supposed to get through to us it somehow always does in the end, doesn't it? So finally when the message was received I tried it and low and behold it's a pretty wonderful thing that has helped the stress in my neck immensely.

But lately that isn't the only message that has been trying to get through. Recently I told you that I wanted to try my hand at writing. I have a wonderful plot line all figured out and wrote character profiles and the whole works. Then I stalled. I don't know why, I can tell the whole story in my head, but for some reason I can't get it down on paper...well not paper, screen actually, but you know what I mean.

People keep telling I should write children's books. Even my own Mother keeps saying it. But I have been brushing that off because I don't have children, nor do I even know any. I didn't think I could since it seemed that having children in your life would be a prerequisite for writing children's books.

But night before last when I laid down to go to sleep, an idea came to me. I thought about it off and on yesterday and this morning I sat down to write. I didn't do character profiles, I only have a rough idea of the plot, but the words just flowed out onto the screen. And I think...they just might have been pretty good. Of course I am not sure, and I have no kids to bounce them off of.

I don't know where this is going to take me, or if it will ever see the light of day. I have no idea how to get a book published or the legalities involved. But if this really was a message I was supposed to receive, I feel confident that the things I need to know will present themselves the way things we are supposed to know always present themselves, and the plot and words will continue to flow.

I will keep you updated on my progress. In the mean time, sit back and listen for a just might be ignoring a message you are supposed to receive.

All things you need are revealed to you at he right time, just write. When it's done what you need will reach you.
Meditation helps clear the mind of clutter! Then you can let good things have room to grow and develop.
I hope you will sign my copy when it comes out:)

I'm a great one for internalising stress which comes out in all sorts of minor health symptoms....a friend told me I should meditate, I told I'd tried it but my head is too full of stuff......her reaction? "Sounds like you need to meditate!" :D Maybe I should give it another go.....walking the dog is a great stress reliever.

a very inspiring post - we are facing a big decision with a possible move and i sure wish someone would send me a message telling me the right thing to do. i am sorry i didn't partipate in the party - i couldn't figure out how to link a previous post - not the post that was present when you went to my blog - does that make sense? so my post that did appear made no sense for the party - but i did enoy looking at everyone else's posts!
have a good day -- and get to writin'!
