A Victory for Perseverance

Vista Lrg

Those who have embarked on the journey with me this last year know of the valleys stumbled through, the mountains traversed and conquered, the times when perspective tumbled out of the pack, saved only by love and a deep knowing that lessons and miracles hide where we least expect to uncover them.

We have all been here; the place between the worlds we envision. There can be moments when we hardly pause in recognition at the reflection in the pools we pass. But we keep on, regardless of terrain or the relentless tiredness that beckons us to sleep among the lulling poppies and pull us from the course we long to tread.

And when we keep on keeping on, juuuust when we question our sanity or surrender to what may come, there IT is. The sign that victory is ours, in the moment we choose it and in the rewards of effort, in the means and the way. Sunshine filters through, the clouds scatter and clear and we find that indeed we have not forgotten how to click heals and skip with giddy joy.

Today was one of those days. When the stars aligned and the seeds of opportunity planted (even those I forgot had been sowed) burst into bloom and left me dazzled in their wake.

Because contracts are still to be signed details can’t be shared, but three, not just one but three, glorious opportunities to share vision and message and empower audiences to embrace their heroic, Xtraordinary Game-Changing, selves emerged. The Vista I envisioned appeared, the smouldering fire dancing with sparks of possibility. I am WoWed, I am filled with a deep and sighing peace, affirmed by the truth that…

When we follow our soul’s calling, set our sights on service, have the confidence to apply logic and business savvy and stand tall in our worth ~ opportunity, success and abundance flow free!

I share this with you because your Cape is my Cape, your Soaring, Crashing, Burning and Stepping In and Suiting Up time and time again are mine also. When one of us wins, we all do. And if you feel grounded, know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, know you will fly again. And if you are twisting and banking and swirling on air, then YES! YOU! When we have a hope, let us offer it to others by way our authentic stories. When we need hope, let us gather it close from those who have a little spare to share.

To Your Xtraordinary Game-Changing Adventure, wrought with mystery, desire, loss, gain, courage, and above all Love…
