Excerpt taken from www.dictionary.com
When last you heard from me, I believed I had a clear direction of where I was heading. All ideas were coming into fruition. When it came to my calling, my mission, my why I’m here on this extraordinary planet of ours, transformation of its delivery was eminent. It was in motion.
Then there were a few technological glitches and the transformation I spoke about in my previous post was delayed.
Then for one reason or another it kept getting delayed. That is, the new website I was building and the direction I was taking with my writing and difference making.
I began to hesitate, oscillate between ideas, go round in circles, change my mind continually and doubt myself, not doubt myself in what I have to offer or how I can be of assistance. Doubt myself in my ability to choose the best direction in moving forward.
Hence I stalled.
No movement whatsoever.
No new website.
After a while too, no real discussions about which direction I would take.
Was I simply procrastinating?
If so, why?
Was it fear perhaps?
Fear about what?
Or had I lost my mojo?
Now, several weeks later since you last heard from me I’m not so perturbed by it all.
I now see it as a cocooning, hibernation, resting and recharging before movement well and truly takes place in my life once more.
In other words, unbeknownst to me I was preparing.
Mapping my direction before I moved.
There definitely has been some re-routing. Which at first I wasn’t so sure about. Now I’m cool with it all again and destination revamp is under way.
It’s interesting to note too, that when there is a hiccup of sorts, more often than not we can go into the negative of it, rather than exploring the positive aspects as to why this could be happening. How this could actually be serving us.
It would seem too, I have no real idea about the time it takes to create new directions, new websites, new content, new images, new branding and so forth.
Especially when one keeps changing their mind.
Plus, costs involved when doing so.
So from now on it might be wise for me not to announce so much in advance, until it is all systems go. I seem to have a habit of dropping the ball, so to speak, when I put it out there, ‘this is what I’m doing’ – inevitably it doesn’t happen as planned.
With all this in play, my new website, the direction I’m heading are still in developmental stages and will be revealed as soon as they are ready.
At least I have resumed with my research and writing.
I trust it’s all going to be worth the wait.
Direction, are you clear on yours?
Do you oscillate at times too?
Do you beat yourself up if you take longer than anticipated on a project?
Can you see it for what it is, preparation perhaps, a greater knowing?
