Love is a hero’s journey, and the hero’s journey is a noble but difficult path. Marianne Williamson
We can be busy and accomplishing a lot, or we can be busy and not get much done. We can tell ourselves we need to look at this, do research about that, but at the end of the day did we do anything that got us closer to our goals?
We probably all have days where we get sidetracked from our goals. Editing can feel like spinning our wheels. We take out a comma, we change a few words and the next time we read through what we’ve written we add a comma and change a few words. Editing can feel like it will never end, but at some point, we have to call it finished, and this may be where bringing a professional in makes sense.
We can only afford to pay someone so much, and because they are a professional they know how to make something better even though it will never be perfect. Is it too late to make improvements regardless of what stage of completion we are at? Our mind has been churning and somehow something we never thought about pops into our minds. We know the answer to a question that has been churning in the background.
Should whatever that is be changed in our life, our art, our fitness, our family, our business, our finances, our relationships? I was looking at information on a writer whose books I like Diana Gabaldon the author of the Outlander series. She wrote something to see if she could write, and all of her books are stand-alone books but also a series. She didn’t know where her journey would take her but she was willing to go on the journey.
Heroes take journeys, confront dragons, and discover the treasure of their true selves. Carol Pearson
Isn’t that what we need to do in life be willing to go on the journey? Does anyone know where what they are doing will lead them? Didn’t people whose lives look like greatness was ordained from above have to be willing to go on the journey? What if the people who lead our countries refused the call? What if the Doctor’s who heal us refused the call? What if the writers and artists who inspire us refused the call?
What if we are all on a hero’s journey? What if we can all refuse the call? What if we do? Not all journeys lead to fame and fortune. Some lead to hard work and raising a family. Can we all be King and Queen of our own small kingdom? What if our greatest journey is to love and be loved and bringing forth the next generation?
Have we refused calls to adventure? Have we given up partway? Where are we on our hero’s journey? Are we a king, queen, prince or princess?
The hero journey is inside of you; tear off the veils and open the mystery of yourself. Joseph Campbell
The cave you most fear to enter contains the greatest treasure. Joseph Campbell
We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. Joseph Campbell
